According to a tweet this afternoon from Thaao Penghlis, the actor is heading back to General Hospital to reprise the role of Victor Cassadine!

Penghlis tweeted, “Have been asked back to General Hospital to explore the new escapades of that charming but mischievous rogue Victor Cassadine. Stay tuned!”

So what will happen when Victor returns to Port Charles this time?  Will it have to do with Robin’s research work on Jason, Stavros and Helena?  Or, will it have to do with his past love, Dr. Liesl Obrecht (Kathleen Gati)? Or, some new mysterious mission?

Let us know why you think Vic is heading back to town …  and if you are happy to hear of the return of Thaao!

Well GH likes to play ‘who ya daddy’ or momma…lol, so Victor needs to return so Nathan can finally meet his ‘daddy’…also it might have something to do with the return of Jason(Billy Miller) and Patricks wife Robin(Elizabeth Hendrickson)…ok folks im just guessing!!! LMAO!!!

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Plus maybe to romance Nate and Britts mutter…Dr.O…lol

SO happy for him to return. I love him as an actor, as well as Victor, who can be both menacing and hilarious. I hope he stays for a long time.

They have obviously set it up for Nathan to be Victor’s child with Obrecht, which I think is AMAZING. You can never have too many Cassadines, and it’ll be interesting to see how that also affects Nik/Britt.

Cannot wait! 🙂

Agreed….Victor was always my favorite Cassadine, and it’s a true shame it took so many years to have him return to GH. He should have been romancing and menacing the denizens of Port Charles (ala Tony Di Mera) long ago….although I am more than happy to have him back now as Dr. O’s erstwhile(?) beau, Nathan’s most likely daddy, and God only knows what else, I will still feel a bit robbed that we didn’t get Victor in both his and GH’s most prime decades.

He’s coming back with Robin and Billy Miller (nuJason)

I want him to return with Jason played by Michael Muhney!! The other Cassadines can stay frozen. They do not need to return. MM and BM is the only additions that FV needs to add to the show.

please ,no more Y&R Rejects.

Melissa

MS, MW, BM and MR(Lulu) are not rejects, they are great actors that JFP is too dumb to notice because of her obsession with SB and trying to replace top actors with all of her FOJ’s. who could not act their way out of a paper bag. Y&R’s lost is GH’s gain.

Timmm

Rejects are Levi, TJ, Jordan, Nathan, and Rafe!

He’s great and I really enjoy his character—hopefully, there’ll be some scenes with Dr. O!

Luv Thaao Penghlis!!
Victor Cassadine will return for his son James/Nathan ..

Dr. Liesl Obrecht played by the great Kathleen Gati and Victor are the parents of James now Nathan …

It will be a father son mother, story… more so than any other..

Patrick
Patrick

don’t forget Britt

have to add…

they may need to stear clear right quick… Nina from Silas and Sam…

Britt and Dr. O are good actors… who have never had a problem… throughout the whole cast… and with Nina with these two… even with Nathan…. throw in some Brad… and you have a nucleus that the production can strive for

ahem…. Kevin would be major stimuli for … this close knit talented “family”

Patrick
Patrick

ps: the GH production would be wise to steer clear of : Billy Miller as the nuJason… he could be a morgan or Q… and it wouldn’t save or add any thing….

imagine Billy Miller as Patrick younger brother recast Matt… played by the best… Jason Cook….

but… BM as Matt… would be tantamount to revitalizing… Dr. Patrick Drake as well….

imagine… Patrick and Matt…. vying for… the affections of : sisters/step sisters Britt and Nina

va va voom

through the roof endorphins testosterone… making love

Patrick
Patrick

have to throw ideas out their… other than… all the hoopla spiral no where… as Jason…

the days of king pinning with Sonny as his henchman… are long gone

the writers will not write for the Q’s… inasmuch as the fans scratch and claw for

they didn’t do it for AJ

adding him as matt… w/Patrick… would envelop with : Britta, Nina, Nathan, Dr. O, Madeleine, Nicholas

see how many bases this covers….

it’s tiring and waning… time to close the chapter on Sonny… he’s better left supporting… with much respect… ie: example… he’s better featured like Luke and Tracy… not much but when they are on… it matters

it’s overkill at this point

mob feature is a bust… but seams easier to write for… as human interest stories are better left to the imagination… and news

su0000
su0000


FV would never cast Billy Miller as Jason or AJ, it would never happen..

Patrick
Patrick

Marquee : Nina – NEEDS – to have A set back

that kiss was unrevelatory…. meant nothing : so “far”

she’s in the hospital

Billy Miller (@Matt) returns’ including physical therapist and minds the revelatory… MS

it’s introduction times

Britt wants to meet her sister
good acting begets good acting actors and time with spent

sisters/ or 1/2 on with out but show : Britt and Nina w/Nathan, Dr. O., Madeliene

Matt w/BM is steadfastly caring for his sibling… his blood… they re-unite

Matt is at once fetched with becoming Britt… and Patrick nears his bro and hes enchanted by Nina : his prospect her his alliance with outs his new becoming : Matt and Patrick forge

Nina realizes (20 years catch a clue) and moves on…. it’s Kevin, her psychotherapist, Matt , her physical therapist… Britt, nathan, Dr. O., with distraction Brad : all with

his tantamount

so you have brother and siser/ 1/2 going

it’s combustible

i’d watch all live

Patrick
Patrick

Britta and Matt aka Billy Miller
Patrick and Nina

I’d throw in Nicholas and Kevin to stir – even Sabrina as this just helps everyone do their stuff…

this is a good start to steering away from those who think it’s a no go with :

Nina mixing in with Sam and SILAS : may be a waste of energy and talent pool

Timmm

Nathan needs a recast if your going to put him with Thao, Katherine, and Michelle.

Omar

His scenes with Kathleen Gati were mesmerizing..Want to see more..He is Nathan’s father..A recast by Billy Miller is possible…Also, I am certain that he will be involve in the return of Jason, which can only be played by Mr Miller..he will be the perfect recast for Jason Morgan Quatermaine.

GH is on FIRE…It has lots of flaws but it entertains like crazy!!

Patrick
Patrick

“…GH is on FIRE…It has lots of flaws but it entertains like crazy!!”

I’ll reiterate… a LOT of flaws but rolls with it and goes far

entertaining and short on intelligence quota but beware how beloved this genre be

I hope we get to see some romance and fleshing out of humane for Dr. O as she’s on the threshold of weaning or mother hen’ing her brood… the affable able delish delight brain tantalize reverberate her being… with son and daughter… James/Nathan and Britta

crosses to bear : I think not… she’s ahead of the game… plots the mundane eclipses and thwarts less than

LOL

Kathleen Gati is our current day herculean shakespearean… grande dame

Shay
Shay

Amen to the “a LOT of flaws” part, Patrick, but good golly, Ms, Gati is the sole saving grace of this regime and their endless parade of newbies! Her Dr. O. brings it to the canvas every time she appears, no matter how briefly…she always leaves us wanting more!!!! I am sooo ready for a proper storyline for this vexing vixen of vim and verve…grande dame, indeed!!!!

Robin is not returning.. Robin is not returning..
and why do so many believing Jason will return..
I do not see Jason returning..

It could be year or more IF it were even going to happen..

As of now the Jason character is dead and gone and not even a mention of him in any context.
.. do not hold your breath for a return of a Jason any time soon-
not going to happen .. 🙂

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

Jason has been mention…maybe not alive but the AMAZING DR. Robin left town to bring him back alive…Victor and Robin talked about this b4 she left so Jason was mentioned…i dont think he was dead…i think he was alive and suffering from amnesia all this time calling himself Billy Abbot…lol

On this past Friday’s Show, Patrick said he wasn’t a good as friend to Sam as she is too him, then Patrick flashed back to Robin saying she had to save Jason.

I never liked the Jason character and frankly I hate when actors come & go; it disrupts storyline too much. I say keep Robin gone and let Patrick move on already.

Happy to see Thaao return to GH? I’m overjoyed to have him back! Aren’t you happy too Michael? I think Victor could be involved in more than one storyline. He could come back with Jason Starvos and Helena and have the Cassadines be in power once again against the Jeromes and Sonny. He could come back for his son Nathan and his mother Dr O . Or give him a whole new love interest. Would love to see Victor and Ava join forces .Better yet give Thaao a contract ! Damn right I am happy to see Thaao back on my screen.

Why does this casting news excite Ron Carlivati wAY more than it does the rest of us who WATCH the show?

harry
harry

Johnny, Ron is that guy at the buffet line who fills his plate up with everything until it’s heaping over.
He can never eat all that food–his eyes are bigger than his stomach and all that food that he choose goes into the garbage can.
I would apply this buffet metaphor to his tendency to over cast GH.

Omar
Omar

In Ron C’s defense, he is the head writer NOT the Executive producer..Frank Valentine is the man in charge, and in his defense, overcasting GH, is the only way to add more viewers in my opinion..It works!!

Sure it makes the show more watered down and we do not get to see certain characters day in and day out, but adding big daytime favorites from other shows, whether they are still on the air or not, will make viewers curious to see their favorite soap actors and that equals BIGGER ratings…I for one stop watching GH many years ago, but only tuned in again when the OLTL 3 came over, and now I been watching since. In fact, GH ratings have gone up since then…BIG TIME..

There are only 4 soaps remaining and lots of talented and super popular actors with lots of fan base without a job..If this is a way to hike up the ratings, I am SO for it. I know lots of fans of OLTL will be tuning in for the FIRST time ever to DOOL just to watch the talented Ms Depaiva return to daytime soaps..Some of them might get hook on the show, since its very good! AND that equals BIGGER ratings..Sorry to say, but that is all that matters in the survival of our genre!

I am supportive of anything to help our genre regrow and hopefully a new generation of daytime serial dramas will emerge…Long shot but possible.

Well I am not falling for the spin— he is returning– for how long? A day, a week? They had all this hoopla about Donna Mills joining the cast and she was on for how long? A month at most with a lot of other stories crammed between her appearances. I am really weary of these “big” announcements, which amount to nothing really. Don’t get me wrong enjoy TP and like the character Victor, but a recurring character used merely as a way to move the plot, to my mind doesn’t equal a real cast member. So I will enjoy seeing him on screen for a few shows, and yes technically that is returning, but it is misleading as well. If he has a contract and is staying for a year or more then I will be excited, but not until.

I miss my favorite Cassadine of all, Stefan Cassadine played only by the very talented Stephen Nichols! I hope Stephen comes back to GH someday, but if not, I hope he goes to another soap soon. Well, maybe not Y&R. He wasn’t a FOJ and therefore totally expendable to her on that show.

Happy ? Thaao is back to GH—- of course- overjoyed!!! Can’t wait to see Thaao back on my screen (where he belongs!!!) Looking forward to all the intriguing storyline potential here & hope to see more of Thaao’s Victor & Kathleen’s Dr.O . Hope this is not just another temporary tease. Would love to see Victor/Thaao in Port Charles indefinitely. No matter what will enjoy every moment. Thank you Mr. Carlivati, GH, & ABC!

Wish Thaao would come back to Days. With James, Allison, and Nick leaving, they are going to need some strong actors to come in to keep momentum up. Thaao is an excellent actor, and world be great to have him on again.

Patrick,

I agree. They a going to need some strong adult actors/characters to keep the show going strong!

Thats the good news. The better news would be to keep him on for a while. Its frustrating when GH rolls these big names in and out occasionally and then you dont see them for a while. Dont bring them in unless you are going to use them. Mac, Felicia, Lucy, Scott, ect. We get the OLTL crew shoved down our throats every week!

Timmm

Nathan as a Cassadine? Probably but the actor who plays him is too weak. Handsome guy but think of the Cassadines, he is too light and fluffy and shows no range of emotions.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
