Filling the void left by the departure of Jason Thompson as Dr. Patrick Drake on General Hospital will not be an easy task for the long-running ABC soap opera.  In addition to losing Thompson, there was one less doctor in the house taking care of the patients at the hospital itself.

Well, now comes word via ABC Soaps In Depth that there is a new doctor on the scene!  GH has cast South of Nowhere star, Matt Cohen in the new role of Dr. Griffin Munro!

Cause Lucas is gay on a soap, which means he just drops by now and then to support the straight people.

i hear what you are saying but gay or straight he is a doctor & was raised by bobbie spencer & tony jones who are two legacy gh characters – tptb/writers need to utilize the characters they have instead of bringing on newbies that are not connected to anybody………………..jmo

Why can’t these new head writers bring on some FEMALE doctors? All we’re seeing is men being added to the staff. In the 70’s, GH was very progressive in that half of the top medical staff & hospital administration was female. Lesley Webber was a family practitioner, & Monica Q. was a heart surgeon. Liz’s sister, Sarah, is supposedly a doctor. And, what about Serena, Scott & Dominique’s daughter? It’s embarrassing how backward GH has become compared to where they were 40 years ago.

Excellent point!!!!!! Unless they are psychotic like Lisa Niles!,, it was nice to see Dr. Kelly Wu on our screens!

I’m not familiar w/ his work, but he looks cute! I was hoping that they would bring back Patrick’s brother Matt (Jason Cook) or bring back the character of Steve Webber. Elizabeth could use some family right now!

Brian

Yes I was saying for sure to bring back Steve Webber and recast him with Chris McKenna who was most recently on Y&R as Det Harding.

Brian…YES YES YES!!!!! Chris McKenna would be AN AWESOME ADDITION to the GH cast…HELL TO THE YEAH!!!!!

Timmm

Good idea. These soaps flip flop with actors. Y&R got Jason Thompson so GH should get Chris. He is awesome! He doesnt cross me as a Hardy, though. BUT we do need doctors!

Reagan

I like that idea! There’s so many good choices out there & he’s one of them!

Well-
he is young and hot … nothing for the older ladies lol

Probably a hookup for Liz, but no sane man would want to deal with a woman who has 3 kids and by criminal/killers dangerous father’s..

MissySnow

Carly and Alexis each have three children with thugs (okay, Jax isn’t really a thug but he did steal Spencer with Carly’s help away from Nik), Olivia has two children with thugs, Sam had two children with thugs, Nik has a kid with a stripper, Maxie has a kid with a hacker/thugs, Lulu has a kid with the man whose father is king of the thugs, etc..

I think Matt may be Nathan’s brother just based on their similar looks.

Timmm

Well the good news is they are restaffing GH with a doctor but it is obvious they cast this dude to be a Patrick Drake lookalike! Handsome guy, not familiar with him or his work. I just always hope anytime there is a new character they can at least act! Maybe this guy will be contented to Hayden?

Jeremy
Jeremy

There’s lots of doctors that could be utilized, like LUCAS for example, GH could’ve moved Ryan Carnes (Lucas) from recurring to Contract. That would opened up more story for him & Brad. And, GH could also utilize Brad, too. Bring back, the BRITCH!!! Where’s Monica, Kevin Collins (he could have hospital scenes, again, too), where’s Epiphany… sadly, missed her at Patrick and Robin’s wedding, Patrick and Epiphany always had fabulous scenes together. Bring Felix & Sabrina back to the hospital. Point is, there’s so much opportunity for established characters who we rarely see, Mr. Matt Cohen is very handsome, but also… use what you’ve got GH!!!

su0000
su0000

Hi Jeremy ..
Bing a doctor on GH is no big deal..
Patrick was doctor standing at the nurses station.
Dr O is doctor sitting at a desk ordering people around
Lucas is a doctor seen at the nurses station every once in a great while
doctors in white coats are props to let us know there is still a hospital ..LOL

Just what in heck is a doctor supposed to do that makes him differently special with the exception he is used less

Rose
Rose

Su… You are so right about the doctors on GH. There actually seems to be more doctor/hospital action on Y&R. Liking Dr. Neville, but wish they brought in someone to GH like Vincent Iziirarey/David Hayward. Even I wouldn’t mind keeping my appointment with Dr. H. And what interesting stories you could write around him.

Shay
Shay

Oooooh, Jeremy….You had me almost to the very end…. until you mentioned Felix and Sappy! I could do without them like….forever! But “The Britch” is another story entirely….I still miss that girl! Along with her magnificent “Mutter,” she was one of the very few newbies to have actually made her mark and earned her place on the GH canvas. Her special sort of foxy, fabulous fun has been sorely missed! “Bring back the Britch,” indeed!

Donna
Donna

I agree! Why they ever let her go and then bring in the Hayden character is beyond me. She brought a lot more to the story-line of GH. Miss her.

Fanny

I think he would be far better suited for Lucas.

No doubt Lucas would agree, Fanny!!!! (But not Brad….you remember Brad?)

great casting

Scoma60

Thrilled that GH hired a new doctor. They need to put Lucas on contract as well.I’m disappointed this new doc isn’t tied to GH’s history.
They need to bring back Drs Sarah Webber, Tommy Hardy,jr and Jeff Webber as Chief of Staff.
If I was running GH Dr.Andre would have been Tommy Hardy,jr and Curtis would have been a Ward.GH has great history yet TPTB ignore it.
I’m so fed up with Mobster Central. Get rid of the Mob or at the very least quit trying to sell Sonny/Jason/Julian as good , heroic and honorable men. They’re murderers. Plus, making Paul another thug was stupid. He should have been a corporate shark.

JanieP
JanieP

I agree with some of your points and respectfully disagree with others. Paul Hornsby could have been a corporate shark and Lucas needs more airtime. However, some of the characters you mentioned have not been on the GH canvas for years (I remember when Jeff Webber left in 1981! and Sarah left GH over 15 years ago). New characters need to be able to be introduced without having DNA ties to characters pre 2000.

Shay
Shay

@JanieP….I take your point about Dr. Jeff, and I certainly wouldn’t care to see Richard Dean Anderson reprising his pre-McGyver role, but the show could use a patriarchal figure like Drs. Hardy and Quartermaine once were. A distinguished recast—as long as he’s also drop-dead handsome—would fill that bill, and don’t forget, Jeff still has two ex-wives hanging around Port Charles…Monica and the incarcerated(?) Heather…..interacting with them could be fun! As for Paul Hornsby, I agree….he should have been more of an upper crust, white collar criminal and less of a secret mobster….his trashy antics, especially with Ava, have just killed the character for me, and that comes as a huge disappointment, since his arrival was one of the few I’ve actually welcomed over these last few years.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)
Jimh(leave it to beaver)

He reminds me of RP-Nathan in this picture-great for CeeCee-lol…hope his acting is better…but here we go again with a newbie-if he has a vet connection fine but lets stop going this way and that way…i feel like im pulled in two directions with the shows cast…legacy characters make me feel like im watching GH and then there is other characters who dont feel connected to the other characters that make me feel like im watching a different show…by the way there is Lucas-bring him on more-he is a doctor.

I don’t know what void he’s filling, they rarely wrote a decent story for Jason, so why would we expect any more for a new actor. They don’t write for the Doctors they have now. Monica, Brad, Lucas, Kevin, Matt Hunter, any of these would have been great o have actual stories for. Not excited

yeah, he’s not bad, he’s been in how to get away with murder and other primetime shows so he’s got experience and he’s really good looking hot body too.

Rodd

I saw him on HTGAWM and he’s someone to watch. Good catch for GH. Hope he’s introduced slowly, as there are already too many new characters on the scene. I want to like his character…or at least like to hate him. :0)

Melissa
Melissa

He was great on Supernatural. And he’s totally dreamy! I have high hopes

Jules
Jules

He should have been a recast for Dr. Matt Hunter- an already established character with ties to the cast and canvas, and left with unresolved story to tell. He has the resemblance.

Wishful casting to beef up the med scene would also be a SORASed Lila Rae- a sort of Quartermaine who fits the young crowd, but unlike most of them, also has ties to the show. She could be a med school student. And Skye could return or at least make appearances.

Steve Webber needs to come back too, as a support for Liz and an established Doctor, and voila, you’ve got a couple of viable employees at General Hospital.

…..But you know. I’m sure we’ll all grow to care about Griffin Whatshisname.

Shay
Shay

But, but, Jules, aka “My Favorite Canadienne!”….your suggestions make far too much sense! Rather than introducing recasts in roles we already know and love and that have historical ties to the canvas, apparently what GH really requires is even more ill-defined, newbie misfit characters to join the swollen ranks of those other smashing successes better known as Sappy, Val-Chops, Carrrrr-LOS!, Nina, Jordan, Hayden and……well, you get the idea!

Jules
Jules

Shay, you never change, you little devil! Hope you had a marvelous new year!

Timmm

I think it was su0000 who once said that if a writer or EP creates a new character they get paid more or get a bonus? I dont know. Maybe thats why we dont see more connections with these newbies to the oldbies?

Jules

Tim, that’s a myth that’s been refuted by nearly every EP and writer. It gets said a lot but has never been proven true.

Jules
Jules

Though, it would be a decent explanation. I wish there were a real reason.

Rose9

I like your idea of a Matt recast, but I”m ready to give him a try for whoever he is.

But I wonder if they tossed the idea of bringing Matt (Jason Cooks version) back? Jason Cook just did a quick few scenes on Days but didn’t want to be locked into a contract. I hear GH is really good at being flexible with their people. Sounds like a great fit, a good actor, someone already mixed into the canvas, good chemistry with people already there, and a doctor.

Trudy

I’d like to see Jason Cook back, too.

Patrick is gone so a Matt Hunter recast would be a waste!

Thank you, Jules! Same to you! I only wish I could change my tune, but until GH sees the light and makes the appropriate revisions that are necessary to better the show, well, then, I’m just going to keep on singing!

wow, he could have easily been the drake recast! interested in seeing how they weave him into the mix.

Dan
Dan

At least they didn’t bring in someone new as a recast of Patrick Drake, that’s what I was afraid of. I’m fine with him being a new character. Give him a fresh slate to create a new character, rather than trying to fill Jason Thompson’s shoes, or anyone else’s shoes. Unlike some commenters here that are already passing judgment, I’m gonna wait until I actually see the new Dr. Griffin Munro on screen and give him a few months to settle into the role, before I make a judgment.

He definitely passes the looks test, now let’s hope he can act. Welcome to GH, Matt Cohen!

Timmm
Timmm

IF Robin and Emma were to stay I would be open to this guy as a Patrick recast but Patrick has no reason to be on canvas now. Hell, they barely gave JT anything to do in 2015! BTW, Griffin Munro sounsd like a distant cousin to Jethro Bodine!

su0000

I do not get the excitement over a Doctor..
So what??
All a Doctor will be doing is standing around the nurses station doing nothing
Or, if we ever get some drama he can remove a bullet..

It’s no big deal the character is a Doctor, it does not advance him in anyway except he gets to wear a stethoscope and stand at the nurses station.

and for godsake STOP pairing every off, GH needs some awesome bachelors living the good life, as a bachelor. Many are Doctors lol
The world is full of desirable hot bachelors and it’s about time GH had some.

Jonathan (@4EverJohnnyBoy)

Based on this past week’s episodes of GH, I’d say we could assume this new doctor character is linked to Lucas given the phone call he made on Sonny’s behalf to find him a new specialist after that rude doctor showed his nasty attitude. Seems a bit young yes but given how GH has dropped the ball on all the gay-oriented character stories this could be a way to freshen things up. It’ll be interesting to see how it plays out once he hits Port Charles next month.

Laurie
Laurie

He looks great & I hear he acts great. I’m all for staffing up GH, but PLEASE use Lucas more. He is so handsome and such a good actor. He’s a good guy like Patrick was and the audience knows/trusts him. Use BOTH of them.

This is true, jimh….Carrrrr-LOS! may be a mangy, blood-thirsty killer, but at least this time around he performed a public service to the community of Port Charles!

DYLAN

He looks like Joey from Friends. It sure would be nice if soap writers had the memory and attention span of the viewers. Instead of flooding the canvas with newbies, as GH has been doing for years, they could have solidly enriched the families they already have on the show. When will a regime, ANY regime, remember Jimmy Lee Holt…Edward Quartermaine’s son? He could have any number of children in their 20’s and 30’s who could all be brought on to enliven and repopulate the Q mansion. There are Webber’s and Hardy’s out there that haven’t even been seen yet. Instead of giving murderers in their 50’s new infants, the show could be delving into its own rich history. It is borderline ridiculous having actors like Nancy lee Grahn, Maurice Benard, and William DeVry, whose characters are all just south of the age of 60, playing Who’s the Daddy storylines!! Nancy played those 30 years ago on Santa Barbara, when her charaqcter was already an established, successful lawyer. Julian was revealed to be Lucas’ father over 25 years ago in actual screen time. It gets so tiresome to see characters never changing, never growing, never maturing, and writers who are so bereft of creative and age appropriate material. I have great respect for Jean and Shelly, two women in the most thankless, almost unthinkable roles of having to clean up the disaster that Ron Carlivati left in his wake. I feel they have been almost too considerate of some fans in continuing many story threads, and keeping some actors around and trying to make sense of their stories. What this show needed upon their arrival was an epic Port Charles disaster that claimed the lives of at LEAST 10 pointless, extraneous characters. Plane crash, explosion, biotoxin, whatever…this show has a bloated cast and many of the characters just do not work outside of the Carlivati mindset. It would be like Claire Labine inheriting a show from Jim Reilly…….losses would need to be cut and fat would need to be trimmed.

Harry
Harry

Dylan, are you saying this doctor might be Dr Jake Amore’?
I hope he takes the stairs and stays away from the elevator.
But I agree entirely with your post. I welcome a new addition as long as he is connected to core characters, he is well written and he can act.

You’re so right, Dylan. This show has so much history and so many possibilities of new characters from legacy characters. Instead, we get endless newbies with zero connection to anyone from the past.

Shay

Thank you, Celia! That tacky guttersnipe could never be YOUR daughter! LOL….

Shay

I’ve also suggested some mass disaster is in order to clear the GH canvas of all the extraneous deadweight amassed during the Cartini regime, Dylan. Alas, the stubborn insistence upon keeping all of these awful, unimaginative characters that are dragging down the show defies any sort of logic whatsoever…..

Maybe “Dr. O.” had twins…..then again, with this show’s propensity for casting this particular type of “cookie cutter” male, it could very well be triplets or quads by the time the newbie parade winds down….if it ever does!

I would love a new focus on the hospital. A story that allows us to re-engage with the “title character.” Let’s give some shine on everyone out who matters, clean out those characters who do not, and promote those who could make a difference (yes to Lucas). Consider history, legacy, and future. I miss the hospital and those everyday goings-on that linked the scenes and plots (those days of Lucille, Jessie, Amy).

Okay are we starting a pool to find out how long it will be before the show has him shirtless? His first scene? His second? Someone put me down for his episode, fourth scene—- and it will either be Sam or Liz who walks in on him half naked– LOL

He’s already been tested with and chosen to be Liz’s new love interest. Some of us have known he was coming for awhile. He’s already ruined if they put him with Liz imo. The funny thing is the first time I saw him, I thought he reminded me of Scott Reeves who played Liz’s brother Steve Webber. Oh well, I guess time will tell. I moved over to YR when JT left. Enjoy the new eye candy though.

He’s a very good actor. I’ve seen him on Supernatural. I agree that veteran characters who are doctors should be brought back, but since this actor is good I’m interested to see how his character will be written. I’m always hoping for more hospital centered stories.

While I would also like to see Lucas (Ryan Carnes) go on contract, new writers are always going to want to create their own characters/legacies. It’s not only ego driven, but financially driven.

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part Four: Joss Sings For Oscar, Valentin Takes The Stage, Kevin In Dire ‘Straits’, Ava Waits For Ryan

The conclusion of the GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 episodes brought with it emotional moments and performances from the stage, and major drama with yet to come ramifications for several people of Port Charles.

After Ryan (Jon Lindstrom) knocked out Kevin and switched places with him, yet again, the serial killer is on the loose at the ball. Later, when Scott (Kin Shriner) is backstage and is upset about Ava’s (Maura West) relationship with Kevin, Scott comes face-to-face with “Kevin” and having enough, tries to grab Scott’s hand to stop him from leaving. But, lo and behold, off comes his prosthetic hand.  Next, Ryan clubs Scott over the head, who now is the only person that saw Ryan at the ball.

Elsewhere, Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) confronts Willow (Katelyn MacMullan), after overhearing her conversation with Diane that she has a child, and he asks here if she was pregnant when she left “Dawn of Day”.  She claims she miscarried their child, but he refuses to believe a word out of her mouth and becomes irate.

Courtesy/ABC

Michael (Chad Duell) saves Willow and warns Shiloh to stay away from her and his family. An out-of-sorts Shiloh heads back to his table where Sam (Kelly Monaco), Lucas (Ryan Carnes) and Brad (Parry Shen) are.  Shiloh informs Sam that he just found out someone had his baby and deceived him.  Lucas and Brad are both alarmed.

The first musical performance of the episode was Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) rendition of Seals & Crofts classic, “Get Closer”.  Wally Kurth and Lisa LoCicero remain one of the endearing duos on the show.

Meanwhile, the question. and of course. the big musical finale hinged on Josslyn Jacks (Eden McCoy), and if she would perform the song she wrote with Oscar (Garren Stitt) at his request and in his honor.  In the best scene of all the ball episodes this year, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds a conflicted Joss outside the ballroom.  She says she thought she was stronger and could do this, but she isn’t.  An emotional Sonny shares with her how Oscar will always be with her, and be OK with whatever choice she makes. Sonny relates it back to Stone and his relationship with him while the young man was living and while he has been deceased.  Maurice Benard and Eden McCoy delivered in this tender scene.

Courtesy/ABC

In the next musical number, Valentin Cassasdine (James Patrick Stuart) attempts to calm down a drunken Nina (Michelle Stafford), who is all out of sorts due to her hatred of Willow.(and perhaps her lust for Jax?), by taking to the stage to perform his number.  This time, Stuart plays the piano and sings “Nothing without You” by Vienna Tang.  And once again, Valentin wowed the audience, and James sang beautifully, as he has each year at the ball.

Still undecided if she can perform, Josslyn worries she’s letting everyone down. Jax (Ingo Rademacher) comes to see her and reassures her, saying she doesn’t have to prove anything to anyone, she just needs to follow her heart.

Finally, Josslyn makes the decision to perform, and that she does in the emotional high point of the episode.  As she performs this song about the list of things she and Oscar were planning to do together before the young man died, and how she will carry it with her, she sees Oscar in the back of the ballroom in his tux singing with her and rooting her on.  Kudos to Eden McCoy for being the heartbeat of this year’s ball, along with Lynn Herring, who the ‘ball’ would not be the ball without Lucy Coe,

Courtesy/ABC

As the Nurses’ Ball winds down, Shiloh is becoming unglued, and as Sam tries to calm him down, he tells her she needs to finish her initiation tonight.  He says he needs her to be in the ‘trust’ and he needs her strength.  Oh-oh!  Will Sam go through with this to trap the guy, or are we going to witness a major backfire?

A massive light bulb has gone off in Lucas’ head and he tells Brad he believes Willow and Shiloh are Wylie’s birth parents. Brad doesn’t know what to say, and we all know why!

As Lucy is instructing the clean up crew to take everything down on the stage, the curtains open and Kevin is suspended in midair hoisted up, knocked out, and trapped in a straight-jacket!  Everyone is horrified.  Cut to Ava who is at her safe house preparing to kill Ryan all by herself.  She gets everything in place, while she sips on some booze and waits for Ryan to arrive, and sure enough, we come to the cliffhanger.   Ryan sees Ava from outside the widow.  What will happen next?

So, what did you think of the final installment of this year’s Nurses Ball? What did you think of the performances from Joss, Valentin, and Ned and Olivia? Will Ava kill Ryan, or will someone else do it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below. But first,check out Josslyn’s AKA Eden McCoy’s performance below.

General Hospital’s New Opening Title Sequence

Last Friday on the May 17th episode of ABC’s General Hospital, viewers took note of a new version of the opening title sequence of the daytime drama series.

Some thought perhaps it was tied to the GH Nurses’ Ball episodes since that is when it debuted, but in fact, it turns out it is the new updated title sequence moving forward.

With slower images of the cast, new theme music, and the end graphic plate bringing back the hospital image; thus far fans have seemed to like the new and improved version from what was previously airing.

THURSDAY: E! News Daytime Drama Deep Dive Visits DAYS, GH, and Y&R

Mark your calendars for a very special segment on the soaps, when E! News delivers their Daytime Drama deep dive on Thursday, May 23 hosted by Giuliana Rancic and Jason Kennedy at 7pm-8pm ET/PT on cable’s E!

Look for set visits, interviews, retro clips, and more with some of the most famous and enduring characters in the genre.  Here’s just a sample of what to watch for:

When E! News visit the set of Y&R, Eric Braeden recounts the time Victor was feeding his wife Julia’s lover trapped in the basement dead rat; while Tracey Bregman (Lauren) reflects on why the viewers love the relationships and families in Genoa City.

Teschner remembers: “Meghan Markle actually had her first speaking role in television on General Hospital.  She worked on the show in the background as a nurse, and we brought her up to read her to see if there was something there.”

Steve Burton chats on the craziest story he has ever played as Jason Morgan, revealing, “The one that always pops into my head is we had to go catch a monkey that had a virus, and I said to Laura (Wright) I think this is probably the end of my career today.”

The E! News special segment will show nostalgic clips from all the daytime dramas, including Luke and Laura’s wedding on GH, Marlena’s possession from DAYS, and some of Victor’s nefarious schemes from Y&R.
