Great news for Nikolas Cassadine and General Hospital fans!  While Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) awaits news to see if his ABC Family series, The Lying Game gets a renewal pick-up this summer, the talented actor let his fans and followers know via his Twitter account that he is going to stick around Port Charles for now!

Tyler first tweeted on the status of The Lying Game, “So not ideal news for #thelyinggame as it appears that a decision won’t be made until mid summer. Thanks for all your support.”  He then followed that up with another tweet relating, “In the meantime, I’ll still be hanging around #portcharles!

With Tyler still available to film new episodes of General Hospital, could this mean there is a major triangle ahead for A.J./Liz/Nikolas?  Will we then get to see more scenes between Tyler and his on-screen mom, Genie Francis as Laura?  Will more Cassadine drama continue to unfold? 

Let us know your thoughts on how GH should utilize Tyler Christopher in story!

I have always loved his dynamic with Tony Geary (Luke), so I hope there’s more of that. Used to be hatred, now it’s some kind of respect and Luke even smiled at him when he walked in a couple weeks ago.

anybody know exactly WHEN Luke has warmed up toward Nik? I know he used to loathe Nik but don’t recall when and why he warms up to Nik.

I don’t remember the “why,” but I think I remember the “when”–it was when the other actor (Colton something/Steve Martines) was playing Nicholas for those few years when Tyler took a break. It might have had to do with when Stavros was around the last time, in 2001 or so. I just remember scenes with the two of them (Luke and interim-Nik) having to work together on some “adventure” or other and deciding they sort of liked each other after all. Unless, of course, they rewrote that later and put the hostility back into the relations; I stopped paying careful… Read more »

no, I hope Brenda is gone. I used to love Brenda and Jax but the way she pinned over Sonny, I’d wish she would just leave town pronto and never come back.

Very happy to hear the good news about Tyler,even though I like the lying game too. He is a great actor and I love seeing him on any show but, on GH he is very special . I can’t wait to see what storyline they wrote for his character. Thank you Michael for all your wonderful articles. Have a great weekend.

GREAT NEWS !!!!! I adore Tyler Christopher/Nikolas, and am thrilled to have him “still hanging around Port Charles”. One of my favorite characters on the show. Always was and always will be!!!!

So happy to see Tyler back!!! I always loved him! He was always my favorite! Wish they could find a love interest for him to rival his love Emily!! Elizabeth doesn’t cut it!! I don’t like them together…no spark! I agree Jason needs to come back! GH needs to woo Steve Burton back!!! Cut some of these ridiculous characters salaries and pay Steve…..He was the show!! Miss Sam and Jason and now the baby….

Recast jason quartermaine now. steve burton will never come back.

i think that OLTL actor who was mcbain should be recast as jason.

jimh
Guest

That was once one of my suggestions too…this way they could still pair him with Sam…i wonder if any of the three will stay with the show or if they even signed a new contract…seems the old contracts should be void now that they arent continuing their former characters on GH?

TarlyFan
Guest
TarlyFan

no, don’t recast Jason. SB has been playing the role for too long that I don’t think it would be a good idea to recast Jason. If SB ever comes back, I hope Jason will forget about his past as Jason Morgan,,, and becomes Jason Quartermaine again. We have had enough of the mob for the last decade plus. No more mob please.

The contracts were with the actors, not the characters. So there’s no reason they would be voided, even if anyone had wanted such a thing.

Tyler Christopher is sooooo handsome. What a great body! I’m very happy to hear he’ll be hanging around Port Charles for a while.
Please try to get Jason/Steve Burton back. I miss him, and there is definitely something lacking without him.

I am so glad he is staying…. at least for awhile. Wish he was going to stay on forever. He is looking so handsome… and it would make a good triangle love story. Love him with Liz.

this is going to be ONE “HOT” summer story-line.

and i couldn’t be more happier….

I swear… Liz looks so relaxed and comfortable with Nicholas….

and! She’s GOOD w/AJ.

this trio should smolder and burn up our screens….

it’s about time… for another good love story… romance..

and! I’ll say it now…. Emme Rylan IS Lulu…. in fact.. she has that sexy vibe going… as well…..

i’ll always LOVE her best as Lizzie Spaulding…. w/Beth on Guiding Light!

so…

Liz – Nicholas – AJ

nuLulu n/Dante.

Loving the Nicholas/Liz/AJ potential but she put the kabosh on
him yesterday … somehow I don’t think AJ is done though.

Nicholas/Tyler Christopher is just smoldering and I love the tie to
Tracy now to further tick AJ off

I still don’t like Emme Rylan as Lulu, she reminds me a of Siamese Cat; not that I liked Julie Berman’s version either. We’ll see..the jury is still out
on this.

I really wish Milo would go away though. Am I the only one that
does NOT find him remotely attractive?

I hope that Tyler can stay and I hope also do The Lying Game. What will be will be. I don’t watch TLG but I don’t wish him out of a job. I am so happy to hear that Genie, Kin, and Lynn are staying around and that Jacklyn will be back. I think she should come back for good!!

Love Tyler!!! Was hoping you would get to speak with him on the red carpet at the Paley Center… Michael! I love The Lying Game and have watched it because of Tyler! I hope it gets renewed and he can work on both GH and The Lying Game! I would like to see him stop or cease the Liz and AJ relationship… I just don’t like Liz with AJ… would much prefer her with Nikolas… if he would stay for awhile and not leave her so fast! Tyler is looking so great and he’s so fun to have around. Would… Read more »

First of all, very happy that TC will be staying with GH (hopefully, even if LG gets a pick-up, he can figure out a way to do both). Secondly, I wouldn’t mind seeing Nik/Liz revisited, but only if it’s done properly this time. No demonizing the characters for the purpose of turning the audience against them (yes, I’m referring to you, Mr. Guza…Ugh). I’d also like to see Nik get involved in the ELQ s/l, and a new Cassadine mystery would be great. There are so many ways for RC to utilize the character. Can’t wait to see what happens.

The question was how should GH use TC so how this got to be about Jason I have no idea. Some people just can’t let Steve Burton go. I love him to, so I watch him on Y&R. Glad his character is gone. Now on to the important topic. Tyler’s Nikolas has so many story possibilities. First, I want he and Elizabeth to have a chance to see if what they had together before was just chemistry, and boy did they ever have chemistry, or was it the beginning of something more. So I say YES to Liz and Nikolas.… Read more »

As an A.J. supporter I’m disappointed Nuikolas is staying as he has apparently forgotten the damage he caused the last time he and Elizabeth got together. Besides, she brings out the best in A.J., and I want to see their romance as a story of two people seeking redemption from the outside world while seeking out each other. A.J. and Elizabeth have a lot more in common than Nikolas and Elizabeth: they both grew up within their families as the resident ‘black sheep”, forever being outshone by their siblings and also having a history of bad luck in relationships, and… Read more »

I started watching again for the Nurses Ball and am a long time GH fan. However, the Cassadines and Corinthos are concentrated on way too much. I hope they can get some of that mid to late 90’s stuff back. I loved Lucy and Kevin with Mac and Felicia back then, great comedy with those four. Hopefully, the producers and writers can tap back into that and don’t get suckered into the Frisco fan’s revolt and bring his character back again. A character, I might add, that I loved back in the day, so I am not bashing him. Sorry… Read more »

I am a very happy viewer now that Tyler is back! I loved him as a partner for Liz in their past relationship and was very sorry that they broke up. I hope he sticks around for a long time and I certainly hope he and Liz stay as a couple. It will be really interesting to see AJ and Nicholas battle it out. I also enjoy watching the relationship between Nicholas and Laura. Luke needs to get over his animosity toward him. Looking forward to all the storylines involving Nicholas.

Hope Nik stays around a long time. Love him and Liz together. They have great chemistry and they are bonded by their past and long time friendship. Just glad they no longer have to worry about cheating on Lucky. That was just wrong, especially when JJ was playing Lucky. Liz and AJ just don’t do it for me. Feels like Liz is just trying to hang on to a piece of Jason. Add to all that, Liz and Nik are just so pretty together. (Too bad soap stars never get considered for the cover of People magazine’s Most Beautiful People… Read more »

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
