More intriguing casting news this week from General Hospital! 

Wes Ramsey has been cast in the newly created role of Peter August.

Ramsey, who is known to soap audiences for his role as Sam on Guiding Light, as well as Days of our Lives and on the digital drama series, Venice, will begin appearing on the ABC soap in a key November sweeps storyline.

Look for Ramsey to show up on the November 14th episode.

As fans have witnessed over the last several months on social media, Wes is currently dating GH’s Laura Wright (Carly).  Will Carly and Peter cross paths in story?

The talented actor took to his Twitter feed after TV Line exclusively revealed the casting news today stating: “An exciting new chapter!!!”, and “So thrilled to finally be able to share this!!! Port Charles is a dream come true!!! #grateful

So, what do you think of Wes joining GH? What type of character will he play, and who do you think he will be linked with in story? Comment below.

Jimh…I have come to the conclusion it is GH in name only.

Well said, Jimh. GH should have a revolving door out front. Sadly for the good ones they unwisely let go and for the new ones that dock for a while. It’s ridiculous.

I won’t pretend to claim I watched every epi of GL but I couldn’t remember him. There’s a reason. Both wiki and IMDB have him at less than ten episodes. Blink much?

I wish every actor well. So I’ll do the same hear. But it’s not the return of Tom Pelphrey, is it?

I wish Tom Pelphrey was on a soap again. He’s too talented and handsome not to be.

Sam was Olivia Spencer’s brother. I think he was on GL for more than ten episodes.

No. He played Olivia’s brother for almost 2 years and returned for guest spots too. This is going back 17 years, mind you. I like him as an actor. I had NO idea whatsoever that he was dating Wright!! Viewers have spoken…..they do not like short term stunt casting that goes nowhere. Why not look at the canvas, and see some holes that need filled, and THEN bring in some of these bigger name actors? For instance, Lucky is gone. This actor is in that age range. Lucky is a character viewers WANT to see, and is a character that… Read more »

IMDB is wrong (as it often is, unfortunately, in regard to soaps–and it wasn’t that way in the early days, so I don’t know what happened). WR played Sam, Olivia’s younger brother, for about two years, on contract, circa 2000. It was when Claire Labine was the head writer. Sam was part of the teen set at the time and involved in a triangle with Marah and Tony. After GL, he did some independent movies but then sort of disappeared (or maybe I wasn’t paying attention to the right sources of information), other than Crystal Chappell’s web soap Venice. He’s… Read more »

Laura was married for many many years. I believe she divorced in 15 or 16. Regarding your comment of them being “sold on the concept”….I totally agree, and isn’t it sad? I am loving the show actually right now, even though it has actually come full circle back to the Guza/Phelps vision of the Sonny/Carly/Brain Damaged Murderer Jason. I don’t get it. Fans have LOUDLY proclaimed their dislike and disdain for that version of GH. Message boards are there for people to read, and you can’t tell me that the powers that be don’t read them, so WHY is the… Read more »

Wes Ramsey was a contract player for several years on GL and on way, way more than 10 episodes. Wiki and IMDB are flat-out wrong. He played good guy Sam, an aspiring journalist who worked at the local newspaper with Holly. He was the younger brother of Olivia (Crystal Chappell) and tried unsuccessfully to keep her on the straight and narrow. He was in a love triangle with Marah (Reva’s daughter) and bad-boy Tony (Jordi Vilasuso). Marah, of course, went for the bad boy and broke his heart. He’s a fine actor, very likable and watchable.

Hey, su,
Never heard of him either…I looked him up. What a hunk!! He looks sooo young!!
There’s a picture of him with LW. I thought he was her son. HaHa……not that much age difference; but, he does not look his age. Very youthful appearance; comparatively speaking, that is.

I had no idea Wes Ramsey was dating Laura Wright. Interesting since they were on Guiding Light together like 15 years ago (geez!) when his character Sam was interested in her character Cassie’s niece Marah.

Another new character? Don’t care. Where are the lovely Laura and Kevin? Where are Bobbie, Mac, Scotty, Felicia, Lucy, Monica, Brad, lucas, Molly, TJ????
Characters disappear for weeks or months at a time.

I read a rumor elsewhere that they might be bringing this guy on as a Nikolas recast, in an attempt to redeem Val the Bastard from being a murderer. Considering Claudette – the other person Val was said to have murdered – is also rumored to be returning, this would be consistent. Perhaps both of them were stashed in the Russian clinic, since we know Val has some influence there…… and even if this guy is not a Nikolas recast (I don’t think they should bother with the character until Tyler is available) he might be involved with the clinic… Read more »

He’s gorgeous, sexy and talented but GH already has too many men. We have two Jasons and only one Sam. Lizzy is with Franco and so one of those three men will be the odd one out.
Amy’s brother is coming to the canvas, Tamara Braun is coming back as Oscar’s mum and Brie Williamson is coming back as Claudette.

I loved him on GL and everything else I have seen him in! I hope he isn’t going to be a wedge for Sonny and Carly. I wouldn’t mind him being a Nicolas recast, since I think that character is sorely needed in PC, but I also liked Nick Suble (sp?) when he finished out Nic’s story line. Hope Wes’ character is on for more than a month and isn’t involved with the Russian clinic. That being said, I have the feeling that GH is the show where out-of-work actors apply for bit-parts just so they qualify for their cards… Read more »

I’m thinking he may be Oscar’s father…Tamara Braun probably his mom…both will come in contact with Sonny and Carly.

OLTL Favorite Susan Batten to Guest-Star on General Hospital

A very familiar face to the town of Llanview and the beloved One Life to Live, will be appearing on your screens this week on General Hospital.

Susan Batten (Ex-Luna Moody, OLTL) will make a few guest appearances in scenes with Sasha played by Sofia Mattsson.

According to the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstand now, Batten will play the role of home shopping-star Flora Gardens!

Batten former boss, Frank Valentini (executive producer, GH) called Susan and said about the role: , “Okay, there’s this character named Flora Gardens.”  To which Susan responded, “Does she have teeth?”   After the two shared a laugh, Susan said “yes’ to the role.

OLTL fans will remember Luna’s torrid relationship with Max Holden (James DePaiva).

The actress/writer/producer reported that she was a ‘still very nervous’ acting on soap again (she last appeared on One Life in 2012), but said once she got into the rhythm of the shooting and delivering the lines it was all good.

So, looking forward to seeing Susan on GH? Comment below. But first, take a moment to stroll down memory lane in this clip from OLTL, when Max proposes to Luna.
