Steve Burton Not Thrilled About ‘Jason Morgan’ Recast

There has been a lot of talk in the last couple of months that the role of Jason Morgan will be recast in the near future. Recently fans have learned that Jason is not actually dead but he is frozen along with some Cassadines. Victor Cassadine has called upon one of Jason’s oldest and best friends, Robin Scorpio to help him help Helena and Stavros (who are in the same predicament as poor Jason). Robin agreed to help in order to save Jason.

With Robin off to God knows where with Victor Cassadine working on saving her friend, the fans are wondering what is going to happen with the role of Jason Morgan. Will he be recast? Will Steve Burton reprise the role? Last month Steve Burton announced on Twitter that he is staying put at The Young and the Restless.

It has been rumored that ex Y & R star, Billy Miller would the the first choice to take on the role of Jason. Although Steve Burton isn’t thrilled about some else filling his shoes as the iconic mob enforcer, he did make a statement regarding Billy Miller. Burton recently told Soaps in Depth, “When all that talk was going on, I said to myself ‘Billy would be perfect.’ It’s a character I played for a long time, and I have a huge emotional connection to him and the people there. It’d be weird to see, but they have to do what they have to do. I understand that.

Now that we have Steve’s blessing to recast Jason with actor Billy Miller, what do the fans think about this potential recast?

General Hospital Casting Call

The Executives over at GH have put out a casting call for a new female character. Although the description of the new role sounds a lot like Sabrina Santiago (actress, Teresa Castillo), we have been assured that this is not to replace the actress.

Teresa Castillo is out on maternity leave but they will not be replacing the actress, however there may be a temporary recast for Sabrina while Castillo is away on leave.

They are looking for an actress to play the role of a young woman who is from Mexico (Sabrina is from Puerto Rico), and wants to build a foundation in Port Charles with a medical career.

What ties will the new young lady have with the current residents of Port Charles? Will she butt heads with Sabrina or become her BFF?

Let us know what you think about the new character announcement by leaving a comment below.

 

 

General Hospital’s 51st Anniversary Preview

You want to know what will be happening on this special day? Today marks General Hospital’s 51st anniversary and it will be loaded with General Hospital history. For starters, we will be able to take a stroll down Carly lane with the three actresses that have played the character over the years. Sarah Joy Brown originated the role in 1996,later to return to General Hospital in a much different role as Claudia, daughter of mobster Anthony Zacchara. Tamara Braun took over the role of Carly until the current actress, Laura Wright has become the Carly we know today. All three women are extremely talented and have made fans fall in love with Carly three times over. Executive Producer Frank Valentini weighs in on Carlypalooza by stating, ”We like to try and take advantage of the history of the show, and in honoring the history of the show, we not only honor the characters, but the actors, We have come up with a fun way for the audience to get a chance to see Sarah and Tamara again.”

Valentini also talks about their strategy for celebrating the 51st anniversary as a whole.  He explains, ”We’re trying to make sure we mine the entire field of rich history that is GENERAL HOSPITAL as opposed to repeating some of things we’ve done. Instead of competing with ourselves, we didn’t want to repeat ourselves. The anniversary episode is really, really special, and there are many, many fun surprises for the audience and many nostalgic moments for them to enjoy.”

The entire anniversary month of April will be packed with history and excitement. Look for Maxie’s return to Port Charles and her encounter with a new guy named Levi. Monica is visited by loved ones, someone gets shot, and Luke’s lies are catching up with him. Don’t miss GH’s 51st anniversary month.

We have all been warned that today’s episode of GH is not to be missed! Tune in today for the 51st anniversary at 2PM Eastern on ABC!

What is Wrong with Luke?

Everyone wants to know, What the heck is going on with Luke? Something is seriously off about the already eccentric and quirky Lucas Lorenzo Spencer. Lately he is acting beyond bazaar, even for him. He has Tracy’s wheels turning, trying to figure out what has happened to him. Ever since he got back from the Miscavige Institute, he has been behaving in a manner that the people of Port Charles and we the fans have never seen before.

The most disturbing behavior we saw from Luke’s character was when he started snorting cocaine. He and Julian have it out for Sonny and plan to sabotage his coffee shipment with illegal drugs. Since this was such an extreme act for this character, what do you think is really going on with Luke?

Here are some theories that have been thrown out there by fans:

Luke was injected with drugs by the Cassadines

Luke is not really Luke and someone is wearing a Luke “mask”

Luke has been brainwashed.

 

General Hospital: The Return of the THREE Carlys!

General Hospital is about to mark it’s 51st Anniversary! This year, on APril 1st, there will be an episode dedicated to all things Caroline Benson, or as we like to call her now, Carly Corinthos Jacks.

Sources are uncertain on whether these comebacks will be in the form of flashbacks, dreams, or if the actresses themselves will be gracing us with their presence as another character on the show. Either way, we will get a taste of each one in the Carly filled episode that is part of General Hospital’s 51st anniversary special.

Sarah Joy Brown, Tamara Braun, and the current Carly, Laura Wright, have all done an amazing job as Carly. General Hospital Blog looks forward to seeing what the producers at General Hospital have in store for the fans.

Head Writer Ron Carlivati Tweeted a picture of Maurice Benard and all his “Carlys” in anticipation for the big Carly episode on GH’s 51st anniversary, this Tuesday, April 1, 2014.

Finally the Truth About Britt’s Baby is Known to All!

There is never a dull moment at a General Hospital celebration. The engagement party for Nikolas Cassadine and Britt Westbourne was no different. The guests at Wyndemere saw quite a show when they went to celebrate with the happy couple. Soon enough, everything played out that way most fans have wanted for a very long time.

Britt’s self-benefiting written confession backfired in her face when Cameron used the paper to make an origami heart for little Emma Drake. The paper ended up in the hands of Nikolas’ ex love, Elizabeth, and there was absolutely no doubt she was going to keep this revelation under wraps. Elizabeth went straight to Lulu with the good news and the proof that she was indeed Ben’s biological Mother, not Britt.

The party came to a screeching halt when Lulu announced the lies Britt has been telling for months on end. Now that Nikolas and the rest of Port Charles know what Britt and her Mother have done, what will happen to Britt now? After the dust settles and Nikolas calms down, will he go running after Liz to apologize for the way he treated her, or eventually make amends with Britt?

Elizabeth’s Love Triangle

It’s been a while since Elizabeth’s (Rebecca Herbst) love life was front and center. For many years she and Lucky stole the stage. After Lucky (Jonathan Jackson) left her and Port Charles, Liz has been looking for love and finding it in the wrong people (AJ- Sean Kanan). What I am thinking now is that Elizabeth may find herself in a new love triangle. After Lucky, she rekindled her old feelings for Nikolas (Tyler Christopher) but her feelings for AJ stood in their way. Now that she realizes she loves Nikolas, and their affair wasn’t just a pointless mistake, he has moved on with Britt (Kelly Thiebaud). I can’t help but wonder what Nikolas will do once the truth comes out about baby Ben. Once Nikolas knows that Britt stole his own sister Lulu’s baby, how would they ever get back from that? Can their relationship be repaired after such a betrayal? My guess is that he will turn to Elizabeth.

At the same time, Ric Lansing (Rick Hearst), Liz’s ex-husband and brother of mobster, Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) is back in town. Sonny isn’t the only one in that family with a dangerous reputation. Ric has committed his fair share of crimes including kidnapping a pregnant Carly and keeping her captive in a panic room- all the while Elizabeth was living in the same house without a clue. He has lied, cheated, and manipulated.

There are two very strong fan bases for Elizabeth and Nik and Elizabeth and Ric. It will be interesting to see where the writers will take this. If Elizabeth was presented with a choice of Nik or Ric, who do you think she should choose? Weigh in and leave comments below!

Britt Finally Confesses!

It’s been a long road for Britt and all involved in her baby saga since she announced she was pregnant with Patrick’s baby last year at the nurses ball. Since then there have been many twists and turns. Britt has made a few “confessions” but never to the full extent of telling the entire truth to her story. Firts, she claimed her baby was Patrick’s, then “admitted” the baby was not Patrick’s but she had used the sperm donation of a random man. Then, it came out that Brad was the babies Father, by implementation. Finally and most recently, the truth was revealed that Dante Falconeri is actually baby Ben’s Father. Britt told Nikolas, Dante, Lulu, Elizabeth, and everyone else concerned that she and her Mother conspired to create this pregnancy. She said her Mother used Dante’s sperm sample that had been in storage for the use of an embryo for Dante and Lulu. However, even still, that is not the whole truth.

Brad is the only person other than Dr, Obrecht and Dr. Britt Westbourne herself that know the whole story about baby Ben. Now that Britt is about to marry Nikolas. the guilt over stealing his sister’s baby is eating her alive. The truth in it’s entirety, is that Britt and her Mother stole the entire embryo that was supposed to be used to create a baby for Dante and Lulu Falconeri. Baby Ben is indeed the biological son of Dante and Lulu. Since the guilt is rising and about to swallow Britt whole, she came to Brad with her feelings and played around with the idea of telling the truth. Brad reminded her that they are both involved in stealing a child and that they would both go to jail. Instead of outing the truth to the rightful parents, Brad suggested that Britt right her confession down. He told her that maybe getting it off her chest in that way would help to relieve her from her guilt and forgive herself so that she can move on and have a life with Nikolas. That is exactly the confession Britt made. Dr. Westbourne poured her soul into a letter to Lulu that she never intends to send. Now the question is… Whose hands will this letter fall into? I am sure that soon enough, someone will get a hold of Britt’s written confession and the truth will finally be out that Lulu and Dante are Ben’s biological parents.
