    Finally! I knew they had to be casting Morgan! They’ve mentioned him enough the last few months. Hope it does well. That must be a tad bit intimidating going into scenes with such “dominate” onscreen parents. lol.

    He looks like he has really SORAS’d… how old is supposed to be? He and Molly are supposed to be close in age right? He will be with Carly, Sonny, Michael, Molly, TJ and Rafe. He will probably be with Lauren when she comes on the canvas… they met at school or something. I wish it could have been Araon R again… but he is very cute! Can’t wait to see what will be happening!

    He’s probably a year or two older than Molly.

    Robin delivered Molly on screen in 2005. She’s super aged as it is so I don’t think it really matters at this point how old they are compared to each other.

    kara anderson replied

    I think not

    kara anderson replied

    I say 21 years old there are different like his siblings

    It’s probably how this shot was lit, but they wouldn’t cast someone older than Chad Duell.

    He looks like an 18yr or so..
    Anyone with teen aged sons can see that :)

    He looks too old and kind of dumb! I wish they would have killed him off ! I am going to take GH off of record for the summer and just enjoy catching up in the fall! It has just gotten flat with bringing back all the old characters! And then playing up the barely teenagers!! Are freakin monkeys writing these scripts!

    Why is that gross? It’s about time GH did a proper same-sex love story like Days is currently doing.

    richard replied

    Why is that gross???? Evolve with the rest of daytime, this is 2013 :)

    Debbie replied

    Eventually the writers will pair Felix with someone. Felix is looking for a dating relationship, even pining over straight men ( such as Milo ) that he knows deep down inside can never be.

    Mia replied

    TG Morgan was basically raise by Jax not Sonny.

    MK replied

    The first (and Good) actor who played Morgan, looked like he would be Gay. Hoping they continue with that route. Imagine Sonny and Carly having to deal with this? If Bobbie had issues with Lucas, Sonny certainly will. He is still too young for Felix, but may Lucas will come home and mentor his cousin and hook up Felix in the process?

    Mia replied

    Felix just may get a love interest in the form of Lucas Jones, Bobbie & Tony’s son, I hope so I lime Felix. :-)

    Mia replied

    *like not lime… omg

    ethel replied

    “looked like he would be gay” what does that even mean??????
    do people from the gay community have a certain look???? you need to stop making obnoxious comments like that…………..

    I whated jax to be his father not sonny

    kara anderson replied

    yes

    ideally, it would be a love interest for felix. would be interesting to see sonny deal with that. but he’s probably too young for him.

    He’ll be the school bully that picks on Rafe. Since some gh fans say Ron C. copies stories from his OLTL days…i had to predict the possible bully storyline before they did. lol

    Reply

    Mia replied

    I highly doubt that Morgan comes on as a bully he wasn’t around Sonny or Jason that much growing up. Unless it’s something he picked up on in military school I don’t see it happening.

    Reply

    jimh replied

    It was just a guess…not really sure what theyll do with him…i said the bully suggestion because OLTL and some GH fans have complain in the past that a few RCs GH stories are similiar to some of the stories hes done on OLTL!

    jimh replied

    You dont have to be around someone like Sonny or Jason to turn into a bully…ive seen all sorts of bullies who act that way for various reasons and you it doesnt matter if you come from a good or bad family. Some teens just like to pick on someone because they just want attention and think its cool to do so. They might do out of jealousy or for no reason at all. There are all kinds! But i doubt RC will do another one but you never know!

    kara anderson replied

    mia
    you are wrong

    kara anderson replied

    he will not bullying rafe

    Reply

    jimh replied

    I only wrote the bully comment because some fans in the past have complain that some of RCs storylines for gh are recycled from his writings for OLTL…

  7. tarlyfan says:

    He looks a lot younger than Chad Duel, probably 4-5 years. I wonder if he would embrace Sonny’s mob lifestyle or Jax’s corporate lifestyle. On second thought, Guza is gone so Morgan would probably a good kid.

    Reply

    CTwildheart replied

    I think he would be more into Jax’s corporate world…but then if he is rebelling – it could be the mob. He does have Sonny’s blood coursing through his veins after all…

    Mia replied

    FV got rid of the mob so…

    CTwildheart replied

    I know what you’re saying Mia…but as long as Sonny is still on the show – the mob is still there. We may not hear about it or see it as often, but it isn’t completely gone.

    Gross! You people are disgusting!! Is this a room full of NAMBLA supporters or what?? Morgan is a child of 15 or 16. And…NOT GAY! How disgusting to suggest pairing a straight child with a grown effeminate creeper type nurse!

    Reply

    Robbyrob replied

    Wow Ashlee….you on the other hand are super GROSS!!! You seem to have a chick fil lay burger up your hind quarters. So a grown male nurse is a creeper?? What century are you from and you actually comment like this on Michael Fairmans site? Something tells me Dr. Phil would have a field day with your comments alone. Your comments are very scary and they say more about you than I. I’m confident in my skin but cannot say the same for you. You sound very threatened…over what I don’t know….oh, yeah….an effeminate gay man. Just curious but how would you know about NAMBLA????

    Kelly replied

    Ashlee – you need to get a life and stop being so homophobic. There’s nothing “gross” about having a gay themed love story. Granted, Morgan may be under 18 when he comes on so it may not be appropriate for him to be paired up with Felix – because of his age not due to his sexual orientation. I for one would love to see Morgan be gay and having to deal with coming out.

    matthew replied

    I bet Ashlee is really Melissa Reeves trolling this site. Screw you and your hate chicken that Robbyrob mentioned Melissa. And I pray to god you choke on your waffle fries!

    ethel replied

    “ashlee” your comment is asinine, totally inappropriate & very uncalled for……….smh

    Ashlee u should really be ashamed of yourself……..

    Are there no gay soaps?! Not to be rude I don’t care what people do or who they do it with but I have been watching GH since I was born and to have to fast forward through any more then I should just give this up or try to get into gay love scenes! Sorry I do get grossed out no to mention I don’t want to get into it with my young kids. I am not going to watch it just to be a PC Zombie! I guess it is time for me to grow up and get a new hobby! Sucks everyone I know knows GH is my obsession.

    I am SO happy that GH is finally presenting a true and accurate depiction of gays through the characters of Felix and Brad. It‘s about time! :)

    I’m looking forward to Morgan coming home. I hope they don’t have him come back as a trouble maker. Morgan was always the child with a definite sense of right and wrong, and a good moral compass. He’s the one I thought could grow up to be a lawyer and give Sonny grief about his lifestyle. I hope they don’t give him a complete personality change.

    I think having gone to military school he should have a good sense of self discipline and show leadership traits. PLEASE don’t have him come back as a punk with attitude.

    I foresee him lasting for a year just like Kristina. Then he’ll be gone. I can’t possibly think of a good storyline for him.

    That is why you aren’t a writer.

    JustSaying replied

    Wait and see. He’ll be out because Michael is the “golden boy” and Molly is the “golden girl”. Have you noticed they haven’t written anything for Kristina lately? Not even for the Nurses Ball, and yet Molly was there.

    CTwildheart replied

    Yeah, because they let the actress playing Kristina go. We will wait and see. There are MANY story lines I can think of – too bad if you can’t.

    Tandy replied

    I am with just saying on this character not lasting! Maybe he would be a better writer than what GH has now; simply for passing on boring pointless storylines that will go nowhere or just drop an undeveloped character off because poor writing/acting! The only thing they have done right lately is bring Nick back with less shirts!

    Ashlee calm down! Some people in life are gay and aren’t going anywhere. Just because you are discriminating doesn’t mean the majority of people watching soaps are.!! If you want good wholesome right wing Republican entertainment then watch a televangelist, not day time soaps!!

    Last time I checked, free speech was still legal. Amen to THAT!

    John G replied

    Why do people always associate their hate with free speech? Free speech does not give you the right to be malicious to people. That is your own self-serving agenda created from either your ignorance, upbringing, own since of self importance or all of the above. But what it is not is a constitutional right to be an @sshole.

    I‘m very curious about this. So…I am a hateful, disgusting, gross, bigoted, self-serving, ignorant asshole because I do NOT approve of older men sodomozing young children. I have not insulted anyone, and I am the one who has been viciously attacked on here. So…ANY opinion is fine unless it differs from yours?? So much for your so-called tolerance, understanding, kindness, and acceptance, hey? WOW! I CAN‘T EXPRESS a perfectly valid opinion on here without being insulted and called every name in the book. It is YOU who are the hateful, closed-minded ones.

    Ashlee replied

    This is not a personal venting line. Michael Fairman works too hard and produces an awesome site. You are more than welcome to e-mail me directly but let‘s not disturb Michael‘s soap site anymore. I will continue to post my opinions about ALL things soap related and I just hope no one chooses to make it personal anymore.

    CTwildheart replied

    Ashlee you HAVE insulted almost everyone here. YOU said, “Gross! You people are disgusting!! Is this a room full of NAMBLA supporters or what?? Morgan is a child of 15 or 16. And…NOT GAY! How disgusting to suggest pairing a straight child with a grown effeminate creeper type nurse!”

    Morgan is AT LEAST 15 or 16, it is very possible they will age him some to make him 18. And you have no idea whether or not Morgan is gay! If he is, so what? Then you call Felix an effeminate creeper type – what? You must think all gay men are effeminate, even though they are not. You also think he is a creep, I have no idea why. Do you think all gay men are creeps?, because that is what it sounds like. So you called me disgusting and dissed all gay men. Sorry that IS insulting.

    If this is too personal for you, oh well. You posted it.

  15. Joshua says:

    There have been too many actors and actresses in the roles of Morgan, Michael and Kristina over the past three years (8? 9?), that I can’t invest in this.

    Sure as the world, 8 months into this kid playing Morgan, the show will fire him just like they did Lindsey Morgan. Just when we were beginning to like her as Kristina.

    I really like Michael now that he is now longer a murderer-in-training. I love the relationship he has with AJ and love that he is for all intents and purposes out of Sonny‘s orbit. Him and Starr became a lovely couple and I hope they are re-paired when Kristen Alderson comes back as Nu Whoever. I wish the new youngster playing Morgan all the best. I hope they do not turn him into a Sonny mini-me. I hope he can hang with Molly and TJ and Rafe and that set and they can just be depicted as normal teens. Are there any new spoilers on the new roles the OLTL contingent will play?

    rumors that ME will be Mark Clay, brother of Stephen. KA will be Serena Baldwin. RoHo will be either Alexander Cassadine/Quartermaine, son of Alexandria Quartermaine and Tony Cassadine… or Eric Quartermaine Jr, son of Jimmy Lee Holt.

    tarlyfan? did u read about who the oltl three would be coming back as cuz it sounds very interesting..I knew Frank & Ron would come up with some exciting ideas..

    Ashlee replied

    Cool! Thanks Tarly. I had heard Kristen may be Serena. That makes historical sense definitely. I would love if this show would finally address Jimmy Lee Holt. My aunt had the serious hots for him when I was a kid. No regime has cared to deal with him…he could have 6 kids by now. I think Roger is a little old to be Jimmy Lee‘s son though, no? Roger is in his 40‘s. I guess that doesn‘t mean much. Cady McClain is 43 in real life but will be playing at least a 60 year old in the AMC reboot…as her grandson is now 17. Lol. Anything can happen on soaps. I would like to see Rog as more of a hero. He has played the same character for so long…he played Todd on OLTL, then Todd oops I mean Paul Ryan on ATWT then Todd on GH. Whoever Michael plays, I hope it is not brooding/monotone like McBain. Ideally, I wish they dcould be the originals. This will effectively end any future GH/OLTL crossovers and that is a shame. I have always loved watching when soap worlds collide. I think it would be beyond cool if ABC or Prospect Park Could bring characters from long defunct shows like Ryan‘s Hope or Edge of Night or Loving. That would be awesome, and I dont understand why there is such a reluctance to do things like that.

    janet replied

    I agree. We don’t have a lot of mob and I hope they never go back there. The Morgan before the last one was very likable and he should return. Enough gay/not gay. felix can be funny but, he is also over the top .I hope they write these teens better than they did OLTL. those teens were not likable especially Jack. he was a brat. Summers coming. lets have a story about the real teens they are mostly young teens.so stay there. We know jealousy rules, and lets have more fun. Another girl is needed. Plus we need more romance. We need love stories remember*love in the afternoon*. No more murder in the afternoon. No more six gun killers no more MOB.
    Plus why can’t Rafe be the Q heir he looks a lot like AJ.

    And when did ‘gay’ become such a big deal? It is what it is. Part of ONE LIFE. Hence, it is part of the LIVES be they TURNing, BOLD & BEAUTIFUL, YOUNG & RESTLESS, CHILDREN, or in a HOSPITAL.

    Gay people are part of all people. Hello?!?!

    I have no problem but I don’t want to watch just like I don’t watch fishing shows or someone gutting a deer, thug life shows, pregnant and a teenager shows, the chew and other cooking shows, anything to do with celebrities lives, ect. As you can see there is quite a bit of crap on tv that I refuse to watch! If someone is grossed out by two men or two women kissing why do they have to be a BAD PERSON or wrong! Or is they should just have to watch it enough so that they aren’t grossed out! I have been watching GH forever and already fast forward through alot of it during in a borings storylines. I am not PC and don’ t think someone should have to be someone else so that they don’t offend someone else. Just be polite and respect others even if you disagree! I usually watch GH while I am doing laundry, my baby is asleep, and my husband is working. It’s always been something I enjoy but if It starts to change into storylines that is a turn off to me then it isn’t worth it to me. Then I won’t watch anymore. They will write the stories to entertain who is watching. I will find something that appeals to me. Being “gay” doesn’t “bother me” being beat over the head with the “gay” hammer bothers me! Don’t be heterophobic! Don’t give your opinion if you can’t respect someone else’s.

    I’m excited to have Morgan back! But I wouldn’t be surprised if he got mixed up in Sonny’s world. He was shipped off to military school, barely mentioned again by his parents or his brothers, even Jax forgot about that kid and he was more a father to him than Sonny… He’ll probably come back angry and raise hell.

    Anyone know anything.

    But they said Jax was hanging around, and he hasn’t been seen, only but to usher Brenda back in Port Charles and thus dump her.

    There has been talk about being beaten over the head with same-sex storylines, but compared to the amount of male-female love scenes, there are hardly any. You don’t have to be PC but you are being close-minde. We live in a world of diversity and soaps are realistically trying to portray that diversity. If it bothers you so much, you probably shouldn’t be watching these soaps and you should probably move to your own deserted island.
