5 March 21st, 2012 Daytime Favorite John Reilly Added to the Cast of THE BAY!


Best known for his role as Sean Donnely on ABC’s General Hospital, The Bay has cast soap veteran John Reilly in the recurring role of Mortimer, the Garrett butler.

Described as the gatekeeper and glue that holds the dysfunctional Garretts together (as best as he possibly can that is), creator Gregori J. Martin says “Mortimer is to the Garretts what Jiminy Cricket is to Pinocchio!”

Reilly shoots his first scenes this Thursday, March 22nd and will first air mid-May. Other daytime credits of his include NBC’s Passions and Sunset Beach and the primetime soaps, DALLAS, Dynasty, Paper Dolls and Beverly Hills 90210.

Season 2 of The Bay picks up with all new webisodes on Thursday April 26th, 2012. For additional details, visit:

    Can’t believe Sean wasn’t at Robin’s funeral when this actor was CLEARLY available…

    I was thinking the same exact thing. Tiffany and Sean should have been there. I used to watch big time back when they were major characters on the show. I know that they have budget issues but I think that they could have worked something out. At least have Anna on the phone with them telling them that she passed. Also where was Jagger Cates? I know that Antonia Sabato Jr said he would come back if asked.
