A major casting call has gone out from General Hospital! In it, it details that the ABC soap opera is looking for a “Bonafide leading man.”
Further details of the casting notice relate, GH is looking for an actor who is caucasian, 32-37, very sexy, dynamic and charismatic.
Acording to Soap Opera Digest, the role would start shooting in November, and it’s a contract role for a new leading gent.
When this casting news hit the Twitterverse today, some fans are tweeting that this may actually be a casting notice for a possible replacement for the character of Patrick Drake played by the incomporable Jason Thompson. It has been rumored via Daytime Confidential that Thompson would be up for contract negotiations this time of year. Should the GH star decide not to re-up his deal with the series, it would be a tremendous loss for the soap, who needs to give this perennial Daytime Emmy nominee, story worthy of his talents.
So, on face value of the casting call, if this is a new leading man/character, what actor would you like to see come to Port Charles and join the cast that fits the bill? Share your suggestions in the comment section below!
