Courtesy/ABC

Looks like another sexy heartthrob is on his way to Port Charles in 2015 with casting news today out of ABC’s General Hospital.

The soap opera is looking to cast the contract role of a “Caucasian, late 20′s. Handsome, dynamic, sexy.  A charming bad boy who gets in and out of trouble.”

So, who could be the next bad boy on GH for someone on the canvas to be smitten with? Who could this guy be related to on the current canvas when he arrives on the scene?

Put on your casting director hats again today, and let us know is there anyone who had a role on the soaps in the past, you think could fit the bill? Or, is there someone from primetime TV that you would love to see nab a part on GH?  Or, perhaps an intriguing newcomer you know about it?  Share your casting considerations in the comment section below!

    What was the point o “trimming” the cast recently, if all they’re going to do is stuff it back up again? I don’t even watch anymore, and even I think it’s criminal casting John York to the side. How insulting to this longtime, loyal actor. Guza/Phelps never downgraded him, but oh look! Ron and rank have no problem with it.

    But then again, “Caucasian, late 20′s. Handsome, dynamic, sexy”? I guess those characteristic are too hard to find on soaps these days. What out of the box kind of thinking will they come up with next????

    I do not see the cast being ”trimmed”
    I do see some cast members doing other projects and all are still of the GH cast..
    GH has short stint/guest appearances that can be in story for any length of time, it varies..
    the think vets like to come in and out but not stay..
    I’d bet RC and FV would give much to have the character Johnny Z/Brandon back, yahbetcha ..!
    It is not always what RC or anyone else would like it is if the person/actor wants to be back and how much time he/she wants to be back..

    I see RC, FV and team trying to build up the Q’s..
    I would guess the young guy might me a Q ..
    maybe Ned’s love child or some such thing..

    It was dubbed by media outlets that the 3 recent downgrades were for that purpose. Most began their coverage saying that it was “a long time coming” because of how much bigger and bigger the cast was becoming. But to be fair, I didn’t see it as a trim either. 3 in a lineup of 40+ is not a trim…it’s one of those haircuts you have to flaunt in people’s faces before they say, “Hey, is that a new shirt?”.

    However, I don’t think you can make blanket statements like ones you make. I think you are projecting your own feelings quite a bit.

    Timmm replied

    su0000, I like your idea of Ned having a child out there to shake things up. Why not just recast Dylan?

    Nick D. replied

    York’s contract didn’t guarantee him many episodes anyway. My guess is he will be seen just as with the same frequency now that he is recurring. The upside for the actor is he can audition for different roles without being tied down. If recurring is good enough for Felicia, Lucy, and Duke I’m sure it will work just fine for Mac.

    I’d rather see more of Mac, Lucy, Duke and Scott. They ARE GH…or at least part of the original crew. While I welcome new characters…I have no problem with that…I don’t like to see familiar, loved characters pushed to the side to make way for them.

    As for a hot, young actor? Love John-Paul Lavoisier, Mark Lawson or David Gregory…all from OLTL and all good actors/stunning guys. Not sure if Ron and Frank would use any of them for fear of the backlash by anti OTL people who complain GH is being overrun by OLTL people. Even with that, hope one of them is in the running…

    How about the guy who used to play Rex on OLTL. I think his name is John Paul Lavosier?

    mfarris70 replied

    That was my suggestion, too! I wonder if the character is Tracy’s son Dillon? If so, Lavoisier would be perfect to trade barbs with La Quartermaine.

    …and why does GH need this character??? Lenny Platt ex Nate OLTL if this newbie has to be!!! and let him run off with Kiki two days later…lol

    LOL

    YES !

    “… let him run off with Kiki two days later ”

    Chad Duell’ Michael… who changed his name to Quartermaine… does not make him a main draw OR pull. still snore

    Carly : hope she rots waiting for Sonny

    oye! for the great tenure of RC/FV… doing away with Connie was the biggest

    attempting to write “any thing” for Sonny, Carly, Michael, and Kiki is too dull

    now…. : if GH really needs a “Q” … bring back Robin Christopher as Skye with her real daughter to play “lyla Rae” it was ?

    just buku bucks to further stronghold the REAL women

    Carly, Ava, and Skye

    rehire JOhnny Z full time… and you’d have all the menfolk needed

    could this “thread” be a hint that this guy is in his 30′s and is really Michael Muhney

    dang it DAYS : hire , hire, HIRE him…. pronto…. he has DiMera written all over him

    “OH i’m so dim”

    I’m with you, jaybird. Steve Burton? No, thanks. Egglesfield? Sure, I like him, but this role has Marco written all over it.

    Steve just resigned for another year at Y&R.

    Steve B signed another year with Y&R but he was a yawn anyway as Jason was written…he is still a BIGGER yawn as Dylan.

    Another character who will probably drool all over Kiki. Blech.

    If anything, that age group needs some girls. Why is Kiki the only leading lady in that age group?

    Reply

    Ces replied

    I think Morgan needs a girl for sure. Rosalie isn’t even in their age group and looks too old for Morgan and Michael – plus she already gave Michael the goods so she’s pretty useless now.

    William Hall replied

    If sleeping with a brother or sister of a character makes one useless, there are a whole lot of “useless” characters active in soaps.Lol

    Harry replied

    I know, C. Kiki is going to get a big head. I mean that figuratively, of course, as she is already there literally.

  7. Reagan says:

    Can we not get Steve Webber, Jax, or Ethan back. Maybe this IS an Ethan recast!! I think I say this every time there is a casting call but can we please 1) have the character tied to on canvas, legacy families (like the Q’s or perhaps a long lost son of Mac’s, or a Hardy character) and 2) can we get someone we miss seeing from another soap, especially a cancelled one.

    Having said that, there are not a lot of past soap-ers in that age range compared to all those in the late 30s, 40s & up. Here are the ones in that age range that come to mind:
    1. EX chad form Days (can’t remember his name)
    2. David Gregory from OLTL (or one of the other Ford brothers)
    3. Blake Hood (ex Kyle on YR that should not have been recast to begin with)
    4. Eric Nelson from the AMC reboot– while he is the right age range he might be too young looking

    What ex AMC, OLTL, ATWT, GL guy in that age range am I missing?

    Jimmy replied

    I totally agree about Blake Hood! He was really good as Kyle, he looked exactly like a younger version of Jack – even his personality was similar. Hartley Sawyer on the other hand, was terrible in the role. Seriously, one of the worst recasts in recent Y&R history. I didn’t see the point of the recast, especially for someone who didn’t fit the part at all.

    I like the idea of Casey Diedrick! He’s very talented and would fit the bad boy role well.

    Blake and Peter were great. Hartley was horrible!

    LUCKY or ETHAN please!

    Jimmy replied

    How about both? It’d be great for Nathan Parsons and Jonathan Jackson to come back, but it seems like they’re both happy in primetime. I still really think Lucky, Ethan and especially LAURA should have been here for the whole Fluke story.

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    Thats a huge hole. Luke/Fluke and no Genie or Julie. Jonathan would probably only return if they killed off Luke and Anthony retires because the two actors were close and have a great deal of respect for each other.

    This sounds like Dillon Quatermaine, Tracy’s son and Ned’s brother. FV and RC love casting young, hot men. Geez, guess Ryan Paevey is old news LOL. But love beefing up the Quartermaines!!!!!

    Jimmy replied

    I really hope it’s Dillon too. If it is, I suggest David Tom for the role. If the casting call is for a different role, then maybe Casey Deidrick?

    Reply

    Timmm replied

    Yeah I like David Thom. He is a good actor. He didnt cut it this time as Billy because the character grew too much.

    richard replied

    David Tom would be an AWESOME Dillon Quartermaine!!!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Thats who i said would make a great Dillon when David Tom was foolishly let go from y&r…glad others think he’d be perfect for the role!!!

    David Tom is awesome. He would be great as DQ or any role.

    If they are to make something out of Rosalie, then maybe it is a relative of hers. I mean they have to reveal this big, bad secret of hers one of these days and I am sure there is someone we have not been introduced to yet that is involved.

  12. Jimmy says:

    I really hope this casting call is for a recast of Ethan, Lucky or Dillon and not a brand new role, unless they plan to tie him to the canvas somehow. And to be honest, if they are planning to add another 20-something character to the canvas, it should be a recast Serena Baldwin. Scott is in town and she’s a legacy character that could potentially shake it up with Micheal, Morgan and Kiki. Seeing as Kiki is the only girl in town in that age range, the last thing we need is a new character drooling all over her.

    As for actors, I really like the idea of Casey Deidrick (ex-Chad, DAYS) or John-Paul Lavoisier (ex-Rex, OLTL). They could definitely pull off the bad boy type. I just don’t see what necessity this character will have when there are so many characters without much to do these days, and actors that are underused. Plus, there are many characters that are expendable and need to go before new characters are brought on, like Sabrina, Britt, Jordan, Shawn, etc. I just hope they know what they are doing and this character doesn’t become an aimless snooze fest with no purpose.

    Timmm replied

    Serena would be good if Scotty isnt on the back burner.

    Yeah, why don’t they cast Serena Baldwin?? She’s long over due to be in PC! Kim Matula would be perfect to play Serena!!!!

    Yes, Michael Muhney sure gets my vote. The only problem is he is busy making movies. He will start filming his 4th movie in January. I sure do miss his gorgeous face on my TV Screen. But his Christmas movie is coming up Dec. 20th. Cannot wait to see it. He was the most talented daytime t.v. actor in forever. Love his talent. I am a Muhney fan for life.

    I hope this is a Dylan Q recast, but I think Dylan is possibly a few years older. If it is DQ, I always thought JPL or Josh Kelly would be great in the role. If not, I could see Casey Diederick in the role described.

    When Scott Clifton and JPL were both on OLTL you could hardly tell them apart. lol.

    No new characters are needed, there are so many characters on GH that are not used enough. But if I had to choose it would be Dillon!! We need our Quartermaines back on the show :)

    I am at such a loss as to what Michael did that was so fascinating. He played every scene with the same.expreasion…whether he was sayig Hi or I Am Going To Kill You. I much prefer Justin H as Adam.

    No, you have MM mixed up with Steve Burton. Steve is the one who plays every scene with the same expression. Michael Muhney was the best thing that ever happened to Y&R. Jill Farren Phelps destroyed Y&R and Bill Bells legacy.

    Um…no…I said MM and I meant MM.

    That would be beyond awesome. But that would mean RC would have to dig into the glorious past of the show and the Quartermaine’s, and introduce a character with believable family ties that viewers could immediately root for and love. And well..he doesn’t do that.

    I loved John-Paul Lavoisier as Rex and he would be good but if it is Dillon why don’t they try for Scott Clifton. Hope his love interest on Bold and Beautiful, Kimberly Matula is leaving B&B. Maybe Scott would be interested in coming back as Dillon.

    When will Michael Muhney appear as A.J.? He didn’t die but was given a drug (like Juliet) to make him appear dead. Then he was smuggled to a long term care facility to recoup. Monica was behind it in order to protect him from Sonny.
