85 November 5th, 2013 General Hospital Casting Sexy, Rich, Charming, Bad Boy! Who Would You Suggest For The Role?

General Hospital’s younger set is about to get a little hotter according to this casting notice, courtesy of Soap Opera Uncensored this morning.

In the casting breakdown, the ABC soap opera is looking for “Caucasian, late 20s. Handsome, sexy, dynamic. Rich, privileged, charming badboy.”  The character is said to be a contract role.

So thinking of the current canvas, who do you think this male character could be?  Are they going to be related to anyone?

And, if you were able to give the casting director some suggestions of known daytime or primetime actors that you think fit the bill on paper, who would you suggest and like to see mix it up on GH? Let us know!

    Does this show really need another bad person of any age?? It is already overrun with mobsters, villians, and outright lunatics. It could already be called General Asylum. Faison, Obrecht, Carlos, Sonny, Sean, Derek, Ava, Jerry, etc. We need more good guys…not bad guys.

    I even forgot a few…Heather, Franco, Carly. I include Carly on the villain list because she ordered a hit on Franco. I include her on the lunatic list because now she is canoodling wit him in a romantic way. Ron Carlivati is good at a lot of writing…but he is really REALLY bad at writing romance and couples. He has NO idea whatsoever how to write for couples with audience rooting value.

    Totally agree, I am all for John Paul Lavoisier!!! He can pull off any character. I certainly miss his presence on ABC Daytime, and would be thrilled with his return!!!

    Its Lucas…since Bobbi is returning this would make sense to me! (but would he be rich?) unless he’s a Quartimaine…as 4 casting im 50ish, slighly overweight with a face that even scares me so i guess i wont bother with auditioning, lol…i dont mind newbies but seriously this show has a few too many characters!!!

    Mary SF replied

    Was thinking the same thing– it seems this will be Lucas. Whether we need another bad boy who needs a good woman to tame him is debatable, but as a over 50 woman, I still appreciate eye candy— so who ever he is I am sure he will be handsome and buff so the writers will find any excuse to have him go shirtless— like Morgan, Franco, Derek and Nickolas– One can only hope those studios are heated because these poor guys are always wandering around half naked. Not that i am complaining, just wouldn’t want them to catch cold– LOL

    I’m pretty sure they a lready cast lucas

    DonnyGH replied

    I think it might be the new Quartermaine heir.

    The “new characters” they’ve brought back have all, in time, been reveaed to have strong ties to continuity, ie: Ava and Kiki Jerome being revealed to be in the Jerome Crime Family, Derek Wells being revealed to be in the Jerome Crime Family, there has been a lot of talk of Lucas Jones, who would be an awesome addition as a love interest for Felix and a foil for Brad, Britch being the daughter of Faision and Obrecht, etc.

    But, the Quartermaine Heir storyline fell by the wayside. This would be a great opportunity to breathe some life into the waning Quartermaine family.

    The character sounds like he will be in Lucas Jones age group. I doubt it’s Lucas because he did not grow up rich, more like upper middle class, plus he was not a spoiled kid.If this is not Lucas, I wonder why they are looking for new characters when their focus should be bringing Lucas back on screen because it looks like the Jeromes are about to be exposed in a big way.

    Forget the useless newbies! Focus on the treasures you already have. The way Finola Hughes mimics the mannerisms, tics, and oddities of Obrecht is absolutely uncanny! She even manages to somehow pull off a bizarre hybrid German/ British accent. Lol. Taken out of context these scenes might seem farcical or over the top but the acting genius is so worthy of an Emmy. But can we please tone down the guns drawn stand offs? They play out like a bad parody of Austin Powers especially with such crunched budgets and cramped sets. Ian B. Is usually an okay actor but the scenes where he entered Wyndemere (they leave the doors open?? And isn’t this on an island? Does a charter boat run there every 5 minutes??) Were terrible! And really…memo to dialogue writers…enough with the enchilada metaphors!!

    Reply

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I always thought Wyndmere was on an island…so if it is guess Leslie and Liz must have taken a boat there with the kids for trick or treat…really? Who would go to one house on an island for trick or treat? Sounds like RC goofed here, maybe…

    Reply

    Jamie replied

    Ok, there’s a launch that transports people to and from the island. I’m pretty sure it’s owned by the Cassadines so they can use it whenever they want. Also, it makes sense that Liz AND Leslie woud go there regardless if they had to use the launch. Liz is his oldest friend, not to mention ex lover with lingering feelings. Leslie is his grandmother and went to take Nikolas’ son, Spencer to see him.

  7. Kate says:

    I’m thinking the casting call is either for Lucas Jones (obvious guess!) or Dillon Q. I’d be happy with Jean-Paul Laviosier in either role (but we know from Dirty Soap he’s not too keen on living in L.A.! haha).

    Kate replied

    I’d also be happy with Van Hansis in either role.

    Dillon Quartermaine comes back to PC or maybe another Cassadine? How about Nic Robuck for the role? He could definitely play charming badboy!

    Sitting in jail according to FV we should be seeing him soon. I am thinking for his swan song but who knows a lot of effort to bring this character back on the canvas and then write him off again to jail. Just an observation am I the only one who thinks the writing lacks continuity? It is like a certain story goes on for a couple of weeks then back table it and bring something else on very distracting for me.

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    It does lack continuty somwhat kay…shows only major flaw imo…i hate getting interested in a storyline that suddenly disappears like A.J.s, and i lost interest in it but the rest of the show is pretty good…

    If it’s for Lucas I would also like to add Van Hansis to my list. If it’s for Dillon, then it has to be John Paul Lavoisier.

    Marie replied

    When will soap fans understand that Van will NOT be cast as a straight guy. He is too well known in the soap world as Luke Snyder and he is gay, which shouldn’t matter but it does. They will not hire a gay guy to romance women figuring the viewers won’t buy it. I’ve heard this time and again. I’ll bet anything that Greg Rikaart would not have been cast on Y&R had he been open about his sexuality at that time as he is now. The same for Neil Patrick Harris on HIMYM.

    Michael S. replied

    Another possible actor for Lucas could be David Loren. He resembles a young William DeVry.

    Late 20′s… hope it is Dillion Q… John Paul Lavosier (even though he is older)!

    Still hoping it is Dillion Q and JP doesn’t want it…Chace Crawford, Drew Van Acker, Gregg Sulkin, Nic Robuck, Conner Paolo, Logan Lerman, or Ezra Miller.

    If it is Lucas… not wealthy… Ben Hogestyn, Nick Robuck, Brant Daugherty, Ezra Miller, or Randy Wayne.

    Some unknown character…Chace Crawford, Drew Van Acker, or Ezra Miller.

    Hopefully it’s Lucas Jones or Dylan Q… too many missing faces in PC these days to swallow another brand new character. They got rid of Johnny Z, Ethan, Matt, & Steve Webber… and they let Lucky and Jason get away.
    It doesn’t sound like Lucky or Ethan, but having one or both of Luke’s sons back on the canvas would be great. JJ is doing great on Nashville, but he has a real life brother that is an actor– looks a lot like JJ. Kyle Lowder probably doesn’t fit the 20s age range anymore but could see him as a good Dylan Q.

    I liked Blake Hood when he was Kyle on Y&R, and Brandon Beemer is such a hottie! Echoing what others have said… lots of out of work soap actors.

    Lucas was not rich or a bad boy or entitled. Unless they are retconning his life and personality. I wish they would retcon his sexuality as just a phase. But I hope this new guy is dylan. Dylan was never BAD just mischievous. We need more Q’s and less mobsters!

    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    I agree that we need more Qs…at least show more Monica…i dont feel this group of mobsters are
    that bad…i like Maura West…and she and Derek are connected to several characters like Alexis, Sam, Silas and Franco…and this group…imo…are far more interesting than previous mobster stories on GH…at least they are not the whole show but i do wish they focused a little more on the hospital since it is called General Hospital!!!

    Well I read with the big budget cuts that Lucas is not coming after all. We got some players being let go and they want to bring in another~ so much for budget cuts. But I do like John Paul L. Would be nice to see him back on the screen.

    If it’s in that late 20′s. It could be 2 of my favorites in the past of this show: 1.) Lucas- since Bobby is coming back on the show. 2.) Dillian- whenever lulu looses Dante and the baby, to Maxie and Spinelle she needs somebody to lean on.

    Reply

    Johnny replied

    Dylan has a history with both girls so it would make sense. I’m just curious how Lucas could have been a favourite. Lol. He had no personality, no storyline, was played by a revolving of actors, and was a “blink and you missed him” character. What about him could have possibly made him a favourite?

    I think Daniel Cosgrove is out of that age group. I just ask that it is not another cookie cutter character. Yeah know the bad boy who needs the good girl to redeem him. On another note, I don’t think GH has flooded the canvas with newbies. They have brought back many characters from the past. No, the newbie serial is Y&R. If you look up in sky, you see another one parachuting in.

    Not necessarily. Laura was too well known for Cassie and Ally, and they hired her. Maura was really known for Carly and her short portrayal of Diane, and they hired her. The higher profile the actor has, more likely people tune in to see them.

    Steve Burton was too well known as Jason Morgan and was able to start fresh elsewhere. Any good actor can break free of their past characters.

    This show needs to STOP casting contract and recurring roles. The series is far too crowded. They could get rid of some of those not used, or under-used. They need to clean house.

    Ron has serious new character syndrome, where he writes new character and then doesn’t feel it anymore. It’s bad. Concentrate on the jam-packed cast you have now. Show us more of who is there, instead of bringing in more.

    So right you are, Scott! There’s waaay tooo much deadweight on this show…TJ, Taylor, Shawn, even Molly, Brad and Felix, and of course, SABRINA and Car-LOS! need to go….just not enough time and space for all these peeps. You have great days with major characters that really move along the storylines, then some excruciatingly slow ones that aren’t worth watching with all the filler. Even today was pretty boring except for Heather, Sam and Silas. Although I don’t mind RoHo as “Franco” he should be given a better drama to showcase his talents (hopefully coming soon with his “crazy mama” to be revealed?) While Diane is always a hoot, it all seemed for naught this afternoon, annnd…the Jeromes are becoming old hat…they failed to thrill me from the beginning, but now their act is just getting stale. About the only fun with that plot was having Delia as Kiki’s gram….also, why are we still being shouldered with Lucy and Scotty? Of all the legacy characters we could have back, they are the least interesting! Laura, Frisco, Noah, assorted Cassadines and a number of others would make more sense given the current canvas than those two annoyances of yesteryear. As for young guns, just return Johnny Z and/or Ethan to PC…both have the charm and history to provide all the necessary excitement for that demographic.

There are simply not enough blond men on the show…everytime we get a new male character, he always seems to be a dark-haired dude. It’s about time to let in a sun-kissed Adonis!!!!
