Ingo Rademacher wraps up his current visit to General Hospital as Jasper Jacks next week on September 26th, but a show source has hinted that the popular leading men may be coming back to Port Charles for more visits down the road!
In the meantime, in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, the actor had the opportunity to clear the air in regards to his controversial tweet that he put out in January, when it was announced that then One Life to Live’s Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati were moving over to General Hospital as executive producer and head writer, respectively.
In the tweet, Rademacher seemed to also take to task the handful of actors that were also coming with Cartini to Port Charles. The tweet in question read, “It seems like the new show should be called, “One Hospital To Kill” Oops to late … I tweeted that. I’ll take the blame. Just kidding Not.”
Rademacher now tells SOD what he meant by his words: “It was a more of a go at the network because they were killing everything. I was sitting there one day thinking, this would be appropriate for what they’re doing. That’s what it seemed like. Now they did a lot of firing. It was way overdue for a change there. So my new name now for the show is ONE HOSPITAL YOU CAN’T KILL. I think they’re realizing that those talk shows and cooking shows and stuff, it’s just too many of them right now. You had The Revolution and The Chew and they’re both the same almost.”
“There’s a lot of soap opera fans out there and you really notice it when you get around the country. Everywhere you go people watch the show. It would be a real shame if they got rid of them altogether. Maybe people will get more into it now because there aren’t as many choices. Hopefully, it will pick up more viewers.”
So soapers, what do you think about Ingo’s clarification? Do you agree? Would you like to see Ingo back on GH more often? Weigh-in!
