95 June 2nd, 2016 Ingo Rademacher Returns To General Hospital This Summer!

Courtesy/ABC

Fan favorite Ingo Rademacher is bringing his debonaire Jasper Jacks, known to all as “Jax” to ABC’s General Hospital this summer.

According to a rep for the ABC daytime drama series, the actor will return on July 29th for a major story.  And as fans know it looks to be tied to the mystery surrounding whose kidney did his daughter (with Carly), Josslyn Jacks, actually receive! As it turned out that believed donor was little Jake upon his death.  But since the child was revealed to be alive, clearly something else happened, and someone else was the donor that saved Jax and Carly’s (Laura Wright) daughter’s life.

Ingo is back on a recurring basis this time out.

Are you excited to see Ingo back on GH?  What do you think wil happen when he returns? Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

    I like this—now all we need is for Brenda to come back.

    I agree James, come on GH call Vanessa Marci. Brenda Barrett needs to come back.

    Never really like him. He will be another body Sonny can bully. ["Candy Boy"] He and Carly will be shoulder to shoulder with this kidney story so that will set Sonny off and it will be the same thing as usual!

    Its good to see a legacy character. So, that is the good news. The bad, like you said, we’ll see.

    Harry replied

    Oh I like him and he makes Sonny look like the small and ridiculous man that he is–which is possibly why MB does not want him to be around.
    Moreover, Carly was always at her all time best when coupled with Jax.
    I remember when Morgan looked up to Jax as a role model. He is five hundred times the better father, husband and man that Sonny is.

    k/kay replied

    Well he has gorgeous blue eyes and you can understand him when he speaks he needs to come back and take his daughter off the screen since they aged her to be older then all the other brats ! I think this show is struggling and I see them maybe tying up loose ends before they have us cooking with Caitlyn Jenner! Lol

    Timmm replied

    Beautiful eyes but f’d up hair! My problem is he never stands up to Sonny. Then he takes Sonny’s Brenda and then Carly and now who knows what he is doing or who! I wish he would come back and be strong and knock the grease out of Sonny’s hair! But, he wont.

    PS: Prayers for your sister, it has to be tough. Stay strong k.

    Harry replied

    Wait, Timm–Jax stood up to Sonny time and time again. But it was against all odds because the writing afforded to these two nemesis was always slanted in Sonny’s favor. Sonny is the Victor Newman of GH–he always has to win.
    Any man who flies into Sunny’s orbit (word play intended) is doomed to either fail or become his faithful sidekick.
    Jax is in the AJ club and should be wearing a T shirt which reads,”I Fought Sonny and all I Got was this Stupid T Shirt.”

    Soaphound replied

    Agreed, Timm, not a big fan either. Jax always seems to be judging everyone as if he, and his precious Brenda, were SOOOO perfect. Yet another cue ball, Marines-ready haircut besides. Why do they keep chopping off all the male actors’ hair on this show? Nikolas just looks pudgy with his “too short for his face ” hair, and I read another post with the same complaint about Griffin. And of course it should be a crime to keep cutting Billy Miller’s hair so often. Maybe it’s just me..I like old Hollywood glamor on the women AND the men.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Oh I agree, Soaphound! I LOVE long hair on guys. I was very disappointed when Matt Cohen cut his hair; beautiful face but I preferred him with his longer, silky locks. Ingo I believe still lives in Hawaii and does a lot of surfing so he might just like to keep it short when he’s skimming the waves. Nicolas? Also very nice-looking but I don’t think his haircut makes him look pudgy…he’s just put on weight.

    Timmm replied

    I wouldnt be surprised if ABC ordered ALL male actors to get crew cuts for budgetary reasons!

    Liam replied

    Soaphound, you sound like Carly with the Jax/Brenda comment…lol. I personally would prefer more Jax/Brenda over the usual Carly/Sonny crap.

    Kim replied

    completely disagree, love Jax , loved Carly with Jax. I am so excited for his return. We need a good guy on the scene and Jax’s is the perfect man for the job.

    rebecca1 replied

    just to clarify my response. I love Jax! I agreed with Soaphound only regarding guys and long hair!

    Timmm replied

    Kim, I like Ingo, my problem is he is always Sonny’s doormat. I wish Jax would show up and break down Sonny’s door and announce, ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! He won’t, though. Then Jax always gets raked in with his idiotic brother Jerry! Ugg!

    nancy dillingham replied

    Always liked him! Come on home, but not just for a cameo.

    @Timmm thank you and yes Ingo has had some lousy haircuts handsome devil though ! God do I sound shallow? Answer yes! Thanks for the thoughts on my sister to watch someone you live who was really brilliant in teaching speech drama can’t even operate a DVD is devasring so all I have to say to the soaps please don’t write stories for mental illness or disease just can’t take it I have another sis who is bi polar you have no idea what that is like until you luve it! A mockery of this is not needed stick to everybody screwing everybody lol

    k/kay replied

    Sorry!!!!

    k/kay replied

    @Timmm you have always been very civil to me even when we did not agree! You take care also and Patrick and Harry and all the rest best to all of you!!!

    Harry replied

    Kay, I have family members who suffer from bipolar disease too.
    Yes, I agree–if you cannot tackle this devastating disorder while paying consistent
    fidelity to reality, then please do not tackle it at all.

    YAY!

    Agree again!

    Elizabeth replied

    Ingo is a GH vet! He deserves the airtime more then a lot of these newbies do. He is connected all around. Alexis and Ned are his BFF, Joss is his daughter, he practically raised Morgan, Liz carried his surrogate for him until she lost the baby. And the love triangle back in the day of Sonny, Brenda Jax was the best triangle ever…

    Please, NO ONE should be subjected to Carly other than Sonny! I doubt Ingo is staying, but if he was he deserves a woman of substance.

    I always loved his chemistry with Becky Herbst ( Liz).

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi Elizabeth ( is your “name” for GH Liz?). Yes, they had good chemistry when she was carrying his child. They’d make a great couple!

    Jax and Carly is LW best pairing along with Todd and Carly
    all I need now is my boo Brenda Barrett to return

    Reply

  12. Jenn says:

    I am thrilled with this news! I always liked Jax. Hearing Brenda is alive … there are also rumors Liz will get a new love interest that will not be Franco and a Jax pairing would totally shock me in a good way. (Please do not be Franco). While I always loved Jax and Brenda together, I kind of like the idea of a romance with Liz as Jax has always treated his women with respect – something Liz needs but I digress. I’d also like to see Brenda and Liz be friends so … there goes that thought.

    Finally, a man on screen that won’t bow down to Sonny! Jax has always held his ground with Sonny. I am over the Sonny Carly Jason and Sam show.

    Whatever they have in store for the character of Jax, I am looking forward to it! It makes sense for him to return being that he is Joss’s daddy!

    Patrick…I know you have a crush on Liz for reasons I will never fathom. But recently after the Jason/Jake lie, and currently the snitch-bit*h, holier-than-thou attitude re:Hayden to add to her other bad behaviours over the years…NO to Jax. If anything I’d rather he sweep in and be there for his one time ex, Alexis. And no Brenda either.

    Harry replied

    Rose, Lizzy is ethereally beautiful and I love her feisty spirit. I get why Patrick has a crush on her.
    Hayden deserves the wrath of Miss Lizzy and then some. I have no use for Hayden.

    Ingo Rademacher…. is thee…. Man !

    GH has never been the same… since he left…

    WHICH… was May, 2011.

    AND… I know…. this for fact

    Laura Wright’ Carly… has never been the same… since he left

    SHE – won – best lead actress in June, 2011.. of that year

    I’m certain she has… only Ingo Rademacher to thank for that

    I am so sick of Sonny and Carly… already…
    hasn’t taken long to realize the flight plan…. Frank Valentini, Maurice Benard, and Laura Wright have ; TAKEN… from the fans

    any way : my point is

    I wonder if GH writers will write for Carly… as a woman; as a real woman; with feelings

    she’s been so …. best word used by most… ANNOYING !

    lets see proof that some one… an actual character… who actually sought her out.. and she responded like a woman with feelings

    she’s never been the same since

    is the return of the lovely… Robin Christopher… Skye Quartermaine

    YES

    Skye and Jax….

    just what the audience needs to complete distraction – because they are too HOT

    see ya later Sonny and Carly; Jason and Sam…. you just don’t register

    Robin Christopher. AGREE. Love her.
    CarSon & JaySam DISAGREE Love them together.

    Jenn replied

    I miss Skye as well (has to be Robin no substitute will do) … and Emily when she isn’t being a busy body – loved her just before they killed her off.

    Sonny/Carly, Jason/Sam is what turns off my T.V.

    GH has too many new characters, all plot points, oh heck I could type for hours LOL

    Omar replied

    You said it best Patrick!!

    Please bring Robin Christopher’s Skye back..Such a layered and great character played by the amazing Robin, in GH, AMC AND OLTL.

    Ingo is a great and underrated actor..So happy Jax is back!! And I agree with you also, that Laura Wright’s Carly was at her best with Jax..Sonny/Carly are a good fit in paper but they have become too 1 dimensional since they have been back together..Not like in the old days.

    This is the best piece of casting news GH has made in a long time. If the show were smart, they would sign Ingo to contract and also bring back Brenda. She and Jax are two characters that were once very important to the show and should definitely still be part of the cast.

    “The actor will return July 29th for a major story.”

    Translation: Ingo Rademacher will sit on the sidelines with Genie Francis and the rest of the cast as Sonny, Carly, Jason, and Sam suck up all the screen time with their latest major storyline.

    I am thrilled to have him back. I just wish GH would get back to basics. Write stories for the characters that we love & get rid of the over bloated cast that we don’t. So tired of the stories where most of the beats are shown off screen. I could care less about half of the characters. I only watch for JASAM now. If they wrote for the vets I would tune in daily. I don’t care about Nathan, Dr. O, Finn, Nina, Kiki, Nurse Amy, Oliva and the list goes on. I won’t stories for the Quartermines all of them. I want stories for the characters I grew up on & that are still on this show.

    I only watch for Sonny and Carly. Not looking forward to Jax’s return. Another useless character to add to an already over inflated cast. I don’t care what he does as long as SONNY ANDROID CARLY STAY TOGETHER. It’s a deal breaker for me.

  26. Dan S says:

    Awesome. I can think of about ten characters I wouldn’t mind leaving Port Charles to have more familiar faces back on GH. Give him a contract. Give BA a contract. The show could use Lynn Herring full time too. And now that Laura’s back how about some scenes with Denise Alexander. They could just sit there and talk and I would enjoy it more than the constant glorification of Sonny!

    Always love to see Jacks, just please don’t let Brenda come with him. I know that he walked out on her, but whenever he, Carly and Sonny are in Port Charles, she “pops” in to cause trouble.

    Just because Sonny slept in Morgan’s toddler trundle bed and borrowed his clothes all those years ago doesn’t make Sonny a little guy.
    PS. Don’t you remember when Laura Wright’s Carly was married to Jax? They did look good together and Carly actually started to grow up…..finally.
    I still remember their yellow decor and the bowl of lemons they had on their coffee table.

    I always hated Jax. Still do. I’ll only be watching if Sonny and Carly stay together. Sonny and Carly belong together. She even admitted there was no point in either of them being involved with anyone else, (specifically citing Jaxass) and that Sonny and Carly would always get back together no matter what. Please, please let marriage #5 be their happily ever after. You can put them through all the drama you want, as long as, at the end of the day, Sonny and Carly stay together and happy. If you break CarSon up, all you’re doing is paving the way to another reconciliation, and (next time) marriage #6. Sonny and Carly have gone through so much together for the better part of 20 years, and they deserve a happy ending.

    The best reason for Carly snd Sonny to stay together is so no one else would have to be subjected to either one of them.

    I like Jax, he’s a strong guy with character. I think some see him like a Ryan Lavery type, the role Cameron Mathison played on AMC. Ryan’s character always seemed to lack depth, never got below the surface much. Not so with Jax and his past storylines. Look forward to his return!
