91 October 20th, 2013 THE GLOBE Rumor Report: GH’s Tony Geary Asked To Take 50% Pay Cut?

Courtesy/ABC

Consider the source here, but this item that has been making its way around the Internet all weekend.  According to a report in The Globe in their October 29th print edition, the tabloid is reporting that General Hospital is insisting that seven-time Daytime Emmy winner Tony Geary (Luke Spencer) take a 50% pay cut.  To which, Geary is saying if that is the case, he would leave the ABC soap opera.

In a piece on this … they go on to say, “From the network’s stand point, actors that work year round and enjoy non-stop front burner storylines don’t make that kind of money while sacrificing other areas of their lives for the sake of the show. Tony is insisting that if he leaves he also wants his character killed off to remind the audience that even beloved characters do die in daytime. Needless to say the network would rather leave the door open for the possibility of Tony’s return down the road.”

Is this just a morphed pieced by The Globe on the interview given by Geary to TV Guide Magazine, where he discusses if he was ever killed off the show and it is  taken out of context?  Do you think  Geary was asked to take a pay cut?  Thoughts? Comment below!

    I think the Globe is equivalent to the National Enquirer and most stuff in it is all fabricated…but in this day and age of expense and supposed dying soaps, nothing would surprise me. I think the writers aren’t using TG to their full advantage. He’s had crappy story lines for a long long time.

    Why don’t they ax that s___ that is after Molly’s boyfriend. Or kill off Britt’s mother finally !
    So many unnecessary actors that just muck up the storyline. Tony is a main character look at the ratings improve with Anna, Robert etc…Just another reason to push away viewers from ABC mark my words!!

    If true (IF) the man is a fool. Anyone who leaves his show for six months of every year, with no discernible impact on the ratings, should realize that the viewers are used to watching the show without seeing his sorry mug.

    I would just as soon kill Luke off. Have him die in Laura’s arms from some freak complication of the Polonium 210 antidote…. while Tracy gets there just seconds too late (although in time to hear Luke profess his undying love for Laura). Then, have Stefan come back to “comfort” Laura and they can fall in love.

    Well I kinda dont blame ABC Tony/Luke doesn’t drive story anymore aside from the usual Emmy bate but that still isn’t year round and they do need to save money wherever they can, I know it sucks but in this day and age soaps cant afford to pay big budgets to big stars didn’t even Susan Lucci take a pay cut? As for Tony dictating story where does he get the right? Luke Spencer IS an iconic name but heck so is Laura Spencer but Genie didn’t get treated half as well as he has over the years why should he be able to choose his storyline when so many other big names on soaps have not?

    I have no doubt he was aked to take a pay cut… but 50% is excessive for anyone to take in one year! I hope they work this out. I don’t want to see Tony leave. If having him take a pay cut for his shorter schedule is in line with others it would only seem fair. If it allows others to come back for longer stints… that would be ok. GH will lose a sure bet Emmy winner if he leaves. Also a great character and talented actor. They must have been going through negotiations with the near miss with death. I am guessing it’s settled because he is happily going back to PC looking good!

    He is a part-time employee so why should he be given special privileges? Because of his status and perks and if he is making more than other actors that are there on a full-time basis, why shouldn’t his salary be cut? Steve Burton wasn’t given the same privileges when he asked to work less hours because of his commute – Y&R gave him what he needed and he is no longer at GH. I’ve never like the character of Luke, so good riddance if he chooses to leave. Recast the role if they so wish.

    He wouldnt have to take such a pay cut if they drop about 6 to 8 characters i feel the show could do without: Olivia, Dante, Lulu(after baby story is over), Molly, Rafe, Taylor, T.J., and Shawn…i have nothing against the actors…i just feel these eight do nothing for the show…currently Dante and Lulu have an interesting front burner storyline but once the baby drama is over they could easily be written out…Dante and Lulu are the only two id be ok if they stayed but i feel there are too many characters on this show right now…also Sabrina and Carlos could also be eventually dropped as well as Micheal, Kiki and Morgan…a couple of newbies like Carlys brother or Scotts daughter would be ok to join the show…they really need to scale back on the cast and balance it out more, just saying!!!

    Well I don’t think the solution of putting 8 or 9 actors out of work so they could keep one is reasonable. It is so easy for us fans to say this character should go but that character is being played by real person who has bills to pay and families to raise just like the rest of us– so let’s have some compassion– it is hard for any actor to find a good paying gig, so lets not offer them, the less popular characters as sacrifices on the altar of AG— he has gotten well paid for his work over the years, he could retire tomorrow and he be fine, while a lesser character might not get another job on television again. So I say if AG doesn’t want to work for less, let him go– I bet in his case 50% of what he makes now, is still a hellva lot more than some actors make in their whole career. The dude should be grateful not greedy.

    i wasnt totally saying drop these characters just to keep Geary, i feel the show could do better without most that i mentioned wheter Geary stays or not…and as for Geary the show…imo…might be better off without him…his storyline feels isolated from the rest of the cast and involves very few if any other characters except for Tracy…and when hes gone for months the show doesnt seem to suffer for it since he’s really not invovled in any other stories except his own…Tracy is almost in complete limbo when Luke isnt there…TG cant take the cut…if the rumor is true…then he can leave if he wants…if he stays id like to see more story involement with his daughter Lulu…the show survived without him when he left years ago and im sure it will survive if he leaves again…as for the other characters i mention…if the show needs to make budget cuts id start with them…

    Elizabeth replied

    Tuthfully both need to happen for the show to make any progress – TG needs to take the cut or leave, and GH needs to make additional staff cuts. As someone who has lost my job recently I know it is hard to say people need to lost their jobs. However, if GH can’t make the economics work the show itself will be cancelled and all the more people will lose their jobs and all the viewers will lose their iconic show.

    dmr replied

    I agree; there are so many unused, unnecessary characters on the show with no real ties to Port Charles, that are maybe on once a week on a Tuesday or Wednesday as “fillers,”-the entire tween/teen scene, Carlos, Kiki, nuMorgan. Send the non-veterans off, keep a smaller cast of favorable characters and veterans, and stop the dumb storyline with MIchael, Kiki, and nuMorgan which has no chemistry, drama, or spark. It’s beyond boring.

    I wouldn’t want any of the characters to leave for Geary’s sake. For me…I like watching a lot of people…for example…if there’s a party such as a wedding…if there’s a funeral…if there’s a court hearing…when there’s barely familiar faces in the room it just seems like a ghost town of what it once was.

    Soaps are supposed to be family, friends, neighbors, connection…people in our lives, crossing our lives…bonds formed, etc. I have no desire to watch a show just about a few core group of people. I like how somehow their all intertwined in some way…it would seem sad to see so many drop off…

    I understand he must be one of the highest paid actor on daytime if not the highest and he does deserve it. But, he is not there all year round, so his paycheck must reflect that, he probably gets paid for the time he is on our tv, which in itself is already a way to save for GH. If Tony Geary has to take a 50% cut, well so would Maurice Benard… GH couldn’t bear to loose him especially if they kill him.

    I kind of have to agree with you. If Tony Geary makes as much as I think he does than I get why he is being asked to take a cut. This feels a lot like the Ron Moss situation. Sadly I think some of the vets don’t quite understand that it’s not the ‘80s anymore. A lot of soap actors are looking for work and willing to work for much less than him. For the same money or even less, we may be able to get the Deception story line with Lucy, Laura, Kevin, and Scotty instead.

  20. Tracey says:

    Even though I sincerely hope it is a rumor, but where ABC is concerned, anything is possible. Tony Geary returned to GH in 1993 and if GH is asking him to take that much of a pay cut after all these years then it would be understandable that Tony would want to leave. I really hope it is not true and definitely hope the character would not be killed off.

  23. Robbyrob says:

    First of all, consider the source. Remember also, this is ABC…cost cutting is going around in all depts…someone’s gotta pay for that failed Katie Couric talk show revolution! To ABC’s….er…um…credit, budget cuts are hitting everywhere. Look how Days tapes almost a year ahead. I don’t know Geary’s contract but I highly doubt he’s paid when he’s off the show for his vacations. Frank Valentini had consistently kept OLTL under budget during his reign as EP over there. Granted, that didn’t stop ABC from cancelling the show but I think nothing could have saved it at that point. My point is that Frank especially knows budgets. He’s got a lot of high profile vets (that he does use effectively…notice some take weeks off to make room for other vets) that do want to work on GH and are enjoying working for him. He seems to be able to balance salaries, sets, special effects, and crew quite well. Jason Tam, who played Marko on OLTL even is quoted praising Frank for his budget know-how in the new issue of Soap Opera Digest. That same issue also says Lynn Herring posted on her Facebook that ABC nixed the new sets that were supposedly going to be built for Lucy and Laura’s spa. No new sets seems to be ABC’s mantra. I would have hoped that ABC would have thrown more money (for them at least) at GH for how much the show has improved AND for basically being the anchor to their daytime lineup….AFTER they famously screwed it up!

    I love Tony Geary and feel he is worth every penny but nobody is worth mega money anymore. Carolyn Hinsey from Soap Opera Digest says that the era of 80s money is dead. Some actors don’t seem to think that though. Steve Burton wanted ABC to foot his travel bill from Los Angeles to Nashville for him to re-sign as Jason…I’m so happy they told him no. No one is above doing that for themselves…and trust me, he has the money…why should that be on ABC’s dime…they are paying him a salary and he does all those personal appearances which pay the actors too. He lucked out that Jill Farren Phelps arranged for Sony to pay for his flights at YR. Since he’s now the star of that show…how wonderful for him.

    Hopefully, ABC, Geary, and GH can work it out….if this is something to be worked out. Cooler heads should prevail…fingers crossed!

    You dont seem to unerstand the concept of a contract, Robbyrob. Tony gets paid whether he is,working or not. Recurring is when u get paid only when u work, and dobt.bbget paid when u r not working. Tony is not on recurring so he costs GH bigtime money even when he is home in Amsterdam for weeks at a time.

    Elizabeth replied

    Not to mention that a contract covers a finite period. After which it is negotiated again. Every contract Tony has negotiated has given him more and more. Now the pendulum is swinging the other way. And since old Luke isn’t even on the show for six months out of the year, its a bit hard to believe that he is indispensable for the other six months.

    I do think he is gone a lot, but I’m not sure how much he gets paid in relation to the others on the cast. I’m of the school of thought that one should get paid for the work he does, not for who he is or what he is theoretically capable of, but for what he actually does. We don’t live in economic times when resources can be just thrown away on someone who doesn’t contribute as much as his peers.

    All actors would be wise to do whatever possible to keep their daytime jobs. There are fewer jobs every year. It is true the heyday of soaps ended quite a few years ago. La lucci took close to a 50 per cent cut as did Y&R actors and probably every one else in daytime. SoPs are far less profitable and millions of viewers quit the soaps. I was never a Tony Geary fan.

    If this is true then Geary better buy a clue with all the money he’s made over these past decades.
    He disses the pairing that made him such a big soap star and seems to forget that without the pairing of his character with Laura he was going to be only a short term day player. Now he seems to think he’s above it all. And his attitude to fans is just abysmal.
    It wouldn’t bother me – or quite a few others from what I’ve read – if he did turn that six month annual vacation (who else gets that??) into a permanent exit. He’s been phoning his performances for years, yet, inexplicably, his ego and sense of self-worth have exploded out of all porportion to his talent – or lack thereof.

    And it would be nice if he’d remember that there are a whole lot of people, cast and crew, dependent on GH staying on the air. What a blowhard.

    But I will say this-considering he gets 2 lengthy vacations per year he should take some pay cut. Maybe not 50 percent but how about 25?

    And if Susan Lucci was willing to take a pay cut when she was on All My Children, he should as well.

    And if GH needs to cut loose excess baggage here’s my list: Rafe, Molly, TJ, Taylor, Kiki, Morgan, Olivia, Silas and of course topping the list: SABRINA!!!!!!!!!!!

Don’t get me wrong I love the character of Luke and if the story is true I will miss him but Luke is hardly on GH as it is. Just think of the story lines for Laura, Lulu and Lucky that could result from the demise of Luke. Not to mention Tracy. Several years Sony tried the same thing with Y&R’s Eric Braden. He quit Y&R for a short time and came back. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

    A Devil finds it incredible that a bunch of fools who never watched a single episode of General Hospital before Dumb & Dumber took over the show in February 2012 think they know what made the show in the first place.

    It’s like this kids…. There have been three eras of General Hospital:

    1) The Steve Hardy Era.
    2) The Luke Spencer Era.
    4) The Sonny Corinthos Era.

    Now that isn’t to say there have not been other important characters, but those three are your defining anchors. We all know why Steve Hardy isn’t around. But the bottom line is…. No Luke, No Sonny, no GH.

    Todd Manning… or Frodd Quartermanning and his brainless, void of any talent “daughter” will never be the reason this show survives. Nor will the hack writer who put them where they don’t belong in the first place.

    Why are GH ratings higher right now? Think about it. It ain’t Frodd or the Twit. It’s not even the recently undead Jeromes. It’s Robert Fucking Scorpio.

    You’re right Satan. Robert F’ing Scorpio IS the reason. And it they brought back Laura to a halfway decent story instead of making her into a frumpy pod version of herself she would be bringing ratings too.

    I love Luke because I started watching just before his 1st air date but it ‘appears’ he thinks he is The Show. The reason I liked him was “Luke & Laura” and They are what made Him. He basically said not long ago They are Dead. Well, then fine….if you do not want to Hold the History together that Made You…then do not be a part of the Future. Goodbye Luke!

    Stick a fork in him he”s done. He tanks L&L. You can see the disgust in his face when she is onscreen with him. He is a drunk, and says he is now. Luke that is. TG thinks he is wonderful. Believe me he is the only one. He ran over his grandson, and then went to a brothel and ignored his daughter. His family has tried to help him. TG does not want to be with Laura. He wants to drag down Tracy with him. Anyone in a story with him, get a vacation wanted or not when he leaves for months at a time. I did like Luke but he has run his course, Globe story true or not Goodbye, take Scummy with you. They are both past their past due date. What’s left.? They break the law, get away with it. Luke doesn’t work all he does is leech off the leeches. The ratings are up because Robert, Anna ,Robin. Faison and Dr O are bad but funn7y. They will also get old. But I doubt they will run for mayor after all the evil. I FF through Luke now. If its true, tiic can take some of the money and pay Tristan Rogers to stay. !!!

    Go away, Anthony Geary. Even your diehard fans (such as moi) no longer care for you on our screens.

    LUKE is kind of gross these days…he is all played out…his character has no morals or scruples, does not add anything to GH……if he left, I would not miss him……his scenes are a waste of time
