Courtesy/ABC

Daytime Emmy winner, Tyler Christopher (Nikolas) who recently wrapped up the film, The New Wife is getting ready to shoot another.  Now comes word that the actor will star in the indie feature film project, Pretty Broken.  In it, Tyler will portray Jerry Carlyle, a former kids cable access TV show star, now a self-proclaimed role model for his used car sales team, who uses his southern charm and one-liners to win over the ladies.

The film is directed by Brett Eichenberger, from an award winning script penned by Jill Remensynder and is produced by Leonian Pictures and Resonance Productions.

The story follows Lindsey Lou (Jillian Clare), an unemployed, college drop-out on the verge of divorce who finds herself couch surfing at her childhood home while her family grieves the death of her father. As the family tries to put the past behind them, Lindsey fights to keep his memory alive before her mother (Paula Trickey) replaces him with a younger man (Christopher). The film which is 2/3 of the way done is going back into production on September 8th in Portland, Oregon.

AS GH fans know, Tyler has been gone from General Hospital since May of this year.  His likeness was removed from the opening credits of GH this week as well as mentions in the the closing credits.  In story, Nikolas  then played by Nick Stabile) was shot and fell to his “death” on Cassadine Island.  But fans are hoping for an upcoming return of Christopher to reprise the role he originated. 

So, what do you think of Tyler’s new film gig?  Comment below!

    When Nik does come back? I hope he and Miss Lizzie pay for their crimes.
    Why is Elizabeth the victim?

    How sweet! Sorry, you have do much venom for someone you do not know. It must be so hard for you to carry all this rage around; seeing red over a fictional character. You do realize Liz is not real, right?
    But, if I were any thinner, I’d disappear. I love Elizabeth. Everyone on these sites knows that. Plus, I also love the actress who plays Liz.
    Oh, I am a vegetarian. Well, except for salmon….I loooove salmon, and sushi. No meat!!

    You are a big bully, leave Celia alone. Your hateful comment should be blocked. Attacking someone like that is crazy, go take your meds. Celia we all love you, on this site.

    Grazie, (thank you), Claudio. I love you, too. Now, you made me shed a few tears. You are so kind, dear friend.
    I cherish people such as yourself (to name a couple: Timmm, and James) …thank you, again, for having my back. Smiles. If I could kiss you, I would. LOL.

    Claudio replied

    Celia you very welcome, I love your comments on this site. You make my day. I have your back, no one deserves to be bullied and sworn at. I love you too my friend, you take care and god bless.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Yes, I saw that too CeeCee. That was weird. I guess the moderators noticed it too late because as we now see it was removed.

    Celia replied

    @Claudio.
    TY…God bless!

    Celia…Claudio is RIGHT!!!!! My dear, you are very, very LOVED on this site!!!!! As far as I’m concerned, bullies are nothing but OVERGROWN IDIOTS!!!!! Oh…and BTW, I hope that your ear infection goes away…quickly.

    Later, my friend.

    Celia replied

    @Jaybird369.
    Thank you, my friend. Your kind words ( and everyone’s) mean a lot.

    Celia replied

    @Jaybird.
    Thank you again, my friend. LOL…my husband diagnosed me with swimmer’s ear. It hurt like nothing else for a while. Better , now.
    Well, what can I say, Jay? We must take some things in stride, especially from someone who means nothing in our lives.
    I feel sorry for this person.
    But, I admire the moderators for removing that comment. I am sure it was a slip, and not meant to be posted.
    Love you, Jay.

    Rebecca1 replied

    I have to say Claudio that the way you put it…”you’re a big bully” was gallant but very cute as well!

    Soaphound replied

    Thank you, Celia! My mom also watches and always feels sorry for the ‘eternal victim’ Miss Elizabeth.. but anytime she does something underhanded, I always say, “That’s the Elizabeth I KNOW!” The stunt she pulled with Jake Doe/Jason was the last straw for me.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    That was my point exactly, Soaphound. And, Liz got away with it. Why?
    Will the truth about her keeping Nik’s secret ever come out? This secret ‘ghost’ will end up in the cavernous catacombs with the rest of the Cassadine ‘bones’.
    I wonder if Liz will think twice about ‘socking’ it to Hayden when she discovers they’re sisters; OR will this truth make her despise Hayden even more!!??

    Oh, BTW…are ‘they’ turning Alexis into a lush?

    Reply

    Rebecca1 replied

    Lol…she DESERVES a drink (s)! Doncha think? Julian’s going to be set free…Paul will be blackmailed into destroying the evidence and then my Alexis is REAlLLY going to hit the bottle!

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Yeah, she does, Rebecca. But, it’s the first thing she noticed when she ‘walked into the party’. Oh, that Carly!! LOL. There’s a drink; and then, there’s a succession of drinks.
    I feel for her….all women in a difficult situation such as this.

    Timmm replied

    From a sext up mid life wife to a middle aged drunk! I feel for her daughters!

    Reply

    Celia replied

    HaHa….It’s a catch 22, Timmmy. Is Alexis turning to alcohol to STOP imagining seeing Julian, or is she hallucinating BECAUSE of the alcohol? What a plight!!
    Wow!!!! I did not expect for TPTB to do this to Alexis. I hope her daughters are there to pick her up when she falls.
    However, Timmmy ( and you may or may not perceive this, as a man….but, I hope you are THAT sensitive to a woman’s feelings), I do not like the direction Alexis is taking. I am so sick and tired; get so frustrated when women are depicted as these delicate flowers falling off the wagon because of a d**khead-man.
    We are so much better and stronger than that!!!!!! Alexis should pick her head up; hold it high; straighten her shoulders; raise her fist snd SHOUT: ” I AM WOMAN”!!!!!!.
    ‘Nite, my Timmmy.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Dear, dear, oh dear…CeeCee. LOL.
    First, just imagine me being pissed at the “sext up mid life” to “middle-aged drunk” comment! Yes…I know that wasn’t you who said that. But still, once again these references to age on EVERY freaking topic is beyond annoying. I could care less if Alexis or Alex, Barbara or Bob, Sally or Sal…had SEX at any age or started drinking at any age or had a breakdown at any age…because the AGE isn’t what matters. It’s the human experience…the joys…that would be sex…and the sorrows…that would be when the person you love and are having said sex with who happens to be your spouse tries to slit your throat!

    Ahem. My point is let’s not lose site of the fact this is a soap so without conflict there’d be no story, Alexis just had her marriage ripped out from under her, all her dreams dashed, had to wear a wire on her husband to entrap him, was threatened with her very life, lost her identity as a lawyer which is her very essence, had her daughter go through a sexual identity crisis and then this same daughter lash out at her and basically rips her heart out…I’d say Alexis is coping as best she can. It’s not too much of a stretch to see someone crumble incrementally from despair, loss, shock, emotional trauma….she’s lost everything with the exception of her daughters…her love, trust, marriage, profession. In true soapy fashion I think it’s fine to see her fall a apart…she’s held her strength for a really long time and now as the trial nears she’s cracking. With her credibility on the line coupled with Paul being blackmailed into destroying evidence against Julian that’ll set the stage for Julian’s release and more soapy drama. I like it. I know not everyone will agree. Even the strongest among us crumble…I have no doubt Alexis will find her way back…

    Hey, Rebecca,
    You’re right, it’s the character being discussed. We do not really want to go backwards, do we? I love Michelle/Nine to no end. Now, she has been hanged from the mightiest oak, pushed, shoved, disgraced, defamed and called a sl*t by different posters, making me reel with annoyance.
    I answer in a ‘jovial’ manner, always keeping in mind that it IS, indeed, A SOAP.
    In my Timmmy’s defense….he’s a kidder and soooo very lovable. If I knew him, personally; I’d want to be his friend….as so many others on these boards, as I have indicated to Claudio.
    There are those of us that feel that certain age dictates certain sets of rules and decorum. You may not feel that way……that’s fine, but we cannot point fingers and berate those who do not.
    I love this new Alexis. And, I commiserate her plight. She gave her heart to Julian….her all….and, in return, he tried to kill the very heart she so passionately and lovingly gave to him.
    It’s a soap….love scenes are expected. But, I made the mistake of killing the messenger. Alexis was that messenger. I just found it hard to digest how she was written. Why? I suppose I, stupidly, compared her behavior to my mother’s…..all she and Julian did was have sex….before and after. I just expected so much more substance between two people.
    I see what’s unfurling, Rebecca. I may not relate, but, I am a woman, first and foremost….with a woman’s tender feelings, heart and thoughts.
    I know Alexis’s world came tumbling down. I suppose after all the trauma in her life, she broke!!
    But, please understand that this is the crux of the matter, as far as I’m concerned; and, the point I tried to make……that is, the writers could have handled this differently. I think Alexis could have taken the bull by the horns, per se…..why have her turn to alcohol? There is still time to stop this one-two punch to Alexis gut and show she has a backbone.
    All’s well, Rebecca. Enjoy your week-end. I am stuck home with an ear infection. Imagine!! At my age!!!!

    Celia replied

    Oh, I forgot, LOL.
    RE: Franco. Something about him is gnawing at me. I don’t know why. I think you know how I feel about Roger. Love him to pieces. But, I see a change in him. My imagination? Maybe. I think his mother’s influence will be his undoing.
    As far as Elizabeth, whom I also love , needs to come clean, in order to cleanse herself and not start a relationship with a very dubious character, such as Franco.
    Yes, he’s enormously caring. When he loves, he loves all the way—-no in-between. Admirable.
    But, if these two are starting a life together, then let them start on the right foot. LOL.
    I guess, it would not be a soap if things went smoothly.

    Harry replied

    Excellent post, Bec. My favorite line is,” …”without conflict, there would be no story.”
    I could see Alexis developing a drinking problem after what she has endured. This happens.
    And it’s never too late to become an alcoholic–some are born and some are made. So if they address the issue of alcoholism reasonably and realistically, I am all for it. This is a life destroying disease which afflicts many people.

    Rebecca1 replied

    Ceecee…you and I are not going backwards…however…because you find a poster “lovable” doesn’t mean I do. Matter of fact, I don’t. For the very reason you have taken to this person is the very reason I haven’t. He has antagonized many a time when not one comment was directed at him ant took sides as you know. He’s been your cheerleader. Thus, your online friendship and loyalty. I know you well enough and witnessed your reactions to people who haven’t been a fan of yours; you’re rightly angered. I wouldn’t presume to tell you to feel differently. Please respect my very justified feelings. They won’t change.

    As for people who haven’t reached a certain age yet feel about people who have reached a certain age…I’ll simply say they don’t know what they’re talking about. We can go a few rounds but it’d be pointless. Just as people can’t step into the shoes of another race, sexual preference or gender, neither can a person under thirty step into the shoes of a middle-aged woman (or man) and say how she (or he) should feel or act. Who are any of us to judge anyone anyway??? It’s all societal rules that have no baring on how one should conduct their personal lives…so whiile we’re discussing fictional characters if the actor in reality is that age or that race or that religion and we judge how they “should” act, then we are judging our fellow posters who might be the same age, race or religion as the character.

    For example, if you don’t like how a Catholic wedding is depicted and get offended and say that would NEVER happen that way and is so wrong, well I’ll assume you know better than me because I’m not Catholic. By The same token if a woman over forty lusts after her man, I can tell you, since I’m in my mid forties..that that’s beyond accurate. Lust doesn’t wane if chemistry is there. And you’ve said more than once that that’s all Julian and Alexis had was a sexual relationship and I say no, it’s not. We’re to assume that they have a life off camera. And, to play devil’s advocate, even if it WAS all they had in retrospect, passion is a powerful force. As for “decorum” Alexis always is sophisticated and savvy in public, her sexual relationship was always behind closed doors…the same with every other character.

    I also think you have to loosen up a bit when watching soaps. Soaps wouldn’t be soaps without the messy relationships, the infidelities, the betrayals. They’re based on a constant, alternating thread of happiness and trouble. Good, evil, love, lust , hate, friends, enemies, rivalries, revenge. General Hospital in particular changed the face of soaps decades ago with Luke and Laura, his “rape” and their ensuing love…I mean, can ANY of us imagine that in real life!!!??? Same with Todd and Blair on OLTL. Todd raped a girl in college…and yet Blair was madly in love with him and married him. Unthinkable in reality, but somehow Todd became one of the most popular characters. It’s crazy…

    Anyway, there’s no need to harp on a character’s age. Again. When harping on Alexis’s age, the person doing so is also making a comment (indirectly and unintentionally perhaps) but it’s still spewing out “mid-age” as a derogatory. Being strong, which Alexis is…she fought lung cancer, infidelity, her daughter sleeping with her husband, Helena killing her mother…and now all this. I’d say she’s entitled to fall apart for a while. To do so doesn’t make someone weak, just human and overwhelmed. And I don’t necessarily think they’re turning her into an alcoholic though I could be wrong. I just think they’re showing that she’s tried to remain strong, she did what had to be done, she’s still putting her daughter’s first and has had to remain intact. But trouble’s coming from all sides. Not sure if her hallucinations are stress related or medical but it makes sense with all she’s been through. Think of all Anna went through…she too fell apart.

    Here we have again viewers who feel Laura barely reacted to her son’s death and I agree with that. That’s MUXH more unrealistic to me to have a mother as loving ads Laura shed a few tears and then pick herself up so easily. Alexis, with all the CUMULATIVE, simultaneous events would be in denial if she didn’t have a drink or two…or twenty.

    Hugs! :)

    Hi Harry…can I call you Har just without the ry? Hahah..ahem. Thanks for your response to my post. As I said to CeeCee, I’m not sure if Alexis will have a drinking problem but she seems to be spiraling. Sigh…she’s paid a mighty price when Carly, Ava, Sonny, Julian, Olivia, Sam, Liz, Jadon…need I go on? All these characters are either criminals or in love with criminals yet Alexis???? Alexis FINALLY gets a personal life again and she’s the one out of all them that takes the hit? Something’s rotten in Denmark! …..

    Patrick replied

    @Rebecca1

    this is Alexis rebirth and resurgence

    it took all this time.. for the writers to RIGHT the WRONG of the character of NLG’ Alexis

    what a deal… Nancy Lee Grahn gets acting chops

    NO MORE… supreme court justice .. her staunch unwavering of Frigidaire

    NEW lease on life… and who cares if she’s in mid life

    if she’s out of the start gate.. imbibing… she’ll research her whole mindset and baby step her untouched unfettered waters with left out emotions and feeling

    step outside the box Alexis… you’ve no one to answer to

    just saying… the cats out of the bag

    it’s an opportune time to challenge NLG
    this is J &S turn to … keep them bumping in to each other… cat and mouse bonnie and clyde his and her… eye to eye straight on

    the twist and turns are applicable here… theirs a lot of water going on between her legalese mindset and his stretch of mob

    no need to hurry them back… as it’d be shown back in the sack

    let’s see Alexis mind all her demons and argue her bible

    Celia replied

    Hi, Rebecca.
    ( I am out the door, but, it is uppermost in my head to say this)…..
    Firstly, I agree with every, wise word you have said. I will take your well-phrased; well-rounded comment as a lesson learned.
    I think you have witnessed my ‘growing up’ as it were, in these couple of years.
    And, I do respect your opinions, believe it or not. I do think that Harry is right. We are mire slike than we think.
    Yes, I am RCatholic, with a caravan of priests and nuns in the family. When my faith is misrepresented, I do get upset. I believe you said you are Jewish? Well, one of my brothers-in-law is a Sephardic Jew. Believe me, his family hits the roof (LOL) if a certain ‘rule’ or belief is broken or misrepresented.
    By the same token some members of my family or his could care less…..
    I have always liked Nancy Grahn. She’s authentic, beautiful and talented. But, there are a few aspects of Alexis that make me say, ‘hmmmm’. LOL.
    Enjoy you Monday, Rebecca. I am very glad we are where we are….FRIENDS?????

    Rebecca1 replied

    Hi CeeCee, yes I agree about our being “more alike.” And yes, as you mention I definitely notice your “growing up” or let’s say being more open to seeing beyond your experience…you’re listening to my messages, hearing them and considering them. I’m glad you do now. We’ve both gotten past that “time” which lasted way too long in our MF roller coaster “relationship” and I think we both deserve credit for our new one. Yes, friends. :)

    Timmm replied

    Happy Labor Day! And speaking of labor, you asked me if I am sensitive to women’s feelings? There is No human I respect more than a women who becomes a mother! Women are the driving force behind the success of ANY family! Dad’s are relevant but to have a strong women back a family, from birth on, a child should NEVER forget what a women did to become a mother!

    Hey, Timmmy…
    I was just corrected; LOL. Liz is an accessory to attempted murder AFTER THE FACT!!

    That’s wonderful for Tyler! Wish him well. I do miss him on GH. I do hope he’s not paired with Ava if he returns.

    Celia replied

    I agree, Sandy. Maura Wells and Nick Stabile worked….but, I can’t say the same about Tyler and Maura.
    I can see Nik and Liz. I am having some doubts about Franco and Liz, now. I feel that little evil imp raising its ugly head within Franco.

    Reply

    Rebecca1 replied

    Really CeeCee. How so? Franco’s devoted to Liz. He’s still quirky but he when it comes to people he loves…Nina, Kiki, Carly (when they were engaged), Scotty, Liz and her boys…he has a heart of gold.

    Timmm replied

    I agree, it was Maura West and NICK STABILE who had chemistry, not Tyler. Nick and Liz FINALLY! Kill Franco off please!

    Celia replied

    @Timmm.
    Well, Timmmy. I do not want Roger to go. Franco just needs to steer clear of Heather, that’s all.
    Ironically, I love Heather, as well. She slays me. Her twisted way of thinking is infectious. I am starting to see things her way…LOL. ( Nah).
    I don’t like the way Franco is insinuating himself in Liz’s life and has this unreasonable dislike for Hayden. I did say that Liz would blame Hayden for her tumble down the stairs, before we saw Hayden on the landing.
    Now, what’s puzzling to me is the fact that Liz doesn’t seem to have any qualms about what comes out of her mouth….no fear whatsoever, that Hayden KNOWS sooo much. What Liz did is a felony. She is an accessory to attempted murder ( Nik had Hayden shot). How does that work?

  6. Ricardo says:

    I have a feeling Tyler is not coming back to GH, if this is true bring back Nick Stabile.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Now, you’re talking, Ricardo. However, I want a different kind of Nik. The one I met two and a half years ago, when I started watching the show.
    That role fits Nick Stabile like a glove. In that case, as I said, Nik and Ava should connect.
    But, there’s always the chance he will hook up with Liz. We shall see what TPTB have in mind for both Nik and Liz. Nik is a criminal; and, Franco an ex-criminal who is starting to show signs of instability.
    At this point in her life, Liz deserves better.

    What i would really like to know is what the hell happened between him and the show? He had just won an Emmy that would have gotten him more story for him to carry. Something serious had to have gone down for him to break like this. Sure sucks to not see him or the character.
