Well it’s finally over. Of course I’m talking about the mess that CBS made of Michael Muhney’s career and the character that he played on The Young and the Restless. Last week #TeamMuhney, the actor’s most devoted legion of fans watched as his character was sent packing, putting an end to six weeks of drama, scandalous allegations and a rumored boycott of Y&R by life long fans. The turmoil is over, so now what?
In the last week or so rumors have picked up momentum that Muhney could be coming to General Hospital. It actually seems like it could be a great fit because we already know that Muhney is great at dark story lines and Port Charles’ mob underworld certainly would give him lots to play with. At first his fans wanted him to be rehired by Y&R but once more details came out even they were against him returning to the show. A lot of those same fans are now really getting behind the idea of him jumping to GH and slowly but surely there is a growing clamor for ABC to pay attention and hire the talented actor.
That support makes a lot of sense. I mean, Muhney isn’t heading back to CBS and so he inevitably needs to look elsewhere for work and if he were to hop over to GH then he would likely bring his huge fan base with him. Plus they’d get to see him onscreen several days a week again. It could be a win win situation but first ABC has to get over their initial fear of backlash. They need to know that if they treat Muhney like he is innocent of the rumors, or at least innocent in the absence of evidence other than Hunter King’s accusations, which Muhney denies, and give him a shot then the viewers will welcome him to Port Charles as well. Would you guys want to see ABC bring him onto GH’s canvas? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
