General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that GH may be ready to recast Morgan Corinthos (last played by Bryan Craig). A new blind item points to the potential return of Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) son, so let’s talk about this exciting possibility.
Of course, we should start off by noting that this blind item could be about any of the four main soaps.
That goes for General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful or The Young and the Restless.
It’s important to keep that in mind and know that any daytime drama could be affected.
According to SOD, one soap is actively hunting for a recast of a major character who’s been off canvas.
Let’s consider for a moment that this blind item could indeed be referring to GH. If that’s true, who could the recast character be?
The use of the word “major” is perhaps important.
Although it would be great to see recasts for Elizabeth Baldwin’s (Rebecca Herbst) father Jeff Webber or perhaps Brook Lynn Quartermaine’s (Amanda Setton) mom Lois Cerullo, it’d be a stretch to call them major characters after all these years away.
A Lulu Spencer recast would qualify as major, but why not bring back Emme Rylan or even Julie Marie Berman instead of taking a risk on someone new?
Lucky Spencer (last played by Jonathan Jackson) is another option to consider, but they really should’ve recast and brought him back already.
It would’ve made more sense to have Lucky around for Luke Spencer’s (Anthony Geary) memorial and the umbrella story that’s about to kick off.
The show is just now hunting for a major recast, so the timing doesn’t really fit for Lucky.
As for Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), it’s tough to imagine they’d already be bringing in another actor – not when they could wait to see how things might play out with Steve Burton somewhere down the line.
That brings us to Morgan Corinthos and the possibility that he’ll pop up again with a new face. For a while, it seemed like the show indeed wanted to bring Morgan back.
There were some hints dropping in dialogue, but those eventually faded out and were ignored. Maybe the plan to recast Morgan was simply delayed rather than scrapped.
After all, it was probably better to wait since we already had Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy), Drew Cain (Cameron Mathison) and Sonny in back-from-the-dead storylines.
Now that some time has passed, the ABC soap might be revisiting the idea of bringing Morgan back on the canvas.
It’d be an excellent way to bring Carly and Sonny together again if their son came home.
Sonny and Carly’s marriage issues may get worse before they get better, so they’re going to need something to unite them and help repair the damage.
There’d be plenty of exciting story possibilities for Morgan Corinthos in Port Charles, so maybe a recast is finally in the works.
Will Morgan return from the dead? We’ll deliver updates as other news becomes available.
