GH Recasts Lucas Jones


Recommended Posts

I'll say this much: just on appearance/looks alone, Matt Trudeau is much more appealing to me than Ryan Carnes ever was.  Now, can he act?  That's the question.

But that's the thing..Ryan has been saying for years that he was not interested in a contract from what I hear here so he's been busy on the indie circuit.


But also from here sounds like more going on than that.

 

Or...Frank is just being shady.

With Non Contract Roles though, soaps can do that if they want. Replace them if they dont have the time to film

Very true.

 

But no annoucement. No voiceover.  Nothing.

 

Something in that buttermilke ain't clean...

 

But...I guess we will see.

Yeah, it all feels like it’ll end up being a drive-by stint they just needed a warm body for. The problem, people actually give a sh!t about Lucas, and I don’t think they get that.

THIS.

 

And no annoucement or the nature of it is only making it worse. 

 

Recast or not, viewers got to see Lucas grow up and he is legacy. That would be like randomly recasting any major character with no reason at all.

Ryan did Well But serious some are acting like He was always Lucas. Lucas has been recast numerous times. Just hope he has story

Being Honest Outside of THe Baby Switch, Ryan Carnes did very little as Lucas. He was either absent from stuff Like The Nelle/Michael Custody suit or in a Coma Due to Ryan being busy. In Fact During his first stint in 2004-05, He was only on screen from July-Sept 04 and  in August 05

 

The Lucas that got the most story before this was Ben Hoygsten with Lucas' coming out and dating that guy, named Guy and Tony Dying

 

Im open to the recast. I just hope they actually utilize Lucas now

Because like I said, recast or not, Lucas is legacy. Even when he is not being written well (like the mentioned baby switch and its aftermath), yeah, people are going to be bugged because of this fact. 

 

Because of that, the way they went about recast...no announcement, reason, etc...is probably why people are feeling a kinda way. Heck, he did not even get an 'on air' announcement...and we know how jarring THAT can be for soap fans...especially the ones NOT online.

Soap twitter is still dragging GH. It looks like Brad will be back.  

  

 

  

 

I read the SOD Novemeber Sweeps information for GH and I suspected given what it said about Britt that Brad was on his way back. I also think that...along with a recast and WdR leaving...mean that Julian's days are sooo numbered cuz his role in the baby switch is coming out.

 

Hmmm...I find them both attractive. lol.

They won't, and you should stop excusing every tacky thing GH does like recasting a popular actor with zero notice just because casting notices get you excited.

Bummer.  I like Ryan Carnes a lot.  But I also really, really like CJ Thomason.  Ben Hogestyn was my least favorite.

 

Anyway, Lucas is a huge missed opportunity.  So disappointing.  Considering he's connected to pets Carly and Sam, I'm surprised they don't use him more for those reasons alone.  I'd love to see him featured the way Lulu, Maxie, and now Brooke Lynn are.

I think Thomason and Hogestyn were both good, they just got virtually no chance to do anything on the show. CJ Thomason was excellent on the CBS slasher miniseries Harper's Island a few years later. That said, Carnes made the role his in the last decade by returning as a much more seasoned actor, and the way the show has consistently treated Lucas is shameful. I don't have any interest in Frank's latest [!@#$%^&*]-you move.

 

The show is in Last-5-Years-of-ATWT mode; it's a zombie soap with little life to it. It's either a constant wretched mess or dreadfully boring, and all he cares about is keeping it on life support and keeping it under his control. I'm sorry, I'm still not interested in those two anonymous white chicks I can't tell apart or Valentin or Wes Ramsey or the boring girl playing Joss who he's tried SO hard to make into Starr Manning, or any number of a dozen other things. I'm not interested in them doing nothing for characters of color or LGBT characters while expecting people to still watch all of Frank's favorites and the now suddenly very old Steve Burton and Kelly Monaco in 2020.

 

The show still has such potential and it's just consistently bad. That will never change unless Frank is unseated or it's put on streaming, and neither of those things are going to happen any time soon. I love GH but I don't pretend it's watchable when it's just plain bad and has been for many years just so I can say it's still on TV. I don't need it to exist.

I don't know if they will give nuLucas anything but hopefully ...

 

Brad is returning!  Maybe he's just in scenes with Britt but hopefully he'll have scenes with Lucas.

I applaud any actor who chooses to escape daytime.

    • Entering April and...   ...GOOOD this show reeks of propping. I cannot with the loops the writers are writing in to keep Peter around, Why is Dr. O who has went toe to toe in hand combat with Anna...IN A MASK TO BOOT or Carly who has pulled every trick in the book or even Maxie who has fake a pregancy and used to be the crafty schemer herself so scared of this nothing burger of weaksauce son of a GH villain I like? Uh...NO!!!   Yeah, that scene of Cameron picking on Jake was a bad one. WL has done better. That said, I do like there is family conflict in Liz's family. Those boys have gotten along for too long.   So is the next event we are building up to is the opening of Curtis's club? There is enough story building going on at least to have things happen.   I am just sadden that a month ago, there was momentum going on and climaxes and it fell flat in two weeks.     
    • I am shocked at you.  LVP is cohosting that new dog show with Rebel Wilson, has VPD still in the works, and at least has one more project in the works I believe if memory serves. And VPR is still in the air...especially now that Kandi is about to start filming that OLG spinoff show. It's why I had to post that tweet. No matter how things go, LVP STAYS hustling. Kyle could NEVER.    And Andy Cokehead's ratings are not much better at times so Twitter can stay pressed. Please register in order to view this content 
    • I suppose the premise of “LGBTQ” as this hodgepodge community is what I’m questioning. That one letter of the acronym is interchangeable with the other. I understand it from a political coalition standpoint—strength in numbers—and there’s certainly been overlap in term of cultural spaces, but for the most part, the only thing these letters have in common is that they transgress commonly accepted ideas of gender roles and identities. EDIT: I know they aren’t discrete, mutually exclusive groups. Trans people can be gay, lesbian, bi, etc. as well.   But in general I agree. Soaps are broadcast TV vehicles and have to be as broadly appealing and narratively nimble as possible. It’s why streaming services (or smaller cable networks) that can nurture niche-oriented content are so groundbreaking. A gay-male soap on Netflix or Hulu wouldn’t have to cater to a mass audience and could take more risks.
    • Well on the other hand, if the logic is the community is very broad and diverse so you can't represent it in its diversity, the notion that all that is needed is that there would be *some* representation takes precedence hence the logic here. We also have, frustrated as we may be, to understand the tough spot they are in. If they have budget for thirty contract players and the number of pairings LGBTQ character can have is necessarily limited, LGBT character have a lower return-on-investment in terms of story for a producer. So expecting every strand of LGBT being represented is setting the bar unrealistically high.
    • I totally agree. The season is forced and overproduced. TBH I feel like RPDR has been trending this way for several seasons, although COVID may have exacerbated this particular season’s issues. Usually the charisma (and uniqueness, etc.) of the queens would save the show, but it’s just not there this year. Even folks I enjoy like Symone would be middling queens in any other season.
