General Hospital : More Contract Updates & Night Shift Scoop!


Fan Favorite Couple, Robin and Patrick!  We’ve talked about Kimberly McCullough and Jason Thompson’s contracts before and at one time it was said that both actor’s contracts were coming up soon.  Not true according to the actors at a recent fan event.  Both Jason and Kimberly are on contract with General Hospital through next fall. 

Jason Thompson has also been RUMORED to have spoke with a fan regarding other opportunities outside of General Hospital He says being on the daytime sudser has given industry peeps the chance to see him in action and a few doors have opened because of it.  Remember there was an OLD RUMOR that a GH’er had auditioned for a pilot. 
Night Shift was also a topic of conversation.  The filming schedule this time around appears to be different.  The first season was filmed on Fridays with the parent show, General Hospital, filming Monday through Thursday.  This season, Night Shift will film on Thursdays and Fridays.  Does that mean General Hospital is being filmed only three days a week?  Not 100% sure on that one as the actors also said new sets are being used for Night Shift.   Kim and Jason also told fans that they did a table read for Night Shift and were very pleased with the new material as well as their new cast mates. 

SOME SCOOP!  Will Anna pop up on the primetime spin-off? Possibly.  The Legal Stuff?  Robin and Patrick will be closer when it’s all over.  Night Shift starts shooting this week.  When Rick Springfield returns it’s as Noah.  They have scenes with him at Robin’s apartment. 

Did you know… that Kimberly recently took up motorcycle riding?  She’s still learning and getting advice from Vanessa Marcil who also rides.  Jason is partners in a production company with Bob Guiney (The Bachelor and Rebecca Budig’s hubby).  Jason’s injured shoulder?  He hurt it skate boarding.

    I can see it now – his leaving. I didn’t like him at first, but he has grown on me. I hope he doesn’t leave.

    No one wants to see Robin or Patrick leave… they keep the hospital in General Hospital.  Jason also mentioned that now being further into his contract he has more wiggle room to look into other projects.  Don’t be surprised to see him on a primetime ABC show in a guest role.

    As long as he continues to gain in popularity and clout with the show, I could see him getting the same opportunities (i.e., leaves of absence) that Ingo or Steve Burton has in the past. I could live with that. :-)

    LOVE JASON THOMPSON…Would love to see him get some primetime guest appearances in but still maintain his contract role on GH. Would be very sad to see him go.

    Can I just get a small bit of frustration out on this? And this is definitely not against you, rmcuso, or JT. I really like him. But what is it with GH that the men have “wiggle room” to pursue other projects, and the moment a woman like Tamara Braun, Finola Hughes, or Natalia Livingston express a desire to pursue other projects while still remaining on the show, they’re shown the door or become emboiled in some ridiculous one-upmanshp by the network? It’s so frustrating to me.

    Sorry! Just had to get that out! :)
