Tom Pelphrey to General Hospital?


Is Tom Pelphrey on his way to General Hospital? This week’s issue of Soap Opera Weekly is reporting that the show is very interested in snapping up the talented young actor.

Sources from the magazine reveal that Pelphrey would play Sonny and Olivia’s son, the result of a long ago fling. Nothing has been confirmed right now, but I would keep my eyes on this story.

    I would love for him to come on but it has to be as an Quatermaine. They need more people. Maybe Jimmy had a kid and now he’s come claim his right as a Quatermaine. It would give Tracy some wonderful things to do.

    Also Liz needs a love interest.

    I really doubt that they would make him Sonny’s kid. Guza has already said the reason they havent’ SORAS’ed Morgan, Kristina,Molly,Michael is because they don’t want to age Sonny, Alexis, Carly and if he showed up as Sonny’s child, that would certainly age him.

    Oh, for the love of Amy Vining would he have to play Sonny’s son? He is becoming the most hated character of daytime. Sonny Corinthos can go freeze with Stavros Cassadine for all I give a damn.

    Yeah that is a sickening thought if Pelphrey’s possible character had anything to do with Sonny. I think Maurice Bernard is one of the most overrated actors in daytime, and all the actors he has worked with fawn over him like he is an acting god. “I wouldn’t be the actor I am today if not for Mo, blah blah blah.” If GH/ABC was able to lure Pelphrey, I bet the CBS brass would be steaming mad! It really would be a coup for them, getting one of the best young actors daytime has had in years, because love him or hate him, Jonathan was one of a kind.

    why does sonny need another kid? and didn’t they say months ago that kate and sonny didn’t have sex when they were teenages, that there first time was recently? maybe they’re going for the most rapid SORAS ever…from embreyo to thirty in five seconds flat! god this show has gotten so stupid. i’m sticking with it for spixie and scrubs – hopefully they won’t mess those up. but i’m not holding my breath.

    Nooooooooooooooooooo!!! Stay away Tom!! Please!!! You are too good for Guza’s GH. Frons will destroy you. Be a little more patient. You’ll find something. I know you will.

    It’s rather amazing how a less than average talent like Zach Roerig can get into primetime quality show like Friday Night Lights and an extremely talented actor like TP is stuck with shows like GH. It’s not fair. :(

    I knew it. Might be intresting, he could be the right age for Sonny’s son, if Sonny was a teenager when it happened. He would replace Michael in a way and give Carly anopther woman to hate, eye roll there. All you Sonny haters out there, let’s see what happens. It’s a rumor right now. And nathan77, I don’t think MB is an over rated actor, there are plenty of actors on GH who are over rated. Like the guy who plays Johnny, Steve Burton, the guy who played Logan, Carly, to many to count. We all have our tastes and that’s okay, but it’s not the end of the world now where you have to double post ;)

    BigDede: The writers don’t want to age Sonny? Hasn’t his face already done that?

    THEBEST: While, I don’t want Tom to play Sonny’s son I would be interested if he and Vanessa Marcil got together, if she ever returns.The two of them together would be more explosive than the exploding clinic! And what better humiliation, for everything Sonny has done, than for your son and the love of your life to fall in love!

    nathan77: Maurice in the beginning was definitely one of the finest actors on daytime but for the past few years he has definitely been phoning it in. Did you see the confrontation between him and Kate?! The man looked like he was about ready to fall asleep. I know I was!

    elvara: Amen!

    aunti2egl: Tom is 26 and Maurice is 45. And if the character of Sonny had him as a teenager than he would fit perfectly in that age range.

    I am sorry. I am going to say that I watched a bit of Jonathon on GL and I think he is a bit over rated. He was way over the top. Cheesefest really. I know there are those that love him but I didn’t. It would be interesting to see if he could tone it down. Has he ever done anything else I could watch?

    Gee, I wonder if his character will be in the mob? *rolling eyes* Run, Tom, run away quickly!

    And I never got to see Nikolas and Emily have a Cassadine/Quartermaine baby, but Sonny can have yet another frackin’ kid. This show just kills me.

    Damn season1217, that’s harsh. At least he’s not getting face lifts like the rest of daytime actors, both male and female. I know your not a fan, but that was just plain cold.

    LOL! Sorry ladyofthelake and your right, he hasn’t had the dreaded plastic surgery that many of the other daytime stars have had and credit goes to him for that. I was just joking, he doesn’t look that bad but, hey, aging happens. I loved Sonny in the mid-90’s but lately the character has been stuck in the mud in terms of character development. I believe w/ new writing and a fresh perspective the Sonny of old could return and give Maurice his groove back.

    season1217 I agree with you about the writing. I think half the cast acts like zombies with what they are given. I will say, that I hate that the cover his grey, who cares. They do that with all the guys on the show, especially Ric. One minute they have that sexy bit of grey going on, the next scene they don’t. Nobody’s natural anymore ;)

    Super sperm alert!!

    ladyofthelake, sorry I disagree with you about the guy that plays Johnny, Steve Burton and Laura Wright (Carly). They are all very good actors and bring it everyday! I think part of MB’s problem is his material. Since he did not win the Emmy for the bi-polar storyline (which he should have), he hasn’t been the same.

    I have never seen the appeal of the Sonny Corinthos characters; is it MB’s dimples that make him so popular? Sonny came to PC as one of Frank Smith’s hoodlums and ran a strip club. In the ensuing years he has had alot of help climbing to the top of the dung heap. As one male leads of the show, the Sonny character is sexually irresponsible and emotionally volatile as well as being chauvinistic. He is singularly unlucky in both love and war. Without Jason as his enforcer and adoring sycophant, Sonny is ineffectual and bombastic. Now we learn that he may be the recipient of an unknown son to take the place of the much-indulged Michael. Don’t we have enough mystery children on this show?

    It was the pairing of Sonny and Brenda that made him popular more than anything. And having Stone and Robin as his cheerleaders sure didn’t hurt. Although, I do hate when they gloss over what he did to Karen. They try and make it seem like he was just as lost as her and he thought he was helping her. How, the heck, is a grown man supplying a teenager w/ drugs and having her strip, helping her?! During Maurice’s early years w/ the show Sonny was different from a lot of what we saw on daytime, he wasn’t all good but he wasn’t all bad, either. He had his good points and his bad. But through the years they have taken his character and ruined him. What happened to Michael is another example of the bad writing this show has demonstrated. Fatherhood was too important to Sonny for him to ever let Michael grow into the child he had become.

    thanks aunti – that’s what i get for reading these things at midnight. :)still though – why does sonny of all people have to reproduce? why? they should just have him stuck with the kids he has now. those poor kids are going to be completely screwed up – having a target painted on your back will do that to a person. too bad lainey’s not around to cash in on all that therapy. i agree with whoever said it’s time for a vasiectomy.

    Tom, you are a brilliant and gifted actor. RUN from GH and the mob storyline! He might have been interesting as a Quartermaine/ Holt, as was suggested, or even as Noah’s other son, or maybe Mac’s long lost son. Sonny doesn’t need any more kids; he hasn’t done a great job parenting the ones he already has.

    Here you go Verde (don’t worry this wouldn’t be the fast SORAS kid in history, Guza/Frons ISNT THAT bad, well they aren but not in this case, you just have to read)….so here you go.
