HomeTVGeneral HospitalSebastian Roche Staying Put Jillian Bowe October 13, 2008 General Hospital 19 Comments Fans of Sebastian Roche (Jerry) can breathe easier. The folks at Soaps.com are reporting that the General Hospital star is staying put as the devilish older brother of corporate raider Jasper "Jax" Jacks (Ingo Rademacher). The actor’s publicist denied rumors that Roche will be departing the show. 19 Responses season1217 October 13, 2008 So now what?! ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 13, 2008 Jason Gerhardt’s publicist said the same thing about Coop! Log in to Reply mnv517 October 13, 2008 I wish it were true that he was staying. It’s quite unfortunate how TPTB just demolished Jerry’s character and storyline. They really don’t know how to keep it together over there sometimes. Log in to Reply season1217 October 13, 2008 Oh God, Regan, don’t bring up Jason Gerhardt! My heart is breaking all over again.:( ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 13, 2008 Sorry season LOL! Mine breaks too… so much potential in a character. Log in to Reply GHfan4life2008 October 13, 2008 THANK YOU SOAP GODS SO MUCH. despite being a psychotic. jerry jax is a awesome character. you don’t know how happy i was when jerry put that super annoying nading to sleep. i wanted to give him a nice little hug. i mean not only is the man intelligent. but his accent is sexy as hell. i love him with all of my heart. even during the MC crisis s/l i knew the man had potential. IMO he has become a great asset to GH overall and a fantastic villain. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe October 13, 2008 Easy Regan, I’m just reporting what I found out. Log in to Reply LovinLiason October 13, 2008 LovinLiason Very happy about this news! Jerry is one of those bad boys you love to hate.. He’s a great actor.. Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 October 14, 2008 I like SR, but I hate what the writers doing to him and making me despises him. I don’t think he is Jerry jacks, but James Craig, Jax cousin. I also don’t like Alexis being involve with a terrorist who shot Robin and gave ALan a heart attack. I don’t want Alexis to be sacrifice to pimp out Jerry Craigs motives. I dont think the writers dont know what to do with him. siomonstuart2003 Log in to Reply Simple C October 14, 2008 Crap. I knew it was too good to be true. No way can they get rid of a mobster. *rolleyes* Log in to Reply GHfan4life2008 October 14, 2008 siomonstuart2003. actually the writers know exactly what there doing with jerry jax. you seem to forget jerry was no saint upon his GH past. he was sorta like a con man back in the day. him and jax always fought over little things because they disagree. when he came back to GH and tookover the MC. of course people may see see it differently since jerry was never a cold blooded killer. but you have to remember that jerry had a very shady past. he dealed with crime families. crookes. baddies.”etc” since the beginning of his time. like the mobsters on GH. he’s a grey character with a heart. even though he’s evil and does bad things. he does it for good reason..the MC incident wasn’t a good reason i agree. mainly because innocent people got hurt in the the process and cause the death of one major character.”alan quartermaine. although he has changed allot since then. now he only protects the people he cares about. ie”Alexis”. his other personality james craig would never do that. for god sake he lefted his ex G/F at the MC to die after it exploded. love him or hate him. the character is written true to history. if you don’t know that then i suggest doing some research when he first came to port charles. it will explain clear as day of what he does now is who he is. except jerry jax never had that killer instinct to kill someone in cold blood and not have any remorse. that was added to james craig persona and eventually it transcended to jerry’s character, Log in to Reply THEBEST October 14, 2008 I’m hoping that he’s still a goner. Sebastian is a great actor, but Jerry isn’t fitting with the canvas. Besides, my Alexis deserves so much better… ***///The Hunt 4 Dixie Martin Is On!\\\*** Log in to Reply season1217 October 14, 2008 I’m sure that on paper what the writers had in mind for Jerry seemed interesting but the execution, it seems to many, has been terrible. I think the writers imagined Jerry’s transformation after something like the character of Two-Face, a man who is two different sides of the same coin or Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. But again, I could be giving the writers more credit than they deserve.:) The real travesty, in my opinion, was to be having Alexis be w/ a man who nearly killed her daughter and nephew. At this point, I wouldn’t be surprise if she fell in love w/ AZ (you know the man that threatened her little girl). ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply GHfan4life2008 October 14, 2008 i understand that. even though i disagree with you. this is entertainment. it’s not suppose to make sense. since when does anything ever really make sense on television? whoever Alexis decides to sleep with is her business. you can’t blame that on the writers for catering to the j-lex fanbase who wants them together. but in reallife. I’m 100% positive that a woman of Alexis standards wouldn’t be caught dead with a man like jerry. but then again. i could be wrong. i see it happen at the bars. on the streets.”etc:”. and Alexis has a reputation for dating dangerous men for a very long time. that’s no secrete. jerry is no exception to that rule. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe October 14, 2008 THEBEST, I’m still waiting for GH to say that Jerry onscreen’s really Mr. Craig and Julian Stone comes back as my beloved Jerry.. Log in to Reply sueboo54321 October 14, 2008 If he stays, I want my CRAM. Sam and Craig make perfect sense to me. Log in to Reply terrifictam October 14, 2008 ohh COOPER….. Jason was so hot!! *tear* Log in to Reply season1217 October 14, 2008 True, soaps aren’t to be taken too literally but I hate when soaps go so far away from the reality of a character. Alexis being attracted to a dangerous man is nothing new but after all the whooping and hollering she has done about how important the safety of her children is to her, I have a problem with her making time w/ a man who will only increase the chances of that violence touching her children again . Kristina has suffered enough mental damage at the violence she has seen and to be w/ someone who could only put her in more danger is ludicrous. And I’m sorry but if you have feelings for a man who has to convince one his “associates” not to kill you then maybe you need to reexamine some things about what the heck is wrong w/ you that you keep falling for criminals. Also, what does catering to the j-lex fanbase have to do w/ anything? What about the Liason fans? Other soaps have passionate fans of couples who aren’t and may never get back together. It’s not looking good for Lumi fans on DAYS, Jacket fans on ATWT, the list goes on and on. There are even Marty and Todd fans but I seriously doubt they will be in it for the long haul. ________________________ //**It’s the writing, stupid!**\\ Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 October 16, 2008 IA, season, It is dumb that Alexis would be involve with a guy who is a terrorist and is a criminal and she is suppose to be a DA. It doesn’t make sense and having her with Jerry when she bashes Sonny, even though I like Alexis bashing Sonny, when she is hooking up with Jerry who is a mobster and needs to go. I like SR, but they don’t know know what to do with his character and I would love him to be on a soap that appreciate the actors talent. siomonstuart2003 Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
