Regan Cellura October 24, 2008 20 Comments Lots of speculation and one Tom Pelphrey rumor later, David Lago (ex-Raul, Young and the Restless) has been cast as Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Olivia’s (Lisa LoCicero) son Dante on General Hospital. Nelson Branco has the news in his latest Suds Report. According to SPOILERS, Dante SHOULD appear towards the end of Sweeps. 20 Responses daisyclover1938 October 24, 2008 Love Him!! I’d think he’d be a little too old to play Dante, but what the heck…it’ll be nice to see him back on daytime Log in to Reply timepass October 24, 2008 Just blah! Log in to Reply Regan Cellura October 24, 2008 I know zero about him other than seeing him on the emmy stage. So DC posters tell us what you think!

Log in to Reply McD720 October 24, 2008 Casting David Lago in this role is a really good fit. He did a fantastic job on Y&R as Raul, especially during Raul’s diabetes diagnosis. His goodbye scenes with his great love Brittany Hodges were fantastic and are what finally won him the Emmy. This is a great get for GH. Wonder if we will see David Lago’s character interact with Lucky/Greg Vaughan since they used to play brothers on Y&R? Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 24, 2008 I like David but…I wonder if he has the chops needed for sucha meaty role??? Log in to Reply daisyclover1938 October 24, 2008 I guess we’ll find out Jamey IMO, back on Y&R he was a fine actor, handsome, likeable… With good writing (and barring any disgusting facial hair) it should work out! Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 24, 2008 I just hope he doesn’t have that Danny Romalottie hair bang business going on. Give that boy a nice Caesar cut, or some short spikes like Lucky. Log in to Reply soapjunkie88 October 24, 2008 Oh … I really have to watch GH again. Love him!!! Log in to Reply MichaelKnight October 25, 2008 I love me some Tom Pelphrey but he was WAY too old to play a 19 or 20 year old. This guy looks too old too. And why, why, why hit us over the head with 20 years ago this, 20 years ago that if you’re going to cast someone who is so obviously over the age of 19 or 20? That now makes him younger (in SORAS years) than LuLu. Is this the same guy that had that f’ed up hair and during his Emmy speech thanked god, jesus christ, lord almighty and all that other religious crap? (And no I’m not talking about the Chad Braden religious rant during his speech). Log in to Reply Dinah October 25, 2008 Dinah Well I know that Maurice will make him a better actor Log in to Reply BigDede October 25, 2008 He will be good for like a couple weeks but since he is suppose to “fall” for Lulu, he will be another ruined character. Log in to Reply Luke Kerr October 25, 2008 Because she’s the new Carly. Log in to Reply Jamey Giddens October 26, 2008 Lulu got that "good-good"! Log in to Reply Beth October 27, 2008 OH GOODY GOODY GOODY!!! Another greasy mob-boss wannabe and yet ANOTHER example of how ever “verile” Sonny is. God, I’m making myself sick. Log in to Reply Jillian Bowe October 27, 2008 God can we stop all the young boyz in PC to be enamored with LOO-LOO?! I wish Serena came to town… THEN this would be a great storyline where she can snag Johnny from that chick. Log in to Reply MichaelKnight October 25, 2008 Maurice will teach him NEVER look at the person you are in a scene with, Never look them in the eye, and ignore them at all costs. Look to the ground when in a scene with anyone at all. It’s called ‘acting’. And if they must see you looking at them during a scene, then scream relentlessly and for no reason. GH likes that. Log in to Reply sb_fan October 25, 2008 He’s gonna fall for Lulu???, Oh CRAP!!!! Why in the world does every new young male Character on GH always fall for Lulu?
