Log in to Reply kerfuffles November 22, 2008 Awesome! I loved this actor on GH but thought the show had absolutely no idea what to do with him. He was Pure Evil Jerry one day, Pure Nice Jerry another, Nice Jerry Who Was Really Evil another day day, then Misunderstood As Evil Jerry Who Really Had A Heart ‘O Gold the next. I love 24 and think SR will fight right in with this show. Log in to Reply ladyofthelake November 22, 2008 Aw, he got a part on the show his girlfriend is on. All joking aside, Sebastian Roche will always get work, he’s that good. Log in to Reply Simple C November 22, 2008 Good for him! He’ll do good on the show. Log in to Reply Scout November 22, 2008 He’s absolutely perfect for ’24′. Log in to Reply sueboo54321 November 22, 2008 I miss 24. I think he will be fabulously creepy on there. *****Never fear spellcheck. It is your friend.****** Log in to Reply LuvSKate November 22, 2008 Good for him! I am one of the few who has never seen 24 but maybe I’ll check it out if Sebastian is going to be on. GH is run by a bunch of morons who continue to cast away fabulous, potential filled actors – I’m glad to see this one find such a wonderful home outside of daytime. Daytime TV is seriously testing my patience lately with such castaways. Log in to Reply SusieQ November 22, 2008 oh, he’ll be great terrorist material on 24! I am so pumped for Sunday’s tv movie!!! I can’t wait!!! Log in to Reply siomonstuart2003 November 22, 2008 I glad for Sebastian. Hated Jerry Jax/James Craig, but love the actor. He will be greatly appreciated on a show for his full potential instead of being hijacked with dumb s/ls and bad writing that is known for Gh now. Good luck SR. siomonstuart2003 Log in to Reply ange-i-am November 22, 2008 Good for him! Glad 24 is back this weekend!! Um, was that the first Amelia? I hope it was, I was just beginning to tolerate her and they replaced her with that sex bot. —————– Hey, you got a lot of weight on your shoulder.

I forgot there were two of them. Which one had sex with Sonny? —————————————– “As a Liz fan, I know she is hypocritical at times, but really who isn’t?” —The voice of Reason in a crazy, soapy world Log in to Reply timepass November 22, 2008 Well it is GH law; if you are good you leave if you are not so good you have to stay! He is great and I am not surprise he found a job right away! Log in to Reply sueboo54321 November 22, 2008 Isn’t it possible that he was offered the job and left on his own in order to take it? *****Never fear spellcheck. It is your friend.****** Log in to Reply ange-i-am November 22, 2008 Yeah, samrocks, the first one was the redhead. It was the brunette that slept with Sonny for the first time. You know, cause Sonny is so irresistible. RME Then they switched her back to the redhead. —————– Hey, you got a lot of weight on your shoulder.

It was in one of the magazines back in June or July that he was taking off some time to do a few of them. Log in to Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply You must be logged in to post a comment.
