did he really skip out on General Hospital to go to ATWT?????

I never watched GL so it really doesn't matter to me...hopefully he's worth all the hype...

Likely his character will be yet another love interest for Alison since he's under 30. Stare

I guess Tom is P&G's go to guy I like him but I think I like him mostly because of how well he worked with Kim Zimmer but i'll give him a shot on ATWT anything to help keep a soap on the air is ok in my book

ARE YOU KIDDING ME!? WOO HOO! I'm a huge fan of his and followed him on GL during his time there. He will be a huge addition to the cast of ATWT.

Guess this means no characters from GL will move over to ATWT.

Sad

Please, no more men for Alison and Meg!!!!! Let him breathe some life into the younger cast, but not at the expense of anybody's screentime. I'm curious to see where this goes. I hear he's a very talented actor.

God no!! Alison (blonde and brunette) has ruined every man under the age of 30 on ATWT. She needs to go!!

Seriously no more men for Alison. I think we are in complete agreement that she and Meg don't need any more falling for them. I think it's time that Alison and Meg hooked up and leave town together after failing with so many men.

Dear ATWT...no one cares...bring back Andy Dixon or John Dixon...I mean that's who we really want to see. I'm tired of these new characters.

He's a little too old, but he would be a good MJ Dixon.

ATWT??? Really? You had the chance to go to GH ... or even any other soap opera on the air ... and you chose ATWT? Holy shit!!!
I hope they at least know how to use him. Would be a real shame if they don't.

ATWT is in NY. He obviously didn't want to stay in LA and be stuck on a soap for 3 to 4 years and not do anything else. He's part of a theatre company. He can do plays like he just did last July and since ATWT will be over within a year he probably didn't sign anything long term.

Looking forward seeing him in another role.

ATWT? R you for real? All I got to say is that they better give him something worthy for him to be on that mess of a show. I love Tom but I don't think him coming on the show is gonna save it.

GH is no prize i mean unless he was part of the clique on that show he would never be use. I would rather he stay with cbs soaps they may not be that great but neither is abc soaps except for OLTL even tho they get shitted on.

Personally, as a GH fan, I am actually glad Tom didn't go to GH, because eventually they would've written his character poorly anyway.

I hope he's Andy Dixon. It would tie him into the canvas and allow him to work closely with some of the better actors on the show.

I can only imagine if Tom has scenes with Van Hansis the two will dual it out for the "Ham-It-Up" award! TV's will be put on mute, but we'll still here the two of them yelling!

Wow. Out of all the shows that I thought could have snagged him I didn't think it would be ATWT. I'm very happy to have Tom back on my TV screen again though.

Great news; what's the latest on Josh and Reva? There was a DC article a while back that said they might go to ATWT. It would be great if they can play the same characters like B&B and Y&R do crossovers. As I said before this would be a great opportunity for a soap to gain more viewers; GL fans will not watch Let's Make a Deal. We may be few but were loyal.
