No. 4: Greg Beecroft for Ian Buchanan as Duke Lavery on General Hospital
What was General Hospital thinking when they attempted to replace daytime superstar Ian Buchanan with Greg Beecroft in 1989? The heat Buchanan shared with Finola Hughes's Anna, wasn't something easily duplicated. Then, just when fans were finally starting to warm up to Beecroft in the role, badfella Julian Jerome killed the mobster with the heart of gold. Results: Failed.
