HomeTVGeneral HospitalGeneral Hospital Spoilers! Regan Cellura March 23, 2010 35 Comments Here’s the Scoop! I know everyone wants to know what led to Drew Garrett being let go as Michael. There is TONS of speculation out there. From what I could gather, while it took us all by shock, the recast MAY have been happening behind the scenes for a bit now. This doesn’t mean some of his co-stars weren’t caught off guard by the news. Ingo Rademacher was tweeting as recent as Friday that he needed to run lines with Drew for upcoming scenes. Laura Wright tweeted Monday that she gave Garrett a big hug and wished him well. Both said they had no idea what led to his being let go from General Hospital. How about some scoop? Robin takes the stand in defense of her favorite man to defend, Sonny! Will she crumble under cross examination? While she paints the man that she wants everyone to see under Diane’s questioning, Claire gets under Robin’s skin. Will Robin’s testimony cause another Scrubs squabble about the local godfather? The Q Mansion is filling up! Remember both Maya and Skye hit town soon. Brook Lynn follows shortly, closer to May Sweeps. After Kristina witnesses Sonny’s outburst in court… she’s a little uneasy with Daddy. Carly will try to soothe Kristina and explain Sonny to her. Dante has a warning for Carly. She might want to keep Morgan away from the men in blue. When will Ethan’s name be cleared? The truth will come out eventually. Remember the RUMOR about Kiefer’s demise? It MAY be a classic case of things getting worse, much worse before they get better. So the GOSSIP out there is that Kiefer loses it once again and beats Kristina. Someone walks in on it and kills Kiefer. Who? Is it Dante as some of the CHATTER suggests? Is it a female? Is this all a good piece of FanFic? CRAZY and RANDOM… Elizabeth gets the results of the paternity test Nikolas had done. The results Nikolas wants her to see. Will Dr. Lisa know the real results? Dante and Lucky find evidence that points in Kiefer’s direction. Michael tries to escape the island once again. 35 Responses keanna March 23, 2010 As always thanks for the spoilers, Regan!!!!! I am sure what really happened with Drew will come out sooner or later. What is Chad Duell’s real age? I am reading and hearing very different things. I hope when you say eventually the truth will come out about Kristina’s attack, you mean a week, but it sounds like it will be about a month. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 March 23, 2010 Patrick is becoming a bigger douche bag with every passing episode!! Why would he just ARBITRARILY decide to give his "opinion" today to Lucky, telling him that he THINKS that Ethan is guilty??? What qualifies him to point the finger at someone else without having all the evidence?? Is he a member of law enforcement? Didn’t think so. And that Lisa chick that he’s gonna eventually end up cheating on Robin with ALSO gets more boring with each passing episode!!! Does Luke Spencer REALLY think he can convince Sonny to ease up on Ethan or not kill Ethan?? Because of their STRONG friendship??? This is gonna be war, but I’m looking forward to it. Anything that means more Luke Spencer is alright with me!! Keanna— I heard he’s 34!!! I hope that’s wrong, otherwise it means that Laura Wright, who plays his mother, would have had him when she was 5 years old!! LOL!!! I doubt that’s possible, but stranger things have happened in Soapland!! Log in to Reply keanna March 23, 2010 Alstonboy, that’s exactly what I heard, too. But I am also hoping that’s not the case, but like you said these are soaps, and you are right stranger things have happened. Log in to Reply GH LOVER March 23, 2010 Thanks Regan for the scoops there are a lot of rumors why they let Drew go . I hope it is not because he is not Hunk , because if this is this is stupid reason because Drew is only 20 he is young and when Steve came to GH he was at the same age as Drew and he wasn’t Hot like today….. it takes time….. And also JJ no one thinks of him as hunk but he is amazing with a couple Stories like the LnL2 stuff and they let go of Greg who was hunk to have JJ ,So why do the opposite with Drew…. By the way I don’t think the new guy is that good looking.. and about his acting I will wait and see and hope for the best because Drew was really amazing…..

Like you said, stranger things have happened. Log in to Reply janna71 March 23, 2010 He doesn’t look 34 and he is a cutie, at my age saying hot would not be right lol. Here is the link to his page on IMDB. Chad Duell http://www.imdb.com/name/nm3212798/resume Looks a lot like Drew Log in to Reply jlj0117 March 23, 2010 i have seen the kid on tv. if he is 34, then he looks EXTREMLY, UNBELEIVABLY, young for his age. Log in to Reply dgcbsa March 23, 2010 lol i registered just to post that link janna71… but according to that he is between 18-20, which is what he looks like. Anyway not looking forward to Drew Garrett leaving. He is amazing as Michael, and its a shame GH couldn’t keep him. Hopefully another show picks him up quick. I do want to find out what led to him being fired though so if anyone has any insider scoop. Log in to Reply elc914 March 23, 2010 I was shocked also to hear that they let Drew Garret go. I hope the real reason for his departure comes out real soon. I thought that they had a great find and he looked like Laura Wright too. I feel so bad for him its not even a year yet is it that he has been on? Will just have to get used to this new Michael now! I just wonder though if the cast really new something was going on with Drew because there is always gossip in the workplace. Gosh I hope that this Kristina storyline will wrap up now! It’s getting harder and harder for me to feel bad for her anymore. I’m really liking Ethan now though! Log in to Reply ConqueringBlue March 23, 2010 If Chad Duell IS really 34, who cares? As long as he looks the age of the part. The guy who plays Jackson on Hannah Montana is in his 30s too, and he plays Miley’s slightly older brother on that show. I had no clue he was around 30 until I read about it online, because he’s so little LOL A few years ago when I turned 30 I was still getting carded for R rated movies and buying alcohol, that stopped only just recently. Anyone remember Andrea on 90210, who was in her 30s playing a 16 year old? But she looked almost her age LOL At least this guy looks pretty young Log in to Reply Cyberologist March 23, 2010 I just really wonder why Drew was let go… I mean he’s done a fantastic job when I’ve seen him. HIs acting is fine for me…just odd they would can him. Log in to Reply dgcbsa March 23, 2010 Drew Garrett is a fantastic actor. He played all the emotions during his stint at GH. I just hope he can quickly land another gig on prime time or even another soap that treats their talent better.

Um GH Lover, I’m not sure where you were back in the early 90′s, but Steve was just as hot then as he is now. Just with a little more bulk now! Anyone remember the TV show Out of This World?? LOL… Log in to Reply GH LOVER March 23, 2010 Yes Ahanshew I saw that I don’t think Steve will like to see it now LOL.. All I am saying IMO that he wasn’t that hot when he started ,he was cute and good looking ,BUT today he looks better……. If the rumors are true all I am saying that they should have let Drew stay and let him grew up with Michael who is still 18… Log in to Reply Grimm March 23, 2010 Maybe I missed it, but did Anthony Geary’s talk show appearance where he confirmed that he and Elizabeth Taylor were an item back in her Helena Cassidine days not rate a mention hereabouts? Clip from the ep of Wendy Williams last week here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=82MU0qWfsg0&feature=youtube_gdata Log in to Reply Grimm March 23, 2010 [quote=alstonboy4315]I thought Anthony Geary was gay!!!!??? Seriously, I did.[/quote] One being true need not exclude the other. In fact, I think the promos for the show touting"Anthony Geary’s BIG revelation" on the famously gay-friendly Wendy show, intentionally played into that belief whether its true or not. Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 March 23, 2010 I thought Anthony Geary was gay!!!!??? Seriously, I did. Besides, if Drew Garrett WERE doing such a "horrible" job, and was so unprofessional—WHICH I DON’T believe—-why the hell did they pre-nominate him for an Emmy??? That would be REWARDING his behavior, if he were unprofessional or not getting the job done!!! They could have EASILY put that guy who plays Morgan, or the guy who plays Keifer in his place for the pre-nom!! Again, still waiting to hear the real story!!! Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin March 23, 2010 Ummm he was hot back then too http://www.hunkymalecelebs.com/steve_burton/pictures/6.jpg (I wish I knew how to insert pictures) Log in to Reply alstonboy4315 March 23, 2010 Steve Burton has always been hot, I agree. However, he was INSANELY thin before….I’ve seen pictures. He looked VERY much in need of a cheeseburger—-or 12!!!! Good thing he started hitting the gym!!!! Log in to Reply TV Gord March 23, 2010 Jed Allen played Edward Quartermaine for a while, and he’s only TWO YEARS older than Stuart Damon, who played his son, Alan. Log in to Reply abc soap lover March 24, 2010 Drew Garrett being let go is very unfortunate whatever the reason. We need to give the new guy a fair shot at the role. These things happen in show business all the time especially in daytime drama. While the actor is gone the character remains. Lets see where the stoyline takes him. Log in to Reply purplebraids March 24, 2010 Hi Regan thank you for the spoilers and I wanted to know if the writers have plans on what to do with Brooklyn when she comes back and we going to see Matt get his owen storyline .When is the beyond bord west Niles leaving the show .I know most people don`t like Claire but I do she`s tough .

Log in to Reply angrierblackerman March 24, 2010 It could be a Disney thing. The Mouse House could be trying to cash in on the popularity of WOWP and draw in even YOUNGER viewers. Even though I was watching All My Children at age 8, I don’t know if I want my tween nieces watching a soap like GH. lol! But I am just speculating. Log in to Reply Regan Cellura March 24, 2010 As far as the RUMORS go with Drew… I really hate to say one way or the other since I really don’t know what the true story is. Anyone can talk and say what they want. I’ve seen the item that he wasn’t "hunky" enough for the incoming females which I just can’t wrap my head around. When you have a talent like Drew, you cast to him, not the other way around and frankly, looking at the picture, nuMichael doesn’t appear to be all that more hunky, in comparison to Drew that is. That is just my two cents… Will I give the new guy a fair shot? I’ll try to. I’m really ticked about this and again not knowing what led to this happening, from a fan’s point of view, Drew took on a role that I expected Dylan Cash to grow up in and Drew MADE me eat my expectations. I hope TPTB make me eat my anger. Log in to Reply mjessi76 March 24, 2010 [quote=ahanshew] Anyone remember the TV show Out of This World?? LOL… [/quote] I am so glad someone else remembers that show. That was when I FIRST fell in love with Steve Burton! He definitely was hot back then…yeah not sexy like he is now, but for teenage girls he was hot! Log in to Reply ahanshew March 24, 2010 Ummm he was hot back then too http://www.hunkymalecelebs.com/steve_burton/pictures/6.jpg (I wish I knew how to insert pictures) I knew you’d back me up, EET!! LOL! Log in to Reply GH LOVER March 24, 2010 Hey peeps I am big Steve Burton fan you all know LOL I just think that today Steve looks better than when he was at Drew age….. BIG STEVE BURTON FAN Log in to Reply bg407 March 24, 2010 I read on this site that one of the new characters coming to town, younger daughter of Justice Ward, is supposed to be hooked up with Michael. I am confused. Michael’s biological father is Edward’s grandson and the girl’s biological father is Edward’s son – they are cousins. How can they have any relationship? He is less biologically related to Kristina who is his sister. Can anyone help me out and explain how this is not incest? Thanks! PS: I love Drew as Michael and am shocked by this cast change. Unless it was his decision, I think the show is crazy. PSS: I think Anna Devane’s cousin, Aidan from All My Children, needs to come to GH stat and add a funny, hot man to this town. So dreary it is hard to watch every day. PSSS: Lisa is an easy recast. Stupid if they keep this unknown with no talent while they could find someone better who might make us care about Lisa. Right now, she is cliche and her breaking up Robin and Patrick is cliche. Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin March 25, 2010 I would LOVE for Aidan to make his way to GH. I could SO see an Aiden/Sam/Jason love triangle. Log in to Reply maxsmom March 25, 2010 bg407, one of the new characters will be related to Michael, the other will be her younger half sister, so not a blood relative Log in to Reply semprasectum March 25, 2010 I want Ethan to be cleared. .. .soon. .. .but I hope it is only after the Sonny-Luke battle to the death-with the rapist Luke ending up DEAD. For Kristine, I am hoping she ends up as the Port Charles first teen-age brothel owner/operator. She deserves to be on her back the rest of her lying life. JMHO Log in to Reply abc soap lover March 25, 2010 Can we get Adian some acting lessons first? Log in to Reply EricasEvilTwin March 25, 2010 Sempra thats a terrible thing to say. She is a kid. Log in to Reply chadnotdrew May 1, 2011 I never really understood the connection people felt with Drew. I suppose I was still getting used to HIM when Chad came along. If anything, I think Drew was simply a good teenage segway between young Michael and adult Michael. I’m not sure I would have liked him playing the more “adult” Michael or acting in the current storylines. I think Chad is a great fit as Michael becomes a man.
