General Hospital's Ingo Rademacher: "I'm Fired."






Man that Mickey is one cold blooded mouse! ABC Soaps in Depth has published a statement from Ingo Rademacher confirming his exit from General Hospital as dashing corporate raider Jasper Jacks.  

"After 15 years on GH portraying Jax I must say goodbye. I'm fired.

That's it GH, get rid of all your talented, familiar vets and keep the five-day a week newbies. That's exactly what disheartened soap fans want to see. For more from Rademacher, click here.

Sad. He's a good actor. I think it's only a beginning though. I bet others will get let go.

I must say though, his online twitter rants didn't help his case. When you start bashing your bosses, do you really expect to get a slap on the wrist?

I bet money if a Donald Trump employee started bashing him on twitter, Trump would fire his ass instantly...

This is a business at the end of day.

I feel bad for him, but next time he should have kept his mouth shut.

I don't mean to be heartless, but I think he should've been cut long ago--the character has always been so uninteresting and I'm sure IR is one of the show's top-paid stars after the unholy trinity (AG, MB, and SB). Hope they write Jax & Brenda off together, one of the only ways to save these two characters, IMO.

I love Ingo...and I have always liked the character of Jax. I will miss him terribly. I wish Ingo the best in all future endeavors, and would love for him to become a regular on Hawaii 5 O.

His character had become totally irrelevant anyway. So he shouldn't have been surprised by this.

If it was JFP wouldnt Frons have an ugly hand in it?

I have to admit that when an actor that started out in daytime leaves for "greener" or "newer" pastures and then comes back my sympathy for them getting fired is a bit less than those that have stuck within the daytime community for the long haul and they get fired. This is what I feel for Ingo and Tyler. Sorta sad to see them both go because they were both instrumental when I loved GH, but meh.

Although, I have to say I loooved Titans and I keep hoping that it will come out on DVD so I can see the unaired episodes. Plus, I kinda want to see if I can tell if Yasmine Bleeth is totally out of it.

Awww, that's sad. Don't watch GH anymore, but always loved "jax".

"We've" got AUSSIES in Genoa City, folks!! Maybe CBS can snag Peanut's Dad up to work alongside Genie & Tristan Rogers.... Smile

Any ABC actor who finds his way out of daytime is probably LUCKY in the long run. Must be hard to work for such a Giant Asshole.

Just Sayin'.

giogio...

One of the DC bloggers would be better to answer this question, because they know more then me.

But I'm assuming Frons would have a hand in this.

I agree with Dynamitekiddo that they should send Jax and Brenda off together...and that way give us back at least a little of the magic that we had in the 90s...I like Ingo...he exudes positive energy..I wish him well!

Man, the Rapture must have missed memo that its scheduled for tomorrow, lol....First, Guza is fired. Then TMZ just reported that "Macho Man" Randy Savage has passed away. Now, Ingo is officially done at GH.

All jokes aside, I was kind of hoping they reconsider.

And sorry. I personally cannot consider him or Jax to have been irrelevant. Maybe in the ass backward logic that Guze established were all good guys with common sense are the bad guys. But its not like Jax doesn't have friends, acquaintances and a child still on canvas. Possibly another if rumors of Brenda's kid is true.

Jax could have been an asset to the show. They like most actors they want to be rid of, destroyed him. His business dealing IMO are more interesting than playing cops & robbers! (mob)

Of course Guza had a hand in this. Guza was just fired. Ingo's fate was decided way before Guza had a clue he was going to be unemployed.
BTW-is he unemployed? Does anyone know if he lost his position but remains with abc??

I loved TITANS Soapy Bitch! Over the top soapy goodness!! I wish too they would put it on DVD along with Central Park West (Kylie Travis-such a diva!), Models Inc. (Emma Samms-crazy ass Grayson!), anyone remember Pasadena? LOVED that show, great writing. I cant remember all the details but i remember Dana Delany had some big secret and was trying to get it on with some teenage boy! (maybe!) I think they had un aired episodes too.

I am starting to wonder which vets will still be around to close GH, and I am not talking about Sonny and Jason. So the "cleaning house" is in full force.

Not shocked. I don't think I'll miss Jax, however, I truly did love him with Carly.

Jax and Alexis are the only PC characters that call out what goes on in Port Charles for what it us. Now one is fired and the other is never on. Sigh....

Best wishes to Ingo.

GH's budget got slashed because it's ratings are terrible. It's budget is probably was cut to OLTL levels I'd guess.

Rebecca Herbst was the first to be fired but fan uproar saved her. Ingo and Tyler Christopher aren't as popular.

I can only hope that Nancy Lee Grahn isn't fired soon.

If I were making a business decision about which soap to cancel now, GH would go before OLTL. It's ratings are much better.

Good luck to Ingo as well as the rest of the not yet fired GH actors. I have to assume we will be hearing of GH's cancellation within the next week. Dumb MF's. I hope Disney tanks, vacation at Universal people!

I wish him nothing but the best. It seems these rumors are coming to pass as fact... When he said he wasn't getting much screentime, I thought something was up then.

But other people remembered Titans on NBC????? I LOVED that show! It was like 'Dynasty for the new millennium' or something. I was in high school when it came on, and I thought it would be the new nighttime soap that I'd talk about the next day with friends. They promoted it like a celebrity giving a water birth on national television, and then it was over like that. OTT goodness! Loved the original theme song too. I listen to it on YT sometimes, lol!

And I loved Pasadena too! I'm not even a Dana Delany fan, and I loved her on that show!

While I wasn't a big fan of the character of Jasper Jax, I certainly didn't hate the character either. This is pretty sad. More of the vets are leaving only to have the vacancies filled by newbies who are just completely dull.

Yeesh. ABC is digging their own grave. I don't see a future for a station that axes it shows, pisses off it's fans, and keeps a moron like frons at the helm.

Goodluck to you Ingo and your family Ingo!
