General Hospital’s Chad Duell Tweets Denial Over Michael Recast Rumors!


General Hospital star Chad Duell says rumors of his ouster have been greatly exaggerated. Okay…so he didn't exactly say that. In fact, all he tweeted was "I'm not," when asked by fans if he was really being recast as mob scion Michael Corinthos III.
 

The gossip about Duell possibly leaving the soap began after casting sides went out for an 18-24 character named "Erik," who has something to prove to Jason and wants to join the mob. You have to admit, that does sound an awful lot like our tortured, spiky-haired Quarter-Cortinthos, but according to Duell he ain't going nowhere!

What do you guys think? Is GH planning to ditch Duell and just keeping the actor out of the loop? Or for once is an actor the first to know what's going on with his job? Sound off in the comments!

    Great pic by the way. It would be foolish to recast without attempting to improve the writing of the character. Chad Duell is a fine actor and stepped into a difficult situation replacing a well-liked Drew Garrett. Michael Corinthos is a horribly written character.

    And since this show will be headed by OLTL’s Frank and Ron, Port Charles may experience an influx of well-built, sexy males between the ages of 18-24! Think Ford Brothers y’all!

    Soapbaby – your right. Ford. Robert died so maybe another. But my idea of that will be another son for Sonny, that Kate Howard had. Who said it was a Michael re-cast anyway? ABC? we all know to believe them, dont we!!

    I feel bad for Chad if he is the first to know about the recast, and it is in fact for his character. He has done a fine job playing Michael Corinthos, and really is a great actor. He works well with the heavy hitters. There is no reason there should be a recast of his character. This is a huge mistake in my opinion.

    It was Daytime Dish who said that it was Michael recast, and we all how credible they are. Chad has step into the role and has done just fine. Listen I think Frank and Ron are making GH less mob centered, thankfully.

    I am with giogio, I think it could be another son of Sonny’s with Kate.

    Plus the GH is on lockdown from what I hear, we don’t really know what’s going on.

    I really hope not, Michael’s a freakin’ horribly written character, but I think CD is PERFECT for the role . . . I was impressed by DG, but CD really owns the role, IMO–he’s such a little Jason, and this is coming from someone who really doesn’t care for SB . . . but CD nails all the Jason stuff in a really effective, admirable way.
