Sean Kanan RETURNS to General Hospital!






I've been dropping hints on the blog and on the podcast like a British royal dropping trou, but now it's official! TV Guide's Michael Logan is reporting Sean Kanan is returning to ABC Daytime's General Hospital! Said Kanan:

"This is all pretty surreal and utterly unexpected — in fact, I thought it was going to take an Act of Congress to get me back on GH!" says Kanan, referring to his wildman ways and past alcohol issues that led to his ouster from the show in 1997. "GH is one of those places I never thought I'd see again and that makes what's happened even more exciting. My life has changed completely since those days. I'm newly married and have a baby on the way. I also have an 11-year-old daughter and four stepchildren. I'm not the guy I used to be."

Will Kanan's character turn out to be the long-dead AJ Quartermaine, last played by Billy Warlock? Looks like GH is keeping that one to themselves! For more of Logan's article on Kanan's return, click here.

Okay! Fine! I take back what I said about bringing on vets in the GF being ousted from Y&R post.

I am so behind this casting! I CANNOT wait for him to be on screen in Port Charles again! Sad part is his AJ was before my time, but I love him from his Y&R/B&B days.

Wow, considering he just now appeared on today's B&B clearly shows he was only going to be around in LA for a few episodes and only to expose Bill's dirty Italy plan, the poof, Deacon hits the road again!

I am very excited about this. He is so hot- just what we need. I hope he is AJ- being held somewhere with Alan. Then Carly has to be like dang you are fine!! What was I thinking!!!

AJ Quartermaine LIVES!!!!!! Sean was playing him when I started watching and I instantly fell in love with him. This is the perfect time for him to return, too. With Edward's untimely death soon coming up, AJ can go head to head with Tracy over ELQ. Plus, without Guza & Frons' influence, we can see a fair story with Michael being torn between AJ & Sonny with Carly thrown in for good measure.

This is great news!!!! Not only AJ lives but the Quartermaines actually live on. Monica is going to get screen time beyond Jason's exit. This is wonderful news!! I'm so excited.

Welcome back, Sean!!!! May more Qs follow. Smile

Jamey do you know if this is a short run (ie will he kidnap jason and thats how jason exits the canvas) or will he be back for a real story?

This is great news - his AJ was so much better than BW's AJ IMHO

Just wow. My former school mates who used to watch/tape GH religiously when he was last on the show have got to be thrilled! I even had a brief stint watching back then too.

Well, no one can accuse them of not trying with GH, that's for sure.

HOLY.CRAP! This is exciting!!! Jamey - do you know who he is playing? They are not saying AJ AND Steve Burton exits around that time. You don't think or know if he is a recast for Jason? In my mind it's not out of the question.

If he is definitely playing AJ, can you imagine the hell he is going to put Carly, Sonny and Michael through? I LOVE THIS!!!!!

Not many actors will bring me back to a show, but he's one of them. -- it would be great if he returned with Laura:)

He must be at the Swiss clinic in a room next to Robin. Emily & Alan can be there, as well. Just saying Smile

Jason Morgan recast? They are keeping his part under wraps. Could be AJ, could be someone else.

WOHOOOOO!!! Praise the Lord!

Not only am I happy that he is back in GH which is the HOTTEST soap right about...um, yep - now, but I am SO happy that this enormously talented actor by the name of Sean Kanan is employed!!! That a soap truly sees this man's talent and charisma and uses it! Yessss!

What a treat to GH fans, especially old school fans!!!

One thing though - it has to be AJ. I don't really want Jason back on my screen.

This should be good! At that old Youttube clip is awesome! That's when I first started to watch.

Let's hope he is AJ Quartermaine who RC makes into the next "it" man on the show. Make him a rich bad boy (grey character) and not an all and out villain.

Thank you for saying that, Jamey. That would be a suicide mission and I don't think that SK would have signed on if he was about to follow Steve Burton.

Here's hope that he comes back as A.J. It just has to be A.J.
RC planed a Quartermaine storyline since the beginning of the year. That's his chance to do that iconic family some justice.

I guess that they don't clarify on SK coming back as A.J. for a twist/surprise that comes with him. Can't wait for Oct 29.
