I know it’s the 50th Anniversary, but the cast is over stuffed to the gills, along with multiple story threads going on. Is the young man being brought on to fill the space that ME’s McBain will leave when he goes off canvas back to Llanview, per PP dictates?… 0:) Log in to Reply Yoryla February 26, 2013 Yay for Noah Drake! But…what’s with the son? Are they just casting people’s relatives now? Lol. Well, it does sound like it’s a short-term role (it had better be) so okay. Wonder why there is a need for an undercover cop?? Log in to Reply angrierblackerman February 26, 2013 For Liam, It’s just a walk-on/U5 part from what I am hearing.

Log in to Reply js3557 February 26, 2013 I just looked up his son. He’s good looking and has acting experience on stage…which is a lot harder than acting on tv. I don’t mind it if it’s done the right way. Log in to Reply iowaninmn February 27, 2013 Did they put Noah and Bobbie together when Noah first came back a few years back? I know he was with Anna. I hope Noah and Bobbie get a chance to re-connect during the 50th anniversary. Log in to Reply ANGELWENDY15 February 27, 2013 It would be great to have Rick S sing at the Nurses Ball. And with Bobbie returning, I hope we see some scenes between her and Noah. Log in to Reply JasonMorganIsAHottie February 28, 2013 I am THRILLED that Rick is returning to GH! I wish Liam the best of luck too. I hope to see Noah have scenes with Patrick, Anna, Bobbie, and I hope most that Emma has scenes/charms Noah because I think she’s an adorable young actress!
