Scotty Baldwin Kicks Off Campaign to Become D.A. on General Hospital

Get ready to see more of General Hospital fan favorite Kin Shriner onscreen. Shriner's character Scotty Baldwin is set to launch his campaign to become Port Charles' District Attorney once again and clean up the city's mob problem. TV Guide Magazine caught up with Shriner to talk about Scotty's storyline.

TV Guide Magazine: Should Scotty win the election, will he use — or, more likely, abuse — his power to get back at Luke?

Shriner: If he can't have the girl and live happily ever after, he may as well be the disgruntled, wisecracking, fast-talking lawman and make Spencer miserable! He also plans to bring down that mobster Sonny Corinthos, who got Scott's daughter involved in drugs and stripping. He also needs to do something about the ineffectual PC police department headed by Anna Devane. And now we've got even more mobsters in town with this Ava and Julian Jerome. Of course, Scotty can't really fix this mess. [Laughs] If we clean up the town, we got no show!

    I do love seeing the classic characters, no matter how seldom it is…and Robin M. posted on FB she has a new story and is featured heavily the first 2 weeks of Nov i think.

    Could we please see some updated opening credits? Take all the OLTL’ers out and get some real GH’ers in there?

    I hope we actually see that storyline play out on-screen and not only have it mentioned once a month. I get that they have to look at the show’s budget but I’m at the point where I say either do right by them or let them rest.

    It’s not in the interest of fans to see Laura once a month only to have her marry Scott, run after Luke and see her marriage to Scott fall apart before she returns to Paris for a longer time while she is suppose to relaunch Deception with Lucy.

    As for the opening credits. I think the need to be redone because the current opening looks so cheap. Looking at three year old promo photos from the cast in an awful edited montage isn’t worthy of any television show. Any fan made opening would look better.
    As for the FORMER Llanview three. People can like it or not but these three people are on contract with GH. They deserve their spot in the opening.

    Thanks for posting the link to Kin’s interview.

    I really wish actors would stop pushing to only work with certain actors on this show and let the writers write their stories. How many of us can tell our employers we will ONLY work with specific co-workers? FV/RC need to put a stop to that crap and tell these folks to play the story as written or kick rocks.

    Where in the hell are Liz and AJ?

    I’ve always liked that Scotty carries a torch for Laura, but it’s always looked to me as if Kin Shriner has better chemistry with Lynn Herring and Tony Geary has better chemistry with Jane Elliott. I’m happy Laura’s back, but I don’t know who they’ll put her with

    My point is that there are OTHER contract players as well, aren’t there? Tyler Christopher for one? And Spin ain’t on contract anymore, and KeSu is long gone. I’d say at LEAST add Maura West, Tyler Christopher and another hotty?
