Who Will Ryan Carnes Be Eating Out as General Hospital’s Lucas?





Father's Day is coming early for Julian Jerome (William deVry) on General Hospital. ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting Ryan Carnes is reprising the role of Lucas Stansbury Jones.

Carnes was the ninth actor to play the role of Bobbie (Jackie Zeman) and Tony Jones' (Brad Maule) adopted son back in 2004-05. Lucas is the biological son of mobster Julian Jerome and the late Cheryl Stansbury (Jennifer Anglin). Bobbie bought him on the black market and ended in up a custody battle with Cheryl's sister Tiffany (Sharon Wyatt).  

In addition to GH, Carnes appeared in the cult hit gay movie Eating Out and starred on Desperate Housewives.

    Amazing!!!

    Back in the day, he left “GH” because he was afraid of being typecast after it was announced that Lucas would come out. I’m excited about this news. He fits very well. And the older version of the Ryan Carnes pictured above looks very much like a young William deVry.

    My favorite “DH” moment will always be Bree walking in on Andrew and Justin. :D

    My only hope is though that TPTB please don’t pair him with Felix or Brad. I can’t picture him with either one of them. I’m also not a big Felix fan lately. LOL

    Yeah.

    Felix unfortunately has fallen under the prwincess syndrome and lost his cool factor.

    Brad is scummy, but hilarious.

    Paging, Dr. Tommy Hardy Jr! Liz needs more family on this show, since Audrey/RA has retired and we know the show can never seem to keep a Sarah or Steven Lars.

    I’m so happy Lucas is back but if his only two options are Brad and Felix, he’s doomed. Felix was once a good character but his propping of Sabrina has turned him into a judgmental twit who doesn’t deserve love. I can’t stand him! Brad is not good looking and he’s just annoying.

    Agree with everyone about Felix 100%. He was doing fine until he insisted that Brad as a “sperm donor” be responsible for Britt, which is insane. Now, he insists that Patrick should stay with Suckbrina instead of go back with the love of his life and mother of his child. Hopefully, they will come up with a much better gay option for Lucas.

    Ugh. Brad if I had to choose. Brad definitely deserves better than the likes of Felix. I can’t stand Felix at all anymore. His extended stay in Sabrina’s orbit has done the character no favors. He comes across as annoyingly petty and juvenile most of the time.

    Not that I really want another character added to this bloated canvas but I would rather see Lucas with a different/new character.

    Why does he have to be paired with anyone?

    As said by the posters above, the two other gays in the village are neither of them good or interesting options. There’s plenty of story they can write for Lucas based on his family connections alone without having him hook up with anyone right away.

    Happy that they went back and got a recognizable Lucas. In Felix’s defense, he doesn’t know Robin and Sabrina is his BFF. Ya’ll would react to her coming back the same way. Everybody can’t and shouldn’t be #TeamScrubs lol

    I can’t believe I’m about to say this, but I would rather see Lucas straight than be paired with any of these characters. Brad is the lesser of two evils, but both characters are unlikable, IMO.

    The issue I have with Felix is not that he is Sabrina’s BFF. For the 1st year I was completely fine with it. But in my opinion, Felix became too judgmental and started having opinions on things he knows nothing about. That’s when Felix became very unlikable for me.

    If there has to be a love interest, I think it will eventually be Felix. And MAYBE I could get on board with it if Felix gets back to his old self. Maybe he just needs to have a life, needs his own problems. Maybe then he isn’t so annoying anymore. With his current character however, I wouldn’t want him anywhere near Lucas.

    And yeah, TPTB should start with the family drama before they think about giving Lucas a love interest. That must happen!

    I’m ok with Felix and Brad, but neither one seems like a good fit for Lucas. Plus I’d rather see those two together and definitely not in a triangle. The focus should be on Lucas interacting with the Jeromes, Bobbie, Sam , and Carly. I think it would be interesting if he gravitated more towards Sam and bonded with her. Maybe he still has some resentment towards Carly for the Bobbie/Tony stuff.

    Down the line they could give him a boyfriend (a new guy, not that this show needs another character, but still).

    My dislike for Felix has nothing to do with Scrubs. The way he judged Brad over that baby did it for me. Britt and Brad told the fool Brad was just a sperm donor yet Felix high and mighty behind had to judge Brad for not wanting to be a father. The way he carried on regarding that situation pissed me off.

    Also when he basically told Michael he had to whore himself out for Sabrina also pissed me off. Michael don’t know Sabrina at all yet Felix wanted him to seduce Brad for information? Also the way Felix is all up in Sabrina’s love life. Do any and everything he can so Sabrina can be with Patrick. It made him so annoying.

    All Felix needs is some dick and he’ll be fine lol we’ve all been there. You get a little too invested in someone else’s love life because you don’t have one of your own. You begin to live vicariously through them. He was being a little judgmental of Brad’s “baby” situation, but this is based off months of seeing what an asshole Brad is. I would’ve judged him, too.

    Pimping out Michael wasn’t so bad. He’s a grown ass man and eventually didn’t go through with it. Plus, wasn’t Brad threatening to spill the beans about Michael & Kiki kissing? Once Lucas &/or Brad breaks that back in, Felix won’t have time to be a busybody…

    I also agree that Lucas should be focused on his familial connections in PC before exploring a romance. I need him reconnecting with Carly/Michael/Morgan/Luke, getting to know Sam, being standoffish towards Julian, bonding with Bobbie and being caught between Maxie & Lulu. Once that’s done, then we can see him explore something with frick &/or frack.

    This is Amazing News!!!

    Firstly, the character of Lucas is essential to the GH canvas at this point. There is so much for him to do an be, being a doctor, Julian Jerome’s son, and Carly and Sam’s brother.

    Ryan Carnes is HOT, and he looks like he could be William DeVry’s son, he has every opportunity to be a natural in this role. He can also portray that dark, brooding Jerome side of him if necessary. If tptb plays this right, they are going to have a major player in their hands with this character!

    Finally Lucas is coming home.

    Oh, and that headline is just so wrong :D *tee hee*

    And yes, I agree, that it’s hard for me to see him with either of these men. If it has to be, then it would be Brad for me. I will reserve judgement on that though, until I actually see them interacting. However, the problem has been for me for a long time that I just don’t see either of these as a “natural” match for someone like Lucas. He has so much clout and familial connections on this show. It seems that they would indeed bring a new, stronger character for him to really fawn over. I could imagine Lucas not taking a second look at these guys, especially Felix.

    But yes, there is SO much story to go around with all his familial relationship, so I think and hope that they will use a lot of time to establish that. Can’t wait to see Lucas meet his nephew Danny!

    having the same person play a role is always good .. that he resembles DeVry is moot since Julian had surgery to change his looks/face when he went into the WPP…. just sayin’

    [quote=nysam]Nice eye candy. Hope his acting has improved. I don’t see him with Brad or Felix. More suited for Morgan….whoops, he would be Morgan’s Uncle.[/quote]
    Yes…but not by blood. One if my favorite British soaps went there with a “brother and sister” who weren’t related by blood. They hadn’t been raised together as brother and sister, and the sister was adopted. It was weird, but not like Ridge and Bridget on B&B. That was gross.

    Keep him away from both Felix and Brad. They’re both obnoxious.

    But I can’t wait to see Ryan Carnes and William deVry. Hopefully it will be a good father/son storyline. His back story is so rich with history. Use it.

    An established white character with multiple connections across most of the Port Charles canvas whose roots reach deep into the history of the show; a self-righteous Black guy with a good heart, a fierce loyalty to his friends and unexplored secret involving his sister and parents; and a shady Asian dude determined to distance himself from his smarmy ways, where all three have multiple allies, enemies or potential enemies in Port Charles — although not a single second of such a triangle and/or pairing has yet to air — is….

    a) the potential for one of daytime’s most unusual, even groundbreaking, gay triangles ever, changing up a formerly whitebread formula of (the few) Advocate-friendly storytelling that has dominated gay soap stories so far

    or

    b) deserves to be shot down because at least two of the characters involved aren’t paragons of gay virtue and have not “endeared themselves” to a certain segment of fandom

    Choices, choices…

    How about this as a thought???

    Maybe Lucas comes to town as a doctor and is happily partnered with a hot, older succesful man? Felix and Brad see an example of a happy, healthy gay relationship and grow up.

    When Julian reveals that he is Lucas’s father, Lucas replies I already have a daddy that gives me everything I want. Then it is revealed that his “daddy” is Victor Cassadine!

    First, I can’t believe that porn headline was posted without a photo …

    Secondly, hopefully he’ll be paired with neither. Felix and Brad are repulsive, stereotypical gay characters. I cringe when they’re on screen.

    Thirdly, hopefully he’ll find a 30s-ish Jeff Webber.

    I just love William DeVry as Julian. The man is hot with a body to match. Bringing Lucas on is great, a lot of story ahead. I like both Julian and Ava (Maura West reminds me so much of the actresses from the 40’s, she plays the vixen so well).. Looking forward to stories ahead.

    Are u talking about Sharon and Dennis? Amazing story. I’ll never forget this one.

    Lucas already had to kiss his adopted cousins. And that I recall was a bit awkward. Since I don’t see them turning Morgan gay I think that’s more a fan wish than anything else.

    I can’t see Lucas and Brad 2gether though. Would seem a bit out of place and couldn’t thinkof a way of them getting 2gether.

    ” However, the problem has been for me for a long time that I just don’t see either of these as a “natural” match for someone like Lucas.”

    IA.I don’t see either one of them working with Lucas. I would pick Brad if I had to choose but someone new would be better. Unfortunately I don’t see that happening because RC likes Felix.

    Unless Brad or Felix turn out to be Sonny’s son, I don’t see them putting Lucas with either character. And given how quickly Oliver & Kyle were written out on OLTL, I don’t imagine Lucas will have much of a relationship, if any

    I’m over the moon with this news! Loved Ryan Carnes as Lucas, never cared for that Hogestyn guy. I wish there were another character from a mainstay Pt Charles family that was out….we learned that lesson from Kish (whom I loved anyway.) I’d love to see Lucas with a hot daddy and Thaao Penghliss still looks great, but a 70 year old lover is stretching things a bit….even if he does look like Victor Cassadine!

    @evermore….Kyle and Fish weren’t tied to any core family. I don’t think that helped their stay on OLTL. Lucas has family relationships so he is more of an integral character.

    :O Even thinking this should be all shades of wrong. LOL

    And yeah, I wouldn’t compare Kyle and Fish to this situation. Lucas is tied to a major, no make that two major families on the show. So I’m not too worry about that.

    Is there any news if Ryan Carnes is on contract anyway? I hope they did sign him. No news about an first air date either!?

    I wasn’t watching GH when Carnes was playing Lucas. I had checked out by then. I also haven’t seen any of his other work. I gather he wasn’t all that memorable, so perhaps he will be a perfect mix to the Felix/Brad saga. Btw, where’s Milo?

    @patchworks….When Carnes played the role of Lucas he didn’t get much air time. He was on less than a year and I recall had a handful of episodes. His story was supporting to Maxie, Lulu, Georgie & Dillon who were the main teen focus.

    Ryan was the more natural Lucas to me

    Im excited. Id be ok to pair lucas with Felix or brad if these characters werent just annoying as hell and have no personaility..

    Since RC has tapped into Loving & Ryan’s Hope, maybe Owney Ryan or Tyler Alden are Gay and are Lucas BF Or maybe he is still dating Guy (Nicholas DiNardo) who Georgie introdued Lucas to in 2005

    So glad to have him back! I don’t know if anyone ever saw his sexy photo shoot by Jeff Slater a few years ago called “Sunday Morning with Ryan Carnes”, but here’s a few. :)

    Hello!!!

    Looking at these pictures he is too good for either of those fools!!

    I remember when he first came on he wanted Brooklyn then he started acting weird around her and came out as gay. Lucas and Brooklyn was cute for those little few seconds Lucas was trying to get with her.

    That’s what I’m hoping for – Lucas with a straight/confused character like Morgan. NOT Brad or Felix – those annoying queens!!!!!!! There is NO sex appeal. They are just annoying clowns with side stories – let’s have Lucas be a REAL character, please! It always amazes me how gay writers and producers can suck at gay characters so badly (Kyle, Fish, Brad, Felix). Then over at Days, the straight producers and writers excel with Will and Sonny.

    It may not be biological, but Morgan & Michael are Lucas’ nephews in every way that counts, so he can’t turn them out lol
