Jason Cook is cute, but why is his character even on the show? I've only been semi watching since December, and they have not given him anything interesting to do since then. He had a couple of scenes with Nadine that were promising, and that's it. Most of the time he's just the talk to guy. They tried to force his chemistry with Storms and it didn't work so why keep him? Do they really think recreating DAYS on GH will work? It didn't work when they did it with Evans and Nichols.

See, this is the problem with GH right now. ALL THREE of these guys could get blown up at the metro court,and I would have forgotten about them by the time commercials were over. There is seriously not one male character I have felt even remotely attached to. The ones I was attached to they managed to turn into five star douchebags.Fire all three of them and bring back Tristan Rogers,and you MIGHT get my attention. These new young bucks trying to learn how to act during my show are played out!

I picked Johnny but it is because I dislike him least.

The writing sucks for all three. Let me correct myself. What I should have said is that the writing just sucks.

Apparently 8 people like Ethan... LOL...

GH definitely needs some diversity and hot diversity wouldn't be bad either. I picked Johnny. While I would love to see what Jason cook could do on this show, they don't seem too interested in using him. Johnny has the most potential of the three and well you all should know by now how I feel about Ethan.

I always wondered why they didn't just make Johnny Alexis's son so that he would be Sam's twin. I don't know much about Sam's conception, but since GH rewrites everything else, I don't see why this would be a problem.

ugh...none of the above. Ethan is annoying, Matt we never see and Johnny is a 2 bit hood. Spinelli is my pick as leading man.

I figured most liked Spinelli so I didn't include him.

OOOH, Sam and Johnny as twins would be so cool! Then JoMax would be even better because Sam and Maxie could further develop their relationship. Also, it would get Claudia away from Johnny - and once her sick attachment to her brother ceases to exist she would no longer have a reason to be on the show and Sonny, Jason, and Carly could find out about what she did to Michael, and Carly could kill her. A girl can dream, can't she?

Seriously though Regan, why wasn't Spinelli included? I voted for Johnny, but I think it may have been a default decision...

Good call, Regan. A poll that included Spinelli would have been silly since he would probably win by a landslide.

IMO and "research" there aren't too many fans that don't like Spinelli. If I had included him, he would have most likely won by a HUGE margin. And really, what prompted this poll was a discussion in the SPOILER thread about RUMORS that Brandon Barash MAY be leaving. Someone commented that they'd rather see Ethan go and since I don't see Bradford Anderson going anywhere I wanted to see who go the most love from DC readers.

That says a mouthfull LaRoche. When the best this show can come up with for a young male lead is the character of Spinnelli you know this show is dead. Don't get me wrong love Branford Anderson,love the character,love him with Maxie, but when that's the best this show has to offer as young leading man material its time to blow up the casting department and start from scratch. The men are mealy mouthed,and the women are written like vindictive tramps. Got breast cancer?ACT LIKE A BITCH.Got post-partum depression?ACT LIKE A BITCH.Catch a few stray bullets?ACT LIKE A BITCH. i'd love to find the girl in highschool who screwed Guza's head up,and calmly explain to her the destruction her actions have caused for the better part of a decade,after I would love to find his therapist and have their license revoked for releasing this hack into society. I truly feel that strongly about it.

Count me in as someone who does not care that much for Spinelli. In small doses, he's fine, but as a lead, it's nails on chalkboard time. I don't for one second buy that Maxie would fall for him. The only time I like Spinelli is when he's talking with Lulu because Anderson calms down Berman and she doesn't shriek like she normally does. I could actually get interested in a Lulu and Spinelli pairing. The problem I have with the MAxie/Spinelli pairing is that Maxie is constantly telling us why Spinelli is important to her. She would not have to do that if it were apparent. Maxie and Lulu scenes in the garage spoke volumes, and the way he looked at her said more than all of Maxie's dialogue about how great Spinelli is.

Cos' I don't understand..

By the way good call Regan ,Spinelli would have win , so if you would have put him there it wasn't a fair .........

Heres the thing - if Ethan isnt Luke's and the dont bring back Robert, really whats the point. And if he is Luke's, then if you keep him (who would then only be viable with Maxie since he would be related to Lulu) and lose Johnny who had or has chem with both ladies - it makes no sense.

If he is going to be Lucky's brother, how about Ethan and Lizard and let Johnny, spin and matt mix it up with the younger set.

Bring on Etzard!? LEt? Lithan? Lethan? LOL

They all are pretty weak. It's too bad because Johnny had such potential before Lulu sucked the life out of him. I'll go with Johnny cause he is the best to look at for me but if they all were gone tomorrow I wouldn't care a bit.

Please EET do not wish him on my Elizabeth... I wouldn't even suggest him for Sam.

Looks like Matt is gaining some steam!

I like all three characters just fine.

But Johnny has the most potential, and I'm LOVING him with Maxie. For me he's the most interesting and the writers actually include him in scenes so....that's why I chose him.

With Ethan, I can definitely understand why people don't like him. But I think he has a lot of potential if he turns out to be Robert's son. He's growing on me little by little. So, I don't hate him.

I absolutely ADORE Jason Cook, I was a huge Shelle fan when he was on Days. So I was so excited when he came to GH. But they don't use him, and they have him stuck in a rut and haven't really given him something to work with. But of the few times they use him....like the dynamic between him and his brother...he's fine.

You cant even give me too much grief after Team Lizard threw up the idea of Raynor and Sam - literally AND figurative threw up LOL. Oh and after all the bashing, there wasnt even any kind of flirting or whatever between the two LOL

So Viva Etzard! LOL

Hey that was Luke and Luke alone... he took a RUMOR of Sam flirting with Rayner to get out of trouble and ran with it.

Luke taking a Sam rumor and running with it - GET OUT! LOL ALthough I seem to remember Sueboo and a few others jogging on the track right beside him.

I just dont know what they do with Ethan. We talk about actors on ABC that chew scenery but he ACTUALLY chews scenery (I thought I saw him taking a few bites of Alexis' wallet before he returned it LOL)

Oh and I have to say I remember when I started watching GH, back in the day, being absolutely crazy about Luke, but now PFFFT. The actor keeps taking crazy vacations that disrupt the show, he didnt stand by Genie, but now he is taking a stand with MB and SB and he is pushing for Ethan to be on screen. Meanwhile, Luke cheats on Tracy, is drunk all the time, bashes Lucky for wanting his dad to like him (what a horrible trait in a son) and leaves Lulu twisting in the wind for the likes of a two bit con-man. I am getting to the point where I am starting to seriously dislike Luke (not Lizard loathing levels but just shy of kill kate levels) Hey how about the new Luke and Laura - Luke and Lizard....then I could ff the whole lot.

I chose Matt because I loved Brandan Barash on Gilmore Girls and think he should leave daytime for something else.

And Matt pulls into the lead... interesting. I wonder if it has more to do with the doctor element?

Member since:

Although I really wouldn't miss any of them, Matt has a few things going for him. One, he is great as Patrick's brother. Two, he is a doctor (and they need more of them). Three, if they get Claire Coffee back, he and Nadine would be great together.

That said, my first choice would also have been Spinelli.

Matt in the lead? Is that because we never see him so we have less of a reason to dislike him?

Oh, and I have done no jogging on any track. I don't think my physical therapist would condone that. Maybe after I get the casts off?

FINALLY! Something with Matt in it!! Jason Cook is the most wasted talent on this show. He and Storms still have tons of chemistry, hello did you not see the Robin Dream episode before Thanksgiving? Spixie fans like to pretend there's no chemistry there.
It's obvious that the blame falls on GH's writing, and not the actors. Perfect example with Mary Beth & Steve - they were great on Days, sucked on GH, great back on Days.
Once GH hires some decent writers, Jirsten will light it up. They're given one scene every six months... not fair to compare them with JoMax.
I only watch this disaster of a soap to see Jason Cook... and I'm all for us starting a new poll to see who else thinks he and Storms are better off at Days.

The only one I don't like is Johnny - and that's mainly due to the fact he's a "mobular" character.

Jason Cook is wasted on this show. He gets no airtime when he is hot and Teethan and Spinelli are not. Guza is insane to make Spinelli a leading romantic man sucking up all this airtime. He should be a sidekick. Maxie belongs with Matt.

Johnny is definitely my pick! I love him and Maxie together.

Now GH LOVER there you go using common sense. You know Guza don't play that. Not when he can pair him up with someone completely inappropriate and creepy. Frons don't play that makin' love past 28 thing....lol. By the way Ethan could be the love child of Robert and Luke,and it wouldn't make him more interesting to me. Is this the guy we lost Ric Hearst for? For Shame Fruza Destruction Machine,For Shame!!!

Spinelli would be my pick, but out of these 3 - I would choose Matt (in low doses). I don't think I like Johnny or Ethan that much since they are on all the time.

Jason Cook is a very talented actor, it's such a shame that he gets hardly any screen time, although saying that even with the miniscule amount of airtime he's had you can still see if his character was developed he really could be a leading male, the writers of this show really have no idea what they are doing and i think it's really egotistical of them to think they have the right to ignore the fact that the fans AND the actors are unhappy with the way things are.

I love Johnny, but I think that we can all (or at least the vast majority here) agree on one point...Ethan? Not so much.

It's kinda sad...only not.

My vote for Matt had nothing to do with the fact hes a doctor it has everything to do with the fact that the other two suck worse than him. He's just boring but he doesnt suck.

It was between Johnny and Matt. Then I narrowed it down to M&M vs. JoMax. I love my JoMax. So, I picked Johnny.

Matt: Like him! He's a doctor. He's Patrick's little bro and he's got a ton of potential if the writers actually gave him something to do.

Ethan: Hate him!

Johnny: Tolerate him! As far as mobsters go, he's as good as it gets.

Spinelli: Over him! Love bradford anderson, but I can't watch this character lately. His s/l has turned into one really bad dream sequence.

Sticking with my Ethan pick. I don't know what it is about him, he just does it for me, what can I say...
