What does this mean for everyone's favorite Aussie corporate raider over on ABC? Check out what Rademacher had to say about his GH future in the TV Insider excerpt below:

You recently moved back to Southern California after several years in Hawaii. Were you thinking GH might want you back full-time as Jax?

Not at all. I made a brief return there last March, but then Sonny had Jax deported, so that was that! Our move back to California had everything to do with my wife, Ehiku. She has a clothing line and really wanted to be close to her factory, so we packed up the kids and came to the mainland, not even sure how long we’d stay. So, no, I wasn’t even thinking about a future at GH. I guess Jax won’t be showing up there anytime soon—or, if he does, he won’t look like me!
