GH: Sebastian Roché and Ingo Rademacher Back As Jerry & Jax

Sebastian Roché and Ingo Rademacher return to General Hospital as Jerry & Jax. Roché made an surprising appearance on August 3rd raising many questions. The one question I have is he the one behind Robin's faked death and kidnapping ti Switzerland? Hmmm you never know with Jerry, he is always up to no good.

Ingo Rademacher was last seen on GH back in January when we learned he really did not perish in the explosion. But the GH heart-throb disappeared quicker than he arrived. Now news has broke that Jax will be back on the scene this August.

The Roché and Rademacher teased fans on Twitter the other day with this collage of photos of the two of them relaxing outside on a cool looking patio tweeting:

@IngoRademacher tweet said, “Me and me bro. Aka. The jacks brothers,” while @sebroche read, ”The irreplaceable Jacks brothers take Mammoth !”

I will say this; Jen Lilley played the heck out of the role of Maxie making it her own. Well done Jen, you will be missed.

SayWhatNews: If you don’t mind I would like to start at the beginning for our readers who might not know your background? Alicia you were born and raised in South Florida. Do have any siblings?

Alicia: I have 3 sisters! We are all very close and very different! I have a very tight knit family and feel that family is the most important thing! I grew up in South Florida and ALWAYS knew I wanted to act! So I started doing plays in high school and that lead to me getting the acting "bug"! I then starting modeling and doing some commercials in Miami, meeting my manager, and that lead to the big move to NY where I booked AMC! It did not happen overnight! Years of hard work and auditions and acting classes! My family supported me the whole time-which was so important.

GH: Kassie DePavia Finally Returns to Port Charles

Finally, Blair Kramer (Kassie DePavia) will be returning to General Hospital. The former One Life to Live star/character will be reprising her role after a shocking short stint in Port Charles in March of 2012. Fans were shocked to learn that DePavia had not been offered a contract on GH and that she was only there to introduce her character's daughter Star Manning to GH fans.

The news just was recently confirmed by ABC soap's executive producer, Frank Valentini, who made the announcement on Twitter:

"You're hearing it here first, Kassie DePaiva's Blair will visit GH this summer!"

Now listen up ABC/GH, DePaiva deserves a contract. You dropped the ball not having Blair by Starr's side during Sonny's trial when he was accused of murdering Cole and Hope; Starr needed her mother. Kassie DePaiva would add to the great cast. Her character would certainly mixed things up a bit.


GH: Comings & Goings

Daytime Vet Richard Steinmetz will be joining GH. Steinmetz who is best known for his role as Martin on "Passions" and as Jeff on "Loving", has been cast in a brand new role for the series. Executive Producer Frank Valentini told Soap Opera Digest, "Richard is playing the son of a former character who will have a big story with Sonny [Maurice Benard]."

His air date has not yet been released.

Finola Hughes is staying in Port Charles. The actress who has been playing Anna Devine off and on since 1985 has been placed on contract. So it looks like Anna will be the new police commissioner for a while. Hopefully she will be around long enough to learn her daughter Robin is still alive and has been kidnapped.

Jason Cook is out as Matt. I think we all saw this coming. Cook's character over the past several months has not had a lot of screen time. So it looks like Maxie's hubby will be remaining in jail for the murder of Lisa Niles.


GH: Kirsten Storms In Talks to Return to GH

Looks like Kirsten Storms could be headed back to the set of GH to reclaim her role as Maxie Jones sometime in the near future.

Soap Opera Digest reports that Storms "is in talks to return to the show."

Storms health issues were revealed during the reality show Dirty Soap. During an episode it was announced that Storms was diagnosed with endometriosis which caused the actress to leave her role on General Hospital. Storms has been gone since September and the role has been played by Jen Lilley.

In January, Storms was suppose to return to GH but the actress suffered a setback.


General Hospital Gets Time Slot Change in the Fall

General Hospital gets a new time slot for this coming Fall. The new time change was brought about by the cancellation of the Revolution and the addition of Katie Couric's new talk show.

ABC has confirmed that General Hospital will be airing in a new timeslot in most television markets starting this fall via Twitter:

"Hey GHers! We're letting you know first -- beginning MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 10th, we're moving into our new time slot at 2ET | 1PT/CT,".

If you remember, The Revolution debuted in January 2012 as a "replacement" for One Life to Live, which angered fans causing them to rally together created petitions to boycott the show. Well, since the premiere of the show, its ratings have been disappointing.

The change begins on September 10.
