Is Jason Morgan alive and well and heading back to General Hospital? One Life To Live alum Josh Kelly, who played Cutter Wentworth on the defunct ABC soap, is joining the cast in an undisclosed contract role. According to Deadline, the character will impact the lives of Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco,) Dante Falconeri (Dom Zamprogna), and Britt Westbourne (Kelly Thiebaud), which sounds suspiciously like Jason Morgan, who was previously portrayed by Steve Burton on the soap opera.
Gregory Harrison makes another appearance as Gregory Chase. He’ll share scenes with Jophielle Love’s Violet on Thursday, May 19.
Stephanie Erb has reportedly wrapped up her run as Alexis Davis. Erb temporarily replaced Nancy Lee Grahn, while she was recovering from back surgery.

Good news for Lucas Horton fans. Bryan R. Dattilo is returning to Days of our Lives for his next story arc. Look for Lucas to resurface in Salem on Tuesday, May 17.

Despite having recently undergone surgery for a broken ankle, Katherine Kelly Lang won’t miss any time on-air as The Bold and the Beautiful’s Brooke Logan. The actress took to Twitter to reveal that she’s back on set and plans to continue taping while she recovers.

Sam McMurray, who’s appeared on the primetime hits Breaking Bad, Friends, The King of Queens, and The Sopranos, has been cast as Dwight. The actor has a soap past, too, having played Phil on Edge of Night and Wes on Ryan’s Hope. He’ll start airing later this month.
