    Nathan Parsons Joins the Cast of General Hospital.

    Wednesday, January 21 2009


    Does Luke have a new protege? (ABC)
    GH may be losing a lovable nurse, but they’re also gaining a new conman. Word is Nathan Parsons has joined the cast as Ethan and will start airing the week of January 26.

    Parsons’ first scenes will apparently involve Luke on the Haunted Star and later, the elder conman will school the new young punk at a bar. Of course they form a friendship of sorts and Luke soon realizes they might have more in common than their love for the grift.

    Certainly sounds intriguing! Soaps.com has to wonder if Ethan will end up being Sonny and Olivia’s son, or maybe a son Luke never knew he had? What are your thoughts?

    Not sure why Olivia/Sonny's son would think he could get away with an alias. Sooner or later he will run into Olivia. I would rather he had something to do with Luke or even Tracy.

    Let's have Olivia's son revealed to Sonny ASAP. If he's "bad," he can help out with the mob war!

    If Luke can't be a real father to Lucky and Lulu how can he be "a son Luke never had"??
    In the "old days" when Luke was Luke it was fun to watch him with his real son Lucky--what a good time the whole family had with their being "on the run" and--and back at home in Port Charles in the house Laura always dreamed of--Luke wanted the best for his family--but when TPTB rewrote history and had Luke decry his role as husband and father--well, the story lost its center and the series became amoral as did most of the characters--and unfortunately Luke became a caricature of the original character who grappled with moral issues.
    Still, the idea of Luke being Ethan's mentor is appealing--if we had the "real" Luke back rather than the tiresome, overblown caricature of Luke. Then there would be the possibility of a relationship the viewers could root for and become emotionally ivested in.

    Who is the lovable nurse that we are losing? Surely not Epiphany? Say it isn't so!

    Now that I reread this, Dante Falconeri is Sonny and Olivia's son. So he'd probably end up being Luke's never-before-mentioned son from a childhood love.

    I'd rather see Ethan be a son Luke never knew he had.

    SPOILER ALERT!!!

    Ethan may my Luke or Robert's son with Holly Suntan(Who was a con-artist)! She just said that she had an 'abortion', which, she was probably lying due to her history.

    Looks like Lucky and Lulu have another half-sibling.

    I think it would be more enjoyable if this Ethan person was the REAL Lucky and THAT'S WHY there is such a connection between him and Luke! There is NO connection to Lucky and Luke NOW (which is strange since they used to be SOOO close)(and no connection of THIS Lucky to the REAL Lucky so perhaps THIS ONE we've been seeing is an imposter and "Ethan" is the one that has been held by Helena all these years and has finally been released!!! Hey it's far fetched but it would be more enjoyable than this HORRIBLE Lucky character we have now!

    Oh MY GOODNESS, i love nathan parsons. He went to my school a while back. He graduated and went to USC but dropped out to pursue his acting career. he then wasn't getting any callbacks so he went in and had fun with an audition and it turns out that he didn't get the call back, but they made him a part and wrote him into the script of General Hospital! My sister has worked with him in shows before and I have met him, he is really nice and really cute!!
