    General Hospital Still Looking for Dante.

    Thursday, April 23 2009


    Where's their son? (Soaps.com)
    General Hospital fans have been teased into a frenzy about the yet-to-be-introduced character of Dante Falconeri. Was Tom Pelphrey (ex-JB Randall on Guiding Light really tapped for the role? Did former Y&R hottie David Lago (ex-Raul Guitierrez) land the role? (That particular rumor was definitely put to rest with news of him reprising his Y&R role.)


    After months of speculation Soaps.com can give only one definitive answer: the casting call has been reactivated! The lucky young actor needs to be charming and flirtatious with an abundance of arrogance. (With Sonny Corinthos as Dante's biological father, is any of this a surprise? If only they would require some dimples!) What's more, Soaps.com can report that the audition script involves Dante's angst over sleeping with someone in Sonny's realm.

    With Sonny having a baby with Claudia, Michael waking up, Morgan and Kristina adding a few years to their age and hopefully soon the apperance of Dante, it looks as if there's a new power family in town.

    Re David Lago - GH dropped the ball on this guy. I guess that is why Y&R has high ratings.

    I think they should get Jason Cerbone, the guy who played Jackie Jr. on The Sopranos.

    I know it's not going to happen but Tom Pelphrey would be excellent as Dante. Anyone who watched him as Johnathan Randall on Guiding Light knows he's got the charm, the looks, and the intensity to play Sonny Corinthos's son.

    Dear writer's when, will Oliver ever tell Sonny, the truth about them having a son together. Enough already Oliver should tell him asap, never mind taking care, of everyone's business. What is she waiting for. If Sonny knew that they had a child, together he would have, loved that fact, yes he would have been, mad at Kate for keeping the secret. Yet he would have wanted, his son in his life. Oliver is making me sick really, for lieing to Sonny, afterall these year's. She should have been a women, about it for one, yes she know's that he lead'sa dangerous life, thus alway's have, but it's time for the truth to come out, and we can't wait to see what happen's, when it doe's their son need's to, get to know his dad. Writer's please bring it on. This will make for a interesting story, especially with Morgan and Michael and Alex's daughter. Please just hire some one now thank's. Oliver is a good actress, that is for sure.
    Oh Sonny is the man, all he has to do is look at some women, and right away we have little Sonny's, all over the plasce. Ps writer's please let Jason be alright, after Jerry's car blew up. I hope that Sam and Jason, will be back together as a married couple this time round. Thus they are both great together, please put Lis and Lucky, back together as a married couple, with their children because, they really work as a power couple. Sam and Jason are a powerful couple, that is for sure, so please let them, have a life together. Thus Spinilli and Maxie, are wonderful as a couple. Plus Luck's wife, Tracy is very talented, and her man, had better keep, his eye's on her because that son of his sure is.

    Tom Pelphrey would be an AMAZING addition to the GH cast! The man completely BROUGHT.IT.ON when he was Guiding Light! He caused havoc, he toyed with his family's minds...but most importantly he managed to make viewers like me fall for his story with Tammy! I mean seriously, their chemistry was so good, you couldn't help but throw out the fact they were half-distant cousins.

    Most importantly, Tom played a character that was very much grounded with the same kind of history as Dante. While Dante may not be part of a fictional royal monarchy...he's one of the Mob King's very own!

    Honestly, I can't imagine anyone really going toe to toe in a combustive way than Tom. Also, he won an Emmy for it.

    PC needs another hellion that isn't quite a total villain but a guy you love to hate...Tom could definitely give Sonny a run for his money!

    Well if Tom is shooting limited scenes, I can see it happening. Shooting doesn't begin until June for a July slated appearance. GL hasn't lived up to much of the spark since Tom left the show and the Jonathan character was written off so badly.

    Whoever gets the coveted role of Dante is in for the time of there life!!! What an experience and what fun to play Sonny Corinthos's son.....

    Jason and Elizabeth no matter what anyone says....they need to get back together the best love story by far.......
