    Wow! that sucks, this young man showed the depth and emotions that went with the character. Not to mention he resemble Jason a little. GH seem to be recasting without a second thought to how its viewers feel. I love Jonathan Jackson, but I refer Greg Vaughn for the storyline happening now.

    the recast of Michael is a mistake. Drew Garrett is an excellent actor. I'd like to know WHY this is being done. Stupid move on the part of the PTB.

    I really hate it. I really liked Drew Garrett. I was a little unsure at first; but, he fit right in and did an awesome job as Michael. I thought he resembled Jason ALOT!!

    Drew Garrett was doing a GREAT job as Michael. Don't see why they had to recast him!

    Awww! No! I am going to be so sad! I loved Drew Garrett! He was doing so well. He was a fantastic actor! I think this is so wrong, nothing against Chad Duell. I will watch him first before making a judgement.

    I think this is so weird and just plain wrong. I am going to miss Drew, he was perfect. He had the right attitude and played everything from waking up from the coma so well. He gave the perfect mix of Carly and AJ plus the attitude of being Sonny's kid. His brother/sister relationship with Kristina is nice too, very sweet. I want more explanation! No thought to the audience... don't get me wrong love Jonathan Jackson but still getting used to him as Lucky since its not Greg Vaugh
