Viewers watching the Monday, November 14, episode of General Hospital noticed that Adam Huss once again stepped in for Marcus Coloma as Nikolas. The casting not only caught the attention of fans, it caused a reaction from one of Nik’s former portrayers…

Tyler Christopher, who created the Port Charles role in 1996, posted an Instagram story in response to the casting report and stated, “I’m available if Marcus Coloma needs a day off… just sayin’.”

One thing is for sure, Christopher has plenty of experience in the role — one he played for nearly 20 years — having last appeared in June 2016.
