Hotter Than Hot Jax Renews Contract
Jax fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Jasper Jax, played by the sexy steamy Ingo Rademacher, reached a last minute deal with ABC executives. With all the gossip to the contrary, one of General Hospital’s best hotties is staying. A short to the point message from Ingo’s official website confirmed the news. “Yup it is official,” the statement read. “Ingo is staying on the show for another year!”
The announcement silences talk that the actor planned to exit the show. The first hint that actor might want to leave his fictional life in Port Charles came in September 2004 when Rademacher told Australian publication The Sunday Mail that he was "burnt out" and wasn't sure if he wanted to remain in the United States.
Ingo made his debut on General Hospital in 1996 playing the role of Jax and had previously dismissed statements that he was considering leaving.
Whew, that was a close one. I think our fans will all agree that ABC and GH is very happy he's staying around, at least for now.
