    Soap Opera In-Depth and the GH Wubs site has announced that Julie Marie Berman has quit “General Hospital” and that, the role of Lulu is being recast.  

    What do you think about this news? will you miss JMB? Who should take-over the role?

    I for one put my vote out there for Erin Torpey to get this role, she could add layers that the LuLu character lacked before and turn her into a more mature character.  Also, Erin Hershey Presley would ROCK this character.

    I think that Geary, Genie Francis, JJ, and JMB ARE the Spencers.  plain and simple.  NO one else can play Lulu.

    I say kudos to JMB! She is at the point when it is now or never, so she jumping into the waters of not having job security. All the best to her. I agree that there were periods in her run that she had the case of the lazys, but overall she has made a great character and unless this recast has even an iota of the talent that JMB has, the recast will fail. And given who is running the soap and how it the mantra over there is aesthetics first (And if they can act, bonus!) I am expecting the worse.

    And advice, and I know this is gross troll behavior, but don’t touch your face again! It settled and you look good (you looked good before the work).

    Now who do we think should get this role? Are there any “name” actresses that would just be AMAZING in this role?

    You know we are family gdfl, but NO to all three. I think I have made my issues about Ashley Jones known (though she was a hoot on “True Blood”), so we won’t go there. I guess I was the only one indifferent to Lauren as Brittany of Y&R. I think she’s in school in real life now (what happens to most former soap stars). And while I love Jen, she is no Sarah Brown (the only one that I have ever let that kind of casting slide).

    GH has their work cut out for them, but I fear w/the current team we’ll get another Lindsey Morgan/Andrew Trischitta situation.

    I have a thought:

    Bree Williamson. She would be PERFECT.  But hell, as long as they don’t go and cast Farrah Fath we’ll all be happy.

    Martha Madison. Her and Kirsten Storms playing best friends would be a cute wink to the audience and she’s talented.

    I love you guys, but these suggestions are killing me lol. I guess for me, they can’t go w/a familiar face. A newcomer is the best route, but for the love of God the must be able to act!

    And on a related note, I have always felt, pre DID stories, that Kelly Sullivan would’ve made a good Lulu recast. She looks just like Genie and it would’ve gave her a chance to play a character that is closer to her real life age as oppose to playing older that she does with Connie/Kate. 

    ETA: Love Martha, OLTLfan, but add that to the bin of suggestions that has me going “what?” Plus, she already played Liz on the show (that was great casting there!).

    I’d hire an actress similar in age to Julie Marie Berman.

    I love when we’re recasting a role!  Especially one like Lulu, where we can basically throw any actress under 40 at the group and see if it sticks.

    I like the Martha Madison suggestion, since I absolutely love MM, even if she did play Liz temporarily.  I watched her in every one of those episodes.  I think Madison, Bree Williamson and Ashley Jones are all pretty good suggestions, but to me none of them quite seem to fit.  A newcomer might be the way to go, but really I hope first and foremost they make sure she has good chemistry with her screen partners.  Having somoene who works well with Laura, Luke, Dante and Maxie is, I think, even more important than the acting level, though of course that should also be great.  Of actors we know already, I would suggest Vail Bloom.  I think she has a great look for the part and she’d grow into the role well, and quickly.

    Can I also add: Please God no to Farah Fath!  PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!  Not a good fit for her.

    I am starting to think a newcomer would be the ideal way to go.   But I’d like to see somebody with far more range than JMB has.  Somebody that can play innocent too.

    This is a character in great need of being reinvented.

    Rylan is a great choice.  She’s actually a good actress.  This is definitely Y&R’s loss.
