Fans can stop tweeting about saving Rob Derringer‘s job at General Hospital. The role of Agent Kyle Sloane has been recast with As The World Turns and Hollywood Heights alumGrayson McCouch.
Sloane is a former trainee of Port Charles Police Commissioner Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) from her WSB days. He arrived in Port Charles late in 2014 to investigate his ex-mentor for illegally detaining international criminal Cesar Faison (Anders Hove).
On New Year’s Eve, an emotional Anna tracked a shirtless Sloane down at his hotel suite for an intense encounter. Could Port Charles’ favorite lady cop be in for a hot, new romance in 2015?
Well, I’m not sure what the issue was with Robb Derringer (I had assumed the role was just a short-term one), but I have to say I’m excited for Grayson McCouch to be around. I’ve always liked him, and it’s nice to have the show invest a well-known soap actor in a role that is, at least so far, both sane and law-abiding, even if he is kind of a jerk at times.
I always liked Grayson on AW and ATWT. It will be nice to see him again. I thought Rob Derringer was just fine, however.
As for Sloane, I’m not so sure he is law-abiding. I wondered today if he is working for Fluke. His Inspector Javert persona is a bit much.
I am actually disappointed in this; I like Rob Derringer very much. The actor who they should have cast in the role is Michael Park (: Then Sloane could have gotten into Ava’s orbit…. (;
I agree though that Sloane is most likely a bad guy – they have to have him be someone worse to get Anna off the hook, and to make Duke the better guy for her ):
I haven’t seen yesterday’s episode yet, so I don’t know if there was some development, but it wouldn’t surprise me of course if Sloane is actually a bad guy. I was being optimistic that he was just a hard-ass.
