Various sources are reporting that Grayson McCouch is out at General Hospital and Robb Derringer will reprise the role of Agent Kyle Sloane. According to the spoilery rumors on Daytime Confidential, McCouch declined to return to the recurring role because of the storyline, specifically [SPOILER ALERT!] the powers that be are apparently planning to kill Sloane and take Anna’s character in an entirely different direction than the romance Carlivati seemed to be exploring for her and Sloane.
A couple of other tidbits that are worth mentioning but not really worth another thread, also from DC:
B&B is looking to cast a 25-28 year old white male to play a bisexual character who works in the fashion industry.
DAYS has cast Kyler Pettis as a SORASed Theo. (I tried to include a photo but it doesn’t seem to be working.)

I liked both Sloanes, even though they were very different from one another. What really strikes me as odd about this is why they are even bringing back the character. I am curious about the “new direction” they will be taking Anna.
I’ve never considered B&B to be especially progressive, but they certainly have upped their game as of late. I imagine this new character will have a very specific purpose and it will be interesting to see what exactly that is.August 12, 2015 at 7:10 pm #429644
I’m curious about the “new direction” too! Finola Hughes can do no wrong so the fact that they’re giving her anything to do is music to my ears. Unless of course they decide to pair her with Sonny. That would probably be a bad idea haha.

Fwiw I hit “quote” and I could see the photo. Nice to see more GLBT representation on a soap especially one like B&B!August 12, 2015 at 7:23 pm #429646
I should also add that DC has a ‘wishful casting’ item on sending McCouch to B&B opposite KKL. I think that’s a great idea! KKL has chemistry with everyone and is in desperate need of something to do over there, and I can see GMc fitting in very well at B&B.

I agree with would be fun to see Grayson McCouch with KKL on B&B!
I can’t imagine what the new direction for Anna is, but I’m sure Finola Hughes will be great with it. Yeah, I just hope it’s not a weird, ill-conceived pairing. Sonny would be bad, but Julian would be worse. Patrick would also be gross.
And thanks, tennisfreak. I’m glad the photo is there in some capacity.
