General Hospital News: Austin To The Rescue! Welcome Back, Roger Howarth

The role of Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth), played by OLTL and GH’s, Roger Howarth, came to an abrupt and unexpected end when he was killed by Poet Charles super villain, Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

General Hospital news reports confirmed that although the character, Franco Baldwin, was indeed killed with no chance of resurrection, or was also confirmed that Baldwin’s portrayer, Roger Howarth, was exiting General Hospital only temporarily.

General Hospital rumors speculated the return of Howarth to possibly resurface the OLTL and GH character persona, Todd Manning. Those GH rumors were later squashed, revealing that TPTB did not want to bring Manning back on the canvas since his character was involved in the rape storyline surrounding Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell). Howarth also stepped into the role of Franco Baldwin after actor James Franco played the part which also involved a dark side, and alleged rape.

General Hospital spoilers finally reveal the identity of Howarth new role on GH, as his return debut aired on May 27th. Roger is now playing the role of a doctor named, Austin. So far he has delivered Maxie Jones’s (Kirsten Storms), baby in the woods. Austin seems much different than Franco. We don’t know much about him yet, but from the first impression he gave, there seems to be a lot more light, as opposed to the dark past Franco had.

How do you feel about Roger’s new role? Could there be a future for Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) with a man who looks just like her late husband?

General Hospital News: ABC Confirms Roger Howarth Will Not Return As Todd Manning; Here’s Why

General Hospital fans were devastated when a beloved character was recently killed. Fans worried they wouldn’t be seeing the iconic actor, Roger Howarth anymore on GH.

Soon after the shocking character death, General Hospital news confirmed Howarth would be retuning to the show despite the certainty of Franco Baldwin’s demise.

General Hospital rumors began swirling as a result of fans making claims that Howarth would return to GH as either Drew Cain (Billy Miller), or his former One Life To Live character, the infamous Todd Manning.

General Hospital news reports have confirmed that ABC shut down the possibility of bringing back Todd due to a character flaw. It was felt that it wasn’t a good idea to bring in another rapist to the daytime drama. Back on OLTL, Todd took part in a gang rape, and the victim was Marty Saybrooke (Susan Haskell). When James Franco played the role of Franco, aka, Robert Frank, he alluded to raping Sam Morgan (Kelly Monaco), but later admitted he never actually raped her. James Franco’s version of Franco also arranged for Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) to be raped in prison.

According to Daytime Confidential, a source states, “Howarth is definitely staying put but he won’t be back as Todd,” and continues on by saying. “They want a character with less controversy surrounding him so he can be paired with any of the women on the canvas.”

General Hospital Spoilers: Liz Is Furious, She Confronts Jason About Franco, Could This Be The End Of A Lifelong Friendship?

Elizabeth Webber (Rebecca Herbst) is trying everything in her power to hold on to Franco Baldwin (Roger Howarth). He has been diagnosed with a brain tumor which has the potential for him to become a danger to others as he was back before his tumor was treated.

Franco (then played by James Franco) terrorized the people of Port Charles, especially Sam (Kelly Monaco) and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Now that Franco is faced with such a horrible diagnosis, he fears that he will revert back to that dangerous man who once inflicted so much pain on others.

General Hospital spoilers indicate there is a long road ahead for Franco’s struggles with this brain tumor, including the risk of the wrath of Peter August (Wes Ramsey). Franco doesn’t want to become the man he once was and has asked Jason Morgan to kill him if ever he became a danger to his family and others. Sam spilled the tea RO Liz, letting her in on Franco’s request. Not only was Liz furious that Franco would ask Jason to do such a thing, and without discussing the matter, she is furious with Jason for his response.

General Hospital previews show Elizabeth tracking down Jason to confront him, expressing her anger, and demanding answers. Liz and Jason are former lovers and share a child, Jake Webber. She has always held Jason in high regard, but this time she doesn’t think he’s so great. Could Jason’s agreement with Franco be the end of a life long friendship and mutual respect between Elizabeth and Jason?

Betsy Franco Returns to General Hospital!

The newest word out on the street is that during Franco’s relapse into being a psycho freak, his adoptive mom will be back in the picture. Illegally adopted, Franco was raised by Elizabeth Frank, aka Karen Anderson and believe her to be his mother. He most recently discovered that he isn’t a Quartermaine, and that his parents are actually Scott Baldwin and Heather Webber. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree because Franco may be just as, if not more, crazy than Heather.

General Hospital rumors have be floating around that Betsy Franco will be returning to General Hospital to reprise her role as the woman who raised Franco… whether she is going by Elizabeth Frank, or Karen Anderson, we shall see which direction her return will take this character.

Fake Luke Could Be Who?!

As this story line involving Luke Spencer (or someone who looks like Luke actually) is unfolding, many speculations have been made as to who the impostor or Fluke, if you will, could possibly be. We have heard over and over the endless possibilities including Bill Eckert, (Luke’s cousin), Jerry Jacks, Frank Smith, Johnny Zacchara, Anthony Zacchara, and so on. Recently, a new and fresh idea was brought to light after an episode of General Hospital that aired last week.

Jordan (the DEA agent), was talking to Julian Jerome at the gallery. Prying him for information, she questioned him about their “real boss”. Jordan let Julian know that she wanted to know who they are taking orders for and if he didn’t tell her, then she wouldn’t do her part in the organization. Julian shot down her request and warned her that if she knew who the “real boss” was, then she would be putting a lot at stake. He even warned her that she would be risking her own son TJ’s life. Jordan (being that she is undercover and knows the real risks) told Julian she was willing to take that chance. In their conversation she made a comment about how their boss was like the Wizard of Oz. He is there but no one ever really knows his true identity.

With that out on the table, fans have been picking their brains trying to figure out who Fluke really is. Some suggest that Jordan and Julian’s conversation was the writer’s way of giving fans a hint. How could we forget one of the most psychotic and memorable villains of all? After all, for must of us, he is still pretty fresh in our minds. How could we forget about FRANCO? Now, there is no solid information, again, this is just another speculation to the unraveling saga of the Fluke/mob boss story. In real life, James Franco played the Wizard in his movie, Oz the Great and Powerful starring Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, Zach Braff, and more. Some fans have tried to put pieces together with every single villain that ever crossed paths with the residents of Port Charles. Franco happens to be the latest.

Rumors in the recent past suggested that Frank Valentini wanted Franco to make another cameo appearance at some point. Other character related rumors suggested that Franco isn’t who he seems to be… that being said, this theory could be a viable possibility

What do you think? Could Franco make a comeback? Is Fluke really Franco? Comment below to let us know if you think James Franco could return and if you think Fluke could really be Franco.

SHARE if you think fans have finally solved the mystery.

Ron Carlivati Wants James Franco Back!

There has been recent rumors that General Hospital’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati wants James Franco back! It has been said that Carlivati has told Showbiz411 Writer, Roger Friedman, that he is seeking out James Franco for one more stint on the ABC soap, General Hospital. Carlivati wants Franco back on the set, but it would be a little different this time, perhaps to tie up some loose ends with the story. James would be playing himself, and confronting the current “Franco” character, played by Roger Howarth.

James Franco originated the role of Robert Frank, aka “Franco” in November of 2009. He reeked havoc on the residents of Port Charles, terrorizing anyone that had to do with his obsession, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Caught in the crossfire were victims such as Samantha McCall Morgan, Carly Corinthos Jacks, Josslyn Jacks, Michael Corinthos Jr., Lulu Spencer, just to name a few.

General Hospital Blog is looking forward to those involved making this a reality. We would love to see James Franco back at GH!

James Franco Returning to General Hospital?

The man who wears many hats, including gracing us with his presence as Robert Frank (Franco) on General Hospital has sent out a very interesting Facebook message. In his message he thanked all his friends at General Hospital for their support. Then he proceeded to tell fans to wait and see what happens.

Judging from his post, and the recent spoiler claiming Franco becomes a new man after surgery really leads me to believe James Franco will be back on the set of GH. Please stay tuned, as I will post as soon as I hear further news and confirmation of this speculation.
