A couple of GENERAL HOSPITAL stars are suggesting that former DAYS OF OUR LIVES actor Billy Flynn would make a good recast for the role of Morgan Corinthos, and one of them is the character’s former portrayer, Bryan Craig! The whole thing kicked off on Twitter when Flynn, who recently left the role of Chad DiMera on DAYS, remarked that he’d stand in line for the stars attending an upcoming GH fan event. One of the attendees, William deVry (Juilan), remarked: “Hey, Billy, you would make a good Morgan should he ever appear again. I hear Bryan Craig is otherwise booked. Ha!” To which Flynn replied: “I do believe I would give it my best shot. Ha ha! That escalated quickly from getting a few autographs. My buddy Ken worked with Bryan on his new show. He’s great.”
After vacating the role of Morgan, Craig returned for a cameo appearance in one episode back in January of 2018, but the actor has been keeping extremely busy since leaving daytime with roles in the CW military drama VALOR, the film Ride, and his upcoming primetime sudser GRAND HOTEL. Morgan’s body was never actually found, but if GH wanted to bring him back, they’d naturally have to recast the role. And Craig got mixed up in the fun Twitter exchange to offer his endorsement to Flynn! “You’d be a great Morgan,” he replied. “Thanks for the kind words, brother.”
Flynn was flattered, but now realized that the three of them had stirred up a hornets nest with excited fans jumping all over the idea. “Thanks Bryan,” he responded. “Not sure how one could follow what you did, though. This, on the other hand, is gonna escalate quickly now. Ha ha ha! Congrats on everything, man.”
For his part, Craig knew exactly what he’d started. “Yeah, prepare for the copy and paste of this conversation in articles!” he teased. But how could we resist? It’s a great casting suggestion, and one we hope GH keeps in mind should they ever want to bring Morgan back from the dead!
