Oh, Twitter was a BLAZIN' last night, wubbers! Tweets all over in support of Greg Vaughan. Many fans were excited to hear JJ is coming back to play Lucky but many more seemed to be upset that Greg is leaving a role he'd come to own in the past years. Will this be a boon or a backlash? Fans are already pissed about so many things, will this just drive some of the newer fans away? After all, JJ left the role in 1999. Ten long years ago. That's enough time for a whole new generation of GHers.
CoStars of Greg's are tweeting their support. Here's a few that went out last night:
@1SteveBurton: God bless Greg V and his family. Sucks! He will be missed.
@Tyler2929: Everyone give GV your blessings please. He gave Lucky justice while he was ther
@DerkCheetwood: Our thoughts are with Greg V and family he will be missed by all.
@lisalocicerogh @greg_vaughan Greg, you'll do great wherever you go.. But I will miss your smiling face terribly
@brandonbarash: I'm deeply saddened by this news, @greg_vaughan. Not gonna be the same without you next door. Your star will shine wherever it lands.
@nancyleegrahn: Heartbroken about Greg. However, this is a guy who worked constantly before GH and will continue you to do the same after GH. He is an amazing gentleman, a dedicated father, a committed and talented actor who is loved and adored by his cast. He will be fine!
@TRACYSELF: WubsNet IMO JJ is Lucky the boy while GV is lucky the man, it doesn't really matter TPTB will ruin it & not use anyone to full potential!
@FrankStrovel: WubsNet Woke up this morning and dreamt I'd died and a younger guy replaced me.
@Janicedotkay: WubsNet wonder how jj's lucky will look w/jmb's lulu. he still looks so young! feel bad for gv. gh did this b4. remember stephen martines?
@RockGypsy@WubsNet On the Lucky switch. Guza needs to remember that lightning doesn't always strike twice and it wasn't the actor it was the material
@joyamberbrown: @WubsNet I heard this is TG's last hurrah as Luke. Makes sense the timing with JJ's return if it is only for six months like some are saying
That's an interesting concept. LOL... we all know TG wanted Ethan as Luke's kid, since "Luke" basically hates "Lucky"...how will THAT play out!? Lucky will still be a cop. How will they rewrite all that animosity over the years with the characters? Goodness. The key is and always will be the WRITING! That's probably why there's a nu-Cassadine surge. Bring on a baddie they can both fight.
I would also like to say how many people have been saying that Greg V is one of the nicest guys at fan events. A lot of you have photos with him and stories to tell. It's going to be a hell of a ride. As I've said all month, the dang spoilers have been all over. The Cassadine pull-backs-- was that all getting ready for this? Because although Greg found out MONDAY and JJ is back THURSDAY you know talks were going on way before now. I also still say Nathan Parson's days are numbered unless they can get he and JJ to click as bros.
Wonder about the future of Liason? For sure they are going to go with L&L2 to see if the "permanent lock" will still fit between Becky and JJ. LuSam fans? What do you think? JJ with KeMo? hmmmmm. This promises to change many dynamics, doesn't it?
Given this week, with all the outs on AMC, the rumor of OLTL's demise--casting shifts all over, it's clear ABC is scrambling to save what it has. Either that or it wants soaps to go out with a lot of noise!
