TVLine Items: GH Adds AMC Vet, Dead Prince Cast on The Royals and More

James Patrick Stuart is returning to daytime TV.

The former All My Children star has joined ABC’s General Hospital and is set to debut as early as July, Soap Opera Digest reports, though no character info has been disclosed as of yet.

Patrick Stuart last appeared on the now-defunct AMC as Will Cortlandt in 1992, and has since then kept busy with guest spots on myriad shows including The Closer, How to Get Away With Murder, 2 Broke Girls and Rosewood.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* Max Brown (The Tudors) has been cast as on E!’s The Royals as Prince Robert, who was presumably dead after a plane crash in the first season, our sister site Deadline reports.

* Stand Up to Cancer will broadcast its fifth fundraising special live from Los Angeles on Friday, Sept. 9, simultaneously on CBS, NBC, FOX, and ABC. Bradley Cooper is among this year’s executive producers.

* Better Things, Louis C.K. and Pamela Aldon’s semi-autobiographical comedy series based on the latter’s life, is set to premiere Thursday, Sept. 8 on FX, per Deadline.

    Didn’t know JPS had a role on 2BG.

  2. Dean says:

    Uh Supernatural? Leviathan Leader Dick Roman? Then again considering all the innuendo jokes made it would be a role to forget.

    Another newbie on GH? That cast is to big already.

  4. GH Fan from WAY back says:

    Nothing against Mr Stuart but GH has WAY too big of a cast already. PLEASE, PLEASE write for the great cast you have and quit adding newbies that take time away from the characters we love and WANT to see!!!

    Naomi and Jen Clark’s absentee father on 90210 if anyone remembers. :D

    Took me a minute to remember Will Cortland. Then I remembered Crowbarred Will Cortland by Janet “From Another Planet” Green. I have no problem with this casting if its a recast for an existing character
