I have been waiting for someone to post about these, but no one has yet, so I'm reposting this from my board for you guys here.

Mark Hapka who played Johnny at age 15 two years ago during the Colleen storyline and plays Zack in the GHOST WHISPERER webisodes will be playing Nathan Jannings, Pete and Melissa's son (they had a son???) who will be a first year intern and is the romantic interest for Melanie.
And Mia's baby daddy, Chad, will be bowing next month as well in the form of Casey Deidrick. Casey did a stint on 90210. Both actors are 22 and debut next month.

I don't mind this at all, but for goodness sake, bring in some damn women to even out all these men.

Much prefers sweevil, snarky EJ over Father Figure Fucktard Eejiot.

Is it me...or does Mia's baby daddy look like Nick with spikey hair?

But I'm glad they are finally giving Melanie a love interest her OWN AGE.

We could use more women on the show.

I know. I've been able to tolerate her in small doses, in the comic relief format, when she is not supposed to be a love interest for much older men. This new guy is cute and looks age-appropriate, so if he can at least semi-act and they have chemistry, I will give them a shot. I did like Melanie with Nick so it's not impossible for me to like her with a man, after all.

I like Melanie's chemistry with Brady, but I'm willing to give this a shot. I don't like the rewrite of history they did, but it isn't the first time we've been subjected to a rewrite of something. (Oh hi EJ and Stephanie, race-car drivers!!)

Can we get some more women on this show? Holy cow!
I hope Mel and this new guy have chemistry...but I have to say that I am happy because I remember Johnny in the daydram and he was pretty damn good looking!

Thanks for sharing!

LoL, this thread title reminds me of that "Two New Hunks" SOW article from 1999 when they were introducing the "new" Phillip and Shawn, played by Brandon Tyler and Jason Cook. They were standing next to each other wearing wifebeaters and Cook looked like a scrawny pre-teen next to Brandon Tyler.

Anyway, are those different guys in each picture? They look like twins.

I can only assume Zach is a one time character on GW. He's definitely not a regular. I just finished watching three eps of GW and he's not a character now. I guess it was a guest stint. I have real issues if they make Mia's ex 22 years old. That's statutory rape and that's not cool.

Edit ~ he was apparently on the ONLINE version of a wannabe GW spin off and appeared in two early eps of the actual show. I am of the mind that online webisodes aren't actually shows so he's a newbie to acting. I just hope he really can act.

The first guy is pretty cute. I just hope they can act. I can not stand the trend of pretty but talentless on tv.

So the plan is to throw on a whole bunch of younger men hoping that one will click?

After all... tomorrow is another day!

I already like the look of the actor playing Nathan Jannings. Hopefully the character is written as a bit of a bad boy despite his med school thing, just so he fits well with Melanie and also since they are making his father an ex-gang member. Will enjoy seeing Maggie get to interact with her grandson too.

Not sure about Mia's ex but I'll give him a chance.

Don't plan on getting too attached to either of these actors since they'll probably wind up on B&B or GH within 5 years anyway... ;)

I own you bitch.

More new characters! Yay. Well at least one is a Horton. They are both cute, I'll give them that, otherwise I'll suspend judgement as it plays out.

I knew I had read this here and had seen their pictures, too, but different pictures and I believe that Jason47 posted their ages, too, but I didn't remember which thread that was posted in. I think Jason had Nathan's portrayer at 27.

Just trying to be helpful.
