Looks like General Hospital altered some of its planned story course with the news out in this week’s Soap Opera Digest (on newsstands now) that Richard Steinmetz (Joe Jr.) has been let-go at the ABC soap and it’s storyline-dictated!

Steinmetz told SOD, “I’ve known for a little while. Frank Valentini (EP, General Hospital) told me that with the exit of Jason, they’re going in a different direction. Him leaving meant that they had to change some things around and I taped my last scenes a few weeks ago. I was pretty sad! I really did enjoy working there. A lot of people told me they were unhappy I was leaving, like Erik Valdez (Trey), my on-screen son, and Kelly Sullivan (Kate/Connie). It doesn’t change anything, but it makes me feel good. ”

The actor went on to say that his one regret was, “That I didn’t get to work with the character of Connie. What a friggin’ shame, man. Connie and Joe would have lit it up! It would have been a blast.”

So soapers, what do you think will go down that sets up Steinmetz’ exit? Are you sad to see Richard and Joe Jr. go? Let us know!

About damn time! He should've never been hired, he's beyond awful playing a villain! And I hated how they were trying to redeem the rapist!

I'm a bit sad instead, I like the character and the double personality thing of Kate could have give an explanation to a no-rape

Maybe it's only because I like the actor very much!

They need a bad guy. Let's face it, they have two redeemed rapists on the show already, whats one more? I liked that we saw Tracy and Monica more. It even got us to see them together, which is always entertaining. I would rather see them then Lulu and Dante and their swimming issues. I hate to see Joe Jr go, there really was a lotof potential.
