Feb. 17 is a few weeks from now and is "bringing GC together." I'll bet he's playing the Abbott cousin casting rumor that was swirling around. I do hope someone fills Michael Muhney's shoes; they are big ones to fill! I don't want Adam GONE as I really like the character.
The casting call for 'Andrew Abbott' was actually for the recast of Billy, they just couldn't tell people
The casting call for Andrew Abbot was put out way longer ago then when MM was fired. I find it hard to believe they were trying to replace Adam that far back and then sign MM to a new contract. Plus wait that long to fire MM.

Per a rep for the daytime drama series, who confirms the actor's joining, McKenna will be portraying the recurring role of Mark Harding and begins filming his scenes tomorrow, January 22 with a first airdate set for Monday, February 17.

"He'll appear during an exciting event that will bring several Genoa City residents together," says the rep.

Interesting ... the actor said "at least for a few episodes"
but the show's rep said "recurring role".

What is the "exciting event that will bring several Genoa City residents together"?

Hope it's Phyllis waking up,
her and Jack announcing their engagement,
putting a torpedo in Sharon's fantasy,
letting the Summer DNA fiasco come to a head.

Too bad, that would have really hurt MM to the core if he was replaced so readily. lol

Where did I read that during or before Paul was married to April, that he was messing with april's sister and her last name is harding and this could be YET ANOTHER mia kid. :shame:
Seems like he would be a lot older than this guy looks, but hey :shrug:

Biography Edit

Barbara Conway was the daughter of Dorothy and Wayne Stevens. She had one twin sister April Stevens.

In 1981, Paul Williams began the first step in his detective career by finding April's twin sister, Barbara, and reuniting her with her family. Paul then had an affair with Barbara, whom April had yet to meet.

In 1982, Barbara moved back to New York.

After visiting Genoa City, April and Heather Stevens returned to New York, much to Paul and Mary Williams' disappointment. They went to live with her sister Barbara who was rich and ended up financing Heather's education at a college in New York where her room mate Macy was murdered.


That would make "the baby" 32 years old... ish.

Good find, well, we'll see what happens now. I hope if he's yet another son of Paul's that he's not a psycho.

paul's wife being nuts has nothing to do with paul's genetic makeup, now his sister, that's another story. lol
His mother just happened to have a fixation on Ribs'n'kraut. :laugh:

I remember how Mary and Paul just begged Chris to have a baby, he'd never raised Heather, didn't even acknowledge her for the first months of her life. Then Isabella got pregnant with Paul's baby, yet he and Mary were not the most thrilled people, so I'm thinking hey as long as someone is having a baby for you after you raised all kinds of hell to have one be grateful, yet as soon as he could Paul shipped Ricky off to Cali, to his other grandparents, why didn't Mary take him and raise him. Stupid storyline from beginning to end. btw Shark if you're the new Adam with a big bust, you can feel yourself up and no one would report you to management. lol

LOL you got a point there.
I forgot about crazy Patty, paul just seems to hang with the nut jobs either thru family or associates. Maybe Ricky inherited some nuttiness not just thru his mother, but, his Aunt too. I rest my case. LOL
Couldn't stand that old bitch Mary bet Christine breathed a sign of relief when she was rid of that one.

I sighed a big relief when Mary and the bug was gone. Now here we are dealing with the untalented LLB again. If her daddy wasn't Bill Bell she would have gotten no where in acting.

I remember (here I go again) that's why Terry Lester left, was because it was becoming in his words "The Lauralee Bell Show". He knew that Daddy's Girl would take over and she's been a near enough perfect character ever since. I also remember Terry saying he begged the first Patty Lillibeth Stern not to leave, but she wanted to get married I think and have something to do with the health field be a nurse or something, I'm probably way off base. Terry was from a town about 70 miles away from me. Talk about someone being different from their character he was. I don't know what he died of but his family wanted it to remain private.

No wrath. lol you guys are nuts. LMAO
I had read way back when, that Terry had AIDS and his death was HIV related.
I just never warmed up to PB, just something about him, and I hate that he does the same facial grimaces all the time, the squint, the lip bite. Every time he does that, you KNOW Victor is about to hand him his ass on a platter. lol

Have you ever noticed as he's walking out of the door how he turns his head like he's looking down the hall, room, whatever, it drives me nuts. I want to ask "what are you looking at/for Jack?"

He's a good crier. That man can have me reaching for my Puff's when he goes on a jag. I think he's nice looking, needs to relax a little wear a dress shirt every now and again. Lose that suit and tie while your at home. Get a little jiggly with it U know.
Be glad when he lets John Abbott go to his reward and stay there and have him to pick up Cassie on his way back.
Talk about the friggin' undead......G City is zombie central..........
