Chad Duell (Michael, GH)Chad Duell lands the role of Michael Corinthos, Jr.

A big announcement has come down from General Hospital. The role of Michael Corinthos Jr, currently played by Drew Garrett, is being recast.

In a statement, General Hospital says, "We are recasting the role of Michael Corinthos Jr., the son of Sonny and Carly, with actor Chad Duell (WIZARDS OF WAVERLY PLACE and SUITE LIFE ON DECK). His first airdate is Tuesday, April 20th. The continuing storyline will have viewers on the edge in the weeks leading up to May sweeps as Michael and his father frantically try to hide the truth that he murdered his stepmother Claudia."

This is the second time the role of Michael has been recast. The role was originated by Dylan Cash who played Michael from 2002 to 2008, ending on a rather unauspicious note as he wallowed away in a coma after being shot by mistake at the bequest of Claudia Zacchara who'd placed a hit on her soon to be husband, Sonny Corinthos. At the time, the show had chosen to age the character in another example of SORAS (Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome), and brought in Drew Garrett to replace Cash. Garrett started in 2009, and has gotten many accolades from fans regarding his performances.

It is not clear why General Hospital has decided to make yet another casting change. In regard to Garrett, the show states:

"We want to thank Drew Garrett for his time with GENERAL HOSPITAL and wish him well in all his future endeavors."

Soapdom echos those sentiments and wishes Garrett only the best. We likewise congratulate Deull on landing the role and welcome him to the hallowed halls of Port Charles.
