‘General Hospital’ Spoilers: Leak Confirms Nikolas Cassadine Recast – CBS Actor Steps Into Role!

General Hospital spoilers show Nikolas Cassadine (formerly Tyler Christopher) is back to Port Charles! This news comes from our favorite reliable behind-the-scenes leaker. The leaker has confirmed lots of good stuff before including Laura’s return, the Kevin-Ryan swap, and lots more. This is a juicy leak and one that GH viewers suspected ever since we caught a glimpse of that Cassadine ring when Cassandra Pierce (Jessica Tuck) was kidnapped. Here’s what the leaker dropped.

CBS Actor Recast as Nikolas Cassadine on General Hospital

The General Hospital spoilers tied to the recast reveal that it’s a hunky actor from a CBS soap and is well-known. The actor reportedly has friends on set – one female and one male – from their time on the other soap opera. With this in mind, there are five possibilities from Bold and the Beautiful and Young and the Restless.

Here are the General Hospital spoilers details from this leak. The inside source says Nikolas is in Port Charles a few weeks before he reveals himself. Plastic surgery while on the run from his former troubles explains how he’s able to hide in plain sight. Laura Spencer (Genie Francis) is in town by then and shocked to learn her son is alive.

Sean Carrigan – Formerly Ben “Stitch” Rayburn on Y&R

Sean Carrigan played sexy surgeon Stitch on The Young and the Restless and has been gone a while from the CBS soap. He is a year younger than ex-Nikolas Cassadine actor Tyler Christopher, so he’s in the right age range. He’s also a bonafide soap hunk. Plus, Sean is pals with both Billy Miller (GH’s Drew Cain) and Elizabeth Hendrickson (GH’s Margaux Dawson) so he meets that part of the leak as well.

Robert Adamson – Formerly Noah Newman on Y&R

Robert Adamson’s Noah Newman was shipped out of the country on Y&R so he’s available. He’s quite a bit younger than Tyler or Sean, but still in the right range at 33 years old. However, with his baby face, he doesn’t seem like a solid choice to play the Cassadine prince, but you never know. He also knows Miller and Hendrickson from his YR days.

Michael Muhney – Formerly Adam Newman on Y&R

There are people that would have you believe Adam is resurrected on a daily basis so Muhney will be back to Y&R, but that has not happened and won’t. However, Michael Muhney likely made valuable contacts when he shot a guest spot on ABC’s hit The Good Doctor. He’s a very long shot, but you never know. He’s the right age and a hottie with a fan following.

Jacob Young – Formerly Rick Forrester on B&B

The Bold and the Beautiful pushed sexy Jacob Young to the sidelines when they shelved Rick Forrester and his wife Maya on the CBS soap. Of course, Jacob also played Lucky Spencer on GH back in the day so he might come back to reprise that role. Tethered to this leak is one that Lucky is back for a short arc around the same time that recast Nikolas reveals himself, so maybe…

Pierson Fode – Formerly Thomas Forrester on B&B

As the youngest of the five candidates on our list, Pierson Fode also seems like real long shot. But he’s undeniably gorgeous and left Bold and the Beautiful to pursue other opportunities. We rounded out our list with him based simply on knowing people at CBS soaps, being a soap hunk, and being available for work, but he’s too young to play Spencer Cassadine’s (Nicolas Bechtel) dad.

General Hospital Spoilers: Leaks on Nikolas Cassadine Recast

Nikolas interacts with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) who likely knew Nik wasn’t dead. The source says the network should confirm the recast in early October. New Nikolas will stick around a while, so that’s nice for Cassadine fans.
