After months of SPECULATION, Anthony Geary (Lucas Lorenzo Spencer, General Hospital) has signed on to stay in Port Chuck. YAY!
In yesterday's comments and today's SCOOP I mentioned an Australian breaking into the Haunted Star and getting caught by Luke (Anthony Geary). TV Guide has the exclusive casting news that Nathan Parsons has been cast as Ethan.
Playing the recurring role of Ethan, Parsons' first scenes take place on the Haunted Star, opposite multiple Daytime Emmy winner Anthony Geary (Luke). Later down the 'pike, just when Ethan thinks he has gotten away with some major grifting, he is blindsided by Luke at an out-of-town watering hole.

Totally forgot to talk about Tracy and Luke yesterday. While I would be all for a Tracy/Luke/Laura triangle I am not so sure I am liking the latest storyline for Jane and Tony.

We learned then that the Domincan is no longer your source for a quick end to your marriage. Now, I MAY be a little premature as the LATEST SPOILERS say that while Tracy tells Luke she's already been granted the divorce, it's a bluff and Luke SHOULD be getting the opportunity to call her on it.
