    I always just loved RDA as Jeff ..
    But truly, it's been so long, almost anybody could portray him now...
    This should be interesting...........

      Hunt Block would be good IMO! I have always loved his acting.

        Oh that's a good suggestion! I enjoyed him when he played Craig on ATWT. He really made the role his own and made Craig a bit more underhanded than he was previously portrayed. Excellent suggestion!

      Doug Davidson?? I also like the Hunt Block suggestion too! Shame that RDA doesn't want to come back though.

        Ooh, especially if Jeff has decided to act like a father and is truly looking for a reconciliation. You need to want to like Jeff,

      Jerry von Dorn would be great as well. I loved him as Clint Buchanan on OLTL.

        Jerry ver Dorn was going to be my suggestion as well. His Clint was a fantastic recast.

        JVD has been my top choice for Jeff pretty much since OLTL ended. GH actually should have brought him in years ago and paired him with Tracy. It's too late for that now since JE is retired, but JVD would still fit in perfectly as the GH/hospital patriarch the show has been sorely lacking.

      Ed O'Niel, he loves playing guys that are lowlife father lol

        Gregory Harrison would have been a good choice...I would rather have him be Liz's Father...then Chase & Finn's

          Well he isn’t really busy now. They can move him over as Liz’s dad. Lol

        The feeling is mutual. I doubt the powers-that-be want RDA back either. The last photo I saw of RDA showed that he had put on a noticeable amount of weight.

          Thanks for letting me know, wfreshie2130!

        Too bad Michael E Knight is already cast as Martin. He would have been a good Jeff Webber, since RDA doesn't want to return.
        I'll agree with above post by jenndflash....Jerry Ver Dorn who played Clint Buchannan on OLTL.

          Micheal Shanks I think he would be great.

            I think he'd be a bit young. He's not much older than BH, let alone anyone who has played Steven (he's younger than Scott Reeves) Hell, he's barely older than an unSORASed Steven would be.

          there are too many characters on the show already; why bring back a character who left town 40 years ago to support one other character?

          (Now, if Steven Lars and Hayden were returning to town, it would make more sense to me because Jeff would be connected to three characters)

            They’ve done a lot more for single characters already on canvas. I think they should re-cast Sara (Bree Williamson?) and bring back Hayden. Then you have the Webber sisters to make tons of trouble.

            With other family and connections in town, I'd say you could find more for Jeff to do than just be on for Liz. Heck, he has four grandchildren in town, his niece is the Mayor, and one of his ex-wives (Monica) is still in town

          Jerry von Dorn is a great choice. Another possibility is Walt Willey who played Jackson Montgomery on AMC.


        • #13
          I'm sure Frank would have Jerry V in mind because of their OLTL ties, but I don't think Jerry has acted since then.

            I don't need a Jeff Webber to return, or anyone else in her family. (and I watched when jeff webber was on)


            • #15
              I had initially always thought Jerry verDorn would be good, but that Walt Willey mention a few posts above is a good suggestion too!

              With the randomness of today's call, and with Scott offering to talk to Jeff for her as well a couple months ago (since they knew each other from way back)...I'm hoping these are anvils dropping for a Jeff return engagement.

              Would be a great way to bring in Rachel Ames for a quick visit if she was up for it, too. I know she's not Jeff's mother but she and Steve worked to have a good relationship with him.

                Rachel Ames is almost 92 years old. The last time we saw her, she was sitting at a desk, writing a letter. I doubt she would be able to come on, especially with COVID.
