    Drew Garrett has been doing an excellent job playing as Michael. Anyone know why the recast is happening ? The new actor will first air on April 20th.

    First I've heard of this. Maybe to make Michael look a little older.

    I just looked it up on Google. The actor's name is Chad Duell.

    they are also recasting Morgan too.

    I read that and couldn't believe they let Drew Garret go, and agreed that he's been doing a great job, and also they've recast a new Morgan Corinthos, apparently Aaron Refvem got a job on a pilot that was picked up...all this great talent is being fired and I don't get it, it so ticks me off.

    TPTP may reverse their decision. I've heard on soapcentral that there's a bit of backlash with Michael's recast. If it's bad enough they may ask Drew Garett to come back.

    I've heard various things though nothing lagitimately confirmed to why Drew was let go...

    The casting dept did a kick ass job in SORASing the kids last Spring/Summer at least enough for someone who is Anti-SORASing to love the kids more then the established adults....

    I get Aaron being let go cause NBC wouldn't let him stick around cause of the pilot (I just hope it gets picked up) but with Drew????

    heres hoping Haley and Lexi stick round

    OK, I just have to add one comment to this, I don't like the new Michael!
