Jonathon Jackson will reprise the role of Lucky Spencer on GH!

Greg Vaughan speaks out Via Twitter
As of today, with sad regrets, I will no longer be apart of what has been a big part of me and my families life. GH and TPTB have... choosen to take a new direction. I THANK ALL of YOU, for the many memories we've shared and new ones to come!!! ALL MY LOVE, & BIG HUGS...

SoapNet is reporting that Jonathon Jackson will begin taping on 10/1.

From the official statement:

"Greg Vaughn has decided to vacate the role to explore new opportunities. We thank him for his years engaging our audience and dedication to the show and network. The cast and crew wish him well in all his future endeavors."

OMG, this is the best news i have ever heard. This will get back to actively watching GH, not just whenever i get around to it.

Although I do love JJ, I find it kinda sad that they gave Greg the boot in favour of JJ. I mean Greg has been there for a while now and all they've given him are crappy storylines (IMO). While I'm excited for JJ to be back I will miss GV

OMG If JJ comes back I hope they give another chance at Liz and Lucky or Maybe Lucky will get a new interst, I'm guessing someone new Since GV kinda ruined the love storyline between them after JJ left, But I am sad hes going but excited JJ is coming back.

I was a fan of JJ as Lucky before, but with everything Greg added to Lucky (despite the storyline) I just don't see it working. Will make Lucky even more of a wuss with a younger scrawnier version IMHO.

Maybe he and Liz can have a shower love scene to make their fans happy and then they can slip and drown LOL That might be worth watching.

Wow, what a shocker! Greg Vaughn did an awesome job filling the role of Lucky. (Especially the addiction story)
I am intrigued to see what JJ will end up bringing to the canvas. Too bad they couldn't have gotten Amber Tamblyn to come back as Emily... that would have been great. Not that I don't like Natalia, but I just don't like the Rebecca story. Since her real life breakup with Tyler the scenes seem forced.
Hopefully it will work out. It's just too bad that Greg had to get the shaft!

I think Jonathon is an amazing actor, probably better than anyone else on the show, and I love them all, trust me! He just plays such a convincing role, no peaks past shoulders looking for his lines either......love Dante, but he needs to completely learn his lines!!!!!

I hope the baby is Lucky's and they thrive as a couple once Liz figures out why she sabatoges her life all the time. Probably due to the rape.....
It's time everyone comes clean and the adults in Michael's life do what's right and admit their part in lieing to protect a tender boy-it's getting kind of ridiculous. BUT, I NEVER miss a day!
