2019/12/06 Matt Cohen Set To Make General Hospital Return

In case you were worried about the number of sexy General Hospital doctors taking a fall in numbers recently, get ready because Matt Cohen is bringing Dr. Griffin Munro back to Port Charles shortly.

According to the December 16 issue of Soap Opera Digest, Cohen is checking back into General Hospital to offer his expertise on a case — probably for his former med school pal, Lucas Jones (Ryan Carnes), who was recently hospitalized with a brain injury after a terrible car accident. Griffin just so happens to be a neurosurgeon.

Look for Griffin to cross paths with some familiar faces, including former flame Ava (Maura West). She’s going through a horrible time ever since Kiki’s (Hayley Erin) murder last year, which also upset Griffin quite a bit since he was in love with Kiki at the time. (more…)

2019/06/27 General Hospital Spoilers: Matt Cohen’s Surprising GH Connection – Soap Star’s Wife Mandy Musgrave’s Exciting Role

General Hospital (GH) spoilers tease that a special guest star has a surprising ABC soap connection. GH fans recently met Carol Lockhart (Mandy Musgrave), the waitress Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) has been seeking help from in Beechers Corners. Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) also shared scenes with Carol, who wants Shiloh Archer (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) to finally be stopped.

If Musgrave looked familiar, there are some good reasons why. For starters, Musgrave happens to be married to a talented General Hospital alum. Matt Cohen (ex-Griffin Munro) left the show earlier this year, but his wife scored the part of Carol and did an excellent job. Musgrave had only wonderful things to say about GH and her costars for these episodes.

“Had the pleasure of stepping on 2 #GeneralHospital for a moment,” Musgrave tweeted after filming. “Blown away by their work ethic & charisma! Only takes 10 minutes 2 understand why that well oiled machine works so well. Chad Duell & Steve Burton we’re angels! Princes among men. thank you GH!” (more…)

2019/03/22 The Doctor Is Out! Matt Cohen Reveals Why He’s Leaving ‘General Hospital’

After a three-year stint as an angsty priest-turned-neurosurgeon on General Hospital, Matt Cohen, who plays Dr. Griffin Munro, is checking out of the ABC soap. His last air date is Friday, March 22.

The actor has had many stories during his Port Charles tenure and although his TV dad Duke Lavery (Ian Buchanan) was killed off a while back, the two actors managed to share screen-time when Duke appeared as an apparition in 2017.

Cohen says his exit is amicable and the door is being left open for his return. He’s tackling directing next, helming the film Mama Bear, which is already getting positive response as a short at festivals. It stars Cohen’s wife, Mandy Musgrave (whom veteran Days of Our Lives fans may recall as the original Chelsea). (more…)

2018/04/26 ‘General Hospital’ Star Matt Cohen on GrAva’s Future & Returning to ‘Supernatural’

Griffin Munro (Matt Cohen) is stuck between a rock and a hard place these days on ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital.

Fans of the long-running soap know that former priest Griffin is in his first real romantic relationship with Ava (Maura West), and while they’ve hit their share of bumps in the road, they’re working hard to make their union work. Griffin also has an allegiance to mobster Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Bernard) that could end up being a big problem given the fact that Sonny’s Alzheimers-ridden father Mike (Max Gail) recently kidnapped Ava and Sonny’s daughter, Avery (Ava and Grace Scarola).

As we saw on Friday’s episode, Avery was recovered unharmed. And while Sonny contends Mike didn’t actually kidnap the child, Ava isn’t having it and is also not going to let their daughter go to a home where Mike is also living. Will Griffin be able to reason with both sides to keep everyone happy? Or could it cost him one relationship — or maybe both? (more…)

2017/08/23 Kings of Con: Richard Speight Jr. says season 2 will happen once it finds a home

The Kings of Con will live on… it’s just a matter of where.

The digital series, from Supernatural‘s Richard Speight Jr. and Rob Benedict, follows fictionalized versions of the actors as they travel to various fan conventions and experience what it’s like to be rock stars in the convention world… and normal people in the real world. In the show’s first season, which streamed on Comic-Con HQ, several Supernatural stars stopped in, including Misha Collins, Kim Rhodes, Matt Cohen, Jensen Ackles, and Jared Padalecki. Along the way, the show gained a faithful following within the SPN Family. And that’s why Speight and Benedict are already working on season 2, even though it’s yet to find a home.

“Comic-Con HQ is no longer doing scripted content,” Speight says. “So now, we are going to go out and try to find a new home for the show. We’re going to do it, we just don’t know where.” (more…)

2015/10/31 What ‘Supernatural’s’ surprise Matt Cohen return means for Sam

matt-cohen-supernatural-thecw

While the star of the latest “Supernatural” episode — “Baby” — was undoubtedly the Impala, there was one familiar face that surely delighted longtime fans of the series.

After last appearing in Season 5, Matt Cohen returned as the younger version of John Winchester, appearing in a dream Sam (Jared Padalecki) was having. For Padalecki, having Cohen back on set was a fun little family reunion, even if only for a scene.

“I love Matt. ‘Supernatural’ is such a unique show because even though he hasn’t been on the show in five years, we still see each other several times a year,” the actor tells Zap2it and a group of outlets on the “Supernatural” set. “He’s a buddy, he just became a dad. Most of the time when they call cut, we’d be like, ‘So what’s going on? How’s the baby? How’s the wife?’” (more…)
