Fans of GENERAL HOSPITAL were upset when Ryan Paevey announced his decision to leave the soap, and it was even more heartbreaking when his character of Nathan West was tragically killed off. However, they can take heart that the actor’s choice to pursue other career opportunities is already bearing fruit — he’s going to be appearing on an episode of BROOKLYN NINE-NINE!
Paevey shared a backstage selfie from the set of the hit FOX sitcom with series star Joe LoTruglio, who plays Charles Boyle. “This guy,” Paevey wrote. “One of the warmest, funniest humans I’ve ever met.” The show also stars another daytime alum, Melissa Fumero, who got her big break as Adriana Cramer on ONE LIFE TO LIVE.
While Paevey left GH to pursue other roles, this one isn’t too far removed from Detective Nathan West. “Serious cop to serious cop,” he admitted of his guest appearance on Twitter. “But hey, I got to hang with some really funny people for a day, and there was a dog!”
In fact, before sharing a pic with LoTruglio, Paevey shared one with his furry, four-legged co-star licking his hand! “Tummy rubs are the best,” the actor declared. “I swear, in my next life, I’m coming back as the dog on a TV set… ruff life.”
After his final episodes of GH aired, Paevey tried to reassure his disappointed daytime fans that he’d be back on screens again eventually. “I haven’t let you all, love,” he promised. “I’m just out there trying to give you something new to watch.” And while the rumored sequel to his Hallmark Channel movie Unleashing Mr. Darcy has not been officially announced, the IMDb lists Paevey as playing Adlai Stevenson in the upcoming film Bogie and Bacall.
The handsome and talented Paevey will no doubt have many more projects coming in the future, so we’ll let you know about all of them just as soon as we have the details. And for more on your favorite GH stars — past and present — keep reading the ABC edition of Soaps In Depth!
