If you thought DANCING WITH THE STARS wouldn’t invite another GENERAL HOSPITAL star to join the show’s cast so soon after Kelly Monaco (Sam) appeared on the reality dance competition series, you’d be wrong! Ingo Rademacher (Jax) was announced today as a competitor in the show’s 16th season, set to debut on Monday, March 18 at 8:00 pm EST. Technically, though, the actor, who appeared on GH in last year’s contagion storyline, is no longer a regular cast member.
“There’s nothing coming up right now,” Rademacher tells Soaps In Depth when asked if Jax would be making any appearances in Port Charles in the near future. “But if the fans want to bug [executive producer] Frank Valentini, his Twitter handle is @valentinifrank. You can bombard him!”
Rademacher adds that he wouldn’t let the strenuous DWTS schedule stop him from doing double-duty. “I’m always up for coming back to GH,” he says with a smile. For now, though, he and pro partner Kym Johnson, a two-time DWTS mirror ball champion, are off to Hawaii to practice and perfect their first dance. “Then, my family will come back to LA,” Rademacher adds.
