"General Hospital's" mysterious Dixon, who Paul Hornsby (Richard Burgi) has been heard conversing with for the last several weeks, has finally been identified as actor Troy Ruptash, who debuts in the recurring role beginning Friday, February 19, Soap Opera Network has learned.
With his hit primetime series getting canceled by A&E in late August, despite bringing in some of the largest audiences for the network overall, that hasn't stopped former "Longmire" and "As The World Turns" actor Bailey Chase (ex-Chris Hughes) from moving on with his career. Chase has landed a multi-episode arc on NBC's "Chicago P.D.," reports Deadline Hollywood.
After just three seasons on the air, A&E has canceled "Longmire," its highest rated original drama series of all time, reports Deadline's Nellie Andreeva.Based on the Walt Longmire Mystery novels by best-selling author Craig Johnson, the series followed its central character, Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor, "The Matrix"), the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. It co-starred "As The World Turns" alum Bailey Chase (ex-Chris Hughes) as Branch Connally, a deputy with political aspirations.
