"Just spoke with Brad Bell and at this time he's decided to RECAST THORNE. I wish the new actor and the show continued success," Harmon tweeted before the "General Hospital" alum's casting was announced.
"Congrats @IngoRademacher you're gonna be amazing as Thorne buddy!! Big shoes dude, size 11, call me man," the actor posted after the news broke that Rademacher is taking over the role Harmon played for 20 years.
Rademacher responded: "Thanks old buddy. That means a lot. Be great to catch up!.....but they will have to buy me new shoes (size 13) :-)"
