Aw, sorry to hear that. I remember liking him on Knots Landing.

Loved him on Knots. So sexy. RIP.

He played Olivia Newton-John’s boyfriend in a Mom For Christmas in the 90s.

I saw him for the very first time in an episode of Charlie’s Angels. He was training an undercover Kelly on how to be an activities director aboard a cruise ship. In walked an undercover Kris (Cheryl Ladd) who said something stupid to Doug after making a grand entrance on the ship “Forget the queen honey. Where’s the king?” Doug’s response was to just stand there with his mouth open as he watched Kris walk past him lookin hot.

Classic BDF. RIP.

He was so sexy and quite good, but in many ways his career never took off.

He stopped acting twenty years ago.

I thought he looked familiar, Joe Kelly on General Hospital. Can’t remember any storylines he had though.

I remember him from the short-lived series Day by Day with Linda Kelsey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. I was a young teen, but I remember the show being cute and Christopher Barnes as the teenage son being cute too. The show must have been cancelled about a week before Dreyfus got Seinfeld.

He was so hot. I loved him on GH.

I wanted a guy like him, Black Irish type, beautiful eyes.

R1, that thread was killed by r1, who claimed that he was hotter than Ted Shackleford.

That said, he was indeed quite appealing in a boy-next-door kind of way.

I enjoyed his run on Knots Landing.

Ditto here r11. I got hooked on him when I was 7 yrs old.

He was hot because he seemed so likeable.

Rest inside me quite deeply.

Well, you know what I mean.

I have to post this scene again. Doug did some fine eye acting.

I remember Joe Kelly! He was a lawyer, who eventually hooked up his father's much-younger widow, Rose, who ran Kelly's Diner. Didn't he represent Heather during her murder trial, and almost get sucked in by her act? Anyway....I remember him as the ultimate nice guy -- the present-day equivalent to Mac Scorpio.

He always seemed a little overweight to me. Very average body.

by Anonymousreply 17July 8, 2024 10:44 PM

Never liked him on KL - thought his character was not very well thought out. His only good scene was his confrontation with Abby and he quit on her. She was hilarious.

by Anonymousreply 18July 8, 2024 11:57 PM

Didn’t he deflower virginal Anne Logan who was in her late 20s or 30s only for her to throw him over for his BDF roommate and best friend Jeff Webber (MacGuyver)?

R15, I knew exactly what scene that would be before watching — thank you for posting it. That scene is, I’m my opinion, television at its best and shows what a great actor Doug Sheehan was!

by Anonymousreply 22July 9, 2024 2:28 AM

He was the father in Day by Day.

I never rubbed one out to Doug Sheehan. Just sayin’.

Doug lost a lot of weight over the years; he'd lost a lot before GH and probably before Charlie's Angels, too.

He was never all toned up but he was okay.

Great as Ben; great as Joe.

Not sure why he gave up acting.

I love Jackie Zeman and Bobbie but Kelly's should never have been renamed.

That was great, r21. I can still name each character in the video

R28: I love that O'Reilly made it into the video.

Tony and Genie were stars but so was the rest of the cast; it was one of the best ensembles in soaps ever.

Let's not forget GH skyrocketed in the ratings in 1978 once Marland's stories kicked in. Geary didn't join until December of that year.

Lesley bitch slapping Monica after the truth about AJ and the (Dr.) Bombay phenotype syndrome came to light remains a class.

I had a huge crush on him on that show!

Joe Kelly lived in one of the rooms above Kelly’s diner, and he was either an upstanding lawyer or maybe a police detective.

The big tension I remember is Joe was in a romance with Heather (Robin Mattson) who was a manipulative monster - and you wondered when he’d catch on.

The Quartermaine family& that home were the best part of GH, along with the Cassadine family (with their island& lovely title).

Love that pic at R32.

The wet, hairy chest. Those shorts. I imagine his cock slowly getting hard as I slip out of the side of those trunks.

I remember Joe Kelly being in love with Heather and proving her innocence, but did he ever get to actually fuck her? I can't remember.

by Anonymousreply 40July 10, 2024 6:07 AM

I don’t remember the story line for his exit. Did he end up hooking up with his late father’s wife Rose?

R41 - Joe left Port Charles before his step-mom/former lover Rose did. Joe, an attorney, went to Albany to work in state government. He was almost never referenced again, and I think Sheehan left the show because he just got the Knots Landing gig.

Rose hung around for a while and probably her biggest stories were her ill-fated romance with new lawyer in town (she had a type), Jake Meyer, who coincidentally ALSO left GH to later work on KL as another husband to Poor Val. Anyway, Jake and Rose's romance withered because he was Jewish and she was Catholic and that mattered for some reason back then. Later she adopted Louisa "Lou" Swenson who I assume was hoped to be the new Laura. Lou got mixed up with Blackie Parrish (John Stamos) who during an argument with her over confessing to stealing a hit song pushed her; Lou fell, hit her head on a table and died instantly. Blackie went to prison not wanting to defend himself (Jake was his lawyer).

It's hard to see an episode of contemporary GH and all of its mob nonsense and not pity what they did to that once-great soap.

R42, he had weight issues for a long time; he didn't define his body after he lost the weight; his strengths were his charms, his smile; his generosity and his gregarious nature.

I’ve never seen a picture of him looking overweight.
