Hogestyn played the role of "Lucas Jones" on General Hospital from September 2005 to June 2006, assuming the role from Ryan Carnes of Desperate Housewives at a pivotal point in the character's storyline: on Hogestyn's third day of taping, the character of Lucas came out as gay, becoming the first gay male character from a "core" family in soap opera history (the character of Lucas is the son of the show's 70's era schemer "Nurse Bobbie" Spencer, and nephew to soap legends "Luke and Laura" Spencer.)
2006 24 Years Old In 2006, Hogestyn left his non-contract role on General Hospital to begin appearing on The Bold and the Beautiful in the contract role of "Harry Jackson," a new character tied to fellow former General Hospital star Jack Wagner's "Nick Marone." (The character of Lucas on General Hospital was written out without an explanation following Hogestyn's departure, but has since been mentioned that Lucas lives in Seattle.)In early November 2006, however, as Harry's screentime diminished, Hogestyn was shifted to recurring status, and the character of Harry has not been seen on-screen in 2007.
