Unfortunately, I could not even touch that bid. It will go sky high.

No ‘guarantee that the walk on scene won’t be cut’? Really? That’s not very nice, considering someone is going to give a lot of money to charity while also paying their own travel expenses.

What the hell is going on? We now have it in schools that we can’t call them boys & girls! God have mercy on our souls.

I attended a school function and addressed my 17 yr olds class as boys and girls…no one complained, banned me from school and no police were called in…lol…who thought up that anyway…you can say a dirty word but cant say ‘boys and girls’ is the most absurd thing ive ever heard…i could understand if it were ‘ladies and gentlemen’ because there are so few of them these days but banning ‘boys and girls’ is absolutely crazy!!!

That’s a lot of pennies! No sense in counting the pennies in a piggy bank. A person would need a passel of pigs to have that many cents!!!

Are you listening, su0000? LOL! ☺

The winner receives a nonspeaking walk on role, but there’s no guarantee to be seen in the final cut of the episode…It’s OK if the winner is a deaf mute as long as he or she is not ugly!

And only one winnner…I guess if a person is a conjoined twin, there’s no sense in bidding…that could be a reason the person is not guaranteed to be seen.

Disney/ABC…a multi-media organization with millions of dollars and high paid execs…are luring fans to bid with money that most don’t have…or shouldn’t be throwing out…for the privilege of a non-speaking walk-on with “no guarantee that the participant’s scene will be in featured in the final cut of the episode.”

Wow! What a deal! Now THAT’S funny!

I must add that I do not mean that the cause is ridiculous….just the MEANS. They could have thought of a less expensive way….not even guaranteed…what the______ !!!

I have LOVED GH my whole life. I would bid, but when I read -There is no guarantee that the participant’s scene will be in featured in the final cut of the episode – I will pass. As a youngster I dreamed of being an actress and working on this show. But if it would never be featured – then why would I spend so much money? So what they really want is your hard earned money. Also a NON SPEAKING ROLE? Come on GH… be better to your fans than this! What a way to crash a dream……

I see it as also being with your favorite stars..
Whomever wins will get be backstage/around the stars, also..
It would be a great memorable time, without a doubt..
And its for a good cause ” to help raise money to keep kids safe from harm in a tolerant learning environment”..
Whomever Wins will have a great time regardless if the walk in would not be shown, but then again it most likely will be shown..

su0000…That good cause could be funded solely by ABC 100 times over. Why not do the right thing and just run a contest where the winner gets to do all the things you described…for free! After all, these actors have jobs (and ABC makes money) because we watch their shows or follow them to others…

IMO, this reminds me of that moment in PEANUTS when Lucy (on purpose) removes that football as poor Charlie Brown is about to kick it and all of a sudden…SPLAT!!!!! Bottom Line Here: IMO, it seems to me that Disney is getting someone’s hopes up and then…SPLAT!!!!! If that’s the case, then that’s NOT COOL AT ALL!!!!!! Period.

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
