Brad Maule Reprising His Role As Dr. Tony Jones On General Hospital

Courtesy: BradMauleTwitter

There is official confirmation today that Brad Maule is returning to General Hospital in his signature soap role as Dr. Tony Jones.  The event will take place sometime in November when Tony appears to his adopted son, Lucas (Ryan Carnes) in a pivotal moment.

The character of Tony was killed-off the Port Charles canvas back in 2006 when he died of encephalitis.

Brad lives in Austin tx he is a super guy great actor can’t believe Frank would use him I think he use to be a conservative radio host ! Lordy those flaming liberals can’t allow that ! Great to see you Brad show those idiots how to act on that show ! Bravo! You got robbed of a Emmy for the BJ story those were the days

Frankly, I blame Obama for killing off Tony Jones. I also blame him for the deaths of Alan and AJ Quartmermaine.

That’s hilarious Harry. Yes, I read Kay’s comments and thought why is she injecting flaming Liberals into the return Tony Jones. Nice way to handle it!

I know you are just attempting to take a stab at humor there, Harry, but even those of us who don’t like “your president” realize that Tony Jones was killed off during “George W’s” administration…hence you missed a great Bush-bashing opportunity there, since as I recall, everything was 43’s fault according to the left! Having said that, I don’t think it would be far-fetched to suggest that AJ’s abrupt death—- and particularly his seemingly highly-unlikely resurrection—-have some connection to Sean Kanan’s stated political beliefs and appearances on conservative talk shows. Despite remaining one of GH’s most popular legacy characters who… Read more »

Hollywood is a liberal love fest! Their mob-like president is De Niro and his right hand man is Baldwin.

Not only that, I think Hillary was the one who was driving the bus that ran over BJ! And she (Hillary) liked it!

@Kay….God Bless You!….Although I have no particular devotion to either Tony Jones or Brad Maule, you certainly have the guts to say out loud what a lot of us think in reference to the casting decisions made at GH….It’s pretty obvious that Republican-leaning actors are considered undesirables in the Port Charles sphere, and the few current/recently departed players that I suspect of harboring such political views have out of necessity kept a very dignified silence regarding their opinions for the sake of self-preservation.

GH is making casting decisions based on people’s political beliefs? Sorry, that is one of the most ridiculous, asinine things I’ve ever heard in my life. They currently employ numerous people both in front of and behind the camera who would identify as Republican or conservative, and you don’t have to look very hard to know who they are, either. So honestly, stop with this made up conspiracy theory nonsense.

I never heard of this man, not a clue to him. Apparently he will be a ghost just in time for Halloween LOL.. Anyways.. Don’t anyone put blame on Julian, Brad lied to him, also. As for Julian; He’s not Blackmailing Brad, he simply threatened him.. Bard could have come forth at any time with the truth, Julian is not to blame for Brad’s cowardness and deceit. If I were writing the story;’ Julian would have punched him upside the head and forced Brad to tell Lucas the truth a long time ago. Have you ever noticed; most soap characters… Read more »

I agree with you, Suoo. That mouth breather Brad pulled Julian into his scheme. I cannot stand Brad–Lucas is way too good for that creep. And I will never be able to erase the sight of mouth breathing Brad in his black, bikini underwear.

You are so right. I hate that little slimy Brad and have since he and the britch did what they did to Lulu. How much you wanna bet, she will come out of the woodwork to help him out when everything falls around his ears? I could never understand the coupling of he and Lucas, who is such a great guy, though naive and seems to live in a cocoon.

They make Julian into a pansy. Why? He can be out of the mob but still be a hard ass! He should have slapped Brad a long time ago!

Classic GH! Kill off a long timer unnecessarily, and then toss long time fans a scrap with a ghost. Its not enough.

It’s been a long time since I’ve been so angry about a television spoiler because after having watched GH religiously for decades, I permanently turned it off in disgust when in 2013, Frisco Jones and Robin Scorpio were trashed by TPTB. Since then, I’ve seen news about the show on social media, but this tidbit has me triggered. I do NOT want Tony Jones to come back to a show run by people who have no problem destroying returning vets for the fun of it and using them to prop their OLTL pets. Tony Jones belongs to the Golden Era… Read more »

I could not agree with you more, Lillian! What was done to besmirch and belittle the character of Frisco Jones was especially revolting! (And it continues to this day with the snarky little offhanded remarks by Mac, Felicia, et al…) Jack Wagner’s star-making role was one of GH’s finest and most popular during the heyday of the soap, and it was extremely offensive to see both the actor and his singing secret agent treated with such utter disrespect during his much anticipated and far-too-brief return. As far as Tony Jones goes, I say let the dead rest in peace and… Read more »

Thank you for the reply and support of my comment. With all due respect, while I understand your desire to see Frisco Jones redeemed through another return to GH, I would not hold my breath for a number of reasons. First, this regime had every opportunity to honor Frisco Jones (and his fans) when they managed to get him to agree to return for a short visit after an 18 year absence. They chose instead to denigrate, disparage, mock, and humiliate him in order to make the lacklustre Mac Scorpio appear to be a viable alternative for Felicia when all… Read more »

And thank you for your very eloquent response, Lillian! Once again, we are on the exact same page, as I do realize that my wish for the triumphant return of Frisco Jones to Port Charles is more than likely just a pipedream. As you have pointed out, not only does Jack Wagner have a multitude of better things to do than come back to daytime, but the current GH regime has made their negative feelings toward the character and the actor abundantly clear with their snotty little asides that have been tossed into the show’s dialogue for some time now.… Read more »

YES!!! I am excited to hear this bit of news!!! I always thought it was bogus when they killed off Tony and never understood how his death could move story forward So glad we get to see the character again even if it’s a ghostly type of visit.

It will be wonderful to see Brad Maule on screen again. GH does the “dead character appears as a ghost” bit a lot, but it’s been 13 years since Brad last appeared, so it will be meaningful, particularly for longtime fans. Tony was one of my favorite characters when I started watching GH in the early 90s. All these years later, I still get emotional when I think of that scene with Tony putting his head on Maxie’s chest to hear BJ’s heart beating after the heart transplant. You know something was well done when it still touches you 25… Read more »

Hopefully Ghost Tony can put an end to this baby switch dragonshit storyline. Tony’s not down here in Hell, but if we keep track of things in Port Charles, you can bet they know about it upstairs as well.

I figured it out. Brad is an awsome actor, he’s coming back because he owes a favor or he needs money. The creepy mongers, are so desparite to make ratings or money, that they think each infomercial scene, will keep people caring. Stupid stories, sucking depth of story, hoping to catch the ADDT generation….but they are mostly on Pharmas, that prevent them from giving attention to a storey…or following one. Let’s face it folks, Storey telling gone from our world atleast from TV, and the stupid attempts these stupid producers are using to ‘last another week’ LAME. Lets hope THEY… Read more »

I loved Tony and Tonya. What a great era. BUT, Tony, like Tonya are gone. I hate that he is being brought back as a ghost. It is cheap and quite frankly a slap in the face! But, its Brad’s choice. He knows what he is doing. Maybe its just a little gift for us long time fans? I just wish he would have come back permanently as Tony’s never mentioned older brother who ALSO is a doctor. Can you imagine him at GH at the nurses station and Bobbi gets off the elevator and she sees him? Oh wait,… Read more »

General Hospital

GH Faves Finola Hughes, Ian Buchanan, Brooklyn Rae Silzer, Marc Anthony Samuel In New IGTV Series, ‘Enter Exit’

This week, General Hospital’s Finola Hughes (Anna) and some very good friends and acting partners debuted in a new IGTV series, directed by Hughes amid the COVID-19 pandemic, and it’s a thriller! What else would we expect from the woman who plays super spy Anna Devane on the ABC daytime drama series.

The IGTV (Instagam’s longer video application) series is called, Enter Exit, and there are 11 episodes, and the first one dropped on Monday.  It is  written by TV scribe Matt Boren, and also stars some of Port Charles’ longtime favorites that include: Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), Brooklyn Rae Silzer (Emma) and Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix).

Hughes told SOD how she was inspired to come up with the concept for the show:  “I started to think about, if you’re in lockdown, what would be a narrative where you could act in a vacuum, basically? I first started thinking about what my character would be — a retired (government) agent. And then there’s some reason that I’m retired. And I started to think about stationary shots and walking into your closeup and all those kinds of things. I left (the rest) with Matt; it was basically, ‘Whatever he writes, we’ll do.’ And I just sort of concentrated on how, feasibly, we could do it.”’

Boren, who has been an ardent viewer of GH from its hey day, shared on working off Hughes seeds of an idea to what Enter Exit is about: “In a sense, it’s a local detective thriller that starts out small — and understandably so as season one takes place during the pandemic. However, what we seed throughout these first 11 mini-episodes hints at a show that longs to be on a much larger, more global scale. We were absolutely inspired by ’80s GH — the WSB, the espionage and larger than life stories that were so thrilling, and through Devane/Scorpio/Lavery/Donnelly/Jones, so grounded. Throw that in with some Killing Eve, X-Files and (this will make sense down the line) Stranger Things, and you have a recipe that might be pages away in our cookbook.”

Now check out episode 1 below featuring Hughes and Silzer and make sure to follow Finola’s IG account for all-new installments of Enter Exit.

So, what do you think about the concept of the series? Excited to see more? Let us know via the comment section.

Days Of Our Lives

GH’s Maurice Benard and DAYS Kassie DePaiva Named “Power Performances of the Week”

Two daytime vets in two very opposing types of storylines delivered emotional and riveting work during their scenes.  First on General Hospital, Maurice Benard (Sonny) in yet another stellar knockout performance in the Alzheimer’s storyline; showed the anguish and pain of a son trying to come to terms with his father’s ultimate fate.

This week saw Sonny originally deciding to try to prolong Mike’s (Max Gail) life by having him placed on a feeding tube, but soon after seeing the fate of Yvonne, another Alzheimer’s patient, and a talk with Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Sonny changed course, and did what’s best for Mike, not for himself, and decided to let his father die with dignity and with as least suffering as possible.

We don’t think there could have been a dry eye in the house when Sonny visited Mike’s hospital bedside, and told him that it’s OK for his dad to let go, and not have to stick around for him.  Max Gail, as per usual, was also so touching in these scenes.

Benard did not overplay a beat, and for anyone who has had a parent die of this dreadful disease, you could relate to what Sonny went through in the more than capable hands of this two-time Daytime Emmy winner.

Over on Days of our Lives, what a return for Kassie DePaiva in her role as Eve Donovan! This time, she has come back unhinged and at an emotional rock bottom, so much so that she had abducted Ben Weston (Rob Scott Wilson), had him taken to an abandoned warehouse, strapped him up, tortured him with an assist from Dr. Rolf’s protege, Vincent (Michael Teh), and came up with this twisted plot to have Ben turn back into the “necktie serial killer” and kill his bride, Ciara (Victoria Konefal).

Why, you say? Well, because Eve’s daughter, Paige was one of Ben’s victims and it has been eating Eve alive this whole time. She is a mama grieving for her daughter so deeply that she can’t understand why Paige is dead and he is left on earth to roam around free and find love and happiness… and we find out she was gutted when Ben got a last-minute reprieve when he was recently sentenced to death by lethal injection.

DePaiva played this arc of Eve’s story as a soapalicious villain, but when you really deconstruct it, Eve is just in so much pain… and all of that came through even in the darkest of scenes.  And … there is yet more to come!

Kudos to Maurice and Kassie for being named Michael Fairman TV’s “Power Performances of the Week”.

So, do you agree with our picks for Maurice and Kassie? What did you think of their work? Comment below.
