Brandon Barash On His Way Back To General Hospital?

Over the weekend, rumors escalated via a report from Daytime Confidential that none other than fan favorite, Brandon Barash is set for a return to General Hospital as Johnny Zacchara for a short story arc!

With Port Charles riddled with crime, and the reveal to D.A Baldwin (Kin Shriner) and police commissioner Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) that Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) killed AJ Quartermaine, could Sonny end up behind bars and at Pentonville alongside his arch enemy Johnny Z.?

That would seem to be intriguing, since Connie (formerly played by Kelly Sullivan) set-up Sonny to walk in on her and Johnny which inflamed the already bitter rivalry!  Or, could Johnny’s short story arc have to do with just who is “Fluke”?

Barash is married to GH star Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and the duo share a baby girl together, Harper.

Would you like to see Johnny Zacchara back on the canvas? If so,  how do you think he will be brought into the story? Comment below!

STILL think Fluke is Anthony Zacchara, so this would fit in nicely, hmmmmm?

I said it from the FIRST…and STILL believe FLUKE is AZ…From Heather to Jocelyn…he’s got it in for that ENTIRE group of characters tied to Sonny!!! What if Connie was secretly his niece???

Awesome! It will be nice to have Johnny Z back on screen even if it is only for a short time.

It would be awesome to have Brandon Barash /Johnny back!!!
I know he wouldn’t resign back on but it would be fun to see him again..
IF Sonny gets incarcerated, then Maurice is going on vacation..
But– he would be gone for a short while, Sonny/Maurice is not leaving GH, so no problem.. He will be set free..
Brandon Barash will have a good time, I’d bet..
I really like how FV&RC brings in missed vets… its always fun!

I agree, bring him back and pair him up with his real life lady love, Kristin Storms.
Then hand this talented man some decent material.
Make him play “Moonlight Sonata” on the piano while he dreamily stares off into space trying to chase those demons away.

Not only would I like to see him return, NO ONE I know ever wanted him gone. I have literally never seen a bad word said about Brandon, and the only thing bad I have read about Johnny Zacchara is that the WRITERS destroyed his character, and we were all pretty upset about it.

I’m thrilled he’s returning, but disappointed it’s only for a short arc. I hope they’ll see the error of their ways and bring him back – to stay!

Brando, he is daddy and I assume wanted out of the soaps..
I’m sure RC and FV would love to have Brandon back, thing is-
he might not want to come back ..

Some believe it is the producers who let sonso go, when it was the actor who wanted out and doesn’t want to return, outside of an appearance stay..

I’d love it Brandon wanted to return but doubt it 🙁 ”never say never”!

If he does come back long term or short term, that would be great..The character of Johnny was such a tortured soul and Brandon Barash played him to the hilt…This great talent will always be welcome back!!!

You’re right, Omar. Johnny was so torn from the beginning over his mom’s life and death, his father’s cold hand and “profession”…yet he tended to Anthony and his “garden.” He had that final showdown with his father which was full of conflict…and then his despair/guilt over being responsible for Starr’s boyfriend and daughter’s death..Great story lines…great acting. Looking forward to his return; just anticipating hating to see him go again.

Yes bring Johnny Back! Maybe have him and Sonny break out of prison together! That would be a very exciting story line! The both of them previously enemies working together to escape prison! OR The Governor is visiting the prison. While he is there a full blown riot occurs and the prison is taken over by the prisoners! They take the Governor hostageThey are threatening to kill the Governor and all of the guards unless they are given money and transportation out of prison. Sonny and Johnny work together to overthrow the prisoners in charge and get the others to… Read more »

That is wonderful news, I love Brandon he is a terrific actor. Brandon is very hot, yum yum eye candy lol. On the weekend celebrity dirty laundry on line said, Brandon will be back for a short term arc storyline. I want Brandon back on contract, I missed him so much. Maybe Carly and Johnny can get back together, I would love that so much.

So many great storyline possibilities. I’ve missed Johnny Z. Even a short story arc would be welcome.

This show is dumb.Johnny is in jail for killing ColeandHope who are not characters and haven’t ever been. he killed a man who killed a lot of people and should have gotten a medal. His father..BB was one of the actors on the show I enjoyed watching. will his arc be in jail with Sonny. can johnny please shank Sonny in the prison yard.?please !.Love to see him back with Olivia. keep him and dump sonny.

LOL, Janet. It’d be a crime to hit and run anyone…even if the characters were never onscreen. Johnny killing Sonny’s not going to happen…but I think it’ll be interesting to see if these two clash or bond in the clink!

Brandon Barash is a fantastic actor and Johnny has been sorely missed on GH! I really hope this will lead into Brandon returning full time because I love the character. If GH can bring people back from the dead and find loopholes for so many characters to get out of their crimes, they can find a way to bring Johnny back permanently! In terms of story, I don’t think his return will have to do with the Fluke reveal. I think either Sonny or Carly or whoever ends up in jail will see him. Hopefully it’s Sonny so that Johnny… Read more »

Rebecca its not a crime to hit and run someone who never was PP made sure these characters plus Starr and Todd were never here. They owned them and they took them back. If they were ever there don’t you think the actress who looks like Starr would at least mention them. You cannot kill someone who never was. Johnny killed his father in self defense. The man was a murderering pig. he could be funny but Johnny being in jail for coleandhope is stupid.

Janet…all the characters from OLTL who came as their characters, Starr, Todd and John were there. It is acknowledged that they were there…and that they all left. GH didn’t pretend that those characters never existed…they just had to get rid of them…so they kept the actors, gave them all new names/identities…and we, the fans, had to REALLY suspend our disbelief and ignore the fact that they were all carbon copies of the OLTL three. Which we did. After a while we just accepted that these three are new characters. No reference is made (at least not serioiusly) to their resemblance… Read more »

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.
