Agree. Fantastic casting.

Has anybody seen Calabro today? He looks 19!!! He could play himself from 20 years ago since he hasn’t aged one bit.

Yeah, I can see him in the role. I just can’t imagine how good this project could possibly be.

I’m not usually one for “behind the scenes” unauthorized storytelling, but I just have such great memories of watching MP with my oldest daughter, my sisters and friends. The ’90’s were really great for me and I just have such fond memories of that period of my life. Hope the storytelling is done in a captivating way.

Thrilled with this news. Michael Mancini was one of my faves on that show, and Thomas Calabro was a hottie. Excellent casting for both acting and hotness factor with Brandon!

All wrong, just bad casting. He doesn’t have that look the actor did, there has to be an unknown/somebody else somewhere. This makes wonder about the rest of the casting.

What is the point of these movies?? Who cares about “behind the scenes” dirt from a 90s show?? I don’t get it…….

Brandon is an amazing actor and an amazing person, he’ll be great in this. He is a genuinely nice guy, great to his fans, he talks with them on social media all the time, and knows their names/where they live, etc.

I’m guessing the movie will be about all the “behind the scenes” stuff?
Could be more interesting than the actual show was, LOL, although I was a big MP fan back in the day.

Good luck Johnny boy! I think this will be so bad it might just be funny! I was hoping Brandon would come back to GH to make a run at Sonny’s territory. THEN, after Johnny gets his hands on it, Anthony’s twin shows up and fights Johnny for the family business. Bruce Weitz was one of the all time greats on GH. Just to hear him say LU LU again would be worth it!

Lol. I love these cheezy Unauthorized movies. They always have a little semblance of truth to them, based on what is common knowledge, but for the most part they are just fluff. Popcorn fare to relive our beloved old shows.

This one ripped this one’s clothes off in the trailer..she/he was an addict and showed up intoxicated on the set..shhh..girl on girl/man on man..with these four..umm..i’ll stick to TMZ for shock story..and since it’s 2015 even they would keep it kicking like …oh really?..meh…This movie should have been the opener to season 2 Queens of Drama..another show about nothing in general..but hey..let’s hope you’re entertained…lol

This week’s it’s the highly-anticipated double wedding of Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) on General Hospital, but already things look pretty dismal that any nuptials will take place, or will they?

We already know that Anna and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) have figured out Peter is a very bad guy, Maxie is having second doubts of marrying the guy, someone enters the picture unexpected from the latest promo and the end of last Friday’s cliffhanger, Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) got some motherly news for Peter,  and Finn is on a mission to find out if he is the bio-son of Chase (Josh Swickard), and not his father Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and more!

On Monday, ABC released its promo for the nuptials, which does have guests seated at the wedding, but who will show up to say their “I do’s”?

 

In the latest issue of SOD on newsstands now, GH co head-writer, Chris Van Etten shared what fans should expect, revealing: “The double wedding is the crescendo and climax of years of stories, secrets and lies – and by the time it’s over, the lives of everybody involved will have been changed forever.”

Watch the teaser below.

Now, let us know: Do you think either couple, Maxie and Peter, or Anna and Finn ,will actually get hitched? How do you think the drama will go down on Port Charles? Weigh-in via the comment section.
