Guess you can’t keep a loony tune mobster locked in prison for a long term sentence after all! That is what is happening in the latest mob wars on General Hospital, now that Bruce Weitz’s diabolical and crazy Anthony Zacchara is going to be sprung from jail!  Weitz chatted with TV Guide to give the low down on what Anthony Z’s intentions are to get Michael Corinthos offer on the Zacchara’s side and more.   Here are a few excerpts!

Weitz on Anthony recruting Michael to the mob:  “Anthony loves the fact that Claudia is dead and he doesn’t care who did it. He got rid of her and he didn’t have to do it himself, so he’s fine with it. Anthony has nothing against Michael except that he’s Sonny’s son. If he weren’t, he’d probably like the kid. Anthony is only using Michael as leverage against Sonny.”

Weitz on who else Anthony will be mixing it up with in Port Chuck: “He’s going through a whole renewal of his spirit and very busy coming on to women. (Laughs)After this long stint in jail, he’s a real horny devil! And he really goes for it with Carly. He’s in romantic mode-plus! He has some great scenes with Johnny’s girlfriend, Lisa. Also Michael and Abby.”

Weitz on his thought on playing mob stories on daytime: “There’s no real threat on our show because the true soap-opera fans know Maurice Benard [Sonny] is not going to get killed off. So the threat is imaginary. In The Godfather you don’t expect Brando to get shot a quarter of the way through the movie, or that James Caan’s character will die. That’s the real danger of living in the world of mobsters and hoodlums. So you can’t really equate the two. At GH, we’re just having fun.”

Are you looking forward to the unleashing of the zany and evil mob boss?

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
