Exactly what is General Hospital’s Daytime Emmy winning Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) doing in this picture?  Well, while we will have to wait till her Castle episode entitled “Significant Others”  airs on January 7th to truly find out,  soapers can weigh in and caption this photo in the comment section below!

In the meantime, here is a preview teaser of the upcoming episode from ABC which guest stars Nancy and and another soap fan favorite, Jack Wagner:  When a powerful divorce attorney who only represented women is murdered, Castle and Beckett are confronted with a plethora of angry ex-husbands, any one of whom could be the murderer.  Meanwhile, Castle’s ex-wife (Darby Stanchfield, “Scandal,” as Meredith) moves into the loft to take care of Alexis while she recovers from Mono, and to make matters worse, Beckett is also forced to move in while her apartment is being fumigated, causing tension, humor and more than a little awkwardness, on “Castle,” Monday January 7(10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.

Also, Jack Wagner (Melrose Place, GH and B&B) guest stars as a pro golfer whose career went down in flames after a nasty divorce scandal, and Nancy Lee Grahn (General Hospital) guests as a wealthy divorcee caught in a “War of the Roses”-like struggle with her ex-husband.

Castle stars Nathan Fillion as Richard Castle, Stana Katic as NYPD Detective Kate Beckett, Susan Sullivan as Martha Rodgers, Molly Quinn as Alexis Castle, Penny Johnson Jerald as NYPD Captain Victoria Gates, Tamala Jones as Medical Examiner Lanie Parish, Jon Huertas as NYPD Detective Javier Esposito, and Seamus Dever as NYPD Detective Kevin Ryan.   Guest Cast: Darby Stanchfield as Meredith, Jack Wagner as Billy Piper, Nancy Lee Grahn as Samantha Voss.

Are you looking forward to seeing Nancy and Jack mix-it-up with Nathan Fillion on Castle in the New Year? Let us know!

Nope to castle and nathan fillion. it’s unappetizing when actors move up the ladder and then diss their former jobs thru fake mockery of themselves like fillion has done. definitely a no to fillion after being on josh whedon’s whitewashing nightmare “firefly” w/c got axed after season 1! that show had no Asian american actors even if the storyline was abt a future w/c fused Asian and western cultures! whedon hired a white actor to portray the only Asian american character! Simon Tam was portrayed by white actor sean maher and thus the only Asian american role was whitewashed! Stupid… Read more »

Why would Nathan have anything to do with casting the shows he is on? Get a grip on reality and then come back at us. If you feel so strongly about the issue, why don’t you start your own online news page and see how many hits you can get.

gees, what show are you watching.???? Castle is a great fun show to watch. And I started watching because Nathan Fillion was from OLTL. I think there’s another guy that used to be on OLTL too, and then the gal that plays Kate, I had just seen her in another fun movie in the Librarian series with another favorite guy, Noah Wyle, where she played a French songstress/vampire. I didn’t get to see Firefly, saw him in Saving Private Ryan, but Nathan will always be Joey Buchanon to me. and I like when they put soap stars on other shows… Read more »

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
