Christian Monzon cast as Delores Padilla's sexy hubby on General Hospital!

General Hospital’s PCPD’s Delores Padilla is finally getting a hubby on-screen, after talking about her other half for quite some time!

ABC Soaps In Depth has learned that actor and model Christian Monzon has been cast in the role of Eddie Cabrera and will first be seen on-air the week of April 16th!

Monzon’s credit include roles on Shameless, Dollhouse, Entourage and CSI: NY, but many recognize his face and his body from many high-fashion campaigns and music videos including Dolce & Gabbana fragrance ads and videos with everyone from Jennifer Lopez to Mariah Carey!

So what do you think?  Looking forward to Christian mixing it up in Port Chuck?

JR , Keep in mind that john mcbain will change the sloppy police work that has been taking place at the port charles pcpd for a very long time.I keep thinking that Ron guy cop is the stripper killer I dont like or trust him.Is that his name anyway he is that cop guy that was or is a friend of dante.Never seen this Christian guy before But I must say he is easy on the eyes.

Keep in mind that as long as Maurice Benard is on GH, McBain doesn’t stand a chance of “winning”. What would they do with MB if McBain actually “won” and put Sonny behind bars? Until they say good bye to MB we all know how this story ends….Sonny walks free again. It’s so friggin old it’s ridiculous. It doesn’t take a genious to see that the new regime should do a complete make-over to GH to give it a fighting shot of staying on the air. Sonny and his mob just continue to drag this soap lower and lower in… Read more »

oooh, I hadn’t read it was going to be an actor/actress formerly on OLTL [gees Barbara T – you and I both know that list is gianormous! :-)] I suppose they mean someone recently on there, otherwise it could be Christian Slater or Tommy Lee Jones! ha well my guess than would be Trevor or Kassie — Trevor would make sense. Maybe John McBain catches a glimpse of him thru a window and rescues him and brings him back to LLanview and hey – Todd couldn’t have killed Victor cuz he’s alive and then Todd has charges dropped and is… Read more »

And forget about Kassie DePaiva (not that I want to). In ABC Soaps in Depth: “”Setting the record straight, DePaiva tells us that “my character was not invited to stay there, which I’m sure was based on story.” Which isn’t to say that somewhere down the line, that won’t change. “We’re not talking about Llanview anymore; we’re talking about Port Charles. If there’s not a place for Blair at GH, then there’s not a place for Blair at GH. I, personally, have no say in it whatsoever.” Should her phone ring, however, she’ll happily answer! “Would I like to come… Read more »

I hope you’re right, Christy. I hate that ABC teased us with Todd and Blair and then pulled the rug out. Until I see Blair back on GH, TnB ended for me on 1/13/12.

“Finally getting a hubby” is not quite the words I would use, Michael.

More like, “Uh! Can you believe they’re wasting our screen time and their money with another useless newbie no one has ever cared about, husband of another useless newbie no one has ever cared about?”

Patrick
Guest

agree with you about “newbies”… i’ve always liked robin christopher… as Sky… i wish they’d find story for her… she’s excellent as a quartermaine… great actress.. who, in my opinion is the best with Luke… as far as chemistry…. since laura. she can act. like her and tracy fighting… and Sky was also hot with Jax. scenes with monica, edward, and tracy… are a hoot.

Emily

I agree about the newbie. Why hitch a wagon to a uninteresting character? Delores’ character never took off, so to hire another newbie to accompany that? Doesn’t make sense.

Christy
Guest
Christy

you know, Robin Christopher, as Skye, was on OLTL for a couple years and stirred up a lot of trouble for Todd, Blair & Max, and on GH made a lot of trouble there…. she’d be a great trouble maker to bring to GH now that Todd is going to be on there and hopefully more visits from Blair! And the Quartermaine’s could use more “family” around, trouble maker that she is. Alice needs someone to spar with! te he he

Why is GH wasting time casting a husband for a character and a storyline we don’t care about? Why enhance Delores’s story? We don’t need another extraneous cast member who means nothing. Rather than waste money and limited screen time on another new guy, bring back a real character (a Q or Bobbie or Robert) that we are all chomping at the bit to see!

I thought we were seeing a change at GH. This isn’t it.

newbie is a hottie, hope they don’t make him into a stalker, that would suck, as for kassie not coming on board to GH, can people relax, nothing is written in stone, whose to say down the line she wont come on board, and the same for all other oltl characters. We can’t have them all come on board all at once, people need to chill, you all sound so desperate, let the show concentrate on the talent they have now, and as story dictates then others can come an play. Not everything has to be NOW or never, gee… Read more »

I completely forgot he was on OLTL two separate times 5 years apart! His long run, which is what is most remember was from 2001-2012, and yes prior to that he played Dr. Pierce Dorman on General Hospital, from 1996-1997, and prior to that he was on OLTL from 1994-1996. On GH, Dr. Dorman was a bigoted GH doctor who refused to treat Stone Cates for HIV, sued Monica Q for sexual harassment, had nurse Marilyn Cooper drug Sonny with heroin then murdered her, was into drug dealing, got Emily addicted to drugs as revenge on Monica breaking up with… Read more »

Christy,you did your homework and I agree with you and have been saying the same,on march 31 2012 at 7;05 pm.There is no way the fans are leaving because of the one life to live characters crossing over ,they have hardly been on and we are talking about 4 people so 4 people from another soap is going to upset the gh fans (Which I am)and they are willing to leave a soap they care about ,because they are from one life to live ,thats makes no sense to me,these same people were willing to watch boring cassandra maggie delories… Read more »

I’m open to the character AND a new character. OLTL, only character’s that are unlike anything GH has. Roxy, Victor, or David Haywood, AMC. A old character from the past or two is fine, those that have legacy to the show. But not focused on everything OLTL at GH. 7x > OLTL had it movement in time and GH ” STILL ” has their’s!

I’m concerned about GH’s ratings slump ever since the OLTL characters arrived. People can’t claim that their arrival has had no impact on GH’s declining ratings for the past three weeks. I don’t care that OLTL and GH are part of the “same ABC soap family”. There are two different shows with two different fanbases. And longtime GH fans don’t care a finger about OLTL characters because many of them never watched OLTL to begin with. They prefer to have GH veterans coming back to Port Charles instead. The crossover was a great idea. But this should have been temporary.… Read more »

well it could have been temporary for some people IF both soaps were still on. I do not believe for one second that bringing over actors from another Agnes Nixon soap once on ABC, is fatal for GH. Anything but. I’ve watched both soaps since they began. There have been so many actors, and characters, that have been on both soaps and even on all of Agnes’ soaps (sometimes several at the same time in crossover stories). I don’t think it really matters if they bring them over as the same characters that can liven things up at GH or… Read more »

The only dissapointment I have is like everybody else Delores is not really someone we are invested in now if he can act as good as he looks!!! By the way someone asked me where I read that Jack Wagner had turned down a GH offer because it was not contract Lynda Hirsch & Carolyn Hinsey both commented on it but that does not mean they were right! But ask yourself this would you really want to work with your ex wife again I don’t know maybe they still have a good relationship.

They can pop up at different times ,Seems that people are coming and going quickly in port charles these days ,that could be a bad or a good thing,I could work with my x we are still very good friends.Do they have any kids together ?if they do they should for the sake of the kids get along.

I don’t believe they have kids together. I thought about that when it was suggested Wagner’s X realife wife wld be coming back. I never heard mention of kids. Personally, I dont wish to either of them.

I am betting that the major news will be the arrival of Melissa Archer – Natalie, coming to GH. Clue was Sonny showing Jason the picture of her & Liam.

Have only caught a few episodes of GH and still having issues getting into it again (watched years & years ago before it became Sonny-Central). If they change the focus of the show I will probably start watching on a more regular basis.

Casting this actor is lost on me since I don’t even know the character Delores.

Melissa Archer would be wonderful. I missed Sonny showing the photo to Jason and will go back and look–GH doesn’t hold my attention every second. It’s funny what Michael Easton said in TV Guide about Natalie staying in Llanview because she would be safe and nothing bad ever happens there (wasn’t that the truth!): “I think it would be a lovely thing to have Melissa come in, to have that dynamic again and to see McBain in that fashion. But I can also see him wanting to protect his wife and child during this clean-up job in Port Charles, and… Read more »

Delores is rarely seen – she’s a cop that sits next to Dante, that apparently took the photos of his phone/computer to protect someone or because Johnny is coercing her to do bad things. She is also a storyline I fast forward thru myself! Took me a while to figure out who Delores was in the recaps. Oh, well. Some people I guess like that story line… others will just enjoy looking at the guy they got to play her husband for a while! 🙂

I thought the same Chaz–When McBain 1st showed Sam the pic of his family they didn’t show it. So that’s soap for we don’t know what’s going on w/Nat & Liam, don’t know if we can get the actors, so don’t want to show’em. Now…they showed and focused on the pic of Nat & Liam and McBain had a more detailed, sentimental call w/them, so I’m thinking their clues too. I wonder if that announcement is still on the table and if that’s what it is? Hoping for the same. I FF Lante, Skate, Steve & Olivia, never mind Delores… Read more »

I sure hope it is not Melissa Archer (Natalie) that they bring over from OLTL. For one thing She would end up working the police station and of course clued to John. We have Lulu who does that with Dante already. Only half the viewers even liked Natalie and John getting back together. Didn’t you all love the scenes with John and Alice. John is better off without Natalie. I would not mind if Sonny has her killed and Liam comes to PC.

Yes, I was HALF of that viewership that didn’t like Natalie so much. I just never cared for her. Loved her red hair (although color was added it it) but wasn’t crazy about her look, or character. Don’t know why. The people that really ‘ like’ her, are probably like me trying to figure out ‘ why ‘ people like me are not fond of her. ( I wouldn’t say don’t like) bc I have no reason to ‘dislike’ her. I didn’t mind that she got back with John. I didn’t like that Nalalie became a Buchanan, OR the storyline… Read more »

I wonder if the mystery casting scoop from OLTL could be that Melissa Archer could bring Natalie (along with Liam in tow!) to Port Charles and GH to reunite with Michael Easton and John McBain?

My money is on Ted King – he’s a veteran of both soaps – and a certain lovely black bird mentioned this a long time ago. He played (2) Alcazar’s on GH before he ever went to OLTL.

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.”

Photo:ABC

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.”

Photo: JPI

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.
