ABC comedy sitcom star Cristela Alonzo from the series named after her, Cristela (Fridays at 8:30PMEST) will be seen on an upcoming very special Valentine’s Day episode of General Hospital, it was announced today by the network.

Alonzo is admittedly a long time fan of the daytime drama series, and so the producers and writers have worked her into the story where she will play Port Charles’ Assistant District Attorney Natalia Rodriguez, who works for District Attorney Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner).  In story, while at the PCPD, she has some questions for Det. Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) regarding a recent break-in.  Realizing it is Valentine’s Day, they later open up about their loved ones.

In addition as previously announced, Baby Daddy duo Derek Theler and Melissa Peterman will also guest star on the Valentine’s episode as well with Derek playing a colleague of Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson), and Melissa playing an old friend of Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCiero) from Bensonhurst. 

What do you think about Cristela making an appearance in Port Charles as Assistant DA Natalia Rodriguez?  The upcoming GH Valentine’s Day episode? Comment below!

Because having HER own show on ABC is not enough?

I hate stunt casting. I still remember how terrible Katie Couric was when she was on to show her fun side before the launch of her canceled talk show.

What is wrong with using some of the soap actors they already have?!

yaaa!
ABC having crossovers of Cristela and Baby Daddy is a very good sign that ABC is investing in GH and wants it to prosper ..

It is promoting General Hospital ! Exposing it to millions..

The guests will be a in and out ….(nothing to be upset over..

Katie wasnt an actor…of course Ryan Paevey isnt one too…lol…seriously, this Cristela is an actress and will probably do a better job than Katie…i see nothing wrong with this so-called stunt casting…its an actor doing an acting job and its good publicity for both shows…besides many actors from movies, primetime, music and stage have made appearances in daytime soaps…if a daytime star can do primetime or a movie whatever and we can congratulate them it should be no different if someone who does primetime or something else in the entertainment industry makes an appearance on daytime tv…in this case its just an actor taking on just another acting job…sure, id like to see many GH actors on more especially LC as Monica but like i said there is nothing wrong with someone making a guest appearance…this is only a short visit…its not like they are taking someone else’s place…this has been done for years with Carol Burnett, Liz Taylor, Sammy Davis just to name a few…no one called it stunt casting…maybe its a publicity gimmick…no big deal…every show morning, noon or night do what they can to attract fans to their show…thats Hollywood!…Peace!!!

I know she’s really funny, jimh. If she can bring some of that humor with her, then I guess it’s ok. She can’t be any worse than some.

Amen to that, Chrystie! Sounds about as interesting as that ridiculous Shonda stunt awhile back. If we must have some ABC stars visit Port Charles, how about Ioan Gruffudd from “Forever?” Now THAT would add some excitement…or even “Richard Castle” himself, ex OLTL-er, Nathan Fillion! Then maybe I could be on-board with this annoying habit of foisting the network’s pets upon GH. (And while we’re at it, if ABC is so keen to send their prime timers over to the show, then ship Jonathan Jackson from Nashville to reprise his Lucky for a bit.)

i think its great, look, abc family and abc primetime stars appearing on abc daytime sister show they are part of the abc family! i personally think it would of been better for them to play the characters they play on their shows, and play into the characters existing in the same “universe” like marvel does with their shows and movies. I personally don’t think the three actors are big enough to attrack any one from their shows to sample GH, but if they would of play their characters then maybe their “viewers” from their shows would of sample GH just to follow their characters.

Playing their own characters would be a legal matter..
ABC is crossing the ‘actor’ not the character..
They can not use the characters only the actors..

jimh(leave it to beaver)

Both shows are abc…it wouldnt be a big issue if she played her character…look at gh…several characters from oltl came over to gh and played their characters with no legal problems…oops…my bad…guess there was legal issues or PP wouldnt have taken abc to court…lol

Whatever it takes to get GH publicity. I’m sure Inside Edition or Entertainment Tonight will have something on the crossover.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Max Gail Turns In Another Emmy-Worthy Performance As Mike’s Battle With Alzheimer’s Takes Its Toll

For any of us who have seen our loved ones deteriorate right before our eyes, due to the horrific affects of Alzheimer’s, and have been witness to their confusion, dementia, angry outbursts, frightened looks, and uncontrollable tears, yesterday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a stark reminder of how this disease is a gut-punch to those afflicted and their family members.

For several months, GH viewers saw a bit less of Mike; played brilliantly by recent Daytime Emmy Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, Max Gail.  And smartly, the writers have taken the time to advance Mike’s condition …. as at this point he doesn’t recognize his son, his family, his friends, and more.  For Mike, he is living in the past spirally backward and downward.

When Dev (Ashton Arbab) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) go to visit Mike at Turning Woods, it’s clear  how much he is suffering.  When Dev plays a checkers game with Mike it seems to calm him down, but when Sonny (Maurice Benard) enters, all hell breaks loose.  Mike thinks his son is actually one of their mortal enemies Joe Scully.

Earlier, at the Corinthos home, Michael (Chad Duell) sees that Sonny is considering entering his father in a clinical trial. Sonny says he knows it won’t cure the disease, but hopes the drugs in the trial can slow its progression.  In a key question, any family member needs to ask themselves, Michael asks Sonny to think first, if this is the man Mike would want to be?  Michael shares that Mike is no longer himself and sadly, there is no coming back from that.

All this becomes more poignant when Sonny sees first-hand how far Mike has slid.  Will Sonny be able to come to terms with losing Mike to Alzheimer’s?  How will he deal with it?  Gail’s partner in this entire storyline has been GH icon, Maurice Benard, who delivers poignant work throughout this story in very contained, emotional moments of deep hurt and pain, as Sonny watches the father he knew become lost in himself and to others.

Watch the key scenes below from yesterday’s GH below featuring Gail.  Then, let us know, do you think Max could end up in the running for another Daytime Emmy for his work?  Comment below.

A Friz Holiday Miracle On GH?

ABC and General Hospital released a promo for the week of December 9th which features Franco (Roger Howarth) undergoing the mind-mapping reversal procedure that would restore his memory from that of Drew Cain’s back to Franco Baldwin.

But, as viewers saw on last Friday’s cliffhanger, Peter (Wes Ramsey) is trying to stop Dr. Maddox (Anthony Montgomery) from performing the procedure on Franco by ordering a hit on him.

In the promo, Elizabeth (Rebecca Hersbt) waits by her husband’s side hoping he will return to her and remember the love they share.  As well,  Cameron (William Lipton) prays with her that Franco will come back to them so they can be a family again in time for the holiday season.

Watch the teaser below.

Then, let us know if you are hoping Franco returns and that he is no longer Drew Cain in the comment section, or are you hoping for a different procedural outcome when he wakes up?

Paging Dr. Griffin Munro! Matt Cohen Makes A Return Visit To GH

Looks like a medical crisis will bring Matt Cohen (Griffin Munro) back to General Hospital today on Friday’s episode and next week on upcoming episodes of the ABC daytime drama series.

In addition, we wonder if Cohen might appear in scenes with Maura West, who’s Ava Jerome is checked into Shadybrook trying to deal with her emotional state, which unbeknownst to her is being caused by Nikolas Cassadine (Marcus Coloma).

As GH fans know, Cohen first came on to the GH scene back in 2016, but departed the series earlier in 2019.

Meanwhile, Matt has landed a gig on Entertainment Tonight as one of their correspondents and anchors while continuing to do directing, and acting projects.

What will bring Griffin back to Port Charles? Happy to see Matt again on GH? Comment below.
