The brother of the late Patrick Swayze, soap alum, Don Swayze is set to appear on General Hospital starting this week on the January 5th episode.

Don, who previously appeared on Y&R as Shawn Roberts, and also that of a pawnbroker on Days of our Lives, will be appearing on to the GH canvas as a homeless man named Buzz.

According to the latest issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Buzz will be involved in a story featuring Julian (William deVry) when he makes his debut.

Swayze’s other TV roles have included parts on: True Blood and Carnivale to name just a few.

So, how to you think Buzz will tie-in to Julian’s story? Did this homeless man know some intel into who planted the bomb that ultimately killed Morgan, and whose intended target was the mobster himself? Comment below.

Buzz? LOL. Why is it that thugs and homeless souls have these ‘hard’ names?…. for lack of a better word.
Perhaps, Buzz saw something or someone fidgeting around Julian’s car? Will he use this info to extort money from the culprit?….. or will he go to Julian with the info for money.
Two-edged sword! The end result for dear Buzz will be the same: MONEY. By the same token, his mouth may be permanently shut by whomever planted the bomb.

I am so sorry, Jimmy, that you still haven’t found a way….some help to get you out of your financial situation.
Oh, please seek help, Jimmy. As I told you before, there are people to whom you may speak about this. A priest? A pastor? I truly wish you the best, my friend….mostly, I wish I could help you, somehow. How?
Keep posting, I look forward to knowing if things get better for you.

That’s true. He is going to be paid, to keep his mouth shut about some harsh truth. And it will obviously be about Julian and the car bomb.

Celia

Connor….What if Tom planted the bomb and he needed to be eliminated by the one who hired him, after the deed was done? The one in power, he who put this in motion, could not run the risk of having Tom be questioned by the cops and expose him, whoever he is.

Maybe Buzz will have a pottery scene with Emily Quartermaine!

Good point about the naming of the homeless man. Good grief – someone actually got paid to come up with “Buzz”. Likely not a good sign of the quality of writing that will be associated with this storyline. I really wish the Julian and Alexis storylines would move along. They are really dragging lately and are dull. Secrets, secrets…good grief, let’s move on already.

Celia
Celia

Well, Max. It doesn’t look like it will happen soon. Julian has to work his magic, first and foremost. He’s a good guy, now. Pathetic.
He needs to convince everyone that he held his wife at knife-point for her own good. That’s how screwed up this story is.

I don’t know who Shawn Roberts or Don Swayze are, so no big deal for me , if it’s supposed to be a big deal that is.

Celia

Hey, SuzieQ….have you ever seen DIRTY DANCING? Don is/was Patrick’s brother.

Timmm

Its funny, when you see celebrity brothers and sisters, they seem one chromosome off from being THAT person.

hey CC !
I seen sone of it.. it is really old..
It was sorta disco stuff ??

Looks like he will be a bad guy so I might like him lol .. 🙂

Celia
Celia

LOL, su… the movie is a year younger than I am. Yes, it may be before our time; but age of something great is only relative.
My grandmother had a dance studio in the city, and believe me, those dance moves never go out of style. I do think disco was all the rage in the late 70’s…..
You know; SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and stuff? The Brothers Gibb ( BG’s).
So, I don’t know if DIRTY DANCING fits that category, as the theme was based and set in the 50’s. The genre in the movie is actually salsa, cha-cha-cha and such…
Yes, SuzieQ, Buzz’s type will probably prove to be right up your alley…..Lol….
I’m with you….I like the bad boys. …..just depends on whom it is. I will judge after I see Buzz in action.

He sure looks like his late brother Patrick which is hard to look at. Hope the makeup artists do change his scrubby looks. Other than this comment, I am not familiar with his acting career so will reserve further comments until I see his acting ability.

yeah, right… don’t blink too fast… The fabulous Baker brothers are both gone?

what the hell

these two actors had potential

what was the point of Seth Baker beyond his total HOTTED OUT !

Seth Baker as played by: Michael Rodrick NEEDS to return… on contract

This is a trend on GH, we get teased with these good actors who come and go and we are stuck with Nathan, Lulu, Jordan and Andre! I love that guy Winston who seems to be Olivia Jerome’s right hand man.

Celia
Celia

Ah-ha, Timmmy. So, is Olivia Jerome the owner of those hands? (I have no clue as to whom she may be. A sister?).
I figured those were too small and delicate ( but lethal, nonetheless?) to belong to a man. And, too young to belong to Helena. I thought Tom was involved with the bomb, as well, and used as a scapegoat.
What about Nelle? Could she be behind this sudden makeshift organization, devised to get Julian off the hook? Too young?:

Celia
Celia

That should read “those HANDS were too small….”. Sorry.

Connor AvidSoapFan

I am thinking “Buzz” might have witnessed something while being out on the streets. Maybe he secretly witnessed Alexis hitting Julian with her car, and running away and just leaving him their. Maybe he witnessed something about the car bomb in Julian’s car. Maybe he secretly knows that Morgan is really alive somewhere.

Celia
Celia

That’s a very good premise, as well, Connor. Hadn’t thought of that. Lots of possibilities, which are not one iota far-fetched for a soap. A last-minute damage-control job will be dug up.
..hey, Liz’s rapist ( forgot is name) could be blamed for planting the bomb.
Regardless, Buzz is most-likely up to his neck in this. But, to be honest with you, I am not enjoying this run-around stuff. This story is not having any effect on me, one way or the other.
The idea that Julian is holding Alexis mentally ‘hostage’ is a turn off. I am not taken by the fact that a woman is once again at the mercy of a man….especially by a deviant mongrel such as Julian and his ilk.

Timmm
Timmm

I agree, Alexis was so strong AND look at the two main writers on the show, WOMEN!

Celia
Celia

@Timmm.
Right, Timmmy. These writers should cower in shame for putting Alexis, as a woman, in this position…
Then again, those fans who want these two back together will say that Julian is just looking out for her by parking himself in her house.’Gimme’ a break!! Everything else has failed; thus, the first thing he should have done was get Alexis’ children involved….not just hang around, in her face, hoping she’ll take him back. So freaking smug.
Well, I hope Sam ( once she comes down from the clouds) does something, considering she does suspect her mother is drinking…..habitually.
And, ‘not for nothing’, but Sonny and Carly make me just as sick. He is made to look like the victim? Lordy Lord; what’s next? Sonny turned monk? He shoud be castrated first.
Whatever it is that Nelle has it in her head to do, I hope she succeeds in pulverizing the Corinthoses. Sonny the sacrificial lamb? Sure; that’ll happen when two Sundays come together. Sonny, Ava and Julian always manage to swim back to shore from the deepest, shark-infested waters. But, at least, Ava is something to watch!!
This is why, my Timmmy, I welcome Valentin, regardeless how ruthless he may prove to be. This guy has something sooo appealing, I look forward to his scenes. What’s his real story? So many hints and innuendos steer us in the direction of darkness where Valentin is concerned. Yet, I wonder…….

Celia
Celia

Did Alexis kill Tom ( got his name, lol)? Is this where the story is going? I cannot believe this. I hope my mind is working overtime….haven’t ‘they’ done enough damage to Alexis?
I believe Franco, with the newly Shakespearean look, when he told Liz he did not kill Tom. So….

Connor AvidSoapFan
Connor AvidSoapFan

Celia, after seeing yesterday’s show, it appears that you are right 🙂 The scene at the end of the show yesterday when Alexis was remembering (in her mind) that Tom was probably about to rape her / abuse her in some way shape and or form… And the fact that this scene happened right after Franco was talking on the phone with somebody at a bar I believe, about Tom being murdered. I think that helped to foreshadow who really did what to Tom. But, now it seems, like Alexis probably had a good enough of a reason to “kill” Tom… She probably thought he was going to do to her, what he did to Elizabeth years ago, and Alexis knows how much trauma she has been through already in her life… and she wanted to avoid the potentially inevitable… so in defense… she probably killed Tom before he could try and get away with what it seemed he wanted to do.

Good “maybe’s” all!

Celia
Celia

I guess, Connor. But, i don’t think Alexis knows who Tom really is. Does she?
Perhaps, she simply tried to protect herself; and being drunk out of her senses, she remembers foggy bits and pieces.
Another reason could be that Alexis would be shamed…..losing all hopes of regaining her licence, albeit I cannot be so sure that Alexis is that beguilingly cunning.
However, Connor….I am still somewhat befuddled. Would TPTB really do this to Alexis?
What really puts a thorn in my side ( and just as I thought and suggested, along with others), is the fact that Julian will be redeemed. Oh, yeah….he really wasn’t going to slit his wife’s throat. Oh, no, no!! He was only going through the motions which had been predicated by a higher, evil power. The guy with the hands….you know the bejewelled, fingers which slapped the table? Those arms looked to be encased in Louis XVI frothy sleeves??
This is so reminiscent of ‘Newman hands’.
I am assuming Julian will spill all to Sam? And, everyone will hug and kiss and sing ‘Kumbaya’. How sweet! Again, the bad guy gets away with his crimes due to the volatile writing…..Bah!!

Swayze was very good on the show! Why not keep him?

LISTEN TO THE REPLAY: Soap Nation Live! With Special Guests: Y&R’s Joshua Morrow, DWTS: Juniors & GH’s Hudson West & B&B’s Joe Lando

Listen to “Soap Nation Live! October 2018” on Spreaker.

If you missed Thursday night’s broadcast of Soap Nation Live! with Michael Fairman you can now listen to the replay right here in audio player above!

This episode was given to the gents in soaps as Michael welcomed his very special guests: The Young and the Restless Joshua Morrow (Nick Newman), Dancing with the Stars: Juniors and General Hospital’s Hudson West (Jake), and The Bold and the Beautiful, and One Life to Live and Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman favorite, Joe Lando (Judge Craig McMullen).

During this fun night of chat, Joshua weighed-in on the Shick wedding that went bust, when Sharon told Nick at the altar that she knows he had sex with Phyllis.  Morrow, who will celebrate his 25th year as Nick Newman in early 2019 chimed in what the future for the stat-crossed couple may hold, and how he has enjoyed showing Nick’s dark side of late, plus he revealed one scene he felt uncomfortable with that he would not play, the ladies over the years in Nick’s life, and when asked by a listener of his memories of the late, great Jeanne Cooper (Katherine Chancellor), Joshua shared some fun and poignant remembrances. He also addressed the status of Doug Davidson at the CBS daytime drama, and hopes that the writers will find a way to utilize the Y&R vet in the future.

Next, Hudson West’s joined the podcast where he gave listeners the inside scoop on what it has been like to be one of the 12 celebrity kids competing in the first-ever Dancing with the Stars: Juniors, which debuts Sunday at 8PMEST in a two-hour season premiere on ABC.  Hudson talked on how he has been learning the dance moves with his young pro dance partner and Dancing with the Stars pro mentor, how he deals with nerves before performing his dance routines and more.  General Hospital fans who know of Hudson’s Daytime Emmy-nominated performance of Jake Webber, Elizabeth and Jason’s son, got some interesting tidbits when he talked about working with Rebecca Herbst, Steve Burton and more, and how much he loves being on the show.

The final guest of the night was Joe Lando.  Prior to bringing Joe on the air, Michael played a classic clip from Megan’s death on One Life to Live from the 90’s, where Joe as Jake Harrison performed one of the saddest and most memorable scenes in soaps with his then acting partner, Jessica Tuck.  Joe then revealed when he was on Soap Nation Live that it has been over 20 years since he had heard the scene, and was still moved by it.  Lando who is now appearing as Judge McMullen on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful teased there could be a love interest around the corner for the judge, as well as some retribution for his ruling in the custody case of Will Spencer, because of a favor called in by Ridge.  Lando also talks about his time on the hit primetime series, Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman as Byron Sully, and shared more about his time on One Life to Live working with the likes of: Erika Slezak, Bob Woods, and Tuck.

Last, during out Game Show segment, a lucky caller won two VIP tickets to the Star Struck Fan Event Fall Festival in Alexandria, Virginia featuring members of the cast of Days of our Lives, as well as a Y&R goodie bag; which includes a personalizes autographed picture of Joshua Morrow, after answering correctly some Nick Newman trivia!
