One of the most famous sports commentators out there, ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith visited the set of his favorite show, General Hospital this week!

Smith, who has spoken about his love for the characters of Sonny (Maurice Benard) and Carly (Laura Wright)  on his talk show First Take, is making another appearance on the ABC daytime drama series, and the news all unfolded on social media.  The last time Smith appeared on GH was back in 2007 during the Metro Court disaster as a reporter covering the long hostage crisis!  This time, we don’t know what story brings Smith back into the fold, and if he will play himself, or someone else.

Maurice Benard posted a video of himself with Smith from the set.  The Daytime Emmy-winning actor asked Smith how excited he was to be back, and Stephen A. admitted he was a bit nervous.  Then Benard said, “You’re not going to disappoint  … you’re going to be the greatest. I guarantee you that.”    Later, Maurice posted a tweet that said, “I had the best time working with @stephenasmith today. He’s truly a natural. Not Denzel yet, but getting there. ”

However, Stephen A. was also excited to tweet a photo with Laura Wright which he posted with the message:  “Damn, I’m a lucky man. On the set of General Hospital right now and look who decided to take a pic with Me?!!”   To which Laura responded, “So great seeing you! Come back soon!”  In addition, Smith was impressed with meeting GH’s Matt Cohen (Griffin) when he tweeted, “This man knows his boxing!”

So, how will Stephen A. Smith figure into Sonny and Carly’s world coming up on GH? We will keep you posted when the airdate is revealed!

Great news! Love him!

SAS is very enthusiastic and passionate about GH. He was on a late night talk show a few years back and brought up how long he’s been watching GH and proceeded to breakdown all the current storylines at the time. The man was there to talk about sports but spent nearly five minutes talking about the happenings in Port Charles.

I think it was last year around this time when the co-hosts of SAS’s morning show on ESPN decided to surprise him and Maurice Benard came out from the back. He was beyond thrilled!

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
