Former GH and B&B Star, Antonio Sabato Jr. To Launch ‘Conservative Movie Studio’

Photo: Getty

In a series of tweets on Thursday former soap opera heartthrob, Antonio Sabato Jr. (Ex-Jagger, General Hospital, and Ex-Dante, The Bold and the Beautiful) announced his plans to launch a conservative motion picture studio, for projects he says Hollywood would shy away from.

Antonio wrote: “We are putting together a plan to create a conservative movie studio for all patriots to do projects that Hollywood would never do,  No more blacklisting and no more injustice from the socialist’s elites.”

About an hour later, Sabato added in a follow-up tweet: “To all conservative producers who want to make a change this is the time, get in touch with me, and be part of our team.  Right now we are In pre-production with Trail Blazers our first in line for many more & first to start our studio.”

On Friday, Sabato tweeted on the response on his intent to create a conservative-based movie studio: “The amount of people being blacklisted in Hollywood is astounding. I have never received so much support and so much love and also wanting to be a part of my new venture with our new studio. Incredible times and we will do it together.”

Sabato has been a very staunch supporter of President Donald Trump and as he says ever since he declared his support of him at the 2016 Republican National Convention that he has been blacklisted in Hollywood and lost out on several projects.

Back in March, Antonio spoke to Variety where he revealed he had to ‘sell everything” to “pay all my debts”.   He went on to say, “I was blacklisted.  All my representatives left me, from agents to managers to commercial agents. I literally had to move, find a new job to survive and take care of my kids.  It’s been terrible. It’s mind-blowing. It’s a disgrace. It’s tough, because if you’re in that environment in Hollywood and you have something to say that they don’t like, they’re going to let you know.”

So, do you think of Antonio’s plans for his conservative movie studio, and how he relates he has been blacklisted from Hollywood since he showed his support for President Trump? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

I’m sure he can get bankrolling from Charles Koch or some other oligarch to fund movies that nobody’s going to be watching.

Remember that Ayn Rand “Atlas Shrugged” trilogy? Yeah, that really broke all the records at the box office, didn’t it?

But then, I’m the Devil, so I’ll probably watch these movies (assuming they ever actually exist) and treat them as comedy, just like I do the FundaMENTAList “Christian” propaganda movies (like those “Left Behind” flicks, which depicted my son, the Antichrist, as some sort of cartoon supervillain)

I am going to try very hard to be professional in this response. Mr. Sabato, Jr., has limited talent. Most of his success came from riding the sex symbol train. The reason he is being blacklisted is because he is being a complete idiot. His being a conservative has NOTHING to do with it. Believe however and vote however you want, that is your right as an American citizen, but to blindly support a human who cages children, ignores a killer pandemic and is a blatant racist shows that Mr. Sabato Jr.’s blacklisting is a consequence of his actions and… Read more »

I’ve heard this Antonio Sabato Jr. guy speak..
A bit sickening –
he is not right in the head..
Perhaps a Psychiatrist could help him.

I can not understand stand the minds of radicle people
but- other of the same mind can
so– I’m sure he will succeed ..

I hate to say this, but Antonio has no talent in Hollywood, this guy loves Trump. Antonio is a dirt bag and hates gays and is a racist. Antonio has not aged well, I never want to hear his name again.

Once I thought he was one of the hottest guys on tv. I was a teen,It was the time of CK ads and Melrose Piace. Then he did a couple of gay themed movie. He did full frontal scenes. I thought he was hot and brave. In the last few years,after reading his pathetic tweets about politics and life, I honestly believe he is not the smartest mind on the Planet. He lacks depth. Too much ego, not so much talent. Kimberlin Brown is a conservative and a Trumper, but she has talent, a sharp mind, sense of humor and… Read more »

That he’s right about what, though? I say more power to him if he can make this conservative studio idea work, but his whimpering about being “blacklisted” in Hollywood strikes me as just more of the usual boo-hoo-ing I’ve been hearing for a while now from conservatives who can’t handle social backlash now that they’re the ones on the receiving end rather than the ones dishing it out. Free speech is a Constitutionally guaranteed right, and he’s freely exercised it as far as I can tell–but free speech has never been (and was not intended by the Founding Fathers to… Read more »

Hollywood is made up of such a diverse group of talented and creative people from all walks of life who traditionally support and work side by side with one another to create art. I don’t think Mr. Sabato’s alienation from Hollywood has as much to do with his belief in conservatism as it does for his support of Donald Trump. There are many Republicans who do not support the current president and many people in Hollywood would not alienate them. Mr. Trump has very vocally said disparaging words against Blacks, Jews, Women, Full Figured Women, Mexicans, members of the LGBTQ+… Read more »

Reading the comments here and it saddens me that people who profess to have such open minds and preach inclusion are such hypocritical bigots. I’m not a Trump supporter but I am growing very weary of the vitriol of both sides. Y’all need to grow the F up and get on with your shallow lives.

NO ONE should be blacklisted for their political views. And that IS THE PROBLEM. Agree with Jeff that everyone needs to get a backbone and stop getting their feelings hurt. Grow up and realize that everyone has their own views and should be listened to. You don’t have to agree or to even follow them. Maybe a conservative studio would help offset this liberal cancel culture. Good luck Mr. Sabato! You are gonna need it with all these hypocrites.

Which brings me to my next question… after hearing gun nuts talk for decades about how they need to arm themselves in case of government tyranny, how come there’s not a single word from the NRA or any other such group when literal fascist mercenary thugs without a shred of legitimate authority are kidnapping US citizens in plain site on the streets of Portland??

America went into a toilet spiral in November 1980, and officially ceased to exist when the Supreme Court was allowed to overturn a Presidential election 20 years after that. The Orange Imbecile currently occupying the office (whose election was only about 1/666th of a percentage more legitimate than the Chimp installed by the Supreme Court) isn’t even competent enough to put up with the pretense. This year started out with the opportunity to elect a decent mortal who might have restored the REAL America (the one that FDR built and started the best 50 years of the USA’s existence, at… Read more »

Antonio, good luck but you would probably have to have cardboard cutouts in most of your movies since the Hollywood zombies would never cross each other! People can laugh but those same fake celebs covered up Epstein and Weinstein cruel acts for years to protect their careers! Its no laughing matter!

Timmm…The Hollywood-Weinstein coverup wouldn’t surprise me. And how many others of them had their own “audition couch”? But I hadn’t heard about Hollywood celebs covering up Epstein (and in my mind, his Bonnie to his Clyde who is even worse since she is a woman herself). But I have heard about and seen pictures of other very highly placed, “prominent” people who seemed to know both pretty well. I still haven’t been sold he committed suicide while in jail.

Sabato can pursue any career opportunity he wants, let the marketplace decide. But what I’m wondering is why there needs to be a CONSERVATIVE movie studio, or any other socially tagged one. Isn’t there enough of this going on in the country at large? I’ve been watching a lot of TCM lately, and there have been several famous and revered actors who were Republican conservatives, some who served in the military. Didn’t seem to hurt their careers. And then there was Reagan. But if you really want to get into Hollywood hardcore blacklisting I hope we never see the likes… Read more »

Reagan was actually a Democrat when he was an actor. No seriously, there’s a recording you can find on YouTube of him campaigning for Hubert Humphrey, Harry Truman, and other Democrats of the day. Really mind blowing stuff for those who only know the right wing icon of the 1980s.

Don’t know exactly when he went wrong, but Nancy & her father probably had a lot to do with it. They turned him to the “dark side”.

Some things are out of our control, and I thank the fans for your support through it all!  Until then, I revel in new beginnings and everything the future has in store. 🙌🏼✨Love you all,  Sally spectra out 👩🏼‍🦰 ✌🏽”

Dominic Zamprogna On His Return To General Hospital: “So Great To Be back With My Family!!”

The big surprise on Monday’s General Hospital in its first episode back amid the coronavirus pandemic, featured in it none other than Dominic Zamprogna and his return to the show as Dante Falconeri.

In it, viewers see Dante still struggling from his PTSD while at a WSB facility in Geneva, Switzerland at the top of the episode.

We later see Dante writing a letter to his mother, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero), that he just saves and tucks at the end of his bed, never meaning he as he says to send it, in order to keep his family and loved ones safe from him.

Zamprogna was last seen on GH back in March of 2019.  Dominic originated the role of Dante back in 2009 and had stayed with the series for 9 years before deciding to previously exit the show.  Over the last several months, Dominic has been public about wanting the opportunity to work with his GH co-stars again and how he missed them,

After today’s episode of GH aired, the series Twitter account, tweeted: “Welcome Home” to which the actor expressed: “Thank you!! So great to be back with my family!!”

This sets the stage for Dante to get well, head back to Port Charles, only to find the love of his life Lulu (Emme Rylan), involved with another man, Dustin (Mark Lawson), or who knows what else may be on the horizon.

So, what do you think will happen next for Dante? Glad Dominic is back on GH? Comment below.
