Word today from CBS Soaps in Depth has former General Hospital bad guy, Bruce Weitz (Ex-Anthony Zacchara) slated to appear on The Young and the Restless!

Weitz will be appearing as the character of Barry, beginning on the Wednesday April 17th episode!  However according to SID, “This will a much shorter stint than his time on GH. Weitz is only scheduled to appear in three episodes. ”

So Y&R fans, who do you think Weitz’s Barry will be involved with Genoa City? Are you cool with this casting? Or are you going to feel that Weitz just got the part because he has worked with current Y&R EP, Jill Farren Phelps when she was at the helm of General Hospital?  Whatever the reason for the casting, there is no doubt that Weitz is certainly an exceptional actor to have in any cast …  on any soap!

Love Bruce Weitz, he’s done countless shows. Glad he will be in Genoa City but definitely should be more than three episodes.

I do hope Sharon has a brother and it is Dylan. Rumors go that Doris had an affair with Dylans dad many years ago and did not tell Sharon. I love this idea and i bet Bill Bell would alo. Sharon is the only main star of the show with no siblings! Her best friend Drucilla we beg for her return every damn day but nothing! Does this show care what the fans who have bben there since 1973 think??? I love Shadam they need a son not this Chelsea crazy women recast and sent her on her way to… Read more »

Not all of us are clamoring for the return of Drucilla. 🙂 Anyway, I think the return of Drucilla, as played by Victoria Rowell is much bigger than giving the “fans what they want.” The backstage turmoil was probably just too much, but they could always try and recast, I suppose. I agree that Sharon needs some family. Dylan would make sense because he did not grow up with a silver spoon in his mouth like the rest of the Genoa City characters. I REALLY like that the show has a MAN. Not a male, but a MAN who knows… Read more »

I don’t know. I hope it does turn out that Sharon and Dylan had the same father. Maybe this will be a old buddy of Dylans dad?

That would be GREAT if Sharon is Dylans brother! Maybe this will be the uncle that knows the truth and Doris had an affair with Dylans father.

Bruce is great and they are lucky to get him! Could be an associate of Leslie’s father or the congressman or Dylan’s dad.

Is there more mystery to Dylan’s dad to come because I thought he just passed away today and that actor was not Bruce Weitz.

Jessicia

Sharon and Dylan siblings 🙂

I have heard the rumors of that, Jessicia, but I guess that would mean that the guy who just passed away was not Dylan’s biological father? I did not watch Y&R when Sharon came to Genoa City so I don’t know her history other than it was rough and her mother is in another town in a wheelchair.

Maybe the congressman is Leslies real father and this is the real reason the man she thought was her biological father killed her mother after finding out the truth. Bruce W. could be a hired hit man who shoots the congressman and in his hospital bed he will confess to Leslie that he is her real father. Its just an idea.

maybe he is a friend of congressman wheelers…………..

I hope this page does not become overloaded with “Friends of Jill” comments because, like it or not, THIS man can act. He was wonderful as Anthony Zacchara as well as on HILL STREET BLUES.

If they are smart they will make him recurring in some capacity.

He will probably figure into the story about Leslie’s criminal Dad

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

Once the secret was out on her appearance at the end of Friday’s episode,  Samms shared on Twitter: “She’s alive…!”

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
