Wilson Bethel (Ex-Ryder) continues his hot primetime television career with news this week that he is set to play part of a core family that Annalise (Viola Davis) counsels in the second half of the season of ABC’s How to Get Away with Murder!

According to TV Line,  Bethel, the former star of The Young and the Restless and Hart of Dixie, has landed the role of Charles Mahoney, the Ivy League-educated son of Wallace played by Adam Arkin.  Wallace is said to be a Warren Buffet type who’s quiet and observant, but knows how to command a room when he wants.  And looks for Roxanne Hart to play Sylviam, the tough yet distinguished and smart socialite mother of sexy Charles!

Look for these three to make their first appearances  on HTGAWM when the series returns starting on February 11th.  In addition, the report goes on to say that it is possible Bethel and his on-screen parents may carrying over into season three once the show is greenlighted with an official renewal.

HTGWM showrunner Pete Nowak previewed on how the new trio play into story: “The Mahoney family plays a really big part in a legal case in our last six episodes. They’re very wealthy people. It’s a murder case, and it involves Annalise in a big way.”  One other thing Nowak noted was that the Mahoney clan is in no way connected to any of Annalise’s prior clients, or to the people in her inner circle.

So, what do  you think of Wilson’s new role on How to Get Away with Murder? Will you be checking him out on the series?  Comment below!

Good, bad or indifferent, soaps are the best platform for an actor to practice his or her craft.

Many actors can make it in daytime but have a hard time crossing over to movies and television.

Absolutely. I dont hold a higher regard than people who act on soaps or do theater. It is nice to see Hollywood open their eyes and realize how tough it is to read so much dialogue everyday and be different! These actors are so gifted! Thats why I put soap starts a little bit higher on the chain than theater people because EVERYDAY a soap star has to do a whole new script and remember why he or she got to this part in their characters life.

In his message, Rikaart shared: “I’m doing fantastic, easily like 95 percent better than I was the last time I made one of these messages. The only thing is, I still have a little bit of a lingering cough and I guess I have to work on rebuilding my strength and my energy a bit.  But feeling really good, stronger, and better every day, and wanted to let you all know, first and foremost.

And secondly, I wanted to thank you all for the incredibly kind and generous messages of support you sent my way which really lifted my spirits at a time when they needed to be lifted, ‘cause there was a scary couple of days there.”

Henson) and their dysfunctional family will resolve now that the series has had to scrap two of their planned episodes in their final season?  The sixth and final season was scheduled to run for a total of 20 episodes.

However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, the production shutdown left them with only 18 episodes tht could be completed.

Happy 57th Anniversary Today to General Hospital

ABC’s daytime drama, General Hospital turns 57 today, and remains the current longest-running soap opera on the air.  GH debuted back on April 1, 1963.

The show was created by the husband-and-wife team of Frank and Doris Hursley.  Originally, the soap was not given a name of a particular town in which the drama of the hospital was set in.  However, that all changed in the 1970’s when GH was set in Port Charles.

GH expanded from a 30-minute show to a 45-minute show on July 26, 1976 and eventually went to a full-hour where it has remained back on January 16, 1978.

Throughout its decades on the air, GH was the impetus for two spin-offs; Port Charles, (which aired from 1997-2003) and primetime’s GH: Night Shift (2007-2008),

The show went through many ups and downs over its history, but things changed dramatically for the better, when by the end of the 1970’s and facing cancellation, ABC brought in executive producer, Gloria Monty to steer the ship.  Monty created supercouple Luke and Laura played by Tony Geary and Genie Francis, and opened the show up with exciting location shoots, and from then on GH has remained a firm mainstay in the daytime line-up.

Today, Frank Valentini is the series executive producer, and the soap is co-written by the head writing team of Dan O’Connor and Chris Van Etten.
