General Hospital's FLUKE Makes THE SOUP: "You Don't Deserve My Donuts!"

Courtesy/E!

Courtesy/E!

Fluke aka the fake Luke Spencer (Tony Geary) has given Joel McHale and E’s The Soup some material on last night’s episode!

General Hospital is no stranger to The Soup, where often times the satirical series has some fun at some of the antics of GH’s characters or their storylines! Here was the set-up:  Joel showed a GH clip of Fluke telling Tracy (Jane Elliot): “You can suck the joy out of a donut!” and that was juxtaposed with a clip of Fluke coming on to Kiki (Kristen Alderson) where he says to her, “What you need is a dose of Dr. Sugar!  What you need is a real man!”  While he is all over her, Kiki kicks him in the nuts to which Fluke angrily replies, “You don’t deserve my donuts!”

Watch the clip from The Soup after the jump! Did you think taken out of context it was funny?  What do you think of Fluke now?  Let us know!

    I luv this Luke, it is relief from the same ‘ol..
    I bet Tony and cast are laughing their azz off back stage and having fun with it..

    Some soap fans are extremely serious while the actors are having fun/are not all that serious about it all ….

    When you can’t have fun watching a soap then one should tune out and read a book ..
    It is entertainment, cry, laugh, wonder, sigh, but enjoy..
    Anyways, I find humor in Fluke!! Tony is knocking it outta the park..
    ((he needed a break from Luke to come alive once again ..

      ITA! It’s time Tony got some material to be a bad ass! He is doing great just like the pro he is because this character makes my skin crawl! Bravo Tony!

      It’s one thing to have fun it’s another thing to become a joke.

      I think GH’s ratings would be better if they concentrated on producing a quality daytime drama rather than doing camp and schtick to get a mention on a cable show that has a very small audience.

      Whatever they are going for, maybe it’s to attract younger viewers, it won’t work. There are too many better options on broadcast, cable and online for people. My guess is that most young women, who might even enjoy camp, are probably repulsed by seeing a young girl have to kick a lecherous 70 year old man in the nuts. Is this GH or Benny Hill?

      The suits at ABC would be better off trying to fix the show’s writing and poor continuity than spend their time trying to shut down speech that criticizes their bad product. I can appreciate their obligation and allegiance to those who work on the show, but they also have an obligation to put out a product that is worthy of the name General Hospital and one that will generate the most revenue for the network. The type of show that GH has devolved into is not it.

        Not really a good thing when you are made fun of on The Soup.

        Love him or loathe him, FLuke is rapidly wearing out his welcome in Port Charles with his odious escapades. I only hope the wizened priapic predator’s jig will soon be up, and we discover the true identity of this impersonating miscreant….particularly for Kiki’s sake! I’m no great fan of KA’s character, but Puke’s increasingly pervy advances upon her person are really a discomfort to watch. It’s a shame that the girl can’t confide her tribulations with this freak to Mama Ava. She would do far more than knee his “donuts”….probably permanently alter them with her trusty pistol!

      Well said, su0000, I agree 100%!

      I’m getting a kick out of Fluke. Tony Geary had been hanging around with nothing to do on the show lately, so this is giving him something fun and different to play, and he’s taking the ball and running with it. I’m really enjoying the storyline, and I’m looking forward to seeing where it goes next.

      • Shay

        April 26, 2014 at 2:19 pm

        Nobody is enjoying this deviant departure from the Luke we all know more than AG…that is highly apparent. He’s having the time of his life playing the creepy, sex-crazed curmudgeon to the hilt. No doubt the more salacious aspects of the character were his idea, too. But enough is enough…..

    Luke desperately needs a new haircut.. I know this style is what’s current but it just makes him look like a disheveled rooster.

    Fluke is wearing a mask! It was obvious today. Im now not so sure this is Bill Eckert but rather Jerry Jacks. Jerry would come on to Brit,Kiki,Liz etc. Jerry is evil (although he has a heart and i personnaly love him) hmmm i love that this storyline has me guessing!

    • andrew hass

      April 24, 2014 at 4:23 pm

      Plus before Jerry left the last time the show did touch upon a connection that he had with Julian because he helped Jerry escape.Plus Jerry knows he can’t step in Port Charles as himself or he’ll be arrested on the spot.So it makes sense that he would have to impersonate someone else to move around Port Charles freely.Plus i think Anthony Geary is enjoying himself because he may know he’s not playing the real Luke and knows the fans will forgive Luke later when they learn the truth.

    • harry

      April 24, 2014 at 5:11 pm

      I think it would be incredibly boring and anticlimatic if it turns out be Jax.
      The fans are really unhappy with this storyline–Fluke has sucked the joy out of doughnuts and Luke would never had done such a thing.

    • rebecca1

      April 24, 2014 at 5:20 pm

      I would be shocked if it were Jerry; he’s never been seen as a womanizer let alone a rapist. Doesn’t “feel” like Jerry to me at all…

      On another note, it is completely unfathomable to me that Tracy, Lulu, Sonny and anyone who knows Luke would believe that he’s in his right mind or the same person. I’m stretching my willingness to believe…but I’m just about at the limit before I pop!

      As for doughnuts…it’s sooooo not time to make them!

      • Shay

        April 26, 2014 at 2:29 pm

        Not to mention that if this were Jerry, when he encountered Samantha at the art gallery he would not have referred to her as “Sammy” but “Sweet Sam”…..you know he would not have been able to help himself! The fact that FLuke seems so oblivious to a lot of the locals and their respective “nicknames” makes me suspect this is not someone who knows Port Charles all that well.

    • su0000

      April 24, 2014 at 5:57 pm

      Jerry Jacks was never an aggressive grabby woman type and wouldn’t go after Kikki in that manner..
      Whomever it is would need to have Fluke’s personality, and he is far from charming or gentlemanly ….
      no way is he JJ or Faison etc ..

      Maybe it is Luke!! with a chemically induced brain change, or possessed, or overtaken by an Alien.. yup, could be Luke..

    • MC

      April 24, 2014 at 8:13 pm

      I hope it’s not Jerry, because while Jerry would “flirt” with all the women you speak of, he would not, nor did he ever force himself on anyone.

    April 24, 2014 at 5:15 pm

    When Luke was first acting strange, i was the first to ask if he was Jerry Jacks and i still believe this is who he really is…what the show needs to do now is show Luke in scenes with Bobbi and im pretty sure Bobbi will be the first to figure this is not her brother and Luke/Jerry will kidnap her!!!…imo!!!

    • jimh(leave it to beaver)

      April 24, 2014 at 5:23 pm

      Meanwhile, i dont like how they dumbdowned Tracy by making her blinded by love…Tracy new for a long time Luke hasnt been himself and should realize there is a possibility of him coming on to Kiki instead of viceversa…i mean why wouldnt Tracy wonder after all this time would Kiki suddenly show interest in Luke? Tracy is smarter than that and should know something still isnt right about Luke and that perhaps he couldve hit on Kiki…and didnt Nik or someone overhear what he said about Britts arse and why wasnt Tracy told about it?

      • jimh(leave it to beaver)

        April 24, 2014 at 5:26 pm

        Another GH problem for me is the return of Maxi…instead of hanging in her apartment with that goofy Lego or whatever his name is, she should have been in scenes with Mac and Felicia welcoming her back home!!!

        I agree…I have to say it was pretty anti-climatic so far …I thought for sure she would reach out to Lulu …and what about Emmas play…. it so strange how the writers are writing these scenes…really bizarre.

    • dmr

      April 25, 2014 at 12:42 pm

      I agree with you about Maxie. I can’t stand Levi. Like Kiki, nails on a chalkboard for me. Such a waste of time and money on those scenes!

    i dont recall bill, or jerry (wish are the two most guess characters impersonating luke) ever being pervs, womanizers, maybe, but whoever this luke is, i think its gross, the story is playing out to long, we need a reveal, or at least see the real luke being held somewhere. and whats with Morgan acting like Luke is some stranger? doesn’t he know they are related? its just so annoying seeing how this story is being played out oh and by the way, morgan needs a hair cut, a shave and thats including his back, he looks like a teenage wolf.

    • Shay

      April 26, 2014 at 6:15 am

      Spot on about Morgan’s current grooming habits, or rather, lack thereof. It makes me wonder if there has been a memo circulated that encouraged the male cast members to join the “Stubble and Beard Brigade.” So many (including Morgan, Nathan, Lucas, Franco, Julian, and particularly Patrick-yuck!) have recently adopted the more hirsute look and that is not a good thing. As if Car-LOS!, the slovenly hitman, didn’t provide enough of that “razorless rebel” vibe….

    April 24, 2014 at 10:40 pm

    I didn’t find it funny in or out of context. The writing is just painfully juvenile. Calling it sophomoric would be overly generous. RC and his team lack the deft touch to mix comedy and drama in a way that’s relatable.

    I don’t get how RC doesn’t get that The Soup is about singling out the worst of the worst of TV rather than praising their cleverness.

    They’re laughing at Ron (and soap fans in general ) rather than laughing WITH us . Don’t see that as good PR and feel kind of sheepish for watching at all.

    Making “The Soup” is not a good thing.

        soap drama is real life it is campy..
        Dont take soaps so seriously, they are fiction..
        if you can’t have fun, laugh at the silly or humor , and enjoy it, tune out..
        dont punish yourself by watching it.. 🙂

        and- soap fans have been laughed at and joked about and made fun of from day one..
        and when we see how some of the soap fans act, think about it, we are laughable ….
        NO gener acts like soap fans, we have a reputation, ya know..

    GH shows up on Soup every now and then. When Britch threw Emma’s doll on the grill it made it to Talk Soup. Its a good thing. There are three other soaps I never see on that show. It could be that its poking fun at GH but I see it as a way to attract new viewers who are intrigued by outlandish behavior, as well.

      B&B has been on there for a while. Mainly when Ridge knocked Rick off the roof of the Forrester building and yelled, “Riiiiiiick!!”

      Ronn Moss and Kyle Lowder, who played Ridge and Rick at the time, have both been on “The Soup” with Joel a couple times for B&B. It was hilarious.

    As much as I dislike Faux Luke; that line was hysterical. I laughed out loud while at the gym watching it. Love seeing little Spencer interact with Faux Luke. That little guy can really deliver whether in scenes with other child actors or powerhouse greats like Maurice, Tony, and Tyler. Two things I can’t stand about this storyline-Tracy looking like an idiot and more useless Kiki-such a waste of precious air-time!

    April 25, 2014 at 12:35 pm

    Dear God, not another mask. I hope it’s Bill back from the dead and the real Luke is just tied up somewhere in Miscavige waiting to be rescued.

    • Shay

      April 26, 2014 at 6:28 am

      I think Jerry took the real Luke to formulate another dose of anti-polonium serum from his antibodies….when Spencer was initially imprisoned in Miscavage, they were drawing his blood when he was taken from the room at regular intervals (as Scotty mentioned.) However, in the end, it was probably just easier to bring the mountain (Luke) to Mohammed (Jerry) so when FLuke the imposter was ready to replace the original, they shipped off the genuine article to Mr. Jacks’ latest hideaway.

    Since I don’t watch GH or Days, I learn a lot about them from McHale’s “The Soup.” I loved the relish fiasco that went on for a while. I have no idea what it was about, but OMG, if it was half as funny on the air as it was on “The Soup,” it must have been good viewing!

    I also love that McHale has had several of the stars on the show from B&B, including Ronn Moss and Kyle Lowder, who played Ridge and Rick Forrester a couple years ago. When Ridge knocked Rick off the Forrester Creations rooftop, yelling “Riiiiiiiiicccckkk!!!” it was played over and over again for a few weeks. McHale finally had Moss and Lowder on the show, and it was hilarious.

    McHale also enjoys talking about various telenovelas, so someone at “The Soup” is definitely a soap opera lover. I hope they keep it up. About the only show that hasn’t been on (that I know of) is “Y&R.”

    Guess they just don’t have good enough material, but considering some of the programs they’ve had in the past, I’m shocked they haven’t been on “The Soup!”

    More power to “The Soup” and our soaps being shown on there. It brings in new interest from Soup viewers, which ends up with new fans. Thanks, Joel & “The Soup.” We really appreciate your interest (and making fun of our shows so folks get interested in them). 🙂

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
