Revealed today by the Daytime Emmy-winning star himself, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) is doing a little moonlighting this week filming a guest-star role on ABC’s Castle!

As soap fans know, Castle has been very welcoming casting those in the soap genre on the crime series, in part due to series star Nathan Fillion, who got his start as a young Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live.

While not much is known of just who Benard will play on an upcoming episode of the primetime drama, Maurice revealed on Twitter today,  “On my way to film CASTLE.  Love the show — excited to do something different.”

According to sources at ABC Soaps In Depth, Benard was given the time off to do the primetime series and he wasn’t shy about expressing his gratitude to the soap’s executive producer, Frank Valentini, for making the shooting schedules work together.

So, what do you think of Maurice Benard appearing on an upcoming episode of Castle?  Will keep you posted when more on this role and the airdate on his episode becomes available!

CASTLE is not only a drama…but a drama with a twist. I love the show…watch it every week. I love all their characters, who, in their own quirky way, have an endearing sense of humor, if not as sardonically dry as Castle himself. The show is just a hop, skip and a jump from a comedy, in my opinion….or at least the actors make it so.
I am hoping Maurice will fit right in….I think he has a hidden strange sense of humor, right beneath the surface. CASTLE is the best place to unleash it. All the best….I will be watching!

Hi CeeCee..
Ohh my last comment was about Sonny, not Maurice..
I have a hard time liking the new Sonny, he is just not my Sonny.. He is too much of powderpuff now, I don’t like it..

Maurice is awesome!

I think it is great when actors get to “spread their wings” in other roles. Kudos to Castle for opening the door for daytime actors.

I’m sure Bernard will enjoy the change. Saw Kassie and Tuc in their recent appearance in Castle. It was fun, but sure makes you wish for at least a 1/2 hour reboot of OLTL.

Noticed how ABC is promoting it’s other specials and actors between shows a lot recently….keeping them all in the family. Surprised they haven’t brought a Disney character to the Shriner’s Hospital.

nathan fillion (richard castle) was on oltl as joey buchanan and he has never forgotten his soap roots…………….
i love the way he tries to have other soaps stars on his show…………..

Since one if its stars Nathan Fillion hails from One Life To Live it’s not that much of a leap. Not go mention Castle will probably get a ratings boost when GH fans who don’t watch Castle turn in to see him. Win-win for actor and shows. All about business…

This week General Hospital viewers should be on the lookout for a heavenly visit, or vision of Kiki Jerome (Hayley Erin), as her mother, Ava (Maura West) looks to finally make contact with the daughter she so desperately wants to make peace with from the great beyond!

And with that, Daytime Emmy-winner Hayley Erin will reprise her role and share scenes with her former on-screen mom, Maura West.

Erin exited GH in early 2019, when she joined the cast of Pretty Little Liars: The Perfectionists on Freeform in which she currently plays the role of Taylor Hotchkiss.

EW.com broke the news with first look photos of Erin’s return here.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Are you glad to know that there will be some heavy emotional payoff and scenes between GH’s Ava and her late daughter Kiki? Comment below.

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.
