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.

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…

Meanwhile, Carly is stunned when Cyrus brings a familiar acquaintance to dinner at the Metro Court. And elsewhere, Finn and Anna’s plans to take Violet trick-or-treating are hampered when Finn is called back to GH, leaving Anna alone, unaware that a particularly evil threat awaits her.”

General Hospital just got hotter as it beef’s up its storyline featuring Kim Delaney as Jackie Templeton.  Now comes word that TV veteran, Gregory Harrison has come to the ABC daytime drama series as the recast Gregory Chase.

The character of Gregory Chase was previously played by DAYS James Read, who plays the treacherous Clyde Weston now and then on the NBC soap.

With Harrison taking on the role of Finn (Michael Easton) and Chase’s (Josh Swickard) father, that makes things a little juicier in the romantic department.

According to EW.com who broke the casting news, Harrison begins taping today Wednesday at the ABC studios for General Hospital and fans can look forward to his debut on-screen in a few weeks.

As to the storyline: “Fireworks could be on the horizon for Harrison’s character.”
