General Hospital favorite and pop/rock star Rick Springfield (Ex-Noah Drake) is heading over to the CW’s Supernatural for its 12th season! The casting news was announced over the weekend during the series San Diego Comic-Con panel.

According to Deadline, Springfield will play a minion of Lucifer for a multi-episode arc.  Supernatural’s EP Robert Singer described Springfield’s character as “a rock star who’s a little bit on the down side” and ready for a comeback. The former rocker as portrayed by Springfield becomes a “vessel” for Lucifer.

As GH fans know, Rick has portrayed Dr. Noah Drake on and off since the 80’s, and who’s on-screens on was Dr. Patrick Drake (formerly played by Jason Thompson).  Springfield is known for his many pop hits including “Jessie’s Girl”, and “I’ve Done Everything For You”.  He recently appeared in the motion picture Ricki and The Flash with Meryl Streep, and continues to record and tour.

Rick joins another former soap alum Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric, DAYS) who stars in Supernatural along with Jared Padalecki.  The series returns on October 13th for its new season beginning at 9PMET Thursday’s on the CW.

Good for him. .this show has exceeded is shelf life after the big bad mama of the devil from the previous season. .she was a hoot of a witch. .but I tuned out halfway through last season. .it’s no bonanza or Waltons. .for me. .not this season. .ok. .maybe a show or two for Jensen lol. .

Supernatural is one of my top favorite shows. I’ve watched since the beginning. It’s one show my husband and I both agree is worth watching. Kinda rare. lol. I’ll definitely tune in.

For you OLTL fans out there, Dan Gauthier, FKA Kevin Buchanan, was a guest star on an episode many years ago. He was, of course, amazing. There have been several other soap actors who have appeared over the years.

That’s awesome. Supernatural is a favorite in my household, which is why I was so excited when Matt Cohen joined GH. Good luck Rick. I’m sure we’ll all enjoy your performance.

ahh ok, I will have a look-see..
I ran think of at the least 11 rock star and devil movies, and same for tv..
they have all have been quite B great .

I remember when “JESSIE’S GIRL” hit big in 1981 and I fell for Rick Springfield’s great talent and energy. Many dismissed him as a teen-idol flash-in-the-pan, which was strangely (and wrongly) confirmed when he joined GH. Well here we are — 35 years, 17 Top 40 hits, and a movie with Meryl Streep later and Rick has a really big last laugh on those critics. Hope his latest stint is rewarding for him also.

General Hospital’s Steve Burton Reveals the Emotional Scene He Almost Could Not Get Through

On a recent episode of General Hospital, Jason received a message from his mother, Monica Quartermaine (Leslie Charleson) via a note. The effect it had on Jason’s portrayer, Steve Burton turned out to be quite visceral.

As GH fans know, although Jason’s bio-mom was Susan Moore, he was raised and adopted by Monica. Speaking on his Daily Drama podcast with his co-host and GH co-star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Steve shared some insight on the difficulties he had getting through that scene.

Burton shared that in the key moment, “Brooklyn (played by Amanda Setton) came in and that’s where she gave me (Jason) the letter from Monica. That was a very hard scene for me to do. That was a tough one. That was the one time I was almost going to call ‘cut!’  It read ‘Jason, I believe in you.’ I was literally going to walk off the set.”

To clarify and in the story, Monica was saying “I believe in you” and that she knows Jason didn’t shoot Dante (Dominic Zamprogna). Steve added, “It was tough, man. Emotionally, it was a tough scene. It was overwhelming in the moment.”

Steve went on to detail to Anderson, “She (Brook Lynn) pushed it to me and I read it and she was walking out and I had to stop her, but I was so emotional I couldn’t even get it out.  And at that point, I’m like, ‘Do I just keep going … or do I just walk off the set right now?’ But, I knew just to stay, because it’s so hard to get back there, once you shut it down. I knew, the next take wasn’t going to be the same.”

It’s clear that Leslie Charleson is so missed on-screen as Monica by all of her castmates, and that Jason and Monica had a very special mother/son relationship throughout the decades on GH.

What did you think of the moment when Jason got a note from Monica that said, “I believe in you?” Were you touched as well? Let us know in the comment section. You can check out the latest episode of Steve and Bradford’s podcast below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Drew and Nina Get Physical; Were You Surprised or Did You Expect it to Happen?

On the Tuesday, April 9th episode of General Hospital, Drew (Cameron Mathison) and Nina’s (Cynthia Watros) explosive relationship just turned up the heat another notch.

In story, Nina who was responsible (although she doesn’t see it that way) for Drew being sent to prison for insider trading when she tipped off the SEC, let out her feelings to him about how to get back in the good graces of her daughter, Willow (Katelyn MacMullen) and Michael (Chad Duell). In doing so, she asks him for his help with it.

For months, the two have had nothing short of contentious moments, where Drew has not let Nina off the hook for what he did to him, or to his ex Carly (Laura Wright). Fast-forward and when alone in the Crimson office, Nina brings up wanting to stick it to Carly again.

As they banter back and forth, Drew can’t figure out why he should help Nina at all with any of her manipulations. Suddenly, as he tried to exit, his shirt rips and exposes his bare chest and abs, and Nina get quite an eyeful. From there, things become physical and before you know it, Drew and Nina are making out and having their version of hate-sex.

Cameron Mathison spoke to Soap Opera Digest on the shocking turn events, sharing, “I didn’t see it coming at all. I really didn’t. I think the audience did. Cynthia did some appearances and I guess the audience was ‘You and Drew, there’s some sexy chemistry there.’ I was like, ‘Wait, what? Really?’ I didn’t even get it. So I love it that it was very unexpected. The writers saw it, too. And, I love that it’s not a typical way for two people to be … physical. I was gonna say intimate, but there’s not a lot of intimacy there. And then as soon as it’s over, it’s back to arguing and giving each other crap again. It was really cute and really well done.”

As the fallout for their office room romp will air on the Wednesday April 10th episode, just how will the two deal with the fact that they had this fiery passionate moment in the weeks and months ahead? Will this be Nina’s new plot to get at Carly to be seen with her ex? Will Drew and Nina never speak of this again? (Well, this is a soap opera, after all, that’s pretty doubtful), or is this part of a major reset for some of the characters on the canvas now that Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte are co-head writing the show?

Speaking on the aftermath of the tryst, Mathison added, “The two of them are both like, all right, let’s forget about that and move on. It’s like a weird kind of aggression attraction. There’s obviously attraction there, but I don’t think either of them expected it, and I think they’re both totally shocked and surprised by it. I think Drew gets a kick out of it whereas Nina is a little embarrassed by it.”

Now let us know, did you see this coming? Did you think Drew and Nina would have sex? What do you think of the story turn? Comment below.
