Jerry Jacks and Batwoman on the same screen?  Well, not exactly, but good news for talented actor Sebastian Roché and his fans.  The former evil Jacks of Port Charles has landed a recurring role on the new CW series.

According to Deadline, in Batwoman, Roché, is set to play Dr. Campbell, one of Gotham’s most well-respected plastic surgeons and philanthropists.

Sebastian is no stranger to the CW having previously appeared in both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals for the network.

Roché shared his enthusiasm of his new gig sharing on Twitter: “I’m heading to Gotham”

The DC standalone series starring Ruby Rose and it premieres tomorrow night (Sunday) at 8 PM EST.

The log line for the new series shares: “Based on the DC character, Kate Kane (Rose) soars onto the streets of Gotham as Batwoman, an out lesbian and highly trained street fighter primed to snuff out the failing city’s criminal resurgence. In a city desperate for a savior, she must overcome her own demons before embracing the call to be Gotham’s symbol of hope.”

Will you be checking out Sebastian on Batwoman? Think Jerry Jacks might somehow turn up in Port Charles again someday?  Back in June of 2019, during a chat between Robert and Jax, it was revealed that Jerry had escaped from Steinmauer! So, anything is possible. Comment below.

    I have seen him in other things other than GH and he really is fun to watch in anything he does. I am very happy for him and hope this series has a good run.

    Well that pretty much rules out any chance of him showing up in Port Charles anytime soon.

    Plastic surgeon & philanthropist?? Yeah, that might be his “cover gig”. But when has Sebastian ever NOT been the bad guy?? Hell, in his last gig (Man in the High Castle) he actually poisoned Adolf Hitler, because he didn’t think he was evil enough anymore!!

    I am happy for him and his future recurring run in Batwoman but I hope one day he can come back to GH as Jerry Jacks. They did say he escaped from Steinmauer and I want to see Jerry Jacks again. Maybe someday they will bring him back and hopefully he can come back for an extended period of time. Maybe do an extended arc with him in it? I want to see him again.

      Agreed! Roche’ is extremely talented and never disappoints, no matter the role he is playing! However, his many continuing non-GH acting triumphs mean that Jerry Jacks will most likely not be visiting Port Charles for the foreseeable future, and that is indeed a crying shame! For me, Helena and he are the “real deals” when speaking of the soap’s top-tier villains…all other recent substitutes are only a pale imitation of the treachery and chaos they embody!!! (Except for Dr. O….but there is only so much evil-doing she can accomplish by her lonesome!) Short of Helena (or perhaps, Victor) Cassadine’s return(s) from the dead, I cannot imagine any other GH antagonist of yore who can compare with the terror a Jerry Jacks sighting in Port Charles brings! Please come back soon, Sebastian!

        I hope he does. I even have an idea for a story they could do if he ever returns.

          Sebastian’s Jerry Jacks always makes any GH storyline better simply by his mere presence! His gleefully naughty, roguish demeanor just thrills me to no end…I love that no matter how evil his plans, he never fails to have that twinkle in his eye as he merrily implements them!

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?

This year’s 47th annual Daytime Emmy Awards were back on television for the first time since 2011, and back on CBS.  Due to the times we are living in the throes of the coronavirus pandemic, the usual kudofest, honoring the best in daytime programming, had to move from its originally scheduled live event to a virtual one.

That also means for us at Michael Fairman TV, the usual backstage “Winner’s Walk” interviews conducted immediately following some of your daytime drama favorites big wins also had to altered for this unique year.

So we had our own, if you will, “Virtual Winner’s Walk” albeit without the walk and without the glitz and glamour.  That being said, it all felt much more intimate as we spoke immediately following Friday night’s broadcast with these newly crowned winners:  Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Jason Thompson (Billy Abbott); Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s Heather Tom (Katie Logan Spencer); who tied One Life to Live’s Erika Slezak (Ex-Viki) with the most wins by an actress in Daytime Emmy history with 6,  Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’ Bryton James (Devon), and Outstanding Guest Performer in a Drama Series winner, The Young and the Restless’, Eva Larue (Ex-Celeste).  All four of these conversations were emotional, candid, and touching.

Over the weekend, we caught up with Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series winner, Tamara Braun (Ex-Kim Nero, General Hospital) for another heartfelt chat on her second all-time win in the category, and Outstanding Writing Team in a Drama Series winner, The Bold and the Beautiful’s executive producer and head writer, Brad Bell, who won this award for the fifth time in his career as he shared how much he learned from his late legendary parents and Y&R and B&B co-creators: Lee Phillip Bell, who was part of the In-Memoriam tribute on the telecast, and the late Bill Bell.
