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)… Read more »

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 Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
