Some excellent casting news for one of General Hospital’s finest alums!  News on Monday night via TV Line has that Brandon Barash (Ex-Johnny Zacchara) has been cast in an upcoming guest-star role on NBC’s drama, Timeless!

Brandon is now set to appear in Episode 14 of this season where he will play American novelist Ernest Hemingway.

The episode is said to be set in “Paris during the Jazz age after World War I,” reveals Timeless executive producer Eric Kripke.  The EP added that when viewers meet the future novelist, he is a budding newspaper reporter with a sense of adventure, still recovering from the brutality of the war with the help of a strong drink … or two.

Timeless returns with new installments starting on Monday, January, 16th at 10PMET with Brandon’s episode set to air on February 6th!

So, what do you think of Brandon’s upcoming guest star turn? Do you hope sometime in 2017 he might return as GH’s Johnny Z? Comment below!

Love Brandon….And, I will watch anything to do with “Papa”. I am sure the actor will do him justice.
Hemingway was not only one of the most intellectually “frazzled” “penners”, but also, one of the hottest looking guys ever. It’s no wonder his granddaughters were/are so beautiful. Sadly, depression ( running rampant in the family) was the cause of Margaux’s suicide.
One of his most famous quotes…eye-opening in its simplicity is…….”The best way to find out if you can trust somebody is to trust them”.

Wish his character was back on GH—it might get me watching regularly again (rather than essentially FF’ing through almost every scene on my DVR).

I’ve not watched Timeless because it doesn’t interest me. I do like Brandon Barash. I hope we hear when his episode airs. I’d like to see him again.

The show is not a must-see for me but when I do happen upon it it’s actually good. Will definitely tune in for Brandon; sounds like a great role and I haven’t seen him in anything but GH. (I’m sure he’s done other work but I haven’t seen it.)

Always liked having BB on GH. Would love to see him return as a regular.

Would like to see Brandon do Hemingway–someday he is going to be a big star–if he can just find the vehicle.
He was written with so much potential as a “gray” character when he first came on as the tortured, piano-playing son of a mobster–and lover to Lulu when he first came on GH; unfortunately, the good writing for him did not continue–alas.
But he’s going places!

I’m changing my opinion. Just binge-watched quite a few episodes of Timeless…had only watched a few previously. I love it! And, now, sadly, not sure if it’s going to be renewed.

Brandon was adorable as Hemingway! Charming, witty, debonair yet comedic. Perfect for the role/episode!

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?

That is why Michael Fairman TV gives Steve and Maurice the honors of The Power Performance of the Week.
