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!

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
