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 Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.
