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!

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.

Holly’s Alive as Emma Samms Makes a Return to General Hospital

Friday’s cliffhanger ending of General Hospital revealed that Holly is indeed alive and being held captive, but by whom?  Who ever is behind this has her locked away and being watched on a surveillance system.

Viewers saw a hand of someone that is behind the kidnapping, and that Emma Samms made a return to GH in her signature role of Holly Sutton.

Samms, debuted on GH back in 1982, and has come and gone, and come back again to the ABC daytime drama series.  She last appeared back on it in 2015.

Nighttime soap fans remember her fondly as Fallon on ABC’s Dynasty and its spin-off, The Colbys.

So what do you think of the twist? That Holly is alive and that Samms was on-screen? Who do you think has Holly? Share your theories below.
