i think it is fabulous – i can not wait until billy gets his own primetime show…………..

From your lips to the producers’ ears. My hope is that these roles get to highlight the sensitivite, sweet, goofy side of Billy and not just the strong/silent Jason type persona. He has the talent to do it all, as he’s proven.

Good for him but his Jason just doesnt work for me…i wish that when an actor takes over a role tptb should sometimes take the character in a different direction the same way they done when Susan Horney took over the role of Alice from Jackie Courtney on AW…instead of Alice and Rachel continue to fight over Steve, the house and all both moved on into different relationships and their own story…putting this version of Jason back in Sonny’s orbit doesnt work the same as the first Jason,,,this Jason should had been in the medical field and not reunited with Sam…both Sam and Jason were a snooze before but are even worse now with a different actor in the role…jmho!!!

Big fan of both Ray Donovan and Billy Miller… sounds perfect to me !

This man deserves a primetime gig (although I would miss him greatly on daytime!).

I think it is time for Billy to actively seek other work. His turn as Jason has been an epic fail!! Starting with the writing, the character is wishy washy and ill defined and doesnt stand for anything. Next…his acting has not been on par with his prior work. He constantly looks bored…like he is just going through the motions minus any kind emotion. There is sub zero chemistry between him and Kelly Monaco. They just mumble at each other. They are trying to portray Jason and Sam as this against all odds epic love story and it never was that even befor!

Convenient that Steve Burton isn’t contracted to any current show…if Billy leaves to permanently pursue primetime anytime soon 😉

I agree, I don’t like this Jason at all, have StevenBurton come back as the real Jason

Don’t like how this Jason acts,would love to have StevenBurton back has the real Jason

Yep! Works for me. Steve is busy doing other things but, after a respite from daytime, he may enjoy going back to GH for a steady gig…after Miller leaves and tptb send Jason off screen for awhile before recasting (sounds like I have it all figured out. lol)

Agree. ZERO chemistry between BM and KM. Snooze.

Ray Donovan is a fantastic show. It’s near perfect…actually, it is perfect! Great gig for Billy to land. Will be interesting to see him in on the show. On a side note, I LOVE Liev Schreiber!

I agree, Rebecca. Billy Miller is an amazing talent and I am happy to hear he will be proving this to non soap watchers.

Can’t wait for the season to begin; such a great show! Don’t know if you read my latest message to you re: Nashville. I think it’s worth giving another look if you stopped watching. Though I HATE that Connie left the show (that episode was devastating) the show is getting better. The two aspects which I truly abhor is the firing of Will Chase (Luke) and the entire “angel/gospel/church” story. Wish they’d drop it and the character. It’s obvious they’re trying to get a more diversified audience so they cut a standard country character like Luke, who I feel had a lot of heart, soul and sincerity…to add a completely different dimension to the show.

Anyway, give it another go or at least catch the last few episodes. If you do, tell me “what say you.” 🙂 Later Har…uh…Addy.

Love Billy Miller and wish him the best. Love him on Y&R and GH. Just want my weekly fix of seeing him on soaps.

Oh, Sandy, how right you are! I was so sad when he left Y&R and I only had 2 older shows on my DVR to watch him on. Even though I think Sam drains the energy from everyone, it doesn’t affect my Billy addiction. I’ll be binging on RAY DONOVAN after series 5 airs so I’ll be ready. Best success to him!

ahhh great move !!
Ray Donovan /Showtime is AWESOME !

Billy has the acting flare to fit in, perfectly !

Poor billy being stuck with Sam is Destroying him..
Jason needs to be unattached and with Sonny, again..
Jason and Sam are horrible godawful !
Billy Miller is a great talent and he is being obliterated by J&S’s vision of Jason – those two need to be exterminated!!

su000, I held my feelings back for so long, hoping things would improve, but I agree with you. Billy is too good and too creative an actor to play Jason AS WRITTEN. That’s where the main problem is for me. Let Jason, and the viewers, have some fun! And stop chopping off his lovely hair.

Not KM ‘a fault he has been sleep walking since he joined GH sorry overated

wait a min a few day’sago Steve Burton Took him to the Hospital for lower sternum Pains he ok now ?

Perfect opportunity to get STEVE BURTON back as Jason, PLEASE‼️‼️‼️

Well do you think he can say the f word without mumbling ? This show is nothing but potty mouth and to bad some great actors but saying the f word twenty times in one sentence too much

I don’t mind all the f bombs but sometimes it’s too violent for me.
I just fast forward through the violence/

Billy is really good & should be a big star!!

Amen, Gerry. Did you see him in his guest starring role on SUITS? It reminded me how great he is when given material to work with. He was touching, vulnerable, and more than held his own with series regulars (he’s actually better than both of the leads). Anyway, I’ll watch him anywhere on any show.

Hes been good as Jason Morgan.
KM is good also. It will be ashame if
He left. Then i will welcome SB ..

I can only hope that this is not the end of Billy Miller on GH. I really enjoy the way he brings out the best of Jason. I also hope that GH does not bring back Steve Burton. He is getting too old to play Jason. I also like him and KM together.

Marie – I completely agree!

Gregory Harrison Talks His General Hospital ALS Storyline, Battling Addiction, ‘Falcon Crest’ on Maurice Benard’s ‘State of Mind’

Film and TV star,  Gregory Harrison is currently appearing on ABC’s General Hospital in the role of Gregory Chase.  In story, Gregory is trying to come to the terms with the fact he has ALS and is now displaying symptoms of the disease that will ultimately claim his life.

On the latest episode of Maurice Benard’s (Sonny, General Hospital) You Tube series State of Mind, the actor opens up about the challenges of playing a character with ALS, how he has battled addiction, his prime role on Trapper John M.D and Falcon Crest and much more.

In fact, it’s actually the the 40th anniversary of Harrison’s solo TV Guide cover as Dr. George Alonzo “Gonzo” Gates on Trapper John, M.D.

Speaking on his General Hospital storyline, and Gregory Chase’s battle with ALS, Harrison detailed: “He’s a complicated character any way, but we’ve added now ALS into the equation and that’s a really fun technical calibration for me. It’s a relatively quick demise – three to five years, generally for ALS, and it moves along pretty quickly. The body deteriorates pretty quickly and things happen, and there is an emotional kind of reaction to those that my character has. My character reacts to the loss of things and that’s what I am starting to be able to play.”

Harrison added, on how he is playing the nuances of ALS in the scripts he is given, “Where am I going to put in that slip and fall? Where am I going to put in that tremor in my hand? Where I am going to put in  the stumble, or the slur of this word or that word? That’s real technical stuff, but I have to layer that on top of emotional honesty of what’s going on. So, for me, it’s a buffet and I love that.”

Benard and Harrison also delved into the fact that Gregory he has been sober for 36 years. Harrison opened about how addiction changed his personality at a time when his career was riding high: “If I was the kind of person who would be regretful, then I would say that during my prime, I was busy using all my acting skills to disguise my addiction instead of building my career. ”

As his fame rose, Harrison also started his own production company. He admitted to Benard, that at the time, he was barely getting through jobs and projects: “I could act, but I wasn’t doing as good as I should have been doing. I was just persevering … pouring massive amounts of energy into enduring my addiction … not into the creative artist that I was inspired to be. And then I found my way back.” At one point, Harrison sought help at the renowned Betty Ford Center. Gregory shared that he had to hit rock bottom, in order to build himself back up again.

At the conclusion of the episode, Maurice asked Gregory how he enjoyed being part of the cast of the defunct CBS primetime soap, Falcon Crest, to which Harrison said he loved playing the role of Michael Sharp back in 1990. He compared that character to the likes of Port Charles’ Sonny Corinthos.

Check out Maurice and Gregory’s conversation below.

Kelly Monaco Celebrates 20 Years on GH and Sam’s Evolution: “All the Pieces Don’t Fit Perfectly Yet, But It’s Certainly Not Broken Anymore!”

Sunday, October 1st will mark the 20th anniversary of Kelly Monaco’s debut on General Hospital as Sam McCall.  And as the story goes, when Kelly finished her run on Port Charles as Livvie Locke (2000-2003), and the show had been canceled, the three major networks were all interested in her to join their soaps.

In the end, GH won out and fans of the ABC daytime drama series have been the lucky ones to have Monaco join the A-list cast of the iconic soap. Throughout Sam’s journey in Port Charles, viewers have seen quite the character growth. Sam started on the show as a con and hustler, and bloomed into a bonafide heroine and a private investigator.

Kelly shared with Soap Opera Digest in their latest issue, how she viewed the Sam of old, to the Sam of today: “Sam came on to the canvas only having herself and her brother, always taking care of someone, and never being taken care of.  I think the biggest evolution for her is starting from being a really lonely, scared woman and becoming a woman who is still really independent, but is protected by family and friends and love and relationships and loyalty, and she never had that before.”

In a very poetic way, Monaco added on her character’s development: “She came in bent and broken, and I feel like there’s a lot of her that’s still broken, but she’s constantly sort of putting the Rubik’s Cube together. All the pieces don’t fit perfectly, yet, but it’s certainly not broken anymore.”

Throughout Sam’s two decades in Port Charles she has been in love, suffered terrible lost, found family members, had children, and has been involved in some of the most dangerous and criminal cases involving many a villain as she tried to help bring them to justice.

Currently, Sam is involved in a romance with Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna).  Viewers wonder if Lulu ever wakes up out of her coma, would that spell trouble for their relationship, and in turn, give Kelly some great meaty story to work with?

Now, in the comment section below, share your congrats to Kelly for her 20-year-run on GH. Then let us know, what has been your favorite Sam story over the years?
