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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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

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… Read more »

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.

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

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.

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.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Alex Is ‘Wicked’ To Anna; Franco Receives Devastating Diagnosis

Friday’s episode of General Hospital brought with it a clever play on the Broadway smash hit musical, Wicked, but no there was no singing, instead we had the always brilliant Finola Hughes, playing the good witch and the bad witch, in the form of portraying twin sisters, Anna and Alex as Halloween night comes to Port Charles.

In story, Anna, who is dressed for Halloween in white as a good witch, reads the report in front of Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) that proves that Faison did not have the marker for RA (rheumatoid arthritis) which then proves that since she did not have it, nor Faison, that Alex is the biological mother of Peter August (Wes Ramsey).

All this time, as Anna says, she blamed herself for being with Faison only to find out that was a complete lie.  Anna becomes so incensed by all of Alex’s machinations that she smashes a glass just as the power goes out.  Valentin tells Anna he was also used by her sister where Peter was concerned.  Anna questions whether she should warn Peter, that Alex might be after him and his unborn child with Maxie (Kirsten Storms).  Valentin is convinced they need to get rid of Alex, before she does something to them.

 

Anna does decide Peter should show know the truth, as Valentin leaves to find out Alex’s whereabouts.  When the lights come back on at Anna’s, she is clubbed over the head by Alex who is dressed in black as a bad witch. Later, when kids come to trick-or-treat at Anna’s, she has switched places with her sister offering the kid’s candy after stashing Anna away in the basement and most-likely locking her in there.

Peter is in a whole heap of trouble as he keeps getting creepy phone calls from Helena saying they have “unfinished business”.  We later see a trap is being set by Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Sam (Kelly Monaco) in a secret location.  Sam is using a voice-alternating ‘Pro Tools’ like audio software program to simulate Helena’s voice to spook Peter and to set him up!

Back at the hospital, Terry (Cassandra James) delivers terrible news to Franco (Roger Howarth). His test results show he has a malignant tumor again on the front lobe of his brain, and that it is inoperable and cannot be removed through surgery.  She tells him she wants to run more tests to see what options they have.

When she asks Franco if he has developed any symptoms, he flashes back to the night at Wyndemere when Ava’s (Maura West) painting was revealed and ruined with C077x spray-painted across it and a haunting dream he had, but denies to Terry that he has had any problems as of now.  When she tells him they need to tell Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst), Franco says he does not want to tell her, or the boys, about this.  When Liz enters the room, Terry and Franco keep mum as to his condition, for now.

Roger Howarth showed once again why he can always be counted on to bring poignant moments to his scenes as Franco.  Be on the lookout for what happens with this story.  In a November sweeps preview in the current issue of Soap Opera Digest on newsstands now, GH head writers, Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor teased about the medical crisis that it “may hold the key to unlocking one of the biggest mysteries in Port Charles – something that has been in the works for years.”

So, what did you think will happen next in the Anna/Alex saga?  What do you think will ultimately happen to Franco? Will he become the ‘killer’ Franco again? What could be the mystery the co-head writers are referring to? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital To Air Special Election Episode In Honor of the Passing of the 19th Amendment & Women’s Right To Vote

On the Monday, November 2nd episode of General Hospital, just before election day here in the United States, the ABC daytime drama is airing a very special episode depicting and remembering the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

The inspiring female cast will go back in time as Laura Wright takes on the role of Beatrice Eckert, a suffragist, who is more than ever, determined to get women to exercise their right to vote.

Key to the episode are Eden McCoy (Josslyn) and Sydney Miykala (Trina).  In the story, it marks Josslyn’s first time to be able to vote now that she has turned 18. At first, she isn’t very motivated to vote, but when she and Trina find themselves traveling back in time to 1920, things take a turn as Josslyn realizes just how important it is to exercise her right to have her voice heard and vote, as those women before her fought for their rights.

In the all female directed, written episode, also look for actresses: Maura West, Nancy Lee Grahn, Finola Hughes, Rebecca Herbst, Nicole Briana Henry, Brook Kerr, and more of the female cast to be on-screen.

The episode’s key messaging, “Voting isn’t just a right.. it’s a privilege.”   All that to say, remember, to get on vote come Tuesday.

Watch the promo below.

Emme Rylan Addresses Reports Of Her Exit From General Hospital & Update On Plans With Family

Several hours ago, Emme Rylan (Lulu) of General Hospital took to her Instagram story to talk directly to her followers, friends and fans about her rumored exit on the ABC daytime drama series, and to share some changes in where she and her family will be living.

At that time, Emme updated everyone that since the landlord sold the house she has been living in with partner Don Money and their three children, that they had not found a suitable home for them to live, in Los Angeles, after their extensive search.  So for now they were going to put their things in storage and go on an extended road trip with the entire family in tow … in a car… under Covid-19 safety protocols with her kids still distance-learning, and that she would be documenting the trip on her Instagram account,

After she shared her original update, she later went back to her Instagram story to clarify her earlier statements after many fans were following up with her asking her even more questions.

 

Rylan shared:  “I am getting a lot of questions that I cannot answer …  people are kind of being confused that maybe I chose to take a vacation or take time-off,  so the only thing I can say is “no, I did not choose this.”  I can’t say anything else.  There you go.   That’s all I am allowed to say.   So, this trip is us taking an unexpected turn of events and turning it into something positive and fun for our family. ”

Earlier on her IG story, Emme addressed the reports of her exit from Port Charles explaining: “I am not in a position to be able to comment on the work stuff, so in terms of General Hospital, I am going to keep that topic quiet. All you need to know is that I love everyone there, we all love each other, I’m okay, and all of your messages of love are amazing … I love you guys so much — but I just can’t talk about it. ”

Then as to her plans with her family she shared: “We, meaning my family and I, have decided to do something completely insane. I have never done anything like this in my entire adult life. We are currently packing up our entire house and putting it in a pod and putting it in storage here in Los Angeles, and with only our suitcases, we are going to go on a Covid-safe, epic road trip.  I have been working every single day, Monday through Friday on a soap opera since 2004?  I have only been in New York and L.A, and I have never really explored life outside of this bubble.”

So, what do you think about what Emme shared with her fans and followers? Comment below.
