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!!!

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 😉

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!!

Soaphound

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

Addison

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

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

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.
