GH’s Former Nikolas Cassadines, Tyler Christopher and Marcus Coloma, Come Face to Face

Who would have ever thought GH fans would get to see scenes between two of the actors who formerly played the role of Nikolas Cassadine? We’re talking about Daytime Emmy-winner Tyler Christopher and Marcus Coloma.

Tyler Christopher, played the part on and off from 1996-2016, while Marcus Coloma was the most recent on-contract actor to take on the role from 2019-2022.  He last aired in January of 2023.  After his exit, Adam Huss took over the role, once again (he had previously subbed for Coloma) until the part was written out, for now.

You can catch Tyler and Marcus together in the latest installment of Coloma and Kin Shriner’s (Scott, GH) Instagram series, “Two Dicks”.  In the story, Coloma and Kin are out of work and have a sort of, kind of, PI agency?  They receive a call from Maurice Benard (Sonny, GH) that one of his Daytime Emmys had gone MIA, and thus begins the journey of the fumbling ‘Dicks’ attempting to get clues and solve the mystery.


It is then, that Coloma meets up with Christopher to try to glean some intel on the mystery. This all leads to a stare down near a metro liner waiting area, and then Coloma following Christopher around.

It was a clever move from Coloma and Shriner to have Christopher appear in their short form series given the rich history of GH.

As previously reported, Christopher was arrested for public intoxication on May 26th.

Coloma is currently residing in Florida and going back and forth to Los Angeles for his acting career as well as working on other projects. Kin Shriner also spends time in Florida.

So was this before or after the sad story with Tyler drunk at the airport.

GH Films about 4-6 weeks in Advance so After.

An attention-grab from Marcus Coloma who I wish would just… disappear into the background.

What’s really strange is the lead photo for this post is at the Burbank Airport train station. Tyler’s recent arrest occurred outside the airport terminal. Coincidence or bad optics?

Here is an idea get TC some help ok he has a problem with alcohol he needs to get sober and stop with the videos and the Hollywood crap! Disgusting

I did not enjoy this video. Tyler also does not look well.

Totally agree. Contrary to all the gushing comments on Instagram I was more uncomfortable with it. His battle with alcoholism has affected his whole life. I was affected by someone’s alcoholism and I just wish I could “shake” some sense in Tyler Christopher. I feel for his children.

He does need help. Treatment and meetings will help him change his life. Being a addicted with 12 years clean and sober I know it works. I encourage you Tyler. Seel out Treatment because if you want something different you have to do something different.
Love ❤️ and prayers

Wow.. Lotta haters in the comments section. Why bother if you only want to spread negativity? Anywho.. loved it! Glad to see Marcus and Tyler together! Pretty wild! Wishing them both the best and hopeful that one of them gets back to being Nikolas, ASAP!! Much love!

Are you unfilimiliar with Tyler’s long struggle with alcohol? The comments read more about concern and caring for his welfare.


There’s no chance that Marcus comes back to the show. It’s either a new recast or Adam Huss.

Writers Strike Comes to an End; Leadership Votes To Conclude Work Stoppage

It’s over! After 148 days, the 2023 Writers strike will go down as the second longest in WGA union history, only a labor stoppage in 1988 was longer.

The strike will officially come to end on Wednesday at 12:01am PT.  This was due to a vote from the guild’s leadership that now has authorized its over 11,500 members to return to work.

That means: pitching and selling scripts, taking meetings, responding to notes, writers’ rooms opening up again, and more, can now restart.

The WGA committee shared that the vote, “Allows writers to return to work during the ratification process, but does not affect the membership’s right to make a final determination on contract approval.” However, WGA East and West voted unanimously to lift the “restraining order” on Tuesday.

As the negotiators shared, the end of the strike doesn’t mean that the tentative agreement that the union reached with producers on Sunday night is a surefire thing: Union members still need to vote to ratify the contract. Union leadership announced on Tuesday that will take place between October 2nd and October 9th.

However, SAG-AFTRA still remains on strike. So, even with the writers returning to work, many productions can’t move forward without their principal actors and performers.

So soap fans, how do you feel about this news for your favorite shows? Glad that the head writers and their writing teams will be back at work as soon as this week from Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and The Bold and the Beautiful? Y&R’s Josh Griffith, who previously had gone Fi-Core during the 2008 strike, remained at the top rated show during the last several months.

WGA and AMPTP Reach Tentative Deal to End Writers Strike

Looks like we are close, very close, to the writing teams at your favorite soap operas returning to their jobs with news on Sunday that finally the WGA and AMPTP have reached a tentative deal. What remains is the fine print, and having the WGA vote to ratify their contracts.

This is welcome news to the television, streaming and motion picture industry that after five months of a strike has put the 2023-2024 TV season in deep water.

In a statement, the Writers Guild shared, “We have reached a tentative agreement on a new 2023 MBA (Minimum Basic Agreement), which is to say an agreement in principle on all deal points, subject to drafting final contract language. We can say, with great pride, that this deal is exceptional — with meaningful gains and protections for writers in every sector of the membership.”

As the deal goes through its final stages, the writers are still technically on strike, but picketing outside studios and shows has now been suspended.

Among the writers’ demands that they fought for are: higher residuals from streaming shows, minimum staff sizes to prevent the use of “mini rooms” and protections from the use of AI.  The hope within the entertainment industry is that the new deal for the WGA will move along a new contract for SAG-AFTRA (actors) with the AMPTP.  As of Monday, SAG-AFTRA is still on strike.

As for your favorite soap operas, during the strikes, the shows were written by non-union writers or “fi-core” writers who gave up their union benefits in order to continue working.

The next steps in process will see the WGA negotiating committee vote on “whether to recommend the agreement and send it on to the WGAW Board and WGAE Council for approval,” tentatively scheduled for Tuesday.  Another vote by the board and council could lift the strike “restraining order”and allow scribes to “return to work during the ratification vote”.

So, are you happy to know that the writing teams from your favorite soaps are about to return to work and helm the scripts and the vision of the shows? Comment below.

General Hospital Alum Richard Simmons ‘Not Interested’ In Biopic with Pauly Shore Portraying Him

Former General Hospital guest star and fitness guru, the reclusive Richard Simmons, has come forward and addressed actor and comedian, Pauly Shore’s wish to play the 70’s and 80’s pop culture icon in a biopic about his life.

Shore previously took to social media and on X shared a side-by-side of him and Simmons. Accompanying the post, Pauly expressed: I’ve noticed the reactions to me playing #RichardSimmons in a biopic. I heard he’s living in Big Bear. We’ve been playing phone tag (yes, he has a phone). I’m trying to make it happen, you guys. In the meantime, hit up all the big producers. I’ll see you at @TheAcademy 2025!”

However, TMZ’s sources are reporting on Saturday that Simmons is not in favor of Shore playing him in a film or anyone else, or any biopic on his life.

The outlet shared that Richard’s reaction was that he was aware of the effort behind a biopic, mostly spear-headed by Pauly. but that he just doesn’t want to be involved. Simmons also added that he likes Pauly a lot, but he’s not biting, despite the public’s urging on social media about the idea of a movie on his life.

Born Milton Teagle “Richard” Simmons, he became part of the public conscious back in the 70’s and 80’s with exercise studios and the ability to help his clients lose weight; many of them were celebrities. Simmons himself, admitted to at one time to being overweight, and getting into fitness helped him maintain a healthy living style and he wanted to help others.

Later, he began a four-year recurring run on General Hospital playing himself from 1979-1983.  Simmons returned to the show in 2013 for the Nurses’ Ball to taunt Lucy (Lynn Herring). He also was host of the Emmy-award winning, The Richard Simmons Show, which focused on personal health, fitness, exercise, and healthy cooking.  Over the last several years, Simmons has withdrawn from public life.

What would you think of a Richard Simmons biopic and if it included some moments in front of the camera and behind the scenes of what went down when he appeared on GH? Do you think it will ever happen given Simmons current position on the matter? Let us know in the comment section.
