GH’s Josh Kelly Reposts Satirical Video on Actors Doling Out Political Advice as Election Day in America Nears

Photo: ABC

Josh Kelly (Cody, General Hospital) has always had the ability to make us laugh, and now the General Hospital star once again, shared his satirical video as an actor/politician type, as to why it’s best to listen to your favorite celebrity for advice on what and who to vote for come election day.

In the Instagram post, Kelly calls himself an “Actor and a D-List celebrity”.  Josh posted the video with the midterm elections just a few days away sharing, “It was time to repost this old chestnut.”

Josh goes on to jest, “I’m here to talk to you about the upcoming election … I understand elections can be confusing for the layperson.  That’s why I encourage you to follow the advice of one of your favorite celebrities or sketch comedy shows.”

Kelly adds, “As actors, we have far superior brains than humans. Having to memorize lines and bring characters to life puts us at an upper echelon. For example, I personally, played a politician on an episode of a TV show once.  So I probably know more about government than most politics people.”

You can watch the entire satire below.

Now let us know, what did you think of Josh’s video? Are you enjoying him as GH’s Cody? Comment below.

That’s hysterical. Sadly, there are people who do just that.

I love Josh Kelly. He was so good as con man Cutter Wentworth on One Life to Live. I hope GH is putting him to good use.

Since Roe Vs Wade was overturned after fifty years, I think it’s vitally important that everyone stresses the need to vote for reproductive rights. Moreover, Republicans are threatening to take away Social Security benefits. We have over 150 election deniers running for high office who subscribe to the big lie and who promise to throw out ballots that don’t support their guy thereby taking away our right to vote. This is the most important midterms of our lives- Democracy is at stake and the threat of autocracy looms darkly. I’m sorry Josh Kelly doesn’t get the seriousness of the situation… Read more »

Harry, I applaud your commentary here, and I agree with you about the seriousness of the situation, including reproductive rights, Social Security, election deniers, and democracy itself. I worry that not enough people (voters) understand the gravity of our circumstances, the importance of this midterm election. Nor do they get that the Republicans, including the massive number of election deniers and those who favor autocracy, are running on the current economic crisis (and outright lies about crime) and have no real plan to improve either situation. On a much smaller point, I appreciate Josh Kelly’s self-deprecating humor (“D-list celebrity”). I… Read more »

Hi Jamesj75…I can never figure why some feel actors shouldn’t have the right to voice their opinions. Like Josh. That their opinions are less than yours or mine, even if I don’t agree with all of them. Granted they do have a larger recognition platform to work from, but some football players, tv celebrities/reporters/ authors do, too. But I agree…voters wake up. Do your homework. Too much is at stake. And remember those you vote for are supposed to work for you. Have a good day!

Harry & Jamesj75, this is the first mid-term election that has me truly frightened. I just can’t fathom the blindness to evil and oppression that people are willing to, not only tolerate, but to actually vote for. It’s like a form of madness that calls the events of January 6th a “peaceful protest.” How do you reason with that? It’s not just a matter of having a respected opinion; it’s a fundamental difference in facts. Oy vey! Regarding Josh Kelly… no, I’m not enjoying him or his character or his grubby appearance. I don’t know why we need the character.

I understand your feelings, Soaphound. And I agree that this situation is frightening. Reality deniers are a scary bunch. What happened on January 6th was despicable, criminal, and unfathomable. And yet so many turn their heads away, or downplayed the insurrection, or lied about it. It’s disturbing and unforgivable. Add to all this that a certain ex-president tonight stated that he will be making a special announcement on Tuesday, November 15th. This lying, hateful, criminal, incompetent, amoral, twice-impeached, wretched excuse for a human being has done incredible damage to our country and to civility. And now he wants to be… Read more »

Just saw the the event you mentioned last night and also the so- called Pence interview the night before. The man could hardly answer one question with a yes or no answer. Talking about beating around the bush and evading questions. The Clowns preformance last night was a little underplayed, for him, I thought. Not as much theatrics as expected, but kept my barf bag handy. I know Michael doesn’t want us discussing this, so just let me say, God, save us all.

Great to see your comments here, Violet. I wholeheartedly agree with you. I couldn’t bear to watch either event live, although I saw the pertinent snippets in the ensuing coverage. My blood pressure/sanity/outlook are far better served by not seeing the former president or hearing what he has to say, ‘er lie. And while I appreciate Pence’s actions on Jan 6th, I find I also need a barf bag handy when he speaks, in that deliberate, disingenuous, “Christian” tone. Pence certainly has good reason to break from and criticize Trump, but like so many Republicans, he is so deathly afraid… Read more »

I appreciate your viewpoint, James. You make a good point. I didn’t mean to be so hard on Josh Kelly. It’s just these are very scary times. I will try and hold onto my sense of humor.

Harry…Another main qualifier for my vote is Character. I have found this increasingly lacking in a large group of those in, out, or running for office. And what they say, and what they do.

Dear Rose, James and SATAN! I want you to know I read and greatly appreciated every wise word you all wrote. Eric Braeden, once an arch conservative, has been speaking out on Twitter against the atrocities he feels the right is waging against reproductive rights, same sex marriage, affirmative action, climate change controls and voting rights. He had been redundantly told to stay in his lane and stick to acting. My main point is that just because someone’s profession is acting, doesn’t negate their right to free speech.

Harry, James, Satan…A couple of observations. Coming from the winning tradition of Ohio State University football I can only think those in Georgia who voted for Hershel Walker must have thought they were at a Georgia football game. Or betting for their team to win. The Bulldogs won again last weekend, and are ranked #1 in the SEC. Otherwise no reasonable explanation. Unfortunately can’t figure for those in my home state who settled for a “celebrity” author with no governing or political experience. ??? :)))

It looks like Georgia is headed for a runoff AGAIN. Poor Herschel’s so dumb he probably thinks that actually involves running down the football field. So he’s thinking “Oh Hell yeah, I got this! I can run faster than the preacher man”.

Just noticed your recent comments, Harry, Rose, Satan, and Soaphound. Harry, please know I wasn’t being critical of your initial reaction to Josh Kelly’s video. I saw only the humor in his comments. Lord knows, I have assuredly been critical of a certain actor or two; perhaps I allow my animus for a character to transfer to the actor, and that’s not really fair of me. I also appreciate your informing us of Eric Braeden’s recent comments, which show him in a new light. Rose, your discussion of voters’ allegiance to sports stars, despite all transgressions and transparent, tragic traits,… Read more »

The Religious FundaMENTALists usually claim that I’m trying to control the elections. Hell, I wish I had control of THIS one. Actually, I wish I had control of the entire 2016 cycle, so things would have never degraded to this point.

Typically, the Far Left and Far Right only believe in Freedom of Speech for those with whom they agree. As for the “crime report lies” the statistics prove differently. Thousands of men women and children are killed (minority the vast majority) in the crossfire of the gang wars in the inner cities yearly…a fact the Community Activists and Soft on Crime Left is ignoring. I don’t know where you live but in my hometown, New Orleans , as well as almost every other major Democratic controlled city the violent crime rate is escalating yearly. Additionally, calling out the insurrection in… Read more »

I agree and I think we are among the few that feel that way. I wasn’t crazy about him when he first showed up, but he’s grown on me. I can’t wait to find out his real story and what hes hiding about his past. I couldn’t see that paternity paper well, but looked to me like it was positive for a match. I also read somewhere that Scott is his real dad.

You mentioned Steve/Jason. I haven’t seen him since he left GH. I quit watching Days, it was just getting too crazy for me, the stories as well as the characters. Iam still enjoying GH but will be a lot happier when they get rid of that damn Uncle that has his nose in everyone’s life. I shouldn’t say this but wish someone would knock him… Read more »

A lot of people will disagree with my new thing here but I really like Austin with Britt and think they were crazy trying to make a pair of he and Maxie. I really hate that she’s leaving GH with so many possibilities for her and whomever her choice ends up to be. I’ve seen her four times on Station 19 now so don’t know how long she’ll be doing both shows. What a loss to GH viewers as her role on here is so much meatier than what she’s doing on the other show.

Violet…First let me start with a belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you!!! . As for Austin and Britt, I don’t know. Too many things left out and secrets. For one, I don’t trust him around the necklace. Plus I think Britt needs a stronger, stand-up kind of guy. As much as I don’t miss Jason, I think he was it. If she is really leaving I will miss her, too.

Harrison Wagner, Son of GH’s Kristina Wagner and Jack Wagner, Cause of Death Determined

General Hospital’s Kristina Wagner (Felicia) and former GH and B&B star Jack Wagner (ex-Frisco, ex-Nick) have been mourning the loss of their beloved son, Harrison Wagner, since he passed away this past June at the age of 27.

Harrison was found in a parking lot and his cause of death was initially deferred.  Now, according to a report from PEOPLE.com, the Los Angeles County Medical Examiner-Coroner officials have updated Harrison’s death as an “accident,” with Fentanyl and Alprazolam (the generic name for Xanax) as the official cause.

Following his passing, Kristina and Jack created the Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund to assist other young men who battle addiction to be able to afford getting into a recovery community.

Just a few days ago on December 1st, Kristina remembered her son on what would have been his 28th birthday with a touching Instagram post. It included a video clip of Harrison dancing along with the words: “Sometimes I feel like a pinned butterfly. There’s no second chance. There’s no see-him-again. There’s no nothing. He’s not coming back. It’s final. But life goes on. How do I spend the rest of my own without Harrison in it? What does it mean to be ‘all right’ after the death of your child, your blood? The pain will never go away. Today is Harrison’s birthdate. I had the privilege to know him for 27 incredible years. Harrison was larger than life, but beneath his commanding presence was vulnerability and compassion. He understood his own defects and worked hard to turn them around, to strengthen his positive attributes. He was a good listener and stood up for others when they couldn’t speak for themselves. He is missed. Happy Birthday, Harrison. To all bereaved parents: May you find peace. Let’s stick around and see what’s in store for our extraordinary lives.”

Jack and Kristina have two sons together, the late Harrison, and their eldest son, Peter (age 31).  The actors were previously married from 1993 to 2006.

We continue to offer our condolences to Jack, Kristina, and Peter through this difficult time, and hope that from Harrison’s passing, that the scholarship fund in his name, will help others.

Share your thoughts on the closing of the case on Harrison Wagner’s death, and send your continued condolences to Jack and Kristina via the comment section below.

The Harrison Wagner Scholarship Fund notes that if you have a loved one that is in need of help with their substance abuse, please give them call at 888-977-4549 to learn more about the recovery options available.

GH’s Charles Shaughnessy On Victor’s Villainy: “He’s Just Making Trouble for All of the Fan Favorites! He’s Just Making Their Lives Miserable”

In pretty short order, Victor Cassadine’s re-emergence in Port Charles, and now played by daytime vet, Charles Shaughnessy, has caused plenty of havoc on ABC’s General Hospital.  Shaughnessy, who was much beloved as Shane Donovan on Days of our Lives, debuted on GH back in September of 2021.

You can look at the body count, or the people Victor has under his thumb, to know the impact he is making on the canvas.

In a new interview in the latest issue of Soap Opera Digest (on newsstand now), Shaughnessy weighs-in on being the treacherous Cassadine.

 

Charles shared: “I mean, he’s just making trouble for all of the fan favorites! He’s just making their lives miserable.  He’s the guy who killed Luke Spencer.  He’s the guy who put Anna in jail and tried to break up her relationship with Valentin.  He’s just miserable to Holly. He’s just dreadful! But it’s such great fun, I mean, the more dreadful the better, really. He’s the villain you love to hate.”

Photo: ABC

So, how and just when Victor will get his comeuppance is on everyone’s mind in the viewing audience as well as for characters such as: Laura (Genie Francis), Valentin (James Patrick Stuart), Lucy (Lynn Herring), Holly (Emma Samms), Anna (Finola Hughes), Ava (Maura West), Selina (Lydia Look), and many more.

Victor’s evil deeds seemed to reach new heights during the Holly Sutton storyline. Now the question is, who will he go after next, given what would seem to be his quest for the necklace containing diamonds from the Ice Princess?  Stay tuned.

What do you think of Charles’ portrayal of Victor? Who do you hope takes down Victor? Comment below.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Felicia, Robert & Holly’s Masterplan Revealed Featuring Heart-Tugging Moments from Tristan Rogers & Emma Samms

Wednesday’s General Hospital began where the previous episode left off, with an on-fire, Holly Sutton (Emma Samms), literally! As the action picks up, Robert (Tristan Rogers) covers Holly with blankets to try and douse the flames.  The paramedics announce Holly has suffered second-degree burns over 75% of her body.

When the ambulance takes off, Robert goes with it. Meanwhile, Jordan (Tanisha Harper) and Mac (John J. York) are looking for evidence from the cabin fire … and wonder where the necklace has gone?

Later, the ambulance pulls over to the side of the road, and one of the drivers is none other than paramedic Felicia Scorpio (Kristina Wagner)! Felicia reveals herself as does Holly, who is perfectly fine, and Robert, who was in on the entire ruse to get Holly safely out of the country and away from Victor Cassadine (Charles Shaughnessy).

Viewers learn in flashbacks how this trio worked together to pull this off: Felicia showed up at the cabin with fire retardant clothes for Holly to wear and revealed how she planned to set the stove to start the fire.  We then learn that Holly and Robert staged Robert’s drugging and mugging, in order for Holly to steal the necklace and leave it inside the cabin for the PCPD to find.  It was Holly’s plan to ensure that Victor would have no further use for her.

Next, Robert gives Holly the keys to a car that can’t be traced; as she is to drive to Canada with a new ID and completely disappear.  Felicia adds that records will show that Holly was taken to a burn facility halfway around the world, freeing her to find out just where Victor is holding her beloved son, Ethan.

Courtesy/ABC

Holly has a surprise in store for Victor on her departure! In a flashback, Holly meets up with Selina Wu (Lydia Look) on the pier and gifts her with one of the jewels from the necklace in exchange for poisoning Victor for her. Holly tells Selina she won’t find her son alive and well if Victor is dead, and assures Selina the poison will not kill Victor, but will be payback.

As the episode comes to a conclusion, and if you are a longtime fan of GH, you probably reached for the hankies in touching and beautifully-played moments between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms.

Courtesy/ABC

In the story, Holly apologizes to Robert for all the trouble she has caused, but the two share a passionate kiss before they say their final goodbyes. BUT .. you didn’t think Holly would try to get away without one last scheme? She had the necklace in her pocket the whole time, begging the question … was she  going to take it with her? However, Robert knew Holly had the necklace and asks her to hand it over to him, which she does.

For her final moments, Holly walks off into the fog, which could only signify that this guest star turn for Emma Samms has come to its conclusion.

So, what did you think about the twists on today’s episode? Did you think Robert, Felicia and Holly were in cahoots? What did you think of the final scenes between Tristan Rogers and Emma Samms? Comment below.
