In a new interview out today from TVGuide.com, General Hospital’s Laura Wright (Carly) previews the first meeting between Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) and Carly, and what happens when the two female titans of Port Charles go at it!  Look for October 22 to be the first round of Brenda vs. Carly. In addition, Wright mentions she has her eye on one soaper to come in to Port Charles and be the new man in Carly’s life.  And, that is none other than Daytime Emmy winner for Lead Actor, Michael Park, formerly Jack Snyder on As the World Turns.  Here is what Laura had to say about Park and Brenda!

Wright on wanting Michael Park on GH: “I’ll tell you the award I want! Michael Park [ATWT‘s Jack]! I love Ingo Rademacher, and I love the Jax and Carly relationship and I don’t know where the writers are going with it, but dammit, I want Michael Park! He’s so charming and so talented. I’ve already told Bob Guza and [GH writer] Elizabeth Korte about this. And I think I’m going to send [ABC Daytime chief] Brian Frons an email. I’m serious! I don’t know if Michael wants to work with another Carly, but I have the whole storyline already worked out in my head. So, yeah, I want him to be my new man. [Laughs] And he does not get to be in love with Brenda!”

Wright on if the collision between Carly and Brenda will be well worth GH’s fan wait: “I hope! Everybody came down to the set to watch us shoot it and they were all laughing. It’s pretty crazy. The straws Carly grabs for will have jaws dropping. She really goes for it. It had to be that crazy or it would fall to s–t after all this buildup. Afterwards, I had to apologize to Vanessa and she gave me a huge hug.”

So what do you think? Would you like to see a Jack Attack come to PC and pair Park with Wright?  Are you looking forward to Vanessa and Laura’s upcoming scenes?  Let us know.

I am for it if it frees Jax from Carly. He is way too good for her. He needs a classy woman. They could bring back Skye for him or bring on someone new. Alexis would be great too.

I’d be all for it if it gets Carly away from Jax… we all know he’s one true love is his vendetta against Sonny. Jax is like a wolf in sheep’s clothing, always pretending to be high and moral but always doing something underhanded, not caring if he sacrifices his marriage or the step kids he claims to ove so much, as long as he can harass Sonny. i say good riddance Jax… let Carly have a man who actually loves her more than an obsession with all things Sonny.

I think Laura has a fabulous idea, Who wouldn’t want to act opposite Michael Park?’ I’ve never cared for Jax because I don’t think in all the years he has been on GH, he has improved as an actor. His story is one of betrayal to get rid of Sonny, and he is gettingf away with it. I say , go for it, Laura….good luck in your quest…..looking forward to seeing Michael Park……..

You get Michael Parks on General Hospital and you get me as a fan!! That man is a dynamic actor and a wonderful person!!

I would love to see Michael Park on General Hospital with a new Carly. Jack with a new Carly would make me a fan of their hospital, I’m sure of it! I bet he could get her an Emmy like our Carly! Our Carly’s move to YR with a new Jack made me make the move. If soaps want our business they’ve got to hire our ATWT actors! ATWT had lots of us fans! I’m looking for new shows to watch, need some familiar faces. Love Michael Park’s! And he’s an amazing actor too!

Michael Park was my favorite actor on ATWT. I was sad to see the soap end, but seeking to watch new soaps. I am currently on board with OLTL due to all the familiar faces from GL. I too will become a fan of GH if Michael Park joins. I use to like Laura from GL. I think the two would be a good duo. Good luck with casting Michael Park.

Jon Lindstrom and Cady McClain Announce They Have Ended Their Marriage

After much speculation, General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin) and Cady McClain (ex-Jennifer, DAYS, ex-Rosanna, ATWT, ex-Dixie, AMC et al) have officially confirmed and announced they have gone their separate ways and have ended their marriage.

For months on social media, it was clear that the two were seemingly apart, not appearing pictured in any of each others posts.

Now, on a mutually shared Instagram post, Jon and Cady made an official statement on the status of their relationship, beginning with “Cady and Jon here. We are taking this opportunity to make a short statement about our relationship status. It may be obvious to some based on our posts that we’ve taken some time apart. After serious consideration we have decided that our goals have been taking us in different directions and to end our marriage.”

As to the future, Jon and Cady explained, “We remain friends and wish each other every happiness. As people who work in the public eye, it can be difficult to have a private life. Regardless, we ask for your kind consideration in this matter.”

Jon and Cady met when they both appeared on As the World Turns, he as Craig Montgomery, and she as Rosanna Cabot. After four years together, the couple decided to get married in 2014.

Richard Roundtree, ‘Generations’, ‘ATWT” and ‘Shaft’ Star, Dead at 81

Motion picture and television leading man, Richard Roundtree, has passed away at the age of 81. The actor, best known for his role in the iconic film Shaft, and its sequels, died from complications from pancreatic cancer on October 24th in his home in Los Angeles.

In a statement, Roundtree’s manager, Patrick McMinn shared, “Richard’s work and career served as a turning point for African American leading men in film. The impact he had on the industry cannot be overstated.”

During his extensive credits and career, Roundtree made two stops to two daytime soap operas. In 1990 till 1991, Roundtree played Dr. Daniel Ruebens on the defunct NBC soap opera Generations. He later appeared on As the World Turns from 2002-2003, taking on the role of Oliver Travers, the father to T. Marshall Travers played by Lamman Rucker.

Roundtree’s leading lady on Generations, Jonelle Allen took to her Facebook upon learning the news of the death of her former castmate and friend, expressing: “My Leading Man on Generations. I Am Very Sad. My Condolences To Your Family. Dearest Richard Roundtree.”

In a subsequent post, Allen shared a photo of their Generations’ characters, Daniel and Doreen about to lip-lock. Jonelle stated, “In the scene with him I kept thinking: ‘Shaft is about to kiss ME!!!’ Thank You.”

On Generations, Roundtree’s character of Daniel Reubens was a brilliant doctor, who was accused of killing someone by causing an explosion at a lab in 1974. He and his daughter, Maya, then went “underground” for the next 15 years. Maya was played by Viveca A. Fox.
