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……..

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.
