Now either someone at General Hospital forgot to inform James Franco he is needed and scheduled back to the show for a September story arc, or James Franco can’t keep his own schedule straight.  Take your pick!

But according to the talented Oscar nominated actor in an interview with Access Hollywood last night, “I will be back to General Hospital, but I’m filming a movie about the Wizard of Oz in Detroit right now. I haven’t filmed any new episodes for General Hospital. I don’t know if they like think I’m going to fly out on a weekend and shoot something, but I don’t see it fitting into my schedule anytime soon. I’ll go back, but they said like September 20 or something I have no idea what they’re talking about.”

Well isn’t this confusing! I hope they get it figured out soon. I am sure his agent will be on the phone with someone at GH soon.

Why? he didn’t help the ratings the first time around.

I don’t understand James Franco. He is too involved in so many things, that I don’t think he can keep his life straight. Personally, as much as I believe James is brilliant and a fine actor, they should wind up his story already. There is so much going on GH right now that I dont think anyone is thinking about Franco. He had that one phone call to Jason months ago. So where is he……

I must be the only one who picked up on this but…they are going to make an adaption of the Wizard of Oz…?

The one thing I hate about film making today is the need to make everything all Tim Burton like.

Ugh, Hollywood needs some original ideas.

And while we are at it, don’t bring back Franco as Franco, his acting is terrible and stiff…at least on the soap.

It is Sam Raimi directer. It will star Michelle Williams, Rachel Weiss, Mila Kunis, and Franco. It is really more based on Wicked… the 3 witches became who they are. Should be good.

i hope he NEVER comes back!!! his character is not needed on gh!!

I think he’s just yanking their chain. I don’t think he’s that fond of Gossip shows, etc. and he’s adding to the mystery of the character “Franco”. If he told you when he’s taping scenes then you would know he is on his way back, right? Just my opinion and why should he tell them anyway? They just want a scoop and maybe he doesn’t want to give them one. The press was very ugly to him when he hosted the Oscars so maybe he’s just paying back. Anything he does is o.k. with me.

The “Franco” storyline at GH was stupid……stop all ready!

GH want to keep Franco as he is a movie star and an oscar nominated actor. They need him even though his story line was boring.

I think that was the love child of Guza I know several actors on the show weren’t that impressed with him.

General Hospital’s John J. York Reveals Potential Transplant Donor: “I Believe They Found a Match”

Promising news for General Hospital’s John J. York (Mac Scorpio). The actor who went public with his health battle shared Friday on Good Morning America that a life-saving blood stem cell transplant donor may have been located.

An emotional York told GMA, “I believe they found a match, perfect match, which will make me cry.  So we’re going to start our testing and do all that kind of stuff coming up here in about a week, and then I believe the transplant will happen, fingers crossed, in November.”

Through his association with the Be The Match organization, York located the now potential donor to help in his fight against myelodysplastic syndrome and multiple smoldering myeloma, two blood and bone marrow disorders. “

York went on to explain the difficulties he faced in trying to find a match: “Many of my family members were tested and most of them were 6 out of 12; apparently there’s markers that have to be reached. So they were on standby.”

When asked just what the GH fan favorite would want to say if given the opportunity to speak to the donor that appears to be a match, in tears, John expressed: “Thank you for saving my life. For letting me spend more time with my wife and my daughter and my son-in-law and my grandchildren and seeing this beautiful blue sky.”

John has played Mac Scorpio for 32 years and until recently had kept his battle with these two blood cancers private, but came forward to clarify why he is taking time away from GH, and how he is been trying to find a life-saving donor match.

Watch York’s segment from GMA below.

Now, share your thoughts and well-wishes as John awaits the test results from his potential donor, to hopefully undergo this life-saving transplant in November via the comment section.

Jacqueline Grace Lopez Returns to General Hospital

Never count out Brook Lynn Quartermaine (Amanda Setton)! After her termination at Deception, and following her grandmother Tracy Quartermaine’s (Jane Elliot) blackmailing scheme, BLQ is set to bounce back.

How will she do it? Now comes word from Soap Opera Digest that Brook Lynn will once again go back into the music business when Blaze hires her to be her manager.  This will bring actress and singer, Jacqueline Grace Lopez back to General Hospital to reprise her role as Blaze.

The last time viewers saw Blaze was back on the April 17th episode of GH, when Blaze surprised Chase (Josh Swickard) by turning up to speak on his behalf in front of the PCPD review committee.  Throughout her initial run as the character, Blaze was tormented by that creep of a manager, Linc.  She also became good friends with Chase when they sang together on multiple occasions, and revealed her real name was actually, Allison.

This will mark Lopez’s third time on GH, the first in a brief role as a babysitter in 2015/2016, her last run as Blaze, and now her return.

Lopez shared her excitement on her return with SOD, and that her first scenes back are with Kate Mansi (Kristina) and Amanda Setton Lopez expressed, “I’m really looking forward to working with them more and getting to learn more about Blaze.”

Just how long Jacqueline’s stay on GH will be this time remains to be seen, but the show is looking at exploring more about the character of Blaze.

General Hospital Alum Vinessa Antoine to Lead CBC Series ‘Plan B’

Former General Hospital star, Vinessa Antoine (ex-Jordan Ashford) has been making a name for herself in her native Canada starring now in not one, but two CBC dramas. Previously, Vinessa starred in the legal drama, Diggstown from 2019-2022.

Now comes word that Antoine will lead the second season of the CBC series, Plan B and a whole new story. The second season of the time-bending original drama series is an adaptation of the popular French-language drama series of the same name (now in its fourth season for Radio-Canada).

On her Instagram account, Vinessa expressed on her casting news, “Plan B- second season! Giving my all leading another show. This one. Wow. Great writing. Talented cast. Special story. What a treat ❤️”

In story, Plan B will follow the life of Mia Coleman (Antoine), a Montreal police officer. In story, Mia is approaching her fortieth birthday and grieving the end of her relationship with her ex, and her ex’s son, whom she embraced as her own. At work, the constant injustice she faces gnaws at her own sense of purpose. Mia’s already tumultuous life is turned upside-down when a seemingly routine intervention in a family crisis involving Paul (Vincent Leclerc) and Keri Whitman (Sarah Booth) results in the worst imaginable outcome.

The show asks the question, “What if Mia and her partner Tyler had the evidence that would have prevented this life-altering event?” Through Plan B, a strange agency that can take her back in time, Mia will stop at nothing to prevent a family tragedy, and will embark on a journey during which she’ll delve deep into her own psyche, confronting buried emotions and an unresolved past.

Vinessa originated the role of GH’s Jordan Ashford in 2014 and played the part till 2018.

So, excited for Vinessa as she leads another primetime drama? Was she one of your favorite Jordan Ashford’s on GH? Comment below,
