Thanks you Michael for all the interviews especially with Jason. I agree he is the leading man on GH and the only hot doctor left on the show. Hope he stays put on GH and can’t wait to see what happens with Patrick/Sabrina/Britt. Love Robin and was a Scrubs fan but now a major Patrina fan.

Great interview Michael!!! I agree that Jason is the #1 leading man on the show. I couldn’t imagine GH without him. I think it would be boring. I love the story between Patrick/Sabrina/and Brit. I hope that Patrick stays with Sabrina and can’t wait to see what happens between them. I hope they take it to the next level. Thanks Michael!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jason Thompson is by far the sexiest guy on GH to date. He is like what Rick Springfied was 30 years ago. I actually statred to watch GH because of not only Rick but Jason and Kim as well.

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”

As to how long Knight will be sticking around Port Charles, that was not offered-up, but what was is that Michael’s new character will mix it up with Valentin Cassadine (James Patrick Stuart) with whom Knight worked with on All My Children when James played Will Cortlandt.
