Jeffrey Vincent Parise Makes Another Return To General Hospital!

Great news Carrrlos fans!  Fan favorite baddie, Jeffrey Vincent Parise will appear on-screen in Port Charles next week on General Hospital!

According to the news on Friday from ABC Soaps In Depth, while viewers last saw Carlos taunting Julian (William deVry) as a vision or figment of his imagination, this time the series is being tight-lipped as to just why Carlos is back on-screen.

Could it be Carlos comes back to haunt Julian yet again? Perhaps it will be Sabrina (Teresa Castillo) who gave birth to his child that Carlos will pop up for? Or, could it be Sonny (Maurice Benard) he has some choice words for from the great beyond, or perhaps Griffin (Matt Cohen) who gave the murderer last rites?  Many options!

In the future, many GH fans have hoped that Parise’s Carlos might actually have a never-heard-of-before twin that the powers-that-be could bring in to Port Charles, so the actor could have new life on the long-running series.  Time will tell.

So, what do you think Carlos will be mixed-up in next week on air?  Share your thoughts in the comment section below!

Matt Cohen must feel right at home on GH. There are more ghosts on this show than on Supernatural!

BRING HIM BACK–he is Carlos’ brother–the good one (!) with MORE passion–maybe he is a PRIEST?–LOL! But he can leave priest hood, fall for Sabrina, have a torrid love affair, get her pregnant again, rock the town! 🙂

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Which begs the question as to why writers needed to kill him off twice…. or why they needed to kill off Michael Easton’s character so he could have a fourth one in the course of less than two years.

I like Jeffrey very much. But this is truly getting ridiculous. If he must appear for more scenes keep him as a ghost. Then, move on. Let him find a great role elsewhere where we can all enjoy his talents.

JVP like Duke should have never been killed! Duke is dead but Carlos’s brother that ONLY the sneaky ex Ugly Betty nurse knew existed shows up in town as a clean shaven good guy out to heighten the family name and make sure Julian rots in a jail cell! He drops a bomb on PC about Sabrina’s secret life that will eventually end in a jail cell OR a mental facility! Rejoice! Carson Rivera is in town and Sabrina is heading out!

Twin…not certain if i even care…Maxie will need a love interest when she catches Nathan and Claudette in a passionate embrace.-predictable-yawn..i know how about the return also of Levi Jeans Dunklemaniac-he never died but is crazy and knocks off half the cast-lol

Rose

Jimh …NO more Levi D, ever, not even in jest!!!

Glad he’s getting extra work but they never should have killed him in the first place. So much excess baggage needed disposing of instead (Aaron, Nurse Amy, Andre, Jordan, Rachel’s mother, T. J., Claudette, Officer Valerie) . Mr. Parise is a wonderful actor and deserves more than ghost stories. So do we.

Nope. Write better stories for Jordan, T.J., and Curtis. I’m enjoying having a black family on GH. If anyone needs to go, it’s Aaron & Sabrina.

NEVER SHOULD HAVE KILLED HIM! Never should have made him a killer. TOO MANY KILLERS already on GH.
Laura and Kevin are floating in a sea of ruin–LOL!

Please, I have repeatedly asked Frank to bring Jeffrey back as his twin brother (his good twin) or cousin or look-alike or whoever! Just bring Jeffrey back any way except dead! He’s too one note when he’s dead. Let him be the good brother looking for explanations for his brother’s death or looking for his nephew. You guys are good at making stuff up, that’s your job.

Patrick
Patrick

yeah, I cheerlead for his return

but… if you think to all the cast changes… returns newbies vets

can’t lie… JVP’ Carlos stands out

I marvel at how an actor can enervate other cast members and REEL

JVP work… with the likes of the much lauded STARS

only got that much better : Anna, Julian, Ava, Sonny, YES even Sabrina lit, Paul

this show is only as good as it’s STAR turns… Carlos … contributes and belongs

I love the idea that he’s Carlos twin… all spruced trimmed updo.. and not missing a beat and swag on

Trish
Trish

Patrick, let’s hope Frank actually reads these things and brings Jeffrey back!

Elizabeth

I can’t see how anyone could think Frank reads any board whether this one or one of the others. He certainly doesn’t run the show as if he cares what anyone of us thinks…..

Love him! What a Awesome actor!!! Sounds like a plan !

Rose

Trish…Like your idea. Plus he would also want to finally see his nephew. But he can’t be too good…he’s got to have an edge so Jeffrey can show his stuff.

Trish

Rose, I totally agree. He can be furious over the loss of his brother. That will give him some edge.

I don’t care how they bring him back, just so he’s back again for however how long. I love this guy!

Bring him back as Carlos Twin Brother. That will be a great role. He was bad but he was so cool xoxo

Ces

So a dead guy gets more airtime than live ones? Seriously, I’ve seen enough of him already.

Shay
Shay

You and me both, Ces!!!! This is but another example of how one of “Frank’s Favorites” keeps coming back like a bad penny “just because” he likes them so much….the fact the character has more than run his course and worn out his welcome be damned! And, no, this isn’t a slam against JVP….he did a fine job as far a portraying a completely revolting, irredeemable dirtbag of an assassin, but enough is enough. Just let him gooooooo and be gone……please! (And no twin either…..unless he briefly pops up to for the sole purpose of spiriting away Sabs and “Teduardo” forever! Now that’s an idea I could support !!!!)

Ces
Ces

Teduardo!!! lmao!!! Love it! God, I wish they’d send Sabrina and that Crystal Gale hair off the canvas … she has about as much chemistry with Michael as Morgan does with Kiki the 2nd time around. None.
I think JVP is a capable actor but enough is enough. If you wanted to keep an actor around, then don’t kill them off every chance you get. I don’t want a twin, or a ghost, I want him gone off the show for good.
GH doesn’t seem to know how to move on.

Is it any wonder why GH hit an all time low? Enough already. Either leave him in the show or write him out. But this switching back and forth, we the views are sick of it already. Years ago, when they wrote someone out, due to death, they stayed dead. Now you just never know if they really died or not. I am waiting for the return of Helena once again. Boooooooooooring.

I hope he turns out to be alive—I always liked this actor and wanted to see some kind of redemption for him.

I don’t care how he comes back,just so he does come back. I think it would be great if he had a long lost twin. I love talent and good looks he has both.

I can’t believe how GH still has the residents of Port Charles moaning and groaning about the deaths of two criminals — Duke and Carlos — but continues to sweep AJ’s murder by leading man Sonny under the rug. Disgusting.

I loved Carlos and JVP is such a fine actor. As usual GH had to go and ruin the character. He is handsome, sexy and actually had chemistry with Sabrina. I was shocked that they had him killed . Here is hoping he was NOT dead and Dr Munro somehow let him live. Come back my handsome Carlos.

nancy dillingham

SEXY is right! And a great connection with the audience. TPTB sadly don’t know when they’ve a diamond among the rhinestones–LOL!

Bring him back as a new character. It’s been done before anyone remember Marco Dane/Dr. Mario Corelli : Stephen Clay/Silas Clay? I say sure, give him a chance

Alan
Alan

The difference in the examples you cited is that there were strong head writers telling the Marco/Mario and Stephen/Silas stories. Jean and Shelly haven’t even developed the characters they’ve introduced (Darby, Andre, Parker, Curtis, Amy, Finn, that boy with Christina) into anyone worth investing in. GH needs to be trimming its insanely huge cast, not adding to it.

Aria

I’ve heard that the actor is well loved by his costar and obviously the show runner but enough already with the character, this is so tirering. Move on . Carlos just like Julian are weasels!

nancy dillingham
nancy dillingham

Written as weasels–difference is that the actor playing Carlos connected with the audience while Julian did not–he’s just an impassive mask–an automaton–no connection with the audience–just a cardboard cutout.

No more Carrrlos!
No more Carrrlos!

I’m completely mystified as to what it is people like about this character. Nothing against the actor, but the character of Carlos is a scumbag and has never been anything but. He’s way too old to be believable as Sabrina’s first love, and there’s never been a time when he wasn’t pushing himself on her, using her, and endangering her in some way. Pushing a woman all the time isn’t romantic; it’s sleazy. And don’t even get me started on how he killed Duke and then taunted Anna into shooting him! Gotta love his holier-than-thou act when Anna’s crime was one of passion and his was a cold-blooded hit! Sheesh! To be honest, I can’t even say he’s physically attractive. His hair’s greasy, and it’s not like he has a good body to make up for his face. Just not easy on the eyes! Anyway, I find Carrrrlos so annoying that I fast forward through all his scenes. I was so relieved when they killed him off, and I truly hope he’ll stay dead, or else I guess it’s back to hitting the FF button for me!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
