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!

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! 🙂

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

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.

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
Guest
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

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

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…..

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.

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

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”… Read more »

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 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.

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
Guest

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.

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

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.

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… Read more »

GH’s Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Photo: ABC

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
