Jimmy Fallon Has Fun With GH Milking Character Reactions During Baby Connie Custody Hearing!

In a hilarious few minutes of Jimmy Fallon’s opening monologue on last night’s episode of Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the host began a comedy bit by saying how upset he was over the online cancellation of All My Children the other week, and so he is now looking for a new soap opera to watch, but also how much he loves his General Hospital! Fallon then says that even on GH, they milk people’s reaction to big news and then launches into a clip from baby Connie’s custody hearing when Maxie is on the stand and Alexis brings up that she was a murderer!

And what ensued was the facial expressions and reactions, one after the other, of the characters in the courtroom without speaking, with the help of some clever editing!  Watch the reactions of Port Charles citizens: Lulu, Alexis, Maxie, Felicia, Spinelli and more! Three of our favorites were Franco and Carly, and Dante!

This was a very fun way for a late night show to pay homage to the soaps, and GH, and to take a look at one of the staples of soapdom  … those lingering prolonged looks and reaction shots!  Watch the Jimmy Fallon monologue that contains the GH courtroom custody drama after the jump at about 1:19 minutes into it! And then let us know, whose reaction gave you the best chuckle?

Funny… but still makes me wonder, if so many people are saying they are fans of the soaps, why is ABC not listening?

Missed opportunity… I would have made it even longer. We had the Maxie/Lulu court case one episode, and the AJ/Connie murder case the day after. They could have used courtroom staring from AJ, Monica, Michael, Kiki, Liz (who also testified against Maxie earlier, and came back for the AJ trial to testify against him), Diane appeared at both trials, Sonny appeared at both, Scott Baldwin…. Plenty of opportunity to stretch it out!

Can’t stand Jimmy Fallon and the bit wasn’t all that funny.
The saxophone was soooo lame and he laughs way too much at his own “jokes,” if you can call them that. I mean, Leno is lame too, but this guy will take the Tonight show off the air for good once he’s in charge.

Pure soap………I love it……….and the fact that he mentioned AMC too…….thanks Jimmy!

Does GH’s Margaux Have A Connection To Someone In Port Charles? If So, Who?

This week, General Hospital viewers saw that the ABC daytime drama series is teasing a potential pairing of Drew (Billy Miller) and the new district attorney in town, Margaux Dawson (Elizabeth Hendrickson), after the two characters run into each other at a concession stand at the cancelled baseball game.

As fans of the soap genre know, Miller and Hendrickson also played former love interests on The Young and the Restless as Billy Abbott and Chloe Mitchell.

During Hendrickson’s first #AskGH live Twitter Q&A when asked: “Is your character connected to someone on the show?”  Elizabeth responded: “As of now Margaux is new to town … but you never know, there may be some connection that has not be revealed yet :)”

That tweet has left fans speculating if perhaps Margaux, has an ex in Port Charles, is tied to a major family in someway, or perhaps has some legal trouble past?

Recently on GH. when Chase (Josh Swickard) arrived on the scene as the new cop (following Nathan’s (Ryan Paevey) untimely death), it was later revealed that he was actually the half-brother to Finn (Michael Easton).  And as we know in the soaps, connections are usually the key to more long term success in a role, rather than being just a standalone character, but there have been exceptions.

So, who would you like to see Margaux have a connection to on GH?  What do you think will happen with her character? Comment below.

General Hospital Promo: Obrecht Decides It’s Time To End Peter’s Life, But Her Plans Go Up in Flames!

This week on General Hospital, looks like Peter (Wes Ramsey) may finally be freed from being kidnapped by Obrecht (Kathleen Gati) and Nina (Michelle Stafford), or will he?

In the just released promo from ABC,  Obrecht needs to be stopped, depending on who you are rooting for, that is.  We see her smash Franco (Roger Howarth) in the head from behind on the docks to keep him from uncovering what she has been up to.  Then, it looks as if Obrecht is holding what looks to be a molotov cocktail! “You have come to the end of the road,” she wildly tells Peter.

Nina attempts to stop her, but it’s too late,  Next thing you know the cabin is engulfed in flames? Who will get out of there alive?

Watch the promo below and then let us know, what you hope happens via the comment section below.

Vinessa Antoine Reveals She And General Hospital Have Parted Ways; After Landing Primetime Series Lead

After the fantastic bit of casting news for actress Vinessa Antoine  (Jordan Ashford) over the weekend, today, via her social media accounts, Vinessa has addressed her future with General Hospital.

As viewers know, Vinessa has been cast as the drama series lead in the new CBC production of Diggstown, and it is groundbreaking making her the first black actress to star in a series on the legendary Canadian broadcasting network,   Originally it was presumed that Antoine would go recurring on GH, while she was away filming, but that is not the case as she revealed in her heartfelt message today.  She and GH have mutually parted ways.

Vinessa’s statement: “There are so many people that God put into place who are directly and indirectly responsible for my time at General Hospital.  You know who you are. I thank you. I came into this world as an artist. My job is to create and inspire. I hope that I did that a little in playing #JordanAshford.

I believe that I have taken her as far as I can.  To clarify, as negotiations for #Diggstown were underway, although I am open to stay and play in Port Charles, I was told by my reps that GeneralHospital felt that my character would be off the canvas for too long for me to continue playing her.

With that, we decided to mutually part ways.  It’s time to make room for more women of color in prominent roles on television. I’m grateful to assist in that by starting this new chapter in my journey. I hope you’ll all come along. I feel blessed. Be well. xo”

An ABC rep told Soap Opera Digest that the role of Jordan is being recast.

So what do you think of Vinessa leaving GH for good? Share your thoughts via the comment section below and let’s wish her much success!
