John Stamos Visited General Hospital Yesterday! Is The Return Of Blackie Parrish Imminent?

Photo Credit: Kathy Hutchins

As General Hospital keeps bringing back the oldies but goodies of its 80’s hey day, another major star was apparently spotted at the set of the ABC soap yesterday and it was none other than John Stamos!

Stamos who got his start on GH as Blackie Parrish, was seen in this very cute picture with long time pal Kin Shriner, who is already back to work on GH as Scotty Baldwin! When Stamos posted the Instagram photo he related, “Visiting my buddy kin shriner (scotty baldwin) at my old stomping grounds –GH.”

In light of Jack Wagner’s (Frisco) return interview yesterday on Access Hollywood Live, where he admits he would love it if it can be worked out that he as Frisco could sing at the shows 50th Anniversary on-screen event, The Nurses’ Ball, it was Frisco who sang with Blackie’s band, where Blackie was the drummer!

Would you be thrilled if John Stamos could make a brief guest appearance for GH’s 50th on-screen shindig?  Let us know!

Yes… she started her career here as Jackie Templeton !!! This was just after Luke & Laura’s wedding, and Genie Frances left the show for the first time, disappearing off “The Haunted Star” and Jackie’s sister, Laura Templeton was the “new fake Laura”

I remember this like yesterday.

I could be wrong but wasnt Blackie Parrish serving time for a crime he didnt commit.? I dont recall him being released. How could he preform at nurses ball if still in prison?

Blackie was sentence to two years for second degree manslaughter in 1984. In 1987 when Dusty came on the show played by Shaun Cassidy, he mentioned meeting Blackie in prison and Blackie was released. Blackie has not been mention since.

Thanks Jenni. I didnt wach much of GH when Shaun Cassidy was on. I kinda remember him now that you mentioned. In the late 80s to late last year i watched off and on if certain stories interest me. Now im a regular viewer again who hates to miss an episode.

Gees…. I forgot all about Shaun Cassidy being on the show ! Bring him back with Rick Springfield, then Jack Wagner and John Stamos would have one hell-of-a teen bop band !

Would Love that. I was a huge Shaun Cassidy fan growing up and was over the moon when he joined GH for his short story. Also I am a huge fan of Jack Wagner, Rick Springfield and John Stamos and would be a dream come true to see them on camera at the same time.

It was actually only susposed to be 6 mo and then to a half-way house. In 1987, Blackie’s cell mate, Dusty Walker (Shaun Cassidy) looked up Frisco and that was the only mention. In 1992, John Stamos played John Stamos.

Even if he’s just visiting, it’s nice. Nice he’s still friends with Kin and remembers where he got his start.

I do seem to recall Blackie’s wrongful imprisonment and writers seemed to drop the ball. What is difficult is there are very few characters around with whom he had interaction 25 or so years ago and… well… do we care? As much as I like John Stamos and eat Greek yogurt hoping to conjure him, if there is a return, I would want it to be meaningful to story, not just an odd insertion of something of long ago. Guess we shall see, huh?

What about Jeff Webber, Noah Drake, Joe Kelly, Sean and Tiffany?

nope to anything from john stamos. he guested on glee w/c is 1 of the most racist tv shows towards Asian americans. they named both the Asian chars as chang bec it’s some kinda racist joke where all Asian americans are monolithic. like they couldn’t use some other name. then the racist coach character used to call them Asian and other Asian to further degrade them bec not calling the Asian american chars by their names is a form of humor for glee. then they had cohen chang mention that she didn’t wanna eat a chinese salas w/ chicken feet… Read more »

I tweeted Frank Valentini on Twitter for Blackie Parrish aka John Stamos to come back to the show! I’ve followed John’s career since 1982 on General Hospital till now on The New Normal. John Stamos playing drums, guitar or singing would be heaven in my ears on GH!

TONIGHT: Kim Delaney Stars in Lifetime’s ‘The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice’

Make sure to catch General Hospital and former All My Children and NYPD Blue star, Kim Delaney (Jackie, GH, Ex-Jenny, AMC) tonight on Saturday, February 20th when her highly-anticipated Lifetime movie debuts beginning at 8pm EST/7pm CST which marks the cable network’s 400th original movie.

In The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt for Justice, it tells the story of Mari Gilbert’s search for the truth behind what happened to her daughter Shannan, a sometime escort who disappeared after a ‘date’ on Long Island.

After Shannan (Katharine Isabelle, Hannibal) fails to come home, her mother Mari (Delaney) knows something is terribly wrong. Pleading to police to take her concerns seriously, she keeps pushing the police for answers. Mari’s insistence that her daughter not be overlooked eventually leads to a horror hidden on Long Island for more than a decade – 19 bodies of young women discovered buried in shallow graves along Ocean Parkway in the area of Jones Beach State Park. Though the search for the killer is still ongoing, Mari’s passionate dedication to giving her daughter and other forgotten women a voice, and the attention they deserve, has kept the case alive with hopes of a breakthrough soon. The movie not only follows a mother’s tireless search for the truth, but it also digs deep into the murders, including Shannan’s, that have gone unsolved for so long.

Delaney’s film, executive produced by Deborah Norville, is based off real life-events that transpired in the early 2010’s where the crimes were never solved.

In an interview with 98.1 WOGL Radio’s Glenn Kalina, Delaney shared: “There is hope in the film… but you also want an answer… what happened to all of these girls?  My character just was relentless trying to find her (daughter) or find answers where she was.  They found a bunch of other bodies, and what they learned was that they were all escorts… and then they learned there was a possible serial killer.”

Check out a promo for the movie below.

Last week, ABC Daytime fans were thrilled to see some of the archival footage and performances from the ABC Daytime: Salutes Broadway Cares benefit concerts by those who were once in the mighty soap programming block that included: All My Children, One Life to Live and General Hospital. 

While only GH remains, viewers still loved seeing many of their favorites perform in the streaming event, ABC Daytime: Back on Broadway, from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, which featured footage from those events that ran from 2005-2011 in front of a live audience in New York City.

The 2021 online event, which kicked-off on February 11th and streamed for four days, featured new content with daytime favorites including: Susan Lucci, Cameron Mathison, Anthony Geary, Kelly Ripa and more, plus performances from the past benefits, and an original dance performance from Finola Hughes (Anna Devane) on the set of GH.

John Dietrich, who directed each of the ABC Daytime Salutes Broadway Cares concerts, wrote and directed the stream. It was presented in partnership with ABC Owned Television Stations’ websites around the country with support from Good Morning America and The View.

According to Broadway World, in total, the ABC Daytime Back on Broadway event raised $130,565. The streaming total includes a matching donation of $50,000 made by Broadway Cares supporters The Dream Alliance.  Now, when combined with the seven-year run of the annual concerts, the ABC Daytime stars have raised $2,020,565 for Broadway Cares.

As part of the event week, Michael Fairman chatted with former One Life to Live star, Catherine Hickland (Ex-Lindsay Rappaport) about her performances over the years at the event, her role of Lindsay and her on-screen feud with Nora (Hillary B. Smith), and more.  You can watch it below.
