Friday marked the exit of Matt Cohen as Dr. Griffin Munro on ABC’s General Hospital.  In key scenes, after getting into an altercation with Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), and realizing he has lost his way, the good doc resigns from GH, and decides to head out of town.

In addition on Friday, the CW announced that after 15 seasons it is ending the hit series, Supernatural, which Cohen has also appeared and been a key part of many Supernatural fan conventions.

Series stars Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles (Ex-Eric Days), and Misha Collins made the announcement in a video posted on Instagram  “We just told the crew that even though we’re very excited to be moving into our 15th season, it will be our last,” Ackles said. “15 years of a show that has certainly changed my life, I know it’s changed these two guys’ lives, and we just wanted you to here from us that though we’re excited about next year, it will be the finale.”  The final season will consist of 20 episodes.

After the airing of his final scenes on General Hospital, and the news of Supernatural coming to an end, Matt tweeted:  “Tough day. Emotionally. My last episode of @GeneralHospital aired. And @cw_spn announced its final season. I am grateful to all the fantastic casts, crews, and fandoms I have been able meet along the way. It’s all those experiences that have helped me grow into the man I am today.”

Lin…I’m thinking Griffin could go to a monastery or some spiritual retreat for a while to pull himself together again. Then he could come back to Port Charles a healed man. I can’t help but think that it wasn’t just his last behavior towards Kevin that made him realized he lost himself, but also some guilt over leaving Ava for Kiki the way he did.

I have to “Laud” this man “farewell”

I once likened, him… to Robert Forster… check him out… in “Jackie Brown” w/ Pam Grier.. he played Max cherry… the “likeness” is startling. in one of my favorite “love” story

Matt Cohen has all the Potential to feature

Salute

In a few months he should come back as Lucky, with Gene Farber as Nikolas. Laura needs her sons at her side

If Jonathan Jackson doesn’t want to return, the logical choice would be Jacob Young, who won an Emmy as Lucky and is readily available. No need to go for a 4th Lucky.

I really like the character and the fine actor, Matt Cohen. I wish him great success and know he will do well. Maybe one fine day, he might return to GH. Thank goodness his character was left in a way where he could return.

Best of luck to the actor..That said, his acting was ok at best and the character of Griffin was just dull from day one till the end due to the poor writing regime…This show has needed new head writers for a couple of years now..I still watch because of some solid actors in the cast and the best directors in soaps!!

Can this old lady get her two cents in? Acting, acting? All he has to do is stand there. This guy is hilarious in real life. Saw him on stage, on one of Michael’s videos. I’ll miss him.

God!! Matt is soooo hot!!
Nonetheless, I did not like what TPTB did to his exit scene. Griffin is broken; angry; miserable….I get it. He is still grieving understandable. But, so pitiful??
I just wish his “adieu” had been less painful and more….”til we meet again”-like..
I guess there was nothing left for Griffin, other than watch him capitulate into another fisticuffs scenario.
Happy Trail, Matt…

If TPTB had been even slightly interested in writing from the Devane-Lavery family POV, Matt could’ve gotten an amazing story. So Jean and Shelley wrote him in as Duke’s son then after that, everything went to hell in a handbasket as there was no Justice for a truly dead Duke (as TPTB who are anti-SuperCouple liked to say “dead dead”), Julian did not pay any consequences for killing Duke and forcing him into Turkish prison for perhaps decades (as well as betraying Anna & Duke decades ago). Then to add insult to injury, Griffin was pulled out of Anna’s scenes… Read more »

Irene Cara, Best-Known For Smash Hits ‘Fame’ and ‘Flashdance… What A Feeling’, Dead at 63

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”

Amazon Freevee To Bring Back Iconic Australian Soap ‘Neighbours’ with All-New Episodes

In an absolutely stunning twist, the beloved Australian soap opera Neighbours which was canceled after 37 years and aired its final episode in late July after nearly 9,000 episodes, is coming back!

Amazon Freevee and the show’s producer, Fremantle have revealed that they are set to revitalize the soap opera and it will premiere exclusively, and for free, on the streamer in the UK and U.S.

In addition, this will include streaming rights to thousands of episodes from the previous seasons, which will be available to view prior to the launch of the new season.  Neighbours will also be available via Prime Video; in Australia, New Zealand and Canada.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, word is that new episodes will begin shooting in Australia next year.  Cast already signed-on include: Stefan Dennis, Alan Fletcher, Ryan Moloney and Jackie Woodburne who return to reprise their leading roles.

In a way, this news is a bit reminiscent of Prospect Park’s online save of All My Children and One Life to Live, when the company originally had hoped to move the soaps immediately and seamlessly following their network TV broadcast ending, to their new online home, only to run into pitfalls to eventually launch a year later.

Back in March, Neighbours ran into funding issues, when its key UK broadcast partner, Channel 5 pulled out and their attempts at finding alternative funding never panned out.

In a statement, Lauren Anderson, head of AVOD original content and programming at Amazon Studios, expressed: “Neighbours has captivated its audience for nearly 40 years, building a dedicated and loyal following for the lives and stories of the characters on Ramsay Street. With the power of streaming, we’re able to offer a catalog of thousands of Neighbours episodes for new audiences to discover this legendary series and current fans to relive their favorite moments. We look forward to immersing the audience in new Ramsay Street experiences when we relaunch the show next year for Amazon Freevee and Prime Video customers.”

Jennifer Mullin, global CEO, Fremantle added: “Neighbours is a unique series with a powerful connection with its fans across the world. We cherish the show and all those who have been part of its incredible story over many decades, so we are thrilled that we have found a new home with Amazon Freevee. Thanks to the innovative Amazon Freevee platform, many classic episodes will be available to fans, and Neighbours will go back into full production in Australia early next year, providing our fans with new episodes. This partnership with Amazon Freevee marks an exciting new chapter, and we look forward to collaborating with them, along with our long-term and valued partner in Australia, Network 10.”

Previously, Neighbours ended its 37-year run with a memorable final episode where many of its most well-known stars returned to make an appearance including:  Margot Robbie, Kylie Minogue, Jason Donovan and Guy Pearce.  The episode scored the soaps highest ratings since 2019.

You can watch a teaser for Neighbours in their upcoming new home below, and a social media teaser from the series itself.

During a break from DAYS, Robert went over to Y&R and created the role of Pierre Roulland when the CBS daytime drama first premiered from 1973-1974, and once again sang and acted on the show.  Later in his career, Clary appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful in the role of Pierre Jourdan from 1990-1992.

Four decades into his career, Robert, who was Jewish, came forward with the fact that was incarcerated for 31 months in an Auschwitz concentrate camp, and tattooed with the identification “A-5714” on his left forearm. He was the only one of his captured family to make it out alive.
