While Morgan’s death has caused a huge rift and ripple effect through the entire Corinthos clan, needless to say Bryan Craig’s (Ex-Morgan) departure from General Hospital left a large hole in his on-screen TV family, but is also providing the cast with great story in which they turn in even greater performances.

Craig, who a few weeks back teased he booked and then was shooting his first film project following the end of his run as the troubled Morgan, posted a photo of himself as a shaved skinhead with a bandana around his face touting he has been cast in a new feature called Ride and playing the role of “Jack”.

This week however, ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting more intel on Craig’s movie role!  The feature Ride is based on the true story of BMX champion John Buultjens, a teen who was on the road to ruin before being fostered by an interracial couple. The father, played by award-winning actor/rapper Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, buys the young man his first bicycle which starts him on a path to success.

According to SID, the film is still in production so an actual release date is still yet to be determined.

So, what do you think now of Craig’s new role? Sounds like a great fit for this Daytime Emmy-winning actor, wouldn’t you say? Comment below!

Too much a big deal on Morgan…the family emotionally upset continues…Carly’s grief goes on and on…but for Nicholas Cassidine i blinked and the Spenser/Cassidine families grief was gone in a split second…both characters will sooner or later return anyway….so im not on the edge of my seat waiting…sigh!!!!

I’m really happy for Bryan. Met him at multiple fan events, and he is as nice as he is talented. He deserves, and has earned, his success. I’m looking forward to seeing the film when it’s released.

Well, I wish this talented young actor the best. I enjoyed most of his performances and I admire his dedication to the very emotional bipolar story. But I’m too busy panicking right now over these Internet rumors that Steve Burton MIGHT (though there’s nothing to corroborate this) return to GH, maybe as Jason. Oh, Celia and many of you other Billy Miller fans, what will we (I) do if that means Billy M. will be gone? How will I get along without my favorite soap actor? I may have to start a support group. Has anyone heard anything beyond rumors?

I’ve seen those rumors too about Steve Burton. Once he left Y&R, it was only a matter of time before the rumor mill started churning about him returning to GH. Could be an interesting story if everything worked out, where maybe Billy Miller really isn’t Jason, sort of like what OLTL did with Trevor St. John and Roger Howarth. Of course, that’s a big if, as no one knows if there is anything to the rumors at this point I know Billy is a good actor, you don’t win the awards he’s won for nothing. But I’ve just never warmed… Read more »

I hear you… DAYTIME took a huge dive and spiral… without Michael Muhney. by the way : I was so surprised to see a picture of him… an actual MM sighting… was a picture of him… getting 7 stitches… something about skin cancer ? i’m not sure on that – SOD issue from last week I WILL be surprised… if GH renews Billy Miller contract. there is little to BUZZ about Sam and Jason GH needs to completely overhaul his character … why not make him a doctor ? imagine if he balks at this and wants to be stone… Read more »

There is no buzz about Sam and Jason, but this network seems incapable of admitting when they are wrong and actually listening to it’s fans

I hated the part with Carly talking about Julian being arrogant and does what he wants…that he killed Duke…she just described Scummy Corinthos who killed AJ…then you have Micheal who is upset with Sonny whom he blames for Morgan’s alleged death yet he forgives him for murdering his birth father AJ….

AJ was alive when Sonny left Ava’s apartment. Ava killed off AJ.

I wish him the best of everything he goes through and good luck to you. But I think the sure replace him and general Hospital I don’t think the cancels should go through the heartache of losing their sons very just stressful and I would love to see sunny and Carly stay longer together. They should have just pulled him out of the river Michael

Wishing Bryan much success in his future. I don’t think they should bring another actor in as Morgan. As for Steve Burton, never felt Billy Miller was Jason. He just never was righr in the part. Would welcome Steve back

I’ve been watching GH since I was a little girl I love the story lines I love The Afters I think they all do a great job this one storyline of Morgan dying really broke my heart and it touched my heart it’s really hard for parents to lose a child and I felt that heartbreak with Carly and Sonny there’s nothing like a Parent’s Love

We can likely deduce Steve is not coming back to GH. He had a sweetheart deal with Jill at Y&R that no one is likely to duplicate at Y&R or, anywhere else. Top salary, lots of time off to be home in Nashville with his family including the newest addition and to work his other businesses, etc. Also, Michael Muhney was clearly fired almost three years ago from Y&R, black-balled and limited to ‘D’ grade films. He received a rigorous defense from his fans but, never denied the rumored reason for his dismissal so I’m definitely not expecting him back… Read more »

GH’s Brook Kerr and Tabyana Ali Talk On: Trina’s Trial, Spencer and Rory, And Their On-Screen Mother/Daughter Relationship

Currently, General Hospital fans are awaiting the verdict in Trina’s trial and just what lengths her mother will go to in order to secure her freedom! With the story playing out on-air, Michael Farman chatted in a new virtual interview with the two women central to the story; Brook Kerr (Portia) and Tabyana Ali (Trina).

As viewers know, Trina was set-up by Esme Prince (Avery Pohl), to make it appear that she taped her best friends, Cameron (William Lipton) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) having sex, and then posted the video from her phone, so it went viral.

During the conversation for You Tube’s Michael Fairman Channel, Tabyana and Brook weigh-in on what’s gone down at the trial including; how Spencer Cassadine came forward with an alibi for Trina, plus how Portia may put her medical career at risk if she brings Esme’s partner in crime, Oz, out of his coma to get the evidence they need to point the finger on Esme.

 

In addition, Tabyana and Brook share their thoughts on the men in Trina’s life: Spencer Cassadine (Nicholas Alexander Chavez) and Rory Cabrera (Michael Blake Kruse), and how the #Sprina has a life of its own on social media.

Brook also shares dishes on Portia’s romantic relationship with Curtis (Donnell Turner), plus the recent noteworthy scenes between Portia and Stella (Vernee Watson), where GH shed light on a mother’s concern; that racial injustice could factor in to the jury’s decision in Trina’s case.

Tabyana also discusses working alongside GH co-stars, Maura West (Ava) and Carolyn Hennesy (Diane), and what it was like taking over the role of Trina from popular fan favorite, Sydney Mikayla.

Kin Shriner Celebrates 45-Year Milestone as General Hospital’s Scott Baldwin

What would General Hospital be without Kin Shriner, who has always played Scott Baldwin to the hilt with unique style and acting chops? Today on August 2nd, Kin marks his 45th anniversary with the ABC daytime drama series, and the series just would never be the same without his four decades plus of performances, making him an enduring fan favorite.

Shriner debuted on GH back on this date in 1977.  Scott’s love story with Laura (Genie Francis) would begin to set a new trajectory for GH. Later, when Laura married Luke (Tony Geary) in 1981, and Scott made a shocking appearance at the reception and caught the bouquet, the character turned to the dark side which started a new era of story for Scott/Laura/Luke and more.

Scott is the stepson of attorney, Lee Baldwin (the late Peter Hansen) and Dr. Gail Adamson (the late Susan Brown); although through the years they tangled over differences, the family loved and cared for one another.

In more recent years, Scott’s legal eagle courtroom antics are always a must-see for viewers, as well as any time Shriner gets to show Scott’s emotional side, such as the time he learned his son Franco (Roger Howarth) had died.

Photo: ABC

Kin’s scenes with his current on-screen love interest, Kathleen Gati (Liesl) are always a delight for GH fans, as well.

In addition to his General Hospital run, Shriner appeared as Scott in the GH spinoff; Port Charles from 1997-2000 and again in 2001.

Share your congratulations to Kin on his 45th anniversary in the comment section, and then let us know what has been your favorite Scott Baldwin scene through the years. 

But first, in case you missed it, check out our interview last year with Kin on the Michael Fairman Channel below.

General Hospital’s Maura West Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

On last Thursday and Friday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC soap opera finally moved the story forward with the reveal to Ava (Maura West) that Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) and Esme (Avery Pohl) slept together, and within it, fans got to witness the beginning of the fallout and the reaction as played by three-time Daytime Emmy-winner and enduring fan favorite, Maura West.

As one might expect, the material in the hands of the mighty West, and the acting choices she makes are always intriguing and masterful.

In story, things start to unravel for Ava, when outside Trina’s (Tabyana Ali) courtroom trial, Esme and Ava have a confrontation.  It is there that Esme snarks at Ava, that she has the ability to destroy her world.  When Ava dares her to try, Nikolas shows up on the scene begging Esme to stop.  However, a manipulative Esme says, “Too late, I’m ending this right here, right now.” After lighting the fire, Esme walks off telling Nikolas to have a nice chit chat with his wife.

Next, Ava and Nikolas go to a private office, and Nikolas tells her that he made a huge mistake. A now suspicious Ava, asks, “What kind of mistake?” Nikolas then goes on to explain how he slept with Esme, just once, when he thought his relationship with Ava had tanked and had suffered irreparable damage.

What comes after was where West shined, as a sarcastic Ava quipped, “Poor you, seduced by a high school graduate.”  Ava, then launches into that she thought she married a man, but instead she married a spineless weakling, and now she is going to burn him to the ground.

Later at Wyndemere, as Esme is frantically packing her suitcase and taking with her the all-important envelope linking her to Ryan (Jon Lindstrom), Ava appears and a confrontation begins with Ava calling out Esme as a, “conniving little whore”. Esme flaps back that Ava slept with both Morgan and Sonny (Maurice Benard)! Having put two and two together, Ava says she know that Esme is responsible for the revenge sex tape of Cameron (Willian Lipton) and Joss (Eden McCoyand setting fire to her car.

Courtesy/ABC

Ava has wised up from all of Esme’s nasty statements and has come to realize that everything Esme has done including sleeping with Nikolas, feels like a targeted, planned attack on her, and she knows there is more to this story than Esme has ever let on.  When Ava spots the envelope in Esme’s suitcase, she goes to get it, but Esme grabs it from her. Then, with a steely warning, Ava tells Esme that she will be going to the courthouse now to exonerate Trina, and if she doesn’t, Ava will make sure Esme disappears and no one will ever be able to find her alive.

Now, while some viewers may be waiting for a knock-down drag-out catfight, we don’t know what will happen on Monday or Tuesday’s episode, but sometimes it’s more delicious just letting the words and its intentions drive the action, and West delivered the goods in spades in scenes with Marcus Coloma and Avery Pohl.

For all the reasons stated above, Michael Fairman TV names Maura West’s work as The Power Performance of the Week.

What did you think of Maura’s performance in the scenes where Ava finds out Nikolas slept with Esme and Ava’s confrontation later with Esme? What do you hope happens next?  Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section.  But firstm check out some moments from West’s performance below.
