OLTL Favorite Mark Lawson Appears On General Hospital

Photo: JPI

Viewers of ABC daytime were in a for a surprise (although rumors had been circulating), when former One Life to Live alum, Mark Lawson showed up on Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital.   In it, Mark came on to the Port Charles scene as Dustin Phillips, a man Lulu (Emme Rylan) was meeting with at the Metro Court for her “story” on online dating, and a potential suspect in the home burglaries tied to a dating app.

Meanwhile, while Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) is away originally being deprogrammed from his nightmare in Turkey, Peter (Wes Ramsey) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) got news from Mac (John J. York) that there may be a lead to his whereabouts in Ithaca, New York,

Maxie is taking it upon herself to locate Dante and bring him back to Lulu.  In addition, when she noticed Lulu enjoying the company of Dustin a bit too much, she was somewhat alarmed that her bff would be having a good time with another man.

It’s been a minute since daytime fans have seen Lawson, who played Navy Seal, Brody Lovett on One Life.  His character was involved with Jessica (Bree Williamson) and all of her alters: Tess, Bess, Wes, et,c and also Jessica’s sister, Natalie (Melissa Archer).

Once fans got wind of his GH appearance, Lawson posted on Instagram along with his workout videos: “Well .. cat’s out of the bag, Stay soapy, my friends.”

So, will Mark continue on GH as a new love interest for Lulu?  Could Dustin be tied to the crimes Lulu is investigating? Would you like to see Lulu move on with her life if Dante is off the canvas for a long time, or do you hope Dominic Zamprogna returns, and there becomes a triangle, or none of the above? Let us know what should happen for Luly in the romance department via the comment section below.

I thought he looked familiar but couldn’t place him. I also hadn’t read this post before seeing him on GH. He had a lot of chemistry with Emme, so if they aren’t bringing Dominic back ~ which would be stupid ~ Mark might be fun…even with a character that isn’t already married.

It was Dom’s choice to leave; he’s said that while he might be open to making an occasional appearance he’s not ready to resume the role permanently…if ever. So, he wasn’t let go.

looking for delete option; this comment was originally to correct something I already wrote but I edited it. So..this is a filler since the site won’t let box be empty.

I was hoping he would join the show as a recast for Lucky. We need the character back in Port Charles, especially now that Chase seems to be the only detective at the PCPD. Valerie is barely on and I’m not sold on the new actress playing her. I’d take a recast Lucky over nuValerie any day. But, it will be interesting to see if Dustin has any connections to Port Charles already. Mark is a good actor, so hopefully GH uses his talents well.

Peter & Maxie are SO boring. Also boring, their third wheel, Lulu. It’s Summer, and there is no excitement, heat, or drama.

Couldn’t agree more! I do NOT see the appeal of Maxie and Peter! And Lulu is boring and annoying these days with her investigative reporting…lol. Its so ridiculous.

Hey, DMRR—-I soooo agree with you—They’re young; yet their conversations are so wishy-washy—and they’re always sitting around, eating or talking about Lulu. Lulu!! Mamma mia!! This stupid storyline must be the most nauseating one of all—-to catch a thief through pretend dating? Gimme a break!–what’s up with these writers?. I am glad Hayden is back—a welcome distraction, at least. I know many do not like her, but she’s, nonetheless, interesting. As I said when she left; Hayden did not lose the baby–he/she is alive and well. I do believe this is a secret that is festering within her. She has… Read more »

Ciao, Bella! It’s been too long since we’ve crossed paths! Hope you had a memorable and enjoyable 4th! Other than taking the occasional peek at my old favorites, I haven’t been “hanging out” in Port Charles for awhile, but my word, when I read about the lackluster activities going on this summer, I feel as though I’m not missing a thing! (Although Dr. O and her latest antics may yet save the day….hope her drunken, foreshadowing? utterances bring some welcome drama back to this currently boring burg!) As for Hayden, I am sorry to see her return….I know you abhor… Read more »

Hi, Shaybelle… Thank you—very busy summer—we’ve been taking, short, week-end vacays , here and there—the children wanted to go to Fire Island Saturday and Sunday…….of course, my son needed to investigate why it is called Fire Island—Who knows what was going on in his head, LOL. He expected to see fire everywhere. We had to explain that “Fire” was supposed to have been “Five”—-Oops, Shay—I guess “typos” existed since the Cuneiform script, LOL. We will go away for the month of August—won’t stop me from peeking in….. I am questioning why Haden is back. To cause havoc? Is she Jax’s… Read more »

Well, CeeCeeGirl, color me amazed that “Five” or “Fire” Island is considered a family-friendly place to visit! Given its long-held reputation as a flamin’ hot spot of decadent adult activities, I never would have imagined that it was “kid-approved!” Lol….Then again, that’s what I love about your posts….not only are they highly-entertaining, but also extremely informative! Hope everyone had a wonderful time!!! (By the way, have you taken the kinder to Philly yet? Great things to see there…The Franklin Institute is absolutely amazing and of course, the “Old City” with Independence Hall, the Ross House, et al, really brings to… Read more »

LOL, my Shay—-Fire Island and its fiery, dinful ( not a typo; den+sinful)—–reputation—not to worry–lots of security around. Nico and cousins are going through the pirate phase (yet still holding on to his interest in ‘space’). They want to visit every island off NYC and beyond. Yeah–Right!! We would never stop feeding his imagination. He actually loves Chappy—-great for exploration. You know what a nerd I am, Shay……I know things that normal, sane people would never even think of pursuing. Fire Island is fifth of the five islands–thus, “Five”— however there are ever so many ‘ifs’ and ‘ buts’—who really… Read more »

I’ve never thought of you as a “nerd,” CeeCeeGirl! Just brilliant and inquisitive…seems you have passed on those qualities to Nico! (Seriously, why don’t you simply buy him his own island for Christmas? I know there are many private ones surrounding NYC..in fact, I recently saw one on the market with its own magnificent home…I loved it!) But really…he sounds like a great kiddo!!! No doubt down to fabulous parenting!…Now then, on to Port Charles! ‘Tis a true shame that you never had the opportunity to enjoy Michael Easton as both the vampire Caleb Morley—-and his alter ego(s)—-on the GH… Read more »

Hey, Shaybelle, Don’t give Jude any ideas of buying an island, LOL….father and son are two peas in a pod. Do you know that Nico is an inch aller than I? He reminds me of that fact daily. As far as Easton, I loved him on OLTL as John McBain. He and “Natalie” fit so well as a couple—loved those days–sigh!! As you know, I have only been watching GH for five years—but, I must say I agree with you—the remaining soaps leave a bitter taste in my mouth—a steady progression to the summit only to dive into the dark… Read more »

You are always most welcome for the positive comments…I just call them as I see them, CeeCeeGirl! As for the disappointing current state of daytime drama, I hear you! In terms of GH, I’m quite pleased that Robert Scorpio looks to be back in Port Charles for the longterm, well, whatever that means in “soapspeak!” Beyond that, I remain wholly unimpressed! And speaking of that subject, I feel compelled to mention that things just keep getting uglier and uglier from that one particular aforementioned character/actress for whom I hold no regard! Now she’s online attacking the First Daughter’s choice of… Read more »

Hi, Shay, I don’t always go on all the sites; nor follow all the threads diligently…..I missed that particular one, I guess—which is a good thing. I would not want to revisit those very dark, ourageously scathing days. I would think we’ve all grown up and moved away from that neighborhood. I suppose irreverence is an inherent, natural parasite for some—-need to shake it off or ‘pass’ it. LOL. None of us should give a hoot, Shay….bad for our health and our aura. We want to breathe in clean air, not fetid ‘vapors’…..Life is too short to waste one minute… Read more »

Well, CeeCeeGirl, in theory, I could not agree with you more…I had also hoped that “neighborhood” had been vacated, too…but apparently, not completely. You know that in the past, I ignored a lot of really appalling, nasty replies to my inbox without engaging and that remains my policy, but one shouldn’t have to resort to such lengths. Up until recently, it had been very pleasant to once again visit here to mix and mingle with a variety of posters sans the vitriol..it had been a long time since I even felt like doing so again, and I found the experience… Read more »

Hey, Shaybelle, I am so glad I do not follow ANYTHING on Social Media…..MF sites are my only ‘outlet’. I do exchange photos and ‘stuff’ with family and close friends on Instagram ( not for public consumption–private) —trust me, it’s healthier. LOL. “They” have nothing left. I do not fall into propaganda or indoctrination. Our ancestors came here to get away from totalitarian oppression—to be independent from the clutches of greedy political power—socialism is not progression ( as these un-American idealists see themselves) –but, rather, regression.

Of course, I take your eloquently worded point, CeeCeeGirl! But having said that, given all the venom and hatred currently being spewed in the world—which we already have no choice but to ignore on a daily basis—we should be able to come here to escape such realities by exchanging pleasantries and soap chat without being rudely badgered for voicing our viewpoints! Furthermore, it would seem that 99.9% of posters are of that same mind when sharing their opinions, opposing or otherwise, since the interactions at this website have vastly improved and had been extremely civilized for quite some time, which… Read more »

How wonderful would it be to see Melissa Archer and Michael Easton reunited again. Damn but he needs his fiery redhead! Agree with you on Anna and Finn. They’ve been propped by everyone and their mother in Port Charles. She is better suited with Robert.

Hi, Marianne, Believe me, my friend…..I was such a huge fan of Anna and Alex on AMC— When I started watching GH, I maintained my fondness for Anna….. However, something transformed the character along the way….the writers, in my opinion, slowly but surely, they did a number on her. She was no longer the keen, sniffing hound(ette) of yore, hell-bent on finding baddies. It seemed as though being paired with Finn regressed her into girlish-mode…..her investigations became game-like, with Finn in tow. Too much for me to handle—Frustration-City!! Furthermore—one of the most mis-matched couples on soaps. I prefer a little… Read more »

didn’t the character say he was a teacher? so yeah, he’ll be around as the high school teacher for the teens. he looks good still, and Lulu was giving him those I’m tempted looks, something will happen for sure even if Dante comes back, Lulu will still resent Dante for leaving there for she will be tempted.

I doubt if Dom is ever returning, at least full time, so it’s time he’s written out permanently.
Lulu needs to move on, and I wouldn’t mind if it was with Dustin/Mark. Just make him a decent guy…please! I don’t want him involved with the dating/burglary scam.

Hi, denisefan,
Was Brody Lovett heroic? My memory is a little fuzzy. I know he was a Navy Seal and was well accepted in Llanview—I remember he was involved with multiple females ( was busy for a little guy, LOL…..specifically, Gigi, Jessica and Natalie, if I’m not mistaken. ….. but didn’t he turn “bad” later.
I truly am stumped now. Maybe I’m getting him confused with someone else?

I think you have the right guy, Celia. Brody took a partial turn for the worse toward the end; I’m fuzzy on the details, but didn’t he keep the secret that the baby he thought was his son was actually what’s his name’s (the guy Michael Easton played) son? I say “partial” because Brody could never be really bad, and he did it because he had already lost at least one child and couldn’t bear to lose another one (again, I’m foggy on some of those details, too, but I have the broad lines of that right). He had a… Read more »

Hi, Michael,
Thank you for replying, my friend. You brought it all back. Yes, that baby mess was the catalyst for Brody’s mental state.
Oh, my gosh…I had forgotten about Ford…..WOW!! How I miss that show…..and AMC…and AW….so much!!

Great actor. Remember him from oltl. I would like him to stick around but not with Lulu, who I think is the most annoying character on GH. He might be a good match for Maxie.

Loved Mark on OLTL so I was happy to hear he was coming to GH. When I heard he was “going to be in town” I thought he’d make a great Lucky recast but, since they didn’t go in that direction, he might be an interesting pairing with Lulu. They definitely had chemistry on screen.

Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’ Acquired by Fox in the U.S.

Great news for fans of former GH star Vinessa Antoine (Ex-Jordan).  The Canadian legal drama, Diggstown, in which she stars has found an American broadcasting home via news today that Fox has acquired the series.

Fox has picked up twelve episodes for seasons one and two of the drama.

In Diggstown, Antoine stars as Marcie Diggs, a star corporate lawyer who reconsiders her priorities and moves to work in a legal-aid office after her beloved aunt takes her own life following the pressures of a malicious prosecution.

 

The series explores issues of social injustice among other topical matters and universal themes. The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics, and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice. They work directly in the community to find justice for their varied clients. Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.

Deadline broke the news of the acquisition, which will help the network during the Covid-19 pandemic and production shutdowns, to have programming ready to go while other shows continue to get up and running.

No word yet on when Fox might air Diggstown in its primetime line-up.

So, excited to see Vinessa in the legal drama when the show airs on Fox? Comment below.

When Martin Met Jackie (AKA All My Children’s Tad and Jenny) on General Hospital

If you caught Monday’s episode of General Hospital, the ABC daytime drama snuck in a ‘wink-wink nudge-nudge’ to viewers of the once dominant ABC daytime soap opera line-up.

Since Kim Delaney was announced as coming to GH to take on the role of ace investigative journalist, Jackie Templeton, longtime All My Children viewers noted that she at some point could be reunited with her former All My Children TV brother, Michael E. Knight, because they are both now in Port Charles.

Courtesy/ABC

The one time Tad and Jenny Gardner of Pine Valley got re-acquainted on yesterday’s episode when Martin interrupted a conversation between Jackie and her son, Chase (Josh Swickard).  When he did, Jackie looks at Martin and says, “Do I know you?”   She looks as though she is trying to place exactly where she knows that face from, and from there the two eventually share their first one-on-one scenes as their new soap alter-egos.

In the moment, Martin wants Jackie to investigate what happened to his mother, Florence, and reveals to Jackie that his bio-brother is Cyrus Renault (Jeff Kober), which perks up Jackie to probably do some digging.

For many, it was great to see Michael and Kim together again, and here’s hoping GH can capitalize on it in future scenes.

So did you enjoy the nod to All My Children history on yesterday’s GH between Jackie and Martin aka Jenny and Tad? Comment below.

General Hospital to Incorporate In-Story ‘GMA3: What You Need to Know’ Jackie Templeton & Sasha Gilmore Interview

In a crossover of sorts, on the upcoming, Wednesday, January 27 episode of General Hospital, the daytime drama series will bring the characters of Jackie Templeton (Kim Delaney) and Sasha Gilmore (Sofia Mattsson) to its true lead-in, GMA3: What You Need to Know, but in a fictitious way for a revealing and explosive interview.

The scene is set in the Metro Court in Port Charles, and Jackie, the ace reporter and journalist has some tough questions for Sasha during their sit-down interview.  The in-story tie-in helps promote both shows in the ABC afternoon line-up.

Soap Opera Digest, who first brought the news of the mash-up in their latest issue, revealed that the moment is “being played as a remote segment for the ABC news and lifestyle program.”

However, there will be no one from GMA3 appearing on the Wednesday episode.

So what do you think will happen during the Jackie/Sasha sit-down? Comment below.
