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!

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.

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.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
