Perez Hilton Takes On Role Of A Reverend That Officiates B&B's Eric & Quinn's Nuptials!

The cat is finally out of the bag of just what part celebrity blogger, Perez Hilton is taking on when he shows up on CBS’ The Bold and the Beautiful beginning late next week!

Following on the heels of Chaz Bono, playing a reverend-turned-burgler on the daytime drama, this time Hilton will don the collar and preside over the controversial nuptials of Eric Forrester (John McCook) and Quinn Fuller (Quinn) as man of the cloth, Reverend Murphy.

It all goes down on the September 23rd and 26th episodes of B&B, but does Hilton actually get the duo to tie-the-knot?  Whatever the outcome, Perez chatted with TV Insider where Michael Logan asked if Hilton calling out on social media that he is indeed a big fan of B&B and the soaps, the real truth?

Perez answered: “I love all of the soap operas. I was on All My Children as an extra back in 2000, just after I graduated acting school at NYU. I had no lines and can’t remember the situation, though if Susan Lucci had been in the scene I certainly would have remembered that. But I do remember that another extra that day was Jonathan Bennett, who ended up getting cast as a regular on AMC. Then he did Mean Girls and now he does Cupcake Wars, so both our careers have gone in crazy directions. I’m so excited that I get to go back on a soap, this time with lines, and that I get to play a minister for the second time. My first time was in a movie that came out in 2008 called Another Gay Sequel, where my part was the polar opposite of the one on B&B. For a soap wedding, you’re pretty much playing it straight but in the gay movie I was the campiest, silliest, most over-the-top gay minister ever. So it was nice, with B&B, to connect with a spiritual character in a much more legit way.”

Hilton also discussed how some of his acting parts have stemmed from a trade-off of: “You scratch my back and I will scratch yours.”  Perez elaborated: “I got my role on Another Period because Natasha Leggero, who acts on the show, emailed me and said, ‘Would you mind writing something about us?’ And I said, ‘Sure, can you give me a part on your show?” After that happened, I thought, ‘Hey, I’ve got to do more of this!’ So I hit up Amy Schumer. I DM’d her on Twitter and said, ‘Can I be on your show?” And she wrote back, ‘Are you available tomorrow? (Laughs) I spent a day with her on the set and got to play her friend! I didn’t have any lines but still viewed it as a big win.”

As for how the role on B&B came about, Perez said, “That was a case where they called and asked if I was interested. I said, ‘Yes, let’s do it!’ But then weeks passed by and I didn’t hear anything back. I waited…and waited. And then I called them and said, ‘Is the offer still there? I want to do this!’ And that’s how it happened. I really, really wanted to be on B&B. In fact, I had so much fun, now I want to get ordained for real!”

I’m a fan of Eric & Quinn and LOVE the great possibilities and challenges to come with Quinn as Eric’s wife for the long haul. I sure hope to see Eric help Quinn grow into a really great and strong woman to match him!

I am liking them too! I know that is probably not going to be a popular opinion, but hey, I seem full of those lately 🙂

I hope they marry and are very happy together! Show the family they can’t be bullied! Fire all naysayers and be done with it! Show them who’s boss! I’m loving Eric and Quinn’s romance. She really has been blindsided by this whole thing. She didn’t plot any of it. Give her a break and let her be the person she wants to be!

I totally agree. I am sick and tired of the way Eric is being disrespected. If it wasn’t for him and company, everyone of those ungrateful, spoiled, money hungry brats would be jobless. If Liam was so worried about Quinn being a threat, why didn’t he have her locked up when he had the chance? Now he is crying to Wyatt about Steffie’s safety. And Steffie needs to stop hiding out at her brothers apartment and using Quinn as an excuse to string Wyatt along. If I were Wyatt I would walk out and tell her to go back to… Read more »

I ended up here while looking for pix of the wedding. I would love to see the whole dress! And it was funny, there was a pic of her wedding to Deacon in the image search, and they were all standing in front of fireplaces.

Come to think of it, who doesn’t get married in front of a fireplace on B&B? So funny since the weather there is probably still not too cold! 🙂

It sure beats watching Steffy or Wyatt or Liam marrying someone. At least there might be something new and interesting happening in the story lines. I just hope we don’t have flashback scenes of the nuptials every day for three weeks thereafter.

They are getting so overdone with the flashbacks!! I am just glad they stopped showing scenes from the Aspen wedding and Steffie walking towards Liam in those God awful boots. If I see a clip of that again, along with Brooke and Bill in the hot air balloon, I will have to scream!! I don’t want to say anymore n the subject, so as not to jinx anything. Thwnks fo listening and happy viewing!!

To me, it’s so funny, that the story is about Perez Hilton’s cameo appearance as the reverend; however, not one comment is about him. This whole “stunt” casting of a supposed “celebrity” is meant to work to get viewers to the show. I don’t see him as a celebrity at all, he’s just like all those other useless so called “celebrities”….doesn’t Brad Bell get it…we watch the shows because we care about the characters and stories, we don’t watch the show to see Chaz Bono, Perez, Bruce Jenner…..stop with the casting stunts….it’s a waste of a real actors valuable airtime… Read more »

Thank you B & B for the best wedding that I have seen in ages !!! Eric and Quinn’s wedding did not need a room full of people. They did not need some exotic location . All they needed was each other. Loved it !!!!! Now, if the writers could just give Wyatt a backbone , I would be elated !! He needs to tell snooty Steffy to go back to fickle Liam and quit using his Mom as an excuse to do so. Wyatt deserves so much better …Ivy !!! As far as Ridge, if not for Eric, he… Read more »

Ashton Arbab Says Farewell To General Hospital: “It Was Such An Honor To Have Worked Alongside Of Such Talented Actors”

Yesterday, viewers of General Hospitals witnessed that as a result of the bomb explosion at the Floating Rib; it meant the end of the road for a couple of characters.  One of those was Dev, and thus ends Ashton Arbab’s over two-year run in the role.

In key scenes, Dev dies in the ambulance ride to the hospital and thanks Sonny (Maurice Benard) for making him a part of the family and tells Sonny to tell Josslyn (Eden McCoy) that he is sorry.  Will Sonny recall what Dev said and pass that on to Joss? Will anyone figure out Dev’s duplicity in keeping Joss and Cameron (William Burton) apart? Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Ashton took to Twitter on Tuesday and shared these words of praise and ‘thank you’ for his time on the ABC daytime drama series.

 

Arbab expressed: “I am forever grateful to Producer Frank Valentini and Mark Teschner (casting director, GH) for this amazing opportunity. It was such an honor to have worked along side of such talented actors and I’m beyond blessed for your friendship. Most of all thank you General Hospital fans.”

So, what did you think of Dev being killed-off? Will you miss Ashton? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

Mark Lawson Shares Heartfelt Sentiments As He Exits General Hospital

General Hospital fans knew Monday’s episode would bring with it who might have survived the explosion at the Floating Rib, and who might still be in peril or who did not make out.

This afternoon as viewers were learning the fate of several characters including Dustin, who was proposing to Lulu (Emme Rylan) as the bomb went off, his portrayer, Mark Lawson took to his Instagram to announce his exit from the series.

Mark expressed: “Actors know this moment is bittersweet.  Job well done, but leaving a set full of like-minded, inspired people. Playing Dustin was a joy. Every day on set was a gift, as were: Emme Rylan, Kirsten Storms, Brian Lane, Dominic Zamprogna, Lisa LoCicero, Maurice Benard, Bradford Anderson (And others that don’t have social media!) Thank you General Hospital. Honored to be part of television history not only on this show, but to be among the first actors back to work in town post-Covid. The set always felt safe, and I was proud to be in front of the camera in such a strange time  Thank you for everything.  Stay soapy.”

Check out Mark’s post below.

So, are you sad that Dustin is no longer on the canvas in Port Charles? Will you miss Mark in the role? Comment below.
