This man should be in everything. His acting is subtle, natural and visceral. He makes acting look so easy and that is a testament to his talent. He is among the greatest, yet underappreciated, actors in the genre. There’s no reason he isn’t in big television shows or doing movies. I hope he gets more opportunities and finds more success.

(Not a fan of his hawking grandiose money making schemes or what have you. I think he’s better than that.)

I’m so … sick.. of the focus…. @GH.. lack of production value.

they do not read .. care.. or mind

the dire dullard : Sonny and Carly ; BM Jason and Sam ; Michael and Nelle ; Finn; and Franco

WOULD THIS SHOW MOVE WITHOUT ?

so I calmly put forth

the only .. other man.. who’d make Carly.. REAL

who’d make Carly… REEL

Rick Hearst as Ric Lansing @GH

kudos to the finer mindset of other productions to value what a hot commodity and surefire HIT

WOW .. how GH languishes

my best to you Mr. Hearst

I remember Rick taking over the role of Matt on Y&R from Eddie Cibrian when Matt returned to Y&R…Rick Hearst in my opinion is one of my favorite actors…Rick is a class act…

Would have made a much better Blake as he is a much better actor than Grant Show.

He will probably be Adam. Although with the gray hair he might actually look older than Blake. Lol.

How about Dex Dexter? Now please cast Tiffani Theissen as Alexis, ASAP!

shucks – I get confused on whether this is a guest spot.. recurring etc

like I had hoped with Michael Muhney on @The good doctor

it just doesn’t follow.. @GH

WHAT power Maurice Benard and Laura Wright must have

to be allowed to suck up so much air time

they just stink together…

I even try to post that Rick Hearst is the only – man – she’s every come across as a woman

same goes for Sonny… he’s so dull.. the only other woman who meets him eye to eye.. is Dahlia Salem ex Claire Walsh

if these two actors “think” they are all that and a bag of chips

ratings prove otherwise

the increase is in fact for .. Steve Burton.. and that jump will have to be WRITTEN FOR.. once the reveal of who’s who and who’s the real Jason

OK – I couldn’t believe what magic and chemistry between Leslie Charleson and Billy Miller… once again… were they at the Quartermaine crypt ?

who couldn’t feel the mother / son relationship just solidify and .. when watching both of their faces.. just knocked me over

let Billy Miller be Drew – that way .. now bonded.. and with BM tough stance and yet sensitive portrayal… he already has an easy passage and path toward the Quartermaine familial.

Steve Burton cannot act past his bug eye
let Carly and Sonny and Sam kiss his arse… end of show

I don’t watch the show but congrats to Rick for landing the role. Of course I’d love to see him back on GH…for that matter, he’d fit in nicely with several prime time shows. Surprised he hasn’t been scooped up sooner.

Enjoyed Rick Hearst on GL and GH. Not so sure about the Dynasty reboot as the CW is a failing network. ABC should have brought it back just as CBS should have brought back the Dallas reboot over TNT. But TNT did a better job than the CW will ever do.

Rick Hearst’s new role on the CW’s Dynasty Reboot could mean one of the following…
1. Adam Carrington/Michael Torrance
2. Dex Dexter
3. Mark Jennings (Krystle’s hunky ex-husband)

Who knows……….

jaybird369, I like your options! I’m rethinking the Dex Dexter thing because Alexis has to be there first… I fondly remember the characters you mentioned. God, I miss that show…

GH’s Maurice Benard Memoir Available Now For Pre-Order

One of the most highly-anticipated autobiography’s, Maurice Benard’s (Sonny Corinthos, GH) Nothing General About It, is set for release on April 7th of 2020.  But now according to the book publisher, HarperCollins, you can pre-order your copy of the riveting real-life story of Benard now by heading on over to Amazon  to make your purchase.

According to the log lines and publisher notes: “In Nothing General About It, Maurice looks back to his youth in a small town and his tenuous relationship with his father. He describes how his bipolar disorder began to surface in childhood, how he struggled to understand the jolting mood swings he experienced, and how a doctor finally saved his life. For years Maurice was relentless in his goal to be a successful actor. But even after he “made it,” he still grappled with terrifying lows, breakdowns, and setbacks, all while trying desperately to maintain his relationship with his wife, who endured his violent, unpredictable episodes. Maurice holds nothing back as he bravely talks about what it was like to be medicated and institutionalized, and of how he learned to manage his manic episodes while on the set of GH. 

HarperCollins

Nothing General About It is also an incredible love story about an enduring marriage that demonstrates what those vows—for better, for worse, in sickness and in health—truly mean. Maurice also pays tribute to the community that has been there for him through thick and thin, and ruminates on the importance of both inherited and created family.”
