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…

General Hospital Receives Honor From Ruderman Family Foundation

General Hospital was one of five television shows that has been named and honored by the Ruderman Family Foundation for their accurate depictions of people with disabilities.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the soap received the recognition for the casting of Maysoon Zayid who portrayed Shilohs’s (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) lawyer, Zahra Amir.

Zayid is an actress and disabilities advocate living with cerebral palsy. In addition, Maysoon is also one of America’s first Muslim women comedians.  Zayid said landing on GH was a “lifelong dream,” after finding it difficult to land roles due to her disability.

Along with GH, the foundation’s seal of authentic representation went to: Netflix’s Tales of the City and Raising Dion, and BBC/HBO’s Years and Years and Audience’s Loudermilk, great company for the ABC daytime drama series to be included with.

Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation expressed in a statement. “By giving credit where credit is due in Hollywood, we hope to inspire a broader, longer-term, industry-wide sea change when it comes to authentically casting actors of all abilities.”

In addition, Frank Valentini, executive producer of General Hospital stated: “Our goal has always been to provide stories that are authentic and relatable for our viewers. Having the opportunity to welcome Maysoon Zayid onto the show was exciting for us. She is an incredible talent and was a perfect fit to guest-star as Zahra Amir. It takes all kinds of people to tell a story; especially those that are rich and entertaining enough to resonate with our audience.”

Networks To Preempt Daytime Programming For Donald Trump Impeachment Hearing Coverage

Just as your favorite soaps are kicking into high gear for November sweeps next week, comes the news that due to the House public impeachment hearings on President Donald Trump, daytime programming will endure several pre-mptions starting with the first two on Wednesday November 13th and Friday, November 15th.

CBS was the first network to announce their plans for their extensive coverage, and according to the Washington Post all other networks have followed suit.  By this move by the networks it gives the hearing some extra weight and exposure to the American voters and viewing audience.

So far, leading network coverage for CBS will be reportedly anchored by Norah O’Donnell and for ABC George Stephanopoulos.

On Wednesday, the hearings begin at 10am EST, the second is scheduled for Friday beginning at 11am EST.

William Taylor, the U.S. diplomat in the Ukraine, is scheduled to testify Wednesday and on Friday Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, is scheduled to testify.

The networks are expecting big numbers for covering the hearings, as they have in the past for impeachment proceedings and hearings.

No word yet how the soaps plan for you to see the episodes that don’t air at their regularly scheduled times, or if it shifts your soap viewing schedule by several days.
