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.

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… Read more »

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 Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
