Very excting news for Roger. I have been a fan of his since 1992. I say its about time Roger branch out and work in Primetime and in movies. Roger is an excellent actor. I can’t wait to watch him on Californication. Congrats Roger you deserve all the sucess in the world.:)

I hope so! He has more than proven himself as diverse and capable actor! I will follow him as I have always done, but I was first introduced to his talent when he played Todd. And it is my wish that he somehow continue that role. But, we all must grow and sometimes that means leaving somethings behind! Keep moving forward Roger and congrats!

Fantastic !! And on channels that I subscribe to.
I don’t like him as Franco so unfortunately I have not been watching GH as much lately.
Since FX Canada sacked AMC and OLTL from the network, I don’t get to see RH play Todd either….and I am not about to pay iTunes Canada 100 smacks for 50 episodes.
FTR I’d watch him in any prime time venture – he’s already got the series Prey and Dawson’s Creek under his belt.

Love him as Todd Manning on OLTL – hope he does this along with Californication. Must totally agree with you about the Franco thing – that is EPIC FAIL! Best of luck and much success to Roger Howarth.

Itll be interesting to see daytimes best actor in other roles especially primetime but didnt he do some primetime series years ago…im sure i saw him in something. Also Vincent(AMCs David) is another actor who should be doing some primetime shows. Lynne Herring(GH) too! Lynne would make a perfect guest appearance on Hot In Cleveland!

I think Roger Hogarth is a really great actor and wish him much success in his career. I just hope he will continue to stay on OLTL as Todd – he is soooo perfect playing that character. I do see him going on to Prime Time Shows and maybe even the Movies. Good luck to you, Roger, but don’t forget your soap opera fans …. we’re behind you all the way!!!!!!! We love YOU!!!!!!!

I absolutely adore RH in any role he plays. He is such a talented actor. I think the soaps only show a tiny bit of what he can do, so I am happy he is getting the opportunity to be on a different kind of show. This actor has never ceased to amaze me with his understanding and interpretations of the characters he portrays. He can play any role you throw at him and make you believe that he is really that guy. Hes witty, funny, scary, sincere, angry (sometimes all at the same time which is something not easily accomplished) and whatever else he needs to be to make us believe that “he is that guy.” Anyway, kudos RH.

Roger is an ubertalent for sure! He deserves to “make it” outside daytime, but he’s also spent 20 years mostly on daytime. One never knows; it’s possible to branch out after years of not really doing so. Good luck to him. No one deserves it more. I hope Roger will do some comedy, not drama. He’s a great comedic actor!

Californication is a very popular show..
It is well above an R rating, near an X .. (pay cable can be that way lol .
It is on showtime and I do not subscribe to Showtime , however- I can watch it online.
Looking forward to seeing RH do a R+ rating show lol ..

Way to go Roger!!! That is great news and he is very deserving! He’s very talented! However there are so many talented people on GH and the other soaps it is amazing they don’t get more gigs in primetime!

Good for him! I will watch him where ever he goes, but my very favorite tv character of all times is…and will always be…his portrayal of Todd Manning. I actually would like to see an evening sitcom starring him called the Mannings with a mix of darkness and humor, but I know that is just my dream. Congrats to Roger Howarth!

I hope that Roger stays on GH as he definitely has been an asset to GH and has helped boost its ratings. I also like him as Todd on OLTL which has been his best role. I don’t have Showtime so can’t watch him there. If he acts on prime time shows and in movies, I will watch. He is one of the best actors on soaps so I hope he stays.

I love it when deserving actors get work–but, gee, when the writers of GH insist that RH be on GH almost every day (when he has 2 other jobs)–and give another great, deserving (if anyone is!) actor Genie Francis 3 appearances in 3 months, something is definitely amiss.

I really enjoyed him as Todd Manning on OLTL and GH. great actor, but as Franco, it is not good, because I still see him as Todd Manning even though he is playing Franco !!! That was a big mistake… same for his daughter, KiKi, Star, dont like overlapping!! Fast forward is the solution. sorry

I’ve loved RH since 1992 & I’ve followed him to ATWT & GH. I’ll watch anything he is in. I think he is the best lead actor in daytime & he should be in prime time & movies. I would love to see him on The Following

RH has what it takes to be on major screens I’m so happy for him congrats, you have the best talent on daytime TV since John Stamos on GH, you are amazing you can play any role especially the narcissistic crazy SOB its about time daytime stars are getting recognized for the big screen we sure need great talent on screen cause some of these great big “STARS” are getting too old and I’m tired of seeing them on screen and I said some of them especially that short guy that jumped on Oprah’s sofa ugh!
Good luck Roger god bless!

GH Nurses’ Ball 2019 Part One: Nina’s Red Carpet Arrival Commentary And Locking Eyes With Jax

On Friday’s first installment of the 2019 GH Nurses’ Ball episodes, it was red carpet time in Port Charles as all of the most famous and infamous residents got dressed to the nines and to impress.

This year, Nina Cassadine (Michelle Stafford) is back for her on-camera hosting duties covering the arrivals on the live-stream, but is joined by Crimson’s New York fashion editor, Sydney Val Jean played by guest star Chandra Wilson of Grey’s Anatomy.  And as you’d expect, these two fashionistas battle it out at times on the carpet for attention.

Throughout the arrivals, and through this episode, this one really belonged to the talents of Michelle Stafford, who through her comedic, romantic, and dramatic timing, made for some of the best moments.  In a surprise, when Nina begins to choke after interviewing Peter (Wes Ramsey), Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Lulu (Emme Rylan),  she excuses herself and ends up outside where Jax (Ingo Rademacher) appears and offers her some champagne.  The two seem to be clearly smitten with each other! Nina accepts his drink, and thanks him, and then goes back inside to her hosting gig, while Jax looks very intrigued by Nina.  Previously, Nina gave a major kiss to Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) when he appeared on the red carpet.

Some of the more shocking …. or interesting red carpet arrivals included: Shiloh (Coby Ryan McLaughlin) showing up with Sam (Kelly Monaco) on his arm, and then getting into words with Sonny (Maurice Benard), who tells the cult leader that family means everything to him and that there is nothing he wouldn’t do for the people he loves.  Shiloh is convinced Kristina (Lexi Ainsworth) will come back to “Dawn of Day”.

When Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) stroll down the red carpet, they get distracted when a dapper Robert Scorpio (Tristan Rogers) shows up, clearly intent on wooing back Anna, to which Anna looks caught by her feelings for both men while Finn is pissed at the game’s Robert is playing.  Later, Finn confronts Robert about his ring.

Everyone was shocked when Kevin Collins (Jon Lindstrom) showed up arm and arm with Ava Jerome (Maura West).  We later learn that this is an attempt to smoke out Ryan, who Ava believes will show his face at the ball.   Lucy (Lynn Herring), the hostess with the mostess, comes up with a plan to get Kevin away from Ava, not knowing they are not romantically together and tries to, perhaps, rekindle their romance up in a Metro Court hotel room.  Meanwhile, Scott (Kin Shriner) wants to get Ava away from Kevin, so he heads up to Lucy’s room with Ava to show her and to catch Kevin and Lucy together, but we don’t know what they saw when the door opened!

Meanwhile in Toronto, Canada, Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Laura (Genie Francis) come to realizing they have been tied up and there is a gas leak in the cabin.  Laura realizes Ryan is trying to kill her in an explosion just as he was supposed to have perished in at the fun house years ago.  It appears Ryan set a trap for Laura and Curtis and fled the scene.  The two extricate themselves before running from the cabin just as it blows up!

Back at the ball other notable couples have arrived from: Chase (Josh Swickard) and Willow (Katelyn MacMullen), to Michael (Chad Duell) and Sasha (Sofia Mattson), to Franco (Roger Howarth) and Liz (Rebecca Herbst), to the GH nurses crew.

The episode ends with an announcer telling all the guests to take their seats as its just about showtime!  And of note:  Is the opening title sequence music changed to a new theme for GH, or is it just for the Nurses’ Ball episodes? That’s one of the buzziest questions today.

So, what did you think of the red carpet arrivals?  Michelle Stafford’s performance?  Jax meeting Nina? What do you think will happen next with Ryan?  Comment below

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Oscar’s Memorial Brings With It Remembrances By Those Who Loved Him

On Monday’s emotional episode of General Hospital, Ned (Wally Kurth) and Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) summoned family, friends, and loved ones to honor Oscar Nero (Garren Stitt), since he just past away due to his battle with brain cancer.  Oscar had his own way he wanted everyone to mourn his death and Ned and Olivia carried out his wishes.

When everyone gathers together, Ned and Olivia announce that Oscar wanted this to be a celebration.  After everyone arrives they sit picnic-style and some get up to speak to remember the amazing young man that Oscar was.  It turns out to be Michael (Chad Duell) who starts the tribute by saying that Oscar was brave to date his intimidating sister.  Next, Cameron (William Lipton) touches on his journey to friendship with Oscar.  Joss (Eden McCoy) finds the courage to go next and remembers how she had a crush on Oscar and how he wasn’t easy to talk to but how she was intrigued because he was mysterious. She then tells show she eventually fell in love with Oscar, and how she will never forget him.  When Drew (Billy Miller) gets up next, he breaks everyone’s heart by stating that he will be eternally grateful to have known his son and will always carry him in his heart.

Next, Ned asks everyone to follow him to the meadow.  Once there, Ned and Olivia hand out seeds to the attendees.  Then, Ned and Olivia reveal a plaque dedicated to Oscar, as everyone throw up seeds that land in the grass for it to grow.

Finally, Kim (Tamara Braun) speaks. She talks about how she raised Oscar on her own, and how after she learned he was sick, she brought him to Port Charles so he could meet his true family.  And with the analogy of the seeds, she says it helped Oscar blossom and how it enriched his young life.  In a heartbreaking moment, she thanks Drew for giving her son courage and being his dad when he needed it, and to Joss for being her son’s first love.  Kim hopes that Joss will come back to the meadow often and think of him.  They share an emotional hug.

Later, after Drew thanks Ned and Olivia for putting this all together for his son, Sam (Kelly Monaco) finds him and tells him he was a great father … and is a great father.  He wants to make sure that Scout knows he loves her.

Back at the meadow, Sonny (Maurice Benard) finds Kim in tears alone at Oscar’s plaque. He tells her he understands the deep pain and void she is going through, but she has to hold on to how Oscar touched so many lives.   Once Sonny leaves, Kim in tears looks up to the sky and says she’ll always love her baby boy.

The episode featured touching performances by Tamara Braun, Billy Miller, Eden McCoy, and William Lipton, who all carried the Oscar dying storyline so beautifully along with Garren Sttit.  Additional kudos go to Lisa LoCicero and Wally Kurth, who as Olivia and Ned, kept Oscar’s memorial moving forward, and were also emotional throughout.

So, what did you think of the episode and the performances? Are you sad Oscar is gone?  Comment below.
