After a tweet when out from General Hospital’s William deVry (Julian), which indicated that Shirley Jones was on her way to the ABC soap opera to begin to tape a guest appearance tomorrow, during an exchange with none other than William Shatner, a story picked up steam!

Next, Soap Opera Digest confirmed with a GH representative that it is true! Jones, best known for her role in The Partridge Family, is heading to the soap in an undislcosed role!

deVry’s tweet which brought the Jones appearance to light stated, @WilliamShatner “We have Shirley Jones coming onto General Hospital tomorrow. We r still hoping ur agent will let u join us for a few eps.”   It seems that tweet has also been deleted from Twitter at this time.

This is not Shirley Jones first foray into soaps!  Days of our Lives fans remember her as Colleen Brady! So the question is, who do you think Shirley will play when she comes to GH?   Do you think she may be a Cassadine, since Thaao Penghlis reported for work this week as Victor?  Or, do you think she might hospital patient?  Or, could she be connected to the Silas mystery?  What are your thoughts?  Let us know!

I’d love to see Jones as Julian’s mother! Maybe Mrs. Jerome is the real brains behind this and is not happy with how her son is handling things?

Would love that story.. I hope you are right!

With William devry tweetin your guess could be right…i thought since Silas mentioned wealthy inlaws she’d be his coma wife’s mother in town talking to new cop Nathan West who is investigating Silas!

I would live this story too! Right now, I am really enjoying the Jerome family… Imagine Jones going head to head with Maura West!

I would NOT want to go up against Shirley Jones–just ask Florence Henderson!

Maybe as Sila’s wealthy mother-in-law?

Silas’s mother-in-law…

jimh(leave it to beaver)
jimh(leave it to beaver)

I think she’ll be Sila’s wealthy mother-in-law and they wanted William Shatner to play her husband…the parents of Nina, Silas’s wife who is in a coma?

yah ,, I think she will be connected to Ava and Silas..
she will be from their back story..

That’s what I was thinking. The in-laws Silias mentioned seemed like a role that worth bringing Shatner and Jones on the show as guest stars– nothing long term but a important piece of the puzzle involving this mystery around Silias. Also, have you notice how many people Ava has been threatening and been threaten by lately– do you see an attempt on her life in the near future? I hope they don’t kill her off– maybe she will go into a coma like Silia’s wife– just a thought–

jimh(leave it to beaver)

That with Ava does sound interesting…if she ends up in a coma maybe Dee Ryan, her mother could pay a visit for a short term…i say short because i wouldnt want her in a coma for long…i like Ava!!!

Has there been a multi-colored bus (circa 1970….) seen cruising around Port Chuck???? Maybe Ma Partridge and that other fabulous mother (aka “Dr. O.”) will do a duet!!!! “I Think I Love You?” “C’mon Get Happy?”….Love Shirley Jones…welcome addition! (And if Ron C. needs any saucy suggestions for love scenes she would be an excellent resource if her recent autobiography is any indication…LOL!) P.S. What, no Reuben Kincaid????? He should play her hubby…..

We have lost SoapNet and GH & Days come on at the same time in my town which makes things difficult. I have to decide what to record in what room so I can keep up with these shows. On work days I try to watch a soap at lunch online but now you cannot watch GH online without waiting EIGHT days! What sense does this make? I watch every soap on the air every single day & work 3 days a week. I have to keep a little notebook to keep up with all this. SoapNet made things SO EASY. I am very irritable over this. I had saved Tuesday’s GH to watch at lunch today but NO, I could not. I was caught up on all the others so had nothing to watch. In the meantime today I was recording Days in my bedroom at home (should have been recording GH but who knew) to watch tonight but should just save it to watch it tomorrow online at work-now I am behind on GH & the only room it is recorded is my den . . . blah, blah, problems, problems, right? But soaps are a huge deal to me & I am sick of them being messed around with. It gets harder & harder for the soap watcher to keep up & I resent it.

Sometimes you can watch GH episodes the next day if you have ON Demand or sometimes on utube…ive missed an episodeof GH and thats what i do now that i no longer have soapnet…hopes this helps! If you can do it the way i suggested its better than nothing…

You can watch GH and Days on youtube. There are several there to choose from. Just do a search for it

@gloria

I’d learn to watch on youtube

there are no commercials… and it’s faster to get through…and keep up

good luck

I am not trying to be a wise acre, but I would skip GH the days Carly and Franco are featured.

I don’t follow General Hospital , but I do watch it on special occasions. I saw Shirley Jones on Days of Our Lives and she was fantastic. So I would like to watch her on General Hospital. As soon as you get the airdates, let us know.

I have always loved Shirley Jones in any and every role…. that said, what is this about. FV and RC need to concentrate on upping the continuity and coherence of the show, not thinking up schemes to bait viewers for a day or two at a time.

Seriously? TAKE THE MONEY AND PAY FOR A STORY CONSULTANT!

Shay

Well, Ron has to think of some way to fill up the space and time until the “Sappy Great Birthing Pageant” (aka, the next “Nurses’ Ball”) commences….since it would seem that the only character he wants to make long-term plans for is the insufferable unwed mother!

I think I saw a sad, neglected Sparkle Pony in one of those SPCA commercials with Sarah Mclachan singing one of her really depressing songs (is there any other kind?). Yes, I donated.

Loved her in Elmer Gantry. She could be Noah Drake’s mother–Patrick’s grandmother. After all, she’s well adept at playing the mother of a pop star sex symbol.

yeah people know partidge family but she is also an oscar winner (for elmer gantry), and had the female lead in the films of both Carousel and The Music Man (yep, she was the one singing Till there was you as Marian the Librarian)–she would grace any stage or show she comes to

Elizabeth

She also played the leading lady in Oklahoma. I still think TPTB should lay off the gimmicks and concentrate on their writing and editing skills for a much better payoff.

Harry

I have to agree with you Elizabeth, all these celebrities serve as bells and whistles to distract us from the fact that the writing is nonsensical, disjointed and choppy. The Carly and Franco fiasco is turning away fans in droves.

SZima

Amen!…to the concentrating on writing & editing!

So right you are Harry! Not just the Franco/Carly debacle, but those of Lucy/Scotty/Kevin, Rafe/Molly/TJ and particularly the worst of all, Felix and Sappy! There are too many days this soap doesn’t even seem like GH…it’s as if aliens decided to beam some bizarre amateur hour from a parallel universe in its timeslot! That being said, at least the stunt casting gives us something to look forward to: true professionals who know their way around a set! Can’t wait until Thaao Penghlis returns! Now just get back Scorpio, Frisco, Noah and yes, Blackie!

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
