Sonny Corinthos Vs. Victor Newman! Would You Like To See The Ultimate Soap Smackdown? GH's Maurice Benard Would!

Over the last few times we have spoken formally with General Hospital’s superstar Maurice Benard, he has mentioned that he would love the chance to for his soap alter-ego Sonny Corinthos to go toe-to-toe with Genoa City’s Victor Newman in a soap crossover, somehow, someway!

Last night on Benard’s Twitter account, the  uber-popular Daytime Emmy winner mentioned it again when tweeting, “Idk what was said but I respect @ebraeden & would love to see a faceoff between Sonny & Victor Newman. Theyd have to put me on 2 phone books.”   Of course, Maurice was referring to his height difference to faceoff with Ole’ Vic as played by Daytime Emmy winner himself, Braeden.

So, would you like to see a Sonny Corinthos and Victor Newman showdown? A way for the two to crossover from Genoa City to Port Charles and back again? Or, perhaps a reviving of the “What-If” series with network soap crossovers online? And, if Sonny and Victor were to face-off in the tough guy category, who do you think would have the upper hand? Let us know!

That is asking an awful lot for TWO networks that have one foot out the door already for continuing soaps on their networks.

The only way Maurice is going to bring a mobster or bad guy personality to Victor Newman’s front door is to leave GH and have Jill give him a job … and we know she would in a heartbeat.

contract

I think both actors could do a spoof online without referring to each other’s character by name. From my perspective, Sonny would win in the short term because he has henchmen in the shadows at all times. Also, Victor has a heart condition. Achilles Heel?

Why stop there,throw in Stefano from Days,and Eric from B&B and we can have a 4 way dance.

SUSAN

stefano yes with victor and sonny i can not see eric going toe to toe with either
but i do like him on b&b

one problem with b&b they have so much bed hopping everyday and its get old
after a while, but that is only my opinion

prefer gh, y&r and days to b&b but know bold and beautiful has large fan following and hope we can keep the last 4 soaps on air for a while

It seems like a fun idea at first but to be honest, without the promise of any redemption or radical change of course, the exercise would be futile. Sometimes, these anti-heroes do wear on me with their repetitive plot lines and the way they never seem to learn to be changed by the experiences.

In the soap reality universe Sonny and Victor would have no reason to battle each other, more than likely, Victor would hire Sonny to do a number on Jack or they would be business partners.

He needs to stay with GH and leave Y&R alone. There is no place for him Y&R and if JFP thinks there is, she is as ridiculous as MB wanting to come over. I wish Sonny would go away for ever. Tired of JFP making every show she is on all about her buddies. Look forward to CBS and Sony replacing her arrogant self.

That would be a hell of a lot of mumbling in one place! Closed captioning/subtitles would be an absolute necessity.

I know, I’ve read that about Sonny, and I don’t see that, but Victor on the other hand, YES!

Andy too funny for words !

Oh No, no no no. Two worse characters I can’t imagine, and in the same scenes together would be altogether too much. The whole place would smell like burning ham.

And between MB’s forgetting his lines, and EB mumbling his as he reads them off his ever-present cell phone, it would be more like a Saturday Night Live skit than anything else.

Fever dreams, MB. Take two acting lessons and call us in the morning.

SUSAN
SUSAN

mb and eb both can act circles around half the other actors on either show

that is why cbs and abc keep both the on air

and let us not forget they both have won emmys for the role they play
just my opinion

i love both mb and eb but mb is my fav

aria

two narcissitic characters going at it? it would be never ending ego maniacs going at it and do we have that much air time to satisfied them? yikes!

Victor would win, hands down. He is much wiser and threatening than sonny.

Would LOVE to see these two egos go toe-to-toe (or phonebook to toe). Maybe they could do a “Funny or Die” skit. I think the fans would love it. Show a “human” side to theses larger than life characters. It would also bring some attention to their shows that might interest some lapsed fans.

Victor VS Sonny, Victor would win. Victor has more staying power. And I wouldn’t want Mo on Y&R, and I don’t even want him on GH. I’ve never been a fan of the actor nor his character. Sonny is a needy guy, a very needy guy. Stay on GH. And let Victor do his own work, without being interrupted from a no-good mobster.

This reeks of press/publicity for the two old horses…. dare i say this… i’m so over, Victor, Lording over his presence…. OK… i’m stubborn about no more Abbotts….,

someone posted above…. DAYS – Stefano / and ERic – B&B , now there’s two fine men.

General Hospital

GH Preview – Week of June 18, 2018

This week on General Hospital, as Carly (Laura Wright) is being drugged up with anti-psychotic meds at Ferncliff, it’s Jason (Steve Burton) to the rescue.  Carly’s bff finds a way to infiltrate the state mental institution. Meanwhile, Carly had been talking to Kevin (Jon Lindstrom), who says he will help her through her ordeal emotionally.  But is Carly really seeing Kevin, or is it just a figment of her imagination?

Elsewhere, Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) seeks out her ex Julian (William deVry) as she tries to come to terms with the root cause of her issues with the men she chooses to be in her life.  Julian, who has gotten closer to Kim (Tamara Braun), now has a chance to try to help Alexis and make up for the ways in which he hurt her.  Could this be the beginning of the patching up of Julexis, or the final straw?

Sonny (Maurice Benard) has just learned that Mike (Max Gail) moved the body buried at Croton. Where did Mike take it?  How will this have future implications?

Here are more teasers for the action coming up on  GH:

MONDAY JUNE 18

Obrecht covers her tracks.

TUESDAY JUNE 19

Nelle reflects on her past.

WEDNESDAY JUNE 20

Michael confronts Chase.

THURSDAY JUNE 21

John Stamos Visits His Old Stomping Grounds At General Hospital

Social media was abuzz yesterday when photos surfaced on Twitter of none other than John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish), who got his early career start on General Hospital, apparently making a visit to the set of the iconic soap opera.

Stamos posted photos of himself, along with Steve Burton, Maurice Benard, Josh Swickard and Kin Shriner.  He stated: “The studs of ! Visit to my old stomping grounds – thanks for the hospitality boys.

This fueled rumors that perhaps, just perhaps, Stamos was making a guest star visit to the ABC daytime drama series, yet there is also the fact that John has been developing a series about fame and excess of daytime soaps in the 1980s based off his time as a young teen star on GH.

So, what do you think John visited GH for? What did you think of the pics by Jim Warren that appeared on social media?  Is Blackie coming back, or is John shooting or doing research for his series in development? Comment below.
