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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

Nancy Lee Grahn Kicks-Off Her 25th Year as General Hospital’s Alexis; Thanks Fans & Shares: “What a Ride”

She’s one of the best of the best!  And on Saturday, Nancy Lee Grahn acknowledged the start of her 25th year as Alexis Davis on ABC’s General Hospital. 

Nancy, who daytime fans first loved on One Life to Live and then Santa Barbara, came to Port Charles and quickly became one of its leading mainstays.

On Twitter, marking the occasion, Nancy thanked her fans with this: “Wow! I start my 25th year on  @generalhospital  today. What a ride. It’s been one of my greatest pleasures to be connected to & supported by such a beautiful, loving, loyal #gh audience. We are and have always been in this together. I hope you can feel my most sincere virtual hug.”

Currently in story, Alexis just lost the new love of her life Neil and on Friday’s episode of GH, Alexis was blamed for his death by Neil’s brother when she tried to attend his memorial service.  Later, she landed at the Floating Rib with Valentin – but when he got into it with Ned and stepped outside, Alexis ordered a drink.  Not a good sign for this recovering alcoholic, and all this came on the heels of Alexis learning she has osteoporosis.

Through the years, story after story, beat after beat, we are lucky to have Nancy on our screens with her consistently riveting and honest performances.

What has been your favorite Alexis storyline through the years?  And … make sure to wish Nancy a ‘happy 25th’ via the comment section below.

The Cast of General Hospital: The Alzheimer’s Storyline – Delivers The ‘Power Performance of the Week’

General Hospital’s depiction of the battle of Alzheimer’s disease and how it affects the dying, and the loved ones they leave behind, came to its heartbreaking conclusion this past week on the ABC daytime drama series.

Led by storyline standouts: Maurice Benard (Sonny) and Max Gail (Mike), who once again acted their hearts out in their final scenes together, the entire ensemble of actors who were part of this storyline each had their moments and each delivered which made Mike’s passing all the more poignant.

In a first since we started giving out our weekly kudos several years ago, Michael Fairman TV is giving our Power Performance of the Week to the cast of GH who participated in last week’s scenes for their riveting work.

From Laura Wright’s beautiful goodbye scene as Carly with Mike, where she dreams of him telling her she is a ‘daughter to him”, to Steve Burton’s all-knowing Jason, who tells Mike he will take care of Sonny and not to worry, to Michael (Chad Duell) and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) picturing how key moments of their life would look with Mike being witness to it, and the advice he would give his grandchildren, to Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) finding out that Mike is dying while being so far away from his family – each of these beats brought even more heart-tugging moments to the ending of Mike’s journey.

Even the actors who played a part in Mike’s care were touching as Vernee Watson’s Stella prepares Sonny on how to help Mike pass before saying her final goodbye to her friend.  Then there was Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel), who helped Carly and Sonny through Mike’s last moments at Turning Woods, who was also trying to keep it together through his sadness. Brando (Johnny Wactor) showed up at Turning Woods too, trying to make peace with the death he saw in the war in Afghanistan and now losing Mike.

Of course, there was the surprise moment where Mike is met by his late daughter Courtney and escorted to heaven that both Alicia Leigh Willis and Max Gail played so beautifully without saying hardly a word.

But in the end, it was Maurice Benard who showed us the devastation and acceptance of a son having to let his father go, while trying to make peace with their troubled past that was acting at its best, and perhaps some of the finest in his storied daytime career  – and there was Max Gail – the centerpiece of the storyline – who’s emotional heart was seen in all the scenes last week with the actors as the characters visualized moments with Mike.  Throughout the entire story, Gail played the tragedy of a human being trapped within this horrific disease with brilliance.  He will be missed.

So, what do you think of our choice of the cast of General Hospital for this week’s Power Performance of the Week?  Share your comments below.
