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.

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

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

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.

Natasha Henstridge To Play Opposite GH’s Departing Vinessa Antoine in DIGGSTOWN

More casting news from the upcoming Canadian legal drama series, Diggstown which will star General Hospital’s Vinessa Antoine (Jordan) in the central role of Marcie Diggs.

As fans know, Antoine will be exiting GH in the role of Jordan as she begins filming the CBC series.

However, Antoine is getting a co-star on her new show, in none other than Natasha Henstridge.  The actress has previously appeared in CW’s Beauty and the Beast and Secret Circle.

 

According to Deadline, in Diggstown, Natasha will play Colleen MacDonald, a single, no-nonsense, openly gay director of legal aid now headquartered in Halifax after being blacklisted by the legal community in Toronto. She hopes to one day work her way back home.

As for the premise of the new series, Diggstown is set in the gritty arena of legal aid.  It centers on Marcie Diggs (Antoine), a star lawyer who reconsiders her priorities after her beloved aunt commits suicide following a malicious prosecution. Landing at a legal aid office in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Marcie is driven by one thing – to never again allow innocent lives to be destroyed by the justice system.  The team of lawyers that Marcie works with are a curious band of do-gooders, cynics and scrappers – messy souls struggling to keep personal disappointment and demons out of their practice as they work directly in the community to find justice for their diverse clients, exploring issues of racism, poverty and gender bias.”

Antoine is the first black actress to be cast as a dramatic series lead on iconic Canadian Broadcasting Company, CBC.

So, what do you think of the premise of Diggstown?  Sounds intriguing to us! Comment below.

GH’s Kathleen Gati and Michelle Stafford Deliver The Power Performance of The Week!

A grieving mother and sister found themselves stuck in a revenge plot gone haywire, that provided the backdrop in which two accomplished actresses; Kathleen Gati (Liesl) and Michelle Stafford (Nina) were able to shine on episodes of General Hospital.

Although Peter’s kidnapping went on far too long, and fans on social media have their own viewpoints as to what they think of Mr. August aka Henrik Faison (Wes Ramsey), the final week of taking Peter hostage to torment him as payback for his part in Nathan’s death; gave Gati and Stafford scenes from the comedic, to the emotional, to the cray-cray, and more..

On Thursday’s episode, Nina is trying to talk down Liesl from torching the place, but Liesl is becoming more unhinged and more grief-stricken.  She says to Nina, “I lost my son.  I gave Nathan up to protect him.  I spent my life not even daring to gaze in his direction for fear that Cesar would take him.  I never wanted my son to be like him, and now my beautiful boy is buried in the ground, while the other son is still breathing!  So, I must finish this my way, Nina  …  with or without you!”

Pleading, an emotional Nina responds: “Aunt Liesl, you are not the only one who lost time with Nathan.  I did, too.  I missed him growing up.  I missed his childhood, and seeing the incredible man he turned into.  I feel his absence and I feel the loss every second of every day.  I hate Faison, and I will for the rest of my life, and I hate Anna (Finola Hughes) just like you did, but that does not justify what I have done… being an accomplice in this crazy revenge.  None of that is going to bring my brother back.”   Nina goes on to say:  “I knew J would not want his mother grieving alone. This isn’t grief anymore … this is madness.”

Obrecht with rage and sadness in her eyes says, “The brightest souls like my Nathan are extinguished.”  And from there, as viewers know by now, Liesl sets the fire, which sets the stage for Nina’s rescue, and the Friday cliffhanger of Finn (Michael Easton) having to decide whether to go in the burning building and get Peter out, or not.

Later on the pier, a stoic, but grief-stricken Liesl is arrested.  She spitefully tells Curtis (Donnell Turner) and Jordan (Vinessa Antoine), “Tell Anna something for me: ‘Now we are even!”‘

Earlier in the week, we saw how Kathleen Gati navigated the comedic yet dramatic moments as she had to knock Franco (Roger Howarth) out, while she was trying to get back to Spoon Island, as he realized Obrecht was the guilty party who took Peter.

Gati has made Obrecht, this one-of-a-kind character, come to life, no matter what the circumstances the writers put her in.  And as for Michelle Stafford, when Nina spoke of her brother and the loss she continues to feel, it was one of the most on-the-money moments for anyone who has lost a sibling that they looked to.

So, even through some of the absurdity of the circumstances, and as they were portraying two women trying to figure their way out of the mess they created,  Gati and Stafford never faltered as they committed to the material, and delivered this week’s Power Performance of the Week.
