The General Hospital Promo Featuring The Arrival of Kim Delaney

This week’s episodes of General Hospital have mostly been pre-empted due to major league baseball – but late news on Thursday morning has that a new episode will actually air today following the postponement of the Miami Marlins and Chicago Cubs game.

So look for an all-new GH that was originally set to air tomorrow to air today.  As to Friday’s GH, if the Marlins and Cubs game is rescheduled for that time, then ABC will air the game instead of the daytime drama series.

Now on to next week’s exciting promo heralding the arrival of daytime favorite Kim Delaney, in her new role rumored to be that of Demi Moore’s former role of Jackie Templeton.

In the promo for the week of October 5th through the 9th, Sonny (Maurice Benard) asks Carly (Laura Wright) what the big secret is as the voice-over says , “Everything is about to change.”  Meanwhile, Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) suggests it’s time to start praying.  So, just what is going on here?  Then, the ending of the spot features Delaney leaving us with more exciting questions then answers.

Soap fans loved Kim as All My Children’s Jenny Gardner early in her career (1981-1984) and have continually followed her path into primetime roles on N.Y.P.D. Blues, Army Wives, Chicago Fire, and CSI: Miami, to name but a few.

Watch the GH promo below, then let us know what you think about what will go down when Kim Delaney shows up on-screen? Comment below.

Something to do with Nelle. Like Heather Webber she’ll rise from the ashes….or rather the dirt since she fell over a cliff. And speaking of….was there water or ground at the bottom? Was that made clear?

It’s Nelle. And there’s only a couple of survival scenarios. 1a)she fell into a copiously leafed tree and hung onto a branch or 2b) she fell to a second convenient cliff with minor abrasions and walked off after hiding there. Otherwise she fell headlong into rushing waters, knocked her silly butt unconscious, floated downstream into the path of an oncoming yacht(after drinking gallons of river water) and was rescued “amnesiac”. Or like in the original Aladdin she fell onto a large steaming pile of Haku’s fertilizer and survived. Either way she’s alive. It reminds me of several years back on… Read more »

I loved Kim Delaney as Jennie on AMC. I remember watching the explosion and being so devastated. That was back when “our stories” were watchable and enjoyable. This show is unwatchable.

DMRR…Key word for me is enjoyable. It’s been such a long time since I could feel good or smile watching GH. Except maybe for Olivia and Robert playing James Bond in Monte Carlo.

Rose, I haven’t watched, in I don’t know how long. Every time I turn it on, there is an onslaught of Mr. Laura Wright. He is just horrid.

I’m curious about what her appearances on the show will do for it long-term. I wasn’t an ABC soap fan growing up so I missed the whole Jenny and Greg thing on AMC. I also haven’t seen her in anything else I’ve ever watched and am unfamiliar with her draw. But, people who know her work are excited and I hope that means a good character, good story and good ratings for GH and the fans. Good luck!

This is tied to Nelle and the return of Morgan who saved Nelle’s life and married her!!!-ki

Jimh I thought Nelle too but it’s not. She’s the new Jackie Templeton. LOL. Go figure. It ties in with Holly. Just weird.

I really enjoyed Demi Moore and Janine Turner as sisters Jackie and Laura Templeton….I just don’t understand why now?

Rumor here in Hell is that Jackie – who was a journalist her first time in Port Charles, and likely, still is – has been investigating Cyrus the Virus for some time and will collaborate with Lulu somehow. Not sure when Lulu would have ever met her in the past, but assuming she stays in contact with her father, Luke & Jackie would be old friends. I think she was already gone by the time Laura got away from Stavros Cassadine back in the day though.

And of course, Robert Scorpio knew Jackie really well. In the Biblical sense, even.

Robert made a comment to Lulu on Thursday about a legendary columnist without naming Jackie Templeton. Its her, its Kim Delaney and it is tied in with Holly’s disappearance.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.

General Hospital and ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’s’ Billie Hayes Dead at 96

She was one-of-a-kind, and now actress Billie Hayes has passed away at the age of 96.  Hayes’ family announced her death from natural causes on April 29th at Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles.

Hayes was best-known for her unforgettable role as Witchiepoo on the 1969-70 Saturday morning live-action children’s classic H.R. Pufnstuf from Sid and Marty Kroft.

However, daytime fans will remember that then General Hospital executive producer, Gloria Monty, hired Hayes to play the recurring role of the street-smart international spy, Brighton O’Reilly, back in the 80’s series hey day.

GH’s Tristan Rogers (Robert Scorpio) took to Twitter to mourn the loss of Hayes on Monday sharing; “My dear wonderful Billie Hayes has died. Sadly I only got to work with her on GH but it was a magical relationship. Right away Gloria Monty saw something unique and ran with it. I cannot tell you how her passing saddens me.”

In story, Brighton O’Reilly was shot and killed by Victor Cassadine back in 1981. Billie told Soap Opera Digest back in 2003 about her time as an agent on GH, and her exit from the series: “I asked Gloria why she killed me off, and Gloria said, ‘To tell you the truth, Billie, we really hemmed and hawed at it. But I decided to do it for selfish reasons. I knew if I killed O’Reilly there’d be such an abundance of sympathy and love for Scorpio that his stock would go up. And he’s my new leading man!’ I understand why Gloria knocked me off, but I would have loved to have gone on with it because I feel it could have been developed into a fascinating character.”

Sid and Marty Kroft also took to Twitter and expressed:  “Margaret Hamilton (Wizard of Oz) once told us that Billie Hayes was “one of the best witches ever” We couldn’t agree more. Rest in Peace dear friend.”

Billie’s career spanned decades including Broadway, television, motion pictures and voice-over work. In addition, she founded the Los Angeles-based animal rescue nonprofit organization Pet Hope, a cause she had championed since adopting a puppy abandoned in the basement of Broadway’s St. James Theatre during the run of Lil’ Abner in which she was featured in the role of Mammy Yokum.
