TODAY: AMC’s Jennifer Bassey Makes Her General Hospital Debut!

Courtesy/ABC

So, just who is Jennifer Bassey playing when she enters the canvas on General Hospital today?

The former All My Children star, where she played Marian Colby Chandler from 1983-85, 1995-2009 and 2011, is seen in a sneak peek clip from Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series.

In the clip, Jennifer Bassey’s character wants to meet the man behind “Ask Man Landers”! Enter Nathan West (Ryan Paevey) alongside Amy Driscoll (Risa Dorken).

Now based on this storyline so far, and that of what we know of Marian Colby’s penchant for younger men, remember Tad Martin (Michael E. Knight)? Might this be Marian?

If not, it will be interesting to see just who Bassey is playing in her guest star role.   Watch the clip here.

Then, let us know what you thought of Bassey’s appearance on GH today in the comment section below!

Sounds like another version of Marian from “AMC” hot for hunk Nathan, zzzzzzzz. Was hoping rumor she was Julian and Olivia Jerome’s mother true, then she could have visited her deranged daughter at the loony bin, also getting us another return for Tonja Walker – oh, well…………………..

Boy, I hope so. After watching it, what a let down. A throw-away character in a silly story, I would have even preferred her as Marian. Then they could have at least also brought Liza (Jamie Luner) to town as well. Marcy Walker (ex-Liza) now DEEPLY into religion and not acting at all, so it’s Luner as a good option.

Heck no to Luner ever playing Liza again.

Not a very auspicious beginning; that said, it’s never what it seems, is it? So, is she Helena’s sister or not? 🙂

That said, am I the only one who is hearing “Ass Man Landers”?
It make s Nathan sound like a proctologist.
No wonder he looks so uncomfortable.

By the way, I’m thinking perhaps the photo shoot goes wrong and his face is plastered everywhere!!!

Do your thing, Miss Jennifer. You do it best!!!! My arms are wide open, in welcome. ….love you!!
Make a dent, Madame…leave your indelible mark on the shores of PC.

Her appearance, as introduced by Mr. Fairman, makes one wonder if Jennifer’s character is Nathan’s bio mom, as well as Valentin’s?
I was more inclined to believe that Valentin was Nathan’s father, but, they could be brothers, instead. I know, I know…nuts.

Oh come on, jimh….Even the formidable and talented Ms. Bassey couldn’t wax crazy enough for that role…..and besides, who would want to play the woman responsible for bringing Alexis into this world??? (Plus, she has far too much style sense to have spawned that pathetically unfashionable creature with a taste for tartwear…) Then again, if this new character is a sexually voracious one…well, you could be on to something!!!!!! LOL.

Speaking of daggers, Jimmy, Sam is the one obsessed with knives, right now. If she follows Jason, who is on his way to save the day in PR, her mental malady may return. I guess whatever is wrong with Sam, comes sporadically. Seriously, I am not trying to be facetious. Obviously, something triggers her behavior. I get the sense that she is ‘propelled’ in protecting Jason. While under her ‘spell’, she may turn on Sonny and Carly, as she will see them as a threat to Jason for dragging him to the island, especially if that other mobster is there,… Read more »

I was a long, long time fan of All My Children and it was the only I watched and I was so very disappointed and I still miss it and I’m still mad that they took it off the air! I loved all the characters, some more than others though, and I really liked Jennifer as Marion. I was so surprised and so pleased when I saw her on GH today! I started watching GH about a year later and it is still the only soap I watch. I sure hope that Jennifer will be a regular member of the… Read more »

I know some of the actors want to play different characters but I would love it if Jennifer turned out to be Marian. We need a sense that Pine Valley and Llanview are still around especially since that mess with ABC and Prospect Park is over.

Yes, and while ABC-TV has regained the rights to the characters from ALL MY CHILDREN and OLTL I just don’t feel that they have that much interest in a re-launch or even character crossovers right now – but I certainly could be wrong. I would LOVE to see the characters return in some form or another –

Reply here,,,i wanted her to be Alexis mom who kills Alexis with that same dagger but before that she has an affair with Julian who causes him to have a fatal heart attack while they are in bed together…she could be the soaps most infamous (and my favorite)serial killer by knocking off most of the cast…hey, if Ava can get away with murder she could to!!!-lol

But, to be fair; I do enjoy most of the storylines on GH. I wait with expectation Valentin’s arrival. We all know it’s inevitable. He and Nina will get back together. I, also, anticipate how the writers will ‘handle’ Lulu’s absence. She is so big, she may give birth in the studio parking lot. What is in store for Julian?

….Never know, su. Many actors are cast in short stints and stay for years. Best example, Greg Rikaart (Y&R).
I suppose GH has a full house, and then some….yet;… maybe ” diluvial Cindy” will take care of a few on the island of PR—reducing some of the cast, in one fell swoop.

Jimmy
Guest

Jennifer Bassey’s introduction to GH might be the only good thing to come out of this barely watchable “Ask Man Landers” nonsense. I hope this story with Amy is temporary and will end once Kirsten Storms returns, I can’t stand her character and I don’t understand why the writers are building a story around her. Utilize the vets and the characters we care about, not the peripheral characters with no ties to the canvas, especially one as intolerable as Amy.

Celia
Guest
Celia

I understand, Jimmy. If it weren’t for Ryan and Jennifer, I’d FF every Amy scene. I just do not trust that bubbly-thing going on. As I said previously, she will get Nathan in some trouble. I don’t know what; but, Amy has “no good” on her mind.
I cannot wrap my head around this storyline. What is the point? Absolute nonsense.

Shay

Utter complete tosh, CeeCeeGirl! Makes one wonder if this storyline is intended as camp, comic relief because it sure is playing out that way…except it isn’t one bit funny!

AGREED! Yet, TPTB named the character Amy (as a way to what, endear her to longtime viewers?), have her living with Kristina (another annoying character, IMO), have her working at the hospital, and have given her a backstory with Dillon and Maxie (which is really annoying, what do I care if the girl made the cheerleading squad?). Also, now it appears as though she will be getting a family. STOP THE INSANITY! Focus on the veteran characters. Clean house of the bloated cast!

Celia, doesn’t it make you visualize the story meeting about this asinine tale? Someone positing a story where an annoying sub character gets to hang with the town dreamboat to push a 1950-ish advice column? If they greenlight this one, makes you wonder what they’re turning down.

Celia and Rebecca…Precocious probably wasn’t the word I should have used for Spencer, even though he does have inspired moments. As do many kids. Its just that, for me, he has always been written as the spoiled, entitled, “Prince,” who is sometimes a little over the top. Like his “acting out” since he landed in Port Charles. Many fans don’t mind, but it’s just something that has always bothered me. Also want to add Nicolas/Spencer has done a great job playing the role. I think Laura and Kevin can really help him adjust, but in retrospect maybe not such a… Read more »

I am liking the Amy/Nathan story as a bit of departure from everything else that’s going on at GH. Like more Sonny/Carly, and now Sam’s dillusions. Maybe Ask Man Landers is just a summer bridge story until Maxie comes back and they get a new writer?

If anything I find precocious Spencer just way too over the top. Can you imagine what he could be like as an adult! Go Laura and Kevin in straightening out this entitled kid.

Well, you know I like Amy…and I think her story with Nathan is cute and refreshing. If they don’t have the budget to bring back the vets…and there are times because of said budget they have to rotate the regular players to give them ample time, or maybe the actors who play Molly, TJ, Kristina are busy doing other projects, then I think this is the perfect light summer fare. Whether it turns into a more serious story or peters out remains to be seen. Perhaps Nathan’s photo shoot doesn’t go as planned and his face winds up all over… Read more »

Oh…and Rose…Spencer has always been over the top but that’s his M.O. But he’s always been spoiled on the surface, vulnerable and insecure on the inside. He’s always missed his mom and now, if we believe that Nicolas is truly dead, or at least if he isn’t but Spencer thinks he is…he’s a kid acting out. He’s got “personality” albeit a tad dramatic. He’s a great little actor. Broke my heart when he confessed to Nina he misses his dad every day. When Laura reigns him in, which is what he needs, he’s quite sweet. But, I like the precocious… Read more »

Rebecca…I really like your idea of Amy having her column in the Crimson magazine. For a soap that seems to have had a lot of downer moments recently, this is just a nice, light , probably short-arc story where the characters are acting decent for a change…at least so far. There is a part of me that deep down likes Spencer, but sometimes he can be like chalk on a blackboard for me. And I do like him with Emma. Even Nina used to to do that for me sometimes, but since she took over Crimson I’ve seen flashes that… Read more »

And…Hallmark Channel…another show I really liked is returning with Treat Williams, Diane Ladd, Jesse Metcalfe, Meghan Ory…really heartwarming show…stumbled upon it by accident when it premiered and I loved it.

“Precocious Spencer” is acting out his pain, Rose. So….hopefully it’s not a dig? I am not really a fan of spite. LOL. We could look at Spncer’s behavior as a rebellion against the world; specifically, Valentin for killing his father, albeit, I think that entire episode on the Cassadine island will be explained away, somehow. You know what I mean, Rose; the typical soapy stuff…it wasn’t really Valentin; he was hypnotized; it was someone else wearing a Valentin mask…..whatever TPTB say, we will accept—soap norm. Spencer should not have free rein. But, he is not your typically average kid. My… Read more »

What a waste of a fine actress! Unless they are going to connect her to the canvas in another way, the role could have been filled by any day player.

Bassey’s resemblance to Constance Towers should be embraced. If not, they could have easily have her portray a widowed Marian, who took over the publishing arm of Chandler Enterprises.

Worse, I don’t think she said “dah-ling” once in the entire episode!

Celia
Guest
Celia

Exactly, Steve. This go-between-rep job is too plebeian for an actress of Ms Bassey’s caliber.
As I mentioned, I hope TPTB do tie her into a compelling storyline. They must…..a futile venture if they won’t.
As you said, we haven’t even heard her say, “Dah-ling”, yet.

Just the show’s latest (failed?) attempt at “stunt-casting,” Steve! Been there, done that too many times before…such a shame for this talented actress whose trademark sassy pizzazz could have provided such a marked contrast in character to the coolly-elegant evillainess that is our beloved Helena.

Elegan; Exqisite. Absolutely, Shay. I liken Miss Constance to Miss Jennifer—-especially when making a fashion statement; which is so very lacking in Port Charles….

Should we give her the benefit of the doubt? dmr and Soaphound, I cannot think of a single, reasonable thing compelling this writing team to pen such a nonsensical story….no beginning and no end. It just sprouted like a weed. WHY? As I had said to Shay; will Nathan fall prey? I doubt it. ….unless she drugs him and he hallucinates ;… Read more »

Couldn’t agree more! My first choice for her was as Julian and Olivia Jerome’s Mom, so we could get some good Jerome history of why she ran away from Victor and her children and maybe pay a visit to her deranged daughter (please give us more Tonja Walker) in the loony bin. Even the 2nd rumor as Valentin’s Mom better then this silly throw-away character, as would the return of Marian even be………………….

Michael B. Jordan Pays Tribute To Chadwick Boseman: “Since Nearly The Beginning Of My Career, Starting with All My Children When I was 16 Years Old You Paved The Way For Me”

Following the news of the tragic death of now motion picture icon, Chadwick Boseman late Friday, tributes and sentiments have poured in from celebrities, politicians and fans from all across the world.

Chadwick Boseman passed away late last week at the age of 43 from colon cancer – a battle he kept silent about for the last four years of life.

Photo: JPI

No one could be more intertwined with Boseman’s career than that of his fellow Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan.  For Jordan took over the role of Reggie Porter on All My Children from Boseman after the late actor lasted one week, following standing up to, and addressing concerns, of racial stereotypes in the way that the part was written.  Reggie was introduced to Pine Valley as a gang member in 2003.  As previously reported it was Boseman who helped the soap opera improve the role that Jordan took over with some recommendations.

Now Michael B. Jordan has written a heartfelt remembrance of Chadwick that he shared on his Instagram, and what he has meant to his life, including how he showed him how to be better, to honor purpose and create legacy.

Read below Michael’s post:

“I’ve been trying to find the words, but nothing comes close to how I feel. I’ve been reflecting on every moment, every conversation, every laugh, every disagreement, every hug…everything.

I wish we had more time.

One of the last times we spoke, you said we were forever linked , and now the truth of that means more to me than ever. Since nearly the beginning of my career, starting with All My Children when I was 16 years old you paved the way for me. You showed me how to be better, honor purpose, and create legacy. And whether you’ve known it or not…I’ve been watching, learning and constantly motivated by your greatness.

I wish we had more time.

Everything you’ve given the world … the legends and heroes that you’ve shown us we are … will live on forever. But the thing that hurts the most is that I now understand how much of a legend and hero YOU are. Through it all, you never lost sight of what you loved most. You cared about your family , your friends, your craft, your spirit. You cared about the kids, the community, our culture and humanity. You cared about me. You are my big brother, but I never fully got a chance to tell you, or to truly give you your flowers while you were here.

I wish we had more time.

I’m more aware now than ever that time is short with people we love and admire. I’m gonna miss your honesty, your generosity, your sense of humor, and incredible gifts. I’ll miss the gift of sharing space with you in scenes. I’m dedicating the rest of my days to live the way you did. With grace, courage, and no regrets. “Is this your king!?” Yes . he . is!  Rest In Power Brother.”

What do you think of Michael’s tribute to Chadwick and how they have been interconnected dating back to 2003 and All My Children? Comment below.

Chadwick Boseman, ‘Black Panther’ Star and the Original Reggie On AMC, Dies At 43

In just heartbreaking news in an already dismal 2020, one of the brightest motion picture stars, Chadwick Boseman has died at the age of 43.

Boseman was battling colon cancer for the last four years of his life.  According to his rep, Boseman was diagnosed in 2016 with stage 3 colon cancer and his battle continued as it progressed to stage 4

Chadwick passed away with his wife and family by his side in his home.   In a shocking revelation, all of the movie performances in the last four years he has filmed were done in between chemotherapy and countless surgery.

Boseman is best known for his groundbreaking role as King T’Challa  in Black Panther.   His performance was the first ever Marvel Studio movie headlined by a black actor.  The film was nominated for an Academy Award.   He first appeared as the character in 2016’s Captain America: Civil War.

Most recently, Chadwick appeared in the Spike Lee’s Vietnam War drama Da 5 Bloods, and this year he’s due to appear opposite Viola Davis Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom,” the film adaptation of the August Wilson play.  The actor starred in other films, including playing James Brown in Get On Up and Jackie Robinson in 42,  and the lead role in Marshall.

However, Boseman actually got his start on All My Children when he was the original actor cast in the role of Reggie Porter.  He appeared on the soap for only one week before the role was recast with none other than Michael B. Jordan, and their paths could eventually cross years later on multiple film projects.

In an interview in 2019, Boseman revealed what led him to be fired from All My Children stating:  “When I got it (the part), I was like, ‘This is not part of my manifesto. This is not part of what I want to do. How can I make it work?’ Because with a soap opera, you don’t know the full scope of what’s gonna happen — you don’t know where they’re gonna take the character, because they don’t always know where the character is going. And because of that, there’s possibly room for me to adjust this and change it and make it so it’s stereotypical on the page but not on the screen.”

For Boseman had issues with how Reggie was portrayed and how it was written with racial stereotypes.  In story, Reggie was a young gang member who was adopted by Erica Kane (Susan Lucci) and her husband, Jackson Montgomery (Walt Willey). “I remember going home and thinking, ‘Do I say something to them about this? Do I just do it?’ And I couldn’t just do it. “I had to voice my opinions and put my stamp on it. And the good thing about it was, it changed it a little bit for Michael B. Jordan.”  Apparently the producers told Boseman he was too much trouble but took some of his suggestions on the role moving forward.

Share your thoughts and condolences on the passing of Chadwick Boseman via the comment section below.

Watch below, when Chadwick speaks at the Howard University commencement in which he shared to the graduating students about losing his gig on All My Children(Thanks to Renee for this)
