Maurice Benard has been quite a busy actor of late not only taping his ongoing central role of Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, but also filming the motion picture Hold On, and taking time out a few months back to tape an episode of  ABC primetime’s Castle (starring former OLTL alum Nathan Fillion).

Tonight beginning at 10PMEST/PST, look for Benard in the role of Horatio Spate in a episode entitled “Dead Again” which features Jonathan Silverman at the epicenter of the story.

ABC teases:  “When a mild mannered safety inspector for the city (Jonathan Silverman) miraculously survives a poisoning, it might be luck; but when he survives another, it’s a mystery Castle and Beckett will have to solve.”

Seven weeks ago after the filming of his Castle scenes, Benard posted on Instagram: “It was a blast working with these two pros and the well oiled machine that is @abccastle @natefillion @jonnysilverman”

Will you be checking out Maurice on Castle?  Comment below!

Maurice is a wonderful man, 2 years ago I met Maurice at a grocery store. I was doing my shopping and Maurice was in the deli section. He said hello to me, I said hi Sonny Corinthos. He laughed and gave him a hug, and yes Got his autograph. Maurice is a nice guy and terrific actor.

Castle is one of my regular watched shows and since my “fantasy” Sonny will be a guest on the program I simply will be glued to the TV this evening. LOL

Wow – what a stretch for Maurice!! Seemed more like Nathan Fillion and J Silverman were guesting on GH. Could have at least let him be a cross-dresser or anyone other than mobster Sonny Corinthos. Disappointing.

In case you hadn’t heard, Stana Katic/Beckett’s contract hasn’t been renewed for season 9 by ABC, apparently for “budget reasons.” Same for Laney, the medical examiner. There are other stories about the relationship between Stana and Nathan Fillion not being the best. But since I really like Nathan, I’m not going to go on speculation.

But how can you have Castle without Becket?!?

Wanted to say I never watched Castle before. Now may be one of my favorites. Really cool show. Mr Bernard was pretty scary. More intense than Sonny. Mr. Silverman was really great too, funny. Loved it!

Just saw it because I DVR’d it. Live Maurice but It was basically a Sonny-lite performance. Wish Castle would have allowed him to stretch a bit. He’s a great actor who can do more than Mob- ish material

GH’s Wes Ramsey Makes Statement on Criticism, Social Media, and Professionalism

General Hospital’s Wes Ramsey, who portrays polarizing character, Peter August on the ABC daytime drama series, responded to a recent take on his role from cast mate, Tristan Rogers (Scorpio) when a video made its way through social media.

The video was from a Cameo appearance, where Rogers offered an assessment of the Peter August storyline and expressed that while he knows Ramsey is a strong actor, he felt he was “wrong for the character” being that Peter was the son of the evil Faison played by Anders Hove.

Rogers also came to the defense of Ramsey and shared: “Don’t be too hard on Wes Ramsey. He’s got himself into a horrible storyline, and the storyline is the fault of the show. What they’ve literally done is they’ve painted themselves into a corner, and they don’t know how to get out of it.”

Currently, Peter’s story is front and center on GH with his wedding to Maxie (Kirsten Storms), and the fallout from all of the character’s dirty deeds.

Now Ramsey took to his Instagram account to address what transpired and his thoughts on the perils of social media, professionalism and acting, expressing: “Actors are storytellers, shapeshifters, chameleons. We’re also in the business of cultivating trust bc that’s how the best work is brought to life. We have to trust our imaginations, our instincts. We have to trust our fellow actors, because without them, there’s no scene to play. In the collaborative efforts of bringing any show to life, we also have to trust our directors each day to steer the arch of our story (like a conductor with a symphony) & trust our writers who are tasked with composing the symphonies we play out. I came up in a world of classical theater, where trusting the play, text, story is essential to the tightrope balancing act of making magic.  You will never hear me critique (on any public platform) the people responsible for the creative opportunities I enjoy each day. Without the trust of my writers, directors, producers & fellow actors, it would be impossible to live out my dreams. My job (& my only job) is to bring fearlessness, playfulness & passionate conviction to what has been created for me. My aim is to stretch myself (beyond the limits of where I think my boundaries may lye) each time I’m entrusted with material that allows those boundaries to be tested.

 

Every actor must believe they are the right person for their part or they will never achieve their potential, let alone surpass it. I was raised a gentleman & have two wonderful parents to thank for that, however, my polite personality (while rendering me easy to get along with on set) should have little bearing on my caliber of performance nor my castability as a professional.  I am leery of the pitfalls of social media & believe there are advantages to maintaining some mystery (even as a public figure) but I will always defend & protect what I hold dear (my job & my career) when they are publicly challenged, especially by those closest to me, whom I love & respect. Please know I bear no ill will. As a society, we are all still learning the full ramifications of living in an internet dominated culture. To all my many fans out there who offer encouragement & support, I hear you & am grateful for you. I’m having a blast… 🙂. Onward we go.”
