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 Parry Shen Delivers the ‘Power Performance of the Week’

How many of us have lost, or had to say goodbye to our best friend? Somehow fate or illness intervenes and cuts short someone you share so many memories with.

On last Thursday’s episode of General Hospital, Dr. Britt Westbourne’s (Kelly Thiebaud) family and friends gathered for her memorial at the GH chapel.  However, viewers knew of the special connection between Britt and her bestie, Brad Cooper (Parry Shen).

Devastated at losing Britt, upset that she never told him she about her diagnosis with Huntington’s Disease, and mourning her death, Brad comes to her former office, where Britt was the Co-Chief of Staff at the hospital. After exchanging heartfelt moments with Britt’s mother, the grieving Liesl (Kathleen Gati), and Scott Baldwin (Kin Shriner), Brad (with a paper bag in hand) spends some time alone in Britt’s former office, which has now been cleaned out.

Next, Brad takes out a carton of ice cream (for those who know the back-story, Britt and Brad would sit together each with ice cream and watch the red carpet at the Nurses’ Ball on TV and hoot and howl at the residents of Port Charles), and thus begins a very emotional and five-hankie moment, where Brad recalls all the key moments in their friendship.

Parry Shen was so touching in this scene, that if you have been a fans of Britt and Brad’s friendship, we are sure you shed some tears.

Later, during the memorial, Brad is pained listening to the others eulogize Britt, and when it is his turn to speak, he does his best to get through it and pay homage to his best friend.

We will miss the Brad and Britt friendship as will many GH viewers for it was one-of-a-kind on the soaps – two originally, not so nice people, doing bad things and finding common ground with each other, and eventually turning their lives around and being there to support each other.

For all of these scenes mentioned above, Michael Fairman TV names Parry Shen’s work, the Power Performance of the Week.  You can check out a clip featuring Shen below.

Now, let us know, what did you think of Parry’s Performance during Britt’s memorial episode? Comment below.

Marcus Coloma On His GH Exit: “I Don’t Know Why That Decision Was Made, But I Don’t Feel Any ill Will and I Didn’t Feel I Got Fired”

This week, GH fans saw Adam Huss returning to the ABC soap opera as Nikolas Cassadine to finish out the rest of the scenes originally intended to be played by Marcus Coloma who ended his three-year run on the show a tad early.

As has been previously reported, Coloma came down with Covid-19 as his final tape days neared, and a decision was made for him to not return to finish off his last run of episodes.

With all the rumors and stances taken by everyone involved, Coloma was the special guest on this week’s episode of the That’s Awesome Podcast hosted by Steve Burton and Bradford Anderson and discussed his departure from the long-running daytime drama series.

Marcus expressed that when he took the role on GH, he was excited to be in that kind of environment (working on a soap opera), and only signed on for three years.  However, as time went by it became more difficult to reconcile leaving when his contract was up, sharing: “You fall in love with the crew and everybody along with it. So, two and a half years in, this decision that was so clear in the beginning is getting complicated.”

The actor added that while, “I knew the end was coming, it wasn’t like GH was saying, ‘Hey, Marcus, we want you to stay.’  There was no negotiation … and all I can say to that is I don’t know why that decision was made, but I don’t feel any ill will and I didn’t feel like I got fired. It just felt like … there was maybe an understanding that I was going to be there for three years. The big surprise is how much it hurt. Even though I knew I was going to leave.”

In the end, Coloma reflected that this may have concluded as it should, adding, “I really do have some big goals and those goals would have never been realized if I would have stayed. That’s not to take anything away from GH because I admire everything about it.”

Watch the episode of That’s Awesome featuring Coloma below.

Adam Huss Back to GH as Nikolas Cassadine

With Marcus Coloma’s last appearance as Nikolas Cassadine on last week’s January 26th episode of General Hospital, the soap opera brought back Adam Huss to finish out the dark prince’s storyline.

According to Soaps.com. Huss aired today on the January 31st episode of the ABC daytime drama series and will finish out the scenes that were written to be portrayed by Coloma.

Adam previously subbed for Coloma back in September 2021 and again in November 2022.

After it was announced that Coloma was leaving GH, the network and the series agreed that it would be best that Marcus did come in to tape his last episodes since he was recovering from Covid-19 at the time.  Thus, we are seeing those episodes featuring Huss now airing in early February.

So, glad to see Adam back to wrap Nikolas’ current storyline? Share your thoughts in the comment section below.
