TONIGHT: GH and Marine Vet, Chris Van Etten Featured In All-New Episode Of ’68 Whiskey’

In what has been called the “Modern day M*A*S*H”, Paramount Network’s latest one-hour scripted series, 68 Whiskey, will feature a very familiar face to General Hospital’s viewers, when Marine vet, Chris Van Etten (Chet Driscoll) is part of the cast of the latest episode airing Wednesday night, February 5th at 10PMEST/9PMCST.

68 Whiskey is from noted Hollywood EP’s Brian Glazer and Ron Howard.  The show follows a multicultural band of Army medics stationed in Afghanistan on a base nicknamed “The Orphanage,” blending intense drama with  irreverent humor. Together, the medics navigate a dangerous and sometimes absurd world, relying on camaraderie, various vices, and occasionally, a profound sense of purpose, to carry them through.

As many know by now, Van Etten is a double-amputee.  Chris lost both his legs after he stepped on an IED (improvised explosive device), while serving in Afghanistan in 2012.

In his role on 68 Whiskey, Chris re-enacts the moment he lost his legs as his character “Louisville”, and then begs medics to give a letter he’s written to his wife.

For those who wonder just what does the title of the series, 68 Whiskey mean:  68W is the Military Occupational Specialty (MOS) code for the United States Army’s Combat Medic.

So, will you be checking out Chris’ performance tonight?  Hope he returns for more episodes as GH’s Chet? Share your thoughts below.

In addition, check out our two-part interview with Chris from a few years back, conducted for the Michael Fairman Channel, where Chris tells his real-life war story, how he has lived his life since losing his legs, and being part of the cast of General Hospital.

Very happy for the actor. I always thought he would have been good with Lucas as an alternative to Brad.

WATCH: Nancy Lee Grahn, Jane Elliot & Kim Zimmer in ‘Covid Support Group’ Episode Two

Over the weekend, General Hospital’s Nancy Lee Grahn (Alexis) along with her creative partner. comedian, Kaore Bonell released episode two of the hilarious send-up ‘Covid Support Group” which features Grahn, and two other powerhouses known for their performances on daytime drama: Jane Elliot (Tracy, General Hospital) and Kim Zimmer (Ex-Reva, Guiding Light).

In episode two, Bonell and the three women are joined by a very special guest; when none other than former Los Angeles District Attorney, who tried the OJ Simpson Murder Trial, Marcia Clark, shows up!  We won’t tell you what happens, you’ll have to check it out to see.

Watching Zimmer as a boozy version of herself, Grahn with her brilliant comedic timing, and Elliot who is also perfection in this, is just too fun that every soap fan will get a kick-of, and even if you don’t watch daytime, think about how everyone is going stir-crazy during the coronavirus pandemic, and amp it up a bit and you have the genesis of this oh-so-timely series.

Best line of episode 2 was from Grahn:  During confessions during Covid, she says to the support group, “I bitch-slapped a guy who was hoarding toilet paper at CVS, does that count? Or does Erika Slezak get my Emmy for that, too?”

Watch Covid Support Group 2 below, and then let us know what you thought of it via the comment section below!

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.
