I Never heard of her.. So- eehh
I never heard of this guy, Brody Lovett, either.
But- I got an email telling he’s coming to GH for a long stay.. he’s from OLTL..
I hope he won’t be Dante or Nichols..
He best be a new whoever.

Brody Lovette, the new Lucky?

Laura DOES need her son Lucky–and her son Nickolas.

Hello, T,
Great guess, I’d say—-Lucky….Ava’s new love interest?

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

Oh, please, no. . . . I love Ava, but . . . no, let’s keep Lucky out of her orbit, please. How about Lucky comes back and rescues Liz from the clutches of Franco?

Timmm
Timmm

I agree, a Lucky, Liz, Franco triangle.

JJ would ONLY come back if Tony were still there so yeah, lets recast Lucky and move forward.

Celia

LOL, Michael—I just threw Lucky in there for kicks—-I know who he is but, I wasn’t watching when he was a permanent fixture on GH.
I agree with you—I like Franco ( sort of) and I love Miss Lizzie, but separately. This must be the most boring couple!! Seriously!!
I don’t know Lucky’s personality. However, I do know Ava’s….. she bresthes sexy “fayah” from every pore—-she’s all woman!! Not too many men have the power to tame the Sinuous Siren!! I would think Kevin, with his gentlemanly comportment, hides a beast ( in a loving but arduous way—not a’ la Ryan, of course)—-Kevin–HMMMM—-therein lies the perfect mate for Ava. Kevin represents the quiet, sedate, intelligent, intuitive species of man with an undercurrent that is not readily seen. Yum!! I love Jon!! LOL.
You know what other couple will be a bust??!! Valentin and the new Nina. She is the ‘palest’ copy of the original. ” Nothing Compares” to Michelle Stafford’s liveliness; her finesse, her savoir-faire, her lanky, harmonious perfect body, her smile, her charisma, her come-hither look ——her everything!!
Bye❤️.

Michael (not Fairman)

That would be fine with me. JJ is clearly not coming back, and it’s time to accept that and recast. Mark Lawson would be a fine choice.

If Mark Lawson (the actor who played Brody) is coming to GH, that would be fantastic news. He’s charming, funny and likable and also can play serious stuff. I would tune in again to see him!

Look up Veronica on IMDB. A storied career. Maybe you should get out more.

Hi su000.

Veronica starred in a movie which went into wide release the very same day GH first aired, April 1st, 1963…The Birds, in which she played Cathy. In the movie Cathy turned 11, but in real life the actress turned 13 and cast and crew threw her a party on set.

I’ve always liked her. She was good in Alien, but many of her scenes were cut, most likely so as not to upstage the star, the wife/or would be wife of that movie’s director.

Possibly my favorite movie starring her was the first remake of Invasion of the Body Snatchers.

It’s been a while since I’ve visited this site, but I hadn’t been snatched. lol

su000
su000

Hi !! 🙂
those movies were before my time on earth, but-
I saw a ‘Body Snatchers’ movie, a new version I assume, and it was very good..and it had a totally new cast I’d imagine.
4ever DAYS, visit more often 🙂

SuOO, the classic movies are before EVERYBODY’s time! I know you like to remind everyone how young you think you are but this line is getting, ahem, rather OLD! George Washington was before my time too but I do know he was our first president of the United States. You are missing out by electing not to watch Hitchcock masterpieces like The Birds, Vertigo and Rear Window. Check out TCM–they are always playing brilliant classic movies.

rebecca1

LOL! Perfect response, Harry (no offense, Su). But…ditto!

Celia

Hi, 4ever,
Thanks for that info-❤️—–THE BIRDS!! Of course!! No wonder she looks so familiar. I simply couldn’t place her—I have seen every Hitchcock movie.

4ever DAYS

Hello, Celia!

I’m happy I came back to this thread to see your response. I don’t get notices like I should. I hope you’re doing well, cc. I miss the old version of Michael’s site. This one is harder (and slower) for me to navigate, but I’ll check in every once in a while.

BTW, I have almost every Hitchcock movie on DVD, and on ‘The Birds’ DVD special features, Veronica is interviewed and shows a signed drawing from Hitch to her for her 13th birthday with the words “To Veronica, the woman I love.”

I’m happy that didn’t turn into part of the “Me Too” movement…Take care, cc.

Celia
Celia

Awwww, 4ever—-so glad to ‘see’ you here—it’s been a while!! Yes, MF’s ‘new version’ seems to be somewhat more impersonal, but it’s nice to still be in touch , albeit not as frequently.
As yourself, my grandparents have an endless stash of every film ever made—-they were cinephiliacs, equipped with gigantic TV screen and seats—their basement looks like a movie theater; including TV shows—drama, comedy, cartoons, sit-coms—-everything and anything under the sun!! And, Hitchcock is at the top of the list!!
I hope you have been well yourself—-
I know Days is your fave,…..I do hope it picks up some steam as it seems to be stagnating—-same rut day-in and day-out. Pardon the pun, LOL.
Your opinion and comments are always succint and to the point—more importantly; always entertaining!!
Soon, my friend. ❤️

Celia

Brody ( I remember him from OLTL) has a gorgeous face, SusieQ—-a bit too short, for my taste. Perfect for Lulu; but, not as a Dante recast. He could be one of the “dates” she has lined up as part of her effort to “catch a thief”?
I don’t know who the lady is, either—-but she’s beautiful–those eyes!!

hi Jimh..
I was never a big watcher of TV.. and most all those people were before I was on earth, I think LOL
And there was no TV in Iraq.
But- y’all will fill me in on who is who.

Jim, what is Google? I have never heard of it. It must be before my time.

su000
su000

Harry ! No worries, I’m here for you 🙂

Google got its start in 1996 — but it wasn’t called that at first.

The company originated with an idea formulated by Sergey Brin, left, and Larry Page, who were both Stanford PhD students at the time. They came up with BackRub, a revolutionary search engine that would rank web pages based on how many other web pages linked back to them, a process they called PageRank.

The BackRub name didn’t last long. They quickly decided that a “googol” — the number one with a hundred zeroes after it — better reflected the amount of data they were trying to sift through. Playing on that word, Page and Brin, whose Stanford dorm rooms comprised their first offices, chose the slightly friendlier name Google for their nascent search engine and company.
(is now worth $743 billion.)
1996!
You were there, Harry!

may this; PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE see a NEW LEASE and/or simply a refluffing of this mega-watt femme fetale … after all that Kevin/Ryan edge… what else can she want?

Ava will adorn the cover of Crimson… is now embroiled AND sizzling with Veronica Cartright… this dame struck gold : “The Birds” w/Suzanne Pleshette and Tippi Hedren ; AND ran the gamut w/ “The witches of EAstwick” Cher, Michelle Pfieffer, Susan Sarandon. Veronica Cartwright is truly that character actor who holds her own. “love her”

no one, will ever forget mother Ava w/Kiki. EVER. this was a magical mother/daughter

it’s really long in the tooth.. just how achingly old , painful to watch… just how much Sonny mistreats Ava… over Avery. pitiful that Sonny and Carly are this unjust , hanging on to STAR . @GH writers… seem to be MOVING Ava … ABOUT TIME

so… whatever happens with Ava and Avery. so be it… as long as it’s as little as possible interaction with Sonny – OR – Carly. BORE BORE and more of much ado about

Ava will move on
Ava has a new lease on life with… ? Scotty, KEVIN,
Ava has more interaction with her brother Julian @Charlie’

whatever course of ACTION THAT MUST be… she’s Maura West

“Carson” is almost as boring as “Jasam.” & The Hair-Flippin’, Stomping, “Ya Know” Laura Wright is almost as unbearable as her Creepy Boy Toy. She adds “ya know” at the end of every sentence.
Now Maura, I love Maura!

su000
su000

hi DMRR..
before the writers went ape crazy with Ava, I wanted Sonny and Ava coupled..
The merging of a Jerome and Corinthos would have been blasting! And- never boring.
Sonny and Ava a true dramatic soap couple, for sure.
Sonny and Carly are a total zero ..

Michael (not Fairman)

That would have been dynamite, I must admit, su000.

“Peter and Maxie are the most exciting, riveting, romantic soap couple ever!” said no one ever. The same is true of Jason and Sam. They keep saying, “OH it’s so wonderful to be together again and not keep it a secret.” I was never cognizant that Sam and Jason were apart. It’s like they are trying to breathe in conflict into JASAM in order to make them exciting–they’re even hitching a ride on the Shiloh Train with the hope that it might make this positively somnolent coupling wake up. It’s not working!

DMRR

Poor Kirsten Storms is being saddled by “The Boyfriend.” He is so creepy and smarmy. Laura Wright’s attempting at propping him up have failed BIG time. Jason & Sam are so boring. The Dawn of the Dead storyline is a dud. I did laugh at the Alexis & Diane scenes, and I like Neil. Julian is being saddled by Kim “Zero.” It’s so disappointing, what this show has become.

rebecca1

I like Wes (Peter). A lot. Great looking and I love his demeanor. I think, unfortunately, that Kristen Storm as Maxi has lost her edge. I don’t know if it’s Kristen or if it’s the current lack of writing for Maxi but there’s nothing left of the bubbly, fun character Maxi used to be. I get that she’s older now and has suffered loss…but she just hasn’t had much of anything to do/sayand when she does it’s just flat. And it seems that the writers are determined to make Maxi/Peter as asexual as a couple can be. If they’re not going to give them romance (which I was all for at the beginning but it’s just a big flop) they need to have them pair up with others.

DMRR

They are boring; although, I can’t think of any couple that has chemistry…?

Hi DMRR; I think Chase and Willow have fantastic chemistry; also like Kevin and Laura. And I LOVE the new shrink, Neal, and think he and Alexis would be great together.

DMRR

Oh, I like the new shrink, too! WOW!

rebecca1
rebecca1

Yes! There’s just something about him…his dry wit, sarcasm and intelligence. Patience. Demeanor…great character! He’s the normal in the midst of crazy. 😉

Whiny Heiny is a ridiculous character and the writing for him is even more ridiculous. Example, last week there was a scene where he & Maxie were discussing a potential “unauthoirized” visit to the WSB facility where Dante is supposedly going through deprogramming or therapy or whatever it is. (Hopefully the one thing he is NOT going through is a recast, but that’s a whole other thread)

Heiny thinks this would be a bad idea, because Maxie’s dad is the head of the WSB and certainly her face would be in their database. Which is true, of course. But an even bigger problem would be that HIS daddy was #1 on the WSB’s “Most Wanted Terrorist List” for decades, and they didn’t seem to find that worth mentioning at all. Not to mention Heiny’s own numerous crimes, which he hasn’t paid for yet. One has to wonder how Jason might react when it becomes public knowledge that “Peter” isn’t Anna Devane’s son after all. It’s not like Jason owes Alex any favors, right?

rebecca1
rebecca1

Satan: Peter did mention his fear regarding how the WSB would view him once they actually got to the WSB headquarters; (albeit after the fact) but, I, as viewer, don’t hold Peter responsible for any of his crimes. He was emotionally abused his entire life. If the real criminals in Port Charles live a cushy little life with a cushy new kitchen, I don’t think an abused boy who grew to be an abused man should feel guilty for anything. As for being Anna’s son? I’m holding out hope he is; and that Scorpio is his father. Robin and Peter, twins…separated, unbeknownst to Anna..at birth.

@DMRR…..There is simply too much deadweight hanging around Port Charles….Kim, Peter, NuNina, Hayden (Again…really?????) and numerous other meaningless characters are dragging down the entire show…Paired with both the appalling cult and various equally lackluster storylines, GH has hit a real low. With such a great core of talented vets like Anna, Robert, Laura, Kevin, and yes, the more recent, yet incomparable, Dr. O, it’s time to return Port Charles to its former greatness and quit messing with what made it a success in the first place: mystery, adventure and a healthy dose of romance!

Shelley Dinner

Perhaps Veronica is filling in for Ilene Kristen as Ava’s mom.

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

I had that thought, too. It would be a great disappointment, if so, and I would accept it only if for some reason Ilene just can’t do it (schedule conflicts, health reasons, etc.).

DMRR

Another actress/character that we don’t need. They are incapable and inept at writing for the onslaught of characters already on the canvas. Yet, Mr. Laura Wright continues to have “storylines” (boring, as they may be), love interests (zero chemistry), and a ticket to the GH Convention and meet & greets (brought to you by his mama bear girlfriend). SAD.

Hayley tweeted a photo of herself in front of the General Hospital sign at their set with the words, “Surprise, Surprise”

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
