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

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?

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.

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… Read more »

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!

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… Read more »

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.

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.

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… Read more »

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!!

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… Read more »

“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!

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 ..

“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!

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.

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… Read more »

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… Read more »

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,… Read more »

@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!

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

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.).

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.

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
