Thursday’s episode of General Hospital saw multi-Daytime Emmy-winning director, Phideaux Xavier, step in front of the camera and have the opportunity to show the other side of his talents, as a singer/songwriter and musician, to GH viewers.

In ‘a life-imitating-art moment’ within the constructs of the storyline, Curtis (Donnell Turner) needs a band to perform on a big night at his new nightclub, The Savoy.

When plans go awry in the band booking department, in steps Brook Lynn’s (Amanda Setton) former record guy, Link, who is up to no good, and gets the band “Phideaux” the gig and they perform for many Port Charles notables and a packed house.

When they take the stage, Xavier performs his new song “Do What You Will”.

Check out the performance below.

The lighting was good and it was nice seeing a scene filled with people. Were those behind-the-scenes crew members pulling double duty as extras?

There you have it.

If that what it takes to keep GH running, I’ll take it. Gawd if we have to watch more GMA or a dumb cooking show I’ll retreat back to the ID Channel ALL day!

That was so painful and uncomfortable to watch. I hope he doesn’t give up his day job.

And don’t get me started on the so-fake-it’s-cringy reactions from the cast.

I’m 70 years old! Wasn’t a bit painful, and at my age I DO know pain.

Being 57 yrs old..and an old 1978 to 1987 huge goth fan… the music had early Bauhaus sound with that classic 80 synth not mention Xaivers authentic appearance to that Era.. I say WELL DOnE ! It was a surprising treat.

Love to hear him do “Haunted when the minutes drag.”

I agree, it reminded me of Peter Murphy. Really good.

Peter Murphy, singing with Billy Idol’s band maybe?

The song was definitely closer to “White Wedding” or “Rebel Yell” than anything Bauhaus ever did.

Can’t disagree that I too hear elements of White Wedding… but perhaps that is the sign of a good performance? That it made many of us hear our old favorite goth/post punk/ earlier alt. Indie all in the one song. Too bad Micheal Eastman didn’t channel Caleb or are you still holding him down there with you

I agree, Brian. Definitely an 80s vibe to it. But those cutaway reactions! Some of those folks should not be caught on camera “rocking out”.

I think Curtis must have been serving up some real booze to keep the cast looking like they really enjoyed it. What the hell, I’m so.old, maybe I don’t know what’s good anymore, just give me some nickles for the Jukebox, and if you didn’t like it, you could always pull the plug.

Bryan Craig Teases His Role in Upcoming ‘Joker’ Sequel

Former General Hospital star and two-time Daytime Emmy winner, Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) has been quite busy these days with his continuing role on Freeform’s Good Trouble and now the biggest tease of all!

Craig took to his Instagram account and posted an intriguing pic, which from all indications mean he has landed a part in the upcoming motion picture Joker sequel Folie à Deux! (“Madness for Two”).

Because details on the upcoming film have been top secret, Craig erased his character’s name on his cast parking sign when he posted the image.

What we do know is that the upcoming Joker sequel will see the return of Joaquin Phoenix in his Oscar-winning role as Arthur Fleck. The cast includes Lady Gaga as Harley Quinn, plus Brendan Gleeson, Zazie Beets, and Catherine Keener.

The film is due out in 2024.

Looking forward to seeing Bryan in Folie à Deux? Comment below.

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.

Then weigh-in, what do you think of Marcus’ thoughts on his exit as GH’s Nikolas Cassadine? Share your thoughts in the comment section.
