Photographer Jim Warren, who works often with the stars of ABC’s General Hospital, put together the latest celebrity-filled music video during the coronavirus pandemic.

In this one, past and present cast members of the ABC daytime drama series, with their quarantine masks on and practicing social distancing, perform with their ‘eyes’ to the classic Frankie Valli tune “My Eyes Adored You”.

Warren took to Twitter sharing: “Well, here’s some fun with friendly faces from years of daytime tv – and more. I lost count at 30, maybe you’ll recognize them all. The actors made their own videos April 16-19th and I was lucky enough to lay them all down.”    At the conclusion of the video it asks to consider making a donation to FeedingAmerica.com

Participating in the video was quite the “Who’s Who of Port Charles” including: Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky), Dominic Zamprogna (Ex-Dante), Anthony Geary (Ex-Luke), Maura West (Ava), Parry Shen (Brad), Max Gail (Mike), Finola Hughes (Anna), Maurice Benard (Sonny), Steve Burton (Jason), Ian Buchanan (Ex-Duke), William deVry (Julian), Anders Hove (Ex-Faison), Brad Maule (ex-Tony), Kelly Monaco (Sam), Kin Shriner (Scott), Donnell Turner (Curtis) and many more.

Brilliant!!!!!! I think I knew most of them.

The video was sooooo fun and moving! What a great idea!

Very cool video!

So good. I miss watching soap operas all afternoon. That’s one thing about COVID now I actually have to work. Ha ha ha ha ha. Great to see Anthony Geary again. He’s still dreamy.

Awesome video! Very creative idea. I recognized everyone from seeing their eyes. Loved seeing Tony Geary, Jonathan Jackson, Brad Maule, Anders Hove, Ian Buchanan and the past GH stars. Still mad at the powers that be for unnecessarily killing off Duke Lavery in 2015. That was one of the worst writing decisions they’ve made in recent years. Seeing Ian always reminds me of that. But loved the video.

Me too

I love them !

Anders / Faison!!
so good to see him!
I want him back..
The vid was entertaining..
__ ‘had a thought lol;
if this were the old board 🙁
it would have 50 replies 🙂
I miss that board and Faison !!!
0oooh the old board was a—
‘blackboard’ ahaa get it–
hopefully, the soaps can soon start to film, again.
If not I fear the soaps might pass away–

i kind of miss the old board too…Faison is back..he is disguised as Peter with a mask-lol

Hiiii Jimh 🙂
Peter is a twig in comparison to the real deal Faison !
Yes! the old board had an atmosphere, sort a fan family thing going on. We actually had soap conversations..
love hate we had conversations about our soaps and characters, respectfully.
aaahhh the good ol’ days..
I do fear for the soaps if covid19 goes on and on till winter/whenever.
we can possibly lose 6 months of our soaps–
then what ?????

Then i get hospitalized with a nervous breakdown…im near that as it is!!!!

Loved it. So fun.

That was soooo AWESOME! Thank you!!!

Steve Burton Confirms ‘General Hospital’ Head Writer Switch Changed Jason’s Comeback Storyline

General Hospital viewers will see today, Monday, March 4th, the beginnings of the return storyline for Steve Burton and his character of Jason Morgan.

Just how did the recent head writing regime change at GH alter the plans for story for Jason’s comeback? As had been rumored, seems plenty. Back on January 22nd, it was revealed that Chris Van Etten and Dan O’Connor had been replaced by Patrick Mulcahey and Elizabeth Korte. At that time, Burton had already signed-on to return to the daytime drama for the first time since being let go towards the end of 2021.

Speaking with Soap Opera Digest, Steve confirmed that what we will see on-air is from the new head writers and that the direction of the story changed, “So apparently there was a whole different story planned and then the head writer switch happened and then they kind of rebooted (the story arc). I know Patrick (Mulcahey, one of the new head writers) a little bit, but I really know Elizabeth Korte (who was promoted to co-head writer).”

Burton added, “There’s no one in the building that loves that show, knows the history of the character, and is invested in it 100 percent than Elizabeth. There has never been a more deserved promotion, ever. Once I know that she was (one of the head writers), I was like, ‘Oh, this is gonna be good! I cannot wait.’ And it has been exactly that. Everything has been amazing.”‘

In addition, during an Instagram live on Monday with his podcast and comedy show partner, GH star, Bradford Anderson (Spinelli), Burton also commented on the upcoming story arc which brings Jason back to Port Charles. Steve expressed, “The story is not going to disappoint. The scenes are super deep. Frank (Valentini, EP, GH)  and the new head writers took some time to really think this out.”

Burton, being a longtime veteran of the soaps, said Jason’s return is not just isolated to be about him. “Great story on daytime should involve a myriad of people across the board and where it effects everybody,” he shared. The popular fan favorite feels that this story delivers on all levels.

So, what do you think about the head writer change and how it prompted the plans for Jason’s return? Comment below.

Jason Cook Recalls Landing His Soap Roles as DAYS Shawn-Douglas Brady and GH’s Matt Hunter

Daytime fans remember Jason Cook when he became wildly-popular as Hope (Kristian Alfonso) and Bo’s (Peter Reckell) son, Shawn-Douglas Brady on Days of our Lives from 1999-2006. He later made a brief return in the role in 2015 for the series 50th anniversary.

After departing DAYS, Cook was offered a role on General Hospital as Dr. Matt Hunter, the younger brother to Dr. Patrick Drake (Jason Thompson) from 2008-2012. However, during his time on the soaps, and after, Cook has been focusing on his behind the scenes roles and passion as writer and a director of feature films.

Last week, the Michael Fairman Channel welcomed Jason, along with two of the stars of his latest film, Four for Fun, Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Jacob Young (ex-AMC, B&B, GH). During the conversation, Cook revealed his continued admiration for the soap medium and the actors who work in it, and how it came to pass that he landed his parts on Days of our Lives, and then on General Hospital.

Cook spoke on becoming the on-screen son of soap opera’s most iconic couples, Bo and Hope: “I auditioned for Fran Bascom. She was the Days of our Lives casting director at the time. I was never a great auditioner, I don’t think. She made me feel really comfortable. I remember that screen test. And then, I remember when I got the part, I was actually working at a company at a desk job. I got the call at work and I just screamed, and at the time I didn’t quit my job. But then, I got that contract when I was 19-years-old and it totally changed my life.”

But, was Jason aware how key to the show being Bo and Hope’s son would be? “Yeah, my older sister was a fan of the show. She definitely let me know that I better not mess it up, because I was gonna ruin her favorite couple,” he shared. “I remember she printed out the family tree and it looked like a physics diagram. It was so complicated. A lot of detailed work went into it. But, I was excited.”

After being a known entity with a large fan following, eventually Cook made his way to a new role on General Hospital. Jason explained, “GH was fun. That was a situation where Brian Frons (ex-ABC Daytime President) brought me over there. I just told him I didn’t want to be like or want to do Shawn. He’s like, ‘Well, what do you wanna do?’ I said, ‘How can I screw things up around here and shake things up?'”

Photo: JPI

From that conversation things began to formulate. Cook revealed, “We started talking about the TV series House. I think in soaps, there’s an assumption if you’re going on a show that everybody wants to be the hero. I was like, ‘I don’t want to (be). I want to screw everything up.’ And then, they wrote it in that Matt Hunter burns the hospital down within like six months. I was like really proud about that. The other part that I loved about that character is that Matt, and his older brother Patrick (Jason Thompson), were both neurosurgeons. And if you (an actor) resigned your contract (with the show) you go to Patrick, you see Patrick. And if you don’t resign your contract, you see my character, because my character was going to kill you every time.”

For more on the interview, make sure to check out the replay of the livestream conversation below with Jason, Brytni Sarpy and Jacob Young.  Now let us know, did you enjoy Jason as Shawn-D and Matt on GH? Do you hope someday he might return on-screen to the soaps? Let us know in the comment section.

THIS WEEK on GENERAL HOSPITAL: “He’s Back” as Jason Returns; Sonny Sets His Trap for the Shooter

Monday, March 4th is the highly-anticipated return of Steve Burton as Jason Morgan on ABC’s General Hospital. In the newly-released weekly promo for the series, in the final moments of it, you see a man with his hands-up about to turn around which looks like it will be revealed to be Sonny’s former hitman.

In the promo, Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Anna (Finola Hughes), Spinell (Bradford Anderon) and others are intercut looking shocked at who they find on the pier with voice-overs of characters saying, “It can’t be”, “It’s him,” etc.

The story has been building as to who has been behind the shootings seemingly targeting Sonny (Maurice Benard), Selina (Lydia Look) and others related to the mob. When they locate Jason … is he the Jason we knew prior to the tunnel collapsing him towards the end of 2021, where he was believed to have perished? How is this all connected to the intel that Olivia Jerome was apparently killed in prison?

Meanwhile, Carly (Laura Wright) and Drew’s (Cameron Mathison) relationship has shown its cracks. When Carly eventually sees Jason, will it eventually pit brother against brother for the love of Carly? And in this case, is Drew going to be portrayed as the bad guy due to his issues since his time at Pentonville which has shown he has become more obsessed with revenge on Nina (Cynthia Watros)?
