What is General Hospital's Resident Prick, Brad Cooper Going To Do Next?

Talk about sleazy! General Hospital’s gay lab tech Brad Cooper, played to the hilt by Parry Shen, has some  key screen time on the next three episodes of the ABC soap today, Thursday and Friday.

On his website, Shen has this hilarious promo poster ( featured right) which says it all!  Now thus far, Brad has been trying to get in the pants of Felix (Marc Anthony Samuel) and Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell), anyway he can!  And yes, that includes blackmail!  And then there is the major fact that Brad is the sidekick to Britt (Kelly Thiebaud) and is in cahoots with her in her scheme to pass of her baby as Dr. Patrick Drake’s (Jason Thompson)!

So what do you think will happen on the next few episodes involving Parry Shen as Brad?  What is this guys problem? Why is he such a prick? What happened to him that made him this way? Will we ever find out?

Let us know what you think of the character of Brad Cooper and if you are enjoying Parry’s performances!  Watch below some of his work from his first six appearances on GH, in case you need a refresher course!

lol, true, I’m still interested in what’s happening on GH, hoping things will change and the vets will be featured more. I’ll watch again if they are. That’s why I read the articles.

Sorry everything changes in life. They are still on and you are missing a truly great show. Recasts happen, characters move on. Robin is directing and just because you are unhappy with the situation things change.

So do I, but the actors who play Robert, Frisco, & Robin chose to leave GH. I say, let’s embrace those who want to be there! Nicholas is back, and with fun story.

I must of missed something. I thought Robin was still on the show, when found and took off; waiting for her to come back to Patrick maybe after a possible marriage? So she’s gone for good?

Well, “Robin” chose to leave….the verdict is still out on the read deal with “Robert,” and I think Jack Wagner has now made it abundantly clear he wanted “Frisco” to stay…..

There are always actors who are retiring or leaving to try something new and there will always be ‘newbies’ to fill the void. All of your ‘old’ favorites were once newbies….

Well MaddieHayes, I truly understand and watch once a month to see if it’s watchable. Yesterday was one of those days and it sucks. Could only watch about 5 mins before I turned the tv off – I’d rather boil water!

No he’s too gross to be likable. Even the villains are likable, Franco, Carly, etc.

First, as a gay man myself, I am applauded at Brad’s behavior! It is disgusting, however, no different from straight men who have engaged in the same type of activity! Parry is doing a great job at making us HATE Brad! This dude deserves an Emmy and hopefully they will kill his character or find a way to redeem him very soon!! 🙂

I love both Brad and Brit, they are out of the box exciting..

I feel for Parry Shen who plays Brad..
Some stupids will hate him for acting a very bad boy roll./character .
And- Kelly Thiebau is excellent as the Port Charles schemer bitch..
Felix is awesome!

I am looking forward to the explosions coming from Brad and Britt and there evil deeds!!!!!! 🙂

I want more Brad, even when it outrages the fans of Luke, Sonny and Jason.

Brad has only used blackmail to get what he wants.

He hasn’t raped, killed and/or used anyone, that he supposedly loves to get what he wants.

Parry is doing a great job. I can tell because when Brad is around I get mad even before he does something else that makes me mad all over 😉 I think I saw him in a local cable company commercial also.

Parry Shen. I like his name. being able to step outside the box with character exploits… and being the baddie… is what most actors clammor for… and emphatically state in this genre is the most fun to play…. and he does comedy as well. he’s a good actor… and I think he’s cute as a button to boot. What’s not to like… he’s refreshing and totally unexpected and that he’s gay…. even better…. it’s just reaching for more of the same… had he been “straight”. I certainly don’t entertain the “reviews” of other posters’ that he’s a Gay Predator… I… Read more »

UGH! What a disgusting promo! The entire storyline with this guy makes me want to vomit…how anyone can find “Brad’s” predatory nature entertaining is beyond me. He is one sick mister! And his not-so-clever moniker???? Me thinks it is simply a matter of “wish fulfillment” for the ptbs….we’ve all heard the gay rumors about the famous namesake!!!! Seriously, this perverse character has really pushed the boundaries of good taste and it is time for him to go, whether it be by killer mystery or a prison sentence, it makes no difference to me. ( And to think that a substantial… Read more »

Some people take the fictional character and their stories that are just entertainment way too seriously and they need to step back lol

Brad is an awesome soap character, the kind you want to slap!
When his scenes are on my attention is full on him..
He even at time makes me laugh!! (Parry Shen is a great actor, too)

Without the Brad’s and Britt’ s, soaps would not survive, I am loving them both!!

as I gay man I love Brad!! he is over the top.. believe me there are allot of gay man like him and if any gay man on this site say it is not so than you are living in a dream world. Why do most PC folks think gay man are all loving and thoughful. There are alot of gay Pigs out there and brad fits the bill perfectly.

Shay

The sooner the better! Yesterday’s sudden “bud moment” between Brad and Felix made me want to puke!!!! This entire plotline has been just too vile and sordid….first we have “Cooper the Gross Sexual Predator,” now he’s “Mr. Misunderstood,” just like that????? Maybe these two should just run off together….offscreen, of course!!!! And pleeeze take Sabrina with you….she gets more irritating as time goes on! She will never be a fan favorite, so I wish the ptb’s would just cut their losses and get rid of her asap!!!!!

the writers faltered big time… with the Brad fights back his fears… no one gets him… why would he tell Felix, it’s always been him that he’s attracted to. oye! puhlease…. now I really believe the bait and hook premise that the writers are gaping big holes for lack of fresh material. these characters, and not just brad… are languishing, with lack of … quality writing to further along any of the actors. having Brad tell Felix to ask Britt’s mother? just dropped the bomb on this story… not that any one’s waiting with baited breath the outcome…. altho… I… Read more »

I can’t help laughing at some of the things this guy says and does, like “once you go Brad, you never go back.” And him spraying breath spray in his mouth when he goes to visit Michael. The actor is doing a great job, he’s probably having fun playing this character, too.

I’m really enjoying the actor (Parry Shen) and the character of Brad! I hope he sticks around. I’m not finding much interesting with GH right now but I’m finding that I am drawn to his character and hope for more Brad! The actor does a great job of playing evil and sleazy as well as showing the characters vulnerabilities when it comes to Felix. This is one character that will keep me coming back to GH!!! A great villain character who will hopefully get some redemption in the future if given a chance to continue on the show!

Emme Rylan On Her Final GH Scenes: “Laying There Emotionless While My Amazing Costars Cried Over My Comatose Body Was One of the Hardest Acting Challenges EVER!”

If you watched Tuesday’s episode of General Hospital, you witnessed an emotional and heartbreaking episode where friends, family, and loved ones had to say their goodbyes to Lulu Spencer (Emme Rylan) before she is transferred to a long-term care facility to be looked after following her brain injuries and surgery which left her in a coma.

This was to mark the last scenes of Emme Rylan who has exited the series after being let-go.  In story, viewers watched as Nikolas (Marcus Coloma), Maxie (Kirsten Storms), Dante (Dominic Zamprogna), Tracy (Jane Elliot) and a grief-stricken Laura (Genie Francis) sat by Lulu’s hospital bedside telling her they will be waiting for her to wake up, as the agonize over the gravity of the situation.

On Wednesday, Rylan took to social media to tell her fans how difficult it was for her to tape those scenes, when she expressed: “Laying there emotionless while my amazing costars cried over my comatose body was one of the hardest acting challenges EVER! They don’t exactly have you practice that in acting school (Thank u to everyone that noticed).”

In response former GH star Ryan Paevey (Ex-Nathan) who also went through a similar on-screen situation when his character was killed-off tweeted back to Em: “I 100% agree and understand, haha.”

The episode gave  Genie Francis a fantastic palette to play and reminded everyone why she is one of the greatest icons of the genre.

So, what did you think of Emme’s statement on trying to get through those difficult scenes as played by her co-stars?  Share your thoughts below.

Daytime Emmys To Remain Virtual For Upcoming 2021 Ceremony

With an uncertain situation of when live events can get back to normal, or as they have been in the past prior to the coronavirus pandemic, The National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) announced today that it plans on keeping next year’s Daytime Emmys award show virtual, to allow for the 2022 awards cycle to stay on track.

In fact, all of NATAS’s award ceremonies including: the News and Documentary Emmys, Technology & Engineering Emmys and the Sports Emmys will also remain virtual next year.

The Daytime Emmys became the first major award show to air a virtual presentation that others followed back in late June of this year and aired on CBS.

In a statement, NATAS chairman and CEO Adam Sharp expressed on the organization’s decision:“The current timetables articulated by manufacturers project mass availability of vaccinations for the entire U.S. population by mid-summer 2021, potentially permitting a return to more traditional in-person ceremonies later in the fall. However, we have determined that delaying our 2021 events to possibly allow for a compressed calendar of in-person Emmy ceremonies late in the year would result in unacceptable delays to our awards cycle for 2022. Instead, we have decided to remain “virtual” in the format of our ceremonies for 2021 while relying on a substantially pre-COVID awards calendar. In so doing, we believe we will be best-positioned to return to a full, on-time, traditional schedule of in-person ceremonies in 2022.

The dates currently under consideration for the 48th annual Daytime Emmys which would be via two or three nights of presentations are: a combination of dates from Friday, June 25, Saturday, July 17 and/or Sunday, July 18.

For those entering the competition, the entry deadline is February, 17, 2021 with  the nominations not to come till May or June.

So, what do you think about the Daytime Emmys going virtual again for 2021? Comment below.
