He's playing pretty much the same kind of character as he did most of the time on GH.

But playing it better I think. More nuanced. Or maybe it is just the writing.

I will just drop this and then hide but dare I say Bryan Craig is pretty good in Grand Hotel. Much better than Morgan. 

I thought that too, although in all fairness he was given a lot more to work with writing-wise.  And he was simply "better than how he was playing Morgan", not OMG-blow-your-socks-off-A-Star-Is-Born! terrific.  He's still got a long way to go to develop as an actor.

I enjoyed GRAND HOTEL as well, it was soapy, frothy, and fun.  Gave me a real "classic DYNASTY" vibe.  I'm intrigued enough to keep watching.

Funny or Die has a series called A Very Special Episode, where they poke fun of..well, just that. Episodes of old TV shows that featured a lesson. And this week is about an episode of 7th Heaven that guest-starred someone you might recognize from this show.

I so miss JMB as Lulu.

I do too. She was a better actress. Emme Rylan always curls her lips and talks like a 12 year old.

I just caught a commercial previewing the upcoming CBS sitcom “Bob (heart) Abishola” that showed Vernee Watson playing a nurse. She’s listed in the cast on the CBS site so looks to be a series regular.

I know she recently had a child, but I wonder if she's open to a return at some point. I think she was able to portray the personality of Lulu better than ER does.

That is the only time I would approve of an actor being unceremoniously fired to the the old actor back.  All other instances have made me stabby.  And I don't even LIKE Lulu, but JMB was way better.

Tequan Richmond (TJ Ashford) was one of a group of teens being stalked by a killer in "Thriller", an indie horror movie I watched on Netflix for Halloween.  The movie's servicible slasher fun, and he seems to be having fun playing a bit of a bully.

I'm rewatching Dawson's Creek (stop judging me!) and I just realized that the skeezeball fisherman who gets hit on by Abbie and later almost rapes Jen before her grandmother saves her is none other than Neil, Mr. Joe Flanagan! Talk about a completely different character! He's still good looking, though...

I was channel surfing last night and stopped when I saw Ingo. It was the tail end of a 2017 Christmas movie called “A royal Christmas ball.“ Then I saw a very blonde hailey pullos (Molly) playing his daughter!

I have been bingeing The Practice on Hulu and although it was a tiny role, Michael Easton just showed up in a season 3 episode as Helen (Lara Flynn Boyle)’s blind date.  Those who don’t think much of his looks now should see him from back then, because damn! Definitely hot.

He also guest starred on Ally McBeal as a nude model that all the ladies thirsted after I think Ally got to hook up with him.

Eh. Looked like he was channeling Mooby since he was supposed to be some sort of wannabe crime thug, pretending to be a nice a guy.

And I think he died since he just stood there when he set the place where he was standing on fire/blew up.

 Chad Duell, playing the supervillain Death Stroke

For the record, this scene is against two of the weaker of the show's actors. And some bad directing. What I saw was Michael a bit tougher, not the power of Manu Bennett or Charlie Barnett who were in the role earlier.

Yeah he was definitely channeling MB but I still thought he did a decent job. He's no Olivier, but then no one else on that show is either. And if I've learned anything from the Arrowverse (and soaps) it's that very few people are ever really, truly, most sincerely dead.

Unless you take a dip in the Lazarus Pit, if you die on Arrow, then you are most sincerely DEAD. I was thrilled to see he only had one and half lines in the beginning. But then he showed up near the end. Whatever. He's not the worst who's shown up. That would be marblemushmouth HE who shall not be named and is so full of himself arsehole of the worst order.

The character hasn't been killed off or shipped out of Port Charles, but we haven't seen her for ages.
