General Hospital: Another Casting Note!
Bruce Davidson...whom I remember from the '70's movie, "Willard" (with the rats) is coming to GH this summer. From TV GUIDE:
James Franco’s upcoming return to General Hospital as the psychotic artist Franco just got a little juicier now that Bruce Davison is joining the storyline. The Academy Award-nominated actor will do a three-episode cameo as Franco’s eurotrashy art dealer Wilhelm Van Schlagel. An ABC rep tells us that the Franco character, who seems homoerotically obsessed with mob hitman Jason Morgan (Steve Burton), will “return to town to wreak havoc on Jason and Michael and everyone else in Port Charles. His grand finale will be yet another art exhibition that’s more wild and crazy than his last one.”
Ok, whatever...on to bigger and more fun things! Paramount is REMAKING "SoapDish"!! Remember that movie with Whoopi and Sally? Yeppers..
Scoring good critical reviews but only middling box-office, 1991 comedy "Soapdish" is about to undergo the remake treatment over at Paramount Pictures says Pajiba.
The original followed the behind-the-scenes shenanigans of a popular soap opera where the aging 'Queen of Daytime' Celeste Talbot (Sally Field) finds her life turned upside down by an ambitious producer (Robert Downey Jr.), a jealous actress (Cathy Moriarty), and both her niece (Elisabeth Shue) and her ex-flame (Kevin Kline) who end up working on the show.
Maybe we'll get some real daytime actors to get on there!!
