Revealed today by the Daytime Emmy-winning star himself, General Hospital’s Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) is doing a little moonlighting this week filming a guest-star role on ABC’s Castle!
As soap fans know, Castle has been very welcoming casting those in the soap genre on the crime series, in part due to series star Nathan Fillion, who got his start as a young Joey Buchanan on One Life to Live.
While not much is known of just who Benard will play on an upcoming episode of the primetime drama, Maurice revealed on Twitter today, “On my way to film CASTLE. Love the show — excited to do something different.”
According to sources at ABC Soaps In Depth, Benard was given the time off to do the primetime series and he wasn’t shy about expressing his gratitude to the soap’s executive producer, Frank Valentini, for making the shooting schedules work together.
So, what do you think of Maurice Benard appearing on an upcoming episode of Castle? Will keep you posted when more on this role and the airdate on his episode becomes available!
