MAURICE BENARD (SONNY) AND EVERYONE, GENERAL HOSPITAL
Some complain that GH revolves around Sonny. But it would be foolish not to take advantage of the remarkable magnetism that Maurice Benard has displayed for the past 11 years.
To embody Sonny is to commit from the inside out, synchronizing a complex chorus of morality and passion on every level. Benard positively hums with it - which helps draw out the essence of every character Sonny crosses. So while he's riveting in scenes with everything from graves to ghosts - it's opposite flesh-and-blood characters like Carly, Sam and Alexis that he has helped spawn three boisterous fan bases. And we may joke about his closeness with Jason (they could be GH's hottest couple), but the truth is, this is one of the most intriguing male bonds on daytime.
Creating sparks is hardly guaranteed, but with Benard at the nucleus, you won't be bored.
(It took everything within me not to puke as I was typing this up.)
