NEWS: Soap Stars in Pittsburgh, Victoria Rowell, Franco

Stars Come Out For Soap Star Spectacular in Pittsburgh
"This has always been a great town and they are wonderful supporters of GUIDING LIGHT. A lot of great e-mails and fan mail from the fans of Pittsburgh when the show went off the air," Robert Newman said.

"I think that they spend years and years and years participating and watching a show and supporting us. It's good to give back. It's fun," Brandon Beemer said.

"I haven't been back to Pittsburgh since I graduated about five years ago, so that's a huge selling point for me because I love this city. I think it's kind of like a diamond in the rough. Nobody really knows how cool Pittsburgh is unless you lived here," Van Hansis said.

  1. You should try to get Franco to do a video blog of him filming himself while watching himself on General Hospital...specifically during the scenes that show him in his film/documentary/Moca performance art piece. Because there can never be too much Franco in a single scene or in all media.
