GENERAL HOSPITAL's Maurice Benard: 'Maybe I'll be around for the next 50 years'
"To tell the truth, I wanted to retire at 50. But I couldn't do it. We've got kids and bills to pay. Maybe I'll be around for the next 50 years. Maybe I'll end up playing Sonny with a cane and white hair, or no hair at all. We'll see."

"I think it's great that we've been able to bring a little more balance to the character (of Sonny) and to put him in the position of having to fight for the woman he loves. I do think we can be doing some more with the mob, but they (the producers and writers) know what they're doing."

Cops investigating death threats against CORONATION STREET legend William Roache
Police have launched an investigation into allegations veteran actor Bill Roache has been bombarded with death threats. The CORONATION STREET star, father of LAW & ORDER actor Linus Roache, made headlines this week after he gave a controversial TV interview in which he suggested victims of sexual abuse are paying the price for actions in their "previous lives".

He subsequently apologized for his comments, insisting his remarks had been misconstrued, but Roache has reportedly been deluged with threats via social networking websites. A campaign has also been set up on calling for the actor to be fired from his longtime role in CORRIE.

Police officers in Manchester have now confirmed they are investigating reports the star has been threatened.

Jesse McCartney on his new ARMY WIVES role
"I've always wanted to play a soldier and I'd never taken on a character where I'm the happy-go-lucky protagonist. I've played a lot of jerks recently, and this was a chance to, kind of, be the comic relief. He's uncomfortably sweet all the time, which annoys the people in his platoon. As the season progresses, you start to see how Tim becomes a man -- very quickly."
