Wannabe Becomes Star!
Tuesday, November 23, 2004
Thanks to the magic of pretaping, the winner of SOAPnet's reality series I WANNA BE A SOAP STAR, is already toiling away on GENERAL HOSPITAL even as viewers wait to see which would-be actor wins the coveted role up for grabs. "We agreed for the most part" reveals daytime talent manager Michael Bruno who joined actress Debbi Morgan (ex-Angie, ALL MY CHILDREN) and GH casting director Mark Teschner in critiquing the contestants. When told that some of his remarks have drawn comparisons to those uttered by AMERICAN IDOL's notoriously snippy Simon Cowell, Bruno responds by pointing out they each have a job to do. "Simon is smart and blunt." Bruno contends. "I do think he could be nicer, but he's not out to make friends". The SOAP STAR born on the Saturday, November 20, episode will begin airing the following week on GH.
