DC Exclusive First Look: Sexy Vanessa Marcil Pics From New Web Series! (Photos)


Check out these scorching images of General Hospital and Las Vegas alum Vanessa Marcil from the set of her new Crackle.com web serial The Bannen Way. Marcil plays Madison, a sexy, street smart thief, who proves a ready match for series protagonist Neal Bannen (Mark Gantt). Here’s what the Crackle.com PR peeps have to say about Marcil’s character:

"Madison is a beautiful street thief and brilliant con-artist. No one can be sure what she’s up to, where she’s from, or if her name is even Madison. She proves to be Bannen’s match when he tries to recruit her for a job but his manipulative tactics don’t work on her. Their relationship is a constant chess match that usually ends in a stalemate. She can be his greatest asset but often times turns out to be his foil."

This show looks FIYA! Take a look at the pics below.

    Let me get this straight. Vanessa Marcil made a return to GH all but impossible despite the exhausting and nauseating overtures from Guza… only to do what? A soap… online? I thought the whole idea was to maintain her acting status as having risen above daytime and that she couldn’t come back b/c she was just so busy with other non-daytime acting gigs. None of this makes sense.

    The nail in the coffin has got to be that her "Madison" character is nothing but a reincarnation of GH’s "Sam McCall" character. Vanessa…. you’re officially cookie-cutter. Congrats.  =)  I really didn’t want to see your mousy-whiney antics on GH anyway so I hope this works out of you. Really, I do.

    Wow … she can do a web soap but can’t return to GH? What’s up with that? And then she does a web soap that doesn’t seem that different from what we see at GH…

    That’s crap! Return as Brenda, Vanessa. That would be a way better choice than something like this. Can’t believe it…

    I think we passed any comparison to Sam McCall when the description for her character read brilliant.:P

    This actually looks like a web series that I actually will like. It’s hard for me to get into any of them to be truthful. it kinda reminds me of a show that would be on cable. But a decent trailer does not make a show. Still I don’t think VM will ever come back to GH.

    Brilliant con-artist does not, in itself, imply intellectual (book-smart) intelligence or saavy. Merely that she’s great at ripping people off. That seems pretty in line with Sam McCall. After all, didn’t she spend years ripping men out of their life savings with her black-widow routine? It doesn’t take a genius to be a "brilliant con-artist" – more so an astute understanding of the human condition.

    From what I have read, VM always wanted to come back to GH, but she wanted a more flexible schedule which GH refused to give her. So…maybe the web soap is giving her that? I can’t imagine it’s as time consuming as GH.

    Vanessa did not leave GH to be a "Big Star" and only do features. She left to take a break and spend more time with her son. She came back to GH twice.

    She is working with talented people and having fun with the role which is not the same as her ‘Vegas’ character.

    Personally I don’t want her back on GH since the writers are crap now and they wasted her last time. Plus they overworked her. GH treats their actresses like crap compared to the male actors. See how they treated Genie. She wanted a better contract and outs like Tony Geary but they refused then destroyed her character.

    I seriously doubt Guza or the producers have made any serious offers to her and what story would they give her? Carly (ugh) dominates the canvas now and so does Sonny even though ratings continue to plummet with them featured in the same old same old. Tiic would have Carly winning over Brenda repeatedly and I don’t want to see that.

    She never said she wouldn’t return .. and what does the Sam character that didn’t appear until way after she left GH have anything to do with this web series ???!!

    She wasn’t playing the Sam role so how is it cookie cutter? That’s dumb. VM made the GH ratings jump in her last return even though the writing sucked. She is still popular and a lot of people would like to see her return. Whiny = Carly

    Sam McCall is another "Brenda-bot" in the long line that have appeared on GH.
    I’d love to see VM back on GH but I’m afraid how they may write for her.
    Between CarJax, CarSon and Solivia, where would they put Brenda?  They always put her with Sonny or Jax.  Would be good to see her back with Jason again; they were hilarious together. 
    I’ll watch the web series for Vanessa. It’s interesting to note that "Las Vegas" premiered in Sept. 2003. There was a lot of publicity for the show months before it started. Vanessa played Sam Marquez on the show.
    In late Oct. 2003, Sam McCall appeared on GH.
    Wonder how they came up with that name?

    Dead on MrsNoahDrake – Sam McCall was a dead on shot by Frons at a Brenda-bot, shoot just this week alone I swear Sam was wearing those Brender sleeves VM made famous.

    VM brings in the ratings this is something that has been proven, and it pains me but I agree that until there is a change at GH, I want her to stay away.

    Even though I pine for Brenda/Jason
