General Hospital’s Bruce Weitz Explains Character’s Motivation With Michael

Just what the devil is Anthony Zacchara (Bruce Weitz) up to on General Hospital? TV Guide's  Michael Logan dished with Weitz on what he has in stored for his rival Sonny's (Maurice Benard) son, Michael (Chad Duell).

TV Guide Magazine: This situation is so twisted! Sonny's son Michael killed Anthony's daughter Claudia [Sarah Brown], but Anthony has no problem with that. Instead, he's secretly trying to recruit Michael to be one of his mobsters. Explain this crazy-ass situation.

Weitz: Anthony loves the fact that Claudia is dead and he doesn't care who did it. He got rid of her and he didn't have to do it himself, so he's fine with it. Anthony has nothing against Michael except that he's Sonny's son. If he weren't, he'd probably like the kid. Anthony is only using Michael as leverage against Sonny.

    Bruce Weitz, I am officially in love with you and Papa Z.

    If only Papa Z could take the Corinthos organization down (and Lisa with a ricochet ;) )…
    But as long as Guza is writing this show, there is sadly no chance.

    Give us less Balkan, less Karpov, less Franco and more Anthony (more Helena and more Jerry too) :)

    Wouldnt it be nice if Claudia could come back – I love Anthony Z – look how crazy he looks in that photo. Yea Strato, maybe Anthony can kick the stuffy Balkan’s ass.

    OMG, BW is hilarious…

    My favorite part?

    TV Guide Magazine: What’s your dream storyline for Anthony?
    Weitz: [GH executive producer] Jill Phelps once asked me, “What would you really like to do on this show?” I said, “I would love Anthony to be killed off and have his twin sister from Italy come to America and take over the mob — and I would want to play the sister!” [Laughs] Jill just looked at me like I was nuts.

    First JFP, this is not worth than what Guza writes on a daily basis
    Then I was imagining BW disgused in a woman… I guess we would have found Antonette a really ugly old woman but what a treat it would have been!

    And I second Strato’s love statement! BW I love you and I am so happy that you are back to GH (didn’t say for how long…).

    PS: Anthony horny and harassing Carly should be a blast to watch!

    Forget Franco and the Balkin, GH could have used Papa Z and Helena to reign down terror on Port Charles with all of their shenanigans for years. I can just see Helena dressed to the nines in her Chanel while Papa Z is cruising around in his wheel chair which he uses as a scam.

    Liason4real, always said that I wanted a Helena/Anthony pairing LOL!

    I love your image of a Chanel-Helena hand in hand with a wheelchaired Anthony spreading havoc on PC. Everybody would have rooted for that pair!

    Which is probably why we never got it and got the Balkan and Franco instead!!!

    Aramis270…. Boo to the Balkan and Franco. Helena/AZ would have been a “hawttttt” pairing!… Oh well, I watch OLTL and really enjoyed watching Clint take a walk on the wicked path in getting back at Bo/Nora, and I love all three characters!

    Wasn’t Papa Z shown to have been very upset that someone else had “gotten rid of” Claudia? He hated her but she was HIS daughter… ?
