In a recent Daytime Confidential Podcast I suggested that it be great cross promotion opportunity for General Hospital to have admitted soap fan and Grey's Anatomy star Chandra Wilson drop by Port Charles as a patient at General Hospital. My theory was that there is guest spot gold waiting to be mined by having Wilson portray her primetime character as a patient in the Port Charles emergency room.
Turns out I'm not the only one who thought having her guest on General Hospital could be a good idea. TV Guide Canada's Nelson Branco is reporting that "she almost took a guest-starring role on GH during the Writers’ Strike."
Personally, I think having Wilson drop by General Hospital should still be an option on the table, even if it has to wait until the week after Grey's Anatomy's seaon finale in May and then promoting the hell out of during the season finale.
