Tune In Alert: GH Alum Jeffrey Vincent Parise on THE DETOUR

Beginning tonight, February 21, Jeffrey Vincent Parise (ex-Carlos/ex-Joe, GH) makes his prime-time comeback on TBS’s hit comedy THE DETOUR — playing yet another character named Carlos. “This is now the third Carlos I’ve played!” chuckles the actor, who describes his new alter ego as “not as deadly as Carlos Rivera, but he still is dangerous. And he’s a much better dancer than Carlos. He’s got moves, this Carlos!” On the show, Parise worked heavily with another soap alum, Natalie Zea (ex-Gwen, PASSIONS), who actually recommended him for the job (they’d shot a movie together five years ago and remained friends). He had a blast filming THE DETOUR in New York City and raves, “It’s so well-written, so intelligent and so hysterical. It’s one of those shows that rewards its fans with callbacks to previous episodes and it’s just layered with jokes.” Be sure to check out new season, and for Parise’s reflections on his GH run (and Joe’s curiously short on-screen life), check out the new issue of Soap Opera Digest, on sale now.
