This week we GASP! with Dreamboat Talentship Marc Anthony Samuel! Not only has he been on a slew of tv shows and every commercial ever, he has played Nurse Felix on General Hospital for the past five years, giving him the groundbreaking distinction of being the first openly gay African-American actor to play the first openly gay African-American character on daytime television. Pretty dang cool, right? Enjoy!

Take it away, Pete!!
