Ricky Martin (ex-Miguel Morez, “General Hospital“) was a guest on the Thursday, August 16 edition of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” and the singer/actor along with host Jimmy Fallon spoofed his stint on the ABC Daytime drama series.
In late July it was announced that Martin had signed a talent holding deal with Universal Television, which will look to develop a television series and specials with him in a leading role.
“Ricky is an iconic superstar who is as talented as he is popular,” said Bela Bajaria, Executive Vice President, Universal Television, in announcing the deal. “Whether he’s performing before sold-out concert crowds, or starring on Broadway, where he is currently playing to SRO in ‘Evita,’ Ricky connects with his audience in a very palpable way – and we are thrilled that he will be adding TV star to his incredible resume.”
Martin joined the cast of “GH” in 1994 as the character Miguel Morez, the father of Juan Santiago through his teenage relationship with Lily Rivera. He left the series in 1995, four years before becoming an international music sensation with the launch of his english speaking self-titled album. “Ricky Martin” has sold more than 22 million copies worldwide since its May 1999 release.
