For so long, I have waited for lovable mob bodyguard Max Giambetti (Derk Cheetwood) to get more airtime on General Hospital.
Max is honest, loyal and a real gentleman. My kind of guy!
Cheetwood really brings out the human, endearing side of Max.
And with the romantic pairing of super lawyer Diane Miller (Carolyn Hennesy), we’re finally seeing more of Max.
Max and Diane

The scenes with Cheetwood and Hennesy are one of the few bright spots of the show right now.
Those two are so much fun to watch.
Just yesterday, Max defended Diane’s honor to Russian mobster Andre Karpov.
So Cute!
I also like watching Max’s brother and fellow mob bodyguard, Milo Giambetti, played by Derk’s real-life brother, Drew Cheetwood.

Unfortunately, Milo has gotten even less airtime than his brother.
But things are looking up for fans of the Giambetti/Cheetwood brothers.
EW.com is reporting that Vincent Pastore of Sopranos fame has been hired to play Maximus Giambetti, father to Max and Milo.
Maximus, a big-time mob boss, has gotten the impression from Max that he is the crime boss of Port Charles – not just a bodyguard.
I got this happy tidbit of news from the Derk Cheetwood Message Board, which also provided the Max and Diane photo.
If you haven’t visited the board, it’s a must.
It’s a happy place to post.
Another fun message board is the Carolyn Hennesy Message Board.
Lots of fun happenings there – and everyone is so nice!
Check out both boards.
And tell them Soapbox sent you!
