General Hospital News – Sonny Corinthos A Tough Mob Boss
A tough mob boss, Sonny yelled at his father Mike when he misplaced a huge amount of cash, but found it later in a cigar box.
Sonny told his wife Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) and Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) that Mike had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease and he sobbed, as he realized that there was nothing he could do to help his father.
He struggled to remain strong when Mike didn’t recognize him as his son. Sonny then reflected on his life how things could have been, including how his son, Dante Falconeri (Dominic Zamprogna), could have become involved in the mob.

Sonny also listened as Mike struggled to come to terms with the fact that he will one day no longer be able to care for himself. Sonny also helped out his father by singing along when Mike forgets the words to Frank Sinatra’s Summer Wind at the GH annual Nurses Ball.
Benard began his acting career as Nico on All My Children, a role he played from 1987 to 1990. He also portrayed Desi Arnaz in the TV movie Luci & Desi: Before The Laughter in 1991.
