General Hospital News: Maurice Benard’s Son Joshua Benard Lands Hot New Role On HBO

According to reports, Joshua is starring in The Rehearsal, which is set to premiere on Friday, July 15 at 11pm. Maurice said on Twitter, “I’m so proud to say my son, Joshua, is in this. And as everybody already knows, Nathan Fielder is freaking hilarious!”

In The Rehearsal, Nathan Fielder gives people the opportunity to rehearse for their own lives. HBO wouldn’t say whether it was scripted or more in the vein of Nathan For You. And apparently, the series is already getting a lot of laughs from critics.

Now, as far as whether or not his famous father gives him any acting tips, Joshua revealed, “My dad was on set, but he was doing another scene. He doesn’t usually give me advice with acting. Sometimes I say, ‘Just tell me something! Tell me whatever!’ and he’s like, ‘No, if I don’t need to, that means you’re doing good.’ That day, he didn’t give me anything, but the first time I was on, I was like, ‘Oh, shoot, how do I hold a gun?’ It was a big day, there were a lot of people there, and I was a bit nervous. But this day was just super-chill and fun. I wasn’t really nervous at all. My dad was on set, but he was doing another scene.”
