It’s hard to believe but it has been 18 years since soap superstar Jack Wagner has played super spy Frisco Jones on ABC’s General Hospital!  Well, all of that is about to change on Monday, when Jack brings Frisco home to Port Charles!

And in an exclusive teaser and preview of what is to come, Access Hollywood was on set with Wagner when he taped some of his key scenes with former real life wife and on-screen partner Kristina Wagner (Felicia)!

Wagner told Access Hollywood on coming home to GH:  “It is a bit weird, I’ll tell ya.  I think in life we can never anticipate where it’s going to take us.  So to be back here and working with Kristina (Felicia)my ex-wife who is just so beautiful and wonderful, and to have so many of the core characters back on the 80’s when it was General Hospital was huge, its been awesome!  I’m really happy and I am glad I came back. ”

Access Hollywood promises more on Monday with Jack; including the taping of some emotional scenes with Felicia and Frisco!  Now, watch the segment after the jump, and check out the retro clips of Frisco in the 80’s and some of your other all-time favorites!  Then let us know, are you excited about a Frisco and Felicia reunion?

The man ia a great golfer therefore out in the sun a lot and he also has had a history with alcohol. That unkind people have talked about on twitter. Some men are not any different then women in the industry they get caught up with plastic surgery. Just one of those guys that plays hard but I still love him and will take him anytime over the no talent newbies.

Wow….who says guys can’t be catty…meow! Here we are in what we thought were the death days of soaps when we wouldn’t have these shows to faithfully watch every day, some of you mystify me with your comments. GH is doing great…in fact probably helping Katie in some markets and Frank/Ron are bringing back favorite characters that the audience hasn’t seen in decades and all you can whine about is a Wagners face? I’m just astounded. News flash to Matthew and Joe, we ALL age. I’m sure it’s soooooooooooo much fun to comment behind a computer and one doesn’t see… Read more »

hey ROBBYROB! Seems like your face work didnt go well either like Jack Wagner’s didn’t guess I struck a nerve… Pitty Maybe, JUST MAYBE if people DID just age garcefully instead of going for the scalpel or the botox then it wouldn’t BE such an ageist society. THEY are the ones that are feeding into it…NOT ME. And don’t you dare sit back and criticize my observations. They have nothing to do with who Frank and Ron are bringing back. Apples and oranges. Just because they gave JW a boat load of money to pop in for a small stint… Read more »

So Sorry Joey…didn’t realize your little snippy comment about Wagner’s face was about him only staying for a short term gig. Hmmm….I should have thought that was your intention all along. Silly me indeed. So GHs bad ratings are solely from short term gigs?? Not the previous regime killing off beloved characters that HAVE stayed decades? Not the previous regime for making GH so dark & violent that viewers turned away. Nope, according to your inspired braintrust, its because certain actors dont stay on their soaps for decades. Wagner has a lame career as you say. Why be pissed at… Read more »

LOLZ @Robbyrob. First of all I’m 30 so I highly doubt I look like I have aging issues at this point. On the contrary I’ve been told I have a baby face and people can’t believe I’m even 21 at the liquor store half of the time. And I resent your implication that I’m not an enormous fan of Jack Wagner/Frisco. If you had read my own personal comment further down and not just my reply to Joe’s matter-of-fact observation maybe you would have realized that I’m thrilled he’s back. This doesn’t mean I don’t resent Jackie Zeman who I… Read more »

I am so excited about Jack Wagner (Frisco) returning, and yes, I would love for Frisco&Felicia to reunite, as much as I love Mac. There is no couple on GH that has ever been as magical as those two were for me. I hope Jack will get a chance to sing ..

I was young but I remember when he was abducted then came back from the ‘dead’ after being held captive and Felicia had moved on with Colton Shore. One of my earliest GH memories. When I think of my childhood, Frisco and Felicia always come to mind.

Die Hard General fan since the days of Scottie, Luke and Laura and I’m usually good at guessing what’s next but this threw me for a loop even with all the previous cast returning…I am very glad about Genie Francis’ return but I have mixed emotions about Jack Wagner. Mac deserves some happiness and not Frisco’s second’s. The story lines on General keep coming and that keeps me watching…welcome back Frisco.

GH’s Rebecca Herbst Thanks Fans for the Birthday Love

She is not often on social media, but when she does show up, it delights so many of her enduring fans. General Hospital’s Rebecca Herbst (Elizabeth), who yesterday celebrated her birthday on May 12th, took to Twitter to share warm ‘thank you’s’ to a few fan factions who sent her some lovely gifts in honor and support of their favorite soap star.

Herbst expressed: “Yesterday was such a beautiful day! THANK YOU for all your sweet Birthday messages! #Friz & #Liason showered me with the most gorgeous flowers, cakes & goodies. And #Friz donated $2500 to #SmileTrain.  I felt very loved. I’m so grateful for each & every one of you. …XO”

Of course, the Friz fans loved Liz with Franco (Roger Howarth) and the Liason fans are those who love Liz with Jason (Steve Burton).

Now with Roger Howarth returning to the show – in what is at this juncture still a mystery as who he will play – will Rebecca be paired with Roger in story again, or not this time?  Do you think Liz might end up romantically with Finn (Michael Easton), or is there still a chance that down the line Liz and Jason could get back together, or could Liz meet someone new? Only time will tell!

For now, Herbst was thankful for the money donated to the Smile Train charity and all the wonderful gifts and messages that came her way.

So, what did you think of Becky’s thank you message?  Who are you hoping Liz winds up with romantically in the future?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GENERAL HOSPITAL Touches on Racial Profiling, Social Injustice and Bias In Key Scenes with Portia and Jordan

This week ABC’s General Hospital took the opportunity to write in to their scripts and story, the issue that has been so prevalent in our country now and for decades that of racial profiling, injustice, bias, gender equality and more rolled into scenes featuring: Brook Kerr (Portia), Briana Nicole Henry (Jordan), Sydney Mikala (Trina) and William Lipton (Cameron).

When Portia comes to the boxing gym for a workout and comes upon Jordan hitting the boxing bag hard over the the incident with Cameron in the hospital garage, it spurs a greater conversation.

Jordan tells Portia about the situation that arose with Cameron and a gun, and Portia says she heard about it.  Jordan knows if Cameron’s skin was a different color, she may not have been able to de-escalate the situation and talk her officers down, if she had not arrived on the scene in the nick of time.

This launches the two women into an important conversation on racial profiling, social injustice, white privilege and gender bias that they have found themselves dealing with in their professions (Portia is a doctor and Jordan the police commissioner) and their children’s lives.

Later in another scene, Trina reminds Cameron how they, along with Joss (Eden McCoy) were pulled over by a cop last summer when they were driving around the backroads.  She goes on to say when Cameron questioned why they were being stopped, it scared her.  She feels if Joss and Cam were not there, she would have likely been pulled out of the car and pinned to the ground by the cop.  Trina notes she put aside her fear and never said anything to them, because they would never understand.  Trina tells Cam he needs to realize how lucky he was the other night when nothing happened to him after his run in with police.

You can watch the conversation below in scenes with Briana Nicole Henry and Brooke Kerr.

Then let us know, did you like how GH wove this social message into the story?  Share your thoughts in the comment section.

GH’s James Patrick Stuart in the Cast of Disney Channel’s Super-Villains Pilot ‘Amy From Amarillo’

Casting news was recently announced for the Disney Channel’s upcoming half-hour live-action comedy pilot with a working title of Amy From Amarillo.

According to Deadline, while the series has named actress Isabella Pappas in the title role of Amy, none other than General Hospital star James Patrick Stuart (Valentin Cassadine) is also noted to be a part of the cast.

In story, the project follows a family of super-villains who must go on into hiding in Amarillo, Texas when they fall afoul of the League of Villains and are about to be liquidated.  Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.

Those joining Stuart and Pappas in the cast include: Hilda Spellman, Patricia Belcher, Kayden Muller-Janssen, Malachi Barton, Reed Horstmann and Lucy Davis will plays Amy’s mom, Eva aka Spark, a feisty supervillain who shoots electrical current out of her hands.

Production on the pilot is set to begin this month.  Stuart will be continuing his role on GH as per usual.

Furthermore, James took to Twitter this morning to clarify for inquiry GH fans who were concerned about the status the project might cause for his role on the ABC daytime drama series: “I am currently working on a Disney Channel comedy pilot. We film 15 minutes from the GH stage so, should the show get picked up for series, and while it would create scheduling headaches for some very cool people, I have no plans to hang up Valentin’s dancing shoes any time soon.”

So, intrigued by this pilot and what role James will have within it? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
