Great news Spinelli fans! Soap Opera Digest is hearing that fan favorite Bradford Anderson is being set to reprise his role of the computer nerd we all know and love on General Hospital!

Fans last saw Anderson, it was around May during the Nurses Ball where after leaving Ellie (Emily Wilson) to try to rekindle something with long time love and mother to his daughter, Maxie Jones (Kirsten Storms), eventually he reunited with Ellie and left Port Charles, again.

Now with the new writing regime’s scripts about to take hold in the very near future, it looks like Spinelli is being written back into the canvas.

But what will bring Spinelli back?  Will he finally hold an important clue so that “Jake” remembers he is Jason (Billy Miller) in time for November Sweeps? 

Share your thoughts below, and if you are glad Bradford will be making another return to the ABC daytime drama series!

I’m a fan of Spinelli so I think it’s great news this character is back! But, nooooooo…let’s hope Jake realizes he’s Jason before November! It’s beyond ridiculous at this point…

I so agree…do the Jason reveal sooner…dragging it out is why there is a ratings decline!!!

Perhaps, Spinelli will be the catalyst to break through Jake’s buried memories. Could it be that is the reason he’s back? Hmmmmm.

I know…they better get their act together before GH becomes just another memory.

Spinelli looked at Jake’s butt and thought Jason immediately..don’t know what that was about..so he’ll probably be the one to dig up truth with Carly and Sam harping in his ear like the two shrews they are written as…lol

That is hilarious,davlestev. I missed that. Jake’s butt brought memories of Jason to Spinelli’s mind? Perhaps, Jake’s gait….his mode of walking will do the trick.
But, seriously. I agree with you, as I stated above……what other reason would there be for bringing Spin back? It must be to help reveal Jake’s true identity….it could only mean that time is nigh….yes?

)ooh goodie!
Spinelli’s back!
I like him 🙂

((wonder what happend to Port Chuck))

Yeayyyyy, su….same here….his brainiac disposition and that certain bashfulness/humility endears him to me…..I dig that. I had a physics teacher who would say, “I can dig that…” whenever I gave him my version of the answer…LOL. Spinelli reminds me of him. So out-there-smart.

I hope his return is better than his last visit which was just to drag out the Maxi/Nathan pairing which is a snooze…i might watch some eps as soon as the new writing team take over…i only watch the last five minutes and previews now!!!

@jimh.
Hey, Jimh. I can understand what you’re saying….I suppose you can only take Spinelli in small doses. But, I’d rather be amused by him than wanting to punch Morgan and Sonny out…LOL.

I hear you, CeeCee!!!! How can one not LOVE Spinelli’s use of unique verbiage, extremely descriptive vocabulary and clever nicknames for Port Charles’ denizens???? His idiosyncratic speech tendencies are what always grabbed me about this most special of characters! Plus, it’s nice to have someone of far above average intelligence (as opposed to the often subpar….) turning up on the GH canvas….let’s face it, Dr. O. can’t pull all the intellectual weight to compensate for the immense number of dullards that populate Port Chuck! (That would be the town, not the band! LOL.)

Yay! I love Spinelli and I hope he and Maxie reunite!

I hope Jake remembers he’s Jason before November but I’ve said this before, maybe Spinelli can come to Sonny and Carly’s wedding and say something that triggers Jake/Jason’s memories that Jake searches out Spinelli and discusses whatever Spinelli had said. Jake has been having flashbacks already and he is right on the verge of remembering. It would only take someone like Spinelli who was Jason’s friend to help open up the flood gates. I love Sonny/Jason/Spinelli interactions. Bring Spinelli home to Port Charles.

Who cares? This character is useless. nerdy guy bad actor. ABC just pull the plug and cancel Gh. Bring back one Life To Live.

From your lips to God’s ear! I agree 100%!! GH out – OLTL in!!!

CeeCee

Well, now, Erin. I will always mourn OLTL, and hope against hope it could return, but, realistically, it’s not going to happen. I am a relatively new fan of GH….I love it……I critique many of the characters and storylines, as I do my other two remaining soaps…..but, I do not want GH gone from the soap world or the land of television.
I understand we all get frustrated, believe me, most storylines move as slow as molasses, but I do enjoy GH. Hang in there. LOL.

Hey Erin FrankenRon tried their damndest to turn GH into OLTL . Look at the ratings.

There’s no way oltl can return and be that show you loved so it’s pointless to want it to come back, even the online version was bad.

I adore bradford and his character. however, what started bothering me, is when they started writing him as a lead character, rather than as a supporting character. when, they started giving him as much screen time as jason, i started getting very bored. i love this character, but sparilngly and in a supportive role. and when they started to write him, even as a hunk i thought that was odd. i have no prob admitting that i don’t watch an entire soap for a character like spinelli. he adds to the humor and wit. however, i have no prob admitting… Read more »

I think Spinelli is an integral part of the Jake/Jason reveal.
It would only make sense.

So glad to hear he’s coming back.

He plays a really good nerdy guy.

I hope he brings Jason back to us.

Spinelli makes me SMILE.

SOOOO glad Brad’s coming back (let’s hope for good). Sam, the PCPD, organized crime, you name ’em…all need the Jackal’s mad skills. Maybe things will actually get resolved with his help. Maybe he came come back and identify Jake/Jason’s behind again.

Lets just hope he is the toned down Spin. That mouth , like the old Maxie’s made my FF finger itch. I like the actor , but if he is coming back to kiss Jason’s butt. fergetaboutit. Guza is gone let it stay that way.

Spinelli was to me, a one trick pony. Too much! However, if you bring him in and use him in small doses and have him be part of the Jason reveal, okay. Plus, I would like to see Hayden get a hold of the Jackyl and use him as her chew toy!

hey Timmm..
did you not notice how RC had calmed down Spin? Looks like a turn for him..
RC also took away Olivia’s strong bronx accent, she is more sophisticated now.
RC has mellowled and softened Dr. O .. her accent is no longer as prominent.

I am looking forward to a calmer Spin..

So is he coming back full time or just another guest appearance?

I’m a huge Spinelli fan, and I’m glad he’s coming back! But hopefully this return isn’t like his most recent one. Spinelli as a vindictive, manipulative person is NOT the real Spinelli. Now that new writers are on board, maybe they’ll redeem his character after all the trouble he caused for Maxie and Nathan, and even his relationship with Ellie. My bet is that he’ll be back for when Jake is FINALLY revealed as Jason, which will hopefully happen before November Sweeps.

I like Spinelli I’m glad he is coming back, I’m with a lot of others why wait until the Nov sweep for the reveal of Jason. why drag it out

I love BA and his character, Spinnelli. Unfortunately, this is just a short visit to help with the Jason reveal. RC sucks. They brought back Spin just to mess with the Spixie fans and the Spixie lovestory. His last on screen appearance was ridiculous. Nathan is growing on me but he’s just too perfect and Maxie is boring with him. My hope for the Jason reveal was for Sam and “Jake” somehow both end up at the Chinese restaurant that they got married at on their Wedding Anniversary and the memories just flood back to Jake to where he passes… Read more »

GH needs someone like spinilli to give the show the humor and action this show has been lacking. Please replace Valerie and Kiki neither does anything for the show. Get some real acting going. Give spin a bar so he can sing I miss the entertainment. Not interested in discussing yet another social issue with bipolar sorry. Seen enough of Sonny and Carly’s weddings. There’s so much unused talent here remember the old GH? Utilize the seasons, don’t worry about offending someone.

According to Deadline: “GH is now targeting the week of July 20 to resume taping. The situation remains fluid as new infections have been soaring in Los Angeles.”

General Hospital was previously eyeing a return to production this coming Monday on July 13th, before the COVID-19 outbreak saw a spike in numbers.

While GH is pushing itself back another week, The Young and the Restless is at this moment preparing to start taping new episodes beginning on Tuesday, July 14th.

B&B is already back in production and Days of our Lives is now targeting a September 1st restart.

So, glad that GH is holding off a little bit longer to ensure safety first for all involved from cast, and crew? Comment below.

GH’s Mark Lawson Fuels At-Home Workout With Soap Opera Competition: “Dante, Dante, Dante, Dominic, Dominic, Dominic … But What About Dustin?”

As fans and colleagues of General Hospital and former One Life to Live star, Mark Lawson (Dustin, GH) know, he often posts on his Instagram account at-home workouts from his garage including: exercises with: kettlebells and free weights. In real-life, Lawson is a fitness guru, as well.

In one of his most recent posts over the holiday weekend, Mark used the constant chatter of a potential return of Dominic Zamprogna to GH to reprise his role of Dante Falconeri (which would pit Mark’s school teacher alter-ego Dustin at-odds with Dante, for the love of Lulu (Emme Rylan)) to charge up his workout routine! So what’s a guy to do?  Bicep curls!

Next, fueling his workout in a hilarious send-up, Lawson, as he is curling dumbbells remarks: “You want Dante back? Dante, Dante, Dante … Dominic,Dominic,Dominic … It’s all you talk about.  It’s all you care about, but what about Dustin?  What’s up with Dustin?  Where’s good guy Dustin? School teacher Dustin, who never shot nobody.  Never hurt anybody and all he wanted was a girlfriend.   All everybody talks about is Dante, Dante, Dante. Dominic, Dominic, Dominic.”

You can watch Mark’s IG post below!

Then let us know, if you hope there will be some healthy soap opera competition for the love of Lulu down the line between Dustin and Dante, if Dominic returns to the show.  If he does return, would you be Team Dustin or Team Dante? Share your thoughts via the comment section.

GH’s Michael Easton Posts “Ask Me Anything” Part Two

Over the coronavirus pandemic General Hospital star Michael Easton (Hamilton Finn) has been answering several fans questions posted to him in a series of posts on his official Facebook page. 

This week, Easton posted part two of his “Ask Me Anything”, and the fan favorite said he he will do his best to get through everyone’s questions and thanked those who made donations to America Health Care Workers and food banks during COVID-19.

In part two; questions ranged from: his connection with his on-screen brother played by Josh Swickard, if he would ever consider a return to Days of our Lives to reprise the role of Tanner Scofield (his first soap role), what is his favorite part of playing Hamilton Finn, and the casting of his on-screen daughter Violet played by Jophielle Love and more.

One question posed to Easton revolved around the just completed Daytime Emmys, when he was asked: “How many times have you submitted yourself for the Emmys? Some actors seem to put a real emphasis on being nominated but you don’t seem to care that much?”

Michael responded: “I’m pacing myself. I’ve maybe submitted three or four times in twenty years. It’s a lovely honor but not something I focus on. Everyday I try to give the best, most truthful performance I can and as I long as I can do that…I live with myself.”

Make sure to “Like” Michael’s official Facebook page, if you have not already to see more of his “Ask Me Anything’s”

So, what are your hopes for Hamilton Finn when Michael returns to taping new episodes of General Hospital in the future?
