Guess you can’t keep a loony tune mobster locked in prison for a long term sentence after all! That is what is happening in the latest mob wars on General Hospital, now that Bruce Weitz’s diabolical and crazy Anthony Zacchara is going to be sprung from jail!  Weitz chatted with TV Guide to give the low down on what Anthony Z’s intentions are to get Michael Corinthos offer on the Zacchara’s side and more.   Here are a few excerpts!

Weitz on Anthony recruting Michael to the mob:  “Anthony loves the fact that Claudia is dead and he doesn’t care who did it. He got rid of her and he didn’t have to do it himself, so he’s fine with it. Anthony has nothing against Michael except that he’s Sonny’s son. If he weren’t, he’d probably like the kid. Anthony is only using Michael as leverage against Sonny.”

Weitz on who else Anthony will be mixing it up with in Port Chuck: “He’s going through a whole renewal of his spirit and very busy coming on to women. (Laughs)After this long stint in jail, he’s a real horny devil! And he really goes for it with Carly. He’s in romantic mode-plus! He has some great scenes with Johnny’s girlfriend, Lisa. Also Michael and Abby.”

Weitz on his thought on playing mob stories on daytime: “There’s no real threat on our show because the true soap-opera fans know Maurice Benard [Sonny] is not going to get killed off. So the threat is imaginary. In The Godfather you don’t expect Brando to get shot a quarter of the way through the movie, or that James Caan’s character will die. That’s the real danger of living in the world of mobsters and hoodlums. So you can’t really equate the two. At GH, we’re just having fun.”

Are you looking forward to the unleashing of the zany and evil mob boss?

Dominic Zamprogna Making A Return To General Hospital

After posting a photo from an empty dressing room, Dominic Zamprogna certainly had General Hospital fans interest piqued!  Turns out, Zamprogna is back shooting at the ABC daytime drama series for what it appears to be a short appearance and reprising his role as Dante Falconeri.

As fans know, Dominic departed GH in 2018, after 9 years in the role.  In the photo he posted on social media, Zamprogna is in one of GH’s temporary dressing rooms for the day.  His original dressing room was re-assigned to Josh Swickard (Chase), when Dom exited the show.

The last time viewers saw Dante was in the Sonny-centric episode; where Dante is the mobster and Sonny is by the book.

In current GH story, the character of Dante has been recently mentioned following his wife, Lulu (Emme Rylan) being stabbed by serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain (Jon Lindstrom).  Dante’s parents, Olivia (Lisa LoCicero) and Sonny (Maurice Benard) also discussed his whereabouts. Dante had gone undercover on a major case after leaving Port Charles.

From all reports, it seems that Dominic is making a short return, but it will be more than just a one-day stint.  So, stay tuned.

So, will Dante return to Lulu’s side? Do you hope Dominic’s return means more down the line? Comment below.
