Portia’s brother (Brook Kerr) is making a return to Port Charles and General Hospital! That’s the word from actor Gavin Houston from an interview segment with Augusta, Georgia’s ABC affiliate WJBF.

Houston will reprise his role of Zeke in upcoming episodes of GH, now celebrating its 60th anniversary on the air.

Gavin shared “I’m still on General Hospital actually … I’m coming back for this meaty storyline in like two weeks.”

In addition to GH, Houston has quite the impressive resume as soap fans also remember his work on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots in the role of Jeffrey. The show ran for 8 seasons ending in 2021. He also portrayed Remy Boudreau on Guiding Light from 2002-2005.

When asked about being part of the GH canvas during its 60th anniversary celebration, Houston shared: ‘It’s such a blessing because I remember being in school and like everybody had like grandmothers or parents, who watch their stories. Growing up, soaps were such a big thing. I’m always grateful.”  He added, “It was great to be a part of that achievement for them.”

Zeke was last on-screen during Portia’s wedding to Curtis, (Donnell Turner) when Houston appeared in episodes from February 7 to the 15th of this year.

Looking forward to seeing Gavin back on your screens on General Hospital? Comment below. But first, check out the chat with the actor with WJBF’s Karlton Clay.

Okay good. One-half of the return we want to see. Now bring back Papa Robinson, and ditch some of the unnecessary staff at General Hospital, and we’ll be on the right track!

I agree!!

Bring back jason.GH alwayd finds a storu line to bring back the ptesumed dead

Jason and Ingo are totally irrelevant and unnecessary. Haven’t missed them for one second. Massive egos no loss.

Steve Burton has always been down to earth and cool with fans

Steve Burton has another job so highly unlikely any time soon

Yes!! I was hoping that they would bring him on in some capacity! Now figure out a way for Dad to come back too! Alexis needs a love life, and if Robert and Diane don’t work out, there could be a little something there too!! Bring on the Robinsons! ❤️

Bring back Steve Burton, the show hasn’t been the same with out him

I totally agree! Bring Steve Burton back!

The show nothing with out Steve Burton. You need to pay him any amount of money. He make the show.I have been looking at General Hospital. For 45 years it’s for boring.

But he signed a contract for Days of Our Lived so… not happening

Days didn’t require the COVID-19 vaccine that he wouldn’t take for GH and that was their reasoning for letting him go

Maybe he could be a love interest for Jordan, Maxie, Elizabeth or Alexas ( age doesn’t seem to matter on GH). Bring Portia’s dad back too.I wish they would get rid of Nina all together. I thought she was an awesome character when Michelle Stafford played her crazy side but now she is just nauseating. I do not want Sonny and Carly back together though. He preaches loyalty and family but that only seems to pertain to others with him. I know a lot of people don’t like the Carly/Drew pairing but I think he is good for her. I wouldn’t have minded them pairing Carly with Brick but once again that would be disloyal to Sonny and he could not have that. Would have been fun though. Please bring back Hayden so Finn can have a real love life, not that wishy, washy crap with Elizabeth. He needs Hayden to give him a spark not to mention she is Violet’s mother and she needs her. They also need to give Brooklyn a storyline where she is not always making bad decisions that keep her under the thumbs of manipulators. Sorry, Tracy that includes you. She just got rid of of that slime ball now Granny wants to have her leak Deceptions secrets. I love the character of Brooklyn, Amanda Setton plays her so well. Her eyes express so much. If they are not going to put her back with Chase then give her another storyline that doesn’t involve someone always using her. Maybe flip her switch and pair her with Kristina.

I enjoyed Gavin on The Haves and Have Nots..Great actor look forward to seeing him GH!

Yes please bring back Gavin Houston and give him a role that shows how talented he is as an actor, thank you.

Looking forward to seeing Portia’s family grow and to see where he ends up in story.

Great To have gavin houston bring Portia sdad 2

I guess Gavin will be Jordan’s love interest. Besides Ava she’s the only one without a man.

If they cut Kin Shriner to bring in another newbie, that is 666% not cool.

David Gail, Former ‘Port Charles’ Star, Cause of Death Determined; Mother Speaks Out on Dangers of Pharmaceutical Addiction and Fentanyl Epidemic

David Gail, who played Dr. Joe Scanlon on Port Charles (1999-2000), and who also appeared on Beverly Hills 90210, cause of death has been revealed. The actor passed away on January 16th at the age of 58.

According to the toxicology report, Gail died of anoxic-ischemic encephalopathy, which is a brain injury caused by a a lack of blood flow, following resuscitation from cardio pulmonary arrest due to the drug intoxication. The report also revealed that drug intoxication with amphetamines, cocaine, ethanol and fentanyl, were also involved.

Gail’s mother, Mary Painter, spoke to Deadline on the findings and opened up to what led to David’s ultimate passing. Gail was found unresponsive by emergency personnel who attempted to save his life. Eventually, he was put on life support where he remained for several days till his death.

In her statement, Painter shared, “It breaks my heart to learn that my son died this way. David became reliant on medicine many years ago, after multiple surgeries on his hands and wrists. He lived in enough pain to prevent him from working for almost a decade, with relief only achieved through full disability, physical therapy and pain medicine.”

She then added, “He struggled to stop taking pharmaceuticals and did before turning toward a more Eastern pain management including acupuncture and natural medicines. I can only assume that his former opioid dependence played a part in self-medicating from uncontrolled sources.”

David’s mother expressed a very important social message for our time about addiction that she hopes other parents remain aware of: “David’s death shines a light on the countless innocent victims of pharmaceutical addiction and the fentanyl epidemic that has taken so many of our sons and daughters. Please keep David and others battling pain or dependence, in your thoughts and prayers.”

Gail’s other TV credits included parts on: Savannah, Matlock, Murder, She Wrote, Doogie Howser, M.D., and Perfect Opposites.

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Spinelli Serenades Maxie Then They Kiss! Are you in Favor of a ‘Spixie’ Reunion?

Spixie fans finally got their wish, sort of, on Thursday’s February 22nd episode of ABC’s General Hospital.

While Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) and Maxie (Kirsten Storms) have been each others orbit and married to other people, have had children, and been each other’s best friends, it’s apparent that they belong together, or do they?

In story, Spinelli took to the stage on Karaoke night when he, Maxie, Cody (Josh Kelly) and Sasha (Sofia Mattsson) went out together.  When Spinelli sang, it featured a touching solo performance by Bradford Anderson, where Spinelli wears his heart on his sleeve for Maxie.

Maxie is all smiles watching Spinelli sing, and afterwards he walks towards her. The two talk about his living situation and how he would do anything for her. Maxie says she always knows she can count on him. She admits she loves listening to him sing to her, and she loves having him around. Spinelli says he considers her more than a friend. The two eventually share a kiss, but Maxie runs away.

The pick-up of the story happens on next week’s Tuesday, February 27th episode when in teasers, Maxie and Spinelli get closer.

Looking at the history of Spixie: they first got together from 2008-2010 when they were engaged. Then, in 2013 the duo had a one night stand. Next, they dated again in 2015, and flash-forward to 2024, and it looks like Maxie and Spinelli might be willing to try their romantic relationship one more time.
