Fans have less than two weeks to wait for the return on-air of fan favorite Jack Wagner in his iconic role as Frisco Jones on General Hospital!  After secretly taping a report handful of episodes (however this could turn out to be scenes spread out over several months leading up to GH’s big 5oth Anniversary in April) Wagner was back on the GH set around January 11th.

Now according to Access Hollywood, Wagner’s first appearance on his return to the ABC soap is slated for the Monday, February 4th episode! And as it turns out that is just one week before Genie Francis return to the show in her iconic role of Laura Spencer on Monday, February 11th.

Kristina Wagner, who plays Felicia Jones Scorpio, Frisco’s ex, and Wagner’s ex in real life returned to the soap last year and will obviously be key in scenes with Jack on his return to Port Charles!

Access Hollywood also noted, “Bringing Jack and Genie back will only help make General Hospital’s 50th anniversary, on April 1, that much bigger of an affair. (Genie’s return date is exactly 50 days before the 50th anniversary.)”

So soapers, are you excited that Frisco is coming home shortly to your television screens? Let us know!

wouldn’t that be INTERESTING?

i think so…. why not? two characters of old… that we’re comfortable with…

Mac… the good guy/former police commissioner… all that he’s done for Robin and Maxie…. raised two “daughters’ that aren’t even his… is he or isn’t he with Alexis and possibly Anna…

i watch Mac and Felicia commisserating over Maxie… and it’s heart pulsating… they garner more than enough interest to give them story…

geez! salute to old skool…. they may not have the shootz pa ???? whatever triggers the fans?

it’d melt my heart… to see something between these two unfold….

perhaps… Frisco will bring that….

wait till Mac and Felicia find out they’re going to be grandparents…

———————

they may not be high end or sought after… but… given the right story… i think it’d be cute and gut wrenching…

i’ve had a coupla glasses of wine…

can anyone imagine any of this happening under the previous regime? I can’t. it just shows how important it is for the right people to run a show. All this magic under JFP and BG would never have happened so thanks to the univeverse for FV and RC. As they say, timing is everything!

I’m very excited for Jack, Genie and all the folks who have come back or are coming back!! Even if it’s for a short period, the nod to the past as GH gets ready to celebrate their 50th Anniversary is fantastic! The revival of the Nurses Ball during this time is also such beautiful special part of the magic that #Cartini has crafted over the last year.

Fans need to focus on the good and get off of the “mean, rude, nit-pick, negative” train when it comes to soaps in general. They are soaps, they are drama. People come and go, leave of their own will, get fired, rolls are re-cast etc. No EP or Head Writer is going to please everyone. #GH is WAY better now than it was before #Cartini took over and I would like to thank Frank & Ron….. THANK YOU!!!

I remember been in school and writing my name Frisco Jones. Sounds nuts but i have always been a big fan of Jack Wagner. I am very happy that he is coming back home well he belongs.

I’d give my left hand to see Frisco, Felicia, Anna, Duke, Robert and Sean all back on my screen at the same time. And I’m left handed!

Frisco and felicia have to end up together again. And frisco never stole and can’t steal her away (from mac). You can’t steal someone that belongs with you. 🙂
That being said no one ever had more chemistry with Jack W. then Kristina had… and visa versa. F&F forever! I’m so exited he’s back !!

Seeking all the past characters coming back from my youth, and the ‘glory’ days of GH has made me tune back into GH. Like seeing the actors/characters come back. Feels familiar , nostalgic, and like old home. Also, the 2:00 timing of the show works better . While I am at the gym, I watch Days then switch to GH. Hope they will bring romance and intrigue for the return of these characters.

Oops, meant to say seeing all the past characters. Sorry for typos, I am typing this while I am in bed on my iPad! 🙂

I’m very excited. I just hope they don’t put them in good storylines, and then have them disappear before they’re over. Like the Duke/Anna fiasco.

Ces

I agree about the Duke/Anna thing. As much as I loved Faison on the show .. I think it really screwed up an awesome reunion between Duke & Anna. We saw a little hope of chemistry on the last episode but GH needs to somehow get that oomph between them again. Love Ian Buchanan!

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.

TONIGHT: GH’s Maurice Benard As John Gotti In Lifetime’s ‘Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter’

Fans and colleagues of Maurice Benard (Sonny Corinthos) have been eagerly waiting to see the General Hospital star take on the role of famous mobster, John Gotti. Well, tonight (February 9th) is the night!  Make sure to watch the Daytime Emmy-winner in Victoria Gotti: My Father’s Daughter on Lifetime at 8pmEST/7CST.

In the log lines for the movie. it relates: “Executive produced by Victoria Gotti herself, the movie takes us deep into the world of what it was really like to grow up as the daughter of mob boss John Gotti, revealing the glamour, glitz and unique hardships of her world.  Sharing never-before-revealed stories about her life, Victoria (Chelsea Frei) tells of a sensitive child growing up with a beloved father (Maurice Benard) she worried about constantly; the tragedy of her younger brother’s death; and her turbulent romance, forbidden by her father, with the man who later became her husband.  Victoria had a front-row seat to a life the world became fascinated with, all while trying to reconcile the loving father she adored with a man the outside world was determined to bring down. . The film is based on Gotti’s book This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti.  Victoria Gotti will appear on camera narrating.

Benard spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth about taking on the role and wanting to get the performance just right, where he expressed: “That’s up to the audience to decide.  I played him like a real-life guy who’s loyal to his people and loves his family — and that’s kind of what the story is about. It’s through Victoria’s eyes and told with complete compassion.”

As to how playing Gotti compared to his role as Port Charles’ loveable mobster, Sonny Corinthos, Maurice added: “When I was shooting the role, I didn’t really know how different it was from Sonny. But my last day, I wrapped at about 1 in the morning in Canada, flew back and went straight to work as Sonny. I remember shooting the scene and thinking, ‘Wow, Sonny’s in about second gear, Gotti’s in about fourth or fifth gear!’ It’s two different energies.”

Check out the promo for tonight’s Lifetime Movie starring Maurice as John Gotti below, and the let us know if you will be watching, and if you caught it, what you thought of Maurice’s performance, and the movie via the comment section below.
