John Stamos Visits His Old Stomping Grounds At General Hospital

Photo Credit: JPI Studios

Social media was abuzz yesterday when photos surfaced on Twitter of none other than John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish), who got his early career start on General Hospital, apparently making a visit to the set of the iconic soap opera.

Stamos posted photos of himself, along with Steve Burton, Maurice Benard, Josh Swickard and Kin Shriner.  He stated: “The studs of ! Visit to my old stomping grounds – thanks for the hospitality boys.

This fueled rumors that perhaps, just perhaps, Stamos was making a guest star visit to the ABC daytime drama series, yet there is also the fact that John has been developing a series about fame and excess of daytime soaps in the 1980s based off his time as a young teen star on GH.

So, what do you think John visited GH for? What did you think of the pics by Jim Warren that appeared on social media?  Is Blackie coming back, or is John shooting or doing research for his series in development? Comment below.

I could take it either way….is there any chance he could come aboard for a brief stint and turn out to be Nelle’s biological father???

that’s interesting. I like that. but haven’t we already met her father ? didn’t he sell Nelle’s kidney for Joss? I wasn’t watching the show at the time so I only know through what I’ve pieced together….

Well, it would certainly be a ratings grabber but I think it’d be weird for a character from 30 years ago just to show up, say hey, and leave.. …. but if he was connected somehow, however, that would make sense. They’re mentioning Rick Webber a lot lately and, of course, the GH wiki reminded me that Blackie was supposed to be at the Nurses Ball a few years ago… but apparently had problems with Ron C (it seems everyone did, which is unfortunate) at the time so that didn’t happen.. guess we’ll see ….

@JimH love the idea… John Stamos is Nelle father. WOW

do you realise that would make him Carly’s adopted father?

No to Blackie Parrish being Nelle’s father. Remember the man is also Carly’s stepfather (?). I’ve often thought it would be cool to see Blackie back in PC after 30 years in jail. Could he have another connection to current story please. Short term works for me. I’d like to see the character turn his life around.

Probably just doing research. He and Shriner have been friends since they were on the show in the 80’s.

Sorry, but I wouldn’t be interested in seeing him back on GH as Blackie. He’s been gone too long and has no connection to current cast. Plus, they need to write for the talent they already have and we want to see more. He was probably just there for research.

I wasn’t old enough to watch the show when John Stamos was on in the early 80’s. I’ve watched a few YouTube clips, and wow, what a difference in storytelling-same for mid-80’s (when I began watching) and 90’s. Today, we are inundated with out of work “actors” who no one else would hire and terrible storylines.
