Two major fan favorites are on their way back for visits on General Hospital.  Recurring stars Wally Kurth (Ned) and Bradford Anderson (Spinelli) are back this fall on the ABC soap opera.

Anderson will appear on the Friday, September 2nd episode, but it’s unclear if it will be for a story arc, or not.

Kurth, who also plays Justin Kiriakis on Days of our Lives, reveals he will be back next month as well in Port Charles.

Wally told SOD: “I’m excited that I get to do both shows. I love being able to do both characters, Ned and Justin.”

So, what stories will Ned and Spinelli find themselves enmeshed in Port Charles? Share your theories in the comment section below!

Spin tells Maxi that Ellie left him just as Maxi and Nate split up over Claudette and she invites Spin and their baby to move in with her-Spin is unaware Ellie left him because she is dieing but Spin finds out and miracle Dr. Finn saves the Trout…Ned is there to help Tracy and Sab locate the latter’s missing baby…at the same time whatshisface found a baby for mommy-wanna-be Nina seemingly unaware its Sabs missing child-ok, made it up-lol

Love Wally Kurth and his Ned. I wish GH would write for him and keep him around. He’s a great actor and Ned and his alter ego, Eddie Maine, are always good.

Hopefully Spinelli will save our Maxie from this tragic story and by tragic, I mean sucky, stupid & boring! Please can Nathan, Claudette and that drip Griffin!

For sure, Please! He’s a smart guy, certainly he can think of something to get those three on the road out of town! I’d even welcome a time machine storyline to send them (permanently) back or forward in time. The gentleman that portrays Nathan has such weak acting skills that a dramatic storyline with him in the center of it was doomed from the start.

Lol! these pretty faces Griffin & Nathan are about as exciting as a piece of log. Poor Kirsten stuck in the middle. They need to cut their losses with this group and get Bradford Anderson back permanently!

I don’t know much about either character….well, just the basics.
But, doesn’t Spinelli’s appearance always relate to some kind of issue involving Maxie, Jason/Sam or Sonny?
Three choices: look into the Claudette/Nathan/Griffin triangle; best man for Jason?; or investigating Nelle—as per Sonny’s orders.
Ned? Visits his mother? Too obvious.

Cee, dont scratch your head too hard, Spinelli is a goof that should have come and gone like Natalie on Y&R and Ned is awesome but they roll him in and out like Scorpio and leave us wanting more. Its stunt casting, is all!

Hi, Timmmy,
Thanks for the heads up. I don’t mind seeing Spinelli….he’s nerdy, but strangely funny. I can tolerate him. Actually, I like him. And, I like him with Maxie. But, you know more than I….as far as stunt casting.
So, I will follow your lead and not belabor his ‘homecoming’.
Ned is just a pleasant character to me. Nothing less, nothing more.

Spinelli has been written less hyper, the character has calmed down.
I Like Spin, he is different, and that is a good thing..

A lot of us LOVE Spinelli CeeCee and he was a very central character for years. I think he came to Port Charles ten years ago. He was always a computer genius/nerd…and arrived as a quirky character who we were all kinda amused by but not invested in and then bam! Many of us fell in love with this kid in-his-own- world! He was dragged into doing work for a criminal Alcazar (a really popular character too…played by Ted King who also played Tomas (Tea’s husband on OLTL). Anyway, Spinelli eventually tried to get away from the danger but was… Read more »

As for Ned, I think everyone loves Ned. He started out as a gorgeous “ladies man”. I remember filling you in way back when we first got friendly…he used to be a tennis instructor. He and Monica,,,many, many years ago, met and had an affair. They didn’t know who the other was a Quartermaine at the time. That was a good story…sigh…how I miss those Quartermaine days.nthere were so many of them and it was a great soap family…always funny and scandalous. Ned returned to the Q’s and instead of following in his grandfather (the patriarch of the Q’s) footsteps… Read more »

Yes, Rebecca. Thank you. I just got around reading my mail; after a much needed breather…..Vineyard time. At least the island is quiet, now!!!! Well, except for our passel of kids….nephews, nieces….sometimes I lose count, LOL. I think I have a better understanding of Spinelli…. thank you. I can identify with this guy….in his nerdy-kind- of-way. I was alays called a book worm and too old for my age….so, I can relate. I wish he could stay on….we need that kind of distraction here and there. Too many mundane stories going around in circles. But, as I always say….I am… Read more »

Vineyard time sounds good…and passels of kids do too! In a world full of negativity…innocence is still the epitome of joy. “Spinelli” was on contract for a long time; he chose to leave so it’s great that he makes these sporadic appearances. As for Wally Kurth, I’m catching a few of the remaining soaps (usually when an actor I like from another show heads over to it, etc) so I’ve only seen Wally once or twice in his other role. Lol; too weird. We KNOW it’s the same actor yet while obvious, it’s still amazing how we, as viewers, can… Read more »

I still say Wally needs to be back full time as Ned. Always liked that character. Also would like to see Spinelli around all the time too. That character is always fun to watch.

Yea!! Hope Wally stays for awhile with a good story.

I wish they had a real story for Spinelli this time too. He could work for the police department instead for thugs, maybe that way they could actually solve a crime.

hey Timmm..
Wally doesn’t seem to want a contract with either soap
”’Wally told SOD: “I’m excited that I get to do both shows. I love being able to do both characters, Ned and Justin.””’

Norther did Tristan, not until Y&R/CBS gave him a sweet deal he couldn’t walk away from..

Sometime the Vets do not want to be back in under contract.. They like ‘appearances’ it works out better for them..

nancy dillingham

I can’t believe that–especially the desparity in money. I really believe that Tristan Rogers wanted a contract with GH years ago–just went o Y & R because they did give him one–at that time.

Me too!
There is no way to recast all the Q’s and have them accepted.
At the least, RC, gave us Dillion an active Q ..
And Ned shows up every blue moon..

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Austin Reveals His True Identity

Leave it to many GH fans who guessed right as to just who Roger Howarth’s new character of Austin will turn out to be!  On Tuesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, we learned the last name of the character who is related to the Quartermaine’s.

For weeks, Austin has seemed to be fixated on Michael Corinthos (Chad Duell) and the Q’s and now with this cliffhanger of a reveal we know why.

At a key family business meeting at the Q’s, Scott (Kin Shriner) who now seems in cahoots with Austin for a piece of the Quartermaine pie, brings Austin to the gathering.

 

When Austin arrives, Brook Lynn (Amanda Setton) looks none-to-pleased!  She clearly knows the guy.  When Michael struts up to Austin asking who he is and what is he doing here … Austin introduced himself as Austin Gaitlin-Holt.  Michael and everyone else look a bit perplexed as we fade to black.

However, GH history buffs know that Jimmy Lee Holt was the son of Edward Quartermaine and his mistress Beatrice LeSuer.  Jimmy Lee did some pretty reprehensible things while he was in Port Charles.  When he left he married Charity Gaitlin.  Upon the death of Edward Q. back in 2012, Jimmy Lee was left out of his inheritance.  Therein must lie some of the story…. and now Roger Howarth fans eagerly await to see how this new doctor in town and Quartermaine turns out to be.  Will he be a bad boy, or a misunderstood good guy?  We shall see.

So, what did you think of Austin being revealed to be Austin Gaitlin-Holt? Share your thoughts in the comment section, and also cast your vote in our poll on Roger’s new character below.
