Sneak Attack! Jack Wagner Returns to General Hospital as Frisco Jones

General Hospital Frisco ReturnsMake me believe it — Jack Wagner is reprising his role as General Hospital rocker-turned-adventurer-turned-spy-turned-cop Andrew “Frisco” Jones. And you won’t have to wait long to see him back on your screen.

As first reported by TV Guide Magazine‘s Michael Logan, Wagner has already covertly begun taping scenes as Frisco, whom he first played in the mid- to late 1980s, then reprised for a stretch in ’94/’95 (when the character’s daughter Maxie received a heart transplant from his brother Tony’s little girl B.J. All together now: Sob).

But is he really returning as Frisco or is it Domino in a rubber mask?! I kid. All I need…. now is to track down his first airdate.

Wagner is but the latest GH blast from the past to sign on for an encore as ABC’s sole surviving daytime sudser turns 50 this spring. In recent weeks, Genie Francis (who plays Laura) and Kin Shriner (Scotty) have booked returns, while Lynn Herring recently returned as Lucy and Jon Lindstrom is due back soon as Kevin.

Wagner’s other TV roles include the original Melrose Place, a nine-year run as The Bold and the Beautiful’s Nick, a spin on Dancing With the Stars and recent guest spots on shows such as Hot in Cleveland and Castle.

Does this news give anyone else “Island Fever”? Is the weatherman saying it’s gonna get hot in Port Charles? And does Mac, who recently reconnected with Felicia, always get the short end of the stick or what?

    • Yep – now bring back Felicia and I will start watching again! (I know they were married and divorced so this is somewhat unlikely, but a girl can dream!)

    • His boyish looks are clearly a result of botox. I think it was required on the set of “Bold and the Beautiful.”

    • It’s rumored she’s on the list of returns but they did such a horrible job writing Brenda last time she was back it’s hard to imagine having her return.

      • They really did. The whole Balkan storyline sucked. They ruined the S&B reunion I had waited years for.

    • How many times can she make a comeback. She tried it and I guess it didn’t work.

    • Me too. I watched both Frisco,and Felicia and Mac and Felicia back in the day and I’m a much bigger fan of Mac and Felicia.

      Comment by Jules – January 22, 2013 05:24 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Mac and Felicia are much better. Hope they don’t have Felicia leave with Frisco, again. Would so suck.

  • OMG! I totally owned his album, cassette tape. I haven’t watched GH in years, but I may have return to it. It can be prep work for my high school reuni… soooooo olllld.

    • still own the cassettes….

  • Sure, this is great news for GH, but Jack Wagner should not have been let go at B&B last year. He really brought a great deal to the show, and since he (and the rest of the Jackie M crew have vanished with no explanation) the show hasn’t been the same. That might also be because of the never-ending overflow of Leffy/Lope. Regardless, it’ll be great to see him back on GH!

  • Woohoo, haven’t seen Jack in so long! Hope he comes back as Frisco – there is nothing worse than a deadbeat dad, which is what I have dealt with for 17 years now – step up and do the right thing!!

  • It is about time!! We we have Friscoand Felica, Anna, AJ, Laura and Duke. Robert needs to recoup and come back then we can say the gangs all here. Please GH write good plot lines and do these characters justice. Don’t let them go and please give them more air time!!!

  • Sooooooooo glad this man is back on this soap, this is where he belongs. And as far as everyone that wants Felicia and Mac to stay together instead of bringing back frisco and Felicia together obviously were not true G H fans…..those two were the soap!!!!!!!

    • Love comments like this. “Either you like what I like, or you aren’t fans of the show.”

      GH is an ensemble, always has been. Fans rooting for different characters, pairings and stories is what make it interesting.

      Being a true GH fan from the 70s, I have seen my share of couples. Haven’t liked them all, haven’t hated them all. The old saying is an old saying for a reason: “To each their own.”

  • I love Frisco and Felicia and hope that they can both stay on the show awhile!

  • Jack wagner is still the handsomest, most charismatic actor in America..and i hope he reunites with Kristina. On Gh and in real life. She looks terrific for her age…her role should be expanded.

  • I have never liked him outside of the realm of Frisco and Felicia. He just seems different to me. Being paired with Kristina Wagner as Frisco and Felicia made him easier to watch and like. Never cared for him on other soaps or those horrid movies of the week and Lifetime movies he did. Always thought those movies made him look cheap.

  • Guys, we’re grown ups now, you don’t want to defeat the purpose of
    building muscle, it’s important to lose the weight. dieting healthy might not be perfect, sometime this year. I found the cookbook easy dieting healthy to use with clear directions and simple recipes. Sometimes it’s the fear of what happens if you
    go offthe diet just for a friend’s birthday dinner? Of low-fat milk or fruit juice, a Forever Lite shake can be a door instead of a snack.
