For one, Erik Valdez (aka General Hospital‘s former “Trey” Mitchell aka Joe Scully III) has landed the recurring role of crime lord Carlito Solano, TVLine has learned.

The privileged (read: spoiled) son of a powerful cartel leader, Carlito is a regular on the night club scene, where he’s always surrounded by an intimidating posse and a bevy of beautiful women. Just be wary of what this playboy considers a good time. Volatile and unpredictable, Carlito is described as a “Grade A psychopath” who is as likely to kill a friend as a stranger.

G-man Johnny Tuturro (played by Manny Montana), working undercover, will be the Graceland resident tasked with reeling Solano in, when Season 2 opens this summer.

Valdez’s TV credits also include episodes of Breaking In and 90210.

  • Since he played the son of a mobster on GH, it’s not a stretch to see him being a crime lord.

  • I really feel his character on GH was very poorly written which made him completely unlikable. That’s just my opinion of course but because of that I’m curious to see what he brings to Graceland.

  • I’m happy that Erik Valdez is joining Graceland.I think he got a bum rap on GH because the the problem there might have been the character of Trey and not the actor.He probably did the best he could with the material on GH that he was given but now he may have a chance to show what he’s capable of.

    • Also he played opposite Lindsey Morgan most of the time, and she was awful. His scenes with Kelly Sullivan were fantastic. I was disappointed but not surprised when they killed him off.

      • Lindsey Morgan was better than him and she got a post GH gig faster then him as well

  • Good, it will be nice to have Graceland back. I am guessing it will premiere for S2 in the summer. I enjoyed the first season. I don’t know this actor but he is nice looking for sure.

  • so with johnny taking on the “undercover with the crime boss” role this season i guess he will be getting more screen time which is good to hear.
