Jack Wagner Returns To 'General Hospital' And More Casting News

"General Hospital" favorite Jack Wagner is coming back to the ABC soap, according to TV Guide.

The beloved soap star, who played Frisco Jones from 1983 to 1995, is reportedly already filming scenes, and is among a number of fan-favorite alums who are scheduled to return to celebrate the sudser's 50th anniversary. TV Guide also reports that Antonio Sabato, Jr., who played Jagger Cates, has already met with producers to discuss his own involvement in the milestone event.

Since starring on "GH," Wagner has made appearances on "Melrose Place," "The Bold and the Beautiful" and more recently, ABC's "Castle."

It's not all good news for "General Hospital," though, as some actors who joined the series after the broadcast end of "One Life To Live" may have to rejoin "OLTL" as it launches online, as part of a deal between Prospect Park and ABC.
