Forget The Sopranos; the new cable hit General Hospital appears to be aping is The Walking Dead! TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan is reporting Chris Robinson is returning as Dr. Rick Webber, just in time for the sudser's 50th Anniversary.
Fans will recall Rick died in 2002, with his stepdaughter Laura (Genie Francis) believing she'd done the deed. As it turned out, it was ex-hubby Scotty (Kin Shriner) who ended the life of the man Monica (Leslie Charleson) and Lesley (Denise Alexander) spent the late 70's and early 80's fighting over. According to Robinson:
I could never have predicted I'd be rejoining the group but I guess anything is possible on a soap, even when you've been dead 10 years!

What's going to happen at this year's Nurses Ball on General Hospital? Don't ask Jane Elliot. The scene stealer spoke with AccessHollywood.com to discuss ABC's lone soap's 50th anniversary and what fans can expect. Warning, La Elliot seriously doesn't have much spoiler tea, because Frank Valentini has scoopage on LOCK!
Access: How exciting is the birthday stuff, the storylines and the Nurses’ Ball? What can you tease about that?
Jane: I can’t because it’s so hush-hush. I mean, I know that there [are] probably a dozen surprises of people coming back and I don’t know what they are because Frank [Valentini, ‘GH’s’ executive producer] has coded everybody’s name… If you call the call line, it’s the code name that’s getting called, so you literally don’t know who that person is until you’re standing on stage acting with them. One of the things that I like most about [Frank] is he believes in surprising the audience, he believes in not tipping your hand beforehand because it doesn’t give you a reason to tune back in… Frank does not want people to know what’s going to happen. He wants people to be surprised and there are some fabulous surprises coming. READ MORE

Yeah, I’ve got a bunch of films in the can. There’s a film called Unbroken. There’s a film that I made in Wales called Dead of Nite, which is making its Australian debut in April and I’m part of that. I’m currently doing day work on and when I say day work, I just mean I consider it my day job. I’m working on The Young and the Restless that just celebrated its 40th anniversary. They came to me with a character that I just couldn’t refuse. The difference in working in the soap world, you have to come totally prepared and you’re there and you basically have one take. I look at that as a challenge and my character is really a unique one. I play a prisoner who’s falsely accused of murdering his wife. I’ve done 4 episodes so far and I’m going to do at least 20. So that’s what I’m doing right now, I just worked yesterday. It’s a whole new demographic, I have my reasons for everything that I do. READ MORE
