As first reported by Daytime Confidential, Brandon Barash will be returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL as Johnny! A rep for the soap has confirmed his appearance, but with no details. But it would seem to be a short arc, so it's more likely someone will be visiting Johnny in Pentonville instead of the mobster being released from prison!
We're also hearing that Marc Anthony Samuel (Felix), John J. York (Mac) and Kelly Thiebaud (Britt) are being dropped to recurring status with the show. This isn't terribly surprising, as GH does have a lot of contract players more than it can find time for on-screen. However, there is additional buzz that says that Thiebaud is actually on her way out of Port Charles permanently. We'll keep you up to date on any new information as we get it! Stay tuned!
