Later this fall, Port Charles will welcoming one more criminal into its borders. Actor will be transitioning from his years in New Jersey to become the latest gangster in the New York town.

Vincent will play Maximus Giambetti, a mobster whose two sons, Max and Milo, currently work for Sonny Corinthos. He comes into town mistakenly believing Max Jr. is the head of operations in the area. He will then, of course, find out that his boys are only bodyguards. (I envision some tasty scenes with Diane trying to defend her loyal beau.)

Daytime Dish: Port Charles Welcomes Back Tristan Rogers

Tristan RogersAs if Robin needed more stress during her pregnancy.

Last week, we told you that Antonio Sabato Jr. would be visiting SOAPnet’s General Hospital: Night Shift this summer. His character, Jagger Cates, would serve as a reminder to Robin about her first love, Stone. Now another figure from Dr. Scorpio’s past will be checking into Port Charles: her father, Robert Scorpio.

When Season 2 of Night Shift premieres, GH alum Tristan Rogers will find himself admitted for “a major health issue that’ll have him grappling with his mortality.” (That ‘health issue’ must be going around; I think Luke Spencer caught it last year.) His stay at General Hospital will not only allow Robin to bond with her dad/patient, it will finally give Robert a chance to address his daughter’s HIV-positive status.

Could Tristan Rogers’ appearance also mean a possible reunion between him and Finola Hughes (Anna Devane)? Let’s hope! kicks off sometime this July.

Daytime Dish: Antonio Sabato Jr. Returns to General Hospital

Antonio Sabato Jr.Since he recently jumped into the celebrities-as-talent pool, this announcement really doesn’t come as a big surprise. After 13 years away, Antonio Sabato Jr. is returning to the fictional city that made him famous: Port Charles.

Starting in July, the contender can be seen on General Hospital: Night Shift, SOAPnet’s spinoff of the ABC hit sudser. For the program’s second season, Antonio will once again play Jagger Cates, a role he originated back in the early 90’s. It was around that same time that both Sonny Corinthos and Miguel Morez (a long-haired Ricky Martin) entered the scene.

Those who can clearly remember watching GH during that time probably recall that Jagger Cates was Stone Cates’ brother. Stone Cates being, of course, Robin Scorpio’s first love. (He died after suffering from AIDS.) Jagger’s presence will surely affect an emotional Robin, who is now pregnant with Patrick Drake’s baby.
