It’s hard to believe but it has been 18 years since soap superstar Jack Wagner has played super spy Frisco Jones on ABC’s General Hospital!  Well, all of that is about to change on Monday, when Jack brings Frisco home to Port Charles!

And in an exclusive teaser and preview of what is to come, Access Hollywood was on set with Wagner when he taped some of his key scenes with former real life wife and on-screen partner Kristina Wagner (Felicia)!

Wagner told Access Hollywood on coming home to GH:  “It is a bit weird, I’ll tell ya.  I think in life we can never anticipate where it’s going to take us.  So to be back here and working with Kristina (Felicia)my ex-wife who is just so beautiful and wonderful, and to have so many of the core characters back on the 80’s when it was General Hospital was huge, its been awesome!  I’m really happy and I am glad I came back. ”

Access Hollywood promises more on Monday with Jack; including the taping of some emotional scenes with Felicia and Frisco!  Now, watch the segment after the jump, and check out the retro clips of Frisco in the 80′s and some of your other all-time favorites!  Then let us know, are you excited about a Frisco and Felicia reunion?

    The man ia a great golfer therefore out in the sun a lot and he also has had a history with alcohol. That unkind people have talked about on twitter. Some men are not any different then women in the industry they get caught up with plastic surgery. Just one of those guys that plays hard but I still love him and will take him anytime over the no talent newbies.

    Wow….who says guys can’t be catty…meow! Here we are in what we thought were the death days of soaps when we wouldn’t have these shows to faithfully watch every day, some of you mystify me with your comments. GH is doing great…in fact probably helping Katie in some markets and Frank/Ron are bringing back favorite characters that the audience hasn’t seen in decades and all you can whine about is a Wagners face? I’m just astounded. News flash to Matthew and Joe, we ALL age. I’m sure it’s soooooooooooo much fun to comment behind a computer and one doesn’t see what YOU look like. It’s comments like these that just make us such an ageist society. One day you’ll be in the same situation if it’s not happening already. Can’t wait to hear those LOLz then Matthew, eh????

    hey ROBBYROB! Seems like your face work didnt go well either like Jack Wagner’s didn’t guess I struck a nerve… Pitty
    Maybe, JUST MAYBE if people DID just age garcefully instead of going for the scalpel or the botox then it wouldn’t BE such an ageist society. THEY are the ones that are feeding into it…NOT ME. And don’t you dare sit back and criticize my observations. They have nothing to do with who Frank and Ron are bringing back. Apples and oranges. Just because they gave JW a boat load of money to pop in for a small stint doesn’t mean we are all suppose to bow down. Maybe if Mr. Wagner STAYED with the show like Susan Lucci or Erika Slezak, instead of going off to pursue his wonderfully lame career, then maybe GH wouldn’t haven fallen prey to bad ratings. Get of the SOAP box Robbie…someone else needs the wood.

    Robbyrob replied

    So Sorry Joey…didn’t realize your little snippy comment about Wagner’s face was about him only staying for a short term gig. Hmmm….I should have thought that was your intention all along. Silly me indeed. So GHs bad ratings are solely from short term gigs?? Not the previous regime killing off beloved characters that HAVE stayed decades? Not the previous regime for making GH so dark & violent that viewers turned away. Nope, according to your inspired braintrust, its because certain actors dont stay on their soaps for decades. Wagner has a lame career as you say. Why be pissed at him when so many others do the same? Wagner has appeared on other soaps and garnered huge popularity. How do you know he’ll only be short term? Wasnt Finola Hughes not contract and slated for short term when she came back last year? Leslie Charleson has been on GH for decades…hasnt stopped her from getting plastic surgery. How do you know ABC gave Wagner a huge amount of money? Maybe he wanted to work with his ex-wife again on the very show that they met on….had a family on…and maybe just maybe WANT to celebrate its upcoming 50th Anniversary. So no one else can comment on your childish grade school comment….how dare I YOU say??? Someone sounds a tad uppity here. Sorry, I’ll get off my soap box, you obviously need more of the wood you mention for your head.

    Matthew Bishop replied

    LOLZ @Robbyrob. First of all I’m 30 so I highly doubt I look like I have aging issues at this point. On the contrary I’ve been told I have a baby face and people can’t believe I’m even 21 at the liquor store half of the time. And I resent your implication that I’m not an enormous fan of Jack Wagner/Frisco. If you had read my own personal comment further down and not just my reply to Joe’s matter-of-fact observation maybe you would have realized that I’m thrilled he’s back. This doesn’t mean I don’t resent Jackie Zeman who I adore for ruining her face so now they don’t even want to display it on television and we don’t get to see Bobbie anymore. I also don’t understand why Leslie Charleson decided she wasn’t a fan of being able to blink and obviously has to sleep with her eyes open. So LOLZ to the facts.

    I am so excited about Jack Wagner (Frisco) returning, and yes, I would love for Frisco&Felicia to reunite, as much as I love Mac. There is no couple on GH that has ever been as magical as those two were for me. I hope Jack will get a chance to sing ..

    I was young but I remember when he was abducted then came back from the ‘dead’ after being held captive and Felicia had moved on with Colton Shore. One of my earliest GH memories. When I think of my childhood, Frisco and Felicia always come to mind.

    Die Hard General fan since the days of Scottie, Luke and Laura and I’m usually good at guessing what’s next but this threw me for a loop even with all the previous cast returning…I am very glad about Genie Francis’ return but I have mixed emotions about Jack Wagner. Mac deserves some happiness and not Frisco’s second’s. The story lines on General keep coming and that keeps me watching…welcome back Frisco.
