30 November 10th, 2014 Brandon Barash On His Way Back To General Hospital?

Over the weekend, rumors escalated via a report from Daytime Confidential that none other than fan favorite, Brandon Barash is set for a return to General Hospital as Johnny Zacchara for a short story arc!

With Port Charles riddled with crime, and the reveal to D.A Baldwin (Kin Shriner) and police commissioner Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) that Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) killed AJ Quartermaine, could Sonny end up behind bars and at Pentonville alongside his arch enemy Johnny Z.?

That would seem to be intriguing, since Connie (formerly played by Kelly Sullivan) set-up Sonny to walk in on her and Johnny which inflamed the already bitter rivalry!  Or, could Johnny’s short story arc have to do with just who is “Fluke”?

Barash is married to GH star Kirsten Storms (Maxie) and the duo share a baby girl together, Harper.

Would you like to see Johnny Zacchara back on the canvas? If so,  how do you think he will be brought into the story? Comment below!

    STILL think Fluke is Anthony Zacchara, so this would fit in nicely, hmmmmm?

    It would be awesome to have Brandon Barash /Johnny back!!!
    I know he wouldn’t resign back on but it would be fun to see him again..
    IF Sonny gets incarcerated, then Maurice is going on vacation..
    But– he would be gone for a short while, Sonny/Maurice is not leaving GH, so no problem.. He will be set free..
    Brandon Barash will have a good time, I’d bet..
    I really like how FV&RC brings in missed vets… its always fun!

    I agree, bring him back and pair him up with his real life lady love, Kristin Storms.
    Then hand this talented man some decent material.
    Make him play “Moonlight Sonata” on the piano while he dreamily stares off into space trying to chase those demons away.
    I loved Johnny, the tormented piano player.

    Not only would I like to see him return, NO ONE I know ever wanted him gone. I have literally never seen a bad word said about Brandon, and the only thing bad I have read about Johnny Zacchara is that the WRITERS destroyed his character, and we were all pretty upset about it.

    I’m thrilled he’s returning, but disappointed it’s only for a short arc. I hope they’ll see the error of their ways and bring him back – to stay!

    Brando, he is daddy and I assume wanted out of the soaps..
    I’m sure RC and FV would love to have Brandon back, thing is-
    he might not want to come back ..

    Some believe it is the producers who let sonso go, when it was the actor who wanted out and doesn’t want to return, outside of an appearance stay..

    I’d love it Brandon wanted to return but doubt it :( ”never say never”!

    If he does come back long term or short term, that would be great..The character of Johnny was such a tortured soul and Brandon Barash played him to the hilt…This great talent will always be welcome back!!!

    You’re right, Omar. Johnny was so torn from the beginning over his mom’s life and death, his father’s cold hand and “profession”…yet he tended to Anthony and his “garden.” He had that final showdown with his father which was full of conflict…and then his despair/guilt over being responsible for Starr’s boyfriend and daughter’s death..Great story lines…great acting. Looking forward to his return; just anticipating hating to see him go again.

    Yes bring Johnny Back! Maybe have him and Sonny break out of prison together! That would be a very exciting story line! The both of them previously enemies working together to escape prison! OR The Governor is visiting the prison. While he is there a full blown riot occurs and the prison is taken over by the prisoners! They take the Governor hostageThey are threatening to kill the Governor and all of the guards unless they are given money and transportation out of prison. Sonny and Johnny work together to overthrow the prisoners in charge and get the others to listen to them and give up and let the Governor and guards go. Because of their bravery and saving the Governor and Guatds lives Both Sonny And Johnny get pardoned for their crimes.

    That is wonderful news, I love Brandon he is a terrific actor. Brandon is very hot, yum yum eye candy lol. On the weekend celebrity dirty laundry on line said, Brandon will be back for a short term arc storyline. I want Brandon back on contract, I missed him so much. Maybe Carly and Johnny can get back together, I would love that so much.

    This show is dumb.Johnny is in jail for killing ColeandHope who are not characters and haven’t ever been. he killed a man who killed a lot of people and should have gotten a medal. His father..BB was one of the actors on the show I enjoyed watching. will his arc be in jail with Sonny. can johnny please shank Sonny in the prison yard.?please !.Love to see him back with Olivia. keep him and dump sonny.

    LOL, Janet. It’d be a crime to hit and run anyone…even if the characters were never onscreen. Johnny killing Sonny’s not going to happen…but I think it’ll be interesting to see if these two clash or bond in the clink!

    Brandon Barash is a fantastic actor and Johnny has been sorely missed on GH! I really hope this will lead into Brandon returning full time because I love the character. If GH can bring people back from the dead and find loopholes for so many characters to get out of their crimes, they can find a way to bring Johnny back permanently!

    In terms of story, I don’t think his return will have to do with the Fluke reveal. I think either Sonny or Carly or whoever ends up in jail will see him. Hopefully it’s Sonny so that Johnny can rub his crimes in his face.

    Rebecca its not a crime to hit and run someone who never was PP made sure these characters plus Starr and Todd were never here. They owned them and they took them back. If they were ever there don’t you think the actress who looks like Starr would at least mention them. You cannot kill someone who never was. Johnny killed his father in self defense. The man was a murderering pig. he could be funny but Johnny being in jail for coleandhope is stupid.

    Janet…all the characters from OLTL who came as their characters, Starr, Todd and John were there. It is acknowledged that they were there…and that they all left. GH didn’t pretend that those characters never existed…they just had to get rid of them…so they kept the actors, gave them all new names/identities…and we, the fans, had to REALLY suspend our disbelief and ignore the fact that they were all carbon copies of the OLTL three. Which we did. After a while we just accepted that these three are new characters. No reference is made (at least not serioiusly) to their resemblance to Starr, Godd and John, because we’re not supposed to really see that. It’s no different than seeing an actor go from on show to another; just believe in who they’re playing at the moment.

    Thus, Johnny really did hit and run…killing Cole and Hope. Kiki never mentions them because she’s not Starr.

    correction: seriously

    go from “one” not on

    believing…not just believe

    and finally…Todd, not Godd!
