25 November 10th, 2014 CONFIRMED: Brandon Barash Making A Return To General Hospital!


An ABC rep has confirmed to On-Air On-Soaps that Brandon Barash is returning to General Hospital in the role of Johnny Zacchara.  As to an airdate, “Mum’s the word” thus far from the network, although it is believed that Brandon will be back for a short story arc.

It would seem likely that since Johnny was sent off to Pentonville, and several Port Charles residents are seemingly headed for some time in the slammer for their crimes, the timing could be perfect for Johnny to mix it up with one, or a few of them, while in prison stripes.

There is also that continued rumor that Johnny’s appearance could be tied into to the “Fluke” storyline.  Barash previously played Johnny Zacchara from 2007 to 2012 in Port Charles.

So glad to get confirmation that Brandon’s bad boy Johnny Z. will be on-air in the near future?  Comment below!

  2. Queenie says:

    Let Brandon Barash (Johnny Zacchara) stay on GH for good. I miss Johnny he is such a good character.


    su0000 replied

    Luv johnny!!
    The GH cast has gotten better, I did not think that
    GH’s cast is overwhelming the best
    and now with Brandon back on screen WOW!!!



    rachie replied

    So glad to have him back I commented recently that the show could use him.


  3. su0000 says:

    Great! I’m gonna really like this..but-
    Brandon is only back for a short story arc … :(
    ………… I want to keep him !!!!

    (some may end up in the slammer, but for a very short time..
    GH needs the big players in stories not in jail/prison..
    It will be fun to see them locked up if only for a fleeting moment..

    ( looking forward to seeing Johnny Z …


  4. Lia says:

    I am literally dancing in my seat. Omg! This awesome news!


  5. tskyent says:

    Rock and Roll!! This is so great!!


  6. aria says:

    yes, glad he’s coming back even if its for a short story arc, i bet he’ll interact with Sonny.


  7. Nick D. says:

    This is the BEST news in a long time (and there has been a lot of good news for GH so that is saying something).

    Johnny has been SORELY MISSED. CAN’T WAIT to see him back on screen. Nobody fires up his scenes like Brandon Barash playing Johnny Zacchara!



    Patrick replied

    “… Nobody fires up his scenes like… ”



  8. Roxanne says:

    Its about damn time!!!! Cannot wait for the festivities :)


  9. Marisa says:

    Yes!!! Love Johnny. I also miss his crazy father or grandfather Anthony!!


  10. Patrick says:

    they need to contract this guy

    if he wants one

    sigh! would he go back to Carly ?

    Carly has had no role…. for what seems like eon
    Johnny and Jax were the only two who had fire

    if GH wants to resuscitate revive redeem Carly… this may be he only way to do it

    Brandon Barash is a surefire HIT


  11. vinman says:

    Go Johnny Z!


  12. JLH says:

    I agree–Johnny’s a great character. An added plus: Brandon’s super hot!


  13. Timmm says:

    Cannot wait for Johnny Z to antagonize Sonny boy in prison! Speaking of the Z’s. I heard maybe Anthony was Fluke? Good call but I was hoping Bruce Weitz would come back as Anthony’s twin. Love it when Anthony says LOO LOO’s name!


  14. Elite Advisors says:

    LOVING the news! And a possible return for Anthony Z would be terrific…I loved his quirkiness! But I still think FLUKE is really the BALKAN as he acts just like him…. Tony G portrays this Fluke character with his bottom lip jetted out…..which is exactly what the Balkan character used to do…. I may be spelling his name wrong…I don’t know…. but Jerry worked for him as well!


  15. Jimmy says:

    Johnny is a great character and Brandon Barash is a fantastic actor. I’m really looking forward to seeing him again. I really hope this short term return can lead to a long term stay, maybe even a contract in the future again? Yes, GH has a lot of characters on it right now, but Johnny is sorely missed and would be a great (re)addition!


  16. Reagan says:

    Love Brandon Barash and have been hoping that YR or Days would snatch him up. A short stay is better than nothing! (If they do it right, of course) Still think he would have made a great Billy on YR or as Teresa’s brother Andrew on Days.


    Patrick replied

    that would be amazing… and still a possibility !

    “…or as Teresa’s brother Andrew on Days. ”


    The Donovan reign supreme in Salem…. with Gramma Caroline

    Shane, Kimberly, Eve, Brandon Barash as nuAndrew, and Theresa


  17. Christy says:

    Sonny’s cell mate? oh, that could be a whole new soap! bwahahahahahaha


  18. Helene says:

    Love Johnny Z! Thrilled he’s coming back, wish he was on contract…we’ll see! You never know what may happen. Hope his character will be so good they will bring him back for good.


  19. kaffen says:

    Johnny will great for Maxie or Rosliek


  20. christa Lyon says:

    Johnny is better with Maxie they have history and comstrey together they both deserve the best and great so my vote is Johnny is great with Maxie
