26 March 27th, 2012 DWTS Jack Wagner, “I am actually under contract to ABC, so if GH wants to call, they can!”


Last night on season 14 of Dancing with the Stars, the former star of General Hospital, The Bold and the Beautiful and Melrose Place, Jack Wagner danced his heart out in the second week of the ballroom dance competition.  But, is it good enough to keep him from getting the boot on tonight’s Results Show?  The judges seemed to think so, although they gave a few tips to Wagner to not over-dance, since he is such an engaging performer to watch.

Now, as to the question that all of soapland is wondering, if Jack is coming on to reprise his role as Frisco Jones on General Hospital?  Wagner told ABC Soaps in Depth,  “I’m prohibited from doing anything but dancing with Anna Trebunskaya (his DWTS dance partner)  right now at all.  Except maybe for going to the grocery store and feeding my kids!” No Port Charles updates. I’m actually under contract to ABC so if General Hospital wants to call then they can call.”

Watch Wagner’s dance after the jump from last night’s competition on Dancing with the Stars, and then let us know if you think GH exec, Frank Valentini should call Jack and try to negotiate tobring him on to the show when DWTS has concluded!

    Yes! Bring back Jack Wagner! They are bringing everyone else back, but we all know the fans want FRISCO back! They need to make him an offer he can’t refuse!


  2. Susan says:

    I wish Frisco would come back and help save Robin, which in turn could help save Maxie.

    That would be so cool.


  3. Brian says:

    Please get Frisco back on GH!


  4. kdmoma says:

    I would absolutely love for Jack Wagner to return to GH as Frisco Jones. Frisco and Felicia are my all time favorite GH couple and always bring excitement and interest to the show. GH has improved so much and now they have the opportunity to keep that going by bringing Jack back.

    I agree with you. It would be a travesty to get this close to something that even 3 months ago would have been unthinkable and let it pass by. It’s the right time for GH and Jack to come to an agreement and get this going. It’s not like anything in this genre is a given anymore, so I think time is of the essence.


  5. Sandy says:

    “All I Need” is a little Frisco Jones!!!! Love that character, and Jack too!!!!!


  6. Christy says:

    sounds like he can not do anything but dancing with the stars at the moment… then afterwards they can ask him.


  7. ricardo says:

    jack wagner need to stay for a while on dancing with the stars. i really love his dancing. if jack wagner does come back to general hospital. please let it be full time on contract. no short term it wont work. tristan rogers comeback was so lame and boring.


  8. Michael S. says:

    Yes now is the perfect time to bring Frisco back. Cross your fingers!


  9. Gretchen says:

    YES! A thousand times, YES! We want our FRISCO back home, where he belongs!


  10. Michele says:

    YES, Bring back Jack!! I want my Frisco back where he belongs. Jack’s Frisco is where it all began for a huge number of us Jack Fans. It’s time to come full circle!


  11. Jeffrey says:

    We want Frisco’s Back in action and save Robin’s life from wherever the hell is it!!


  12. Chantal says:

    He is clearly open to it! NOW IS THE TIME TO BRING FRISCO BACK!!!

    Supposedly they offered him a short stint like his ex-wife he wanted a contract they did not offer it, everybody they do not have the money to give these guys a contract MB,SB,TG etc cost a lot and how does Frisco fit in anymore? Mac has been Maxie’s father forever. Soaps are a dying breed RC &FV are doing everything possible to save it but they are working on tight budgets etc. maybe it is because I have owned a business for so long the economy is suffering you do what you have to do they are not going to waste a large contract on someone who does not fit on the canvas anymore. I like Jack Wagner but you can not turn the soap backwards Brad Bell released him for one reason could not afford him and he quit writing story for him long time ago.


    Jack replied

    Interesting. Do you have a source regarding JW wanting a full time contract? JW mentioned in an interview (on Access Hollywood) that he rejected GH offer due to his heavy schedule (it wasn’t his exact words, but something like that).


  15. paula says:

    I’ll add my voice to the chorus of Bring Back Jack!


  16. Marcia says:

    YES- Please bring Jack back to GH ,& wishing Jack good luck with Dancing with the Stars!!


  17. Laurie says:

    I would love to see Jack Wagner back on GH as Frisco. Please give him a call to join GH.


  18. Caprice says:

    Definitely, this would be a great time for Frisco and Felicia to both come back!


  19. mike says:

    oh hell yes bring frisco back to gh!


  20. Kris Mayeda says:

    Hell yes, get Frisco back on GH!!! My all time favorite character…


  21. Micki Jo Morton says:

    Please bring back Frisco! He is an adventurous character.


  22. moss says:

    Bring back Jack, the producer’s are hording all the money. They money’s there I know for a fact. They need to pay people for their work. Rich just keep getting richer

    general hospital is on a budget abc/disney.doesnt want them going over the costs they were given,the rat channel would rather put there money behind there precious prime time soaps then keep the classic soaps that have been on for close to 50 years.They canceled all my children and one life to live so they can line there pockets with more cash ,Your right they are getting richer while our soaps are getting poorer ,So keeping all these characters it wont happen unless the rat channel Has a change of heart and I dont think that will happen anytime soon.Maybe after jack is done dancing with the stars ,which by the way is going down in the ratings this week they did.He can show up in port charles.
