In this new interview with Access Hollywood, Rick related as to what he will be doing on-air: “I haven’t seen a script. I have no idea if I’m, Eli Love or I’m Noah Drake, or, I’m Rick Springfield. I have no idea what I’m gonna be this time, but I’m open‘cause the 50th, I will do whatever you guys want.”
Rick said he does expect to perform at the upcoming Nurse’s Ball, the big “GH” charity event that the character Sabrina Santiago is reviving.
As for some Liam’s first foray into daytime, he admitted he never watched his father back in the day on GH, “I did not, but it’s been really great. I’ve had a really pleasant time here and everything is, so far, going very smoothly. It’s been very exciting to kind of branch out and start doing some television!”
