Another return.

Rick Springfield will be joining all of the other former residents of Port Charles who are heading back to town for this year's anniversary. People Magazine has confirmed that the actor, rocker and author will be back for a short run in April.

For this return, Springfield won't be coming alone. His son, Liam Springthorpe, will also be joining the cast for a stint as an undercover cop.

Springfield played Dr. Noah Drake from 1981 until 1983 and from 2005 until 2008. He made his last appearance as the character in March 2012.
