“Oh boy — General Hospital, here we come,” he continues. “I guess they share [studio space] with Grey’s Anatomy. Isn’t that nice?”

While there’s been no official word as to whom the Daytime Emmy winner will be playing, Soap Opera Digest reports that he’ll be making a guest appearance in mid-March as Zander Smith, the ill-fated father of Elizabeth’s son, Cameron. Right on cue, the teen’s portrayer, William Lipton, called his on-screen pop a “legend.”

Odds are that Brannon will be appearing as a vision (whether ghostly or otherwise) to Liz or Cameron, who are grappling with the very real possibility that her husband and his stepfather, Franco, might once again be prompted by his brain tumor to give in to homicidal tendencies.

Since leaving the soap in 2004, Brannon has appeared on series such as Cold Case and Friday Night Lights, and begun a career as a voiceover artist on programs like The Cleveland Show and American Dad!
