(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Bruce Weitz returns to ABC’s “General Hospital” as Anthony Zacchara.

Nearly five months since he was sent to prison for his crimes, Anthony Zacchara is ready for a visit from one of his enemies on the Friday, July 10 episode of “GH” when actor Bruce Weitz reprises his role as the snarky villain.

Weitz’s appearance is expected to be for just this one episode, but don’t be surprised if he pops back in from time to time as his children’s lives continue to fall apart.

Weitz joined the cast of “GH” in the role of Anthony Zacchara in October 2007 only to leave in November 2007 after Anthony was carted off to the insane asylum. He later returned in January 2008, when Sarah Joy Brown made her grand re-entance to the drama series as Claudia Zacchara – Anthony’s daughter – thus cementing the Zacchara’s as Port Charles’ new premiere family.

Prior to joining “General Hospital,” Weitz appeared in such shows as “ER,” “Judging Amy” and “Sisters.” In 2008, he appeared in an episode of CBS’ “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation.” He can currently be seen as Larry in the straight-to-DVD comedy “imps*,” along-side 35 other Award winning Hollywood stars.

“General Hospital” airs Weekdays on ABC. Weeknights on SOAPnet. Check local listings.
