Billy Dee Williams is Back in Port Charles

Tuesday, April 14, 2009 8:33 PM ET | By Errol Lewis


(SoapOperaNetwork.com) —  Actor Billy Dee Williams joins the cast of ABC’s “General Hospital” later this year, reprising his role on “General Hospital: Night Shift” as Toussaint DuBois.

Last seen on the SOAPnet original series as a janitor at General Hospital, Toussaint will “return to Port Charles during a tour break with the Saints,” confirms a ‘GH’ spokesman.

“He’ll want to see Epiphany [Sonya Eddy] and other residents in town.”

In “Night Shift,” Billy Dee found himself working side-by-side with trained killer Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) and saving lives through crashes, births and other various life threatening matters. This will be the first time the actor has appeared on “GH.” He is one of the few “Night Shift” stars to transition over to the mother soap. Most recently Nazanin Boniadi (ex-Leyla Mir) from season one transitioned to the soap until her character was killed off in January 2009 after parts of General Hospital exploded.

Williams first airs in June.

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

    REVIEW: Breaking Down ‘All My Children’

    A character proclaims, "Pine Valley lost a part of its soul that night, but today the sun shines bright." That day in particular is Monday, April 29, when "All My Children" premieres with all new episodes via Hulu, Hulu Plus and iTunes with Pine Valley's citizens having picked things up five years after that traumatic night Adam Chandler (David Canary) and Brooke English (Julia Barr) celebrated their engagement and a shot went off. Fans will quickly be able to jump right back into the soap where "cute, sexy, action and adventure, romance and sex" may be a simple way to summarize the storytelling on any given daytime soap, but on "AMC" things are just all the better.
