"General Hospital" cast news reveals that "OLTL" alum James DePaiva will be playing a role in the ABC soap opera. Per TVLine, the actor will be joining the series, but his role in the show remains a mystery.

Given the actor's age in real life, several fans believed that his character will be that of Jeff Webber, who is Liz and Hayden's father on "General Hospital." This seems very likely to happen given the events that have been taking place at Port Charles recently.

Others, however, believe that DePaiva might be a recast for a character that either left Port Charles or died in past episodes of "General Hospital." All these are purely speculations and the actor's role will be unveiled in the coming months.

While many fans are already looking forward to the upcoming episodes of "General Hospital" with DePaiva's addition, GH spoilers from Celeb Dirty Laundry tease that Sam may find herself stricken with a disease. For a while, there have been reports that Sam will be battling an enemy from her past, but the publication notes that this may not be referring to a person, but rather, an illness.

Those who have followed "General Hospital" throughout its run are aware that Sam was struck with encephalitis in the past, which took the life of her brother, Danny. Sam also appears to be exhibiting symptoms of the disease's recurrence, which is making viewers wonder whether her time on the ABC soap opera is up.
