Viewers of General Hospital were taken by surprise when they tuned in to watch the Sunday, Dec. 3 episode and saw a very familiar face — that was Greg Evigan playing Jim Harvey, the head of Niagara Equities. The land developer is trying to do business with ELQ, looking to develop Charles Street, but Ned and Michael are on opposite sides of the controversial development plan.
Greg will be immediately recognizable to television viewers from his role as Billie Joe McKay (opposite a chimpanzee!) in the ‘70s series B.J. and the Bear as well as Joey Harris on the popular ‘80s sitcom My Two Dads opposite Paul Reiser. He also starred in the series P.S. I Luv You and Tek War as well as appearing in other primetime shows like Dallas, Touched By an Angel, and JAG. His most recent TV acting role was in a 2017 episode of Bones, although his most recent TV appearance was in an August 2017 episode of Battle of the Network Stars!

On the big screen, Greg has appeared in many films including DeepStar Six, 100 Million BC, and Journey to the Center of the Earth. He is also an accomplished singer, having performed the theme song to B.J. and the Bear, and plays the piano, drums, and saxophone. He’s currently working on a new classical music album where he plays the piano with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Abbey Road Studios in London.
General Hospital hasn’t released any more information about Greg’s appearance or if he would be back again, but with a popular actor like that, we wouldn’t be surprised if they have more planned for him, so stay tuned!
