The snatch-and-grab actor game continues between The Young and the Restless and General Hospital. CBS Soaps In Depth is reporting Bruce Weitz is heading to Genoa City.

General Hospital’s Bruce Weitz Explains Character’s Motivation With Michael

Just what the devil is Anthony Zacchara (Bruce Weitz) up to on General Hospital? TV Guide's  Michael Logan dished with Weitz on what he has in stored for his rival Sonny's (Maurice Benard) son, Michael (Chad Duell).

TV Guide Magazine: This situation is so twisted! Sonny's son Michael killed Anthony's daughter Claudia [Sarah Brown], but Anthony has no problem with that. Instead, he's secretly trying to recruit Michael to be one of his mobsters. Explain this crazy-ass situation.

Weitz: Anthony loves the fact that Claudia is dead and he doesn't care who did it. He got rid of her and he didn't have to do it himself, so he's fine with it. Anthony has nothing against Michael except that he's Sonny's son. If he weren't, he'd probably like the kid. Anthony is only using Michael as leverage against Sonny.

Here’s the Scoop! 06.24.09

This Dominic character… so all the RUMORS said he was Dante. At first glance I thought no way he’s too old as the actor is thirty. But after a lengthy debate with our very own Luke about the industry norm of playing much younger than you actually are, I’ve since changed my mind. Now, was that Bensonhurst drop a little too obvious? And really no offense to Mr. Zamprogna but with all the hoopla surrounding Tom Pelphrey and GH’s desire to land him in the role of Dante how do you go from a soap stud to someone most fans know nothing about? I’ve read up on Mr. Zamprogna and his resume is impressive so I do not doubt that he has the chops to pull it off and lately the casting department has done a decent job with these newbies but IF this is Dante, it’s quite a switch from the big name they were going for.

Has all the Emmy drama died down? Congrats to the GH stars who were nominated. Now onto the SCOOP!

Michael’s awake… no memory of what happened to him and a little peeved his parents weren’t there. Edward and Monica tell Sonny they’re not going to let him hurt Michael again. Who jumps to Sonny’s defense? Who’s been his biggest cheerleader lately despite not wanting her own son around him? Olivia. She tells the Q’s to back off. But Edward wants his great grandson in the family fold and Michael MAY be toying with the old man. He’s also not going to be very nice to his mother as we’ve been dishing and it LOOKS like Michael dishes to Lulu just how mad he is at him momma.

More Lulu… She’s with Michael and there’s also this Ethan mess. Tracy, for whatever reason, admits to her step-daughter that she did mess with the test but did she see the real results or just fix them to make sure Luke isn’t the father? But why dish to Lulu? To keep her from committing maybe incest? Lulu is also battling her brother over their maybe half-brother.
