SoapNet.com is reporting that insanely popular Days of Our Lives vet Jason Cook (ex-Shawn Douglas Brady) is joining General Hospital as a new doctor at GH. Of course this is causing rampant speculation that GH will see if Cook and his former Days leading lady Kirsten Storms (ex-Belle/Maxie) will have a "Shelle" of their former chemistry once Cook arrives in Port Charles.
"We CAN tell you his character will be crossing paths with Maxie very early on," said SoapNet.com's Jesse Murray. "Could there be a "Shelle" redux? You'll have to stay tuned for more details!"
Rumor has it the doctor Cook is signed to play will turn out to be none other than Liz's brother Steven, who was briefly paired with Carly the last time he was in town. Hmmm, me thinks Cook is a bit young to play Becky Herbst's older brother, but it would be nice to see Liz react to her bro hooking up with the woman who slept with her husband and fed him drugs! Welcome back to daytime Cookie! Thanks Ved for the tip!
