one of Richards first roles was on General Hospital he played jeff webber.....father of elizabeth webber....

many years ago he said working on a soap was the hardest work he ever did and would never do it again. around the time he took that horrible fall...there was a storyline on GH rebecca budig playes hayden barnes...turns out her mother had an affair with jeff webber and she and elizabeth are half sisters.

a lot of fans thought maybe they would bring the character of jeff webber back....but that hasn't happened yet.....does anyone know if richard was asked to come back???

a few years ago they brought back a lot of old timers...but richard was not one of them...I read something that richard said no one asked him to come back.....someone posted to that that richard and gh could not come to an agreement.

a lot of us remember richard on GH all those years ago....and would love for him to come there any chance??

I'm a youngin' here, so I never got to watch RDA in General Hospital since it was before my time. I do watch it on YouTube, though, and he is very good in that show. It's always interesting to me to see him in his "pre-MacGyver" years. :)

I think it would be cool if he came back, but I'm not sure if that's something he wants to do. :( We'll have to wait and see I guess to find out what decisions, if any, he makes about returning to acting. Personally, I like his idea about reprising his MacGyver role as an older man. That's something I would definitely watch. :)
