While the similarities between The Sopranos and General Hospital might not be obvious to some, loyal viewers of each show can relate various mob story lines to one another.
These fans can also now be excited about a major casting scoop, first reported by Entertainment Weekly:
Vincent ''Big Pussy'' Pastore is set to appear on General Hospital this October. He'll take on the role of Maximus Giambetti, a big-time mobster who comes to Port Charles to deal with his two sons, Sonny's bodyguards Max (Derek Cheetwood) and Milo (Drew Cheetwood).
The characters hits town thinking his eldest is actually the local mob boss - an idea that his son may have helped foster - and is far from pleased to find out about his sons' lowly status in the biz. Expect the storyline to have some humor mixed in, sources report.
