Nathan Parsons and Anthony Geary, General Hospital

An old pro will cross paths with a young con when television newcomer Nathan Parsons makes his General Hospital debut the week of Jan. 26, TVGuide.com has learned.

Playing the recurring role of Ethan, Parsons' first scenes take place on the Haunted Star, opposite multiple Daytime Emmy winner Anthony Geary (Luke). Later down the 'pike, just when Ethan thinks he has gotten away with some major grifting, he is blindsided by Luke at an out-of-town watering hole.

There, a kinship slowly forms, as a standoffish Luke begrudgingly comes to realize that he and this know-it-all "kid" have more in common than he might want to think.

But how much more in common...?
