Is John Stamos headed back to General Hospital for the soap's upcoming 50th anniversary? Execs are the ABC soap are mum on the matter but the star himself will spill the very juicy beans on the Monday, Feb. 18 episode of The Jeff Probst Show and TV Guide Magazine has the exclusive clip!

During a sit-down with Probst, Stamos reveals he has indeed met with GH brass but was not thrilled to hear they want his popular '80s character, Blackie Parrish, to appear at the Nurse's Ball playing drums while Rick Springfield sings "Jessie's Girl."

"That's not gonna happen," Stamos tells Probst. "That's what I passed on." The actor goes on to say he's "indebted" to GH for putting him on the map and would happily return if given something meaty to do.

"Why don't we pull Blackie out of jail [where he's been for 30 years] and he has to reacclimate to life?" Stamos says. "He's never been with a girl! I would like to go on [GH] and do some acting."

So whaddya say GH? You've been challenged!

By the way, make sure you catch the full episode because Stamos even volunteers to be part of a "second wave" of GH favorites if something substantial can't be worked out in time for the actual anniversary. And Probst, who clearly wants to see Stamos jam with Springfield, tries to broker a compromise. It's talk-show gold!

I know practically nothing about Blackie, other than he was played by Stamos. I know the character was popular and put Stamos on the map prior to Full House. But it's not 1984. Would the character of Blackie really do well in 2013, and be deserving of a "meaty storyline" like Stamos wants? I have doubts.

Blackie's Laura's foster brother, there could be some great stuff with Laura and Leslie(I have no doubt Leslie will return)

I wouldn't mind seeing the Blackie angle brought back up and dealt with. I'm OK with Stamos wanting something substantial to do. He doesn't want to be a prop and I can't blame him for it. I can't believe it but I totally thought to myself Ron and Frank would ask him to just show up and play drums. Guess we can assume Rick Springfield will be back for the Nurse's Ball.

John did say they thought they'd only be able to get him for an hour or two
