Gee, I miss Murder One. But if I can’t have the old legal drama back, then it looks like General Hospital is the place to go to get a Daniel Benzali fix these days. The ABC sudser lassoed the veteran actor for a generous story arc that will stretch well into 2011. EW obtained this exclusive peek at Benzali’s first day on the set, which will air Monday, Dec. 6. Benzali will play Theo, a hypochondriac patient who befriends Dr. Robin Scorpio (Kimberly McCullough) in her time of need. Also pictured is Scott Reeves as Dr. Steven Webber and Jason Thompson as Dr. Patrick Drake.

Benzali has most recently appeared in Nip/Tuck, Lie to Me, and Eli Stone and has a role in the upcoming rom-com How Do You Know.
