NEW YORK, Oct. 18 (UPI) -- "Jessie's Girl" singer Rick Springfield is headed back to ABC's "General Hospital" and the role of Dr. Noah Drake.

The Australian rocker portrayed the soap character from 1981 to 1983.

Springfield, 56, returns to "General Hospital" for at least four episodes starting Dec. 2, E! Online reports.

The last time "General Hospital" fans saw Dr. Drake, he was headed to Atlanta, E! noted.

"I guess there was a reason why they didn't kill Noah off in the '80s," Springfield said in a statement. "This should be fun."
