Max Gail Joins 'General Hospital' as New Mike Corbin

Barney Miller alum Max Gail has joined the cast of ABC soap opera General Hospital. He is taking on the role of Sonny Corinthos’ father, Mike Corbin. According to TVLine, he will first air on Monday, February 5, and is sticking around for an extended arc.

Ryan's Hope star Ron Hale originally played Sonny’s estranged, gambling addict dad from 1995 until 2010, at which point Mike got checked into rehab and Hale retired (announced exclusively in a We Love Soaps interview).

In addition to his run as Barney Miller‘s Det. Stan “Wojo” Wojciehowicz — for which he earned two Emmy nominations — Gail’s TV credits include the CBS sitcom Normal Life, the teen hackers drama Whiz Kids, Days of our Lives (as an old hippie named Merle), Gary Unmarried and Review. Most recently, he has guested on episodes of Hawaii Five-0 and Scorpion.
