John Colicos (Baltar) on GENERAL HOSPITAL!

John Colicos (Baltar) - Battlestar Galactica
John Colicos (Mikkos Cassidine) - General Hospital

Two years after the cancellation of Battlestar Galactica, John Colicos (Baltar) joined the cast of the powerhouse ABC daytime soap opera General Hospital.  1981 was the "golden" era of GH with an incredible 14 million viewers tuning in daily.  Colicos played the evil Mikkos Cassadine, a Greek tyrant bent on dominating the world.  In this justifiably famous clip from 1981, Mikkos attempts to freeze the city of Port Charles - and only Luke Spencer (surely the "Starbuck" of daytime TV!) can stop him!  A fun 15 minutes here - don't miss a second of it!  View this clip on YouTube HERE:
