Brad Rowe will join the cast of ABC's daytime drama General Hospital.

According to Soap Opera Digest, the handsome actor will play “Murphy Sinclair, an internationally famous movie star who is involved with supermodel Brenda (played by Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo).”

Rowe, who married Lisa Fiori in 1999, has played gay in two major motion pictures: Billy's Hollywood Screen Kiss and Shelter.

In Director Tommy O'Haver's Screen Kiss, Rowe, playing opposite openly gay Sean Hayes in his first starring role, plays Gabriel, a hunky waiter turned underwear model who sends Hayes' character of Billy mixed signals about his sexuality.

But while Screen Kiss might have been faux gayness, Rowe dives in head first in the gay romance film Shelter.

In the film, Rowe plays Shaun, a gay writer who falls in love with Zach, an aspiring artist played by Trevor Christopher Wright (George Lopez, Boston Public).

The 2007 film quickly racked up an impressive list of prizes as it toured gay and lesbian film festivals around the globe, including top prizes at festivals in Melbourne, Seattle and Tampa.

Forty-year-old Rowe checks into General Hospital on August 13.
