  • Joseph Mitchell "Joe" Scully, Jr. was a fictional character on the soap opera General Hospital. He was the son of the late, mob boss, Joe Scully, and the father of the late, Trey Mitchell, through raping the now late, Connie Falconeri (aka Kate Howard).

    He was portrayed by actor Richard Steinmetz from July 2, 2012 until October 23, 2012.


    His on-screen appearance was short in 2012. He was the mystery financier of the production of his son's Trey Mitchell reality show of Mob Princess. The show's main character was supposed to be Kristina Corinthos detailing her life as a mob daughter of Sonny Corinthos. He is seen on-screen in Atlantic City in his Antiques shop where Sonny Corinthos sends for him. He is later arrested.

    He is mysteriously released with the help of Jerry Jacks. He is later seen in Port Charles. Jerry orders him to help in his water contamination scheme. He is given an antitoxin from Jerry. He gives it to his new romance Tracy Quartermaine.

    Scully was instructed by Cesar Faison under the disguise of Duke Lavery to persuade his son Trey to marry Kristina. Trey married Kristina in Las Vegas during the water contamination scare. Scully then kidnapped Kristina and was almost going to kill her. Trey stopped him and the father and son engaged into a struggle for the gun. The gun goes off and Joe is shot in the shoulder.
