Here's the wiki on Bill Eckert (Full..here's some edited bits)
Bill is the cousin of the Spencer family who had just come to town with his young son, Sly Eckert , and recently divorced form his mother, Nancy. Bill's father died of a heart attack and Bill and his sister, Jenny Eckert, came into a large inheritance. Bill, now a wealthy man, moved into an abandoned lighthouse with his son Sly and Finian O'Toole, whom Bill had hired as a housekeeper. Bill was now dating Harlan's marketing genius daughter, Julia Barrett.Harlan brought her to Port Charles to run the cannery with ace in command, Bill Eckert.
Harlan Barrett, Leopold Taub, Cesar Faison, and Larry Ashton formed a cartel to control global business via the use of a toxic substance, carbon disulfide, manufactured at a cannery they purchased as a clever ruse for their operations and a place to brew the drug with which they intended to rule the world. Bill and Jenny were both kept in the dark about the cannery's real intentions.

So, Larry Aston (Ned's dad) was also in there, as was Harlan Barrett and Faison. I do not think that's Faison pretending to be Luke. There's no way the height works. NOT that that matters but Faison's been done to death. Could it be Anthony Z? Certainly that's who Luke is acting the most like (gum, Tracy love and inappropriate comments)...but his memory wouldn't span back that far. This imposter seems trapped in the era of that cartel story. It also could be Harlan Barrett--played by the guy on the Mod Squad. I need to watch old clips to remember how he acted.
BUT -- I'm still going with Bill. Maxie's new friend could totally be Sly too--looks like his freckled face. I don't know. Hell, Luke could be DEKE raised from the dead, intent on getting Sonny back. GH has been crazier.
CARTEL on YOU TUBE..there's a ton of them up there. Check them out if you feel like it!
SO... that's my 2 cents.
