General Hospital

Are OLTL's Ted King and Michael Easton headed to General Hospital?



There is a report today that has surfaced from ABC Soaps In Depth that indicated they have heard rumblings that both Ted King (Currently Tomas, OLTL and Ex- Alcazar on GH) and Michael Easton ( Currently John, OLTL and Ex- Caleb, PC) could be headed to General Hospital in which the duo would reunite with the new GH creative team ( and former OLTL team) of  Frank Valentini and Ron Carlivati!

According to SID, “King, will possibly be returning to Port Charles in the new year, and he may be bringing Michael Easton (John) with him! A spokesperson for the soap reminds that GH does not comment on rumors, but word is that both actors have a tentative start date set for late January.


It’s unclear whether King will return as an Alcazar brother, or his OLTL role. And one source reports that Easton would most likely be appearing as his Llanview Police detective alter ego.”

The item goes on to hint that Kristen Alderson (Starr, OLTL) could possibly be being considered for the role of Kristina, (Sonny and Alexis’s daughter) last played by Lexi Ainsworth.

So what do you think of a King/Easton arrival in Port Charles? Let us know!

I hope Frank and Ron are given enough time to turn the soap around. With Katie’s show set to debut in September, it isn’t much time. Michael Easton’s John McBain would make sense in PC, but what about Natalie? Not sure about Ted King..though he is a good actor. Time will tell.

WOW, I love these two,Id rather oltl stay on tv and be able to watch them in landview, but if they ,cant port charlas will do ,can they be tomas and john ? and while my favorit writing team is going to gh ,can about 20 more people from oltl go to gh? todd blair tia vicky clint david roxy dorian .they can all relocate in a new city ,being the same characters .I will watch.anyway I am running out of the hours I have left with the best soap ever,ONE LIFE TO LIVE .

I love OLTL, but Ron/Frank need to be careful. Too many Llanview characters and they will piss off long time GH fans. ATWT brought over Jake McKinnon from AW and it was successful. It can be done. I hear rumors that the actress who plays Starr is being considered for the role of Kristina on GH. Time will tell. OLTL should have never been axed.

i agree oltl is the best abc soap and gh being axed in may makes no sence abc is going down the tubes in daytime t.v.

TSJ! But GH is getting cancelled by summer, so the point is a little moot. KA would be a horrible Kristina.

“and gh being axed in may makes no sence ”

Really? You can predict the future?

Watch your quoting. That’s a quote from genia.

True. My bad.

But your post is also predicting the future like genia.

But agree with what said about KA.

As someone pointed out here, I don’t think GH fans wants their show to become Llanview. And I would go as far as saying that some OLTL fans probably also don’t want GH to become the new OLTL.

I would not like them going to GH. I still am wanting #AMC and #OLTL to find safe and loving homes so these shows can continue on.

I have to disagree Many of the actors have moved on and some probably already have found a job. A return of AMC and OLTL at this point would mean shows with a bunch of recast or new characters. That would be AMC and OLTL in name only.

Hey, people have to work! If it is true, I wish them the best. They are both good actors.

Too soon for me to even think about this. I’m still in mourning over OLTL, so I don’t want to even envision my OLTL characters on another soap.

Really. Totally agree. OLTL is the best & it would be too weird to see any of those beloved people on dark, violent, creepy, repititious, non-family oriented (unless it’s their mob familier) not funny ever, GH.


I wouldn’t mind TK or ME coming over to GH – especially if they paired ME back up with KeMo (a la Port Charles). I can’t see KA as Kristina AT ALL. I think that would be a very poor choice. I think GH needs to step up its game, regardless of these casting decisions. Pay more attention to history, families, love/romance, even comedy (Diane Miller? HELLO???) and stop with the violence, bad pairings and rushed storylines.

If anyone here is a Y&R fan you noticed how them bringing actors from other soaps that were cancelled works. Think Genie Francis, Maura West, Debbie Morgan. Fix the characters you have FIRST! Please everyone seems to think they are the 2nd coming I beleive these are the guys that gave OLTL the Ford brothers, Cutter, Rick Aubrey, and not writing for the longtime vets. I can bet you GH actors will not be happy with this. And for the record Lexi Ainsworth was a good actress and a lovely person and if she got fired becasue she wasn’t old enough or sexy enough. Kirsten Alderson is not the recast for this she grew up on OLTL if this is how it is going down add another nail in the coffin.

I do NOT want Port Charles to turn into Lanview…
Ted King is a GH alum so if he wants to return as, what a third Alcazar brother…maybe but not need to bring ME over…
And if they got rid of Lexi cause she wasn’t sexy enough Kristen would not be a good a choice besides…there are way too many blondes on GH

G*D knows Pt Chuckles needs some competent cops there, as long as he don’t bring Gnatalie, Jawn is welcomed.

I can’t stand all the mob stuff on GH. I fell in love with the heroes there in the 1980s and can’t believe all the violence and crime there now. Just the other day I told my husband GH was so depressing that it hurt to watch. I sure hope the new team can whip it into shape. Ted and Michael would be a welcome addition.


i think that if Kristen Alderson come to GH she should play Starr, and Blair should flow, and still be with Thomas….. this two story lines could weave wonders together….

None of these three recasts sound like a good idea and certainly not so soon in late January. They need to concentrate on core characters. Easton I guess would be OK if they can’t get Lucky back but why would they need him if they have Anna, Robert and Mac? Ted King I do not want to see as either a mobster or an agent. Again, we have some core characters that fill both of those roles very nicely. And I would love to see Duke back as the grey, sophisticated mobster. The Lexi situation is very sensitive. Cartini had better tread carefully with fans who’ve been denied SO MUCH of what they want over the past years.

jennifer i agree, you know what needs to be done? all these people who take over shows need to stop thinking they can make a show better by adding new characters and not paying attention to what they have already in place. GH problem is not the on air talent but the behind the scene talent who time an time again make the same mistake and start firing actors we love and replacing them with “their talent”.

I have to add my voice to yours, too. With Sonny’s gang and the Zaccharas, Port Charles already has more mobsters than it needs. What is GH gonna do, bring back Ted King as Lorenzo Alcazar and have a hate triangle as opposed to a love triangle?! The show needs to tone down the crime and violence and pump up the romance and core families. They could do both with the original Duke Lavery, GH’s archetypical gangster with a heart of gold. Lorenzo could never be more than a pale imitation of a guy who took down two mob families and captured none other than Anna Devane’s heart.

As much as I love and am going to miss OLTL, I don’t think that it would be wise for FV and RC to risk alienating GH fans with these sort of casting moves. For instance, Ted King is a good actor, but bringing back Lorenzo Alcazar (or ANY Alcazar) would only serve to perpetuate the mob nonsense instead of lessening it. As for the character of Tomas, would he really leave Blair, Tea’ , Dani and his new niece or nephew to relocate to PC? I can’t see it. Same goes for John re: Natalie and Liam. These people belong in Llanview. That’s how I want to remember them. And KA, as likeable as she is as Starr (JMO), is totally wrong for the role of Kristina. Frank and Ron need to concentrate on making GH a much better show by improving the quality of the stories and scripting for the cast members that are already there.

well it would be nice to keep oltl on but sence abc is stupid and i dont watch gh some or all cast from oltl would be great then i would watch gh again

I would follow Michael Easton to any show! But if he stayed as John McBain, I would be ecstatic! Now all they need is Melissa Archer/Natalie.

I agree. I really don’t see how he would be there without Natalie and Liam. I want Llanview back too but it would be nice if they could move these characters there maybe just for a storyline. Port Charles could use some cleaning up.

I thought they wanted to improve kristina.

Right!? Ain’t that right. Ain’t—That—Right!!!

Well, if they’re looking to cancel the show because of the budget, this is the way to go.

Whatever but Ted King I know came from GH.
Easton doesnt fit there, Sonny’s KING so….no way.

Alderson no way….sorry…now shes gonna play a Gangters Daughter????

everyone thinks oltl is golden, but it had its flaws too, and to act like it was perfect is a big mistake, if they make gh to much like oltl then it wont work, i don’t mind some actors coming over, only if they take the place of the newbies, but not the gh vets, and i don’t think KA, is a better replacement as kristina then the original, who they should bring back.

Bringing on Carlivati/Valentini is a way of ABC saying “F-YOU AND GOODBYE”

Would love to see Michael Easton paired with Kelly Monaco again. They absolutely sizzled on PC!! FV wrote so much better for TK on OLTL then any of the writing he got for either Alcazar brother on GH. It’d be interesting to see.

Awesome… I love it!

Merry Christmas to Soap Fans and I hope next year keeps the four soaps left on the air that we get writers etc to save them. It is with a heavy heart that I who have moved schedules etc over the years to catch a glimpse of story telling might come to a total end. Keep the Faith!!!!

I would not mind if Ted King comes back to the show, but not John McBain, I can not see him working with Dante and Mac/ As far as Kirsten Aldreson as Kristina, that makes now sense as she is the same age as the last actress and she is blonde does not look like a Corrinthos( can not see her with dyed brown hair) I think the character just needs to stay at college. GH will be off the air in May so very sad..

where did you read that g h will be over in may ? I thought that katie (the ,I got fired from cbs because I couldnt do the nightly news ,and now abc hired me because I can do a talk show now.) couric, will be killing gh in september.and as far as john mcbain goes ,he will fit in very well.and kirsten alderson can pretty much do anything,I have watched her grow up on oltl and she is a beauitful star. gh needs help,there is to much crime and the stories are boring.and if I had a choice of which soap I would keep on abc ,It would be ONE LIFE TO LIVE,It was never boring.sure they had crime ,and bo and john could find the bad guys,but gh goes on and on about sonnys life its sonny this and sonny that ,and yes i grew tired of GENERAL HOSPITAL,If they have a chance to save it ,It has to be done now.

No one knows what will happen to General Hospital. So please people, stop speculating that General Hospital will be cancelled. It may or may not cancelled. But last time I checked, none of you worked for ABC.

merry christmas .did you read what I said, where did you read that gh will be over in may?Ididnt say it will be over in may, and every sight I go to says katie couric will have a talk show,that is no speculation .there were rumors that abc would cancel amc and oltl and look what happened amc is gone and oltl has very little time left.and I do think that gh needs a john mcbain and tomas and if they take star to ,I like it.No I dont work for abc ,but I do know they put alot of people out of work,right down to the people who deliver the meals it goes on and on ,its not speculation ,its fact. so i dont think I would want to work for abc they messed up alot of people,and thats sad.

I’m very well aware that Katie Couric has a show that will take General Hospital’s timeslot.

I’m not saying that General Hospital is not going to cancelled nor do I say it’s going to get cancelled.

As recently two years ago, everybody said One Life to Live and Days of Our Lives would both go before All My Children. Well look what happened. All I’m saying is let’s stop thinking about the future and let’s live to the present. Because the future can hold many surprises.

I agree ,and I hope that we do get a big surprise, that one life to live stays on tv and all my children makes a comeback.there are alot of fans that will support the shows ,they will be watched.I am getting worried that general hospital will start getting the stars that belong on one life to live.As far as that pp (the online network ) say. that one life to live and all my children still have life,I hope they tell the soap fans something ,this waiting game ,is crazy,anyway all the soap fans that are on facebook go to the sight ,daytime fans unite ,hit the like button to get counted as a soap fan ,we are trying to get to ten thousand by this weekend.

The LAST thing GH needed was Carlivati/Valentini. So I hope they don’t destroy the show and making it boring like OLTL has been for years.

If King came back, I’d want it as al Alcazar brother, and as for Easton? I don’t want him nor need him. And if Kristen comes on as Kristina, I think I could tolerate that, as Lexi was a tad annoying and Kristen is less annoying, but I hated that character regardless.

GH doesn’t need new cast members. They need to condense their cast and bring back the two core families: Spencers and Quartermaines.

seriously ,you dont like one life to live? you think it is boring?the best thing for gh is the writers of oltl.Ive watched general hospital pretty much since day one and in the last 10 to 15 years its been boring. instead of giving sonny another kid,which he has to many ,they should have brought laura back.and get rid of thats boring.bringing robert and anna is a good idea to.I still would like oltl stay on tv and forget about anyone going to gh.

I hate OLTL. It should’ve gone before GL/ATWT/AMC. The WORST thing for GH right now are Valentini/Carlivarti. Everything OLTL has done is boring. It’s slow ans the acting is somewhat horrific by several of the actors.


ok calm down,us oltl fans really want to keep the show on tv or the net. dont want to see any one go to gh,but thats what is happening with the writers ,john and tomas.If the writing staff of gh was so good ,why is abc sending them packing?I know alot of gh fans like the crime stories ,I dont its to much sonny and I cant stand franco and his stupid codes he spray paints all over port charlas ,I started watching gh when it began ,and it was never written like it is now. this gh is the sonny corintos show,nothing more nothing less and I am sick of it.

ABC aren’t sending Wolf packing, they’re just demoting him. I don’t like the crime stories, I could care less about Sonny and Franco is just insulting. If Valentini/Carlivati were so good, why did OLTL get the boot? Ever think of that? I lost GL/ATWT, you can stand to lose OLTL. No sympathy here.

Valentini/Carlivati are a way of saying f-you GH fans and goodbye to the series.

ABC has been cheep with one life to live ,and valentini /carlivati where keeping the costs down ,the cast all took cuts in pay, and they still put on one hell of a good show.valentini /carlivati are not the reason amc and oltl were canceled ,abc wants out of the soap business,there changing everything on there daytime programing,if anyone said f-you it was abc to the cast and the fans of amc and wants to go CHEEP,and soaps do cost alot to produce ,I could be wrong but I think abc made a big mistake alienated alot of abc fans ,abc was always my choice to watch daytime and night,now all I will watch is gh after oltl is over.and by the way wasnt the gl/atwt on cbs?those two soaps being canceled have nothing to do with why abc canceled amc and oltl.and oltl was never any slower than any other soap,keeps you tuned in every day,and thats why they call them SOAPS. ,they go on and on and thats what keeps you wanting life ti live is like my family for 43 years ,its not going to be easy letting go.

Yes, ABC is alienating their soap following, or should I say Frons was. Times are changing, and mothers aren’t staying home to watch soaps. Times are changing and this is a reflection of the times.

And I only referred to GL/ATWT because of everyone losing AMC/OLTL. I’m a CBS guy at heart, have been since I was three years old. OLTL is slow, and that DOESN’T make people tune in. Slow means it’s slow; they drag storylines out for too long and some of them are just outrageous. OLTL is slow, and I don’t think Valentini/Carlivati are all they’re cracked up to be. I give them a month before I stop watching GH.

you really should give gh more than a month ,I still do not agree with you about oltl being slow,if you watch gh lisa going after robin was one of the longest stories that would not end ,I thought it was over when she was in a coma and johnnys crazy father (I like him ) woke her up ,insane.oltl seems more like family .gh is the sonny corintous show and I dont like that in a soap,gh killed the quartermaines ,they are hardly ever on whats left of them and why they killed aj and alan doesnt make sense. I watched gh since its beginning ,my friend and I would run home from school and sit with my grandmother and enjoy,and why abc couldnt keep the soap channel ,well we will never know, theres a love channel food channel western sci fi whats wrong with a soap channel ? they could put all of them on . including the ones that are gone.but seriously you have to give the writers longer than a month .takes longer then a month to create a good story.and frons was a abc puppet ,hes not the only one who killed the soaps.

barbara t said “and by the way wasnt the gl/atwt on cbs?those two soaps being canceled have nothing to do with why abc canceled amc and oltl”

And you expect people to believe that CBS’s cancellation of GL and ATWT did not influence in any way ABC’s move to cancel AMC and OLTL.

heather,then why didnt they start canceling all the soaps when abc killed ryans hope,another good soap.santa barbara,all good soaps ,I believe all the networks want out of the soap business,and thats sad ,because there are alot of people who want to save the soaps ,I am one of them.and I know I keep saying this,one life to live ,should not be canceled,its one hell of a good show.have you seen the trash thats going to replace it?awful.

@barbara t

Soaps have always been cancelled in the 1960s, the 1970s and the 1980s. But when a soap was cancelled back then,it was usually a short lived soap opera being replaced by another soap.

NBC’s cancellation of Passions most likely did not influence ABC because 1) Passions was a short lived soap opera and 2) NBC has a reputation of being a soap killer with little stability in its daytime block. But CBS is a different story. Like ABC, CBS soaps were on the air for a very longtime. Like ABC, CBS had a stable daytime block. So when CBS eliminated GL and ATWT to replace them by junk shows, that pretty much set the standard for ABC to make it acceptable to cancel long running soap operas and replace them by yet other trash shows.

Now, the next step for broadcast networks is which one will be the first to exit the soap opera business and to set the “exemple” to the other two networks. CBS has two soap operas,so it’s unlikely that they will be the first network to exit the business. It will most likely be ABC or NBC. But once a network breaks the ice to exit the industry, the other two networks will follow suit.

I do believe that soap operas will return in 20 or 30 years from now ,albeit in a new format. But soap operas as we know them today, meaning the soap operas that were created by Irna Phillips and her descendants (Nixon, Bell, Corday,etc), are unfortunately going the way of the dinosaur.

@Barbara sorry but I’m not giving them more than a month. I fail to see the power of the mighty team of Valentini/Carlivarti. I found everything they did on OLTL to be boring and slow.

@Heather if anything, ABC would be the first to exit. NBC is really giving DAYS the light of day, finally. CBS wouldn’t cancel Y&R nor B&B, Y&R is their second highest rated programme to-date, and B&B is one of their highest. NBC is truly investing into DAYS now, especially since their reboot. It’s ABC that wants out of the daytime industry.


But the reboot has done nothing to improve the ratings of DAYS. Every weeks, DAYS is competing with GH for the dead last position in the ratings. If ratings remain the way they currently are, there’s no way NBC is going to renew it in 2013.

I don’t think NBC necessarily invest more in DAYS than ABC does with GH. ABC has recently renovated some of GH’s sets as well as hiring Valentini and Carvilarti. ABC and NBC run promos of GH and DAYS in similar proportions. But more is expected from DAYS than GH because NBC does not own the show like ABC does with GH.

But in retrospective of the dwindling stance of daytime, it’s ratings are good. The reboot really rejuiced the show and NBC’s dedication to it. I remember a time NBC wanted out on soaps and now they seem to be holding on as I heard they tried buying AMC from ABC.

As for Carlivarti/Valentini, that’s to sink GH. Not to save it. I fail to see how amazing these two are. IF they were amazing, how come OLTL is cancelled? Huh? Someone care to tell me that? If they were so masterful, the show wouldn’t be ending.

Days ratings are not by any means good. It is dead last among the five soap operas in terms of total viewers, even behind ABC’s two soaps . In December, Days recorded, not one, but TWO all-time low ratings among the 18-49 women category. This is what NBC wants to renew in 2013??????? You tell me.

AMC on AMC is a rumor that was started by hardcore AMC fans on Facebook. The same fans said that AMC would go on OWN, USA and Bravo, all of which turned out to be false. AMC is not going anywhere and certainly not on NBC because 1) ABC won’t sell it to NBC and 2) NBC doesn’t want it on its schedule.

To be honest with you, I don’t expect much from the Carlivarti/Valentini duo on GH. I was trying to make a point that NBC does not necessarily invest more on Days than ABC does with GH.


On my last post, I met to say “AMC on NBC is a rumor that was started by hardcore AMC fans on Facebook”.(instead of AMC on AMC). But you probably had already figured it out, lol.

I love Sonny. Love. But the one thing I pride myself on is being objective, and YOU are right about the show being all about Sonny. I feel it’s about anything Sonny. I hate how in every show, you hear the slogan “Keep you isafe”, or the word, “safe”. It’s suffocating. I HATE when I hear it, bc it has become so Phony now bc it’s used TOOOOOOO much by everyone.

Here, here. I totally agree! As much as I LOVE Michael Easton, GH needs to focus on the Spensers and Quartamaines. Bring back Alan. Let it be all a bad dream, ala “Dallas”. That will be the GH I knew and loved back in the day.

GH doesn’t need Easton. He’s the last thing they need. Wolf did the base work for bringing the Quartermaines back in, now they need someone like Lorraine Broderick to come in and bring it all together. Wolf said mob would be a back story, but it’s still too much on the forefront. Sonny is too much of a focus, though seeing him in Bensonhurst has given me a slightly new light to him.

I would LOVE to see both on GH, especially as their current characters, but I’ll take them either way I could get them. I’ve always thought watching John McBain interact with Spinelli would be fun! But please leave Natalie in Llanview!

Yes, Natalie in Llanview, John McBain with Spineli would be an excellent idea interacting.

I agree. John loves Natalie….and he has his son…why would he leave?

That would be fantastic but leave Natalie in Llanview!!!! John needs someone who compliments both his sexiness and maturity on the screen. Looking forward to it!

Someone like Kelly Monaco. What a couple they were on PC! Move over Jason!


Many of the fan fighters have called affiliates, and they all said the same thing that GH is not on their schedule after May. Gh is has always been my favorite, and i have stuck with it through ups and downs. OL and AMC are the one’s that I did not always seen consistently because they got boring. But AMC was always my second pick. I do not want to see all the shows gone. But sadly they will be ….
Please write to Vicky Dummer and NBC and let them know we love the soaps and want them on, and they need their own network!

so, write to an nbc affiliate to save abc soaps, oh, ok.

Please write to Vicky Dummer and NBC and let them know we love the soaps and want them on, and they need their own network!

Connie, you need to KEEP posting this (above) that you wrote on Dec 24th, ALL OVER THIS SITE, bc there is ALLOT going on, on this site. I’m JUST seeing this and it’s January 8th. Please POST that ALL orver this site and on Facebook- BC there are soaps fans not on facebook like myself. You can’t expect to write that 1 time for everyone to see when there is just so much to read and comment on, on this site, as well as the comment section. You should go to and post (the above) a few different places on that site for people like myself who aren’t on Facebook, or twitter. If you are part of a MOVEMENT you believe in, you have to make it VISUAL. Also, make it CLEAR in YOUR WRITING what the Fans should do. And DONT FORGET TO JOIN US, our MOVEMENT in sending bar’s of soap to the ABC Studio in nyc. Let the abc executives be BOMBARDED with bar’s of soap coming from folk all across the U.S., and Canada. Now again POST THIS (Please write to Vicky Dummer and NBC and let them know we love the soaps and want them on, and they need their own network! ) everywhere and everytime U get on this site and

John should move to Port Charles with Liam,but leave Natalie behind.I would love to see a storyline about a single father raising a kid on a soap.

would love to see Michael`s blue eyes on GH if true but whats the point if GH is going to be cancelled

I will start rewatching GH if Michael Easton and Kristen Alderson come over. I was never impressed with Ted King. His character Tomas never developed. SEnding Roxy to Port Charles and having her open up Foxy Roxys would definitely save the show.

I would love roxy to open up a foxy roxy in port charlas,she knows how to run a business and keep us laughing,I do like ted king,on any soap he has been on, he can bring his sister tia and blair with todd 1 and 2. I dont think that landview is far away from port charlas so there wont be a problem moving .I love the whole cast of one life to live and there are alot of people leaving gh ,ethan should stay, he is underused,robin to, Ive watched her grow up on gh.cant let her die that will be to sad.

Definitely NO for Kristian Alderson as Kristina. If they thought Lexi looked too young (which I don’t believe she did) well KA doesn’t look any older.

Kristen looks older than Lexi does. Lexi looked 14, Kristen looks early 20s.


Natalie is very spicy and could hang in Port Charles. Dont’ see John leaving his new family behind if he goes to Port Charles. They should move them along with Rex, Gigi, and Roxy. Just for maybe a storyline.

Although, I am wondering if GH is next….seems like ABC is not really supportive of the soap opera genre anymore.

Only Michael Easton for me……..why would he
Need Nat?……

Though Im a Jason & Sam fan I would like to
See ME interact with Sbu and KM
No need for Ms Archer charactet..jmop

Well, I recognize that some people don’t like Natalie she is the love of John Mcbain’s life and after waiting a very long time for their storyline to wrap up and with John getting his son, it makes little sense to separate them. But I guess time will tell.

I have been a huge GH and OLTL fan for years, and while I would love to see OLTL continue online or somewhere, somehow, if that is not to be, I am THRILLED (for them and us) to see Michael Easton and Ted King go to GH. I would also love to see Alderson as well, I think she could make Kristina work, being Sonny’s daughter is not such a far stretch from being Todd’s daughter.

Happy, healthy New Year to all !!!!!

Yes I would love to see the same, but I can’t imagine him being there without Nat. He just found his way back to her as well as his new son so that will be interesting.

IF the former OLTL writers wanted to bring super-cop McBain and super-secret agent Tomas Delgado to General Hospital for a shoot-out with Sonny and Jason for the GH finale, I MIGHT be tempted to tune back in to General Hospital for the last couple of hours before the show lands in that big soap opera trash can in the sky. But that is the ONLY potential story line which MIGHT be able to lure me back to GH. Otherwise, just bringing some OLTL stars over to GH would NOT be any sort of inducement. After all, several years ago, when OLTL tried to imitate the “general hospital” mob infestation, OLTL fans rose up in disgust and OLTL quickly dumped the Llanview Mobsters story lines into the nearest dumpster. So the ONLY mobsters which would interest former OLTL viewers would be mobsters on the way to the slammer – OR on the way to the nearest graveyard!

you have a good point ,I hate the gh mob stories and francos finger painting all over port charles.BUT I keep watching and hoping that those stories END.sent all the mobsters like you said to the slammer or the graveyard.for a lonbg time now gh puts me to sleep ,BORING.

I always get my nap on GH hospital, Literally.

My poor 83 year old aunt ,she use to love gh and is so disappointed in abc for canceling oltl and amc, what she did was fast forward gh ,now she sleeps.same with me and I can leave the room come back same crap,Always the same stories,my point is abc will kill gh if something isnt done now ,the ratings will sink. choose now ,katie couric or general hospital,I want the soap.

That would be great if all those actors end up on GH.

Bringing Michael Easton and Ted King to GH would be a fantastic move. Pairing Michael Easton with Kelly Monaco would be a very smart idea. They have proven in the past that they are great together…so put them back together again and let them light up the screen again. I really hope this isn’t a rumor and both of these talented actors are headed to GH.

I love Michael Easton and have grown to like Ted King. I really really hope they go to General Hospital. At least I will still get to see them. Since soap operas are notorious for bringing people back they should bring Kaitlyn back for John. I wonder how that would work out? I firmly expect to see a lot of the actors/actresses from OLTL show up making General Hospital their new home. There will be a lot more money with just one soap on ABC.

I’d love to see them on GH, too. I’d also like GH to fill up two hours of daytime now!! (I think soaps are more real than these “reality” shows they’re putting on the air!)

Scott,There is no way a story can be created in a month ,not on a soap,your mind is made up that gh will be trashed ,and oltl was boring and slow so I cant change your mind about that ,but if you care about the soaps no matter which one you watch ,they have to be saved or they will be gone.One life to live was my choice of best soap ever ,and I have been tuning in for 50 years of soap watching ,even michael agrees one life to live ,best soap,and it is ,the best writing and the wonderful cast.and GH will not be gone because of the writing ,It will be gone because abc wants it gone,and Im afraid thats what is happing ,if abc cared about there soap fans they would let agnes nixons stories go to another network instead of hanging on to them ,In other words,there not going to have them ,but no one else is either .Thats ABC for you .When gh is gone ,I am to.

Can we ask msWinfrey to at least give an hour a week to these soaps. ? I’d rather watch them in a once a week hour show than not at all!!!!!!!!

she was asked to put the soaps on her new network and she turned them down,her network from what I am hearing is not doing to good ,I believe she should have taken those soaps and ran with them, she would have millions of all my children and one life to live fans tuning in everyday,But even if she did want to take them abc wont let the soaps go without a big check,abc is greed ,If there not going to keep the soaps ,no one else will get them either and thats sad that abc killed those soaps with such rich history .When they cancel general hospital ,Im done with abc,most of there programing daytime and prime time is rapidly going down hill.And I hope those shows they put on to take over all my children and one life to live ,get canceled ,abc says the chew is doing good I dont buy it.there commercials are cheep and tacky,no way I could spent an hour there with all those people ,and the food looks like something I cant write here.

I have been watching this soap drama for many years. I can remember when Star was a very you lady. I really feel so betrayed because I won’t have these people in my life any more.
Please take pity on all their fans and find a place for them to stay on.
The revolution should be to have fans fight for their show and give their loyal fans some satisfaction.
Pleease I implore the powers to be to make this happen

as for Micheal Easton coming he should come as a special
detective to investigate Franco Jeff Branson
did on Y&R..I would love that….

But I want my.Jasam…
to have
Kelly Michael Steve working together.will be great
but dont recast him as Rick

Sounds fantastic … and while they’re at it, why not bring John-Paul Lavoisier with them? We need a new Lucky Spencer!

Starr is too blonde and white to play Kristina. Plus, she has been Starr for so long, it would be difficult to accept her as an established character on GH. If they want to add her to the cast, a new character would be soooo refreshing!!!! Laura and Luke’s long lost daughter that Laura had while suffering from amnesia while away from Luke, maybe with the Cassadines!

we already had that story,nicolas remember him .wish they would bring him back .and star is not to blond and white to play anything ,shes good ,I have watched her since she was a little star and that girl can act.I would love to see her on gh,bring half of landview ,more than half.I still cant believe one life to live is has bad writing ,has been boring for many years ,and if the writers from one life to life can fix that ,GOOD for gh,And having a little piece of landview in port charles is good,get rid of all that crime ,theres to much of it.but if I have a choice ,I would want one life to live to stay on ,cancel the cancellation ABC.

Sorry Barbara. I met that message for Terrrie, that I just sent to you. But you told Terrrie right, (which I didn’t see and that’s why I was responding, No need to now). Yes, we have already had that story and I state that as well, meaning Nickolas, being the child she didn’t know about.

I think you hit it on the nail when you said she has been Star for to long, it would be difficutl to accept her as an established character on GH. Agreed, because I have thought ‘same’. Star needs to take some time off, and then should she resign with another soap, it should be on another channel. Signing up with abc, and GH would be a disaster. For the record, that was a Good idea you had about Star being a long lost daughter, BUT Laura was in a facility while she was suffering n amnesia. And too, she already has a child she didn’t know about, It would be too far fetched. Star needs to go to another channel in due time. That is what would be refreshing.

I disagree with you that kristen alderson played star for so long she cant be on general hospital or play any other role ,she is a actress and a very good singer,Did you see her sing that song the way mr pron guy wants her to sing it ?pretty good .I would love to see her on general hospital ,not as lauras daughter.and k a . does not have to take time off she has already, since abc threw everyone out after taping at the abc studio,thats long enough ,my point is I know she can be anyone she puts her heart into doing she an actress,and if its gh so be it,gh needs help, people are leaving ,maybe there jumping ship before abc sinks it ,but something has to be done to gh its boring ,it needs all the help it can get ,the stories need to be changed ,my writers from one life to live can do that .still I would rather they stay at ONE LIFE TO LIVE.and continue the millions of stories that are left for that soap.I am so disappointed in abc.

It is so refreshing to be able to leave a comment wihtout joining something!!

Exactly. And have to remember ALL those da,n p[asswprds all over the place.

In a tradition that was started by four-time Daytime Emmy winner Susan Flannery (Ex-Stephanie, The Bold and the Beautiful), the winning actress from the previous year has to pick up the tab, choose a restaurant and host a fun afternoon gathering for this year’s crop of nominees.

Attending the festivities were 2023 Lead Actress nominees: Melissa Claire Egan (Chelsea, The Young and the Restless), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis, The Young and the Restless), Sharon Case (Sharon, The Young and the Restless) Finola Hughes (Anna, General Hospital), and Jacqueline MacInnes Wood (Steffy, The Bold and the Beautiful).

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom Shares Heartfelt Message to Mark His 30-Year Anniversary as Dr. Kevin Collins

It’s hard to believe that it’s been 30 years since back on December 3rd, 1993, when General Hospital viewers got the shock of their lives as the ABC soap opera introduced the psychiatrist twin brother of serial killer, Ryan Chamberlain, in the form of Dr. Kevin Collins.

For soap fans that meant we got to see even more of one of the finest actors ever to appear in the genre in Jon Lindstrom. The talented actor started on GH a year and half earlier in June of 1992 as Ryan.

Fast-forward to 2023 and Lindstrom is in the running for this year’s Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Drama Series when the 50th annual Daytime Emmy Awards are given out in less than two weeks on Friday night, December 15th on CBS. Could an Emmy on his 30th year playing Kevin and Ryan be in the cards? Stay tuned.

It has been well-documented that former GH creatives Wendy Riche (ex-EP), Claire Labine (ex-head writer) and Michelle Val Jean (ex-writer) were all instrumental in keeping Jon in Port Charles with a second role as Kevin, when he could have headed to As the World Turns at the time to play the role of Damian Grimaldi, that eventually went to Paolo Seganti.

Taking to his Instagram on Sunday to acknowledge this special milestone, Jon shared via video message, “I woke up this morning to see that today December 3rd, marks 30 years since I debuted as Dr. Kevin Collins on General Hospital. I knew that it had been a long time, but 30 years since the doppelgänger to Dr. Ryan Chamberlain was introduced. It really is remarkable. It’s been a great ride, a great run. it’s like an entire career right there. I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. It’s just been great.”

Lindstrom paid tribute to those who helped create Kevin, expressing, “I have a lot of people to thank about that, let alone people like Wendy Riche and the brass at ABC at the time … Claire Labine who was writing the show back, but Michelle Val Jean was really was the one who I had the pleasure of working with to develop and bring to life Kevin Collins. She’s still a great friend today. So, there’s been a lot of blessings around this for me, and don’t think, I don’t know it. I pretty much drop to my knees every day in gratitude. Thank you world for supporting Dr. Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain, for that matter. I’ll do it as long as they’ll have me.”

Accompanying his video, Jon wrote: “So grateful today for my 30 years of ‘Kevin Collins’ (and ‘Ryan Chamberlain’) on General Hospital, and for the wonderful journey my life has been, for my friends, my the family and incredible opportunities I’ve had. Hope you all have much to be grateful for.”

GENERAL HOSPITAL: Are You For or Against Kristina Being the Surrogate for TJ & Molly’s Baby Knowing the Storyline Implications Down the Road?

As many GH viewers have predicted, things have swung back around to Kristina (Kate Mansi) seemingly being the most viable option in Molly’s (Kristen Vaganos) mind to carry her and TJ’s (Tajh Bellow) baby as their surrogate.

If you recall, Kristina offered a few months back and was shut down by Molly, and then TJ, as the couple then went looking through agencies to find a surrogate to carry their baby to term. The surrogate they found, Andrea, told TJ she lost the baby in a miscarriage, which was confirmed by a doctor at Mercy Hospital, and she won’t go through trying to have a baby again. Leaving the couple devastated. But, is her story suspicious?

Last week on General Hospital, Molly was overwhelmed when having to look through a file to start the process of finding a surrogate and identifying the right candidate all over again and it brought her to tears. Kristina found her in the park, and that led the two to have a heart-to-heart conversation. While the two sisters have come to an agreement, now it comes to convincing TJ that this is the right move.


However, fans of the show can see how complex this will be for everyone down the line. If Kristina’s relationship with Blaze (Jacqueline Grace Lopez) moves further down the line, will she be so willing to give her sister the baby? Could there be an ugly court battle for the little one between two moms vs. TJ and Molly?  Will Kristina having their child, bring TJ and Kristina actually closer together, and cause rifts in Molly’s relationship with her man and her sister? What does the long-running soap opera have in store in the storyline by making Kristina the ultimate surrogate? Or, could Kristina lose the baby, only to find out that Andrea, the original surrogate has TJ and Molly’s child? So many possibilities.

Soap Opera Digest spoke to Kristen Vaganos on where Molly’s head is at with the situation. Vaganos shared, “I think there’s a little bit of desperation there, wanting to take a route that might be more trustworthy. (Surrogacy is) such a hard process to put trust and hope into because anything can happen. And Molly is a control freak! She wants to control as much as she can, so having a relative involved is, I think, comforting in a way.”

In terms of how Molly will re-approach TJ with Kristina being the prospective surrogate, Vaganos added, “Molly knows that it’s going to be an uphill battle, convincing him. Kristina’s track record with TJ is what it is. But it’s another leap of faith that Molly wants to take, and she just wants TJ to be on board with her. Plus, I think that TJ will really trust Molly’s opinion because Molly knows her better than anybody, and Molly would be the first person to doubt Kristina, to make sure to double-check her work. So if Molly says that she really feels strongly about this and thinks it’s the right decision, I think that’ll go a long way. I think TJ will take that to heart. But unless he’s on board with it, too, it’s a nonstarter.”

So, how do you see this playing out and what do you want to see? Are you in favor of Kristina being the surrogate for Molly and TJ’s baby? Are you for or against it, and what it could mean for long-term story implications? Share your thoughts and theories via the comment section below.
