Hallelujah! GH Welcomes Michael Easton Back To The Party: Watch The Promo!

Courtesy/ABC

The images you have been seeing on social media from a recent General Hospital promo shoot have all come together in a terrific new spot for the long-running ABC daytime drama series.

Set to Andy Grammer’s hit song, Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah) the cast of GH party on with balloons, smiles and sexy looks. But at the end of the promo, the series officially welcomes back Michael Easton and heralds his return on the upcoming Monday, March 21st episode!

During the video, the lyrics “I think I finally found my hallelujah. I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life. Now all my dreams are coming true, ya. I’ve been waiting for this moment,” are used over the cast images from the Grammer tune.  And when Easton arrives in the video, the song lyrics change to: “Good to be alive right about now.”

Watch the video featuring all of your GH favorites after the jump, and then let us know what you thought of it, and if you are looking forward to Easton’s arrival on March 21st!

Well from the promo, it doesnt look like ABC has ANY plans of canceling our beloved soap! Excellent!

su0000

I dunno for sure..
but when a soap gets canceled it happens with very little or no notice..

GH has good 4 years left ..

Omar
Omar

True to that..

At the rate GH is going, 4 years is way too generous..I was one to bitch and moan about Ron C. writing towards the end of his tenure, but the current writers are so worse for wear, that I prefer to tune in to a soap from Mexico instead of watching GH during my time off..I have life 4 episodes to see and have no interest..

I was SO wrong…Please bring Ron C. back…At least he was entertaining, cartoonish and all!!

ABC may not have any plans right now to cancel GH but if this promo is an indication of what TPTB think appeals to GH fans, they may not have a choice.

Hallelujah, the whole cast dancing around, waiting for this moment all my life, all my dreams coming true, because Michael Easton is back? Lol! Either Frank is delusional, or he’s just using his OLTL actor to mess with fans, which actually means he is delusional thinking that’s a good strategy.

Easton is someone of no consequence on GH. Silas was a flop and he was fired. He left GH and the ratings went up. Now everyone’s dancing and dreams are coming true because he’s back on GH?

This is utterly laughable.

This promo represents FV and NV’s “vision” for the show, and who it will feature: heavy on the Corinthi, “Julexis” and Jasam. Precisely the folks front and center for the last failed Sweeps period. “Julexis” wedding was a ratings dud, the Corinthi drive down ratings, Jasam are just a bore and have done nothing to spike ratings at all.

This vision is a failed vision, which I note did not feature Genie Francis or Becky Herbst. Herbst was expected to take the low ball offer and be marginalized, or refuse it and be gone. Genie may have lost interest, and said “no thanks to this,” since her most recent big scene was with a Snickers bar.

Because ABC brass had to step in and overrule FV on Herbst, it will probably have to step in and overrule him on this vision, which is a recipe for further ratings decline. As I said, these were the faces of sweeps, and sweeps flopped.

It is time for ABC to cut its losses with this failed vision and the poor set of decisions that create PR nightmares (trying to force Herbst out against the fans wishes). Calling Wendy Riche!!!!!!

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

I’m not sure I can agree with assigning the blame to Valentini (I think all of this could just as well be ABC’s vision, with Frank and the writers left to execute it—but I’d love to know for sure, and if anybody has insider knowledge, please please please please PLEASE share it), but I do absolutely agree that this whole episode points loud and clear to what a mess this show has become and how screwed up they (whoever “they” is–FV, ABC execs, the writers, whoever) have made things. I have no particular objection to Mr. Easton’s return (provided they write him an interesting, viable character this time), but as I wrote below, he wouldn’t even make my top 10 among departed actors whom the show should move heaven and earth to get back. I think about the money that’s going to his salary, and who else it might have gone to support in a return, and that’s when it does start to bother me that this is the route they’ve gone. And doing it with this much hoopla and fanfare, when other, more important returns (um, hello—Genie Francis, anyone?) pretty much went unheralded, really does highlight what’s wrong with the current “vision.” It’s a real pity. A few years ago the show seemed to be getting its act together (after the long, dark JFP/Guza years) and moving in a better direction, with more balance and more of an ensemble approach to the storytelling. Now we’re back to certain characters dominating, way too much mob (and mob glorification or justification) for my taste, and very little to spark interest outside of some excellent performances. It really is too bad.

That said, I wish Michael Easton the best of luck in the new role and just hope his character is not remotely connected to the mob. That would be something of a saving grace.

Tristan

It is more laughable than even you imagined, AJQ. According to DC, the GH cast was NOT told it was filming a promo to welcome back ME. They all thought it was a promo for GH, and not for FV’s pet actor on his 4th GH role. Wow! Way to engender a lot of jealousy now that the promo is out. FV’s agenda is so transparent. He couldn’t care less about GH. I am kind of floored he pulled that on this cast, already swelled with useless newbies!

Rebecca1
Rebecca1

AJQ I think you’re reading way too much into one promo. Michael Easton may not be a GH vet but he’s a SOAP vet…and a very popular one. There was a huge petition to get him rehired on GH, it obviously worked and this promo addresses his return. For those of us who care…and I am one of those who do…the promo works just fine. Love Easton and am hoping for his sake as well as the fans that this time around is a charm.

AJQ
AJQ

Tristan, I saw that. It was pretty obvious from just watching the promo that it was filmed as a general promo and then edited for Easton. Can you imagine the GH actors reaction now seeing it? They had them dancing around for Michael Easton? Lol! Like he’s anyone and he’s going to save them. Their lives must have been so empty with him gone, but HALLElUJAH! He’s back! They’re dreams are coming true! They’ve waited for this their whole lives!They have to be livid.

And Rebecca1, you can like Michael and be glad he’s back. The promo can work just fine for you as well. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s ridiculous. It doesn’t change that fact that Michael is way down the list, if even on the list of actors that mean anything to GH fans.

If the petition “worked,” it did so because it fit the narrative of Frank’s agenda. 14,000 fangirls sign a petition for a show that needs several million viewers to be successful. A petition signed to bring an actor back when his departure had no measurable negative effect on ratings, they have only been up since he’s gone, which means he has no impact.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Well AJQ, I AM a GH fan. And there are many GH fans who were upset to see Michael go and are happy that he’s back. And if you want to talk ridiculous…as you say…I think it’s ridiculous to think ANY executive is going to bring back any actor because he “has an agenda” or because he’s a friend , etc. If there’s any “agenda” it’s to keep his own job secure by attempting to increase the fan base and kerp the show on the air. Whether he’s successful or not, or for how long, time will tell. Shows come and go. Primetime shows get canceled left and right…very very good shows. Dollars…comes down to dollars.

I get that you’re annoyed because you’d rather have a GH vet back instead of Easton. There are a few I’d love to come back too. I love Scott, Lucy, Scorpio, Stefan. I wish AJ and Duke were still “alive.” Still, I’m thrilled Easton is back…I welcome new players to Port Charles, especially one I loved on OLTL. He’s an actor.. lol…how many GH actors are on other soaps now. Alot! That’s the fictitious world we live in…or get to visit. Might be a great character that opens up a whole new story.

And “fan girls” is a bit harsh. You seem discontent about the show much of the time, yet you must be a fan girl…or guy…to get so upset over casting.

None of us speak for everybody…so statements you make like Michael’s down the list of actors and he doesn’t mean anything to GH fans is inaccurate and presumptuous.

AJQ
AJQ

Rebecca1 I’ve given it some more thought and you’re right. Michael Easton is a huge star. Huge. GH fans love him and are eagerly waiting for his return. Certainly the cast wouldn’t be dancing around all giddy if it weren’t true. When he comes back, GH will immediately hit 3.5 million viewers and a 650K demo rating minimum I think. That’s the kind of impact a major star like Easton will have, that’s why the cast is so giddy, he’s going to save them.

And you’re right, Producers and executives never have favorites or personal agendas. That never plays into decisions. That was silly of me.

Can’t wait for Michael and his new character. All indications are that it will be awesome.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Well AJQ…the laugh’s on me! I was ready to thank you for your gracious reply…until a few short srentences in where I realized you were just spewing sarcasm. So fun! You’ve got an untapped talent…

Trophy Lady

Michael looks SOOOOO HOTTTTTT in this promo! Nothing like a good looking man in a nice suit! I’m so thrilled that he’s returning to GH!

Melissa
Melissa

Yeah, I thought he looked fantastic! A new more upscale look for him. The whole promo made me proud to be a GH fan!

Olivia
Olivia

Michael needs a hot love story that will melt our TV’s. It’s been a long time since he’s had that kind of story. Not since his John and Evangeline days has he had love scenes that would make you want to turn on a fan. (Smile). I would love for Renee Goldberry to visit Port Charles as ME’s character’s long lost lover, one can always hope.

Olivia
Olivia

I totally agree, he looks marvelous. He and Jordan would be a hot couple.

Trophy Lady
Trophy Lady

Of course, I absolutely agree with you, Olivia! I do wish Jordan would’ve been featured more in the promo. She was only shown once. Oh well, they can make up for that by putting Michael’s character and Jordan together on the show!

The Commissioner and the NEW HOT DOCTOR! Yeah, that sounds (and looks!) pretty good to me!

Olivia
Olivia

Michael is heading east to the NYC area, I hope he takes time to see Hamilton and say hi to an old friend, Renee Goldsberry.

Harry 1
Harry 1

Jordan already has two men after her, she doesn’t need another. Save Griffin for Lizzy.
At least she and her massive hair extensions were in the promo. There was nary a sight of Laura or Lizzy.

Trophy Lady
Trophy Lady

Maybe “Lizzy” should just be single for a while. She hasn’t tried that before, and I think now just may be the time for her to try something new. She has THREE KIDS to care for. I think she should just focus on them for a while.

As for Jordan, she has Andre after her — and he’s a BORE. Who is the other guy you speak of? But since you’ve mentioned that GORGEOUS Dr. Griffin, I think he’d look great with Jordan, too. But, let’s just be honest, Jordan is BEAUTIFUL and would look great on the arm of anyone.

So, with that being said, why not have Jordan in a triangle with both of the HOT DOCS at GH — Dr. Griffin AND ME’s character?! That would be smokin’ HOT! Good looking STUNNERS all around! Everyone WINS!

CeeCee
CeeCee

Port Charles is not in the NYC area, though. But, who’s Renee Goldsbury? Lol.

rebecca1
rebecca1

Harry…I think Andre and Anna are, and have been, interested in each other for a while. I’d be surprised if they dont explore that relationship. If they don’t, Easton with Anna would also be attractive.

Intersting how they threw Maxie and Griffin together today…another possible match.

Basically there’s no way of predicting because we’re just going on looks. It really depends on his personality and who his character REALLY is.

Trophy Lady
Trophy Lady

LOL, exactly, Cee Cee! EVERYONE knows who Renee Goldsberry is! If you’ve ever seen Michael Easton SHINE beyond belief, then you know EXACTLY who Renee Goldsberry is!

Olivia
Olivia

Port Charles is near nothing it’s a fictional town but Broadway is hor real. A superstar is what Michael calls Renee and think he would love to work with her again.

I just Michael to be in a really good story.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Oh, my gosh, Trophy Lady. I had completely forgotten about Renee as Evangeline. LOL. I did not put 2 and 2 together or assimilate the names…..my bad. NOOOOW, it makes sense.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

i will wait and see if they can write for ME’s ‘NEW’ character before i ease on down the road doing any happy dance…lol

Jason and Sam

really well done … outside of the obvious… it’s like they missed the mark on showcasing all their talent

welcome to the party : Michael Easton !

Curtis is hot, isn’t he? In a bad-boy-kinda-way.

Yeah, he is hot if he is leaning against the stove!

Shay

Here, here, Timmm….I also fail to see what all the fuss is about!!!! And CeeCee??? We’ve already established that math matters none when creating new characters—or their relationships to others—-at least in reference to logical considerations of chronology or birth.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I understand the chronological aspect on soaps….it is what it is.
But, as far as Curtis, I suppose it’s a matter of taste. I look at the whole body…facial features, shoulders, tapering waistline….Curtis is a good-looking guy!
Better looking than Dante; more appealing than Andre, who, may I add, all he has is an elegant wardrobe. This guy has no appeal, except for his medical degree? Tee-Hee.
Bye, love you guys.

Tristan
Tristan

Waaay too much Kelly Monaco. Is she supposed to be the star of the show, or are they telegraphing that Easton will be her new leading man?

CeeCee
CeeCee

Right, Tristan. Imagine that! Sam’s new leading man….about the same age as her daddy, Julian.
Let Sam have Jason. They are both seat-warmers, as far as I’m concerned…fillers.
Billy Miller has lost his charm when he lost Billy Abbott.

Makes me wonder if this was GH’s plan all along,”fire” Michael,kill off Silas,and then bring back Michael as a new character to try and boost ratings.

Elizabeth

No corporate entity would embark on such a chaotic strategy purposefully. Like much if not most of GH planning in the years since FV was made executive producer, this looks like cleaning up the dung on the floor. Just like with Becky Herbst, just like with Luke/Fluke/Puke, just like with the story disaster turning into the casting disaster of the OLTL three. Not ONE exec that has anything to do with this classic and at one time, marquis daytime drama deserves to keep their jobs with the show. And once again, AJQ hits the nail on the head. (Although I DO like Michale Easton and believe he was totally hosed last go ’round.)

CeeCee

Love your post.

Of Course I am so excited I have been waiting for this moment for a while . I knew he would be back and I was right. He is so the sexiest man on the show. And now I get to see him everyday Yea me. Michael We are so glad your ALIVE TOO yep I got the End of the Promo HINT Did everyone else well we will see. Welcome back Michael Easton . LONG TIME COMING.

Alexis and Julian look BEAUTIFUL 🙂 Love them, love this promo

Michael (not Fairman)
Michael (not Fairman)

Happy for all the ME fans out there, and I certainly don’t object to his being back (he can act, and his exit interview when Silas was killed off showed what a truly classy and humble guy he is–a certain recently departed Big Star might take a lesson). But I’m struck, as I watch all this hoopla, with the observation that if I were compiling a list of actors GH has let go who absolutely needed to be brought back, he wouldn’t even make my top 10.

At least if they’re going to do this, let’s all hope that they write him a character worth having around this time. Silas, through no particular fault of ME, was pretty much a total bust.

Julie Lomoe
Julie Lomoe

I’m delighted they’re bringing Michael back, and I agree with you about the Silas character. Michael’s interview in Soaps in Depth was very telling in this regard. He was very circumspect and diplomatic yet candid about why the Silas role was so uninspiring. I’ve been blogging about Silas’s death and Michael’s resurrection ever since last July.

Amy
Amy

Love the promo!!!! Gotta a feeling ME is going to nail it! Best part no Liz!!!!! Do not care for her or her nasty fan base of bullies!!! Love the promo! Killy looks hot!!! Bring it GH!!!

Steph
Steph

Killy look awesome…

Harry 1
Harry 1

Amy, and I do not care for the Rebecca bashing–it goes both ways.
What these idiotic fans do not understand is that Rebecca and “Killy” are dear friends in real life. This is the most senseless and idiotic war between fan bases and neither actress enjoys it or participates it.
The reason Rebecca Herbst as Lizzy is not in the promo is that it was filmed while contract negotiations were still pending. So you can stop rubbing your hands with malevolent glee over the fact that there is no Lizzy in the promo as it doesn’t mean anything. Our ethereally lovely and eternally youthful Lizzy is still alive and well and hopefully is about to embark upon a new romance.

Tristan
Tristan

Thank you, Harry, on behalf of Liz fans.

Rodd
Rodd

I find some of the combos interesting. Why is Franco dancing with Carly and not Nena? I didn’t see Elizabeth? Was this shot while they were in contract negotiations? What about Laura, Tracy, Monica, Hayden, Epiphany, Mac and Felicia, Ava or Andre? Dear heavens, they had more than enough shots of Sam. They could have replaced most to includes these other characters.

I know, gripe, gripe, gripe. But seriously, I am just happy to see ANY promo the network provides. This one was far better than some.

Welcome back, Michael!

Rodd
Rodd

Oh, I blinked and missed Hayden. I replayed it several times and saw her with Julian. (?) Huh?

Aria
Aria

Gripe gripe gripe yet your still right about Sam, lol, maybe there’s another version that includes all those excluded just so they could show Sam 100 times.

Patrick
Patrick

yeah, they could have managed to fit who you mentioned… somewhere…

and yeah ! gripe, i’m griping, big gripe

was this a subliminal message that Kelly Monaco… IS top draw… enigmatic… and yeah, she’s cute – IN A DRESS – hear that ? and she’s smiling… and the big plus… she isn’t speaking…. so… I gather… it’s all centered around 3 couples

Jason and Sam
Sonny and Carly
Julian and Alexis

???? argh! REALLY ?

I look at hyour list Rodd of what’s left off… I stand with my fellow long time viewers whod agree that who you stated should be the most featured.

Liz, Laura, Tracy, Monida, Hayden, Epiphany, Mac, Felicia, Ava, Andre, plus

OK no more sour grapes

Vicki
Vicki

Great promo! GH really messed up when they brought on the 3 OLTL characters in 2013, and bringing the sexy Michael Easton back in a new character has set the ship straight again! Sam belonging with Jason, Sonny with Carly, etc. And Michael’s even wearing a color other than black!! Now that is a big step forward.

Looking forward to Michael’s new character unfold. Sure wish GH would bring on Melissa Archer though!

Beth
Beth

In agreement Vicki! I have a feeling those two would knock it out of the park. In fact I know they would!

Tina

Agreed! Michael and Melissa are awesome together!

Seeing those two together again would be fantastic

Seeing those two together again would be fantastic. Would love to see their interaction again.

Aria

The cast looked great especially my new fave griffin and Nathan, Finola as well . But the promo is to welcome Michael back and it felt a bit to much if you ask me not because he’s not worth it but it looks like overkill something one would do out of guilt, for firing him in the first place . If the show was promoting something else then it would make more sense . Regardless, welcome back Michael, and hallelujah !!!

rebecca1
rebecca1

I think it’s to appease the fans. As you know there were alot who signed a petition to bring him back, so I guess this is their way of addressing that collective effort.

Aria

Michael Easton and Rebecca Herbts are the only two stars in recent memory that the show has fired and then rehired because of fans outrage and It’s good to know our collective voice were heard.

I enjoyed the pairings shown. I believe it would have been nice to showcase more of the cast.

Steph

I hope Michael does well and that the writing improves. The couples shown in the promo were obviously no accident. Sam does belong with Jason and Julexis belong together . In saying that I hope they develop Michael’s character well and certainly hope Melissa Archer joins GH. Would love her as Sarah Webber and interacting with Michael Easton again. Great partners!

Jenn

OMG that would be wonderful.

CeeCee

I think Dr. Mayes would be perfect for Alexis. Both professionals and all.

Harry 1
Harry 1

Dr Mayes with Alexis? Bah! The very idea has me chucking.
Honestly, I would like him to be paired up with Tracy. He reminds me so much of Edward the way he barks out orders and reams people a new one every time they so much as look at him the wrong way.
Tracy has always had a Daddy complex–why not marry the old bastard and they can have a new cantankerous grouch in the Q mansion?

Timmm
Timmm

I agree Steph, who the hell misses Snorebrina and CARRRRRRLOS, cut them, hire Melissa and her and Michael would be magic AGAIN!

Sounds great to me!

Mister Media

The cast members look spectacular in this promo, which was fun to watch. I’d love to see some of this energy (and styling & wardrobe) on the actual show. I’m glad Michael Easton is back and am interested in what his new role will entail. Long live GH!

Melissa
Melissa

I couldn’t agree more. If the production values of this promo could be brought to GH that would be amazing! I have no quibble with the wardrobe, but the sets are getting tired and boring. Give Griffin a home asap. Make sure Michael Easton’s new character has an apartment at the outset. Have Dante and Lulu move into a new space. Build a new home for Elizabeth with her insurance money. Not everyone can live at Wyndemere or Metro Court. Metro Court, in particular, has been used to DEATH as a residence. Who in the world has the money to live in an expensive hotel semi-permanently? Cheap budgets have kept characters in generic hotel rooms FOREVER. And, btw, where are people like Olivia, Jordan, Curtis and Andre living? You only ever see them at work, in public or in other people’s homes. That where Bobbie’s Brownstone was a brilliant invention. One building that could house multiple apartments with a core family living in it. Whatever happened to the rehabbed Brownstone that Morgan and Kiki were working on? C’mon GH, invest a little in the scenery. It will likely return to you three-fold in increased viewership.

Shay
Shay

That makes perfect sense, Melissa. Although, as co-owner of the MetroCourt, I can understand Olivia making the hotel her residence. As for Jordan, since she’s nearly always been on the government payroll, one way or another, she’s not footing the bill for her digs…..typical bureaucrat, making John Q. Public responsible for her living expenses. LOL.

CeeCee
CeeCee

I agree…everyone looked smashing…
We got to see what a fine figure Michael cuts ( this from Fiona, my Gran…lol), and Sam …..finally showing off her near-perfect body with something other than black and white garb.

Shay
Shay

Well, “everybody’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man,” CeeCee! It’s a multi-generational thing….I love it, too. The shorter coif and facial hair, not so much, though. I’ve always gone for ME’s unique signature look of the long locks and I do prefer him clean shaven…..he has such an interesting, timeless face, I rather appreciate him more when he has that “blank canvas” where I can imagine him from all sorts of various eras. Regardless, I welcome him back to GH!

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Shay.
Hiya, Shay…
I know, and I agree. I loved Michael’s longer ‘locks’ myself….and I definitely do not like facial hair on him. Yes, I am glad he’s back as well, but as a much more sophisticated personality than Silas….with a dash of mystery.

Shay
Shay

Oh yes, CeeCee, it will be a delight to have a “sophisticated gent” on the GH canvas for a change….such characters were once a soap opera staple, and now all we seem to get in Port Charles are mobsters, thugs, some lame law enforcers and more mobsters….I’m hoping ME’s addition will portend a new direction toward a more elegant population of professional males.

Mister Media
Mister Media

I kept trying to figure out why I liked this promo so much and just realized – it’s because these beautiful people are SMILING. I guess that doesn’t happen so much on the show.

hi Mister Media-
Unless I missed it- there has not been one humorous moment in GH is 6 months,,
I do not recall me having a chuckle, a laugh, a snicker, a fun moment, a WOW moment, in 6 months.. I haven’t even had a smile from joy.
GH is total morbid and stale, no longer fun to watch.. 🙁

((I miss the many laughs RC gave and the shocker WOW moments, it was entertaining and fun, a good time watching,, I miss that..

Fantastic news! Just eight more days to go. I blogged about Michael’s return and found up a contest for the best guesses as to what kind of character he’d play. Google my name and that should get you there. I’m guessing this will be his new look? I like him with longer hair, but he’s gorgeous anyway.

Patricia Nolan-Hall (Caftan Woman)

I’ve been watching soaps most of my life and you can’t do that without being an optimist. I’ve always enjoyed Easton’s performances and hope they have come up with something he can really work with in the new character.

Sara

Melissa Archer needs to come to GH as Sara Webber.

Mari
Mari

Yes she does! It is time!

Elizabeth
Elizabeth

Rebecca Budig should have been brought on as Sara Webber. They could have written the exact same story as now with her and the tension between her and Elizabeth would have been significant and meaningful. THIS is one of the biggest problems that the show has, foolish and impetuous casting decisions.

Harry 1
Harry 1

Rebecca Budig should have come on as Sylvia Plath. Cannot stand that character.

Oh, yes!! Michael would be complete with Melissa….and, vice versa. If only…..

Tina

Agree Mari. Michael and Melissa were wonderful

Deb

Melissa Archer all the way!

Elizabeth

The cast already needs to be cut by about 25%. They need another actor from OLTL like they need the plague to hit the cast.

Tina

So agree with the above posters. Michael and Melissa were and would be awesome!

Shay

Great one there, Harry1…..I also cannot stand Hayden! As for the breathless calls for casting more soap opera refugees/newbies???? Until GH gets rid of its already too many failed experiments using that same worn out formula, there is no need for any new characters….just a good spring canvas cleaning!!!!!

Jay Trotter
Jay Trotter

Loved it!

This is one of the better enjoyable GH promos in ages and features the majority of the cast mingling around but of course some only focus on the very end with Easton cause they have to put a negative spin on everything. I have really missed fun light promos like this from all soaps and the showcasing of so many actors out of character for a change. Easton appeared in the final few seconds of the video and it is good business sense on FV’s part cause he’s very well known to ABC daytime viewers. He is just trying to hook some of the casual viewers by letting them know he is back cause those who followed him from OLTL may have left GH when Silas was killed off. I know that the viewership has improved a lot since Silas was killed off but that has everything to do with the writing change cause GH feels like a real drama series again instead of a cartoonish outlandish farce.

Chrystie_Delancey
Chrystie_Delancey

More like the Kelly Monaco show. Good for Michael to be gainfully employed again.

Once again, Rebecca Herbst gets the shaft. I did not see her, but saw TOO much of Kelly Monaco.

scott

I think Hayden is either Julian’s daughter making her Sam and Lucas’ Sister…or she’s Victor Jerome’s daughter, making her Ava and Julian’s sister…..that would be a combo of a Cassidine and Jerome (Nic and Rachel/Hayden)……

That’s a good premise, Scott. But, how does that explain her familial interest in Tracy?

Michael E. Knight Joins General Hospital

Suffice to say, this is one piece of casting news that made us very happy to hear! General Hospital has cast multi-Daytime Emmy winner, and beloved All My Children favorite, Michael E. Knight in a mystery role on the ABC soap.

Knight, who played Pine Valley’s Tad Martin on and off from 1982 to 2011 on ABC’s All My Children, will begin taping scenes soon when GH returns from its mid-summer production break.

As to who will Michael play? That is being kept under-wraps.  But Knight’s new GH castmate and his former AMC castmate, James Patrick Stuart (Valentin) enthused on the announcement: “I am thrilled, are you kidding me? I love that guy. He’s excited, too; it’s been a while for him. It’s going to be really fun to have him on my turf. I would love to share scenes with him.”

Soap viewers last saw Knight in his role as Dr Simon Neville on The Young and the Restless back in 2015.

So who do you think Michael will play on the GH canvas?  Could he reprise Tad but in Port Charles, since ABC has the rights now to the characters from AMC and OLTL? Stay tuned.

Excited by the news of Michael to GH? Comment below.

Cassandra James Set To Appear in Second Season Of GH Alum Vinessa Antoine’s ‘Diggstown’

In another exciting bit of casting on the Canadian drama series, Diggstown, General Hospital’s Cassandra James (Dr, Terry Randolph) will soon be seen alongside former GH star, Vinessa Antoine in the second season of the CBC series.

Cassandra first announced the news on her Twitter, expressing “Surprise! “Shooting DIGGSTOWN with my GH sister Vinessa Antoine.”

Antoine responded in kind sharing a photo fo the two together on the set of the show relating: “Just a couple of gals making history.  First black person to lead a dramatic show in Canada and first trans woman on a soap together. Wow! Welcome, sister. So proud to have you here.”

On GH, Vinessa exited her role of Jordan Ashford back in September of 2018, and was later replaced by Briana Nicole Henry, after making Canadian TV history when she landed the lead role of Marcie Diggs on Diggstown.  James first came onto the Port Charles canvas as Liz’s childhood friend, back in June of 2018.

Now shooting Diggstown’s second season, no details yet on what role Cassandra will play, or when her episode will air, but MFTV will keep you posted when that Intel becomes available for Canadian fans, and how U.S. fans may be able to view it.

So, what do you think of Cassandra and Vinessa appearing together on Diggstown? Would you like to see more of Cassandra on GH? Missing Vinessa Antoine? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
