In a very big show of support for his long time colleagues at One Life to Live, Michael Easton (formerly John McBain on OLTL and GH) posted a short but sweet message on his facebook page just a few hours ago, which interpreted means he is sending his thoughts and well-wishes for everyone involved in the One Life to Live and All My Children reboots which return in their new online home on this morning!

Easton posted the following message:  “SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS… to my family of friends in their new venture. I know you’re going to be a big hit…”

As previously reported and known, Easton will return to General Hospital on air on May 10th in an unknown role at this time.  

So what do you think about Easton’s comments?  A class-act, indeed?  Do you still wish Michael was part of the One Life reboot?  Let us know!

Another absolute class and he has a great name, just sayin’!

What a wonderful human being, He is such a class act, and we are blessed to enjoy his talent on any show.

I agree

I couldn’t agree more on his classiness!! While McBain will be missed; I am glad that he will be back on GH 5/10….just hope it is in a role that continues to show off his talents and class.

A class act! I love Michael Easton & eagerly await his return to GH.

ME belongs on GH, now.. It is a great home for him..
I can not see him on OL not after watching it this morning,,
(( and OL was way more than awesome!!!

He truly is a class act. I am so loving the fact he will be on GH.

Class act! Can’t wait until he returns to GH!

What a classy guy…to bad certain soap fans were more like him. And im talking about the anti GH ones who hope M.E.s show gets cancelled just to prove a point instead of wishing him success with his new character on GH. These anti GH people complain ABC not supporting the soap genre are doing the same when they hope the show gets cancelled.

I didnt mind the vampire story like some…he can be a vampire again and bite me anytime! lol

lol i agree

I’ve always wanted him to return to the town of Port Charles, as vampire Caleb Morley!!!

A very nice comment to write. I hope he reconsiders appearing on OLTL. I believe it would be a good move for him, OLTL as well as the fans.

I really like Michael. He has always been a class act and this just shows it. I am sad that he won’t he won’t be reprising John McBain on either show but I am happy to see him back with GH. Oh and let’s not forget that he is HOT. 🙂

Just finished watching the online debut of OLTL & AMC and I must say, I’m high as a kite! It was perfectly done, suspenseful & intriguing and I can’t wait to see how well it grows.

No, I think he was the first complain bag not wanting to even go do a cameo! Not that I miss him either he drags all the women down on each show he is on! I am liking Nathalie cause she has grown a brain again!

I think bringing the three back on GH with different character profiles will be the biggest mistake Valentini has done! remember they tried that with Anthony Geary and it did not work!

I hope Roger will be back on OLTL next season! He Erika and Robin are needed on the show it is so clear!


Roger IS the real Todd.

Roger will be returning to GH as a new character so NO he is not the real Todd. The title is for TSJ and always has been.

kristen alderson and micheal easton can stay on GH as the OLTL characters I am cheering that they are not on OLTL and I already have deleted GH from my PVR.

I love GH but Valentini’s childish behavior has annoyed me so much!

He is bitter and biased and its clear!

Love Michael Easton; what a classy guy!! Can’t wait to have you back on GH where you belong; you’ve been sorely missed.

Has always come across as a very classy gentleman and once again he pulled through.

I have always like him from day one on OLTL! He is a sweetie! Will miss him on OLTL!

Love Michael, always a class act!! Won’t watch him on GH, miss my JOLIE!!

Michael you are a class act. Can’t wait to see you on GH.

He could not even mention “One Life To Live” by name in his Facebook post? I do not think that was classy at all. He was on OLTL for years, and this post is not very impressive. I think it was very classy of RH to work out a deal to work on OLTL for a few weeks and then return to GH. ME and KA did not do this. How big of a deal would it have been for these actors to travel to CT for a few weeks? It was not like they were being deployed overseas! I tried to watch GH when OLTL ended. I could not get into it especially with ME and Kelly Monaco staring at each other saying they knew each other in another life – boring. I hope that PP recasts Starr with a better actress. I think the new OLTL will be a complete success. GH may be surpriesed at how many viewers abandon ship now that OLTL is back…

Completely agree!!!!

Im not abandoning GH…why would some of us when OLTL can be seen anytime and isnt opposite…you dont like it dont watch…me im supporting the genre we fought so hard to keep, and showing support no matter what soap we like or dislike is what a TRUE soap fan does!

Personally, not in any hurry to go home and watch GH every night. Bores me. Only waiting for Roger to come back in his new role.

I only watched OLTL to see ME so I’m glad he will be in the town of Port Charles once again, where he was before OL

Definitely classy. I expect nothing less from him. I truly hope he and the other two Llanview transplants got what they wanted out of this whole debacle. I will watch both OLTL and GH (and AMC, Days…) no matter what. I want to show my support for the actors and the genre – I don’t care what kind of crap those in higher positions pull. I will support my actors and my shows…they are worthy.
Thank you Michael. (Easton AND Fairman!)

Michael is a class act. Looking forward to his return in May on GH.

i like him on general hospital but also on one life to live with natalie i hope he changes his mind just like jason on another soap i watched him and didnt like his role thought boring hes the only john and jason is the only jason they like to have a change but at this time john can play to roles hes good and jason needs to go back to general hospital sorry dont like his new role at all. good luck though on both actors i will continue to watch general hospital and one life to live are my favorites also now i thank prospect park to have the all my children and one life to live back on abc you were nuts to dis continue your new shows are boring to much reality and talk shows your loss when you cancelled two great all time soaps you cancel general hospital us fans may boycott again.

So what if he didn’t? At least has class enough to wish them well! I’ve always liked him

Both AMC and OLTL full episodes of the reboots appeared on UTUBE but pulled off a short time later…a few got to watch it!

Michael Easton needs to be back on OLTL. I don’t like General Hospital and believe him and Natalie belong together.

Mr. Easton is a classy guy. Mr. Fairman I hope you will interview him soon. 🙂

ME is the best and I can’t wait to see him again on GH. ME has moved on and will continue to soar and astound us with his acting choices and prowess. I wish nothing but the best for ME and his family. What a stand up and classy guy!

yes i wish michael was still part of oltl i am going to miss him and nat togather with baby liam

i was glad to see tervor st john back yes roger will be the only todd manning for me

A nice, kind gesture from Michael to his former co-stars. I’m sure they very much appreciated it. I for one am extremely glad that he’s returning to GH. I am looking forward to his new character and hope there is a romantic future ahead with Kelly Monaco’s Sam. Love those two together!


i’ve missed Roger, Kristen and Michael.

what have Kristen and Michael (Easton) been up to since they’ve been off GH? anyone know?

The character that Michael Easton played on One Life to Live was exciting and colorful and always made the story line interesting, he will be missed by fans like me and I wish him well at GH although I am not a fan of that soap, I did watch it some after the cancellation of OLTL but with its return to online I don’t think I will be able to watch both shows, I hope he might leave the door open for returning in the future…best wishes…

I really do wish him luck. I watch GH and I watch One life to live what every make him happy I will always follow him

Love him on both show
I will follow that men in any thing he do. What every he wants to do
I will love it.

Michael Easton is such a classy guy and happy that he’s staying on GH as John McBain. Oltl was his home for many years, but to bring him back as a different character just wouldn’t be the same. Love you Michael (my soap hunk crush!)

Yes, Michael Easton has left his mark on the character John. Attempting to bring someone else in the play the role would be like recasting the roles of Vickie, Bo, or Dorian.

I was hoping so much that Michael Easton would return to OLTL and continue
his relationship with Natalie and their son. They were one of my favorite couples.
The show ended so quickly and there were so many things just left dangling in
the end. I wish he would come back!

Bryan Craig Wishes General Hospital’s Maurice Benard ‘Happy Father’s Day’; Is He Trolling Us … or is This the Ultimate Return Tease?

Sunday is Father’s Day, and it’s the time when many soap stars and celebrities take to social media to give love and shout outs to their dads.

In an another post that got General Hospital fans to take notice, two-time Daytime Emmy-winner Bryan Craig (ex-Morgan Corinthos) dropped a blast from the past photo of himself alongside Maurice Benard (Sonny). Accompanying the photo, Bryan wrote: ‘Happy Father’s Day” Maurice Benard.

The post on X comes on the heels of a previous response by Craig to a post on Frank Valentini’s (executive producer, General Hospital) comment to On the Red Carpet, where he revealed that this summer, “A former cast member is coming back. And I think that the audience will go crazy for HIM.” In response, Craig teased, “Who could it be…”

Now on Sunday responses to Craig’s post were met with varied responses from GH fans from “Stop playing with us” to “Now you’re just trolling us, lol. We really need you back right now.”  Still others took it as a potential confirmation that Craig is the mystery man on his way back to General Hospital stating, “I hope you’re going to back to GH!” to “Can’t wait!”

Craig last appeared on GH from 2013-2016 and made a brief return in 2018. Since departing GH, Bryan has appeared in numerous TV and film projects including: Freeform’s Good Trouble and ABC’s Grand Hotel.

So, is Bryan Craig yanking GH viewers chain, or is he slyly teasing us, because he knows he is the one returning to the ABC soap opera? Weigh-in on your theories below.

GH’s Evan Hofer Talks Life for Dex After Sonny’s Beatdown, Giovanni Mazza, and If Josslyn is Love Endgame

General Hospital’s Dex Heller (Evan Hofer) has been at the epicenter of Sonny Corinthos’ (Maurice Benard) paranoia, which led to the beatdown of Sonny’s former right hand man.

Now, Dex is licking his wounds, and trying to move on with his life after joining the PCPD; following attempting to move away from working for the mob and under Sonny’s thumb. Problem is, Dex has a soft spot for Sonny. Meanwhile, looks like there still may be a future for Dex and Josslyn (Eden McCoy) as the two are trying to mend their once-fractured relationship.

Michael Fairman TV caught up with Evan Hofer at the 51st annual Daytime Creative Arts and Lifestyle Emmys (in which Hofer was a presenter during the ceremonies), to discuss the current life and times of his Port Charles alter-ego.

Evan has now gotten to see and feel first-hand what is like working in soaps and television, when you have to wear prosthetics on your face after Sonny accosted Dex at Brook Lynn and Chase’s wedding reception.

Hofer recalled the experience. “Our makeup team is incredible. Priscilla, my makeup artist is just so talented. She layered silicone every day so she could control the swelling, so that way, she would have control over how it looked as it progressed and, you know, decreased, increased,” Hofer revealed. “She was incredible and very, very detailed.”

Paying a nod to actors who have to take on TV or movie roles where they have to wear complete facial prosthetics, Evan shared, “I do not envy people who wear full face prosthetics. I think my longest tape day was probably seven hours in it. I got a little claustrophobic. It does cause you to have a lack of of depth perception, which is a rough one.”

Hofer weighed-in on if he thinks Dex will ever turn in Sonny and press charges against him for his character’s recent beatdown. “I hope he doesn’t. It’s hard though, because he loves him (Sonny) and that’s the problem,” stated Evan. “That’s what we do with people we love. It’s almost an abusive parent relationship, isn’t it? I have this theory that Dex almost feels like he deserves these things.”

Now might be the time for the GH writers to explore more of Dex’s backstory which could include a backstory of abuse. “I really would love them to. I think it’d be incredible,” hoped Evan. However, he added, “I’m just grateful for whatever I get to do every day and excited for whatever story we get to tell.  Something like The Departed – undercover with the mob- would be cool (for a storyline), and then everybody’s wondering which side I’m on the whole time.”

Is there hope for Dex and Josslyn fans that they will still may be each other’s love endgame? Hofer teased, “I think they start spending a little more time together, but who knows what’ll happen. You never know on a soap opera. Maybe Dex’s evil twin will show up and steal Josslyn away.”

A few months back, Evan shared some major scenes with the one and only Finola Hughes (Anna). In story, Dex admits he was going to kill Cyrus on Sonny’s orders. Hofer shared it was a big moment for him since his time being on GH. “What an honor to get to do those scenes with Finola. I had only worked with her once before and that was when Dex broke her out of prison and he got shot the first time,” recalls Hofer. “She’s all about working the scenes ahead of time, which I am, too. We got to get a lot of reps in and when we get up there on stage, she’s incredibly affecting. I’ll kind of have an idea of maybe of how the scene will go, and then I’ll just look in her eyes and suddenly I am just so in a different space that she’s pulled me into. In those scenes, having Dex feel like someone cares about him was really beautiful.”

Recently, Giovanni Mazza premiered as Gio. In Hofer’s first on-screen scenes with Mazza, the two talk about Gio’s dad having been in the military and Dex’s experience in the Army and serving in Afghanistan.

This raised some GH viewers eyebrows to what if the two characters could somehow be related? Perhaps, brothers? Evan responded to those inquiring minds, “Oh, I don’t know. We look pretty alike. There is the military connection. I think it’ll be interesting. Those first scenes we had together were incredible. I was so excited to work with Geo. He couldn’t be any nicer really. He’s an incredible person. He’s so easy to be around. We hang out outside of work all the time, already.”

Photo: JPI

Does Evan think there will come a day where Jason (Steve Burton), Dex and Sonny will all be working together on the same side, and thus, Sonny will have both his former henchman at his disposal?  While Hofer doesn’t know what’s coming down the pike, he expressed, “It’s been incredible to have Steve around. He’s a really wonderful man. I’d only met him on Zoom previously to him coming back.  I hope we get to work together more. We got one batch of scenes together and I hope we get to do more soon.”

Photo: ABC

As to what GH viewers should be on the lookout for in the weeks ahead, Evan teased, “We’ll see what Joss and Dex get into, and we’ll see what happens within the police department.”

So, are you rooting for Dex and Joss? Do you want Dex back working for Sonny, or hope he stays with the PCPD? Would you want to see more of Dex’s backstory explored? Comment below.
