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 Hulu.com 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!

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.

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.

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 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!

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!

Annie

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.

Audrina

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

CTwildheart

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!)

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!

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…

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!

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

GH’s Steve Burton and Maurice Benard Deliver “The Power Performance of the Week”

Last week, as General Hospital aired the final episodes they had in the can, prior to the coronavirus TV production shutdown, viewers of the series were left with a one-two punch of gut-wrenching performances from Daytime Emmy winners, Steve Burton (Jason) and Maurice Benard (Sonny)

Burton, also received great news last week, when he found out he was again Emmy-nominated in the Lead Actor in a Drama Series category, while Benard, told fans he did not submit himself in the competition this year, when they were wondering where his name was in the list of the finalists in the category.  However, Maurice won last year for the second time in his career, for Outstanding Lead Actor.

Now on last Tuesday and Wednesday’s episode of the ABC daytime drama series, Jason was trying his best to break it to Sonny that Sonny’s dad, Mike (Max Gail) is not going to get any better as he continues to decline from Alzheimer’s disease, and that Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.  Sonny is devastated sitting with Mike watching him being completely unresponsive.  He tell Mike he will be back to see him tomorrow, as he leaves Mike reaches out his hand slowly.

Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) has just told Jason that she believes the signs are all there that Mike is on his final decline and battle with Alzheimers. Mike is unresponsive, not eating. and slipping away quickly. She believes he wants to let go, but is holding on for Sonny’s sake, something that tears through Jason.  Knowing Jason was told something by Elizabeth, Sonny asks what it is.  That is when Jason tells Sonny he thinks Mike is waiting for Sonny to let him go.

An overcome Sonny tells Jason that he worries that Mike might still want to fight, but for what? He is a shell of himself and has no memories.  It is then that Burton as Jason, in a touching performance, tells Sonny what he’d want if he were in Mike’s place. Jason reflect that he wouldn’t want machines keeping him alive or his kids having to go through what Sonny is having to deal with right now   Jason goes on to say that even when Sonny put walls up between himself and Mike through the years, that Mike never stopped trying to break them down.

Once Jason leaves, with tears running down his cheeks, Sonny sits with Mike trying to come to terms with what he must do now.  Will Sonny let Mike die and spare his father any further misery … or will he try to prolong whatever time Mike has left?
