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… Read more »

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!)

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!

Stars React to Alec Baldwin Fatally Shooting Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins & Injuring Director, Joel Souza, In Prop Gun Mishap On Set of ‘Rust’

UPDATED: Over the last 24 hours, the entertainment world has been stunned, by the horrific incident that took place on the set of the western drama Rust, while it was shooting scenes in New Mexico.

What is known is that Alec Baldwin (Ex-The Doctors, Knots Landing) discharged a prop gun that killed Director of Photography, Halyna Hutchins and injured director, Joel Souza.  The film also stars Frances Fisher (Ex-Edge of Night) and Jensen Ackles (Ex-Days of our Lives). Baldwin is also a producer on the film.

According to Variety, the prop gun contained a “live single round,” according to an email sent by IATSE Local 44 to its membership.

On Friday, Alec Baldwin made a statement via Twitter on his Hilaria and Alec Baldwin Foundation Twitter feed, expressing: “There are no words to convey my shock and sadness regarding the tragic accident that took the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and deeply admired colleague of ours. I’m fully cooperating with the police investigation to address how this tragedy occurred and am in touch with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son, and all who knew and loved Halyna.”

Yesterday, The Sante Fe Sheriff’s Departments originally shared that “Hutchins, 42, and Souza, 48 were shot when a prop firearm was discharged by Alec Baldwin.  Ms. Hutchins was transported, via helicopter, to University of New Mexico Hospital where she was pronounced dead by medical personnel. Mr. Souza was transported by ambulance to Christus St. Vincent Regional Medical center where he was undergoing treatment for his injuries. This investigation remains open and active. No charges have been filed in regard to this incident. Witnesses continue to be interviewed by detectives.”

This morning, Frances Fisher revealed in a twitter conversation with Patricia Arquette, that director Joel Souza had been released from the hospital.  Meanwhile, photographs of a distraught Baldwin emerged following the shooting.

The news of the Baldwin prop gun incident, isn’t the first time something like this has happened. Jon-Erik Hexum was killed on October 18, 1984, on the set of the TV show Cover Up when he accidentally shot himself in the head with a gun loaded with blanks. Then, in 1993, Brandon Lee, the son of martial arts legend Bruce Lee, died from a prop gun accident on the set of The Crow by a cast member.

As the news made its way through the entertainment community and mainstream news, several soap stars shared their reactions to the fatal shooting accident.

General Hospital’s Jon Lindstrom (Kevin/Ryan) expressed: “Feeling so sad for everyone involved in the tragedy on the #RustMovie set. I do know the film was staffed with experienced, thoughtful professionals. Please, let’s wait until we have the facts. Nothing positive will come from passing judgement or casting aspersions before then.”

General Hospital and Dynasty’s Emma Samms (Holly, Fallon) shared on her friend Jon-Erik Hexum’s death: This AWFUL tragedy on #Rust is unfathomable to me. If all on-set protocols were being adhered to, how, on earth, could it have happened? After what happened to Brandon Lee and my dear friend Jon-Erik Hexam, the firearm protocols became incredibly strict. I was told (when I was with him at the hospital afterwards) that Jon-Erik had been working with a completely empty gun all morning. A blank (still very dangerous) was loaded and then immediately there was a delay. Exhausted, he was allowed to fall asleep – loaded gun in hand. hey woke him, but there was immediately another delay. Jon-Erik put the gun to his head, forgetting it now contained a blank, (because he had just woken up) and jokingly pulled the trigger. He was not the kind of person to play around with a loaded gun. #fortherecord”

We will continue to post reactions and update this story.

What are your thoughts on the fatal shooting on the set of Rust? Comment below.  How can this not happen again, so everyone is safe in this working environment when ‘dangerous’ props are called for or used to make a movie or a TV show?

Courtney Hope Gets Marriage Advice From Her Y&R Co-Stars Ahead of Her Wedding to GH’s Chad Duell

This weekend, The Young and the Restless Courtney Hope (Sally), is set to walk down the aisle and marry the love of her life, General Hospital’s Chad Duell (Michael).  The nuptials are to take place this Saturday, October 23rd according to the wedding planner Zola.

Ahead of the popular soap duo’s vows, Courtney asked some of her Y&R co-stars advice, but as their characters in a very cute Instagram video on The Young and the Restless IG account with the accompanying text: “Marriage advice you don’t normally hear… as told by the #YR stars 😉 A special thank you to our real-life bride-to-be @TheCourtneyHope for asking! 😂”

Participating are: Peter Bergman (Jack), Amelia Heinle (Victoria), Michelle Stafford (Phyllis), Mishael Morgan (Amanda), Christian LeBlanc (Michael, Eileen Davidson (Ashley), Elizabeth Hendrickson (Chloe), and Christel Khalil (Lily).

In terms of advice, Amelie Heinle told Hope, “As Victoria Newman, I would say that you need to marry a man that is not going to be around for very long, and especially if he has a lot of money.”

Christel Khalil offered up some Lily marital suggestions: “Don’t let your husband let you think that he’s dead and that you’ve slept with a ghost!”

As for Courtney and Chad, the couple had been dating for five years, and this past Valentine’s Day, they became engaged.

Please share your well-wishes to Courtney and Chad as they embark on their life together via the comment section below, and let us know what you think of the marital advice given to Hope from the citizens of Genoa City.  

You can check out the video below, and then take a look back at our interview with the duo on the red carpet back at the 46th annual Daytime Emmys Awards.
