Michael Easton's New GH Character Name Is …. Hamilton Finn!

Savvy General Hospital viewers got a bit of unexpected intel during Friday’s credits of the ABC daytime drama series.

As the show rolled the credits of the cast in the lower-third of viewers TV or computer screens, Michael Easton was credited as appearing in the episode as “Hamilton Finn”, even though he was not in it.

Thus, viewers learned an episode early that Hamilton Finn is the name of Easton’s highly-anticipated character.   The popular actor, who is returning in a new incarnation following being killed off as Dr. Silas Clay, will make his official return on Monday’s March 21st installment of GH.  It had been previously reported that Easton will play another doctor.  Fans should find out soon just what type of doctor Hamilton Finn is!

Speculation making the rounds is that because all GH episodes got pushed back one today from their original airdate, starting with the March 11th episode due to ABC’s preemption for the funeral of former first lady Nancy Reagan, that perhaps the credits did not get switched to match it.

Meanwhile, as soon as social media got wind that Easton’s new character would be named “Hamilton Finn”, even a new Twitter page for the character went up under the handle @DrFinnGH

On Michael Easton’s official facebook page it reveals the the fan favorite’s first three episodes back to the General Hospital will air March 21, 22, and 23.

I really don’t care what his characters name is I’m just so happy Michael Easton is back. Although the name is really cool. Welcome back Michael!!!

Love that ME is back! Wished he was a Cassidine but I am overjoyed to have one of my all time favorites back on my screen!

He could still be a Cassadine 🙂

I really wanted his name to be Cassidine !
But– Hamilton Finn is cool, I only hope the character will be too.
He best be a bad boy, an exciting guy, a dark mysterious man…the kind I wanna hate&love and tame! 😉
I really wish that easton can bring new viewers, and take care of this;

MAR 12, 2016 ..
ABC Daytime’s General Hospital shed 30,000 total viewers over the previous week and was down 304,000 compared with last year.
GH averaged a 2.17 in households.

I’m counting on Easton/Hamilton to give GH a very badly needed boost of intrigue and suspense ..
Looking forward to checking out the new Doctor..

Maybe his name isnt really Hamilton Finn…maybe its really Huckleberry Finn Cassidine and he and best friend Tom Sawyer Hardy will go on many adventures together…lol

I can live with the name. I’m just glad Michael Easton is back!

Or he could actually be that Valentine Cassidine that Helena was so afraid of.

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

That’s what several of us said who we wanted him to be under a previous posting…still could happen?

With all due respect, that Valentin Cassadine thing everyone brings up whenever a new male character/new actor enters the scene was from like five head writers ago. Its not happening that storyline.

Its like Julian Jerome meeting a guy in a van during a witness protection
program transfer who looked just like Luke. Clearly that was Bill Eckert, but then when fans online guessed that, Carlivati switched gears and made Luke have a split personality instead.

Or its like the time Helena slit open the lining on the back of an old painting and found an envelope. There was supposed to be some great mystery in the envelope the painting contained. It was never followed up on.

Or how about when Stefan Cassadine thought he knew Jax’s first wife Miranda from somewhere. But then that actress left the show and that storyline was never again mentioned.

Or early in Alexis’ entree into the series where she was writing a letter to a mystery person she called “my love.” That storyline was never followed up on, either. I always chalked that one up to her writing the daughter she long ago gave up for adoption, but we were years from knowing that Sam was that child or that Alexis had given up a baby upon birth. If I recall correctly, we didn’t even know yet Alexis was Mikkos’s illegitimate child; we were told she was a cousin whose parents had died.

Or course nothing compares to the fact that Stavros was originally Mikkos’s cousin. Then years later they made him Stefan’s brother and both became Mikkos and Helena’s sons. But that’s not so much a never pursued storyline as a show history rewrite. Like Holly saying she never knew Bill Eckert 🙂

And I thought Silas Clay was a stupid name. This one is even worse.

AMEN.. NOW CALLING HANOVER FISK…

Anthony

Joe – I agree 100%…dumb name. However it makes me think that he has a “real name” which will serve as a reveal somewhere down the line. After all, GH needs to tie him in to a legacy family, not the Finn family. Above all else, I hope they give this character a sense of humor! Easton characters – on all shows – have all been so sour.

davlestev1
davlestev1

Because his acting is there was no reason for either side to agree to this incarnation nonsense yet again

Melissa
Melissa

Agreed! Maybe the writers really dig the new Broadway play! What will they call him for short? Ham?!

Bren
Bren

Hoping there is something that makes this character different than the last 4, or was it 5, characters he played on GH. Each of those characters were paired with Sam, those just didn’t work for me. I’d like to see him paired with Ava or Nina, he had chemistry with them. Perhaps maybe Liz. Liz’s character could sure do with a change, something better than obsessing over Jason, who seems to have definitely moved on with Sam. I just can’t get too excited about seeing the same actor keep playing character, after character on the same show.

SZima
SZima

I’m with you Bren…it’s ridiculous that this actor is playing his FOURTH character on the same fricking show! Two different characters is pushing it, but FOUR?
I guess I’m OK with Easton coming back, even though I’ve not been a big fan of him or ANY of his romantic relationships…except for John & Evangeline on OLTL,
I hope they can find the right woman for him this time around. I agree that Sam is NOT the right one for him anymore, and please keep him away from Elizabeth! She is poison for just about every man she gets involved with. Forget Ava too; she’s a murderer and also poison. Nina will need someone when Franco refuses to give her a baby.

tim S
tim S

I agree… I am not excited at all. He is a great character but enough.. after four tries on the show to make it work with him…. give up!!! This says a lot about the writers and their concern for the fans that watch the show.. How can you expect the fans to keep embracing a character over and over due to bad writing and wanting to keep a character on the show and keep bringing him back. I can understand once, but enough..

Matilda
Matilda

They were all different characters. The problem is Easton is what he is. He doesn’t have the range or ability to portray characters that are different and unique in their characteristics and mannerisms.

Patrick
Patrick

I have to agree with you.

although… I was so taken with his last days… when he was taking care of an ailing Ava… that I honestly, thought… this is IT … this is where he belongs… with Ava

but

as most folks have said… he’s that brooding cop…

so… i’m not sure if he’s taking the risk to act outside the box

OK

I have to agree… I think it was @Alan… someone posted… they could think of 10 plus more actors that could have been recast or brought back

He’s going to have to fire right outa the gate? to make an impact, before we become indifferenct

Mary
Mary

I am hoping that he is really Valentine Cassidine the man that Helena told Luke about. She was so afraid of Valentine. Think of the havoc and chaos the man that terrified Helena could bring down on Port Charles.

Shay
Shay

That was the great hope for many of us, Mary!…..CeeCee and I speculated upon this possibility on numerous occasions. Guess we shall just have to wait and see if our collective wish is eventually granted…..

JustSaying

I was hoping he wouldn’t play the role of another doctor but Oh Well…
I guess he couldn’t be a corporate raider like Jax. Or anyone different.

Melita Pitts
Melita Pitts

I think he’s Nina’s Dr.that she sees for her fertility

brian

totally agree after reading your comment ! guess we’ll find out Monday.

ck

Really hoping Mr. Easton will get his due this time around.

A terrific actor, hopefully they will steer away from the Kelly Monaco effect, that train has long left the building. I’m hoping that this character is more of an impact instead of a filler void.

Can’t wait to see what happens, but hopefully, Mr. Easton will have juicy material that we can eat for lunch and dinner.

Liam
Liam

I like ME, but I think he has gotten his due plenty of times. There are plenty of actors who can turn sh*t into sugar with just one role.

Lucy D.
Lucy D.

First of all since the name is not what was spoiled how do we know he’s a doctor? In the credits the characters who are doctors have Dr. next to their names. Of course GH could be playing us.

Also Nina said she had a doctor’s appt with a specialist–so that could be him. And could he also be Hayden’s ex?

Melissa
Melissa

We’re already reading something into the absence of Dr. In front of his name and it could be that the person who does the credits simply forgot!

curacaoman

So we get three days of Dr. Finn, but no Dr. SexyPecs? Yawn

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

I was hoping his name would be either Arnold Ziffle or Chewbacca…oh,well…lol

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

or Barnabas Collins-VAMPIRE!…lol

I bet Hamilton Finn is a bad guy just to throw us for a loop although since TPTB know we all love Michael Easton, the character will have redeemable points to make us forgive him from time to time. It’s only my guess though. I don’t have a clue what this new doctor is going to be about.

Chris
Chris

I like Michael a lot as an actor, but it’s downright ridiculous that he gets to play yet ANOTHER newly created role on this show, hogging airtime at the expense of GH veterans. This has reached the point of zero believability. If TPTB really think that this will help attract new younger viewers to this show or lure back casual lapsed fans, I think they’re sorely mistaken. It just further illustrates how out of touch Frank Valentini is as the executive producer and what a massive ego he has. Too much loyalty to one of his former OLTL boys.

Plus, Hamilton Finn is a ridiculous name. Seriously, who thinks up the character names for this show? LOL. Get with the times. And I thought Silas Clay was absurd.

Lisa
Lisa

I love the name…Hamilton is now on Broadway starring Renee Elise Goldsberry who, I think, was his greatest love Evangeline on OLTL. So they stay connected by the name. Finn is just a cool name. Does anyone know if this is a contract role? I hope there is a back story that ties him to Port Charles and is written to showcase Michael’s incredible talent. I love him…I just didn’t think that Silas was a well developed character. I remember around the holidays of 2014 he was hardly on GH and he came back looking very thin. I was hoping he wasn’t sick. Now he looks better than ever, and I can’t wait to see him back on GH again.

Sara
Sara

Lisa,
Yes his character did have a relationship with Evangeline, however his greatest love on OLTL was Natalie played by Melissa Archer.

Terri
Terri

Completely agree Natalie was his one true love.

Lisa
Lisa

Thank you Sara…I know in the show that Natalie was supposed to be his great love, but I saw more chemistry and sexual tension with Evangeline. I didn’t see it with Natalie…but that is just my opinion.

maddiehayes
maddiehayes

ITA Sara, but Lisa did say “I think” Evangeline was his greatest love .. that was her personal favorite! I wasn’t watching when she was on, but from what I gather, it was a raging fan war and Evangeline was thrown under the bus for Jolie. As much as I loved Jolie, I sympathize with Lisa.

Pam Little
Pam Little

LOVE LOVE LOVE Michael is returning to GH, Name is Lame, don’t need another Doctor, wish they would get rid of that Hateful gray haired doc don’t like him at all !!! Was hoping he would return as Silas Clay back from the dead and be KIKI’s Dad again..or a Casadine, but REALLY would prefer him play the GOOD COP he was, & Bring Natalie on GH where that would REALLY BE CHEMISTRY, Let Liz move away & have our “John & Natalie ” back together again…. HOPE HE PLAYS A GOOD GUY, NOT A BAD ONE!!!! Really been HAPPY for him to play a Cop with Natalie at the PCPD too…. But IM JUST HAPPY HE IS BACK & HOPE THEY GIVE HIM A LOT OF AIRTIME….

CeeCee
CeeCee

Yeah, Sara….everytime i think of John and Natalie, I get all chocked-up….sparks always flying when they were together in any scene. Ahhhh, those days!

Pam

Still hoping we get to see ME and MA work their magic again…

Stephanie

You people are getting me so nostalgic. I agree Michael and Melissa need to be reunited. They rocked it! Love them both

Olivia
Olivia

I like the first name Hamilton , but Finn not so much. Maybe Renee Goldsberry can’t do a guest appearance, as a former love interest. I also think she was Michael’s best acting partner, two really talented actors.

Olivia
Olivia

I totally agree with you Lisa Evangeline and John were the best. Michael’s character Hamilton could be paired with Jordan, I think they would have good chemistry together.

rebecca1
rebecca1

I liked Evangeljne too. Thought they were great together.

Olivia
Olivia

There’s been chatter on the Soap Central board suggesting that Finn be paired with Jordan. I must say I agree with those who are pushng the pairing because I think the Two could create a spark.

Ellen Lavoue
Ellen Lavoue

I think he’s going to be the fertility doc that’s been discussed or an on/gyn since Sabrina confirmed her back with her new baby playing the part!

Tim
Tim

I know that a lot of people will disagree with me,but I don’t want to see another attempt at an Easton/Monaco pairing,it worked once over 15 years ago when they played Caleb and Livvie,but it didn’t work with Sam and John or Sam and Silas.

Melissa
Melissa

Totally agree.

Sara
Sara

Got that right

Eileen
Eileen

I HATE it when they bring back the same actors for different characters on the same show! With all the actors in the world, they could pick someone else. That said, I DO REALLY like Michael Easton. However, he will always be a vampire to me….:)

Mary
Mary

This is response to the anger GH generated from the legion of Michael Easton fans for killing Silas.

kimberly
kimberly

It’s odd that the other two characters have Dr. before their names. Why not Hamilton Finn if, in fact, the character is a doctor? maybe not a doctor…

maddiehayes
maddiehayes

So, what, are they gonna call him “Hammy”? Ugh .. I love Michael Easton, but bringing him back to play one character after another is getting comical.

Mary SF
Mary SF

I am still wondering if they are going to address the fact the new doctor looks just like Silas Clay or are we just going to pretend there is no resemblance?

I can only imagine the conversation at Easter when relatives who normally don’t watch GH watch with relatives that do. Relative One who has never watched- Who’s that guy? Relative Two that’s John McCain; Relative Three –no they had to get rid of the character so that is Silas Clay, Relative Four- Nope they killed Silas, he is now Hamilton Finn, Relative Four- I thought he was some vampire dude; Relative One– Wait, who’s that guy again? LOL

su0000

Easton; GH–

All ^^^^ the same guy
Then Silas ..

(now Hamilton)

Hamilton Finn…I like it. Hey…I’ve heard WORSE…W-A-Y WORSE!!!!! Just saying……….

j9

Maybe he will go by “Finn”. If so, that is cool. I just hope they let ME’s charisma shine through. When you see him in interviews or even just the recent “Back to the Party” promos, he is so charming and oodles of charisma! The writers need to tap into that version of ME.

Lisa
Lisa

Yes yes yes…I agree!!! Michael is so charming and charismatic but it didn’t show as Silas. I do hope they tap into that with his next character.

Jason
Jason

Just a hunch – Hamilton Finn will ultimately go by Finn Cassadine (or Spencer, Quartermaine, Baldwin, etc.).

Robert Williams
Robert Williams

Since GH changed name from what we were told – Marcus Byrne – do you think he also may NOT be a doc? In the credits, the other guys were listed as Dr Andre, Dr Griffin, etc but he was just “Hamilton Finn” no Dr…

Melissa

Actually I like Marcus Byrne better.

Timmm

Hamilton Finn? Sounds like a whiskey!

Shay

Rose

Timmm…Just had a thought….maybe Michael will be a doctor with a bit of a sense of humour. What a change for GH, and Michael who is usually way more serious.

Timmm
Timmm

Rose, I think they are going dark this time with ME.

Rose
Rose

Timmm…you’re probably right about Michael going dark, or at least serious. That’s been his MO as an actor forever. Figure when tptb got together with him about coming back, and pitched a scenario it would have to be something he felt he could do something with. Just hope he smiles once in a while.

CeeCee
CeeCee

Hi, Timmmy.
Lol. Finn is Scottish/Irish. It means white, fair and hero…of the people(Finn Mac Cumhail). The name Fiona, “white flower” is a derivative of it.
I bet Finn is directly linked to Griffin…..too many coincidences. And, as i said weeks ago; does Hayden fit into this? Her ex? Am i fantacizing? MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING?
Happy Palm Sunday, Timmm.

Timmm
Timmm

God bless you to! I hope you and your family enjoy PS and Easter! Spring is here!

@Timmm.
Thank you.

Shay

@CeeCee….There is definitely some tie-in to a legacy character for Hamilton Finn at hand here, but which one? It’s been said that he is seeking vengeance upon a Port Charles resident, but who? I’ve been ruminating over his name….first I thought perhaps it was a word anagram? But I couldn’t come up with anything that made sense in relation to GH history. The only remote connotation that rings a bell is that a teenaged Laura accidentally killed a man named David Hamilton. Hmmmm……As for a Hayden link? I certainly hope not….but in terms of Duke or Griffin? A definite maybe, although I should still like the mysterious Finn to have a Cassadine connection.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Timmm.
Oh, Timmm. Dr Finn is probably the infectious disease specialist.
Also, su0000 and I ( as per my husband) called it !!.

CeeCee
CeeCee

@Shay.
Hey, Shay,
I do agree with you…..Cassadine all the way. I hold the same hope.
Did you notice the malevolent glimmer in Hamilton’s eyes, today, as he was on the phone with Monica? Petting his pet lizard? LOL.
Oh, yeah!! This guy has ruination and mayhem on the brain. Timmm did say he would walk in as a dark character.
I hope not too ” Lucifery “, though.
Your Laura theory is very interesting. Hmmmm, a mask, maybe. Is Faison back? I miss his scenes with Liesl. LOL. Buonanotte.

Hope Easton’s new character is going to be a good guy, a white knight with no ties to the mob, anyone who has ever been in the mob, or dubious law enforcement. I really wouldn’t mind if he were a Cassadine. At least the Cassadines are upfront about who they are.

ME actually does have range and has shown a sense of humor, but the actors don’t write their own lines. They can only work with what they’ve been given. Initially I thought he should’ve been Franco and Roger should have played Silas, but that’s just “too out of the box ” thinking. Maybe he should split his time between writing and acting.

Melissa
Melissa

He premieres today! He is both more stylish and…evil! I am
Intrigued!

Thad Bosley

He’s back again? This really stretches credibility to its limits. As for Mr. Easton, he is a one-trick pony with no range whatsoever. Why they keep resurrecting him — after one failed GH role after another — is beyond me.

Kathy Gillman

Is his lizard’s name, Roxy, in reference to Roxie on OLTL? I’m glad he’s back with any name! He’s fun to watch in this character. Shows his versatility ☺

General Hospital

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.

Courtesy/ABC

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?

Fans are in for a treat today (Friday, May 22nd) when ABC’s General Hospital airs an encore presentation of one of the finest hours of soap opera in the history of the genre, with its 52nd anniversary episode from April 1, 2015.

In the episode, viewers finally learned what turned Luke (Tony Geary) into Fluke, which has been the on-going story for months; but it all lead up to the shocking reveal, when Luke revisited his past in his broken down childhood home and the demons that haunted him.

The episode goes from black and white to color, as Geary plays two roles: Luke and his abusive father, Tim, in one of the greatest performances of his career.

It is there we finally see Luke’s mother, Lena, played to perfection by Laura Wright (Carly).  And, it is in these scenes we meet for the first time Chloe Lanier as a young Patricia Spencer, who was so good, she was later cast as Nelle.  Playing the young Luke in another powerful performance was Joey Luthman,

Throughout the twists and turns, viewers learn that Luke not only killed his father, but accidentally killed his own mother who he loved.  It was a harrowing moment of deeply repressed memories.  The ending in the present time also features the Spencer family rallying around a distraught Luke in the hankie-inducing final scenes.
