Finally! And we mean finally, John McBain will learn that after a year or more of being denied his child that he is the bio-dad of cute little baby Liam, and according to TV Guide  it all happens on next Tuesday’s, November 15th episode of One Life to Live!

TVG chatted with Michael Easton (John) and not only talked how the reveal goes down, but the future of Jolie, and his decision to continue with One Life when it moves online via Prospect Park.  Here are a few excerpts below!

Easton on how the truth about little Liam is revealed “For a story that got dragged out, it’s resolved pretty quickly. I had nightmares of people on rooftops, and guns flashing and searchlights and rain, with Brody becoming a desperate, crazed lunatic when the truth came out. We’ve done that on our show before. A lot. Instead, they resolve it really nicely between the characters, I think.”

Easton on if the Liam reveal will finally bring John and Natalie together: “They’ve contrived some circumstances that once again keep him and Natalie at arm’s length, and in the middle is Liam. I don’t think two people who’ve been through all this would let that happen. They’d be spending an enormous amount of time together, but the story is what it is.”

Easton on his decision to put his name to Prospect Park’s version of OLTL online: “No one asked for my blood on the dotted line or anything like that. They basically said, “If you’re unhappy after a period of time, take off.” Obviously, they haven’t yet made their deal with the union but if this is to continue I want to be a part of it. We were all so down when the network cancelled us but this new team came in with really positive energy and enthusiasm. They feel what we do is good and worth saving. Not only that but they feel they can improve the show. There are so many jobs at stake. You’d have to be a bit of a Scrooge to not to jump in and support that. Prospect Park has been getting a lot of pessimism and maybe even some grief, from the establishment at the unions and they needed some of us to chip in and support this thing. If it helps move things forward, I was happy to step up. They’re not out of the woods yet, but they’re bright, amazing guys. ”

So are you ready for John to finally be reunited with his son, after so many people came between him and Liam?  Let us know!

I am glad that Michael Easton (and all of the others) have signed with Prospect Park. I loved Michael’s comments about PP!

Actually No. I find them to be one of the worst dysfunctional couples on daytime and them reuniting is why I won’t continue to watch the show. They don’t work and I don’t even think they have chemistry. After all she has done with all the lying I don’t see how John would want her at all. She has proven over and over that she can’t tell the truth. Not only that, but these two can never communicate. I don’t want Natalie to get what she wants in the end. She doesn’t remotely deserve that. And who on earth would… Read more »

I actually agree. John and Natalie bring out the absolute worst in each other. I agree they are dysfunctional and cannot communicate. The only reason John was even marrying her the first time was because she was his baby mama. I hope they move them on to new love interests.

John is a jerk! He didn’t want Liam when he thought he wasn’t his but now he is his, he wants him back! Brody loved Liam throughout, when he was his father & when he wasn’t! I feel bad for him!

I have and always will love Michael Easton’s acting, any other of his creative endeavors.Melissa Archer cut her acting teeth on OLTL and she has gotten better through the years. and I like her . I’ve tried to like them as a couple, but there is just no chemistry between them – they just don’t seemto have anything going, and quite frankly their interaction leaves me cold. Lately there seems to be more of a crackle or pop between them because of baby Liam who ties them together.But their lack of spark is especially noticeable after you watch Michael interact… Read more »

I am pleased that John will finally be allowed to be Liars daddy.
I am going be very unhappy if Natalie and John don’t get to be together. They love each other and should be together. Enough fooling around, please…

So glad ME is making the move to Prospect Park. Pulling for John and Natalie to get together again soon. They’ve been through so much and I’d rather see them in each others arms than at arm’s length. The sheer physicality of them together as a couple is a visual and emotional treat. Two of the best looking actors in daytime.

I’m no fan of John McBain’s – but I sure am a fan of Michael Easton. The man has class and he has smarts. And he has loyalty to the people he works with.

I don’t see it getting any better than that. I might have to start liking his character more!

I am so happy that this storyline will finally come to a head. I cannot wait to see John and Liam together, when the true paternity is finally out in the open on Tuesday. I am sure there will be very heartwarming scenes between the two (the baby who plays Liam is so adorable, and he can truly pass for Michael’s son, imo). I also look forward to John and Natalie reuniting, as they do really understand eachother and work well as a couple, despite her misgivings. Of course they will drag John and Natalie’s reunion out a bit longer,… Read more »

After all that the viewers have invested, we really do need for John and Natalie to finally get together. Brody has shown his lack of character, and Natalie should be able to see this. The stories are really being dragged out, also with the Gigi fiasco. If we are to be switched to internet, please let these two story lines at least, be resolved before. There will be many more scenarios that can work from these resolutions.

The unions are giving Prospect Park grief? Where the hell were the unions when Disney was treating their members so badly? What did they do then? I suggest they stand down, play nice and support their members………………. Just sayin’………………. Oh. And by the way, I’m a proud member of a union who actually cares and fights for me, so I can say this.

I really like what Michael had to say about PP…..wish the people over at AMC would follow suit, but anyway… Now, this whole John & Natalie situation…..I don’t know. I have been screaming at my tv for God knows how long, because this story has been driving me crazy, and I have been wanting them to get back together….but here recently, I must say that I agree with what someone stated before. I don’t know that I want them together anymore….they don’t communicate. I mean, neither one of them can say, I Love You….how sad is that? I don’t know… Read more »

So happy that John finally gets his son. Not so happy that after a year Jolie will still not be together. I’m sure it will happen soon. Love OLTL and would follow it no matter where it went. Still hoping Roger (Todd) signs.

I am thrilled that John learns Liam is HIS son. I am one of Jolie’s biggest supporters and really was.t them to be together and HAPPY! But I think John needs to FIGHT for his family. Woo Natalie are and allow them both to learn to trust each other completely with UNCONDITIONAL love!

Can’t wait for Liam, John and Natalie to be togsther. This lie went on to long, and I hope Brody gets what he deserves. Hope One Life continues without interruption. This is the best soap on the air.

I cannot wait for John and Natalie to reunite and raise their beautiful kid Liam. These three are a match made in heaven. This show would be nothing without Michael and Melissa doing their magic together! Let’s hope that the writers do them justice that they so well deserve!

Thanks Michael Fairman for posting this interview!

Oscar and Grammy winner, Irene Cara has passed away.  The singer/songwriter/actress, known for her memorable vocal performances to the theme of the hit movie, Fame, and singing the title track to another 80’s blockbuster, Flashdance, apparently died in her Florida home yesterday. The cause of death is not yet known.

According to her publicist, Judith Moore on Twitter, the rep shared: “This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news.  It is with profound sadness that on behalf of her family I announce the passing of Irene Cara. The Academy Award-winning actress, singer, songwriter and producer passed away in her Florida home.  Irene’s family has requested privacy as they process their grief. She was a beautifully gifted soul whose legacy will live forever through her music and films.”

A little known fact is that Irene’s first acting gig was on the daytime drama, Love of Life from 1970-1971 in the role of Daisy Allen.   She later appeared in TV roles on: What’s Happening, Kojak, Roots: The Next Generations, and in the film, Sparkle and many more.

Later, Cara first rose to prominence when she was cast in the 1980’s musical film Fame, where she sang the title track and starred in as Coco Hernandez.  Her vocal performance in Fame earned her two Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Performance Female in 1981.

Two years later, Cara not only picked up two Grammy Awards for her performance, but also an Oscar for  co-writing, “Flashdance… What a Feeling” from another 80’s pop culture smash, Flashdance.  At the Grammys in 1984, Irene won for Best Pop Vocal Performance, Female, and Best Album of an Original Score Written for a Motion Picture or a Television Special.  She took home the Oscar for Best Original Song at the Academy Awards in 1983.

Cara’s rep added, that at the time of Irene’s death they were working on new projects: “Working on amazing projects that would have made her  and her fans incredibly happy. Her manager and I will finish them. She’d want that.”
