That didn’t take long! ABCSID is reporting that both Michael Easton and Ted King will be transports. No word on if Ted King will reprise his role as Lorenzo or be continuing as Tomas, but Michael Easton will be bringing John McBain to Port Charles. If Frons wasn’t out, I would thought that this would REEK of him, but at last it is not. Both are slated to make their debut in January.December 24, 2011 at 12:59 am #420718
They really need to be careful about this. In that same article I read, it was rumored that Krsten Alderson, of all ppl!?, was going to be nuKristina. That would and will be a hot ass mess. They can’t have all of these actors (as much as I love most of them and wish them well) to board a sinking ship. Fix the show, PRAY that the network will give you time to get it up in ratings, and then go on from there.
I am still expecting Nurses Ball: The Musical from them before it is all said and done.December 25, 2011 at 10:15 pm #420719
One would assume with the tired and incredibly bored look on Easton’s face over the last few years on OLTL that he was bored out of his mind with the one note McBain character. But I guess a paycheck is a paycheckJanuary 11, 2012 at 10:41 am #420720
In addition to Michael Easton (John), Kristen Alderson (Starr), Kassie DePaiva (Blair), and Roger Howarth (Todd) have joined the cast!
“We have a very exciting story planned for the citizens of Port Charles, with Sonny Corinthos at the center of it! I am confident viewers and fans alike will be excited for the arrival of John, Starr, Blair and Todd,” says Valentini in a statement. “Incorporating characters from One Life to Live continue the legacy of the show as we weave them into General Hospital.”
The actors are all due on the GH set in late January, to air in February.January 11, 2012 at 11:10 am #420721
I love all 3 Mannings but this didn’t work out when ATWT did same with a bunch of AW actors. Doesn’t sound like Jack is coming either? Not sure how I feel on this?
The line of showing focusing on Sonny is the big problem.January 11, 2012 at 1:22 pm #420722January 11, 2012 at 2:07 pm #420724
Well, good for those actors, and hopefully the GH fans will enjoy it. This feels to me like a consolation prize, and I’m just going to say thanks but no thanks. And I’m pretty surprised to see them move Blair over to Port Charles. Very few OLTL characters felt as aimless as Blair did during RC’s run. I guess this means Todd will not be going to jail for Victor’s murder?January 11, 2012 at 8:55 pm #420725
they gonna find Tomas in Port Charles….January 11, 2012 at 9:14 pm #420726
I think it could be good, and it could (if they last a while) probably lead to a few other people popping up for a day or two.
And I so want Skye to come back to GH now- can you imagine if she walked into the Quartermaine mansion and saw Blair sitting there lol?January 11, 2012 at 9:38 pm #420727
I agree, this reeks of desperation, But I have faith with RC and FV in charge that this can at the very least be watchable. I’d much rather it be Tea that comes over, she feels like a more natural fit for “GH” and I feel would make ONE HELL of a pairing with Sonny. For one, she’s used to psychotic men in her life (HELLO TODD, ROSS!) so I think she could be a match. Her and Carly could have EPIC fights and she could give Alexis a run in the legal department. A lot of possibilites really.
I love Blair as a character, but agree that RC hasn’t done her any justice, she lost her footing as a character under him…. I feel like they had no real grasp on how to write for her so they just sidelined her as much as they could.
YES, Robin Christopher as Skye would be appropriate to return now… can you imagine having Skye find both Todd and Blair in town and see Tomas and be like “Lorenzo?”
I think this could work if the plannes storyline has a purpose, but if it’s just a stunt thing that won’t work. I’d much rather them have tied up all the stories on “OLTL” than do some misguided stunt. and PLEASE let them kill off John McBain quickly! I’m sure we’ll get at least one John/Sam confused look/”don’t I know you” glance.January 12, 2012 at 6:45 pm #420728
Nelson Branco is saying that two more OLTL actors will be joining GH. He hasn’t said who yet, but many people are guessing it’s Melissa Archer as Natalie. That would make a lot of sense, and actually might work well. I’d love to see Melissa work with Kelly Monaco or Rebecca Herbst.
I’m hoping it’s Florencia Lozano as Tea, who I think would make perfect sense at “GH”. She would fit in PERFECTLY. She could be the kind of woman that could finally tame Sonny maybe? She has the shady lawyer vibe going for her; she has a history of picking psychotic men and I think would have hot chemistry with Maurice. She could be a foil for Diane and Alexis, imagine the courtroom shenaigans they would get into! It’s almost too good to be true.January 13, 2012 at 7:38 am #420729
Yes, Tea would be the most natural fit for GH of any of the OLTL characters, I would think.January 13, 2012 at 12:03 pm #420730
Hate the idea of any more women defending Sonny and Jason’s murdering people and being a criminal and blaming all the problems on others.January 15, 2012 at 7:34 pm #420731
I see your point. I was just saying all the possibilites that Tea would have in Port Charles.January 16, 2012 at 5:42 pm #420732
I like the idea of the crossover. It gives us a chance to get some resolution to OLTL, since we didn’t quite get it from the finale. In any case, it’s not like it can really “hurt” GH given the current state of the show.
