BREAKING NEWS: Roger Howarth, Kassie DePaiva, Kristen Alderson, and Michael Easton Check Into General Hospital!By Jillian Bowe on January 11, 2012
Will One Life To Live showrunner Frank Valentini and head writer Ron Carlivati bring a few actors along with them to General Hospital, once they take over? ABC Soaps In Depth is reporting there is a possibility both Michael Easton and Ted King may head to GH. According to the magazine's site, Easton will reprise his role as super cop John McBain. There is no word on who King would play.
A GH spokesperson has told the magazine they don't comment on rumors. However, the magazine is reporting Easton and King may arrive in Port Charles in late Jan.
It appears Garin Wolf is a bit luckier than his former boss Jill Farren Phelps. According to ABC Soaps In Depth, Wolf and Shelly Altman will be sticking around at General Hospital, they just won't be serving as co-head writers now that Ron Carlivati is in town. According to the magazine's Twitter page:
The latest from #GH: Wolf and Altman WILL remain with the show, just not in the headwriter slot.
Oh happy day,
When Jesus washed,
He washed the soap killers away!
Are the soap gods finally smiling down on us? According to ABC Soaps In Depth's Twitter profile, Jill Farren Phelps (Editor's Note: Jill Farren "F*** Up") has been given her walking papers at General Hospital. The magazine reports One Life To Live's Frank Valentini has been signed on as GH's new executive producer!
Huge #GH news: A source at ABC/Disney says Jill Farren Phelps was let go and Frank Valentini is the new EP. Actors will find out in the AM.
