102 March 12th, 2016 Hallelujah! GH Welcomes Michael Easton Back To The Party: Watch The Promo!

Courtesy/ABC

The images you have been seeing on social media from a recent General Hospital promo shoot have all come together in a terrific new spot for the long-running ABC daytime drama series.

Set to Andy Grammer’s hit song, Good To Be Alive (Hallelujah) the cast of GH party on with balloons, smiles and sexy looks. But at the end of the promo, the series officially welcomes back Michael Easton and heralds his return on the upcoming Monday, March 21st episode!

During the video, the lyrics “I think I finally found my hallelujah. I’ve been waiting for this moment all my life. Now all my dreams are coming true, ya. I’ve been waiting for this moment,” are used over the cast images from the Grammer tune.  And when Easton arrives in the video, the song lyrics change to: “Good to be alive right about now.”

Watch the video featuring all of your GH favorites after the jump, and then let us know what you thought of it, and if you are looking forward to Easton’s arrival on March 21st!

    Well from the promo, it doesnt look like ABC has ANY plans of canceling our beloved soap! Excellent!

    I dunno for sure..
    but when a soap gets canceled it happens with very little or no notice..

    GH has good 4 years left ..

    True to that..

    At the rate GH is going, 4 years is way too generous..I was one to bitch and moan about Ron C. writing towards the end of his tenure, but the current writers are so worse for wear, that I prefer to tune in to a soap from Mexico instead of watching GH during my time off..I have life 4 episodes to see and have no interest..

    I was SO wrong…Please bring Ron C. back…At least he was entertaining, cartoonish and all!!

    AJQ replied

    ABC may not have any plans right now to cancel GH but if this promo is an indication of what TPTB think appeals to GH fans, they may not have a choice.

    Hallelujah, the whole cast dancing around, waiting for this moment all my life, all my dreams coming true, because Michael Easton is back? Lol! Either Frank is delusional, or he’s just using his OLTL actor to mess with fans, which actually means he is delusional thinking that’s a good strategy.

    Easton is someone of no consequence on GH. Silas was a flop and he was fired. He left GH and the ratings went up. Now everyone’s dancing and dreams are coming true because he’s back on GH?

    This is utterly laughable.

    This promo represents FV and NV’s “vision” for the show, and who it will feature: heavy on the Corinthi, “Julexis” and Jasam. Precisely the folks front and center for the last failed Sweeps period. “Julexis” wedding was a ratings dud, the Corinthi drive down ratings, Jasam are just a bore and have done nothing to spike ratings at all.

    This vision is a failed vision, which I note did not feature Genie Francis or Becky Herbst. Herbst was expected to take the low ball offer and be marginalized, or refuse it and be gone. Genie may have lost interest, and said “no thanks to this,” since her most recent big scene was with a Snickers bar.

    Because ABC brass had to step in and overrule FV on Herbst, it will probably have to step in and overrule him on this vision, which is a recipe for further ratings decline. As I said, these were the faces of sweeps, and sweeps flopped.

    It is time for ABC to cut its losses with this failed vision and the poor set of decisions that create PR nightmares (trying to force Herbst out against the fans wishes). Calling Wendy Riche!!!!!!

    Michael (not Fairman) replied

    I’m not sure I can agree with assigning the blame to Valentini (I think all of this could just as well be ABC’s vision, with Frank and the writers left to execute it—but I’d love to know for sure, and if anybody has insider knowledge, please please please please PLEASE share it), but I do absolutely agree that this whole episode points loud and clear to what a mess this show has become and how screwed up they (whoever “they” is–FV, ABC execs, the writers, whoever) have made things. I have no particular objection to Mr. Easton’s return (provided they write him an interesting, viable character this time), but as I wrote below, he wouldn’t even make my top 10 among departed actors whom the show should move heaven and earth to get back. I think about the money that’s going to his salary, and who else it might have gone to support in a return, and that’s when it does start to bother me that this is the route they’ve gone. And doing it with this much hoopla and fanfare, when other, more important returns (um, hello—Genie Francis, anyone?) pretty much went unheralded, really does highlight what’s wrong with the current “vision.” It’s a real pity. A few years ago the show seemed to be getting its act together (after the long, dark JFP/Guza years) and moving in a better direction, with more balance and more of an ensemble approach to the storytelling. Now we’re back to certain characters dominating, way too much mob (and mob glorification or justification) for my taste, and very little to spark interest outside of some excellent performances. It really is too bad.

    That said, I wish Michael Easton the best of luck in the new role and just hope his character is not remotely connected to the mob. That would be something of a saving grace.

    Tristan replied

    It is more laughable than even you imagined, AJQ. According to DC, the GH cast was NOT told it was filming a promo to welcome back ME. They all thought it was a promo for GH, and not for FV’s pet actor on his 4th GH role. Wow! Way to engender a lot of jealousy now that the promo is out. FV’s agenda is so transparent. He couldn’t care less about GH. I am kind of floored he pulled that on this cast, already swelled with useless newbies!

    Rebecca1 replied

    AJQ I think you’re reading way too much into one promo. Michael Easton may not be a GH vet but he’s a SOAP vet…and a very popular one. There was a huge petition to get him rehired on GH, it obviously worked and this promo addresses his return. For those of us who care…and I am one of those who do…the promo works just fine. Love Easton and am hoping for his sake as well as the fans that this time around is a charm.

    AJQ replied

    Tristan, I saw that. It was pretty obvious from just watching the promo that it was filmed as a general promo and then edited for Easton. Can you imagine the GH actors reaction now seeing it? They had them dancing around for Michael Easton? Lol! Like he’s anyone and he’s going to save them. Their lives must have been so empty with him gone, but HALLElUJAH! He’s back! They’re dreams are coming true! They’ve waited for this their whole lives!They have to be livid.

    And Rebecca1, you can like Michael and be glad he’s back. The promo can work just fine for you as well. It doesn’t change the fact that it’s ridiculous. It doesn’t change that fact that Michael is way down the list, if even on the list of actors that mean anything to GH fans.

    If the petition “worked,” it did so because it fit the narrative of Frank’s agenda. 14,000 fangirls sign a petition for a show that needs several million viewers to be successful. A petition signed to bring an actor back when his departure had no measurable negative effect on ratings, they have only been up since he’s gone, which means he has no impact.

    rebecca1 replied

    Well AJQ, I AM a GH fan. And there are many GH fans who were upset to see Michael go and are happy that he’s back. And if you want to talk ridiculous…as you say…I think it’s ridiculous to think ANY executive is going to bring back any actor because he “has an agenda” or because he’s a friend , etc. If there’s any “agenda” it’s to keep his own job secure by attempting to increase the fan base and kerp the show on the air. Whether he’s successful or not, or for how long, time will tell. Shows come and go. Primetime shows get canceled left and right…very very good shows. Dollars…comes down to dollars.

    I get that you’re annoyed because you’d rather have a GH vet back instead of Easton. There are a few I’d love to come back too. I love Scott, Lucy, Scorpio, Stefan. I wish AJ and Duke were still “alive.” Still, I’m thrilled Easton is back…I welcome new players to Port Charles, especially one I loved on OLTL. He’s an actor.. lol…how many GH actors are on other soaps now. Alot! That’s the fictitious world we live in…or get to visit. Might be a great character that opens up a whole new story.

    And “fan girls” is a bit harsh. You seem discontent about the show much of the time, yet you must be a fan girl…or guy…to get so upset over casting.

    None of us speak for everybody…so statements you make like Michael’s down the list of actors and he doesn’t mean anything to GH fans is inaccurate and presumptuous.

    AJQ replied

    Rebecca1 I’ve given it some more thought and you’re right. Michael Easton is a huge star. Huge. GH fans love him and are eagerly waiting for his return. Certainly the cast wouldn’t be dancing around all giddy if it weren’t true. When he comes back, GH will immediately hit 3.5 million viewers and a 650K demo rating minimum I think. That’s the kind of impact a major star like Easton will have, that’s why the cast is so giddy, he’s going to save them.

    And you’re right, Producers and executives never have favorites or personal agendas. That never plays into decisions. That was silly of me.

    Can’t wait for Michael and his new character. All indications are that it will be awesome.

    rebecca1 replied

    Well AJQ…the laugh’s on me! I was ready to thank you for your gracious reply…until a few short srentences in where I realized you were just spewing sarcasm. So fun! You’ve got an untapped talent…

    Michael needs a hot love story that will melt our TV’s. It’s been a long time since he’s had that kind of story. Not since his John and Evangeline days has he had love scenes that would make you want to turn on a fan. (Smile). I would love for Renee Goldberry to visit Port Charles as ME’s character’s long lost lover, one can always hope.

    Olivia replied

    I totally agree, he looks marvelous. He and Jordan would be a hot couple.

    Reply

    Trophy Lady replied

    Of course, I absolutely agree with you, Olivia! I do wish Jordan would’ve been featured more in the promo. She was only shown once. Oh well, they can make up for that by putting Michael’s character and Jordan together on the show!

    The Commissioner and the NEW HOT DOCTOR! Yeah, that sounds (and looks!) pretty good to me!

    Olivia replied

    Michael is heading east to the NYC area, I hope he takes time to see Hamilton and say hi to an old friend, Renee Goldsberry.

    Harry 1 replied

    Jordan already has two men after her, she doesn’t need another. Save Griffin for Lizzy.
    At least she and her massive hair extensions were in the promo. There was nary a sight of Laura or Lizzy.

    Trophy Lady replied

    Maybe “Lizzy” should just be single for a while. She hasn’t tried that before, and I think now just may be the time for her to try something new. She has THREE KIDS to care for. I think she should just focus on them for a while.

    As for Jordan, she has Andre after her — and he’s a BORE. Who is the other guy you speak of? But since you’ve mentioned that GORGEOUS Dr. Griffin, I think he’d look great with Jordan, too. But, let’s just be honest, Jordan is BEAUTIFUL and would look great on the arm of anyone.

    So, with that being said, why not have Jordan in a triangle with both of the HOT DOCS at GH — Dr. Griffin AND ME’s character?! That would be smokin’ HOT! Good looking STUNNERS all around! Everyone WINS!

    CeeCee replied

    Port Charles is not in the NYC area, though. But, who’s Renee Goldsbury? Lol.

    rebecca1 replied

    Harry…I think Andre and Anna are, and have been, interested in each other for a while. I’d be surprised if they dont explore that relationship. If they don’t, Easton with Anna would also be attractive.

    Intersting how they threw Maxie and Griffin together today…another possible match.

    Basically there’s no way of predicting because we’re just going on looks. It really depends on his personality and who his character REALLY is.

    Trophy Lady replied

    LOL, exactly, Cee Cee! EVERYONE knows who Renee Goldsberry is! If you’ve ever seen Michael Easton SHINE beyond belief, then you know EXACTLY who Renee Goldsberry is!

    Olivia replied

    Port Charles is near nothing it’s a fictional town but Broadway is hor real. A superstar is what Michael calls Renee and think he would love to work with her again.

    I just Michael to be in a really good story.

    CeeCee replied

    Oh, my gosh, Trophy Lady. I had completely forgotten about Renee as Evangeline. LOL. I did not put 2 and 2 together or assimilate the names…..my bad. NOOOOW, it makes sense.

    CeeCee replied

    I understand the chronological aspect on soaps….it is what it is.
    But, as far as Curtis, I suppose it’s a matter of taste. I look at the whole body…facial features, shoulders, tapering waistline….Curtis is a good-looking guy!
    Better looking than Dante; more appealing than Andre, who, may I add, all he has is an elegant wardrobe. This guy has no appeal, except for his medical degree? Tee-Hee.
    Bye, love you guys.

    Tristan replied

    Waaay too much Kelly Monaco. Is she supposed to be the star of the show, or are they telegraphing that Easton will be her new leading man?

    Reply

    CeeCee replied

    Right, Tristan. Imagine that! Sam’s new leading man….about the same age as her daddy, Julian.
    Let Sam have Jason. They are both seat-warmers, as far as I’m concerned…fillers.

    Elizabeth replied

    No corporate entity would embark on such a chaotic strategy purposefully. Like much if not most of GH planning in the years since FV was made executive producer, this looks like cleaning up the dung on the floor. Just like with Becky Herbst, just like with Luke/Fluke/Puke, just like with the story disaster turning into the casting disaster of the OLTL three. Not ONE exec that has anything to do with this classic and at one time, marquis daytime drama deserves to keep their jobs with the show. And once again, AJQ hits the nail on the head. (Although I DO like Michale Easton and believe he was totally hosed last go ’round.)

    Happy for all the ME fans out there, and I certainly don’t object to his being back (he can act, and his exit interview when Silas was killed off showed what a truly classy and humble guy he is–a certain recently departed Big Star might take a lesson). But I’m struck, as I watch all this hoopla, with the observation that if I were compiling a list of actors GH has let go who absolutely needed to be brought back, he wouldn’t even make my top 10.

    At least if they’re going to do this, let’s all hope that they write him a character worth having around this time. Silas, through no particular fault of ME, was pretty much a total bust.

    Reply

    Julie Lomoe replied

    I’m delighted they’re bringing Michael back, and I agree with you about the Silas character. Michael’s interview in Soaps in Depth was very telling in this regard. He was very circumspect and diplomatic yet candid about why the Silas role was so uninspiring. I’ve been blogging about Silas’s death and Michael’s resurrection ever since last July.

    Amy, and I do not care for the Rebecca bashing–it goes both ways.
    What these idiotic fans do not understand is that Rebecca and “Killy” are dear friends in real life. This is the most senseless and idiotic war between fan bases and neither actress enjoys it or participates it.
    The reason Rebecca Herbst as Lizzy is not in the promo is that it was filmed while contract negotiations were still pending. So you can stop rubbing your hands with malevolent glee over the fact that there is no Lizzy in the promo as it doesn’t mean anything. Our ethereally lovely and eternally youthful Lizzy is still alive and well and hopefully is about to embark upon a new romance.

    I find some of the combos interesting. Why is Franco dancing with Carly and not Nena? I didn’t see Elizabeth? Was this shot while they were in contract negotiations? What about Laura, Tracy, Monica, Hayden, Epiphany, Mac and Felicia, Ava or Andre? Dear heavens, they had more than enough shots of Sam. They could have replaced most to includes these other characters.

    I know, gripe, gripe, gripe. But seriously, I am just happy to see ANY promo the network provides. This one was far better than some.

    was this a subliminal message that Kelly Monaco… IS top draw… enigmatic… and yeah, she’s cute – IN A DRESS – hear that ? and she’s smiling… and the big plus… she isn’t speaking…. so… I gather… it’s all centered around 3 couples

    Jason and Sam
    Sonny and Carly
    Julian and Alexis

    ???? argh! REALLY ?

    I look at hyour list Rodd of what’s left off… I stand with my fellow long time viewers whod agree that who you stated should be the most featured.

    Great promo! GH really messed up when they brought on the 3 OLTL characters in 2013, and bringing the sexy Michael Easton back in a new character has set the ship straight again! Sam belonging with Jason, Sonny with Carly, etc. And Michael’s even wearing a color other than black!! Now that is a big step forward.

    Looking forward to Michael’s new character unfold. Sure wish GH would bring on Melissa Archer though!

But the promo is to welcome Michael back and it felt a bit to much if you ask me not because he’s not worth it but it looks like overkill something one would do out of guilt, for firing him in the first place . If the show was promoting something else then it would make more sense . Regardless, welcome back Michael, and hallelujah !!!

    The cast members look spectacular in this promo, which was fun to watch. I’d love to see some of this energy (and styling & wardrobe) on the actual show. I’m glad Michael Easton is back and am interested in what his new role will entail. Long live GH!

    Reply

    Melissa replied

    I couldn’t agree more. If the production values of this promo could be brought to GH that would be amazing! I have no quibble with the wardrobe, but the sets are getting tired and boring. Give Griffin a home asap. Make sure Michael Easton’s new character has an apartment at the outset. Have Dante and Lulu move into a new space. Build a new home for Elizabeth with her insurance money. Not everyone can live at Wyndemere or Metro Court. Metro Court, in particular, has been used to DEATH as a residence. Who in the world has the money to live in an expensive hotel semi-permanently? Cheap budgets have kept characters in generic hotel rooms FOREVER. And, btw, where are people like Olivia, Jordan, Curtis and Andre living? You only ever see them at work, in public or in other people’s homes. That where Bobbie’s Brownstone was a brilliant invention. One building that could house multiple apartments with a core family living in it. Whatever happened to the rehabbed Brownstone that Morgan and Kiki were working on? C’mon GH, invest a little in the scenery. It will likely return to you three-fold in increased viewership.

    Reply

    Shay replied

    That makes perfect sense, Melissa. Although, as co-owner of the MetroCourt, I can understand Olivia making the hotel her residence. As for Jordan, since she’s nearly always been on the government payroll, one way or another, she’s not footing the bill for her digs…..typical bureaucrat, making John Q. Public responsible for her living expenses. LOL.

    CeeCee replied

    Shay replied

    Well, “everybody’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man,” CeeCee! It’s a multi-generational thing….I love it, too. The shorter coif and facial hair, not so much, though. I’ve always gone for ME’s unique signature look of the long locks and I do prefer him clean shaven…..he has such an interesting, timeless face, I rather appreciate him more when he has that “blank canvas” where I can imagine him from all sorts of various eras. Regardless, I welcome him back to GH!

    CeeCee replied

    @Shay.
    Hiya, Shay…
    I know, and I agree. I loved Michael’s longer ‘locks’ myself….and I definitely do not like facial hair on him. Yes, I am glad he’s back as well, but as a much more sophisticated personality than Silas….with a dash of mystery.

    Shay replied

    Oh yes, CeeCee, it will be a delight to have a “sophisticated gent” on the GH canvas for a change….such characters were once a soap opera staple, and now all we seem to get in Port Charles are mobsters, thugs, some lame law enforcers and more mobsters….I’m hoping ME’s addition will portend a new direction toward a more elegant population of professional males.

    Fantastic news! Just eight more days to go. I blogged about Michael’s return and found up a contest for the best guesses as to what kind of character he’d play. Google my name and that should get you there. I’m guessing this will be his new look? I like him with longer hair, but he’s gorgeous anyway.

    I’ve been watching soaps most of my life and you can’t do that without being an optimist. I’ve always enjoyed Easton’s performances and hope they have come up with something he can really work with in the new character.

    Rebecca Budig should have been brought on as Sara Webber. They could have written the exact same story as now with her and the tension between her and Elizabeth would have been significant and meaningful. THIS is one of the biggest problems that the show has, foolish and impetuous casting decisions.

    Rebecca Budig should have come on as Sylvia Plath. Cannot stand that character.

    Oh, yes!! Michael would be complete with Melissa….and, vice versa. If only…..

    The cast already needs to be cut by about 25%. They need another actor from OLTL like they need the plague to hit the cast.

    Tina replied

    So agree with the above posters. Michael and Melissa were and would be awesome!

    Great one there, Harry1…..I also cannot stand Hayden! As for the breathless calls for casting more soap opera refugees/newbies???? Until GH gets rid of its already too many failed experiments using that same worn out formula, there is no need for any new characters….just a good spring canvas cleaning!!!!!

    Loved it!

    This is one of the better enjoyable GH promos in ages and features the majority of the cast mingling around but of course some only focus on the very end with Easton cause they have to put a negative spin on everything. I have really missed fun light promos like this from all soaps and the showcasing of so many actors out of character for a change. Easton appeared in the final few seconds of the video and it is good business sense on FV’s part cause he’s very well known to ABC daytime viewers. He is just trying to hook some of the casual viewers by letting them know he is back cause those who followed him from OLTL may have left GH when Silas was killed off. I know that the viewership has improved a lot since Silas was killed off but that has everything to do with the writing change cause GH feels like a real drama series again instead of a cartoonish outlandish farce.

    More like the Kelly Monaco show. Good for Michael to be gainfully employed again.

    Once again, Rebecca Herbst gets the shaft. I did not see her, but saw TOO much of Kelly Monaco.

    I think Hayden is either Julian’s daughter making her Sam and Lucas’ Sister…or she’s Victor Jerome’s daughter, making her Ava and Julian’s sister…..that would be a combo of a Cassidine and Jerome (Nic and Rachel/Hayden)……

    That’s a good premise, Scott. But, how does that explain her familial interest in Tracy?
