Soap Opera Digest is confirming that John Driscoll is out as Coop Bradshaw on “GL”. It appears that Coop’s exit is storyline dictated and involves the return of Grant Aleksander. Driscoll’s contract is up in January. Aleksander returns as previously reported is slated for February 6th.
“On-Air On-Soaps” had the pleasure of meeting John a few weeks ago in New York during the “Inside Guiding Light” feature for this website. It’s sad that he is departing the show, especially since Beth and Coop’s affair had recently come to light.
