Nearly 20 years after joining General Hospital as black-sheep boozer A.J. Quartermaine, actor Sean Kanan is heading back to the ABC soap and will hit the air Oct. 29... but what role is he playing?
Not only did mobster-turned-good guy Duke Lavery die on General Hospital way back in 1990, he was gunned down before our very eyes and took his last breath in the arms of his wife, Anna. So how come the guy suddenly popped up on today's episode of GH alive and well and looking just like Ian Buchanan?
He may need a bigger mantel. General Hospital's Anthony Geary won the first of his record six Daytime Emmys as outstanding lead actor exactly 30 years ago, and now he's up for a seventh.
Is there a greater force of nature than Jane Elliot? The Emmy-winning suds sensation signed up to play General Hospital witch Tracy Quartermaine back in 1978 and she's still kicking ass and taking names.
The Revolution was televised and nobody gave a damn. ABC's new daytime lifestyle show has been cancelled due to dismal ratings and will be gone by July. That's fab news for the network's landmark soap General Hospital which has won a stay of execution and will remain on the air into 2013.
Suds great Michael Easton brings his One Life to Live character, John McBain, to General Hospital starting March 13 and the mob may never be the same. In an exclusive chat with TV Guide Magazine, Easton gives the lowdown on McBain's bad past with Sonny Corinthos and what GH plans to do about his own wicked history in Port Charles. Don't forget, Easton once terrorized the town as that lusty vampire Caleb Morley!
TV Guide Magazine: You're one of the last people we expected to see back in Port Chuck, considering your bloodsucker past.
Easton: I know what ...
There's been nothing in soap history like the harmonic convergence known as One Life to Live's Dorian Lord — the perfect creation played by the perfect actress at just the perfect time — and we're pretty damn sure we will never seen anything like this again! So let's enjoy Ms. Robin Strasser while we can. The Emmy Award-winning actress will last be seen on OLTL August 25, though it's not exactly by choice. Last May, Strasser told ABC she'd need to exit the series to deal with a severely bad back that's plagued her for years. She had hoped to stay working through most of August — meaning she'd air well into the fall — but she claims the network abruptly cut her loose as part of a major summer cast purge. TV Guide Magazine spoke with Strasser about her imminent departure, what really went down between her and ABC (the network denies her version of things, but more on that later), and her plans for the future. Will the unsinkable Strasser make the move with OLTL to the Internet?...
Vive la difference! Former General Hospital baddie Ted King is cleaning up his act and moving to One Life to Live on January 21 as a struggling Parisian artist simply known as Tomas. The mystery man's last name is hush-hush for now because it'll eventually be revealed that he's related to a certain someone in Llanview. He'll also be the new love interest for Blair Cramer, the heartbreak heroine played by Kassie DePaiva. The plot: Blair jets to Paris to track down Tomas — whom she's never met — to find out why he painted a portrait of her. It's not just any portrait, but one copied from a photo taken of Blair at one of her weddings to Todd (back when Roger Howarth was playing the role...cue the Howarth rumors!).

Maybe this will help put those pesky cancellation rumors to rest. TV Guide Magazine has exclusively learned from ABC that the network recently struck new deals with ...

"Auntie Em! Auntie Em!" Tornado season arrives during May sweeps on ABC's One Life to Live, and Llanviewers will literally be swept off their feet.
"There's a tornado happening after Michael and Marcie's wedding," Renée Elise Goldsberry (Evangeline) tells TVGuide.com. "I am going to go blind. But you know what? Somehow I plan to have hair that looks good windblown. The blind thing will be realistic, but my hair is always gonna be too good to be true. It's a soap! You have to keep it glamorous."
The divine Ms. Goldsberry — who is a Daytime Emmy contender for Outstanding Supporting Actress — says she snagged her nomination by submitting tape of Vangie's breakup with supercop John McBain (Michael Easton). But will Vangie ever find a man to call her own? Hey, she may soon get two! OLTL executive producer Frank Valentini hints to TVGuide.com that she'll be torn between Todd (Trevor
