General Hospital: Michael Easton Out

John McBain is soon to be McGone from General Hospital‘s Port Charles.

Daytime TV vet Michael Easton took to his Facebook page on Friday morning to advise fans not to send anything to the ABC soap’s studio for his Feb. 15 birthday, because by then he’ll no longer be hanging his hat there.

“I’ve been informed that, due to some ongoing legal this and that, I cannot be at General Hospital after February 8th,” he shared.

The “legal” matter to which Easton refers stems from the upcoming Hulu/iTunes relaunch of One Life to Live, where his crimefighting character originated. When the media company Prospect Park announced its new plan to revive both OLTL and All My Children, it was with the proviso that it owns all of the sudsers’ characters and thus has first dibs — even on those that have since been relocated to GH.

However, though John McBain seems fated to return to OLTL‘s Llanview, that does not necessarily mean that Easton will be playing him, since the transplanted OLTL actors’ deals are not with Prospect Park but ABC. (Easton’s name was not among the dozen first confirmed for the relaunch, though his leading lady Melissa Archer’s was.)

“[I'm] honestly not sure what the future holds,” Easton added on Facebook, “but I think it’s going to take some time and some very bright people to resolve it.”

Indeed.
