Alderson, Easton And Howarth To Play New GH Roles

TV Guide is reporting that ABC has opted out of its legal wrangling with Prospect Park over the fate of the three actors — Kristen Alderson, Michael Easton and Roger Howarth — who are under contract to the network, but the rights to whose characters are in Prospect Park's domain, precipitating the departures last week of Starr, John and Todd. As a result, the trio are expected to return to GH, but not as their Llanview-to-Port Charles incarnations; rather, they will be playing new characters. Howarth will, however, reprise the role of Todd for a short-term stint on the online relaunch of OLTL this spring. For more, click here:
