Prospect Park Wants GH’s John, Starr & Todd For OLTL

According to a report from TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan, Prospect Park wants the characters of Starr, John, and Todd back so they can write for them on their canvas for the online revival of One Life, which has caused some heavy drama over at ABC and General Hospital.

We have also heard in recent interview and reports, GH’s executive producer Frank Valentini, was hopeful that the trio of characters and the actors who play then could stay on GH, however acknowledging that the legal departments of both entities have to work this one out.

One of the big complications is that Roger Howarth (Todd), Michael Easton (John), and Kristen Alderson (Starr) are under contract to ABC, so theoretically Starr, John, and Todd could go away, but the people playing them would stay with the network. An ABC spokesperson told TV Guide: “There are ongoing collaborative conversations with Prospect Park. We have various strategies in place depending on the outcome of these talks.”

John and Starr can go. Especially Star :frustration:

Eh between the horrible call to pursue the Todd baby switch storyline and Maxie passing Spinelli's baby off as Lulu and Dante's I'm cool with them leaving this show and creating something watchable. Maybe LW will follow when GH gets axed.

I've gotten used to these characters, particularly Todd and Starr, on GH. McBain I could probably leave or take aside from the fact that he has a ton more chemistry with Sam than Borg Jason ever had. I am rooting for the One Life to Live revival to succeed so I'm not totally sure where I stand on this yet.

I don't really care on which show the characters end up, but what I definitely don't want to see is the actors remaining on GH in different roles than they're already playing. That would just be stupid.

I am mixed on this. I want the reboot to work but I feel like these three characters are so much a part of GH now that I don't want to see them go. I also wonder if the actors would relocate back east to play those roles. RH and KA didn't sign up last time so why would they this time. I don't really want to see other actors in those roles. I think PP would be smart to be able to come up with a deal where the actors can be on both as a way to cross promo. I bet there are viewers that didn't get to know these characters until they got on GH that would follow to see what the are up to when they go to Llanview to visit.

Of the three the only one I want to stay in PC is Todd! I enjoy his antics!

Starr can just ... go.

John's not working on GH. I agree, move him back to OLTL. There's at least story to tell with him and Natalie and Liam.

Todd, I wish we could have him on both shows LOL. I think I'd prefer him to stay on GH though. I want, if Kassie signs on to OLTL2.0, for Blair to have someone other than Todd. I really want to see them bring James DePaiva back as Max.

As a huge ONE LIFE fan, and GH fan also, I'm torn. But as of now, I think Roger Howarth(Todd) should probably go back to ONE LIFE since it seems his story is about done on GH, his secret is out, his relationships with Starr & Carly are done for (although I could see Carly going back to him since she always loves the bad boy), and keep Michael Easton(John) & Kristen Alderson(Starr) on GH. ABC should allow them to make guest appearances on ONE LIFE. John & Sam are a good couple imho, plus after the way he's been written on GH, I don't want him back with Natalie. He's treated her and Liam like shit. Starr & Michael are good together too.

John and Starr can stay on GH in background roles. HATE them as leads.

Todd can come back to OLTL if RoHo wants to do it....

THIS IS TRUE. Kristen Alderson immediately made plans to move to Los Angeles when the show was cancelled in April of 2011 so even if the character of Starr Manning is brought back to the online version, I don't see Alderson inhabiting the role.

Perhaps she will stay on General Hospital in a newly created role?

I've grown to enjoy the OLTL actors on GH, however since OLTL is going online, I hope they can sign on.
Not a major loss for GH if they leave.

I thought Carlivati did a fantastic job integrating Starr, Todd and John into GH's stories. But they do belong on OLTL.

John really doesnt belong anywhere. He never fit in on OLTL and is pretty interchangable on any show.

Todd and Starr, yeah they belong in Llanview. But if neither of the actors are willing to go to CT, and they werent last year, then PP needs to let them stay where they are rather than wreck it for everyone. Use it as an opportunity for cross promotion with the pair referencing Llanview/Blair events.

I really don't dislike Michael Easton. I just think John is a terrible character all around. He really doesn't fit in anywhere honestly.

Todd and Blair aren't together, so they could easily give her a new man. They've done it many times to success.
