DC's Top 10 Male Entertainers of 2012
No. 5: Michael Easton, General Hospital
Cartini's decision to bring Michael Easton’s John McBain to General Hospital was one of daytime's best power plays of 2012. Immensely popular on One Life to Live, fans also fondly recalled his time on General Hospital spinoff Port Charles as Caleb, opposite of Kelly Monaco’s Livvie. This time lightning did in fact strike twice. Easton and Monaco proved just as hot together on GH, as they had playing a rock-n-rollin' vampire and his fang banger on PC all those years ago. We can't wait to see vampire slayer-turned-CEO Lucy Coe (Lynn Herring) get a load of those two on this side of Port Charles!
Don't think the silent-but-studly Easton was a one trick pony on GH. McBain's stint in Port Charles' mortal realm also had us wondering what a mentor/mentee sexual match-up between Anna Devane (Finola Hughes) and McBain might have looked like in 2012. This can't be the same character we called McSnore and McBore when he was on OLTL, can it? Again, Jason (Steve Burton), who?
