James Franco To Guest Star in Multi-Episode Story Arc on Soap Opera General Hospital

Not a Joke: James Franco To Appear on General Hospital

It's not April Fool's, I have not started abusing substances, this is an actual news story: James Franco is set to guest star on daytime soap opera General Hospital.

Oh and it's not just some walk-on role as a favor or a dare: Franco will star in a multi-episode arc, which will last for about two months, and he'll play a "mysterious character" (of course he will). What's more, he apparently approached General Hospital himself with the idea. His first episode will air on November 20.

This whole story is kind of too crazy to not believe, so let's just go with it. Admittedly, I used to watch General Hospital back in the day, so I am so going to set my TiVo to watch this.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you think this is all an elaborate bit, or could Franco be a closet soap fan? Most importantly, are you going to tune in?

Oops I mean, like an attitude that is remnant from 60s' sexism and their attitudes toward women as a demographic and as a whole.

Soaps aren't as bad as people making out to be I think since they were used to peddle products to housewives people look at them disdainfully but that seems like a remanant from 60 sexism. I guess what I'm saying is that soaps don't have to be bad, not all soap fans are stupid (some maybe but not all) and this could be interesting. I'll watch.

I have been a GH fan my whole life, and to hear that Jonathan Jackson is coming back as Lucky made my week. Now James Franco, a big time actor who I happen to love is coming to Port Charles?? I am so psyched! Let's hope that there is a little less mob/Spinelli concentration during the arc so that the full potential of all of the characters can be reached. Cannot. Wait.

:cheer: I am such a fan of GH and having Franco join in the the soap-action is going to be fun to watch. It has been awhile since a well-known, quality actor has stopped by Port Charles (sorry, Vincent Patstore does not count <em>too</em> much in my book :P ) so maybe this will help bring back former & new fans to the show.

ilanac13, how can you not like him? LOL I think he's kinda funny and maybe a stoner like GeneParmesar said. And he's very talented. I don't get why Josh Brolin was nominated for Milk and James and Diego Luna didn't...

See this is how you keep tongues wagging and people interested. Not sex tapes, fake marriages,DWIs, staged photo ops. You act in a soap opera not turn your life into one, James Franco is so weird I love it.

i actually like GH but i'm not a fan of JF so i think that maybe he should stick to his movies and going to school.
