I can hardly believe the news but Milk star James Franco is headed to Daytime Soap, General Hospital! Not only is he is going to have a short-term role but TVGuide.com is reporting that is was HIS idea!
“He loves to explore the different types of acting that are available and had never done soaps and was really interested in the amount of work soap actors do—he wanted to try it out,’ says the network rep, noting that Franco contacted GH directly. “Basically, the attitude from the writers and producer is, ‘When you pick up the phone and it’s James Franco saying he wants to work with you, the only answer you have is, ‘Yes!’” Adds the rep with a laugh: “There’s an open invitation to any other A-List movie stars who want to come to General Hospital.”
The star will film his scenes on three different days, October 30, November 6 and November 13—and they will air over the course of two months. His first airdate is set for November 20th.
I wonder what role he will play?! This is gonna be fun to see!!
