James Franco is joining General Hospital



James Franco
is going the soap opera route, joining the cast of General Hospital for a story arc this fall, ABC reveals. He must have gotten bored while acting as Allen Ginsberg in 2010's Howl.

We are thrilled to announce that James Franco will play an integral part in a lengthy run on General Hospital this fall," executive producer Jill Farren Phelps says. "It's an honor that an actor of James' caliber would choose to spend some of his valuable time in Port Charles."

Yes, indeed, after being killed off in Spider-Man 3, he needed a new franchise character (apparently James approached the show for a role). Expect his run to start on Nov. 20 and continue for several weeks, until he's murdered by his twin sister's roommate and has his brain transplanted into a chimpanzee.
