That's right: James Franco is joining the cast of General Hospital for two months.
Franco, 31, will be playing a mysterious new character who will torment romantically challenged mobster Jason Morgan starting Nov. 20.
According to SoapNet, it was Franco who approached the makers of the soap opera about joining the show.
"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 told SoapNet. "It's an honor that an actor of James' caliber would choose to spend some of his valuable time in Port Charles."
