Port Charles has an Oscar nominee in its midst! Well, sort of.

James Franco, who's up for an Academy Award for his work in 127 Hours, is returning to ABC's daytime drama General Hospital as performance artist Franco.

The actor, who is also hosting the Oscars with Anne Hathaway, will appear the soap on episodes airing Feb. 25 and Feb 28 (at 3 p.m. ET) to "wreak havoc" on the fictional town of Port Charles, according to a release from ABC, and to "make an important phone call to his nemesis Jason Morgan" (played by Steve Burton), who appears in a behind-the-scenes shot with Franco.





Following a two-month stint on General Hospital in 2009, Franco reprised his role as the mysterious and dangerous artist in the summer of 2010.

"Working on General Hospital was a great experience," he told PEOPLE at the time. "I love the cast, writers, directors and producers. They have become a new family for me."
