James Franco—yes, that James Franco—is joining the cast of General Hospital in November for at least a few weeks. In fact, Franco—whose movie credits include Pineapple Express, Milk, and all three Spider-Man flicks—asked the soap’s producers for a role, reports Soapnet. They were only too happy to accommodate. No details yet on the role.
“We are thrilled to announce that James Franco will play an integral part in a lengthy run on General Hospital this fall,” says the show's executive producer.
