Yes, you read the headline correctly. James Franco, who's starred in all three Spider Man films, Milk, Pineapple Express, and tons of other movies -- is joining the cast of General Hospital.
He'll be playing a mysterious character -- the details are too hot to share now -- who will interact with most of Port Charles and in particular, make Jason's life a living hell. Expect James to start airing on November 20th and he'll appear on the show for multiple weeks.
The coolest part about this? James approached General Hospital about joining the cast.
"We are thrilled to announce that James Franco will play an integral part in a lengthy run on General Hospital this fall. It's an honor that an actor of James' caliber would choose to spend some of his valuable time in Port Charles," said Jill Farren Phelps, GH's executive producer.
You can bet as more news develops, we'll have it here.
