James Franco is heading back to ‘General Hospital’ in the midst of Oscar season
HollywoodNews.com: Even though James Franco has come a long way this year, given his buzz worthy performance in 127 Hours, the man has not forgotten his roots. Franco will be returning to his old home at General Hospital for a small, two-episode stint airing the Friday before the Oscars ceremony and the day after. Sources say it will act as a teaser for a longer story arc that Franco will be embarking upon in 2011.
Some may find it strange that after reaching a new height of his career that Franco would still want to return to his old gig, but apparently, Franco is extremely gracious to GH for helping him flex his acting muscles and helping him land the part in Danny Boyle’s 127 Hours.
“James has been very gracious in crediting us,” says GH producer, Jill Farren Phelps. “Apparently, we worked his memorization muscle to the point where he was able to blow Boyle out of the water.” TV Guide reports.
Franco; a truly class act who gets excited by his craft, no matter what the budget.
