James Franco returns to 'General Hospital' for pre-Oscars cameo
We assume most Oscar hosts prepare for the high profile gig with endless rehearsals and bunker sessions with their writers. But James Franco? Heck no. The eccentric leading man will head back to "General Hospital."
ABC announced this week that Franco will return to "General Hospital" for two episodes on Friday, February 25 and Monday, February 28, the two episodes sandwiching the Oscars, which Franco will co-host with Anne Hathaway.
As if that isn't enough, Franco is also expected to be nominated for an Oscar that weekend for "127 Hours."
ABC is being naturally vague about Franco's third tour of "General Hospital" duty, saying only that "he'll reprise the role of artist Franco and will again wreak havoc on mobster Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) among other Port Charles residents."
Of course he will.
The big question: Come February, will Franco still be sporting this killer mustache?
