Franco Checks Back Into the Hospital
Summer school will have to wait for Ph.D. candidate and actor James Franco. He's not having any health problems, but he'll be checking back into General Hospital on June 30 to reprise his role as the mysterious Franco. The Date Night star began a two-month stint on the soap opera back in November, and it was announced recently that he'll return to Port Charles in June for a "wild ride of mystery, music, murder and mayhem." The GH crew is pretty excited to have him back: "We are so thrilled to welcome James back to General Hospital," Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps said in a statement. "We had such a great time with him and are very excited that he decided to return to Port Charles to take care of unfinished business." And Franco is equally jazzed about returning to the soap. "Working on General Hospital was a great experience," Franco said in a statement. "I love the cast, writers, directors and producers. They have become a new family for me. I can't wait for the work we will do this summer." Ladies, start your DVRs.
