James Franco Cast as Mysterious Man on 'General Hospital'


James Franco
Said willing to do everything in his career, the 'Spider-Man' actor is joining the daytime series although he won't come near the hospital.


In somewhat an odd move, James Franco has decided to join the cast of "General Hospital". More surprisingly, his cameo in the soap opera is not only for a one-time stint but rather for a lengthy story arc that stretches up to two months.

Franco, who is in the pinnacle of his feature movie career, will be a mystery person who comes to Port Charles. Fancast said that the character is going toe-to-toe with resident mob thug and the character Jason Morgan. His stint begins on November 20 and will continue up to January next year.

"It's an honor that an actor of Franco's caliber would choose to spend some of his valuable time in Port Charles," Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps told USA Today. Franco is scheduled to be on the set once a week to do several episodes at one time.

James Franco has received a Golden Globe for his role in "Pineapple Express" (2008). He also played a prominent role in Oscar-winning movie "Milk" (2008). This "General Hospital" cameo will mark his return to television since portraying James Dean in the TNT TV movie, "James Dean".
