Though this seems like a backwards move for an actor who has had a successful career on the big screen, I’m guessing its actually more of a favor to his manager who also happens to manage GH’s Steve Burton. Franco will play a mystery man who comes to Port Charles and causes problems for Jason Morgan (Burton). His role will play out over a two-month period starting November 20, though he is only scheduled to spend three days actually shooting his scenes in Los Angeles.
But that’s not the last we’ll of James on the small screen. He is also lined up to make a guest appearance on “30 Rock”. On the show, he will play Jenna’s fake boyfriend, a scheme concocted by their respective agents to get them both some much needed publicity.
Franco can be seen on the big screen next in “Date Night” which also co-stars Tina Fey as a wife trying to enjoy a night out with her husband (Steve Carell) when a case of mistaken identity turns their evening upside down. “Date Night” hits theaters April 9, 2010.
