James Franco Joins General Hospital Cast

In today’s “WTF?!!?” casting news, Soaps in Depth reports that James Franco will be joining the cast of General Hospital for two months.

Yes, that James Franco. The one who, you know, has a very successful movie career and has no need for playing around with soap operas?

A source says that Franco—who’s also currently taking classes at Columbia University and NYU—will be on the set one day a week, during which time he will film several episodes. A rep for the long-running soap says that Franco’s first airdate will be Friday, November 20.

Let us know in the comments section: Does this make any kind of sense? At all?
