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?

    As a long time gh-er I don't dare ask "why".... I'm just thrilled to see what he'll be doing and that its giving the show a chance at gaining some new viewers and a ratings boost :)
