Getting Into Character: James Franco on General Hospital


Attention all you freaks and geeks out there: one day, you too could become a mobster.

Although he had memorable roles in both Milk and Pineapple Express last year, is comfortable enough to tackle television once again. But this time around, Franco won’t be appearing in a primetime series. Late next week, the 31-year-old will begin a two-month stint on General Hospital as a mysterious man in black.

In an interview with New York Magazine, the actor explained why a daytime drama seemed appealing.

Well ... I’ve got other ideas for my participation in this soap opera beyond just being in this . But it’s been a blast so far. It was kind of mind-blowing. I’ve worked one day on it. It’s one day of a few. But I think we packed seven episodes of my material in. They gave me a script for the day that was as thick as a film script and that’s what we planned to shoot in a single day. No ad-libbing. If I needed it, they said they had a TelePrompTer, but the regulars didn’t use it so I didn’t want to use it, either. Anyway, I’m pretty good at remembering lines.

And I’m sure the fact that Franco and (Jason Morgan) share a manager had nothing to do with this decision at all…

Look for James to make his first appearance on November 20.
