In what might have been the strangest development of 2009, James Franco agreed to do a guest star stint on daytime TV soap opera "General Hospital." It wasn't a put-on either... he really did it!!! So when MTV's Josh Horowitz spoke to Franco at Sundance recently, he of course had to ask for a status update on the appearance.
"There will be one more very special episode that we will film in May, in New York," he said. What about after that? Any chance we'll see Franco doing more daytime TV? "Other soaps have not called," he said, a hint of disappointment in his voice. And who can blame him? That "General Hospital" stuff isn't going to realign the universe, but it sure is fun!
