James Franco Returning to GENERAL HOSPITAL June 30

Award-winning actor James Franco returns to GENERAL HOSPITAL in the role of bad boy performance artist Franco. His first airdate is Wednesday, June 30, just as the summer storyline of the long-running daytime drama gets into high gear.

"We are so thrilled to welcome James back to GENERAL HOSPITAL," says Executive Producer Jill Farren Phelps. "We had such a great time with him and are very excited that he decided to return to Port Charles to take care of unfinished business."

"Working on GENERAL HOSPITAL was a great experience. I love the cast, writers, directors and producers. They have become a new family for me. I can't wait for the work we will do this summer," says Franco.

With Franco's arrival, the multi-award winning daytime drama kicks off its summer story as the wickedly brilliant Franco take the citizens of Port Charles on a wild ride of mystery, music, murder and mayhem. As the artist continues his obsessive vendetta against Jason (Steve Burton), enemies will be forced to work together, Jason and Dante (Dominic Zamprogna) will pursue a tangled web of clues Franco has laid out, the hospital will be in peril, and in a chilling climax, the viewing audience will be treated to performance art the likes of which they've never seen before.

In addition to his appearance on GENERAL HOSPITAL this summer, Franco will soon be seen in Eat Pray Love with Julia Roberts, and has just completed filming 127 Hours, directed by Oscar(r)-winning Danny Boyle, with former GENERAL HOSPITAL actress Amber Tamblyn. Other film roles include the Spider Man trilogy, Milk, Knocked Up and Pineapple Express. In addition Franco won a Golden Globe for his portrayal of James Dean in the miniseries of the same name.
