James Franco to Fake Date Jenna on 30 Rock

at . Comments

James Franco will soon have all possible fan bases covered.

The movie star shocked followers a few weeks ago when he signed on for a multiple-episode arc on General Hospital, which gets underway on November 20.

With the housewife demographic under his belt, the actor is now set on locking in primetime viewers with a sense of humor: he'll also guest star on upcoming 30 Rock episodes.


As first reported by Entertainment Weekly, Franco will appear on the sitcom as himself, as he starts up a fake romance with Jane Krakowski’s Jenna; an arrangement engineered by their respective agents.

In other, quasi 30 Rock news: Alec Baldwin (Jack Donaghy) will co-host the 2010 Academy Awards with Steve Martin. We hope he makes at least one reference to the event's microwave division.
