General Hospital Promo Reveals James Franco Character

at . Comments

James Franco is getting ready to make his soap opera debut.

The movie star premieres on the November 20 episode of General Hospital and he recently told that working on the drama "has been a blast so far."

He said he crammed seven episodes into one day of shooting and:

“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."

The actor will appear on the program as an evil artist named Franco. You can actually see him in action below:

Franco will also guest star on 30 Rock as a love interest for Jenna. Regarding that role, he said:

“I play myself but a very strange version. I don’t think it has anything to do with who I actually am.”
