In an new interview out with The Independent, General Hospital and motion picture star, James Franco details a bit more on how he is using his move to appear on guest stints of the ABC sudser for his new film with his colloborating partner, Carter.  Here is an excerpt!

Franco stated, “Carter and I are going to do another film called Maladies, and in that film I will play a character who was formerly on a soap opera, so that has nothing to do with General Hospital other than it started a conversation between Carter and about how funny it would be if I actually did a soap opera because no one would expect that. So we contacted General Hospital and they said ‘yes’, and they asked me what kind of character I would like to play. All I said is that I really want to be an artist and I want to be crazy, so they wrote that character for me and then asked me if that character could be called Franco. So we did it and there was this big reaction and people were very surprised and I was surprised by their reaction.”

And as many know Franco has decided to return and film a few more episodes, James returns to GH on June 3oth.
