Motion picture star James Franco, who has made no bones about how he admirers and loves working with former General Hospital executive producer, Jill Farren Phelps has signed on to appear in a multi-episode arc on Nick at Nite’s upcoming primetime soap, Hollywood Heights!
The shocking announcement to some, came today at the cable network’s upfront presentations. Heights premieres in June and will air five nights a week, telenovela style, but it’s not clear yet when Franco’s arc starts or what his role entails. Vulture.com made a suggestion for the new soapy role for Franco stating, “If there’s a God in TV heaven, though, it’s someone incredibly sage and hilarious.”
So, how do you feel about Franco going to another soap after his recurring guest-stints on General Hospital as “killer” Franco? What do you think would be a good role for James in this new soap about a shy girl who becomes a pop star after winning a songwriting competition, and who along the way, befriends a mega-rock-star — who is of course her celebrity crush?
