Okay, I know it might seem like I can't stop talking about him but James Franco is really throwing me for a loop with this whole General Hospital thing. I mean WTF? It seems crazy to me that an actor with his current resumé would sign on to star in a soap. It weird but I also find something kind of cool about it. A true actor likes to challenge themselves, right? And that seems like it would mean trying all kinds of different work. I'm sure being on a soap opera is hard work, they certainly film enough episodes so I imagine the schedule is exhausting. Kudos to him for realising that acting is acting and if a part comes along that interests you, who cares if it's day time TV and you have to play opposite characters like Sonny Corinthos. It's all just another reason to love this guy.
Thanks Salon, I'm in total agreement with you!
