James Franco is headed back to the small screen for a brief appearance on General Hospital. The actor's character, called Franco, first appeared on the show in 2009, and now TV Guide reports that he's returning. This will be his second time shooting for the soap, for a "two-episode stint airing the Friday before the Oscar telecast and the day after. It'll serve as a teaser for a longer story arc he plans to do on the serial later in 2011." Executive producer Jill Farren Phelps says, "He's also expressed an interest in directing at GH. He's been really, really good to us. Whatever James wants, we'd love to make it happen!" Really Jill, anything?
