James Franco’s stint on General Hospital officially starts tomorrow, but he made his debut today. According to the Speakeasy, Franco appeared on GH this afternoon playing a swarthy bum spray painting on a wall. Sounds about right. And since ABC knows most people who are actually excited about Franco’s guest role will be at work tomorrow, they’ve released a couple clips to convince you to set that DVR.
In the first clip Franco hides behind a dumpster as he watches guys in leather jackets shoot at each other. Then he emerges and gives the shooters a creepy wave. In the second clip he locks lips with a girl (Naomi from Lost!) while “Mad World” plays in the background. And then, in that very soap-opera-y voice, mysteriously says “They’re expecting me.” DVR set!
