Multiple James Francos Converge On ‘General Hospital’

James Franco seems to be doing so many different projects, from art gallery movie director to recently appointed Wizard of Oz, that it was only a matter of time before the Francoverse started collapsing in on itself. Evidence:

In this clip from “General Hospital,” which Franco has a recurring character on because he needs to fill the occasional bits of free time in his schedule, his murdering “The Franco” is going to a black tie affair. Could it be…”The Academy Awards?” That sly reference to his role in 127 Hours makes me think “perhaps.” They even worked in his self-portraits and compulsive multi-tasking.

Oh man, does this mean his role as a scientist in Rise of the Apes will somehow tie into Akira? I’m hoping that’s a “yes” too. For now, though, it looks like “General Hospital” is the nexus point between Franco universes. (The Playlist)
