James Franco is back on 'General Hospital' -- VIDEO

Just in time for his Oscar hosting gig on ABC, James Franco will reprise his memorable role as that oh-so-mysterious artist on General Hospital beginning tomorrow. So why is “Franco” back in town? We’re told he shows up to remind Jason Morgan (Steve Burton) that he’s still around. Or maybe he had something to do with the big explosion that occurred after Sonny and Brenda’s wedding today.

Better yet, perhaps he’s just there to make a few meta jokes about his hosting the Academy Awards (notice the fancy duds he’s wearing in the clip) and his best actor nomination for 127 Hours. Anyhoo, his arc ends Monday.
