Just Kidding, James Franco Won’t Be Returning to ‘General Hospital’

James FrancoWell, this is a conundrum. Despite announcements that James Franco would return to the long-running daytime soap, General Hospital, Franco says it’s just not happening.

In an interview with E! News’ Ben Lyons, Franco said:

I’m sad to say that that was a little bit of misinformation,..I don’t know why they announced that I would be back in September. I am currently making The Wizard of Oz in Detroit. I am the lead. I am working every day, so I don’t know when I would be able to fly back to do any episodes of General Hospital in the near future.

So there you have it. James Franco finally admits that having too many jobs makes things harder and he finally says “no” to one of them. Of course, this doesn’t mean “no” forever, just in “the near future.” Something tells us Franco enjoys the drama of it all over at GH and he’ll be back for more as soon as he can find time between starring plays and movies and writing books and recording albums and teaching college classes about himself.
