The Colbert Report: Stephen Colbert Asks James if He Will Go Back to General Hospital

In the July 30th episode of Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, James Franco was Stephen Colbert’s guest star. In the interview, Stephen and James discussed his new film Child of God, his degree in English that will give James a new title (Dr.), and much more.

When mentioning Franco’s upcoming accomplishment in education, Colbert jokingly asked him if he would be going back to General Hospital. Get it? A Doctorate degree? Haha. Well James clarifies that he will be receiving this degree in English, but… Are you ready for James Franco’s answer to Stephen Colbert’s question?

James said, “I would be a doctor of English, but I still might go back to General Hospital.”

I don’t know about you all, but this news is extremely exciting to me. James Franco was an amazing talent on General Hospital and it was such an honor for him to play on our beloved favorite soap. James is a man of many talents including acting, painting, directing, and teaching young minds as a professor at UCLA. What he brought to the table at General Hospital was pure, raw, talent which displayed a tremendous amount of mystery, drama, and excitement. As a fan og GH and James Franco, I feel we the fans would be blessed to be graced with his presence on our show again.

Ron Carlivati Wants James Franco Back!

There has been recent rumors that General Hospital’s Head Writer, Ron Carlivati wants James Franco back! It has been said that Carlivati has told Showbiz411 Writer, Roger Friedman, that he is seeking out James Franco for one more stint on the ABC soap, General Hospital. Carlivati wants Franco back on the set, but it would be a little different this time, perhaps to tie up some loose ends with the story. James would be playing himself, and confronting the current “Franco” character, played by Roger Howarth.

James Franco originated the role of Robert Frank, aka “Franco” in November of 2009. He reeked havoc on the residents of Port Charles, terrorizing anyone that had to do with his obsession, Jason Morgan (Steve Burton). Caught in the crossfire were victims such as Samantha McCall Morgan, Carly Corinthos Jacks, Josslyn Jacks, Michael Corinthos Jr., Lulu Spencer, just to name a few.

General Hospital Blog is looking forward to those involved making this a reality. We would love to see James Franco back at GH!
