James Franco Talks 'General Hospital'
James Franco is getting excited about his General Hospital gig!
The 31-year-old actor spoke with New York magazine about his GH role, what he filmed on Monday and how soaps are different from movies…
On a cameo he filmed: “I was filming 30 Rock today. It was very fun. I worked with Tina Fey a little bit over the summer on the movie Date Night….I play myself but a very strange version.”
On what filming a soap’s like: “They gave me a script for the day that was as thick as a film script and that’s what we planned to shoot in a single day. No ad-libbing.
“If I needed it, they said they had a TelePrompTer, but the regulars didn’t use it so I didn’t want to use it, either.”
On the difference between soaps and movies: “[Y]ou do one take. They’re going for one take because they have about four cameras for each setup.
“It’s one take: You do the whole scene and then you’re on to the next. That’s three or four pages in a moment.”
