The 33-year-old actor will return to the show for the fourth time on September 20, a rep for the soap told TV Guide Magazine, adding that will be a “longterm” story arc.

James Franco Gets Artsy for 'General Hospital'

James Franco is taking his General Hospital character, Franco, to a whole new level by bringing him into the NYC art world!

NYMag reports that the 31-year-old actor will participate in a gallery show at NYC’s Deitch Projects for an upcoming “special episode” of the soap he’ll be co-directing.

James wrote an editorial for the Wall Street Journal last month explaining why he wanted to guest star on GH, explaining that he considers it experimental performance art.

“No matter how far I got into the character, I was going to be perceived as something that doesn’t belong to the incredibly stylized world of soap operas,” he wrote.
