RUMOR REPORT: Will James Franco's Real Life Mother Play His Mom on GH?




Whatever Jimmy wants, Jimmy gets. Don't be surprised if you see movie star James Franco's real life mother Betsy portraying mommy weirdest to his whacked out character Franco this summer on General Hospital. Word is the actor wants his mom to play the part. Hmm, maybe Mama Franco can shed some light as to why Franco likes to masturbate to Jason Morgan wall posters after killing people for art's sake? Or not.

Oh Lawd, GH has turned into a family affair.
Now the other storylines have to be put on hold while James Franco comes back.
WTF!!!!

Well, Guza should just have Franco seduce Jason then and be done with it.

STUPID.     I enjoy James Franco....on the big screen and in my dvd player.   This show has a wealth of good characters and actors that it doesn't already utilize.....   And now to make room for these 2   , Who is going to losescreen time now ?   It would be one thing if the first go around of Franco was a success....

Hardly anyone wants to see Franco come back; why would anyone want his mom?

 This is exactly the problem with ABC Daytime. The Franco bit did nothing for ratings next time, now they have him on and he's calling the shots for his mom to play the role? Shoot me now. We wouldn't, you know, want a scene with Leslie Charleson who's been on the show 30 years or maybe have Denise Alexander come on to have a scene with the grandkids, let's by all means let Franco call the shots and demand his mom be in the role. ABC's priorities are so twisted.

Hmmm......still no Bobbie, Monica, Edward, Alice or any of the other characters who are still sitting in the wicker cabinet collecting dust??? I tolerate James Franco because he's cute, has a nice smile, and because I am still hoping for some romantic action between him and Jason (tongue in cheek humor.....         ), but why should I tolerate his mama???? I'm sure she's a nice woman, but hasn't this show exhausted it's stunt casting quota for the next year or so?????

I have never heard of Betsy Franco (If that's her last name), and I'm not interested enough to even bother googling her. Is she even an actress?

Betsy Franco, according to Wikipedia, is a writer, poet and author......which makes me wonder if she can even act. I really don't feel like watching her LEARN how to act onscreen!! Some people should stick with what they know, and leave the acting to the professionals. Just sayin....

P.S-- If I've said it once, I've said it a THOUSAND times....nepotism is a bitch!!!

Why don't they just get the entire Franco family to come in and play the Quartermaines?  It's probably the only way that family would get any airtime.

Here's a positive thought:  what if this latest foray into Franoland gives the writing team time to right this sinking ship?  Guza wrote the last Frano farce himself, he'll probably do it again, giving the other writers time to clean up  the other sls.

LOL, Guza wants Franco to bring Jason to meet the mom to get her approval.
