James Franco Reveals Why Franco Can’t Get Enough of GH’s Jason Morgan

TV Guide Magazine’s Michael Logan chatted with James Franco on what is up with his alter ego’s bromance with General Hospital’s Jason Morgan (Steve Burton).

TV Guide Magazine: Let’s talk about your character. What drives Franco? What’s his obsession with Jason really all about?

Franco: Franco is an artist who works with death. He works in a lot of different ways. He does graffiti, performances, photographs. He creates installations based on murder scenes featuring murders he possibly was involved with. He’s interested in pushing the boundaries of art — both aesthetically and ethically — and he will go way too far. There are a lot of artists working today who go too far.

After a interesting conversation on how far an artist will go for their work, the actor finally gives an insight as to why his character is obsessed with Jason.

TV Guide Magazine: So back to the question. What’s driving Franco?
Jason is a master assassin who’s murdered a lot of people and gotten away with it, which is very attractive to Franco. He likes that danger. [Long thoughtful pause] There’s an underlying sexiness to that….if that’s what you’re getting at. Yes, there’s a underlying sexiness to that connection.

    Jason and Franco sittin’ in a tree………K-I-S-S-I-N-G!!!

    LOL!!!! I agree that Guza needs to turn Jason into a bisexual man, and REALLY push the envelope!!! Of course, he’ll never do it, but…….he should!!!!!!!!!

    Disagree. Jason’s straight. Why would Jason want to sleep be with a psychopath? That makes no sense.

    Frankly, it’s really cliche that Franco is a queer psycho. Isn’t making a queer guy a murderous freak far easier than making him a normal guy?

    ABC execs can deal with serial killer gays and not a nice gay cop.

    I wasn’t implying that my PERSONAL DESIRE to see Jason and Franco together made sense, or that it was logical. I was merely stating that I believe that Steve Burton and James Franco, if they WERE gay and Franco’s character weren’t a psychotic killer, would be a hot pairing. Call me crazy and call me horny, but don’t take me seriously. I was simply being silly. I don’t expect other posters to UNDERSTAND my sense of humor all the time.

    P.S—I know Jason’s straight. I have been watching GH for a while now, and if the writers were gonna make him gay or bisexual, I am sure they would’ve done it a long time ago….

    I am not sure if Franco is gay or “queer” as you put it…but I doubt it. He is probably just a psychopath. And I agree that ABC Daytime is homophobic. I wish I could reinvent the wheel, but I am just a lowly guy who likes to blog about the soaps…..I have no power or deed!! LOL!!!!

    Josstheguy, still on Team FraSon. Sorry, but Jason and Franco will be hot together, LOL. They have inappropriate chemistry and GH should just go there, but will not, LOL. I feel that Franco has a kindred sprint with Stone Cold and just pulling his tail.

    If Jason will become gay he has to be with Sonny that was his first real love!!!

    Hell, Jason wouldn’t even have to change his name. “JaSon” (Jason/Sonny)…

    Thats the truth SaSon forever and ever….
    No one will come between them… even Franco found it out the hard way when Jason refuse to play his game…

    I was so waiting for Carter to whip out a note from Franco. Franco’s note would say, “Do you like me Jason check ‘yes’ or ‘no'”. It is so obvious that Franco is the emotionally needy one in this relationship. :-)
