James Franco is a pro at keeping people on their toes. We already know the guy loves taking on new projects—his latest being guest lecturer at MOMA in New York. But could it be that James is saying no to a project? It seemed that was the case when his return to "General Hospital" was brought up at last night's Rise of the "Planet of the Apes" premiere.
Our own Ben Lyons caught up with the actor on the red carpet and got the info straight from James on his rumored return...
"I'm sad to say that that was a little bit of misinformation," James said. "I don't know why they announced that I would be back in September. I am currently making 'The Wizard of Oz' in Detroit. I am the lead. I am working every day, so I don't know when I would be able to fly back to do any episodes of General Hospital in the near future."
Don't worry too much though, G.H. fans. While James says the immediate future might be up in the air, that doesn't mean he won't be returning one day. "I'm very close with them and I do have plans to do other stuff with them." Guess he finally reached a point where he realized he could only take on so much at one time.
