James Franco's 'General Hospital' Debut: WATCH (VIDEO)

Friday James Franco began his 'lengthy arc' on 'General Hospital,' in which he plays a vagrant performance artist named Franco who visits Port Charles to exhibit his work. The Hollywood A-lister's soap opera turn is all a meta part of some art film he's making with Carter, his frequent artistic collaborator who was responsible for the short 'Erased James Franco.'

Below you can watch a clip from Franco's first 'GH' appearance in which he lurks in the shadows, wearing fingerless gloves and eating a snack while watching the local mobsters shoot each other. Tune in to see what he does with the information he harbors.
