From 'General Hospital' to prime time: James Franco to guest star on '30 Rock'

November 4, 2009 | 10:47 am

Franco Tuesday, we got our first look at James Franco on "General Hospital." His guest-starring stint -- specifics of the daytime role remain unknown -- hits the air Nov. 20.

Today, Entertainment Weekly reports that the "Pineapple Express" star will appear on "30 Rock" as himself in a story line involving a staged PR-baiting romance with Jane Krakowski's Jenna. 

He's no David Hasselhoff, but maybe Franco can get Germans, who apparently don't find Tina Fey too funny, to tune in.

Correction: A previous version of this post stated that the air date for Franco's appearance would be on the 30th. It has been corrected.
