pop culture BLOW OFF of the day: we can't afford to hate or love.

When news broke last fall that James Franco was going to be on General Hospital, the overall reaction was: WTF?  I worked with the show at the time and I was equally confused by his apparent interest in soaps.  Now, it seems there was more of a performance art element to Franco's extended cameo, but I don't care.  I'm psyched he's coming back on the show.   I just hope more people tune in to watch this time.

So: if the below clip in all its homo-erotic campiness doesn't entice you to watch, I don't know what will. Let me break it down for you.  Franco plays an artist slash serial killer who's obsessed with GH's staple hit man Jason Morgan.  Franco finally gets to meet the object of his affection and he's sorely disappointed.   It's the worst kind of BLOW OFF: the kind where you realize the person you admire most doesn't live up to your expectations.  Poor Franco!

  1. this happened to me at work. i was obsessed with this guy with basically the same last name as me 'saadi' instead of 'saedi'. he was super cute and i felt the last name thing was fate and not coincidence. the problem was i had never had 1 conversation with the guy. and eventually i did, and he totally lame with a capital L.
