Exclusive: James Franco heads to '30 Rock'

Posted on

James-Franco-30-Rock_lReady for the latest twist in the incredibly wild and unpredictable career of one James Franco? Sources confirm to me exclusively that the Spider-Man/Milk actor will follow up his upcoming arc on General Hospital with a guest appearance on 30 Rock.

NBC declined to comment, but a Rock-solid insider tells me that Franco (playing himself) will be involved in a faux romance with Jane Krakowski’s Jenna — a relationship engineered by their respective agents. Sound familiar? It’s probably because this is the storyline Tina Fey floated by me at the Emmys way back in September.

”[Jenna gets] into a high-profile relationship with a movie star that is arranged by their agents,” Fey explained at the time (watch the video of our exchange below).

Franco is scheduled to start work on his Rock eppy this week.
