Confirmed: James Franco's momma to GH too!

When James Franco returns to General Hospital this summer for more freaky behavior, as the artist whose canvas is murder “Franco”,  his real-life mother will join him, too!   Daytime Confidential’s, Jamey Giddens broke the story, and now ABC Soaps In Depth is confirming it.

As previously reported, James returns to GH on Wednesday, June 30, and his mom Betsy Franco, will begin a short-term role on Friday, July 2, when Spinelli tracks down “Franco’s” mom.

Wow! There has been a lot of mom’s and their sons on the soaps recently, right? Think of Scott Evans and his mom, Lisa, on One Life to Live!  That makes me ponder: should I have my mom come on On-Air On-Soaps and jump on the bandwagon?

Anyway, should be cool to see Betsy and James together on General Hospital! What did this mother do to make “Franco” such a whack-job? Hmmm.

Does James Franco’s mom have an acting background? I don’t get it. Do the producer’s think that will boost ratings? Well, we will all see how that goes. I do think Franco is excellant all by himself, though….

In the log lines for the movie. it relates: “Executive produced by Victoria Gotti herself, the movie takes us deep into the world of what it was really like to grow up as the daughter of mob boss John Gotti, revealing the glamour, glitz and unique hardships of her world.  Sharing never-before-revealed stories about her life, Victoria (Chelsea Frei) tells of a sensitive child growing up with a beloved father (Maurice Benard) she worried about constantly; the tragedy of her younger brother’s death; and her turbulent romance, forbidden by her father, with the man who later became her husband.  Victoria had a front-row seat to a life the world became fascinated with, all while trying to reconcile the loving father she adored with a man the outside world was determined to bring down. . The film is based on Gotti’s book This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti.  Victoria Gotti will appear on camera narrating.

Benard spoke with ABC Soaps In Depth about taking on the role and wanting to get the performance just right, where he expressed: “That’s up to the audience to decide.  I played him like a real-life guy who’s loyal to his people and loves his family — and that’s kind of what the story is about. It’s through Victoria’s eyes and told with complete compassion.”

As to how playing Gotti compared to his role as Port Charles’ loveable mobster, Sonny Corinthos, Maurice added: “When I was shooting the role, I didn’t really know how different it was from Sonny. But my last day, I wrapped at about 1 in the morning in Canada, flew back and went straight to work as Sonny. I remember shooting the scene and thinking, ‘Wow, Sonny’s in about second gear, Gotti’s in about fourth or fifth gear!’ It’s two different energies.”
