Very sad news to report this afternoon.  Actor James Franco,  who this week is back on General Hospital as “Franco”,  father Doug apparently passed away suddenly last week and the news has just been released. He was 63.

According to Showbiz 411.com’s, Roger Freedman, “The news was just released by the family late tonight. Doug had a Harvard MBA and was a long time entrepreneur in the Silicon Valley. He leaves his wife Betsy, mother of James, actor Dave and brother Tom. Doug Franco, who was of Swedish and Portugese descent, was one of the nicest guys you could hope to meet. He was also extremely proud of his sons.”

Freedman went on to talk about how proud Doug was of his multi-talented son, James, “During Oscar week how awed Doug was by James’s recent accomplishments and whirlwind of activity– a nomination, the hosting, the school stuff, all of it. And it was with Doug that I happened to walk up the stairs to the stage of the Kodak Theater when the Academy Awards ended this year. He was so eager to congratulate James and take family pictures. A lovely guy, gone way too soon. Condolences to the Franco and Verne families.”

On-Air On-Soaps also sends out our thoughts and prayers to James and his family on this terrible loss.
