Is Rapper RIFF RaFF Spoofing James Franco's Version of Him On One Life to Live?

Here’s a clever little bit of casting news! When rapper RIFF RaFF taped scenes this week of One Life to Live in their Connecticut studios, he played a fictional shady Miami art dealer by the name of “Jamie Franko”! Sound familiar?  That’s because the people at Prospect Park and One Life to Live apparently gave a little nudge to Oscar nominee James Franco because in the past, RiFF RaFF had claimed that Franco’s character in the controversial movie Spring Breakers is based on him — a charge Franco sort of denied!

According to EW.com, “While Franco did admit, in an interview with GQ, that Riff Raff “was one of a number of people we looked at” for inspiration for his character, a cornrows’d, gold-toothed hustler named Alien, he has said a Florida rapper named Dangeruss was his real muse. Franco elaborated on Dangeruss’ impact on his character in the Harmony Korine-directed film at length in a self-penned story for MTV.  Riff Raff has been pretty public with his feelings about Franco’s public statements.”

So are the peeps at One Life jockeying to get James Franco to Llanview?  Is this just good juicy PR?  What do you think of RiFF RaFF playing the role of “Jamie Franko”?  Let us know your thoughts!

Now im going to do a spoof of soap fans who insists certain actors and their characters belong on certain shows: NO, JAMES FRANCO DOESNT BELONG ON OLTL…HE BELONGS ON GH WHERE HE ORIGINALLY GUEST STARRED, AND BECAUSE OF COPYWRITE LAWS HE CANT PLAY A SIMILIAR CHARACTER ON OLTL EVEN REMOTELY CLOSE TO HIS GH ROLE UNLESS BOTH PP AND ABC AGREE TO SHARE! IF HE PLAYS HIMSELF…OK! LMAO!!!

GH a joke? How? Its the only soap getting the most tv coverage, the ratings are up, and is the most talked about! OLTL sounds great but we wont know til we see it or if itll get good ratings! Maybe itll be the joke? I want both GH and OLTL to be success stories…in spite of abc we should continue to support the genre not knock it down by hoping one gets cancelled! If i dont like OLTL and stop watching it im still going to wish it gets enough viewers to keep it successful for years to come.… Read more »

Right this is the final cut for One Life For Sorry Excuse For A Soap
And guess what If PP successes ABC will pocket money from it.
So watch OLTL 2.0 ABC still wins.

GH will continue to air online and on screen!!!

Enjoy you Porno Park

That’s not James Franco o.0
James Franco is a professional working with GH talented actors
And unless Rift Raft is a psychotic serial killer that brutally raped a woman during her honeymoon
I don’t see the similarities James Franco is talent
General Hospital is Gold
One Life To Cheep Imitation Of A Soap

Back off James Franco he is for General Hospital

You are all missing the point with this. It’s not about GH at all. They never mentioned Franco from GH. They are talking just about the actor. He was recently in a movie called Spring Breakers and his character looked like this tragic RIFF RaFF person.

All My Children

Kim Delaney on All My Children Primetime Reboot: “All They Have To Do Is Ask, and I’m There”

While Kim Delaney is currently appearing on General Hospital in the role of Jackie Templeton, and she just appeared in her new Lifetime movie, The Long Island Serial Killer: A Mother’s Hunt of Justice, the actress revealed she would be up for appearing in the upcoming primetime revival in development of All My Children.

Delaney became soap-famous in the role of AMC’s Jenny Gardner from 1981-1984 before she was killed-off the show in the now iconic jet ski explosion.

Now even though Jenny died, Kim would be up for figuring out how the character could be resurrected or how she could take part in the primetime reboot of the ABC soap opera called, Pine Valley.

In an interview with Soaps.com, Kim shared on being part of the reboot: “All they have to do is ask, and I’m there.  Sure, Jenny died, but someone asked me the other day if we ever saw her body. So maybe she’s out there, somewhere… ”

Former All My Children stars and real-life duo, Kelly Ripa and Mark Consuelos are executive producers of Pine Valley along with Andrew Stearn.

So, would you like to see an alive and well Jenny Gardner, or some other role for Delaney, in the All My Children reboot? Comment below.

‘Passions’ Alum Gerardo Celasco Cast in ABC Drama Pilot ‘National Parks’

Gerardo Celasco, formerly known to soap fans as Adrian Bellani (Ex-Miquel, Passions), has been cast as one of the lead roles in a new drama on tap and in the works for ABC.

The series called National Parks, follows a small group of elite national parks service agents as they solve crimes while protecting the parks — which, while being known for their sweeping, beautiful landscapes, also attract a vast array of criminal activity.

According to Deadline, Celasco will take on the role of Lincoln Kane, a fearless ISB Special Agent who is haunted by his past and carries the world on his shoulders. Lincoln’s commitment is never in question as he finds his own way to go above and beyond the call.

The actor will also appear in the Swimming with Sharks drama series reboot, and was previously seen on How to Get Away with Murder, Next, and the film Moneyball.

Celasco played Miquel Lopez-Fitzgerald on the the now defunct NBC soap classic, Passions from 2000-2007.

So, intrigued to see Gerardo back on your TV screens? Comment below.
