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.

‘This Is Us’ Star Milo Ventimiglia to Appear in Season 4 of ‘Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’

After speculation a few years back that at some point, Milo Ventimiglia would find his way onto the hit comedy, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, that would reunite him with his former Gilmore Girls boss, Amy Sherman-Palladino, now appears to be coming true!

News out of TV Line reports that Milo will guest star in season four of the series.  However, details of who he will play are being kept under wraps.

Ventimiglia will be the second cast member from This Is Us to appear on Maisel, following Sterling K. Brown who appeared in season 3.

The fourth season of the Amazon Prime series has been in production since January – after plenty of stops and starts due to Covid-19 and restrictions.

Gilmore Girl fans remember Ventimiglia as Jess Mariano, the troubled love interest of Rory Gilmore.

Ventimiglia will also wrap his time as Jack on This Is Us, when the show finishes its upcoming sixth and final season of the NBC drama.

So, what role do you think Milo might play on The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
