General Hospital’s James Franco (“Franco”) has done it again.  This time he has come up with yet another interesting and unique twist in his career.  In the October issue of Candy Magazine, James is appearing on the cover in drag issue complete with thick blue eye shadow, black liner, candy-red lips and womens clothing.

According to the LongIslandPress.com, “While this will undoubtedly raise questions about Franco’s sexuality, the 32-year-old heartthrob-turned-artist is no stranger to gay rumors. “Everyone thinks I’m a stoner, and some people think I’m gay because I’ve played these gay roles,” Franco said. “That’s what people think, but it’s not true. I don’t smoke pot. I’m not gay…”

This is just one in a series of surprise moves from the actor and perpetual student, who in the last few years has starred in the Spiderman franchise, enrolled in four graduate programs simultaneously (and as a Ph.D. candidate at Yale), debuted a puzzling solo art exhibit in a NYC gallery and dabbled as a Soap star with a stint on General Hospital.

Candy’s creator, Luis Venegas, describes the magazine as “the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.This is only Candy’s second issue–the inaugural issue featured British model (and ex-fiance of Kelly Osbourne) Luke Worrall on the cover.”

Chloe Lanier’s New Short Film ‘The Reveal’ Releases First Trailer

As previously reported, Chloe Lanier, the actress who plays naughty Nelle Benson on ABC’s General Hospital, has been busy at work on a special project. And while Nelle is upset having just been denied parole on the ABC soap opera, (something tells us nothing will stop her from getting out of the slammer), Lanier on the other hand has been very excited about her new short film, The Reveal.

The Reveal in which Lanier stars, co-wrote, and co-directed along with her boyfriend, Kevan McClellan also has some very familiar faces along for the ride from Port Charles and Genoa City. That’s because Brytni Sarpy (Elena, Y&R) and Josh Swickard (Chase, GH) are also part of the film.

The action takes place at a gender reveal party for a baby, and according to the loglines of the short: “Zoe and James are a young couple attending their new-age friends gender reveal party. As they attempt to find their place amongst the eclectic group of party guests and friends, unsung wishes and hidden resentments begin to surface within their relationship.”

Watch the trailer from Lanier below.

WATCH: Jonathan Jackson + Enation’s New Music Video “The Days Are Evil”

Five-time Daytime Emmy winner from General Hospital, and former Nashville star, Jonathan Jackson (Ex-Lucky, Ex-Avery) has released a new music video for the new single “The Days Are Evil” along with his band Enation.

The music video features shots of Jackson in a very dark incarnation, and the track will also appear on Jackson + Enation’s upcoming album due out later this fall, Ultraviolet Empire.

Jonathan says of the new album: “Our new album, Ultraviolet Empire, is a throwback record. It’s a record we played together live in the studio. Most of the songs are one take -just letting the band play.  It was amazing playing with our co-producer Colin Linden and capturing something so raw and visceral.”

This will be the band’s follow-up to their 2017 album  Anthems for the Apocalypse and their successful 2018 tour in Europe opening for Echo & The Bunnymen,

Check out the music video featuring Jonathan released this week below.

Then, let us know, should Lucky return to Port Charles for the Nurses’ Ball with his band and play a tune off the new album next spring? Will Jonathan come home to GH for a guest appearance? Will you be checking out the new music from him in the coming months? Comment below.
