And yet another credit to add to the list for superstar James Franco, when tonight he guest stars for a two episode arc on the FOX hit comedy series, The Mindy Project! T

This time the series has fun with James when he plays Dr. Leotard, the charismatic former model who decided to become a doctor after a pregnant woman saved him when he walked off a runway. Expect to see major tension between Dr. Leotard and Mindy as he’s the doctor who filled her spot at Shulman & Associates after she decided to go to Haiti with Pastor Casey!

This isn’t the firs time that ‘Mindy Project’ star, Mindy Kailing and Franco have worked together! In fact, they both played themselves in this summer’s hit comedy This Is the End, which was written and co-directed by season one The Mindy Project guest star Seth Rogen! See, it’s kind of all in the family!

In an interview with MTV News, Kailing said of Franco’s star turn on the comedy series beginning tonight, “His name is Paul Leotard, which is a ridiculous name and the fact that he was like ‘Yeah that’s a great name for the character,’ he just rolls with everything. In fact, when he introduced himself to me on the show he pronounced it ‘Lay-o-tard,’ which is even funnier to me.  He just wants to be the weirdest, funniest version of himself.”

Kailing also noted that there is a homage to James Franco’s real -life where he want to try everything at least once! “We wanted there to be a little bit of a wink. When he’s putting up his credentials (during the episode), there’s like nine things he does and I think that James is so good at poking fun at himself,” she said. “He’s like a multi-hyphenate-[at]-large. So, yeah, he was excited to, I think, make light of that.”

So will you be watching James on the The  Mindy Project?  Can you believe all that James has attempted since he started with being on a soap, General Hospital as Franco?

This week’s it’s the highly-anticipated double wedding of Maxie (Kirsten Storms) and Peter (Wes Ramsey), and Anna (Finola Hughes) and Finn (Michael Easton) on General Hospital, but already things look pretty dismal that any nuptials will take place, or will they?

We already know that Anna and Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) have figured out Peter is a very bad guy, Maxie is having second doubts of marrying the guy, someone enters the picture unexpected from the latest promo and the end of last Friday’s cliffhanger, Obrecht’s (Kathleen Gati) got some motherly news for Peter,  and Finn is on a mission to find out if he is the bio-son of Chase (Josh Swickard), and not his father Gregory (Gregory Harrison) and more!

On Monday, ABC released its promo for the nuptials, which does have guests seated at the wedding, but who will show up to say their “I do’s”?

 

In the latest issue of SOD on newsstands now, GH co head-writer, Chris Van Etten shared what fans should expect, revealing: “The double wedding is the crescendo and climax of years of stories, secrets and lies – and by the time it’s over, the lives of everybody involved will have been changed forever.”

Watch the teaser below.

Now, let us know: Do you think either couple, Maxie and Peter, or Anna and Finn ,will actually get hitched? How do you think the drama will go down on Port Charles? Weigh-in via the comment section.
