Everyone was so worried about James Franco appearing on “General Hospital.” Remember, he told this column the same thing on Oct. 3.

Now he writes an op-ed piece today in The Wall Street Journal confirming it.

It’s an interesting piece. More importantly, there are no other young actors of his generation who’ve shown an intellectual curiosity about anything, frankly. It’s refreshing, and kind of retro. It’s also funny how the snarky blogs like to mock him. Jealousy is so ugly.

Roger Friedman began his Showbiz411 column in April 2009 after 10 years with Fox News, where he created the Fox411 column. He wrote the Intelligencer column for NY Magazine in the mid 90s, reporting on the OJ Simpson trial, as well as for the real Parade magazine (when it was owned by Conde Nast), and has written for the New York Observer, Details, Vogue, Spin, the New York Times, NY Post, Washington Post, and NY Daily News among many publications. He is the writer and co-producer of "Only the Strong Survive," a selection of the Cannes, Sundance, and Telluride Film festivals, directed by DA Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus.
