You might think that James Franco is done with 'General Hospital' especially since he snagged an Oscar nomination for '127 Hours,' as well as being chosen to co-host the Academy Awards on Sunday, Feb. 27, on ABC.

However, as previously reported, Franco will be back on 'GH' on Friday, Feb. 25 and Monday, Feb. 28.

But here's some 'new' news: Franco wants to continue with the ABC soap on a recurring basis.

In a TV Guide article, GH headwriter revealed that when he contacted Franco to congratulate him for the Oscar nomination, James returned the message and said he's anxious to get back to Port Charles.

Franco reportedly has big plans for the Franco character, and has expressed interest in directing episodes of GH. Guza told TV Guide, "I think he's going to be on our show off and on forever, and God bless him for that."
