(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — James Franco, who is currently starring on ABC's "General Hospital," is scheduled to appear on ABC's "Good Morning America" Saturday Edition on Saturday, July 17, in which he talks with co-anchor Bianna Golodryga during a sit down interview that took place last month during the soaps filming at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, CA.

In the interview, the actor discusses what drew him to the structure of soap operas and the creation of his character Franco on "GH."

"There are performances with different levels of intension, different levels of being genuine, that can get audiences thinking in a different way than just about a fictional story," said Franco. "And I thought…if I went on a soap opera, maybe that would add something, maybe that would shake something up."
