As if work life wasn’t already busy enough for daytime veteran Roger Howarth (Franco, “General Hospital,” Todd Manning, “One Life to Live”), the fan favorite actor is heading to primetime! According to a Showtime representative, the New York native has signed on for a two episode arc on the networks comedic series, “Californication.”

But will he be portraying anything similar to the dastardly dream man he currently plays in Port Charles? Probably not, as he’ll be joining the series as Chris, the yoga teacher of Karen (Natascha McElhone), whom fans know as the on-again/off-again girlfriend of Hank (David Duchovny) and mother of Becca (Madeleine Martin).

Production on the seventh season of “Californication” is already underway with a Showtime premiere date set for sometime in 2014.
