James Franco is a noted multitasker, but this fall the Oscar-nominated actor will appear both on General Hospital, which films in Los Angeles, and on Broadway in the revival of Sweet Bird of Youth,reportsTV Guide.

Franco will return to the ABC daytime drama for what's being referred to as a "long-term" story arc, in which he'll again play Robert "Franco" Frank, a performance artist and serial killer who has a crush on a hit man played by Steve Burton. The long-running soap tapes in Los Angeles, but according to TV Guide, during his past three appearances on General Hospital the actor has shot several weeks' worth of the series in just a couple of days. The magazine also adds that the character's upcoming story line involves his "most twisted plan yet."

Franco is also scheduled to make his legit stage debut this fall opposite Nicole Kidman in a production of the Tennessee Williams classic, playing gigolo Chance Wayne, a character originated by Paul Newman in 1959. The opening date for the revival hasn't yet been announced, but rehearsals are expected to begin early this fall.

In addition to his well-documented educational pursuits, Franco also has multiple film projects in the works that include directing and costarring in the upcoming biopic of late gay actor Sal Mineo and starring in the Sam Raimi-helmed fantasy Oz: The Great and Powerful. Franco's album Turn It Up, recorded with performance artist Kalup Linzy, was released earlier this month.
