James Franco quit something?
The man who does everything, from teaching to hosting major awards shows, has backed out of his Broadway debut the BBC reports.
According to the publication, Franco was set to star opposite Nicole Kidman in the Tennessee Williams play "Sweet Bird of Youth." BBC said Franco's rep confirmed he would no longer appear in the play, however, there was no reason given as to why.
Fans can still catch the actor in his return to the daytime drama "General Hospital."
His character, a psychotic artist named (surprise!) Franco, is sure to bring some trouble to the fictitious city of Port Charles - if the on-set photo above is any indication. He first appeared on the soap in 2009 and reprised his role in February. Franco will make his latest appearance on September 20.
Even bloody, we still love you Franco!
