Franco was on GH as a postmodernist statement relevant to his several doctorates in art. Other than that, the only bona fide excuse film stars have to return to daytime is if the show is imminently going off the air forever.

James Franco does not have a single doctorate in art.
He is pursuing a doctorate in English, and an MFA (not a doctorate) in creative writing.

It wasn't going to happen for him. He's not charismatic enough for lead roles and his good looks work against him in character parts. If this pilot takes off and does well, it's the best he can ask for.

Bitch, [bold]PLEASE[/bold]! A paparazzo asked her to smile for a quick shot at the neighborhood newsstand. That is IT. Her publicist did not call ahead on her behalf to stage the thing (as if a simple shot of her buying magazines would be worth anything cash-wise to the paparazzi - this isn't Jay-Z and Beyonce's first baby shot we're talking here). As for opening movies, she's opened multiple romantic comedies just fine. Get back to me if "This Means War" somehow flops, and accept the fact that the only thing "creepy" here is your bizarre loathing for a woman you don't even know who hasn't done anything wrong aside from being a successful actress. Or do you hate her because you're still obsessed with the idea that Jake Gyllenhaal is gay?

So much competition out there. Look at Josh Lucas,who showed such promise in The Deep End and A Beautiful Mind. But those films were over a decade ago and steady tv work came calling. But The Firm is tanking and it looks like he'll be back auditioning again.I hope he finds something that sticks...
BTW,WHET to the kid from 'Deep End',Jonathan Tucker?
Anyway,Ryan is quickly approaching middle age and I think this is a good move for him. he can do a series for five years,hit syndication paydirt and then can do character parts in movies when the lines on his face can give him gravitas-like Clooney.

No, you merely *wanted* him to ping. He wouldn't have "pinged" for you if he'd been fat and homely. Don't worry, though: many, many, many DLers continually make this mistake, confusing their own lust for an attractive male actor with the self-delusion that "he pings" (a key reason why literally every attractive actor & celebrity in Hollywood has, at some point in this site's history, been declared gay here because "they pinged").

He may have the classic quintessential twink look (which has been exploited a lot with characters that had gay angles), which might lead one to think he's gay but sadly doesn't ping. Not fair. :(
On the other hand, per R39 Josh Lucas is one who pings off the charts and beyond. I don't think he should be cast as straight characters cause he is distracting - once again when I saw the execrable J. Edgar he stood out and took me even more out of the film, granted his character had a seedy undertone but still. His looks have also hit the wall as well, ageing rapidly to meth face levels.

EXCLUSIVE: Less than two weeks after Ryan Phillippe committed to his first regular series gig, a starring role in CBS’ untitled Nick Wootton-Greg Berlanti drama pilot (formerly Golden Boy), he has departed the project. I hear the parting of the ways was amicable and happened after Phillippe expressed doubts that he was ready to commit to the rigors of a network drama series. His decision was in part influenced by his first primetime series experience — he is currently filming a major arc on the final season of FX’s Damages, which has given him hands-on TV series production experience.
