Once more refracting reality through a funhouse mirror, James Franco has been spotted on the set of ABC’s General Hospital—a game of subverted expectations in which we, the press, were made the unwitting subjects of a philosophical experiment on the nature of truth when Franco claimed there was “a little bit of misinformation” regarding his return to the daytime soap. As confirmed by these photos of a beaten and bloodied Franco "in character" as “Franco,” the deranged conceptual artist serial killer, the only real “misinformation” was that which Franco was giving out himself in a sort of “This statement is false” logic loop. Unfortunately, our minds were simply too linear to realize it at the time. In the future, we must always remember to factor for Franco.
