We've said it before, and we'll say it again: James Franco is open-minded. Why else would the Golden Globe–winning alum of highish-brow fare like Milk, Freaks and Geeks, and the forthcoming Howl -- who moonlights as a grad student with an academic penchant for queer cinema and gay poetry -- sign on to a recurring role on a daytime soap opera?
