General Hospital Scoop on the Sonny-Brenda Wedding and the Return of James Franco

7 February 2011 10:53 AM, PST | TVGuide - Breaking News | See recent TVGuide - Breaking News news »

Will it finally happen this time? General Hospital heroine Brenda Barrett (Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo) — whose past wedding days have all been disasters — is scheduled to marry crime lord Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) on February 18. Right now things don't look so good for the duo. Sonny is being haunted by prophetic dreams that something will go heinously wrong at the ceremony.

'General Hospital': Daniel Benzali joins James Franco in the soap's sandbox

Daniel Benzali is sampling the playground that James Franco also continues to visit.

Probable "127 Hours" Oscar nominee Franco is slated to return to ABC's weekday staple "General Hospital" just before he co-hosts (with Anne Hathaway) the 83rd Annual Academy Awards next month ... but famously bald "Murder One" veteran Benzali is on the serial now.

"It's just a matter of doing different things and keeping going," Benzali tells Zap2it about entering daytime drama after appearing on "Nip/Tuck" and "Lie to Me," among other primetime shows. "Whatever strikes my fancy, a script or an idea that comes in, I'm really open to trying it."

That's close to the British approach to acting, which makes sense since Benzali also has worked in England for many years.
