Top 10 Babies Who Didn't Know Where They Were in 2011
No. 10: James Franco, General Hospital
Marching to the beat of his own drum has proven successful for 2011 Oscar nominee and host James Franco. Unfortunately for General Hospital fans this year, it also meant a return to Port Charles by his Jason (Steve Burton) obsessed character, Franco. Instead of impressing the masses, Franco devastatingly disappointed. His continued dime-store attempt at transforming Franco into General Hospital’s version of Heath Ledger’s The Joker failed one again to inspire. James Franco may generate mainstream press for the ABC soap, but his acting, the character, and not to mention Franco’s storylines, are so convoluted we’d rather spend time watching the paint on one of Franco’s art pieces dry, than to see him return to Port Charles in the future.
No. 9: Eddie Matos, All My Children
Some actors just aren’t cut out for daytime. Eddie Matos is one such actor. His acting, as General Hospital’s slimy Professor Pete Marquez, was so bad in 2006/2007 we wanted him off our screen ASAP. After his time in Port Charles, we were surprised to discover how much we enjoyed him in the short-lived CBS drama Cane. More recently, his turn as The State Farm Guy also made us smile. Unfortunately, Matos’ return to daytime, as All My Children’s Reverend Ricky Torres, quickly erased any goodwill those projects had generated. Matos appeared out of place in his own skin, chewed up and spit out Pine Valley scenery faster than a riding lawnmower and his attempts at holding his own opposite Alicia Minshew often ended with him looking dazed and confused.
