He returned to the long-running soap earlier this year (10) to revive his character for more episodes.

And now he's signed on to appear in two more segments of the soap opera, which will air on 25 and 28 February (11).

General Hospital's executive producer Jill Farren Phelps tells TV Guide the two episode stint will serve as a teaser for a longer story arc featuring Franco, which they plan to air later in 2011.
