James_Franco_General_HospitalWouldn't you love to know who's giving actor James Franco career advice these days? I'm not knocking him or her, but I'd love to figure out the strategy. Or maybe this is just Franco being Franco (like Manny being Manny, for you baseball fans out there)?

James has just started filming his two-month arc on General Hospital -- check out the first pic (right) -- and now Michael Ausiello reports that James Franco will do a guest spot on 30 Rock.

How's that for a career trajectory -- from box office bonanza (Spider-Man) to Oscar feature (Milk) to daytime soap (General Hospital) to Emmy-winning sitcom (30 Rock). He's like a human pinball machine looking for a perfect score!

Dinner: Impossible chef welcomed back

Robert IThanks Chef Michael Symon, but your services are no longer needed on Dinner: Impossible. Yes, he's been given the pink slip because it seems the folks at Food Network realize that they may have acted a bit rashly when they changed chefs last April. The Food Network has rehired Robert Irvine and will reinstate him as the host of Dinner: Impossible.

Apparently, fudging his resume wasn't quite the high crime and misdemeanor it was made out to be. In fact, the network's dramatic reversal is proof positive that Dinner: Impossible has not been the same show with Chef Robert.

It's easier to forgive Irvine for padding his credits -- including facts like cooking for the Queen and preparing meals at the White House -- than it was to find as charismatic a star to anchor the weekly show.

Reunion: '95, '96, '97 & '98

reunion; foxRemember way back in December of 2005 when Fox aired the episode of Reunion for 1994? OK, good. Now, remember how they showed the previews for the next episode of Reunion? Yea? Excellent. Well, I'm not sure if you're aware of this or not, but Fox sucks, and they never showed that one. In fact, they promptly canceled the show after that, leaving many loyal fans wondering just what our misfit crew of estranged friends' fates were. There were four episodes that had filmed, but Fox decided not to show them. Will there be an eventual DVD release of the episodes? I wish I knew, but I don't think it would really wrap up any loose ends, though. Luckily, Kristin over at E! has a rundown of the lost episodes. Head on over for a complete rundown of what was going to happen, and then come back here and vent your frustration with me. I believe Kristin has said in the past that she was going to give an overview of everyone's final fates as well, so we'll have to keep our eyes peeled for those.
