The facts: On a sunny day in 1992 in Palo Alto, California, Ted Franco, the 14-year-old boy who would later change his name to James and go on to star on daytime soap opera General Hospital as a serial killer named “Franco,” egged a home. The vandalized home belonged (and still belongs) to the parents of BUREAU founder Michael Phillips Moskowitz. The letter that young Ted wrote after he was caught has recently resurfaced. It is truly a heartfelt, genuine expression of how sorry young James Franco was that he got caught. That is all. “I hope we can just forget all this and put it behind us,” he writes. Well, James, the egg doesn’t come out easily. And now, in the smallest possible way, it’s on your face too.
