Cowboys & Aliens director Jon Favreau‘s promotional push for the sci-fi Western continues with a directing gig on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! Favreau, who spent the weekend at Comic-Con, will helm the Wednesday episode as part of a Cowboys & Aliens-themed week of JKL featuring interviews with stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, Olivia Wilde and Adam Beach. Other feature directors who have directed episodes of JKL include Quentin Tarantino, J.J. Abrams and Michel Gondry. Speaking of moonlighting, James Franco will be returning for yet another tour of duty on ABC’s only surviving soap, General Hospital, this time reportedly long-term.
