James Franco Mutilates Himself In The Name Of Art

More high art on the way from Mr. James Franco. For his latest project, he is participating in a group art show called “Rebel,” a nod to “Rebel Without a Cause.” Part of the Venice Biennale and promoted by MOCA, the show is being described as a “fracturing [of] the themes and events housed within the original film and reframing them in an unresolved conceptual amalgam.” Whatever that means. Gotta love high art speak. Can anyone translate? Anyhow, James’ solo contribution is an homage to the late actor, Brad Renfro, who died of a heroin overdose in 2008, his co-star in the movie “Deuces Wild.” It is a documentation (both on photo and film) of James having Brad’s name carved into his right arm with a switchblade. I can’t tell if this sounds like artistic genius or bloated indulgence. I guess I’d have to see it. Either way, it’s pretty hardcore for James to walk around with a dead friend’s name carved into his arm. [LA Times]

6 Things To Know About Dave Franco, James’ Little Brother

At the Franco dinner table, Dave may sound like the underachiever when compared to older brother James, who recently hosted the Oscars, is slated to star in and direct several high-profile projects, and is working on, like, a zillion different graduate degrees at once. But can we talk for a second about how freaking cute Dave is? And his acting career is starting to take off—he has just been cast in “21 Jump Street,” the movie reboot of Johnny Depp‘s star-making show. He’ll be acting alongside Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, playing a super cool high schooler who just happens to be a big time drug dealer.

James Franco likes to talk about gayness. So, is he or is he not? Read More »

Oscar-nominated actor, performance artist, writer, aspiring film director, Yale Ph.D student, and now … college professor. James Franco does it all! New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts (my alma mater and the school where Franco is working on his MFA in film production) has hired him to teach a graduate level course on adapting poetry into short films. I’m unsure what qualifies him to teach this course. Oh, wait. Now that I think about it, he did play Allen Ginsburg in “Howl” so he must be an expert on poetry! Keep reading »

Yep, This Sums Up Last Night’s Oscars Pretty Perfectly

As this was the “young and hip!” Academy Awards, host James Franco took advantage of that new fangled thingy called the internet and posted photos online as the event was happening. My personal fave of his photos was this one, featuring an insanely baked looking Franco, a deer-in-headlights Oprah, and a so-perky-we-could-slap-her Anne Hathaway. [Who Say] Keep reading »
