Is There Anything Better Than Riff Raff Playing James Franco On “One Life To Live”?

No. There is nothing better than the idea of Riff Raff, the rapper/corn row aficionado who was clearly the inspiration for James Franco’s “Spring Breakers” character Alien, playing the part of Jamie Franko on upcoming episodes of “One Life To Live.” Mr. Raff, rightfully peeved that Franco pretty much stole his whole existence as inspiratio…

12 Celebs Who Are Maybe As Enamored With Ryan Gosling As I Am

But not quite, of course. Sure, I ran 12 city blocks — in heels — to stand next to him in front of Whole Foods. Yeah, I’m working on a rom-com screenplay about my crush on him. And I definitely am alone in having to suffer through a Goservention. But still, it has come to my…

James Franco Maybe Wants To Hump Ryan Gosling More Than I Do

“I loved the whole film and was engaged every moment of the way. But what I want to talk about is the first section, the Gosling section; I want to make love to this section. The first image we see is Gos’s toned six-pack, framed tight so that his head is cut off in order to…

Watching This Clip Of James Franco’s Hero Riff Raff Talk About Art Will Make You 100% Dumber

You all know how I feel about James Franco (not good). And you can’t say I didn’t warn you with the headline of this post — rapper and “Spring Breakers” inspiration Riff Raff is trying to pull some art world shit, and it is not pretty. Clad in a track suit, stone-washed denim and some…

Who Let James Franco & Theon Greyjoy Dip Into The Hair Bleach?

Women change up their hair color all the time (case in point: our BFF Jennifer Lawrence, who just dyed her hair dark for reshoots on the new “Hunger Games” movie). But it’s still a bit strange to see dudes dye their hair all number of colors. James Franco’s new lighter locks (which, please, somebody get him…

The Cast Of That New “Oz” Movie Is Pretty Good-Looking — Plus, Meet Their Characters!

Hey, check out the cast of “Oz the Great and Powerful” at the Russian premiere in Moscow! Mila Kunis looks gorgeous, and let me tell you, I am so relieved. For a second there I was concerned that Ashton had siphoned all the pretty out of her and was using it for his own black…

Face-Off: Shia LaBeouf Is Turning Out To Be A Regular James Franco

My disdain, nay, my utter revulsion for James Franco is well documented on this site. But it seems that there is a dark horse waiting in the wings, ready to pry the douche-prize right out of Franco’s well-oiled hands. Yes, Shia LaBeouf, who today, it was revealed, quit a play in which he was to…

James Franco Addresses Gay Rumors In Details — Plus, How A Vagina Works!

James Franco isn’t gay, he just has a “feeling of enormous permission.” I don’t know what that means. I guess I have to read the whole Details interview. [Just Jared]
If you haven’t been in the mood lately, it might be because it’s the dead of winter. Or maybe you have libido issues.

Here Is James Franco’s Blithering, Awful, Embarrassing Poem About Obama

After a brief respite, James Franco is back to being The Worst, today unleashing his new poem, “Obama in Asheville,” which was supposedly written for the president’s inauguration or something. The poem reads like a boring Wiki of all the things James learned in English 101, and then veers off to talk about getting a…

Frighteningly, James Franco And I Actually Agree About Something

If you’ve been reading The Frisky, you know that I have a strong disdain for actor/writer/director/perpetual college lecture sleeper James Franco. For me, Franco is the epitome of the kind of dumb dude who thinks he’s really clever. But a recent piece in New York magazine does offer a slight detente between us — you…

The First Full-Length Trailer For Spring Breakers Is Seriously Nuts

The long-awaited “Spring Breakers” trailer has hit the web, and nothing I say could even come close to doing it justice. Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, Ashley Benson, and Rachel Korine star in Harmony Korine’s latest vehicle as four bored college students who will do anything to go ham on spring break, and you can count…

James Franco Dons A Justin Bieber Wig, Spoofs “Boyfriend” With Ashley Benson

Another James Franco “art” project! Here he is with a Justin Bieber wig and cap spoofing the song “Boyfriend” with his “Spring Breakers” costar Ashley Benson …  and some other comeley lass.  Rrrow! It gets a little NSFW towards the end. I don’t remember quite so much butt in the real “Boyfriend” video.
What other…

Check Out The New Poster For “Oz: The Great And Powerful”!

There’s no story like “The Wizard of Oz,” but the upcoming film “Oz: The Great and Powerful” adds a new twist on the classic tale, telling the story of the Wizard himself, before Dorothy came skipping up the Yellow Brick Road.

Dr. James Franco Diagnoses Lindsay Lohan

“I haven’t talked to [Lindsay Lohan] in a long time because it seemed like she was getting into some more trouble. I’ve tried to help her. I think one of the reasons it’s so hard is when she gets in trouble, she gets all this attention and I’m sure she gets book offers. Like she…

Emma Roberts Propositions James Franco & Shameful, Homemade Sex Toys

I’ll let Emma Roberts’ Instagram photo speak for itself. What do we think this is all about? Is this part of the James Franco performance art oeuvre? [Evil Beet Gossip]
On the first day of Kinkmas, my true sub gave to me … a house slave in a gimp suit. If that interest…

James Franco Sold A Book Of Poetry, World Weeps

Admit it, you kind of forgot about James Franco. But just when you think he’s finally crawled back into the Studio City hole from which he came, he pops up again. America, you’ve been Franco-ed, because the 33-year-old actor/”performance artist”/director/perpetual graduate student has a new accolade to add to his list: published poet. The book i…

James Franco Is Covered In Paint, Making Weird Art

God bless James Franco for always keeping things interesting. Here he is getting down and dirty with a set of paints with what looks like a giant Gumby doll inside someone’s bedroom. If you don’t understand, it’s just because you don’t get modern art. [ONTD]

James Franco Is Still The Goddamn Worst: “The Master” Edition

“Paul Thomas Anderson was getting ready to make ‘The Master’ and he called me and we met … When he started talking about the role he said ‘Do you feel like you can do this?’ And I said ‘Yeah, totally. Look, I think you’re like the best American director. I feel confident. I know I ca…

Does James Franco Want To Add “Kristen Stewart’s Lover” To His Extensive Resume?

Uh oh. Does James Franco have his sights set on Kristen Stewart? “Sources” say he is “smitten.” They kinda make sense in a weird way… [Newser]
