James Franco Takes A Cat Nap

James Franco has been studying hard for his Oscar-hosting gig on Sunday and the actor/student/writer/etc. deserves a break. Those kittens, on the other hand, are just being lazy. [Twitter] Keep reading »

James Franco And Anne Hathway Feeling Grease Lightening For The Oscars?


T-minus three days until the Oscars, and people are starting to wonder—what do hosts James Franco and Anne Hathaway have up their sleeves? Yesterday, James posted this 19-second clip on Twitter, which shows him and Anne recreating “You’re The One That I Want” from “Grease.” In it, James has his hair slicked back a la John Travolta and Anne looks just as dope as Olivia Newton-John in the iconic shiny leggings. And they appear to be on a carnival set. So will they be performing this number at the Oscars? Guess we’ll have to wait and see. [People]

After the jump, another new promo for the big show. Keep reading »

James Franco And Anne Hathaway Take Their Oscar Training To The Next Level

The Oscars are going down on Sunday night—yes, like this week—and James Franco and Anne Hathaway are totally ready. In the awesome promo above, James runs an Oscar-carrying obstacle course, knocking over mannequins in evening gowns to cross the finish line in time. And in the one after the jump, Anne completes her teleprompter speed reading trial with surprising accuracy. I dunno about you, but I think these two could be pretty great as co-hosts. I am rooting for them. [Stars Entertainment] Keep reading »

Oscar Theory #9: Play A Real Person, Win A Statue

T-minus 18 days until the Oscars and, of course, we are all starting to place bets on who we think will walk away with little golden men this year. Luckily, the Academy has proven itself to be pretty darn predictable over the years. If you’re America’s Sweetheart, you’ll probably win Best Actress. If you sings in a flick, you are almost guaranteed Oscar gold. But there’s another trend we’ve been noticing lately: the winners for Best Actress and Best Actor tend to be the person who’s taken on the based-on-a-true-story role. In fact, 10 of the 20 top honors given in the 2000s went to actors who portrayed real people. Let’s take a look, shall we? Keep reading »

James Franco To Play The Wizard. You Know, The Wizard Of Oz.

I have a theory that James Franco must have found a genie in a bottle at some point during his life, and wished to have 48 hours in a single day while the rest of us only get 24. Not only is the dude gearing up to host the Oscars, working on a zillion graduate degrees, directing movie versions of William Faulkner’s As I Lay Dying and Cormac McCarthy’s Blood Meridian, starring in a Linda Lovelace biopic and heading to Broadway—but as of this morning, he has also been tapped to play the Wizard in “Oz, The Great and Powerful.” The film is a “Wizard of Oz” prequel that tells the story of how the dude ended up in a hot air balloon to Oz, later standing behind a curtain in the Emerald City. Apparently, he was a con man who had the hots for Glinda, the good witch. Keep reading »

Could James Franco Be The First Oscar Host To Also Win?

James Franco is getting way into the singing and dancing required for his Oscar co-hosting duties on February 27th. “This weekend we did shoot some of the pre-tape sections. Anne Hathaway and I did some dancing, some choreographed dancing, and I recorded some vocal tracks,” he said. “I had a great coach. He pulled it out of me. It really makes me want to do a musical on Broadway.” James is also excited that he’ll be able to bring his Grandma, of Funny or Die fame, to the soiree. “That’s one of the nice things about being the host is you get to invite a bunch of people,” he said. “So [my family is] all coming. Grandma is coming and she might just be on camera.” [OK Magazine]

Which brings us to an important question: while James is hosting, he’s also nominated for Best Actor in “127 Hours.” Has an Oscar host ever won a little golden guy? Keep reading »

James Franco Gets Trapped Under A Mini-Fridge!


Calamity struck at “The Daily Show” yesterday, when actor James Franco went looking for a Snickers bar … and a mini-fridge fell on his arm, trapping him in the green room. Watch as James, much like his “127 Hours” character, attempts to cut his own arm off with a spork — until Jon Stewart steps in, of course. [Pop Eater] Keep reading »

James Franco And Kate Hudson To Do A Linda Lovelace Biopic? That Sounds Familiar.

“Armageddon” and “Deep Impact.” “Capote” and “Infamous.” It’s a time honored Hollywood tradition for two movies to come out months apart about same exact topic. And it looks like it’s about to happen again. Late yesterday, Deadline.com reported that James Franco and Kate Hudson are in talks for a biopic about Linda Lovelace and her husband, Chuck Traynor, who Lovelace later said coerced her into porn. The movie will be based on the book The Complete Linda Lovelace and will be made by the dudes behind “Howl.” [Huffington Post]

It sounds pretty awesome. Except that, as you’ll remember, there’s already a Linda Lovelace biopic in the works called “Inferno.” Keep reading »
