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 on them looking nothing like they did at the premiere (above). A RiFF RaFF-channeling James Franco sports cornrows as rapper/drug dealer Alien, and I have no idea who Gucci Mane plays but he is most definitely in this movie. I think it looks rad — much better than expected, actually — and I can’t wait to see squeaky-clean Selena get her sleaze on. Ch-ch-check it out. Y’all wanna die tonight? [MTV] Keep reading »
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 songs do you want to see James Franco spoof/cover? I bet he could do a righteous “You Oughta Know.” You … you … you … oughta know!
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. James Franco plays the future Wizard, while Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz play the three witches, Glinda, Theodora and Evanora. The latter — Evanora, the Wicked Witch of the East — is pictured in the just released poster for the film, in theaters on March 8. I’ll be there, tornado or not.
“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 goes to jail, and instead of feeling like I really hit a low place, she’ll get a crazy offer for her jail memoir.”
Normally I’m, like, “Shut up, James Franco” about … everything. But here, I actually think he has a good
diagnosis point. It’s probably hard for LiLo to hit rock bottom when some entertainment industry vulture is lurking around every corner with a Lifetime original movie or lucrative strip club gig. I’m dying to know how Franco tried to help her and whether it involved interpretive dance or performance art. [The Superficial] [Photo: Fame/Flynet]
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 is titled Directing Herbert White, after a movie that Franco — natch — directed. It’ll be out in 2014, and odds are 100 percent of James Franco’s poems are about James Franco.
