Does anybody else wonder how nice it would be to live a day in the life of James Franco? Not only is he a great actor, writer, producer, and film teacher, but a painter as well. Just this week he was honored a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame. Come on now, I barely have enough time to make a blog, so someone please tell me how the hell James Franco has so much free time on his hands? When not starring in the latest movies, such as the newly released Oz the Great and Powerful, or the latest Funny or Die videos, James Franco can be found teaching film classes at prestigious colleges such as New York University and Columbia. In addition to teaching, Franco has returned to school several times and claimed three M.F.A’s, Master of Fine Arts, degrees from Columbia, Brooklyn College, and NYU. Like, come on Franco, at least leave your competition their dignity! I wonder what it’s like to be his parents? I mean their son is everywhere, or should I say (sons)? Dave Franco, who starred in the 2012 re-make of the movie 21 Jump Street and the hit television show Scrubs, is just as talented and attractive as his brother. There must be something in that Palo Alto water (where the Franco’s were born and raised). I feel like James’s parents gave birth to him, and after his success, was like “Oh, what the hell? Let’s give this another shot.” Mama Franco is basically birthing millions, go Mama Franco!
But don’t get me wrong, I wasn’t always a J-Franco fan. In fact, I thought he was one of those actors who gained their roles simply by being extremely good looking, and nothing else. However, after being swayed by his performances in movies like James Dean, Milk, and 127 hours, I have become a fan of the actor. I mean, how can you not like James Franco? And if your not a fan of his more serious roles, how about his comedic roles in the stoner cult classic, Freaks and Geeks, or Pineapple Express? Regardless of your feelings towards Franco, he’ll continue to be side smiling his way into the box office as his new movie, Oz the Great and Powerful, brings in a whopping $80 Mil Plus!
How do you guys feel about James Franco? Love him, Hate him, or On the fence?
Have you seen OZ yet? If so, What did you think? Yay or Nay?
