James Franco needs little introduction.
Movie star, fiction writer, director, documentarian, college instructor and smoldering sex symbol of the highest order, Franco is the Hollywood jack-of-all-trades who seems to have the uncanny ability to be everywhere doing everything all at the same time.
But just in case fans needed a reminder of Franco’s prolificacy, the 34-year-old actor-writer-director extraordinaire is showing off his multitude of skills and accolades in a promotional video for Samsung’s Galaxy Note 10.1 tablet.
MOCA announced Wednesday an exhibit conceived by celebrity art rogue James Franco that will focus on the 1955 James Dean movie “Rebel Without a Cause.”
“Rebel,” though presented by MOCA, will be on view at JF Chen, the Hollywood space of furniture dealer Joel Chen. The show, running May 15 to June 23, also includes work by Douglas Gordon, Harmony Korine, Damon McCarthy, Paul McCarthy, Terry Richardson, Ed Ruscha, and Aaron Young that will explore the themes of the movie, a classic of teenage angst directed by Nicholas Ray.
James Franco will be in a mutli-episode arc on Nick at Nite’s upcoming primetime soap Hollywood Heights, the network announced today. What magic is this! The show, formerly known as Reach for the Stars, is based on a Mexican series about a shy girl who becomes a pop star after winning a songwriting competition. Along the way, she befriends a mega-rock-star — who is of course her celebrity crush. Heights premieres in June and will air five nights a week, telenovela style, but it’s not clear yet when Franco’s arc starts or what his role entails. If there’s a God in TV heaven, though, it’s someone incredibly sage and hilarious.
A source on the set of the movie — which stars Seyfried as pioneering porn star Linda Lovelace and Franco as Playboy owner Hugh Hefner — tells us the actors were totally into each other during a 12-hour shoot in Los Angeles on Thursday. “I thought it was for the movie,” says the source, “but every time there was a break, they kept talking to each other and flirting back and forth.”
The eyewitness adds that, at one point, the two actors continued their conversation oblivious to the hair and makeup people who were primping them for the next scene.
According to the source, Franco was available for only one day of shooting and the producers shot all of his scenes from Thursday at 1 p.m. to Friday morning at 1 a.m.
Although the scenes arent particularly provocative, they do depict Hefner flirting with Lovelace. The source explains that they center around Hef’s screening of Lovelace’s infamous porn movie, “Deep Throat,” at the Playboy Mansion. Hefner, who’s flanked by two Playmates, greets Lovelace on the red carpet by kissing her hand and asks her pornographer husband, Chuck Traynor, if he can trade the two blonds on his arms for his wife. He then escorts Lovelace into the theater.

I am so sorry I have not been around lately. My life and work are so hectic right now I can’t do much of anything. I will try and add some new pictures I’ve found later on. Nice to see you all again!
In my desperate search to figure out something to write about I was going to write an article asking “Where did Julie Stiles go?” Then I found out she is acting on Broadway and that pretty much killed that article. However, I guess I could have also asked “Where did Orlando Bloom go?” Bloom didn’t have a single movie in 2008 and only Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End in 2007. In fact 2006 didn’t do much better following the eight films he starred in from 2003-2005.
Well, he has a role in the chaptered New York, I Love You later this year and has now replaced James Franco in Sympathy for Delicious opposite Mark Ruffalo and Laura Linney according to The Hollywood Reporter, a film that will also serve as Ruffalo’s directorial debut.

Why wasn’t James at the Golden Globes? Mystery solved!
Wondering why James Franco skipped the Golden Globes this weekend? According to a well-placed tipster, the actor is currently enrolled in an MFA program in North Carolina. Franco allegedly skipped out early from the program to attend the Golden Globes, but, in a very Pineapple Express-ian turn of events, missed his flight and just ended up going back to the program instead. Mystery solved!
For those of you who doubted our earlier reports that James Franco was busy studying for his MFA in North Carolina instead of attending the Golden Globes, well, we think you owe us an apology. We just got off the phone with Ben Anderson, spokesperson for the Warren Wilson College in Swannanoa, North Carolina, who confirmed to Vulture that Mr. Franco did indeed spend a stretch at the college’s winter residency studying poetry as part of the school’s MFA Program for Writers. We can only hope, for his sake, that he spent some time poring through the canon of e.e. cummings while there.
Warning: This Alternate ending is very disturbing.
