James Franco To Front New Art Programme About The Work Of... James Franco

James Franco is a talented guy, there's little evidence to say otherwise frankly, and when you have so much talent bottled up inside you there has to be a place to unload it all right? Enter the television network Ovation, who have given Franco a platform to display his prowess in front of an easel with the upcoming show James Franco Presents, a show about James Franco, his love of art and his works of art. Surely that's enough Franco for anyone, right?
