James Franco (born 19.04.1978) James Franco is an American actor who rose to fame with his role on the cult TV show 'Freaks and Geeks' 1999 but is best known for starring in 2001 biopic 'James Dean' and playing Harry Osborn in the 'Spider-Man' film trilogy that began in 2002.
Childhood: James Franco was born in Palo Alto, California. His parents are Betsy Lou, a poet and author, and Doug who was the owner of a shipping container security firm before he passed away in 2011. James was talented at mathematics and became an intern at the technology company Lockheed Martin. He attended Palo Alto High School and was arrested several times as a youngster for petty crimes. He attended the University of California in LA majoring in English but soon dropped out, preferring to chase his acting career. He took acting lessons whilst working an evening shift at McDonalds to fund it. In 2006, he enrolled at the university again and graduated in 2008.
Acting Career: James Franco made his first big break in 1999 with the comedy 'Freaks and Geeks'. In that year, he made an appearance in his first movie, 'Never Been Kissed'. In 2000, he took on a bigger role in 'Whatever it Takes'. James received true recognition when he was selected for the eponymous role in 'James Dean' in 2001. To get into character, he started smoking, riding a motorcycle and learned guitar. His efforts were duly awarded with a Golden Globe. In 2002, James became internationally famous when he played the role of Harry Osborn in Sam Raimi's 'Spider Man' trilogy. In the same year, he was in the poorly reviewed crime drama 'Sonny' and played a drug addled tramp in 'City by the Sea'. James has been in several independent movies throughout his career including the 2003 ballet flick 'The Company' and fantasy drama 'Camille' in 2007. In 2008, he portrayed Harvey Milk, the first gay politician elected into public office, in the biopic 'Milk' and also became a stoner in the comedy 'Pineapple Express'. James received an Academy Award nomination for his leading role in '127 Hours' in 2010 and later landed a role in 'Planet of the Apes' remake 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' in 2011. He is set to star as the titular character in 'The Wizard of Oz' sequel 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' in 2013 and currently has a recurring role in ABC show 'General Hospital'. James Franco: Other Career Ventures James plans to direct movie versions of Stephen Elliott's 'The Adderall Diaries' and Philip Carlo's 'The Night Stalker' among others. He is currently adapting the film 'Child of God' from the book by Cormac McCarthy. He has directed projects before and even created several multimedia expeditions. He has written a gritty book about his teenage antics called 'Palo Alto: Stories' which was published in 2010.
Personal Life: James Franco has been in relationships with Marla Sokoloff and Ahna O'Reilly; the latter relationship ended in 2011 due to a clash of interests. There has been a lot of media speculation surrounding his sexuality because he has portrayed a number of gay characters in movies but he appears to deny these suggestions.

Stephen Elliot is a writer who's lost his way. He's previously had books fictional works published but his current case of writers block is causing disruption to his output. Another increasing problem with his creativity is a growing dependency of Adderall, an ADHD medication.
As Elliott learns of a fascinating murder case, he becomes more and more drawn to the story and the convicted murderer behind the crime. Whilst investigating the case, Elliott also finds himself going through a number of personal changes. His father, who pretty much abandoned his son as a young teenager, once again appears in his life and he's also introduced to a journalist called Lana Edmond which leads to a positive relationship for a man who mainly associates females with negative experiences.
Whilst trying to piece his new novel together, Elliott finds himself on a journey of self-discovery and must take his past to pieces to reveal exactly what's true and what's been fabricated in his mind.

Frank is a hot dog Wiener who's packed into a vacuum seal bag with all his closest buds, Brenda is a hot dog bun who is also bagged up with the other ladies in the Glamour Buns pack. Since being stored on the supermarket shelf, Frank and Brenda have known that they're meant to be, now all that has to happen is their new owner picks both packets to take them home for their happily ever after.
As luck would have it, a lady picks them both up and it seems like their dream is coming true, little do the food items actually know what happens to them when they get to their new home; they're pealed, boiled, grated and roasted to death before being eaten. Now Frank is on a mission to bring the truth to the other consumables in a bit to make the horror stop.

The incredible story, which went viral via the hashtag #thestory last October, is being developed into a movie.
James Franco is helping to develop and direct a movie based on the colourful tale of Aziah “Zola” Wells’ road trip to Florida last year that went viral on social media.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Franco has teamed up with Andrew Neel and Killer Films to produce the potentially highly controversial movie. The script for the project based on David Kushner’s story for Rolling Stone last November, entitled ‘Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted.’
That article was billed as a behind-the-scenes, exclusive account of what really went on behind Wells’ 148-tweet series about her October 2015 trip to Florida with her friend Jessica, Jessica’s boyfriend Jarrett, and Jessica’s violent pimp called ‘Z’.
This blending of the stoner bromance with the Christmas comedy works surprisingly well, layering gross-out humour with holiday sentimentality. So it's a bit of a shame that the script is thin and ultimately rather pointless. There are observations about the nature of friendship and maturity, but nothing very deep. But along the way, the cast and crew pack in a riotous sense of humour that mainly centres on drugs and genitalia, plus a whiff of Christmas magic.
The movie centres on three best buddies in New York: Ethan, Isaac and Chris (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Seth Rogen and Anthony Mackie). Over the past several years, they've celebrated Christmas together with a series of traditions including karaoke, Chinese food and loudly festive sweaters. But now Isaac's wife Betsy (Jillian Bell) is about to give birth to their first child, and Chris' pro-football career is beginning to take off. So this will be their last Christmas Eve together, and they plan to make it an epic one. Ethan has secured tickets to New York's most exclusive secret holiday party, which he learns that his not-quite-ex girlfriend Diana (Lizzy Caplan) is attending. Meanwhile, Betsy has given Isaac a box of drugs for a last blow-out, and Chris scores a stash of weed from a mythical dealer (Michael Shannon).
The premise is certainly packed with possibility, and the filmmakers have a ball with the druggy excesses as the night unfolds, including wildly anarchic set-pieces that throw these likeable characters into all kinds of messy situations. The three lead actors make the most of their roles, adding layers of complexity that aren't in the script while indulging in rampant silliness at every turn. And the supporting cast are up for it as well, fully committing to the movie's crazed atmosphere. There are also hilarious extended cameos from James Franco and Miley Cyrus.

Some people have unusual ideas about body art.
You nearly had us there, James Franco! This actor has sent rumours flying around after unveiling a tattoo of Emma Watson's FACE on his NECK. Needless to say, it wasn't actually real; merely a startlingly elaborate Photoshop job from artist Cheyenne Randall. Though it did get us thinking about all the real tats celebs have gotten over the years.

In what could be one of the most chilling and uncomfortable true story thrillers in recent years, James Franco and Jonah Hill star in just that: 'True Story'. And the experience has helped them relate to journalist Michael Finkel on which the film is based.
James Franco and Jonah Hill star in 'True Story'
When Finkel was fired from the New York Times for fabricating a news story, he found himself without any job prospects. However, as luck would have it (good or bad, depending on how you look at it), he soon became embroiled in a high profile murder case when Christian Longo used Finkel's name on being arrested for killing his family. This was finally a job that Finkel could take on, but little did he know how complex and unnerving his relationship with Longo would become.
A Little Girl's Mother has high expectations of her daughter, given her own career success, and thus takes it upon herself to plan out her entire life, complete with a rigorous study and exercise schedule. The Little Girl agrees to knuckle down at first, but soon finds herself distracted by her peculiar elderly neighbour, The Aviator, who wishes to tell her the story of his encounter with The Little Prince - an other worldly being who lived on an astronaut before landing in the middle of a desert on Earth. The Little Girl is fascinated by the tale, and starts to understand what the most important things are in life, such as friendship. She starts to lament the idea of growing up and the idea of forgetting the significant things she understands as a child; that only the heart can give her a true vision in life.
