8 James Franco Career Ideas

franco

Actor, dreamboat, Oscar host, author, self-effacer, professor and now video artist. Is there anything James Franco can't do? Probably not, but here's a suggestion to what he at least should consider before becoming David Blaine's apprentice.

  • Charlie Sheen's replacement on Two and a Half Men
  • The past, I don't know…25 years have proven that Martin's son (not Emilio) has difficulty consuming things that don't contain alcohol, cocaine or venereal diseases. Of course, this has only postponed the production of his ever-popular CBS show. The Applebee's/John Mayer crowd are going to lose it! But Mr. Franco can certainly step in and bring his usual charm. The stoner uncle! Can't you just see it?

  • Republican Presidential Candidate
  • Bobby Jindal? Mitt Romney? Do I have to even mention the snowmobile lady? Yeesh! The party is going to have to hope for a country singer to run or something. If Franco threw has hat in the ring though they could have a shot. Of course, he'd have to be busy not doing poetry n' shit and focusing on the stimulus, but look at his sideways smile!

    Beats Obama any day of the week.

  • Street-Artist
  • He could assume an alternate identity known as Frankie James. His work would probably be more on the Mr. Brainwash side of things; all his “art” could be pictures of him with dicks drawn on various parts of his face. It's all of a piece!

  • Justin Bieber's Public Enemy
  • If the Bieb wants more street-cred, he's going to need to start a feud with someone in the music industry. Being that he would shit his pants at actually having beef with Ghostface Killah or T.I., it's best to do it with a movie star. Obviously the two of them need more media attention too.

  • Speech Therapist
  • With The King's Speech's inevitable Best Picture victory on Sunday, it's safe to say that overcoming a stutter is so hot right now. Every time you shout “I have a voice!” Franco could reaffirm you with his stoner-giggle rendition of “Yes you do.”

  • Poli-Sci T.A.
  • Because the one in my class has waaaaaaaaay too thick of a French accent.

  • Pitchfork Music Critic
  • Because if the dreamy James Franco said that Mumford and Sons suck, my friends would finally agree.

  • Movie Blogger
  • And finally, the best one. Who better to offer his opinions on a Comic-Con video blog about how a B-List actor claims that the sequel to a reboot of a movie based on a board game is “really about the characters”? Sure, he's not 300 pounds, bearded, spectacled, smelly, socially-challenged or a fan of middle-of-the-road romantic comedies released Fox Searchlight, but we can make him. One of us! One of us!

    Ten 2010 Movies that you *should* be looking forward to…because I really am

    Before I get into this I should note that Shutter Island was on here for awhile but the whole delayed-to-February thing in combination with seeing the trailer so many times has given me a kind of blue balls effect. Still, I eagerly await anything from Eyebrows. Anyway, here…we…go.

    Why Avatar is indeed awesome

    JC

    The people who complain about Avatar’s story being “Dances With Wolves meets Ferngully” are like people who claim they don’t like John Goodman because he’s overweight. Goodman’s weight serves his persona as the lovable and funny guy who could very well be your zany Uncle. Ignoring his dominating screen presence and talent just because he doesn’t look like a typical handsome leading man is flat-out dumb. Avatar’s simplistic story serves it’s themes and visual splendor. We don’t need a twist ending where everyone is a robot for a movie to be good, it’s fine to sometimes just have something standardly play out in front of you just so that you can further appreciate what extraordinarily is being done. I don’t need John Goodman to lose 200 pounds and have a shirtless scene to appreciate what he’s doing while watching an episode of Roseanne.

    File Sharing and Its Possible Use With Independant Film

    Now that we’re a couple days out from the Ink/Piracy story, I’ve had some time to think about the implications and possible applications file sharing could have on an independant and its efforts to gain exposure.  The point of this piece is to start a discussion about Bit Torrent’s use in marketing.

    First of all, here’s a brief recap of what’s been going on with Ink, confirmed with director Jamin Winans.  These are hard facts.  The Winans’ sales of their film have been rising noticably.  Amazon.com is sold out and is currently quoting a 1-2 week wait before shipping the DVD.  Sales at the official Ink site have gone up.  Both Blockbuster and Netflix have doubled their orders to keep up with demand for rentals.  What is unclear with these instances is how much impact the file sharing phenomena has contributed to this.  Jamin thinks that all this would have eventually happened, but the piracy probably stepped up how quickly everything came about.

    Why Antichrist is the new Freddy Got Fingered (Spoilers)

    lars.JPG

    freddy

    The world premiere of Lars von Trier’s Antichrist this year at the Cannes film festival is now the stuff of legends. Critics who had attended this first ever screening were disgusted, shocked, terrified, angry, excited, bewildered but most importantly…buzzing. This very buzz on the internet the day of release was splitting people into two sides. Those who boasted about how they supported more edgy cinema welcomely hollered “BRING IT ON!”. Those whose favorite movies consist of the filmographies of Tim Burton and Ron Howard sat back and shook their heads in disgust. Those in the middle? The ones who can enjoy both Werner Herzog and Preston Sturges? They were just confused about what side to support. But now as the film has screened more and now finally awaits its theatrical exhibition, it comes the time to seriously examine it. What made Lars von Trier make this particular film? His excuse was that this film was the answer to his years of depression. But are talking foxes, smashed genitals, cut-off clitorises and satires of Baz Luhrman really an answer to depression? Well, it’s probably just as much of a response as jerking off a horse, wearing the skin of a dead deer, licking a compound fracture and wearing a cheese helmet.

    Trailer for Harmony Korine’s Trash Humpers hits the net

    Okay, I’m going to be honest before I post this. I have never seen a single Harmony Korine movie. But you know what? From what I’ve seen of him, he seems like a cool guy. His newest film Trash Humpers premieres at TIFF this weekend and NO, I will not be seeing it. I don’t want my mother (who is responsible for getting the tickets) to think that I’m a wacko. Oh wait, too late…But anyway, enjoy the trailer below of what looks like Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job : The Movie.

      As an additional treat I decided to embed both of Korine’s appearances on Letterman. This is what made me like the guy.

    How John Travolta gave the most fascinating performance of the year

    pel

    Warning : This will contain serious spoilers for The Taking of Pelham 123.

    Going into the newest film from gloss auteur Tony Scott, The Taking of Pelham 123, I expected a few things. Those being dizzying editing and cinematography, a nerdy Denzel and some stuff involving car chases. But what I didn’t expect was one of the film’s stars to basically use the movie to come out of the closet.
