NBC

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s ‘The Interview’ Already Has the Best Poster of the Year

The Interview Poster Preview
Sony

One of the reasons why Mondo Posters have become a such a big thing in the geek community is that few modern posters pop these days. Bad photoshop, floating heads, few done with any sense of artistry. Which is why it's going to be awfully hard for a studio to produce a better poster than the one just released for writer/directors Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's 'The Interview.'

David Letterman Finally Gets to the Bottom of James Franco’s Instagram Nonsense

CBS
CBS

James Franco is, to put it diplomatically, a bit of an odd duck. Sure, he's a very talented guy -- and one who has never balked at using his talents across a wide range of professions -- but he's also kind of a weirdo in plenty of situations, especially as they apply to social media. And David Letterman is not having it.

‘Conan’: Even Dave Franco Has Zero Idea What James Franco Is Doing

TBS

Young Dave Franco has always done an admirable job of drawing a line between himself and his arguably more famous big brother, James. While Dave dedicated his career to delivering steadily improving supporting performances in a bunch of comedic outings -- think '21 Jump Street' or 'Neighbors' -- James has spent the last few years doing, well, just a lot of things, including some questionable social media behavior.

How James Franco and ‘Palo Alto’ Director Gia Coppola Brought Teen Angst to the Screen

James Franco Gia Coppola Interview Palo Alto
Tribeca Film

While the films of Sofia Coppola often examine the world of young wealth -- see 'The Bling Ring' and 'Marie Antoinette' -- her niece, Gia, approaches coming of age from a different angle: the grittier, if you will, emotional lives teens lead while growing up in rural Palo Alto.

"I had just finished college and was kind of reminiscing on those years of high school," she told ScreenCrush in an interview. "I had enough distance where I could kind of look at it nostalgically," and it was the realistic experiences in James Franco's collection of short stories, titled 'Palo Alto,' she wanted to bring to the screen for her first directorial effort.

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ Will Feature a Cameo From a Dead James Franco

20th Century Fox
20th Century Fox

When 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' concluded, Caesar had led his army of super-smart apes into the relative safety of the California forest as a deadly virus was starting to make its way across the entire planet. The upcoming 'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' pics up some time later, with most humanity decimated while ape civilization thrives. Among the casualties of the epidemic is James Franco's Will Rodman, the human lead from the previous film.

But this is James Franco we're talking about -- he's going to appear in any and every film he possibly can, even if his character is six feet under.

‘SNL’ Scorecard: Too Bad We Didn’t Have Any Of Seth Rogen’s Drugs

scorecard

Except for a couple of notable exceptions, everyone seemed to be going through the motions last night. Look, this happens. Especially at the end of a three-show run -- near the end of a long season –- looking ahead to the final stretch of shows of this season, which begin on May 3. The end is in sight! But, boy, there were some dull moments during Seth Rogen’s hosted effort that played out, at times, in front of an almost-silent studio audience. (Shhh! Don’t wake them!) Here’s this week’s pretty mellow Scorecard…

‘SNL’ Tells the Story of Two Monster Pals

snl monster pals

Last night's 'SNL' had a digital short that had it all. Two characters speaking in a fictional language while wearing Halloween masks. Guest host Seth Rogen being racist against monsters. A surprise celebrity cameo. Children being scared. A minor rant about the inaccuracies of 'Monsters, Inc.' We're not sure what everyone was eating before they wrote this Monster Pals sketch, but they should order from there more often.

Jimmy Fallon Spills ‘SNL’ Secrets to James Franco on ‘The Tonight Show’

NBC
NBC

Do you ever wonder what happens on late night shows during the commercial breaks? Does the host and his or her current guest sit there in silence? Do they craft a way to steer their interview once the cameras are back on them? Do they simply drink coffee from their ever-ready mugs? Turns out, if it's 'The Tonight Show' and host Jimmy Fallon is in the middle of interviewing James Franco, the two of them just end up talking about Horatio Sanz.
