James Franco’s ‘Saturday Night’ Documentary: A Must Watch for Any ‘SNL’ Fan

Saturday Night Big

There’s something to be said for a documentary that can be interesting to a potential audience member who had no prior interest whatsoever in the topic of the documentary. In this respect, James Franco’s ‘Saturday Night’ – which chronicles the making of one episode of ‘Saturday Night Live’ from start to finish (which is now available on Hulu Plus) – sort of fails. But, to be fair, I’m not sure that was ever the point. If someone has no interest in ‘Saturday Night Live’ whatsoever, ‘Saturday Night’ isn’t going to be particularly appealing; it’s the definition of “wonky.” On the other hand, for people who do like ‘Saturday Night Live’ (this reporter falls into that category), boy, ‘Saturday Night’ is an absolute delight. It ranks alongside Tom Shales' and James Miller’s ‘Live From New York’ as a must see/read for ‘SNL ‘ fans.

Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are back! The new red-band 'The Interview' trailer shows the duo, who brought us such classic debauchery as 'Superbad,' 'This Is the End' and 'Pineapple Express,' are already starting up some drama with their Kim Jong-un assassination story. If that premise alone isn't enough to make you gasp, how about some NSFW talk of "Matthew McConaughey goat f***," and getting "f***** by RoboCop"?

James Franco Adapting ‘Rant’ From ‘Fight Club’ Author Chuck Palahniuk

Hard to believe that author Chuck Palahniuk has had only two of his many novels adapted into films -- after the brilliant 'Fight Club,' there was only 'Avengers' star Clark Gregg's indie adaptation of 'Choke,' which not a whole lot of people saw. (It starred Sam Rockwell. It was fine.) But after several years and some failed attempts by others, actor/writer/director/professional college student/"artist" James Franco has officially optioned the rights to bring another Palahniuk novel to the big screen.

‘The Interview’ is Being Edited So It Won’t Start World War III

Sony

Sony is digitally removing thousands of military decorations on the uniforms of the North Korean military characters. Apparently, showing these specific symbols, which honor Kim Jong Un and his late father Kim Jong Il, on film would be considered hugely offensive to North Korean government.

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
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.
