Franco Revealed (Or Reiterated)


If you weren't paying attention when James Franco's artistic collaborator Carter explained to Movieline that the actor's General Hospital stint was performance art, then you might be surprised by Franco's op-ed in the Wall Street Journal today, where he states the very same thing. "I disrupted the audience's suspension of disbelief," writes Franco, "because no matter how far I got into the character, I was going to be perceived as something that doesn't belong to the incredibly stylized world of soap operas." Perhaps, but for maximum cognitive dissonance, shouldn't this editorial have appeared in Cat Fancy? [WSJ, Movieline]

    Sometimes I wonder if Franco was truly awesome in Pineapple Express, or if he was just himself and they just happened to film around him, like it was a documentary or The Truman Show.
