Watch a 60-Second Montage of James Franco Whispering Overdramatically

Whether he is playing a cultural icon, a pajama bottomed-stoner or a soap opera performance artist "whose canvas is murder," James Franco oftentimes relies on a gravely stage whisper to deliver his lines. From anyone else's mouth, it would sound creepy, but coming from Franco, it is acceptable and even worthy of Academy Award recognition.* In celebration of his patented delivery, New York Magazine has assembled sixty seconds worth of the actor's most inspired dramatic whisper work over the past decade. Click through for take-off.

*Except in General Hospital. There, Franco's dramatic whisper is just creepy.
