CRUSH 'N THE HEADLINES



Apparently I'm not the only one with a crush on James Franco.  Who knew?  

Franco appeared recently on the droll, interminable cable-TV mainstay (think PBS on percocet) "Inside the Actor's Studio".  Selling out of tickets almost immediately, 250 people were turned away at the door. 

To make sure fans got their fill, James spent an unheard of hour-and-a-half answering questions after cameras stopped rolling.  Franco wanted to make sure every person in the audience who had a question received an adequate answer.  If only I were there to ask "boxers or jockstrap?"  Inefficiency has never been so sexy.  Swoon.  My hero!

  1. This guy is seriously some kind of mad powerhouse of talent. Can it be believed? Is there a catch? When does the other shoe drop? Hopefully not before I get my issue of Candy Magazine in the mail.

  2. Hey Colby--If you read this: Sorry I missed your comment about my spring class on Sex in American Cinema at the Corcoran. The easiest way for me to make sure of getting in contact is to email me: bwelt@corcoran.org.

    The class will meet Thursdays from 1:30-5:30 (long sessions for film screenings) at the Corcoran, which I'm assuming you know, since you're all art-y. We only talk about "adult film" near the end of the semester--most of the class is about how the Production Code created movies', and therefore Americans', ideas about sex. So the best time for you to come would be late April-early May. If that's not convenient to you, though, we could work something out. It could be a chance for you to do an Actors' Studio type interview on your career and your ideas about porn.
    There'd be a stipend, of course, nothing like what you get for a shoot--but presumably we won't ask you to have sex--and if you need to travel, we can cover that, too.
    So let me know what you think. I'll try posting this a couple times and see if it gets to you if I don't hear back from you at my email.
    I think this could be a great event.
