Cinematic Crush: James Franco

Crush object: James Franco, actor.

- He first caught our attention as one of the Freaks and Geeks in that short-lived but still fondly remembered television series.

- Critical acclaim and a Golden Globe came with his strong performance as legendary rebel James Dean in the 2001 TV movie of the same name, for which he was also nominated for Emmy and Screen Actors Guild Awards.

- Originally considered for Peter Parker, he ended up cast as his best friend/future nemesis Harry Osborn in Spider-Man and its two sequels.

- Other notable films include Sonny, City by the Sea, The Company, Tristan & Isolde, Annapolis, Flyboys and In the Valley of Elah.

- In the tradition of Brad Pitt in True Romance, this pretty boy goes to pot in this weekend's Pineapple Express. Next up, two high profile gay biographic roles: this December's Milk (as Harvey Milk's lover Scott Smith) and next year's Howl (as beat poet Allen Ginsberg).


  1. Franco is just ridiculously hot AND talented.
