Seth Rogen and James Franco have taken their bromance to hilarious new level.
Whatever your feelings are toward Kanye West's music video for "Bound 2," we can bet you'll fall head over heels for the parody version that Rogen made with Franco.
We'll warn you: it does contain crude language, and you probably shouldn't be drinking or eating anything while watching this. You might do a spit-take from laughing so hard. (We say this from experience.)

Where to even begin with Monday night's James Franco roast?
The actor/producer/soon-to-be reality star/everyman was the recipient of some zingers from his celebrity friends, who also took a few jabs at each other, at the Comedy Central roast. There were racial jokes, gay jokes, drug jokes, gay jokes, fat jokes...and did we mention the gay jokes?

It never stops with this guy.
James Franco is always doing something. No, seriously, as you read this he is undoubtedly doing something amazing. From art to soap star, we are beyond questioning if there is anything the actor can't do.
Variety is reporting Franco has now gotten his own television show. "James Franco Presents" is scheduled to premiere on cable network Ovation in November and will feature Franco exploring his passions and art.
Not only will he star in the unscripted series, but Franco will also executive produce the show about his various pursuits (remember when he taught a college course about himself?) Ovation's chief commercial officer, Robert Weiss, told "Variety" the series will not be a reality show, but rather an “anthology docuseries.”
“The show sees the word of art through James’ eyes,” he said. “All the different exploits that James is involved in, this show encompasses.”
Franco hasn't been on prime time regularly since the critically acclaimed "Freeks and Geeks." We can't wait to see what he does next. Because there definitely will be something next.

After getting a taste of director Sam Raimi’s “Oz: The Great and Powerful,” a new, longer trailer for the James Franco vehicle has hit the Web.
Like the teaser trailer that debuted in July - and, of course, 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz” - the trailer starts out in black-and-white Kansas before arriving in the colorful land of Oz.

[The following post is an excerpt from a longer interview conducted on The Dinner Party, a national public radio show about culture.]
Thirteen years ago, James Franco was one of the stars on the cult TV show "Freaks and Geeks." He went on to co-star in the "Spider-Man" movie franchise, earned raves in Gus Van Sant’s "Milk," and got an Oscar nomination for his starring role in the film "127 Hours."
