Now that Laurel Nakadate and James Franco have teamed up for a Performa fest project, they’re going to have sex, indubitably. Unless they already have. Even this tiny preview pic is so loaded with sexual tension, looking into their simmering eyes make you feel like a third.
Some further support for this scientific guess: He’s an actor turned suddenly a successful artist and documentary pornographer and she’s a performance artist some think is an actress and everything she does is exhibitionist. So, they’re talented attention whores who people either love or hate and they’re attractiveness compatible-ish. They’re going to be doing a séance in NYC’s Elysée Hotel in the room in which Tennessee Williams died and then staging pretend The Glass Menagerie auditions, sucking off each others’ acting and art work cred, respectively. That’s pretty intimate. Together, they could make the most love-it-or-hate-it child ever. Or work. “Three Performances in Search of Tennessee,” Performa Arts 2011, Laurel Nakadate and James Franco, Nov 12 and Nov 13, Abrons Art Center, NYC. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
