Actor/artist/misc/etc James Franco has mysteriously and without commentary posted these images of his paint-splattered face, his foot and a “grizzly” (get it? get it?) teddy bear murder scene. Only, it’s not a teddy bear but some sort of stuffed psychedelic-toned bag, shaped like a giant teddy bear, sprawled across his bed. Only, it’s not a […]

Because of course he does! Why wouldn’t Renaissance man Franco have a Motown-influenced band with a spoken-word-heavy lead single and a press photo featuring the actor-cum-writer-cum-artist-cum musician looking stoned in pink lipstick and a Rolling Rock trucker hat? Daddy’s debut EP, MotorCity, will be released Tuesday, and sports a polaroid of Franco’s Spring Breakers co-stars […]

“It’s mostly faded, but it’s still there,” says James Franco. We just watched tattoo legend Mark Mahoney carve “BRAD” into his forearm with a switchblade, in a video art. He’s about to show me, but Laurel Nakadate interrupts with a “teenage girl cutter scar” joke. […]

This Saturday, the Hollywood actor who makes you angry because he’s totally committed to this artist thing and the sexy, sexy artist Laurel Nakadate will take part in some happening at the New Museum from 5:30 to 6:30pm.

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. […]

Mainstream actor James Franco told Conan that his amateur sex tape is “boring,” so he’s directing a documentary film about an “amazing facility in San Francisco” — a giant, old armory turned full production house. Franco doesn’t name drop Kink.com (link is very NSFW, BDSM, “device bondage,” “bound gang bang” and “wired pussy”), but certainly, […]

A new media producer just cashed out $10K for an artwork that exists entirely in actor/prolific-art-dabbler James Franco’s head from the Museum of Non-Visible Art. They sell placards for imaginary works of art. Yet, the gut-wrenching level of irony of their presentation makes me want to slap Franco. […]

So, here’s that “preview” video of Harmony Korine‘s Venice Biennial project with James Franco riding in the parking lot of conflicting hip hop allusions and mugging for the camera in sepia-tinted “tough” mode. I believe we were promised live gunfire? […]
