Renaissance-man James Franco (it should be noted, “renaissance-man” is what you call a pretentious douchebag when he’s still in the room) has written another book, this time about being an actor. Chapters include “How to look and act like a cardboard cut-out at the Oscars”, “Name-dropping your way through University” and “How to work Judd Apatow’s balls.” The Observer reports:
James Franco is publishing a novel! And not only that, he has abandoned traditional publishing houses to publish with Amazon. The book is called Actors Anonymous and was acquired by Amazon’s fiction editor Ed Park from Mr. Franco’s agent, Richard Abate. The novel is said to be a fictionalized version of Mr. Franco’s experiences as an actor (and grad student?). Mr. Franco’s first book, a collection of short stories called Palo Alto, was published by Scribner.
Wait wait wait, will there be a chapter about how James Franco stuck a penis on his face and taped himself walking around campus and then called it art? Because that’s how art works nowadays: do something wacky, then hope elitist snobs read way too much into it.
