Dear Gossips,

Here’s a tweet that had people talking this week – attached. More Oscar campaigning for James Franco’s performance in Spring Breakers. As I’ve previously noted, he was excellent in the film. Franco is a magnificent actor. And if Michael Fassbender doesn’t want to be Best Supporting Actor for 12 Years A Slave, fine. Franco can take on Jared Leto (Dallas Buyers Club).

Here’s a game that appeared on Flavorwire that also had people talking this week – Who Wrote It: James Franco or Jenna Jameson? Apparently it’s hard to tell the difference between Franco’s new book Actors Anonymous and Jenna Jameson’s new book Sugar.  Read Full Intro

Dear Gossips,

It’s TIFF time! The festival starts today. Traffic stops moving in Toronto today. I officially stop sleeping for the next two weeks today. Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts are coming. TOGETHER. So…who has time for sleep?

As it was during previous festivals, the blog will be business as usual, perhaps even heavier. In addition to posting full festival coverage here at LaineyGossip.com, I’ll also be reporting from the red carpets and the junkets for etalk and shooting The Social, our live daily afternoon talk show, every day. And I’ll have a daily column in The Globe & Mail as their festival party correspondent. So… if there’s a typo or two during the next few days, please accept my apologies in advance.  Read Full Intro

Nothing like starting off the day with a mega eye roll. No one delivers mega eye roll like James Franco. Franco movies, Franco books, Franco poetry, Franco sculpture, Franco painting… Now Franco TV. It was announced yesterday that the Ovation network in the US will launch James Franco Presents in November, a 10 part “anthology series” that will, according Robert Weiss, the network’s chief creative officer, show “the word of art through James’ eyes. Full Story

The Artist James Franco went to play paintball with some friends yesterday in New York. Is the Artist making a movie about paintball? Writing a poem about paintball? Paintballing an installation? Or does the Artist actually have some free time on his hand for leisure? Nah. It’s probably a paintball sculpture, whatever that might look like. Full Story

Have you seen Spring Breakers yet? I put it on my iPad for my flight from Vancouver to Toronto the other day. Not really the best idea. Watching it on one of the plane’s personal seat viewers is one thing. But viewing it from your iPad, with much better resolution, so that the people around you can see your screen if they’re looking, is totally different. Full Story

Usually he’s piling onto his schedule, signing up for new projects, new degrees, new artistic collaborations, but James Franco has, just two weeks before production was slated to begin, dropped out of his latest directorial effort, Garden of Last Days, in which he was also going to star. But he had a tantrum over creative differences and left the production in the lurch, and it will likely shut down as a result. Full Story

It started with Veronica Mars, then came Zach Braff, and now the Artiste, James Franco, is on a crowdfunding platform attempting to raise money for a new feature film project. Franco is seeking $500,000 in order to make three films based on his own short stories, to be directed by filmmakers from NYU, where Franco is a grad student/professor. Full Story

That’s what it’s called, right? These movies about “boys will be boys” hijinks, stuff like The Hangover, Wedding Crashers/The Internship, Old School, Pineapple Express—basically all the movies the Stiller/Apatow crews have been making for the last 10+ years. (Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy’s The Heat would be the female counterpart. Full Story

The Artist’s “public persona”

James Franco covers the new comedy issue of GQ because he stars in the upcoming This Is The End. Why are only Apatow people considered for comedy prime coverage? So now he’s a comedian too, in addition to being an actor, director, painter, poet, and academic... Have I missed anything? Maybe illusionist? Master manipulator? No, no, no. Full Story

No Khaleesi! James Franco and Jorah Mormont: which is sh-t and which is diarrhoea? Page Six reports that James Franco and our Khaleesi were at an art fair in New York together on Saturday looking rather “friendly”, suggesting that “friendly” is a euphemism for “flirty”. Full Story

This is Kate Hudson last night at the NY premiere of The Reluctant Fundamentalist. I’m really into this white sweater dress. It’s not for everyone, and I couldn’t wear it, definitely not, but on her, it’s a good look. There’s just...something bothering me about her hair lately. Full Story
