Written by Sarah First, let’s get something straight. I don’t dislike Natalie Portman. I like her quite a lot, actually. She’s sharp, talented, and I generally like her movies. I don’t see all of them because she has a habit of making some pretty depressing stuff, but I enjoy her on screen. Full Story

Arguments for:- He delivers an outstanding performance in 127 Hours and many say he will be nominated for an Oscar- He has been everywhere – on daytime television, on the festival circuit, on talk shows, on SNL, in comedies, able to straddle art house pictures, comedies, and major motion picture releases- He is supposedly a versatile artist, studying writing, directing, sculpture, and enrolled in every creative post graduate program available in New York- He’s beautiful- He is scandal-free Arguments against:- While Franco has certainly made inroads, he is still not mainstream enough- Some people think he’s gay- His artiness borders on annoying. Full Story

Two buddy cops, right? It’s a good combination. But first, James Franco is hitting the circuit hard right now promoting 127 Hours, opening this weekend. Highly highly recommend. He is so great, delivers such an amazing performance in this movie, only you have to steel yourself. You have to prepare yourself for a lot of discomfort, not only at the gruesome parts, but also by how you might feel while relating to that kind of isolation, desperation, loneliness, and, ultimately, with every minute that passes, the seeming futility of the situation. Full Story

The Daily Show is taping from Washington all week leading up to the Rally to Restore Sanity on Saturday. Want to go. Won’t be going. If you’re going I’m jealous. Anyway, timely enough, Jon Stewart has also just been named the Most Influential Man of the Year, according to AskMen.com Full Story

James Franco has been almost universally applauded for both his performances as Allen Ginsberg in Howl and in 127 Hours playing Aron Ralston, who was trapped by a boulder in Utah and had to cut his own arm off. At this point in the season, Franco is considered a lock on a nomination for Best Actor. And he’s choosing now, while he has momentum I guess, to promote his collection of short stories Palo Alto. Full Story

On Saturday it was the Your Highness panel at the NY Comic-Con. He and Danny McBride play Fabious and Thadeus and probably smoke a lot of dope and do some dumb sh-t. At least this is what I’m assuming and I won’t bother getting corrected. Do you watch Eastbound & Down? If you do, there’s probably no question you’re seeing Your Highness. Full Story

Seeing this kinda makes me roll my eyes a little less enthusiastically at his pretention. Check out James Franco on the cover of Candy Magazine, a publication that celebrates “transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.” He is f-cking hideous. And also a little bit hot. Full Story

Passing out over Franco

There’s a scene in 127 Hours that is so harrowing, someone actually bailed last night at the TIFF gala nd the paramedics were called. If you know the story of the dude who was trapped and had to extricate himself in extreme fashion, you probably have an idea of what that might be like. Having said that, Franco is getting sick reviews for his performance in the film. Full Story

James Franco: writer, poet, not gay

Great article in The Advocate, cover subject James Franco. They straight up ask him if he’s gay. He says he’s not. The journalist keeps pressing and concludes that Franco, indeed, is not gay. It’s not People Magazine, it’s The Advocate. But somehow, like Jake Gyllenhaal, people keep thinking he’s gay because he’s played gay. Full Story

Holy. Sh-t. More TIFF announcements, more major additions, so many world premieres at this year’s film festival including the Midnight Madness line-up and more potential award winners to the schedule covering the entire spectrum from elder Hollywood statesman to dirty tramps and roughnecks. Clint Eastwood will be in Toronto with Hereafter starring Matt Damon. Full Story
