Thursday's telenovela marathon - HALL OF FAMER

After recently wrapping up his stint on the popular American soap opera General Hospital, Franco has shifted his attention towards his less publicized stint on Spanish language telenovela El Cuerpo Del Deseo (The Body of Desire.) Filmed in Florida, El Cuerpo Del Deseo is about a man who comes back from the dead and discovers dark secrets about his beautiful widow. Franco appears as the scrupulous Francesco, a mysterious stranger with mystical powers and an ambiguous agenda. All of Franco’s scenes were filmed today in a day-long marathon shoot in order to accommodate his busy schedule.



Today James Franco invented Quitstarter. A website peddled as crowd sourcing meets the every man's dream of quitting on a whim, Quitstarter is really just a way for Franco to compile a list of people that need shaming. Franco has never quit anything, ever...Don't be fooled by pen names....


Tuesday's turn with ballet - HALL OF FAMER

Having decided that a lot of his work lately was too cerebral, James Franco decided he needed to test the abilities of his body by channeling Rudolf Nureyev. Members of the recent American Ballet Theater performance of Romeo and Juliet invited Franco to an 8-hour training session, which culminated in an evening ballet showing of Romeo and Juliet for an audience of three: Franco's girlfriend, his girlfriend's mother and choreographer/friend Debbie Allen.

Franco and Ziggy Stardust - HALL OF FAMER

James Franco spent the day listening to David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust to replenish his creative energies.


American Splendor

American Idol signed James Franco for the upcoming season, not as a judge, but as Mariah's personal handler. Nick Cannon is not impressed. Neither is Ryan Seacrest.  

Friday's fowl challenge - HALL OF FAMER

In a hot-sauce smeared afternoon, Franco chewed through the competition in Lakewood New Jersey’s Wing Fling eating contest — downing a stomach-turning 48 buffalo wings in 5 minutes. After being crowned 2010 King of the Wing by local celeb judges, a bloated Franco admitted he’d spent months training in Japan, perfecting the signature water-dunking technique that secured his victory over last year’s champion Bob Vance of Bob Vance’s Fine Used Autos. He hopes to use his title as King of the Wing as a springboard to a starring role in a biopic about International Federation of Competitive Eaters’ star Takeru Kobayashi.
