James Franco: Chuck Norris for the Indie Bitch

James Franco. Somewhere in the space of the last two years, James Franco has gone from mid-level hottie and decent actor to the second coming of Indie-Christ. (The first coming, in case you weren't aware, was a shared title, given to J.D. Salinger and Ben Gibbard. This eventually ended in a fight to the death in early 2010.) James Franco is not only the worlds most marvellous actor (he can play gay, you know), author, artist, director and Yale-ey, he is also a really nice guy. After some brief, ahem, research on James Franco, I discovered, ahem-hem, many wonderful things about this talented young Hollywood miscreant.

James Franco knows what Bill Murray said to Scarlett Johannson at the end of Lost in Translation.

When James Franco finished Ulysses, he read it again. Just for the hell of it.

James Franco gets the bus, for enviromental reasons.

James Franco was only in Eat Pray Love ironically.

When James Franco finished Ulysses again, he left it on a city bus, leaving clues in the margins to his identity.

James Franco is Banksy, for environmental reasons.

James Franco changed his name from James Frank in 1992 in a bid to distinguish himself from esteemed writer and personal rival, Anne Frank.

The rose petal scene in American Beauty was based on James Franco's sightings of his own penis.

This summer, James Franco will be writing, directing and starring in a movie adaptation of the Hopper painting, Nighthawks.

James Franco gets Faulkner.

James Franco only buys from local businesses.

James Franco has two best friends; one is his mother, and the other is Rosa Parks.

James Franco is uncomfortable with his heart-throb status.

James Franco ordered three dozen Kindle's from Amazon and burned every last one of them.

James Franco once thought he had a zit. But then he realised that God would never be so cruel. Long story short he donated nothing to charity. (donated by Emmet O'Brien)
