The first season of Franco’s latest TV project “The Deuce” just ended last week.
The Oscar-nominated actor will be next seen in the upcoming comedy drama film “Zeroville,” which he also directed.
We are here to talk about his latest film, Oz the Great and Powerful – in which he plays Oscar Diggs, a pre-Dorothy Wizard of Oz. Perhaps best known for playing Peter Parker’s friend in Spider-Man, Franco first rose to fame with the cult television series Freaks and Geeks.
Earlier in the day, at a press conference, Franco had looked by turns bored (head slumped against microphone, yawning frequently) and amused – teasing his young co-star, 13-year-old Joey King. In the past few years, he has had several leading roles, most notably in the survival drama 127 Hours, for which he received an Oscar nomination.
“Ohhh,” he says throwing his head back, “incredibly.
A million times more.” As a director himself now, he avoids casting opinionated young men.
“He dreams about becoming great, becoming recognised, and when I was younger those were things I dreamed about too.” Growing up in Palo Alto, California, Franco started acting in high school and after a year in college dropped out to take acting lessons instead.
She had a huge grin on her face and seemed absolutely smitten with him.”On Friday, Franco and his 24-year-old girlfriend were also spotted having lunch with friends at Jon and Vinny’s in Los Angeles.
“They were sitting pretty close to each other and they seemed really happy,” an insider told the news outlet.
Franco previously dated actresses Marla Sokoloff and Ahna O’Reilly.
According to Zimbio, Franco was in a relationship with Sokoloff from 1999 to 2004.
