James Franco: Why he's one of the best actors of our generation
With the look of a modern day James Dean it was pretty easy for us to fall in love with James Franco. However, there is much more to him than good looks. His acting skills are extremely versatile and allow him to play anything from a brooding young man who has lost his father in the second "Spiderman" but also a stoner, idiot pot dealer in "Pineapple Express". Franco has quite the extensive career dating as far back as one of his earlier roles in "Freaks and Geeks". What I find so interesting and charismatic about this young man is his pure passion for his craft. He is currently perfecting his art though graduate classes at Columbia University in NY. What was great for Franco was his role as the lovable pot deal dealer Saul in "Pineapple Express" by far one of his best roles yet. He truly shines alongside Seth Rogen and his comedic timing is impeccable! I recently thought of Franco when I watched his recent appearance on SNL and could not believe how unbelievably funny it was! His good looks, charm and immense amount of talent certainly make Franco one of the best actors of our generation!
