The 9 Most James Franco Things James Franco Actually Said While Promoting His Web Series

James Franco

It seems even James Franco can't take himself seriously anymore. The infamous multi-hyphenate has teamed up with AOL for a new web series Making a Scene, in which Franco and his friends remix iconic film scenes with other movies and genres.

The launch for the series was held at the satirically trendy Neuehouse in lower Manhattan, a space that describes itself as a "post-modernist 'machine for creating'... intended for solopreneurs" in its manifesto (because of course the place hosting a James Franco event has a manifesto).

During the screening, which featured mash-ups of Batman with Beetlejuice,Dirty Dancing with Reservoir Dogs and more, Franco repeatedly found himself face-palming at his own work. "They ended up being really funny — not intentionally," Franco remarked at one point.

James Franco Calls New York Times Theater Critic a "Little Bi---"

James Franco

Perhaps James Franco should consider deleting his Instagram account.

Franco found himself in hot social media water (again) Thursday after referring to New York Times theater critic Ben Brantley as "a little bi---" via the photo-sharing platform. It seems Franco, who's currently starring in Of Mice and Men on Broadway, didn't take kindly to Brantley's less-than-glowing review of the play.

SNL: Seth Rogen Hosts; James Franco and Other Celebs Drop By

James Franco, Zooey Deschanel, Seth Rogen, Taylor Swift

Seth Rogen returned to Saturday Night Live for his third hosting stint this weekend, and it was distinctly not a charm.

The episode started off promisingly, with Rogen's monologue featuring cameos from celebs — some surprising (Zooey Deschanel), some predictable (James Franco), and some who were there to support musical guest Ed Sheeran (Taylor Swift). But the rest of the night was a bit of a slog, save for a bizarre sketch featuring Franco as a monster who decides to get plastic surgery to appear human.

8 Things to Know About the Veronica Mars Movie

Kristen Bell

From the minute you hear Kristen Bell's hard-boiled voiceover, it's clear that some things never change — though Veronica might allege she has. Veronica Mars' titular hero claims to have moved on from her time as a teen detective ("Trust me, I know how dumb that sounds.") in favor of a prestigious career as a New York lawyer. Though Veronica might claim to be a marshmallow now, when she learns Logan Echolls (Jason Dohring) is a murder suspect (again!) she doesn't hesitate before resorting back to the righteously indignant and dogged detective we fell for all those years ago.

So who's Logan suspected of murdering this time? None other than Carrie Bishop (Andrea Estella), or as the world now knows her, Bonnie DeVille, troubled pop star and Logan's ex-girlfriend. (How many dead ex-girlfriends can one guy have?)

Can't wait to find out more? Here are eight things to know about the Veronica Mars movie before its premiere:
