In his quest to annoy every living being, James Franco is set to portray Robert Mapplethorpe in an upcoming movie project.
He will also play Hugh Hefner and the Wizard of Oz in two movies currently in post-production. But you can’t fully appreciate his work until you’ve see him play Allen Ginsberg in “Howl.” Hearing him intone Ginsberg’s poetry in his thin nasal voice, you can almost detect the rustling sound of the poet spinning in his grave.
I hope to see James Franco play Hitler, Mao Zedong, Golda Meir, Emily Dickingson, Napoleon, Isadora Duncan, Jack Kerouac, Miles Davis, Florence Nightingale, Salvador Dali, Maya Angelou, Albert Einstein, and of course, The Holy Trinity.
I can even see him playing Patti Smith opposite his Robert Mapplethorpe!
Who would you like to see James Franco take on next?
