James Franco to show Erased James Franco at CMA

Posted By on Mon, Jun 15, 2009 at 9:51 AM

c4cc/1245074081-james_franco.jpg Since starring in the short-lived Judd Apatow TV series Freaks and Geeks, James Franco has taken on a variety of roles that show just how much range he truly has. He starred as Harry Osborn, son of the Green Goblin, in Spiderman and played James Dean on a made-for-television movie that aired on TNT. He was a crazy stoner in Pineapple Express and played Harvey Milk’s lover in Milk. As if to illustrate his many talents, Franco stars in an art film/collage called Erased James Franco that finds the actor reenacting roles from his various movies and doing interpretations of other roles from other films, namely Julianne Moore’s character in Safe and Rock Hudson’s character in Seconds. The 65-minute feature has its local premiere at the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Recital Hall (11150 East Blvd., 216.421.7340, clevelandart.org) at 2:30 p.m. Sunday, June 21. Franco and the director, a contemporary artist who simply calls himself Carter, will speak after the screening. The event is sold out, but it will be simulcast in the Lecture Hall; tickets are $25.
