Actors James Franco and Seth Rogen are shooting a scene for their movie The Interview, filming in Vancouver, Canada this past Saturday (October 12, 2013), and were swarmed by the paparazzi. The film is a comedy about a talk show host and his producer who get in over their heads when they get involved in a plot to assassinate the prime minister of North Korea.
Franco is one busy man. Franco is about to release his second book, a novel titled Actors Anonymous, which he tells Today’s Savannah Guthrie is not a 12-step program for actors, despite what the title might indicate.
“It’s not as if I think acting is an addiction or anything like that. It’s more just a way … to talk about performance in a different kind of way,” says Franco. “Not that it’s an addiction or something that needs to be fixed, but it’s using more the examination of ourselves, how we interact with others, how we interact with life, through performance and through the lens of a recovery book. But it is a book of fiction, it is not a recovery book.”
Today posted an excerpt from his, ah, unique novel online, which you can check out here.
