I Heart the '00s

This week will be the very last of the ’00s, possibly one of the awesomest decades in TV so far.  Sure, that’s easy to say for someone like me who hasn’t been around too many decades, but I think once you check out the list of shows that came out in the past ten years, I think you’ll agree.  And without further ado, we ask…

Happy voting!

Lolz!  Remember how we were talking about James Franco and his upcoming role on General Hospital?  Well, ABC has released this sultry promo shot:

General Hospital: James Franco

VA-VA-VOOM!  Is that James Franco, or did Benicio Del Toro have a baby with John Mayer?  These things are possible in my world, btw.

No word yet on what Franco’s role will be on the beloved soap, but we DO know that his stint starts November 20th.  Get yer DVRs ready!

Side note: I’ve been revisiting a buttload of Freaks and Geeks lately and I just keep reaffirming my commitment as more of a Jason Segel gal.  Any objections?

James Franco: The Lost Tapes

More adventures in the life of James Franco, scholar!

As you’d probably heard, Franco was all set to be the UCLA commencement speaker last month, when he backed out at the last minute due to another engagement.

Today, a Funny or Die video hit the web illustrating the REAL reason Franco didn’t make it to graduation. Watch:

Somewhat funny, though I have a feeling UCLA students won’t be amused.

Why? Because a) they never wanted him to speak in the first place, b) they wound up having to hear some dude from Linkin Park speak instead, and b) eff you, James Franco!

Hey, at least the dude’s cute. Loved Freaks and Geeks, too.  Sheesh.  Don’t take yourself so seriously, UCLA.

You Snooze You Lose, James Franco!

Yo!  ‘Member how I said James Franco is like sooOOoo serious about his writing career?  Boy, is there egg on my face:

James Franco at Columbia University

Nope, that’s not a still from Freaks and Geeks.  That’s Franco pulling an Ethan Hawke and being a total slacker in one of his writing classes at Columbia, photo posted this morning on The Blemish.

UPDATE:  They ARE giving out book deals to anyone with boyish good looks.

James Franco Gets a Book Deal

James FrancoThe big news today is that actor James Franco just scored a totally sweet book deal with publishers Simon & Schuster.  He’ll be penning a collection of short stories, for the Scribners imprint.

Franco is most likely best known for his roles in Milk and the Spiderman series (though he’ll always be Daniel Desario from Freaks and Geeks to me!).

What gives, people?!  Apparently, all you need to get a book deal these days is boyish good looks and a sheepish grin.  Slap a pair of chiseled cheekbones on me and call me a writer, I’m done.

KIDDING!  Hot people can write, too (I’m right here, folks!).  Franco is actually quite serious about his writing career: he’s enrolled in a creative writing Master’s program at NYU, in addition to taking writing classes at Columbia.  Oh, and his mom is a bestselling children’s author, if that helps.

I just hope Franco does better than Ethan Hawke, whose self-impressed debut novel The Hottest State I read a few years back.  To summarize, The Hottest State left me with a loaded gun pointed at my temple, trigger cocked.  JK!  But seriously, I rolled my eyes so many times, I thought they’d pop out and slide around on the ground like a pair of peeled grapes.  Back to the ’90s where you belong, Hawke!

And good luck to you, James Franco.
