Franco’s next role: sales as­sis­tant

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

Ob­vi­ously we ad­mire any ac­tor who broad­ens his or her mind by em­bark­ing on in­tel­lec­tu­ally stim­u­lat­ing side projects. We don’t frown at James Franco for writ­ing a stupid beat­nik novel, in­volv­ing him­self in con­cep­tual art projects or do­ing what­ever it is he’s do­ing this week. We re­ally don’t.

So we make no judg­ments about Franco’s de­ci­sion to work at a pop-up store in Lon­don’s May­fair that will sell var­i­ous poncy Christ­mas gifts to sup­port an art gallery named (what else?) Stu­dio Voltaire. We sug­gest you go there and de­mand to be sold a bushel of Tickle Me El­mos.

Is that too snide, James? Go and write a bal­let about it. Why don’t you?
