I’m not really sure exactly how I feel about James Franco. I know I don’t think he’s great, but he hasn’t done anything that’s ever really bothered me. More he just seems like that guy from high school who wore a smoking jacket to class, and tried too hard to get people to read Thomas Hardy. We get it, James, Jude the Obscure is badass. Enough already.

But I do know that if Franco screws this up, he will be dead to me.

Have you guys read Rant? It’s the oral biography of Buster “Rant” Casey, and honestly, I don’t want to say anything else about it because it’s amazing and hearing anything more might make your brain leak out of your ears. Go read it. Go read it now. Especially go read it before Franco casts himself or his little brother as Rant, and possibly ruins the character for you for life. I really want this to work, but I have been burned before. In the meantime, I’ll be rewatching Fight Club and girding my loins.
