Did you ever wonder why Dave didn’t make an apperance in “This Is The End” film starring his brother James Franco and many of his friends/co-stars?

There are numerous examples of individuals who have attempted to launch themselves to fame and fortune by leeching on the name recognition of a more renowned sibling.

Dave Franco can hardly be considered one of them, having begun his career with minor film roles (such as ‘Telephone Tree #5’ in Milk) and appearances in a handful of television shows before securing a main role in the ninth season of hospital comedy Scrubs.

Changes to the show’s format meant that it was cancelled shortly after his casting, but the younger brother of James Franco has followed its termination with a string of higher profile film roles, starring in 21 Jump Street and Now You See Me.

Though he could’ve shared the screen with his brother in This Is The End, the opportunity was never Dave Franco’s to turn down (unlike the other entries on this list) – the idea of his appearance was vetoed by the film’s co-creator, Seth Rogen, who believed the death of a main character’s sibling would make the light-hearted film too depressing.

Dave to possibly star in “The Sound and the Fury” film adaptation to be directed by brother James Franco.

James Franco has confirmed that he’s planning an independently financed film adaptation of William Faulkner’s 1929 classic novel “The Sound and the Fury”

Faulkner’s work follows a group of Southern aristocrats who fall on hard times early in the 20th century.

Franco will direct and star in the film from a script he co-wrote with Matt Rager. The pair wrote Franco’s recent adaptation of Faulkner’s “As I Lay Dying” which premiered at Cannes this year.

Assuming scheduling issues can be worked out, “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm will play the family patriarch, Mr. Compson. Danny McBride is expected to have a role, while James’ brother Dave Franco could be playing the suicidal Quentin Compson.

Shooting on ‘Fury’ aims to begin as early as this Fall. The news follows Franco’s recent pulling out of directing an adaptation of Andre Dubus III’s “The Garden of Last Days

Baby brother Dave Franco steps into the limelight
James Franco’s younger sibling is fast forging his own reputation

Trying to climb out from under the shadow of a successful acting sibling is no easy task; just ask most of the Baldwin brothers, or Eric Roberts. The more high profile the star, the harder it seems to be. So the fact that Dave Franco is no longer hanging onto the coattails of older brother James is impressive.

It’s arguable that the 28-year-old is the cooler of the two. Certainly he plays less pretentious types. His career has been built on comedy turns or characters he describes as “jerks or douchebags”. In 21 Jump Street he was the nerdy student who sold drugs. Pushing drugs was also his shtick in a brilliant appearance at a party in Greenberg. On the final series of TV show Scrubs he played a rich airhead who owes his internship to the deep pockets of his parents.

Having done his schooling in teen comedies and playing the guy with the evil glint, Franco is tired of being typecast. His next role is a sleight-of-hand magician in Now You See Me.

“I’m going to be honest with you, I think at first it was liberating for me to play someone that was so different from who I am, but after a while I’ve completely exhausted that role. There is nothing else I can do with it and that is one of the reasons why I was really attracted to Now You See Me, where I could play somewhat the underdog, the wide-eyed naive kid who looks up at all these other magicians, who knows he is a rookie and needs to earn his keep and prove himself. So hopefully people will see a slightly difference side to me.”

‘Now You See Me’ tops ‘After Earth’ at weekend box office; ‘Fast 6′ stays at No. 1
LOS ANGELES — With its supercharged muscle cars, “Fast & Furious 6″ raced to first place at the box office for the second consecutive weekend.

The Universal Pictures release is expected to add another $34.5 million to its North American ticket sales, keeping it in the No. 1 spot after opening to more than $120 million over the Memorial Day holiday.

Box-office analyst Paul Dergarabedian said the sixth installment in the street-racing franchise was “preordained to be No. 1 again.” But in a season of sequels, three original films were among the most popular at cinemas over the weekend.

“Ordinarily, summer and sequel go together,” he said. “This is a step in the direction of originality.”

Among the new original offerings was the magic-heist thriller “Now You See Me,” which exceeded industry expectations to debut in second place with $28.1 million. The Lionsgate/Summit Entertainment release features an ensemble cast, including Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Woody Harrelson, in a tale of illusionists who rob banks and share the spoils with their audience.

“It certainly has been magic for us to watch the numbers this weekend,” said Richie Fay, Lionsgate’s president of domestic distribution, who attributes the film’s success to a “brilliant marketing campaign” and positive word of mouth.

After a string us hilarious videos, Dave Franco became a breakout stars in 2012’s 21 Jump Street. Now he takes on his biggest acting role yet in this summer’s surprisingly fun movie Now You See Me as magician Jack Wilder. Dave Franco sat down to talk about his love of movies, action scenes, and beating up The Hulk.

On if he still watches moves..

“It’s the reason I’m doing all this. I love movies and it’s how you learn. Since I love to write and I want to make my own films, I take little things from these directors and writers that I really admire so I try to see as much as I can. For example, my first job ever was when I was 14 was working at this mom and pop video store. We were able to take home five movies a week and that’s how I started watching movies”

On his Funny or Die videos….
“Everyone has a camera these days, so there’s no reason for you not to be filming. If you put it online and nobody watches it, who cares? If you put it up and a bunch of people are attracted to it, who knows what kind of doors can open. The videos that I’ve done for Funny or Die have been so helpful. The website is so popular now that if you have a video that happens to be a success, more people will potentially see it that if you did an independent movie. I’ve developed a relationship with the people at Funny or Die and they’ve been great to me. At this point, they tell me to go out and do whatever I want.”

Dave discusses nepotism in the entertainment industry, Kickstarter, and his aspirations for the future with Interview Magazine.

NIKI CRUZ: In this film, you’re not playing a high school student. How long have you waited to play someone your age?
My whole life! [laughs] No, it is nice. Everyone always says it’s a blessing to look a lot younger than my age, but sometimes I just want to look 27. It’s not really specified how old I am in the movie, but yes it’s clear that I’m at least out of high school.

CRUZ: Are you at a point in your career where you have a road map of what you would like to go out for?
Yeah, I have an idea. I think at this point, I’m trying to avoid any more asshole roles, at least for a little bit. The main criteria for me when choosing a project is a good director. I just want to work with these guys that I admire because I do want to direct my own films one day, and I want to pick their brains to see what their process is like, and see what I can take from that. In general, the few directors that I’ve worked with that I really respect have taught me a lot about who I am and they’ve opened me up as an actor. I want to take some of that to apply it to when I’m directing actors.

CRUZ: Would you want to direct full-time?
I would love to balance that out with writing. To be honest, I don’t see myself acting forever. I just can’t imagine myself being a 70-year-old man fighting for roles. I would love to do small parts in my friends’ movies or things that I’m directing myself. I do envision myself behind the camera as I get a little bit older.
