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.
