Everyone be sure to get your copy of this weeks issue of Entertainment Weekly, there’s a page under ‘Reviews/Movies’ featuring Dave as ‘A Whole New Franco.’

A Whole new Franco

There are downsides to being James Franco’s little brother. You have to root for the Green Goblin. Family rock-climbing vacations are always a drag. And you will probably never be invited to host the Oscars. But there are upsides, too: For one thing, you get to look a lot like James Franco. Also, presumably, you get the same genes responsible for awesome acting talent.

“People expect me to be this great actor,” says 26-year-old Dave Franco as he sips a cup of tea at a hipster-filled cafe a few blocks from his apartment in Hollywood. “When I first came here from Palo Alto to be an actor, I was just like any other kid. I didn’t know what the hell I was doing. But because of my last name, people paid more attention to me. They expected more from me. They assumed I would succeed in this crazy business.”

It appears they assumed correctly. On March 16, Franco stars opposite Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill in the R-rated tongue-in-cheek big-screen reboot of 21 Jump Street, the 1980s cops-in-high-school TV series that made Johnny Depp a star. Franco plays a politically correct, tree hugging drug dealer, and it’s a more high-profile role than any of his previous work in movies (like last summer’s Fright Night) or on TV (like his 2009-10 guest-starring arc on Scrubs). For lots of people in the audience, 21 Jump Street will be the first time they see Franco’s incredibly familiar-looking face unless they happen to be fans of Funny or Die, where last year the Franco brothers posted a series of hysterical clips of James giving Dave over-the-top acting lessons. That’s where Christopher Miller and Phil Lord, the codirectors of 21 Jump Street, first spotted him. “There was something about Davey in those pieces he did with James that we wanted to bring to the character in our movie,” says Miller. “There’s just something about being a young brother-a vulnerability and a sweetness that makes Dave really, really likable.”

Jump Street is only the beginning for Franco. He already has two other big projects lined up. He’s costarring with Nicholas Hoult and Teresa Palmer in a zombie love story called Warm Bodies, scheduled for release next year, and he has nearly finished shooting Now You See Me (with Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, and Woody Harrelson), an action-heavy heist film about a group of magicians who use their bag of tricks to pull off bank robberies. “the last two weeks I’ve been doing this huge fight sequence with Mark Ruffalo in which we’re literally kicking the crap out of each other-my whole body is bruised,” Frnaco says, beaming.

Of course, being a Franco he won’t stop at just acting. At SXSW this month, he’ll be premiering a short film called Would You that he wrote and shot with some pals. “It’s about a bunch of friends playing the ‘would you rather’ game but all their choices end up magically coming true,” he explains. “It becomes weirdly sexual and bizarre. My mom is in it, playing my mother. Once people see it, they’re going to be creeped out by what I made my mother do.” Seems like the kind of thing that would make his brother proud.

Scans> 2012> Complex – Feb/March 2012 x 001

Dave is in the latest issue of Complex Magazine, check out the scan in our gallery & the excerpt I typed up (my eyes hurt).

MY COMPLEX
DAVE FRNACO

The 21 Jump Street star opens up about his fears of fame and lying in his famous brother’s shadow.

Growing up, I had no intention of acting. I was pretty shy, I said maybe one word in junior high school…But I’m pretty comfortable with who I am. That has to do with having an incredible family and amazing friends who I’ve known for a long time. They keep me grounded. They’re supportive of what I do, but when it comes down to it, they don’t give a fuck what movie I’m doing or who I’m hanging out with.

I love my brother to death and I respect him so much. He’s incredibly talented and I would love to collaborate with him…But I’ve been trying to distance myself and show people that I’m my own person despite us looking similar and having similar mannorisms. I don’t want to be referred to as “James Franco’s little brother” for the rest of my life. It’s unfortunate because we work so well together and we’d have a lot of fun.

The most awkward part of the Funny Or Die video “Go Fuck Yourself” is that there was a double there the whole time. He’s a friend of mine, so we were able to be as comfortable as possible in very awkward situations. I’m comfortable with my sexuality, and for the sake of humor I’m willing to take it there…But there was a moment during filming when I said, “This is the first time that I’ve offended myself. This is bad, guys.”

One part of the movie business that scares me is losing my ananymity. Granted, this is if everything works out, but I have a small freak-out moment every few months…But I’ve seen that you can be smart about fame. You don’t have to go to the biggest clubs where you’re gonna be seen. And when people approach you on the streets, for the most part they’re not coming up to say anything mean.

Where You’ll Find Him:
In the movie version of 21 Jump Street (the ’80s TV show that made Johnny Depp famous!), in theaters March 16.

On Famous Bro, James Franco:
“We really understand each other on a really deep level. We’ll go into details about girls, but we don’t have to talk about acting or always dive into and talk about the most serious things.”

On the Secret Way to His Heart:
“When I’m dating someone, if she bonds with my cats I’ll give her a chance maybe more than I would otherwise. But if she doesn’t like my cats it’s kind of a deal breaker.”

Hey guys! It’s been a while since I’ve had an update for you, but today I bring you a scan of Dave looking hot in Glamour Russia. The scan is off of the April 2011 issue with Diane Kruger on the cover in which Dave is featured as “A New Generation of Actors,” and I have also uploaded a photo from the shoot.

Scans> 2011> Glamour Russia April 2011 x 001

Photoshoots> Set 013 x 001


Here is a translation of the article using Google translator, sorry if it doesn’t make too much sense but I do not speak Russian (Obviously).

Dave Franco, 25

The younger brother of James Franco has played with Sean Penn (“Milk”), Zac Efron (“The Double Life of Charlie St. Cloud”) and Colin Farrell (Fright Night). It is not excluded that soon they will all be proud of.

DF: “Actually, I’m pretty laid-back guy. But when I go hang out with my friends, I can pretty fool. If only you knew how I dance! Ask my friends – they will show you. They kept my parody “dance Davey.” In principle, nothing complicated: jerked his arms and legs. I would see myself from outside, perhaps, would be horrified. But what to do, so really I am. “

Teen Vogue: Let’s get this out of the way: He’s Jame’s little brother- but who cares? Dave, an ubertalented 25-year-old, is an actor, writer, and future director. He has tackled TV (Scrubs), sketch comedy (Funnyordie.com), and recently played Emma Roberts’s beau in “Go Outside” (a music video for indie band Cults). This summer he’ll hit the big screen as a school bully in the campy reboot of cult-classic vampire flick Fright Night (alongside Colin Farrell, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Anton Yelchin, and Imogen Poots), “I keep getting cast in these roles-they see me as a jerk!” Dave says, “But I swear, I’m a nice guy.” (Editor’s note: He totally is.) – Tommy Wesley

Dave is in the latest issue of Black Book which you can pick up now, and thanks to Facebook we have a scan you can check out in our gallery. Below is an excerpt from the scan in which Dave talks about acting & his latest projects.

Scans>Black Book 2010 x 001

THE NEW FRANCO
Let’s just get it out of the way, Dave Franco is James’ little brother. You first met him playing just that on the Funny or Die web series Acting with James Franco, in which James taught Dave the dark secrets of the dramatic arts.

In truth, one might expect the Franco boys to say rehearse lines toghether the night before an audition. One would be wrong, “We don’t really talk about acting very much,” he says “We have a strong relationship and we work well together, but mainly with writing.”

Franco is strangely calm considering he has a “large” audition tomorrow. There will be no craming, no panicking. “I’ll probably watch a movie and try to distract myself,” he says. By now, the 25-year-old actor has been to so many auditions that he knows most casting directors on a first name basis, and yes he can’t quite figure out why they keep asking him to play assholes, “I don’t even know how to feel about it anymore,” he says. “I’m a nice guy, I promise.”

Nice or not, Franco will up the douche ante next summer in Fright Night, a big budget remake of the 1985 horror flick, in which he plays a bully so vile, “you’ll be praying for his death,” he says. Fright Night isn’t Franco’s first brush with fake blood.

Three classes away from earning a degree at the University of Southern California, he flew to Canada to shoot the unreleased Bad Meat, a B-horror movie he calls the worst experience of his life. “But it was my first starring role,” he says. “The momentum started from there.” He is also
writing and directing the web series Undergrads, a gritty, semi-scripted glimpse of life on USC’s campous. “I don’t want to put myself on the back,” he says, very un-asshole-like, “but I’m really pleased with it.”

This months issue of ELLE Magazine is now on stands, and features Dave along side Clark Duke (Greek & Kick-Ass) & Donald Glover (Community) as “the next crop of bright young things.” See the scan in our gallery, and the excerpt below.

Home > Scans > ELLE Magazine

Dave Franco, 25 – The Breakout: Funny or Die sensation (as his older bro’s much tortured protege in the viral mock-tutorials Acting With James Franco), who recently appeared as a cocky med student in the final season of Scrubs and as Zac Efron’s departed friend in Charlie St. Cloud.

What else do you want to do before you’re 30? I picked up the guitar a year and a half ago, so, on the record, one day I want to play a concert for…50 people.

Fifty? You’re really shooting high: I’m gonna keep my bar low for now.

What’s the best part of being 25? Now that I’m older, I look 17 instead of 16. Everyone says it’s good to look young in this business, but damn, I just want to look my age!

DAVE FRANCO Actor
Summer in the city means: I’ve never spent a summer in NYC, but my friends here say it means digging your air conditioner out of the bottom of your closet and putting it in your window. Also, it means a lot more drinking.

What he’s working on: I’ll be in Detroit working on an Indie film called The Darling Brothers. Also look out for Charlie St. Cloud with Zac Efron, coming out this fall.

Dave is in the current issue of Corduroy Magazine and he talks about his acting career. See the scans in our gallery & an excerpt from the article below.

Scans > Corduroy Magazine – Issue 7

don’t think that just because his older brother James is a certified A-list star that Dave’s path to stardom was paved in golden bricks. Granted, James helped him find a manager, but that’s where the nepotism ended. “I know I did over a hundred auditions before I even got the smallest of jobs,” says Franco, whose first role was alongside Jane Seymour in the indie film, After Sex.
