James Franco Has Fans Howling at His Latest Premiere

James Franco suited up last night in NYC for a special screening of Howl. Despite the school year having started for James, who's working on a PhD at Yale in creative writing, he'll be plenty busy promoting his various upcoming films. His movie about Allen Ginsberg hits theaters in limited release tomorrow, while his project about trapped hiker Aron Ralston comes out in November. James was in Canada a few weeks ago premiering the latter flick, and it ranked among Buzz's top picks from the Toronto Film Festival. He's balancing his workload and promotional schedule, while still finding time to feed his appetite for pleasure reading. The Twilight series even came James's way, and after making his way through the four books he had a comment on all the sexual tension between Edward and Bella. James said, "I think I got to the sex scene, but it was so brief, I didn't even know if it was the actual sex scene. It was kind of a letdown after all that buildup."
