James Franco has gone gangster! Hey there, I'm Karli Bulnes. See the pics and find out who he might be mimicking in today's PopSugar Rush. James Franco gets into character by channeling a couple well known rappers! New pics from the Florida set of Spring Breakers on Tuesday show an almost unrecognizable James toting two guns and posing with a bikini-clad group of girls, which includes Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens. PopSugar Editor Lauren Turner is here with even more details. James is playing a character named Alien, a gun and drug dealer who bails the girls out of jail after they rob a restaurant. he girls have been having a lot of fun filming over the last few weeks, and now that James has joined them, Selena tweeted a pic with the caption, "This is where the trouble begins." At first glance, James's costume appears to be inspired by Kevin Federline's style book — Cornrows? Check. Plain white top? Check, Baggy shorts and sneakers? Check, check. "Po, po, po, po, popozao, popozao" But even though K-Fed's rapping past and unique fashion choices are in line with the role, James's character is actually based on a different MC. James is actually modeling Alien after rapper and former MTV reality show contestant, Riff Raff. Riff Raff seemed to tweet his blessings to James yesterday and stated that next time, he'll be starring in a movie with James. Spring Breakers will be released in 2013.
