Watch James Franco Funny or Die Video For Jimmy and the Cop 2010-03-30 11:00:25

James Franco: Love Him or Leave Him?

I just can't figure James Franco out. One moment I think he's a big goof by guest starring on General Hospital as a character "whose canvas is murder," but then he writes a high-brow analysis of the move, and I then decide that he takes himself too seriously. Now comes news that he's pursuing his PhD at Yale and writing a book, and I think he's back to being earnest about his work. Right on schedule, then, he makes a Funny or Die skit lampooning himself in a fake rehearsal for Jimmy and the Cop (warning: language is NSFW).

I can't tell — is James Franco just a genius that I don't get? He's definitely easy on the eyes, but his wide variety of intellectual and arty pursuits makes me think he's on an advanced plane of thinking that's inaccessible to me. What do you think of him?

Love Franco. I like that he seems to be balanced, having serious pursuits but also keeping a sense of humor about it all. His career choices keeping you guessing and avoid the issue type-casting. And just when you think he is being typecast, he does a Funny or Die video lampooning the issue. So, once again, gotta love him.

I'm with Bryseana - I've loved him since "Freaks and Geeks." That show has truly set some awesome careers in motion. I'm particularly fond of Jason Segal, and I love seeing Sam (John Francis Daley) as Dr Sweets on "Bones." So sad that the show only lasted for one season, I would have loved to have seen what happened to the crew after that summer.

I've liked him since Freaks and Geeks. He has a great dramatic and comedic actor. It's cool that he can laugh at himself.

I few years ago i had won tickets to see the premiere of one of the Spider mans... I met James Franco while walking into the theatre, and he was a super nice guy. I can't say if hes full of himself or not, but he definitely is nice.
