James Franco Steps Into Ginsberg's Shoes and Howls

James Franco Steps Into Ginsberg's Shoes and Howls

James Franco transformed into poet Allen Ginsberg on the set of his new movie Howl in NYC yesterday. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ginsberg's most famous work, James is taking on the biopic along with costars Jeff Daniels, Mary-Louise Parker and Paul Rudd. After a year of diverse movies including Pineapple Express, Milk and . . . Nights in Rodanthe, James Franco isn't ready for a break yet. Maybe this role is less of a stretch for James as a dedicated student and future published author himself.

i don't know how he has time for all the movies that he's working on given that he's the one that's talking all the time about how he's enrolled in both columbia and NYU. i guess he's able to manage it some how.
