Rob Epstein, Jeffery Friedman
James Franco, David Strathairn, John Hamm, Jeff Daniels
Over the last two years James Franco has gone to great depths to be respected as an actor and entertainer. From playing Sean Penn’s love interest in last year’s Milk
to stepping onto the small screen for a stint at ‘General Hospital,’ the young thespian has come a long way since Spiderman
first made him a recognizable star. Now, portraying a youthful Allen Ginsberg in Sundance’s opening night film Howl
, Franco surprised me even more, setting himself up for another great year in his still growing career.
