I think we need to start a petition, as with his numerous LGBT roles James Franco is taking work away from good, honest, real gay people. Straight people coming over here and taking our jobs, it’s just not right!
Seriously though, no movie star before him has done as much as Franco to explore gay characters and stories as Franco has, as both an actor and a director. Now he’s back with another one, where he’s playing gay, but it’s the legendary Robert Duvall behind the camera.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Texas Ranger Samantha Payne (Luciana Duvall) reopens a 15-year-old Missing Persons case, uncovering clues linking a local boy’s death to wealthy family man, Scott Briggs (Robert Duvall). Samantha will stop at nothing to discover the truth even if it means risking her own life.
‘With the unexpected return of his estranged gay son Ben (Franco), Briggs must find a way to either silence the law for good, or come to terms with the hidden relationship between Ben and the boy that he tried to end years ago.’
The film, which sounds like it mightbe well worth watching, is due out in the US on June 5th. It’s not Franco’s only gay film this year, as he’s also got I Am Michael coming out, in which he plays a man who turns from LGBT activist to ex-gay poster child.
