JAMES FRANCO: NOT QUITE AS HOT AS HE USED TO BE
James Franco is REALLY getting into character for his upcoming film “Zeroville.” Not only did he gain a few pounds and shave his head, but he had a temporary tattoo of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift in “A Place in the Sun” applied to his head. (The mustache is fake.) He’s directing himself in “Zeroville,” which was a bestselling novel about a student obsessed with movies who moves to Hollywood in the 70’s to find his way in the film business. Franco shot scenes on the red carpet at the Venice Film Festival, above, for his movie. A number of 70’s stars like Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw and Martin Scorsese and Robert DeNiro are expected to appear in cameos, which sounds like fun.
