Man Candy Monday: James Franco

Let's get honest, this week's Man Candy choice, James Franco, is a bit weird in real life, but hot. I mean, is he high all the time or just "artistic"? Regardless he's super attractive, talented, and smart making him a worthy MCM selection. I first saw him in the TV movie James Dean and was smitten. He was great in the role and soon started getting more and more roles and his popularity soared.

Let's have a little viewing pleasure before getting to the stats:







Name:

James Edward Franco

Date of Birth:
April 19, 1978

Palo Alto, California

Heritage:
Dad's side is Portuguese and Swedish and mom is of Russian Jewish heritage.

Notable Roles:
James Dean
Freaks and Geeks
Spiderman 1, 2, 3
Annapolis
Pineapple Express

127 Hours
Many more...

-Graduated from Columbia
-Takes classes at NYU and Yale
-Accepted to The University of Houston and plans to attend in Fall 2012 for his PhD

I dare anyone to say that James Franco is not attractive! Can't do it, right? ;)

Giiiiiiirl . . . he is SO FLY! That second picture is smoldering! Glad we agree on this one. He's one of the hottest around. Plus, he's smart! I think he's getting his PhD in English, which makes him EVEN HOTTER.

I love how quirky and smart he seems!

Ashley {hudson's happenings} said...

YES YES YES YES. My favorite. Wow. Wow. I just love him. I read that he doesn't do drugs...so I think that makes his quirkiness a result of his intelligence. ;) And I definitely like a smart guy. Not to mention, SUPER HOT.

Hope you had a happy weekend!

I love this guy! He's so sexy and yet really off kilter, which I liked about him! Plus he's got some serious acting chops!

Jess said...

Agreed, he does seem a little interesting (to put it nicely) but nevertheless, he's HOT!

Leesh said...

oh...I don't like him. He is actually on my list of actors I hate. I am the black sheep of this group because I may be the only one who doesn't think he is hot. Sorry =(

meghan said...

Yes. Very attractive. And hello resume. But that attempt at hosting the Oscars was brutal. Ouch.

Amy Rene said...

love james franco!

Crazy Shenanigans-JMO said...

Ok, ok. Don't hate me but I can't stand him!!! He's one actor that if I know he's in something, I won't watch it.

Mimi said...
