James Franco: Geek to Chic

I'm really digging the September '08 cover of GQ Magazine:

For whatever reason, I never gave much attention to James Franco in terms of appearance until recently - but after seeing that magazine cover, and these shots from the GQ photo spread...

...he's got my full attention now ;) He was the only reason I didn't get up and walk out of Pineapple Express - not only did his spot-on performance and relentless delivery make up for what a massive tool Seth Rogan is, he was STILL hot as a greasy, dirty, stringy haired pot dealer. That's pretty impressive in my book, HAHA. Yeah, I know I'm weird. He's come quite a long way from Freaks and Geeks:

Beyond oogle-worthy cover and photo spread, the actual article on James Franco in GQ is really good - you get a sense for his intense work ethic and exactly what he goes through to be so damn good. Definitely check it out on the GQ website. They're not stingy - they actually post articles in their entirety online, unlike the tabloid magazines. HOLLER.
