Even if you're not James Franco's biggest fan following his attempt to hit on a 17-year-old tourist girl (or following those heaps of strange, almost too-much selfies, either way), you've gotta admit — the dude was kind of hilarious and, dare I say, endearing during his appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last night. Along with host Jimmy Fallon, James Franco played "5-Second Summaries" on the episode, and, in addition to proving that he's an entertaining interview to watch, Franco proved that:
A) He does not know anything about movies despite starring in a whole lotta them, and,
B) He does not know that you cannot say the word "f**k" on network television. Oh, James.
Anyway, it's a hilarious segment, spread into two clips. As the title suggests, it involves both Fallon and Franco attempting to describe a film title to the other within five seconds, in hopes the other will guess. If they don't within five seconds, simple — they lose. While Fallon is actually pretty good at the game, Franco basically gets none of them except a movie he was actually in. I guess he's just too busy conquering the art world and the theater world and the literary world and the directorial world and the poetry world and the higher education world and the film world and the I-lost-count-of-how-many-projects-he's-currently-working-on world that he just hasn't had time to watch many movies.
(But seriously, how did he not get Toy Story?)
