James Franco Hangs on to Milk Mustache


James Franco, who has recently been up in San Francisco shooting the Gus van Sant film Milk (in which he plays Scott Smith, Harvey Milk's lover) has either not finished shooting or decided to hold on to the 70's pornstache he grew for the film.

Incidentally, the red-band trailer for Franco's upcoming stoner flick The Pineapple Express (you may remember Franco giving a very in-character interview about it back in December) just came out.

Watch it, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. Scanning quickly, I saw only that the paragraph was about James Franco and then the last line, "...just came out." Andy, you almost gave me a heart attack!

  2. I believe they might still have pick-ups to do. It's not unusual to hang on to something like that if the stylists didn't get wigs and such in the first place.

  4. "Milk" filming in San Francisco continues through March. Shooting of the big Gay Pride Parade will be done on Market Street March 9, 2008.

  5. So hot -- ESPECIALLY with the moustache.

  6. ^ Oh yes. Agreed. I love the mustache. James is one of my favorites but with the new lip fuzz... yum! Admittedly, I have a thing for mustaches anyway. When George Eads grew one a couple of years ago, I was one of the few that hoped he would leave it. Now he was HOT with a stache! But alas, no. It was not meant to be.

    As for the movie... I am really interested to see what Gus has cooking. (Loving the coverage Andy! Thanks.) "Pineapple Express" looks really good too.

  7. Ok, after watching that trailer, I have to leave work early. At precisely 4:20. :)

  9. I'm saying a small prayer to the Goddess of Fashion "Dear Goddess, please don't let the gay community do their usual ractionary act and bring back the fashions of the H. Milk era. The San Fran Clone look was tired even when it was new. And since I have your ear, can you tell the last handful of gays that popped collars never actually made a comeback. Blessed be, Mike"

  10. I also misread that "just came out" sentence as implying that James Franco had just been outed. Honestly, writer-to-writer you might want to rework that sentence a bit ...

  11. I wouldn't necessarily call that a porn stache, Andy. I'd say its more or less just a moustache, and all the guys ages 20-27 in Brooklyn are wearing them.

  12. Filming has wrapped in the castro, but the other poster is right, they are here in the city until early March. We didn't see James around the neighborhood too much, so i'm guessing his role is limited. It seemed emile and sean were everywhere.

  13. Seth Rogen is so dreamy, I'd let him clean my bong anyday. I can't wait for "Pineapple Express".

  14. i know i'm fantasizing, but i would tap mr. franco 5 days from tuesday (is that the correct colloquialism?)

  15. Supposedly, this is filming at the same time as the Star Trek prequel, which will presumably include scenes of San Francisco.

    What happens if Harvey Milk runs into James T. Kirk?

  16. they're not done filming. i was at the set tonight and they said they still have more scenes to shoot around the city.

  17. Franco will wind up his part by March 13th at the earliest. Bet the 'stasch goes the minute he gets the OK. I know my goatee comes back a.s.a.p. at the end of filming...I feel naked without it.

  18. OMG....he's so hot! Super hot! Oh god...and that stache...oh my GOD!!! SO SO HOT! James Franco is so much hotter than Spiderman or Neve Campbell in "Company"! You know...he's just sooo hot! I'm sorry. So hot! Burn me Jamie, burn!!
