James Franco Sold His First Novel

The busiest movie star-performance artist-writer-grad student-dreamboat in the business has apparently found time to attempt another literary opus. (Palo Alto, his collection of short stories, was published in 2010 to less-than-enthusiastic reviews.) Franco has sold Actors Anonymous to Amazon's publishing division; the novel will reportedly be "a fictionalized version of Mr. Franco’s experiences as an actor." So not only do we get a new piece of Franco meta art to obsess over, but we also get to play the Blind Item game with basically every actor or director that Franco has ever worked with! There are gonna be some great angry boulder stories in this one, for sure.
