Yesterday, Vulture informed you that James Franco currently looks Kevin Federline — which he does. There is no getting around it. But certain onlookers noticed that Franco's getup for the Harmony Korine movie Spring Breakers also resembles the day-to-day look of From G's to Gents star and rapper Riff Raff. David Shapiro reached out to Riff Raff on Twitter, and according to him, it's not a coincidence. "Harmony Korine called my phone to be in this new movie Spring Breakers. I was out of the country," Riff Raff explained. The timing didn't work out. "The role I would have played would be like a drug dealer, or the friend of a drug dealer, Gucci Mane, James Franco was in the movie, but I was supposed to be in there also. Now James Franco is playing me." Riff Raff kindly sent Franco a few wardrobe pieces, but he's a little bummed not to be part of the movie himself. Still, he has perspective: "I'm still glad that James Franco could play the role of me. That's like if Denzel Washington was playing the role of O.J. Simpson. Even though it's not O.J. Simpson, O.J. Simpson still gotta be like, 'Denzel Washington is playing me.'"
