James Franco will be back for more of The Deuce, the HBO show about the birth of the porn industry (not the parking lot from Lady Bird). Deuce writer Megan Abbott told Entertainment Tonight that the actor, accused of sexual harassment and abuse of power by five women in a Los Angeles Times exposé, would “of course” return for the HBO show’s second season. After the allegations against Franco surfaced following his Golden Globes win, Deuce creator David Simon released a statement saying that Franco was “entirely professional as an actor, director and producer.” Franco plays a pair of twin brothers on the show, executive produces the series, and directed two episodes of the first season.
