James Franco spent Saturday painting a mural of his "The Is the End" co-stars in Brooklyn, because what else would James Franco spend his Saturday doing?

The 35-year-old actor/director/writer/student/professor/artist/drag-queen impersonator took to a wall near Bedford Avenue and Grand Street in Brooklyn's art-friendly Williamsburg neighborhood. There he threw up a colorful but rather crude portrait of himself, Seth Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson.

The title of the mural is, naturally, "This Is the End." Gawker reports that Franco was working with Sky High Murals, which is responsible for many large-scale advertising murals seen around New York and other cities.

This marks another avenue of promoting the apocalyptic comedy, due in theaters June 12. Directed by Evan Goldberg ("Superbad," "Pineapple Express") and Rogen, "This Is the End" features select members of the Judd Apatow clan portraying fictional versions of themselves following a global apocalypse. The movie boasts an all-star lineup of cameos, including Emma Watson, Mindy Kaling, Paul Rudd, Michael Cera, Rihanna and Aziz Ansari.

If you're in New York, swing by the site of the mural before hostile Williamsburg residents defile it. Or simply click over to Gawker to see the photos.
