The action takes place on a subway car in New York City in the early 1960s. The two main characters are Lula, a young white woman, and Clay, a young black man. Lula alternates between seducing and mocking Clay. How do sex, seduction and race all come together?
Perhaps, I thought, the fact that we live our lives in public now is not just a quirk of social media, but a chance for us to step into the limelight, to push ourselves beyond our own comfort zones.

From a famously divided Congress that finally agreed on something (Sunny Obama is adorable!) to two international sporting events whose execution proved more entertaining than the actual sport, 2014 definitely did not disappoint us in terms of buzz-worthy events.
When ABC's hit show Ugly Betty wasn't renewed after four critically acclaimed seasons, actor Michael Urie, known to millions of fans as Marc St. James, returned to his roots in the theater. Today the 33-year-old graduate of Juilliard is starring in Buyer & Cellar, one of the most celebrated off-Broadway shows this year.
Is Jason Statham the new Sylvester Stallone?
Let's be honest - if he didn't think the Kimye video for "Bound 2" was going to be made fun of, we'll have what he's having. And while we're on that topic, we'll probably have what Seth Rogen and James Franco are having as well.
Also in Franco's favor is the category itself: Jared Leto, Tom Hanks and Michael Fassbender are locked in as nominees from my vantage point, but that leaves plenty of room for others. My boy Daniel Bruhl deserves a shot, but the memory of "Rush" is fading in the rear-view mirror. Barkhad Abdi had a nice story, but no one seems too excited about that nomination (and if we're being real, he's not that great in "Captain Phillips"). No one has seen what Jonah Hill or Bradley Cooper do in December's two Scorsese movies, "The Wolf of Wall Street" and David O. Russell's "American Hustle." John Goodman isn't really in "Inside Llewyn Davis" enough to rate (the cat has more screen time). James Gandolfini could get in for "Enough Said," but that still feels like a nice idea more than an actual movement. Why not Franco?

Set in the isolated backwoods of Tennessee and shot in bleak brown tones, Child of God is about a serial necrophiliac named Lester Ballard, repulsive, violent, barely civilized.

After watching Harmony Korine's guns/boobs/drugs-filled drama Spring Breakers, this guy decided it would be a good idea to get Franco's character from the movie, rapper Alien, permanently inked onto his body.
Revelers and roasters hit the Red Carpet for The Comedy Central Roast of James Franco with spunk and fervor recently and their target was clear: To poke fun at the eclectic Oscar nominee/filmmaker/artist/Yale student/teacher/esoteric, creative beast.
The fact that porn has become such a punchline in our culture -- something that is joked about in mainstream humor as a signifier for all that is horny, male and, often, lower-class -- is hard to believe, from the perspective of the social history captured in Lovelace.

I thought I would break down for you Channing Tatum's five gayest movie roles -- so far. And I say that because, as you'll see, they keep getting gayer and gayer. James Franco, beware! Tatum is catching up fast. And I couldn't be happier.
