James Franco Blond Wig: Actor Shows Off New 'Do (PHOTOS)

My, what lovely blond locks you have, James Franco.

The eccentric actor took to Who Say on Monday to show off a softer side -- a platinum blond look, complete with a trendy set of bangs.

But this photo isn't evidence of the first time the actor has traded in his dark hair for something a bit brighter. At the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, Franco turned up to a party sporting a long, curly blond wig.

Are we sensing a pattern here? Perhaps Franco should skip his next few trips to the barber shop and make this a more permanent look -- we don't hate it!
