James Franco

Selfie-lover James Franco is charming and talented. He first gained popularity in TV's General Hospital and  Freaks and Geeks. He acquired many nominations and awards for his amazing performances in TNT's James Dean and the movie 127 Hours. Other Franco movies include Spider-man, City by the Sea, Oz the Great and Powerful, and the hilarious This Is The End. James received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame last year, and he will be presenting his latest film, The Sound and the Fury, at the Venice Film Festival.

What is James Franco's new favorite book?

Yesterday he tweeted and posted on Instagram, "My new Favorite book: The Long Home by William Gay. Check out the piece on VICE:"

From blurb: Set in rural Tennessee in the 1940s, 'The Long Home' will bring to mind once again the greatest Southern novelists and will haunt the reader with its sense of solitude , longing, and the deliverance that is always just out of reach.

HBO's True Blood is one of my all time favorite series, and Chris Bauer is a huge reason. Bauer plays Sheriff Andy Bellefleur on True Blood, and he just cracks me up. You also may have seen Chris in television shows such as Unforgettable, The Wire, and Third Watch. Also catch him on WE TV's The Divide. Bauer's movies include 8MM, The Devil's Advocate, and Snow White: A Tale of Terror.

What is Chris Bauer reading?

I asked Chris what his favorite and current reads were. Chris answered on Twitter, "current read 'war of art' by steven pressfield @SPressfield  favorite book: 'crime and punishment' #readmoreeveryday."

Thank you, Chris, for promoting literacy with me!
