The 34-year-old renaissance man has an undergraduate degree from UCLA, among other diplomas. He's been nominated for an Academy Award, and even (sort of) hosted the awards in 2011. Professionally, Franco has acted in a long list of movies, directed several others, and even written roughly a dozen plus screenplays.
Starting today, November 27, multi-hyphenate Franco can be seen facing off against Jason Statham in the Sylvester Stallone-penned action flick "Homefront." Franco plays Gator, a small-town meth kingpin who butts heads with Statham, a former DEA agent who shows up in Franco's town to finally settle down with his family.
Do you already know more about Franco than you'd care to? Maybe. Do you know everything there is to know about the man? Unlikely. From his middle-school shoplifting days to that time he shadowed a male prostitute, »

Channing Tatum has unveiled a spoof of Jean-Claude Van Damme's recent Volvo truck commercial. The original video went viral and featured the action icon doing the splits between two big rigs as they drove in reverse. If you haven't seen it, check it out below.
The commercial demonstrated the precision and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering. A world first technology that makes the new Volvo FM easier to drive.
While on the set of 22 Jump Street, Channing Tatum attempted the splits on a slightly smaller scale as his character in the film, Jenko. See if he succeeded.
Hollywood is positioning 2015 to be the single biggest year for movies in the history of the medium, with The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Star Wars: Episode VII, Batman Vs. Superman, Mission: Impossible 5 and Bond 24 all arriving within months of each other. But standing in the way are the twelve months of 2014. While the New Year doesn't quite pack the heated punch of 2015, it does bring some highly anticipated fare that we simply can't wait to see. From plenty of superheroes, to evolved apes, to giant robots, to teenage vampires, and even the return of Dominic Toretto, here are the 14 movies guaranteed to get us standing in front of that box office window buying a ticket before 2015 does its ultimate damage on our savings account.
We're starting to worry about Zac Efron's bone density! E! News reports that the actor had a nasty run-in with a puddle of water that resulted in a broken jaw and stitches. He also had to have his jaw wired shut. Last April, Efron busted his hand during a scripted fight with Dave Franco on the set of "Neighbors." That's not to mention the other medical troubles he's had this year. Yikes!
Hopefully, his jaw will be back in working order in time for the January release of his next movie, "That Awkward Moment," with Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller. At the moment, though, plans for Efron to promote the movie are on the back burner.

With Now You See Me conjuring its way into UK homes on DVD and Blu-Ray on October 28th, HeyUGuys had the opportunity to speak with director Louis Leterrier. After managing Statham and Hulk rage, Louis has decided to enter the world of smoke and mirrors. Speaking with us he explained how Now You See Me reflects his cinematic taste, shared his thoughts on the multiplex audience, being shocked by Janet Leigh’s death in Psycho, as well as his hopes for the Now You See Me sequel(s), and took a moment to contemplate his native cinema.
Do you believe in magic?
[Laughs] Well it depends. There are several kinds of magic. I came onto the project as a sceptic admirer, but I was wowed meeting real magicians, illusionists and mentalists. I was wowed by the power of magic, and so yes now I’m a believer. I came in as »

Sofia Coppola's teen burglars bling home the bacon – but her dad goes straight to DVD. Plus the latest streaming action…
Here's a suitably alarming story for Halloween: Francis Ford Coppola, the man responsible for Apocalypse Now and the Godfather trilogy, is now a director of straight-to-dvd horror. All right, it's not as bad as all that. His latest film, Twixt (Metrodome, 15), has languished on the shelf since premiering at the Toronto festival two years ago, too eccentrically auteurist to catch the recent wave of vampire-movie mania and too schlocky for the arthouses. Bundled on to DVD in time for the spooky season, it emerges as a daft but sporadically endearing curio, a sort of Midnight in Paris with filed fangs.

“First rule of magic – always be the smartest guy in the room,” maintains Jesse Eisenberg's smug magician. Four fast-talking illusionists/charlatans – Eisenberg , Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson and Dave Franco – are invited by a shadowy organisation to become bank robbers. After a solid, perky start, this convoluted, hyperactive thriller starts to unravel and the thin characters lose definition. More heinously, Louis Leterrier wastes the talents of Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo (who almost single-handedly saves the show) and Melanie Laurent. »
Universal has released the second - and first green band - trailer for its upcoming frat-boy comedy Neighbors. This film stars Seth Rogen (This Is the End) and Rose Byrne (Insidious: Chapter 2) as a married couple with a young child who are forced to act after a frat-house headed by Zac Efron (The Paperboy) and Dave Franco (21 Jump Street) move next door. The green-band trailer has many of the same jokes as the first without the vulgarity but it still looks incredibly funny.
Although it doesn't open until next May, Universal is cranking out its campaign for Neighbors incredibly early on which is a cause for concern as it may result in many of the jokes being revealed before its release. However, the first two trailers are certainly promising and with an incredibly strong and comedically talented cast, Neighbors looks like it could be the big comedy of 2014.

Originally titled Townies, Neighbors is set to hit cinemas in May next year, and if the first trailers are anything to go by, it’s going to be another huge hit for Seth Rogen and his fans.
Universal launched the brilliant first red-band trailer back in September, giving us a hilarious first look at the upcoming comedy. And now following it nicely comes the first green-band trailer, via Fandango, giving us a new, and more work-appropriate, look at what is soon coming our way.
A couple with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house.
Rogen and Zac Efron star opposite each other in the leads, with Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Jake Johnson, Jason Mantzoukas, Craig Roberts, Ike Barinholtz, and Lisa Kudrow heading up a very promising ensemble cast.

Universal Pictures has unveiled a new trailer for its upcoming "Neighbors" comedy, starring Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Lisa Kudrow and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Check it out below. In the new movie, a couple (Rogen and Byrne) with a newborn baby face unexpected difficulties after they are forced to live next to a fraternity house. "Neighbors" is directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Five-Year Engagement) and is set to hit theaters on May 9th, 2014. Trailer: »
Following last month's red-band version here's a more all-ages green-band trailer for Nicholas Stoller's Neighbors (American spelling; no U), starring Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron. It's just the same, but milder! Although it does still manage a "focker".Previously known as Townies, the film's prank-war screenplay comes from Judd Apatow alumni Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien. Stoller's most recent gig behind the camera wasThe Five Year Engagement. He also made Forgetting Sara Marshall and Get Him To The Greek, and co-wrote The Muppetsand Muppets Most Wanted. Along with Rogen, Byrne and Efron, Neighbors stars Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse and Lisa Kudrow. It's out in the UK on March 7 next year. »
A month ago a funny red-band trailer for the Seth Rogen and Zac Efron comedy Neighbors was released online, and today we have the official theatrical trailer for the film, which is just as entertaining. The movie looks like it's going to be a great comedy. I never thought I'd say this about a Zac Efron movie, but I can't wait to see this.
The story follows a young couple "suffering from arrested development who are forced to live next to a fraternity house after the birth of their newborn baby." So basically, Rogen and Efron go to war with each other, and it's going to be great!
The movie was directed by Nick Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek) and also stars Rose Byrne, Dave Franco, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Lisa Kudrow, Jake Johnson, Ike Barinholtz, and Craig Roberts.
It comes out on May 9th, 2014!

Just seeing Seth Rogen.s name in the same description as .green band trailer. takes that extra bit of energy to get into, since it.s mentally challenging to hear his oddly graveled voice not talking about male genitalia in some way. But the above trailer for Nicholas Stoller.s Neighbors actually works better than the previously released red band trailer. That.s assuming it works for you in the first place, which is not a given. Not being a fan of Zac Efron or Dave Franco or modern movies that heavily involve fraternity behavior, I had zero positive expectations for this film, but I.ll be damned if it doesn.t look just goofy enough to interest me. This trailer, via Fandango, follows the same beats as the first trailer, just replacing the vulgar moments with new jokes. Some of those jokes are relatively stupid, such as Mac (Rogen »
We’ve previously brought you red-band trailers for both That Awkward Moment and Neighbors, however, we’ve tamer green-band trailers for both the R-rated comedies led by Zac Efron. The first is an adult-themed romantic comedy centred on three best friends who struggle with the pack they made about not falling in love. With Neighbors, it’s a more gut-busting, puerile affair with former Disney heartthrob and his frat boys making life hell for his neighbours.
Check them out below!
That Awkward Moment is written and directed by Tom Gormican and co-stars Michael B. Jordan, Miles Teller, Imogen Poots, Addison Timlin, Lola Glaudini, Josh Pais, Emily Meade and Jessica Lucas. It hits Us theatres 31st January and the UK 7th February 2014.

Following the hilarious raucous from the first red band trailer for Nicholas Stoller's new comedy Neighbors, a more tame but still hilarious green band trailer has arrived with some new funny stuff. This time there's a great gag as Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne try to remove a provocatively posed bush that Zac Efron created in their year, and also some extra bits with Dave Franco doing his best Robert De Niro from Meet the Parents. This looks really funny, and it's a bummer we have to wait until next summer to see it. Between this and That Awkward Moment, it seems like Efron will have some solid comedies on the way. Here's the new trailer for Nicholas Stoller's Neighbors from Fandango: Neighbors is directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Get Him to the Greek, The Muppets) with a script from Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O'Brien »

Universal has released a new trailer for Nicholas Stoller's new comedy, Neighbors. The film stars Seth Rogen and Rose Bryne as a married couple who must deal with a fraternity when it moves in next door. Universal is getting a big jump on the movie (it doesn't open until May), but they could have a great one here. Like the red-band trailer, I got plenty of laughs not only from Rogen and Byrne, but also from Zac Efron, who plays the lead frat boy. My only concern from a marketing standpoint is that Universal might give away too many jokes in the long lead-up to the film's release. Hopefully, that won't be the case. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film also stars Dave Franco, Jake Johnson, Carlo Gallo, Lisa Kudrow, and Christopher Mintz-Plasse. Neighbors opens May 9, 2014. »
