Zac Efron Dating Dave Franco? Not So Fast!

25 July 2014 10:48 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Your Daily Roundup of Hollywood Happenings & Star Shenanigans!

In Your Lgbt Dreams!: James Franco might have posted what appears to be a story about his brother Dave Franco dating Zac Efron, but it's (sadly) not true. "Efron and My brother, dating!!!!!! Congrats, boys! I'm so happy for you!!!" James wrote in the doctored shot. The story was actually an April report that claimed that Zac – who is now linked to Michelle Rodriguez – was dating his "Neighbors" co-star Halston Sage.

James Franco Dating Dave Franco

24 July 2014 11:38 PM, PDT | icelebz.com | See recent iCelebz news »

James Franco posted a hilarious screenshot of a supposed HollywoodLife article announcing brother Dave Franco's relationship with his Neighbors co-star Zac Efron (and while we think it's safe to assume that everyone understands this is totally fake, we may be wrong, so here's your disclaimer: Dave Franco and Zac Efron are not really dating. Sorry?)

Yes, the screenshot looks pretty convincing, but if you pay attention to the details of the picture, you'll notice that the font varies in different instances and the author of the story is "Dave Francock" with a thumbnail of James Franco.

The 127 Hours star jokingly captioned the photo, "Effron and My brother, dating!!!!!! Congrats, boys! I'm so happy for you!!!"

So who was the funnyman (or woman) behind this masterpiece? Well, it's unclear. It turns out there's an actual "Dave Francock" on Instagram, who posts multiple pictures with Dave Franco edits, including this article. »

Franco's "Blood Meridian" Test Reel Online

22 July 2014 8:11 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Recently James Franco directed a low-budget film adaptation of "The Road" and "No Country for Old Men' author Cormac McCarthy's novel "Child of God," a book with subject matter so dark that many though it to be essentially unfilmmable.

Nearly four years ago, Franco wanted to do something even more ambitious though - direct an adaptation of McCarthy's arguably darkest work to date - "Blood Meridian". He was so enamoured with the idea he shot a 25-minute rough test reel of a key sequence in the story, and scored actors like Mark Pellegrino, Scott Glen, Dave Franco and Luke Perry to help him pull it off over the course of a three day shoot near Yosemite.

Now, that test reel has gone online. It's rough and lacking polish, but it shows a scene where Tobin recounts how the Glanton gang met the Judge, a Satan-like character and Glanton’s right-hand man. »

Watch: James Franco's 32-Minute Test Reel For Cormac McCarthy's 'Blood Meridian' With Dave Franco, Luke Perry & More

22 July 2014 6:21 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At this point, James Franco can only be described as James Franco-esque: he writes books, writes reviews, does art installations and occasionally does some movies—both in front of and behind the camera. You may remember that back in 2011 Franco was circling an adaptation of Cormac McCarthy’s iconic novel “Blood Meridian” and shot some test footage as a proof-of-concept to get the rights to the novel. Now, in advance of the release of Franco’s adaptation of a different McCarthy novel “Child of God,” the actor-cum-director (among other things) has released that test reel for all to see. The test sequence lasts nearly a half hour and stars Scott GlennLuke Perry as Tobin and Glanton, respectively, alongside Mark Pellegrino as the Judge and Dave Franco. The test centers on the portion of the novel where “Tobin recounts how the Glanton gang met the Judge.” And, writing for Vice, »

The Outtakes from Conan O'Brien's Tinder Adventure are Great

21 July 2014 3:38 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

If you didn't see the spellbinding 12-minute video of Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco enjoying a Tinder adventure, remedy that immediately. Every last second of it is good. And now we have the outtakes from that app, and get this: They're also awesome. Conan is not dissuaded by women who hate booty calls. In fact, it makes him even more determined. And even a little frightening. »

Watch outtakes from Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien's Tinder bit

21 July 2014 3:32 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Conan O’Brien recently enlisted Dave Franco to go on a Tinder adventure with him. The stars set up profiles using fake names—Chip Whitley for O’Brien; Djengus Roundstone for Franco—and new profile pictures, then got to it. And by “got to it,” we mean they tried very hard to find a woman who would agree to meet up with them.

Franco and O’Brien did end up meeting with a fellow Tinder user—and even managed to lure her into their creepy, duct tape-filled van. But the most amusing part of the bit was watching the two craft their profiles, »

Watch Outtakes from Conan & Dave Franco's Creepy Tinder Segment (Video)

21 July 2014 2:30 PM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco‘s deliberately creepy exploration of Tinder barely began to reveal the depths of their Tinderness. Last week, the two gauged women's reactions to their arriving for dates in a van. But in newly released outtakes, it gets shadier: O'Brien puzzles over how young is too young for his potential Tinder dates, contemplates how far he's willing to drive and realizes after the fact that he forgot to remove his wedding ring for one picture.

Conan O'Brien and Dave Franco Had the Best Tinder Date

18 July 2014 10:36 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Conan O'Brien wanted the full Tinder experience, so what did he do? He recruited the help of the winsome Funny Or Die favorite Dave Franco for help. He absolutely got the help he needed. This is an elementary Conan O'Brien observation, but it's so nice to see a talk show host who can be seriously improvisational during a bit. Almost all of the jokes Conan uses here are made up on the spot; long-form extemporaneous humor is pretty rare among talk show hosts these days. I'm still laughing about half the material in this 12-minute video including the very existence of Conan's typewriter. »

This might be the best thing you see all day!

F--k Dave Franco!," we're sure the "Neighbors" star had no problem finding some matches. Conan named "Chai lattes" and "showering" among some of his hobbies and lied about his age. "I am 42 years old and people tell me I look like Conan O'Brien," the comedian posted on the site.

Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien took Tinder to a hilarious new level on Conan on Thursday night. The two decided to create fake profiles and swipe together, even staging a hilarious photo shoot for their profiles first. "I am 42 years old, and people tell me I look like Conan O'Brien," Conan - aka Chip Whitley - wrote in his. "I like Chai lattes and showering." Dave, aka Djengus Roundstone, wrote, "I enjoy wearing Crocs for their style over their comfort, and I hear I look like a poor man's Dave Franco. F*ck Dave Franco!" After saying "yes" and "no" to potential dates, they even swapped phones . . . and both matched with 74-year-old Gloria. Though she turns Conan down gently, she loves Dave. Check out the video above to see their shenanigans, including when they hop in their van called "Brown Lightning" and meet their Tinder matches face to face. »

Speed Read: Scott Disick Was Hospitalized For Alcohol Poisoning

18 July 2014 5:39 AM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Source: Getty / Tom Briglia Scott Disick was reportedly hospitalized for alcohol poisoning last month. A source says he "went through a dark place" at the time but is "doing great now." This is what happens when Dave Franco and Conan O'Brien make fake Tinder profiles and track down their matches: FedEx has been indicted for shipping prescription drugs for illegal online pharmacies. The company allegedly "departed from its usual business practice" to allow the drug trade, in spite of warnings from Congress and the Drug Enforcement Administration. Israeli tanks drove into Gaza to launch a ground operation. Israel's prime minister says they are going to destroy tunnels that go into Israel from the Gaza Strip to prevent Palestinian attacks.
