I guess when you’re James Franco, you’ve got a little more confidence during the pitching process. Instead of shrugging and suggesting maybe some live footage of the band over the years, or some artsy minimalist look to represent the emptiness of a world without R.E.M., James Franco is like, “Fuck it, cat face, Lindsay Lohan, me dancing. These are just a few of my ideas. What do you think?” And then everyone nods and is like, “Okay, excellent, James Franco.”
