James Franco portrays Justin Bieber in 'Boyfriend' video

Posted on

James Franco…teen pop aficionado?

The latest chapter in the saga of Being James Franco involves the multi-hyphenate entertainer portraying Justin Bieber and lip-syncing his way through “Boyfriend,” along with an assist from rumored-girlfriend and Spring Breakers co-star Ashley Benson.

The best part of all of this is that this isn’t the first time Franco has lip-synced to teen hits. Earlier, he swapped out the Bieber wig for cornrows and did his best impression of Bieber’s sometimes-girlfriend Selena Gomez’s song, “Love You Like A Love Song.” Gomez also stars in Spring Breakers with Franco.

The video starts out as “harmless” fun with Franco looking like he’s having a genuinely goofy time impersonating the Biebs. It then takes a real creepy twist right around 2:20, when another girl (Who is it?) shows up and starts grinding on a bed with Benson. I think? There are a lot of bad wigs happening. Description of the video? “He deleted it but it was too late.”

Form your own opinion and check out the Bieber wannabe below:

Oscar-nominated Franco will next be seen in an actual movie when Oz, The Great and Powerful hits theaters March 8.
