See James Franco's book trailer for his novel 'Actors Anonymous'

Posted on

Actors Anonymous

James Franco writes what he knows in his offbeat first novel Actors Anonymous (Oct. 15), which follows his debut short story collection Palo Alto (2010). The structure of the novel is based partly on the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous, in that members of an actor’s support group make wild confessions from the trenches of their profession in each chapter.

In this exclusive book trailer, Franco and his fellow actors recite some of the maxims, confessions, observations found in the book, like “I’m a good actor, but sometimes I look like a bad actor,” and “I used to care about how I looked. Now I don’t care so much. Maybe it’s because I’m so handsome.”
