One to Watch: Dave Franco

written by Jenny XIX.VIII

Watch your back, James Franco!

The ever-busy actor, director, screenwriter, author, painter, documentarian, performance artist, PhD candidate, intermittent “General Hospital” visitor, and Oscar nominee for 127 Hours may soon find himself competing for roles with his younger brother, up-and-coming actor Dave Franco.

Dave’s first major film role comes this weekend in the remake of the beloved ’80s vampire flick Fright Night, where he plays the high school buddy of lead Anton Yelchin. It’s a fairly standard teen jock bully role, but Dave has an on-screen charisma that clearly signals he’s headed for bigger things. And remember, even James started out in the low-brow teen comedy Whatever It Takes.

6 Things To Know About Dave Franco

written by Jenny XVIII.IV

At the Franco dinner table, Dave may sound like the underachiever when compared to older brother James, who recently hosted the Oscars, is slated to star in and direct several high-profile projects, and is working on, like, a zillion different graduate degrees at once.

But can we talk for a second about how freaking cute Dave is? And his acting career is starting to take off—he has just been cast in “21 Jump Street,” the movie reboot of Johnny Depp’s star-making show. He’ll be acting alongside Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, playing a super cool high schooler who just happens to be a big time drug dealer.

1. In high school, Dave was a bit of a book worm. His mom told Oprah Winfrey he ” was writing a lot of poetry in high school and even getting it published.” And he says his inspiration is “Roald Dahl, whose books got me reading and influenced my dark sense of humor.”

2. It took him until college to get into acting. “I audited this class and the people onstage were screaming and crying and hitting each other. I was like, “F**k this!” It was so intense. But I ended up sticking it out, and I really liked it.”

3. While his brother can’t stop enrolling in school, Dave dropped out of USC to try his hand in Hollywood. The 25-year-old’s first role was a bit appearance on “7th Heaven” and he’s also played small parts in “Milk” and “Superbad.” His biggest part to date was playing intern Cole Aaronson on the final season of “Scrubs.”

4. Dave is close with his brother. “I don’t take for granted him helping me get my foot in the door,” he says. “From there on out, people aren’t going to hire me because I’m James Franco’s little brother. I’m trying to distance myself.” He’s even starred in a few Funny or Die clips with his bro. In one called “Acting With James Franco,” Dave and James recreate a scene from “Rebel Without A Cause.”

Dave Franco Joins 21 JUMP STREET

written by Jenny XIV.IV

Hot off the heels of the news that Rob Riggle is in talks to play a villain in the upcoming 21 Jump Street movie, Dave Franco has joined the cast as one of the villains as well. Deadline reports that Franco will star as Eric, “the most popular kid in school.” Eric is a drug dealer at the high school that the characters played by Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum infiltrate as undercover cops. Hill befriends Franco’s character in order to get close to the “cool kid” crowd. I’m not exactly sure how Riggle fits into the equation villain-wise, but it makes sense to have a more significant bad guy in the film in addition to the “douche high school drug dealer.”

Additionally, with production on the film fast approaching, serious plans are now being made for Johnny Depp to cameo in the film based on the TV show that launched his career. While it’s uncertain what role he would play, apparently producers are working on getting the actor on set to shoot a quick scene. Directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the film stars Hill, Tatum, Ice Cube and Brie Larson. 21 Jump Street hits theaters on March 16th, 2012.
