And this is one of the best reasons!
In this hilarious clip from the film, Franco's character Dave Skylark is interviewing rapper Eminem.
During the interview, Eminem casually comes out
Mel Gibson is telling friends he never said John Lennon deserved to die!
Well imagine that!
It's not uncommon to hear The Beatles at Gibson's house.
And while Joe says he has many of Mel's alleged rants on tapes, he won't say whether or not he has the Lennon rant. Inneresting..
Meanwhile, Mel theorizes another reason why Joe would want to lash out at him. Not only did he and Warner Bros reject Joe's Maccabees script, but Mel admits he was putting in more time in on a viking film when Joe was trying to craft a proper story for Maccabees.
