We're digging this!
James Franco was set to receive an honor at the 2014 Venice Film Festival this past Friday, but the actor and director decided to shake things up a bit!
First there was the actor's brand new look where James displayed his bald new head, some suave sunglasses, and a brilliant fake mustache, all while in a dapper velvet suit as he sauntered up and down the red carpet. And of course — that tattoo!!
But James Franco wasn't doing all of this JUST for show! Although we're sure he enjoyed seeing the crowd's reaction!
He was actually also shooting a scene for his new movie Zeroville which features a scene from the 1977 Venice Film Festival.
At the present day festival, James Franco was presented with this year's Glory to the Filmmaker Award and one of his other movies - The Sound and the Fury - was screened out of competition at the Venice Film Festival this year!
We LOVE how fearlessly creative James Franco is, and it's obvious his hard work is paying off big time!
We can't wait to see how this movie Zeroville turns out!!!!
