In case you didn't know, the 37-year-old identifies as Jewish. HOWEVER, he grew up in a secular household and missed out on certain cultural traditions.
Including having a bar mitzvah!
Well no need to worry because his BFF Seth Rogen is coming to the rescue!
On October 17, Rogen and his wife Lauren Miller Rogen are throwing the bash at the Hollywood Palladium all in the name of charity!
The funnyman and his beau started Hilarity for Charity to promote awareness of Alzheimer's disease after his mother was diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's at age 55.
According to the Knocked Up actor:
"Ever since I've known James, he's been talking about wanting a bar mitzvah. We're excited to see him finally become a man while also helping us raise awareness and funds for people living with Alzheimer's and towards research that will lead to a cure. And in celebration we'll also have a mohel and a live bris for James at the event."
On Wednesday, Franco went on his Instagram to promote the religious event!
"You KNOW you won't want to miss this!!!… Seth Rogen and the Gang are going to throw me a Bar Mitzvah!"
To enjoy the festivities, you can buy tickets on August 11.
We just hope James knows how to read the Torah!
