It will be a December to remember for James Franco
, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres
and her Photoshop skills!
The actor, 35, shared a hilarious photo on Instagram
on Wednesday showing his face superimposed on the body of a shirtless hunk in red underwear and a Santa hat, with a similarly festive cat sitting on his shoulder.
Apparently it was the work of DeGeneres, who seems to have made Franco the unwitting star of a mildly racy holiday calendar.
"MERRY XMAS!!!! - ELLEN MADE ME tHIS CAlENDaR," the actor wrote in the Instagram caption.
Franco is set to appear this Monday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show
, where, in addition to his new career as a calendar model, he will talk about his latest movie role in Homefront.
