In the now infamous parody, Franco's flapping shirt is flawless – and we can't even find the right words for Seth Rogen's back-arching skills – but one thing made this video pure magic and that's the bromance.

Like nearly everything Kanye does, it was also ripe for parody, and that's where James Franco and Seth Rogen come in.
"Bound 3 (Vague)" isn't what you'd call "high-concept." It's a shot-for-shot mimicry of Kanye's notorious video, only this time Franco plays Kanye and – you guessed it – Seth Rogen plays Kim.
And yes, they make out.

Is there really ever a case of too much of a good thing? Not when we're talking about a nearly naked James Franco.
The actor, 35, got the social media world hot and bothered last week when he Instagrammed a pic of himself wearing nothing but a red Speedo and a Santa hat (alongside a cat in a Santa hat).
But while fans thought Christmas had come early – a James Franco with Cats calendar would be the perfect stocking stuffer – they were sorely disappointed to learn that the six-pack abs belonged to a model, whose face had been swapped out with Franco's courtesy of some clever Photoshopping by Ellen DeGeneres' staff ahead of his appearance on her show on Monday.

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.

Broadway could be getting a high-wattage dose of brotherly love next spring, as James Franco and Chris O'Dowd are likely to star together in Of Mice and Men.
It would mark the Broadway debut both for Franco, 35, and O'Dowd, 34, the Irish actor who shot to fame as Kristen Wiig's policeman love interest in Bridesmaids and as Thomas John on Girls.
Franco, an Oscar nominee for 127 Hours, has officially signed on to play George, while O'Dowd is still in negotiations to play his mentally limited brother Lennie, reports the New York Times.

Esteemed ladies and gentlemen of the Academy, consider this sh*t.
The latter phrase is the amusing headline on a new "For your consideration" ad seeking Oscar votes for James Franco as Best Supporting Actor for his work in the ribald drama Spring Breakers.
The ad has quite the arresting image, too: Franco, 35, as his gangsta character Alien from the film, clutching a pair of Oscar statuettes and flanked by a couple of bikini babes.

For the Comedy Central roast of James Franco, the writer/actor/director/producer was braced for tasteless jokes at his expense. What he didn't know was that all the roasters were fair game, too.
"I've never watched one of these roasts. I chose not to research this so I had no idea that they were going to be roasting each other [too]. I thought I'd be sitting here for two hours bearing the brunt of it so it was a huge relief," Franco said. "I had a great time. Everybody was awesome, solid."
Before it airs Monday on Comedy Central (10 p.m. ET), we've selected some of the best zingers and put-downs to add some sizzle to your Labor Day.
