An artist himself, James Franco perused the work at Aaron Young's Built Tough opening at the Bortolami Gallery in New York City. The actor was athletically attired in a black baseball cap, black and blue jacket and black jeans. He was in a fantastic mood, grinning from ear to ear as he walked right up to the exhibition. The affectionate actor also hugged various gallery attendees before studying the work upclose.

Levi Johnston is not done baring all.
The recent Playgirl nude model, who had a relationship with Bristol Palin and fathered Sarah Palin's grandson Tripp, is ready to give an inside view of the famous family.
His story will be revealed in Deer in the Headlights: My Life in Sarah Palin's Crosshairs, to be released this fall by Touchstone Publishing.

Bristol Palin is managing to be both excited and coy about reports she's dating a new guy.
When asked on KWHL's The Bob & Mark Show Friday if she and a 20-year-old Alaska pipeline worker are an item as rumored, she replied, "Are you guys getting personal with me, really?"
But the hosts on the Anchorage-based show pushed her to just admit she has a new boyfriend, helpfully suggesting that she say, "Yeah, you know what, I'm seeing a guy and he's really great and Tripp loves him and we're having a really good time and we're really good friends."

There is at least one good thing about Levi Johnston's mayoral ambitions in Wasilla, Alaska, according to his ex, Bristol Palin: It will force him to continue his education.
The Dancing with the Stars contestant and daughter of a former Wasilla mayor says that Johnston will need to get his GED before he can run for office, which is "great." He'll also have to relocate within city limits.
"It is an important position," Palin, 20, tells Ellen DeGeneres on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show. (DWTS partner Mark Ballas appears with Palin.) "And I don't think he knows what he is getting himself into."

While ex Bristol Palin is doing plenty of dancing as a contestant on ABC's Dancing with the Stars, Levi Johnston is doing a different sort of dancing – dirty dancing – in singer Brittani Senser's new music video.
The clip for the R&B song "After Love," which features Johnston writhing and cuddling with Senser on a blanket, perhaps escalated problems in the 20-year-old's relationship with Palin over the summer. In an interview with PEOPLE at the time, Palin said Johnston lied about the purpose of a trip to California during which time he shot the music video.
"He told me [his trip to L.A.] was to see some hunting show," she said at the time, "but come to find out it was that music video mocking my family."

Back on the outs yet again with the Palin clan, Levi Johnston – would-be Hollywood star and new candidate for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska – says Bristol Palin is just as hungry for the limelight as he is.
"I don't think I'm any more obsessed with making a career out of this than she is," the recent Playgirl model said in an interview that ran Friday on CBS's Early Show. "Obviously she's doing Dancing with the Stars. I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with any of it. I'm just taking it as it comes.
And as for that apology to almost-mother-in-law Sarah Palin? "That was something I did to make my fiancée happy," he said.

Having targeted his constituency, Levi Johnston opened fire on his campaign for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, at the Chimo Guns shop in the small (pop. 10,000) town he calls home – until, that is, Hollywood beckons.
His letter of intent was filed Friday with the Alaska Public Offices Commission, allowing him to appear on the ballot in October 2011 at the earliest, according to ABC News. Johnston, 20, then moved on to the gun shop. There, reports TMZ, he looked at (but did not buy) a few models, including a $2,000 Weatherby Ultra Lightweight hunting rifle.
Throughout his day, he was trailed by a reality TV camera crew, for his proposed series, Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office.

Move over, Jimmy Kimmel. Kathy Griffin is gunning to be Levi Johnston's campaign manager as he runs for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, and she even has a strategy all dreamed up.
"The campaign would be based on me being the first lady," the comedian, who once feigned a relationship with Johnston for laughs, tells PEOPLE. "But it would also be based on a celebration of Levi trolling the town shirtless – or being photographed in the shower in various stages of undress."

Jimmy Kimmel is not afraid to take a political stance on his late-night talk show.
On Thursday's Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the funnyman welcomed Levi Johnston by announcing that "He is to Sarah Palin what voicemail is to Mel Gibson," and proceeded to give the Wasilla, Alaska, mayoral candidate a collection of campaign gear.
"I would love to see you become the mayor," Kimmel insisted as he brought out several items with various campaign slogans. "I really would."

When it comes to his quest for ratings, Levi Johnston is more than willing to let reality take a backseat.
As part of a potential reality show called Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office, the former Playgirl model, 20, says he will run for Sarah Palin's old job as mayor of Wasilla, Alaska. There's just one hitch: He doesn't live within city limits, a requirement for the post.
His likely opponent, the city's current mayor, isn't fearful for his job.
