In conversation with Jordan Bass, Executive Editor, McSweeney's

Whether playing a charismatic high school “freak,” teaching at UCLA, hosting the Oscars or writing novellas, James Franco has captivated audiences to become a modern-day Renaissance Man. There’s nothing this Bay Area native cannot do. Now, Franco adds one more exploit to the list – authoring the new book, Actors Anonymous, a tell-all about the dark heart of being a celebrity and the wild ride to the private club known as Hollywood. “I open the gates. I say welcome. I say, Look inside.”

Join us as we welcome James Franco back to his original stomping ground and hear about his enigmatic yet captivating world that seduced us all.
