We all think of James Franco as the actor who starred in movies like ‘Spider Man,’ ‘Milk’ and ‘127 Hours,’ but as his resume continues to expand, we’re going to start thinking of him as an ad campaign director. Yup, James Franco’s first gig involving an advertising shoot will entail the celeb both filming and shooting Seven For All Mankind’s spring campaign.
