Three's Company for Franco

I love James Franco. From his hilarious cover of Candy and stint on 30 Rock to his gay roles in MILK and HOWL, he’s a straight guy (sadly enough) who is unafraid to do some pretty non-mainstream stuff. Hollywood needs more like him.

News is out that James is set to star in a remake of Three’s Company. Yeah, you heard me right.

From the Times: But James Franco, as is his wont, sees more in that retro two-girls-and-a-guy comedy than just double entendres and the loveless marriage of the Ropers, and has made it the subject of a new work to be presented at the New Frontier program of the Sundance Film Festival in January.

Sounds brilliant to me.
