James Franco Complete Bio & Career

Growing up with his two younger brothers, Dave Franco, also an actor, and Tom Franco, James graduated from Palo Alto High School in 1996 and went on to attend UCLA, majoring in English. To overcome his shyness, he got into acting while studying there, which, much to his parents' dismay, he left after only one year. After fifteen months of intensive study at Robert Carnegie's Playhouse West, James began actively pursuing his dream of finding work as an actor in Hollywood. In that short time, he landed himself a starring role on Freaks and Geeks in 1999. The show, however, was not a hit to its viewers at the time, and was canceled after its first year. Now, it has become a cult-hit. Prior to joining Freaks and Geeks, Franco starred in the TV miniseries To Serve and Protect. After that, he had a starring role in Whatever It Takes.
Although he'd been working steadily, it wasn't until the TNT made-for-television movie, James Dean that James rose to fan-magazine fame and got to show off his talent. Since then, he has been working non-stop. After losing the lead role to Tobey Maguire, James settled for the part of "Harry Osborne", Spider-Man's best friend in the summer 2002 major hit Spider-Man. He returned to the Osborne role for the next two films in the trilogy.
Next was Deuces Wild and City by the Sea, in which Robert De Niro personally had him cast, after viewing his performance in James Dean. He was recently seen in David Gordon Green's Pineapple Express opposite Seth Rogen, in George C. Wolfe's Nights in Rodanthe, starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane and in Paul Haggis' In the Valley of Elah, starring Tommy Lee Jones. Also starring opposite Sean Penn in Gus Van Sant's Milk in which his performance earned him an Independent Spirit Award for Best Supporting Actor. Definitely growing out of his shyness, James Franco is turning into a legend of his own.
