James Franco Hustles For A Job On Colbert, Stephen Sees Through His Slow Charm


All the jobs! All the jobs in the world must belong to James Franco! At the beginning of last night's episode Stephen vows to use Franco's Colbert interview to expose the Your Highness star as "the fraud he is," and, well, let's just say I don't think James is really reading that huge tome. After pretending to be his own brother Frank Jameso (because, sure), Franco gets buffeted by the winds of Stephen's intense charisma. After being bested at a Lord Of The Rings trivia face-off and talking at length about why he is enrolled at approximately eighteen universities (because acting is an interpretive art not suited for real men?), James tries to get hired as "art consultant," examining Colbert's set decor and explaining "I can comment on this, I can get a lot of great real artists comments on this. I know them." Well, I know a few of them too James," Colbert reassures him. Somewhere an unemployed "art consultant" weeps in gratitude.

    Paul Brittain's parody of James Franco was eeeerily accurate. ALL THE JOBS indeed!
