Lindsay Lohan Stars In New R.E.M. Music Video Directed By James Franco

Nov 17, 2012 10:00 AM

It seems as if Lindsay Lohan was perhaps a part of rock history as it's been revealed that she appeared in what could be the last music video from rock group R.E.M.

The much maligned actress starred in the video for Blue as a muse for celebrity photographer Terry Richardson, which was directed by none other than James Franco.

The band's final and 15th album, Collapse Into Now, came out in 2011 but the music video has been kept buried in the archives until its release this past Thursday. See how Lilo shines for the cameras in what could be the band's last video!

James Franco Records Duet With Smokey Robinson

Oct 24, 2012 01:35 PM


Um, what?!

Smokey Robinson revealed that he recorded a duet with James Franco and his band Daddy. So random!

During an interview with the New York Post at Monday's Angel Ball in NYC, the motown legend revealed his unlikely collaboration with the actor. After a chance encounter on a plane, the Oscar nominee asked Robinson to make a song with him, to which he happily agreed. "He asked me to do it, and so I did it. It's as simple as that. There's no deep dark secret," he explained.

The song, called "Crime," has yet to be released.

The Pineapple Express star is known for taking on quirky projects, and we're sure this will be no different!

We can't wait to hear the tunes!

The Oscar-nominated actor and the Pretty Little Liars actress met while filming the indie movie, and apparently they hit it off so well that the blonde beauty dumped her boyfriend!

The 22-year-old was reportedly dating Justin Bieber's "swagger coach" Ryan Good until she met Franco.

"Once the shoot wrapped, Ashley told Ryan they needed to 'slow down' and then booked a flight to New York City to go see James' art gallery showing," a source told Radar.

James Franco plays Oscar Diggs, a circus magician who is transported from Kansas to Oz, and he is "reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants ... Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well."

franco042412_02_X17crop230.jpgJames Franco almost starred opposite Rihanna in her 2011 "We Found Love" music video, according to Mr. Franco himself.

In a recent interview with MTV News, Franco admitted:

    “She actually asked me to be in that video, the one with the relationship that gets crazy. I couldn’t do it. But, I guess, I hope that that means there’s mutual love between us.”

RiRi definitely has good taste! Recently, Franco made headlines when he posted a clip of himself lip synching Rihanna's "You Da One." Adorbs!

Although we would have loved to have seen James in the "We Found Love" video, the part of Rihanna's troubled leading man went to male model Dudley O'Shaughnessy.

The film also stars Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Ashley Benson, and The Biebs' gal pal recently posted this picture to her Instagram account... looks like the cast is having tons of fun shooting!
