From E! Online:
Tinseltown’s favorite Renaissance Man has put out a casting notice on Actors Access, an online casting guide, for a feature film he’s looking to direct about “two Hollywood celebrities.” And wouldn’t you know, he’s searching for two actors who can pass for Lindsay Lohan and himself.
According to the casting breakdown, Franco is looking for a male to fill “James Franco Types ages 13, 21, 30, 45, and 60.”
Regarding his LiLo lookalike, the thesp is seeking a female to play a “Lindsay Lohan type ages 13, 21, 30, 45 and 60.”
Precious little other information about the flick was disclosed, including whether Franco or Lohan—who are said to be close pals—will be making an appearance.
But the producers listed are Miles Levy and Vince Jolivette, who are partners with Franco in Rabbit Bandini Productions, which produced his 2010 biopic Howl and are behind Lovelace, the upcoming film about porn star Linda Lovelace.
Here’s the tie, though—the real, real reason behind all of this completely bizarre f-ckery: James Franco heard about Lindsay allegedly partying with Kristen, and now that Kristen’s technically back on the market, James is making his long-suffering romantic play for Kristen, no matter what he has to do in the process. And if that means including Lindsay in some A/B-list stuff and potentially harming his reputation of being taken seriously, then so be it.
