On the rise talent (and brother to James) Dave Franco has booked a villain role in Jonah Hill‘s 21 Jump Street reboot. He’ll play Eric, the big man on campus who also happens to be a drug dealer. Jonah Hill‘s character will befriend him in an attempt to take down the drug ring.
But seriously, one role, Dave? Pfft. Is that the best you can do? And you’re not even directing yourself. You’d better be hard at work on some kind of avant garde art installation or something. And don’t say ‘Looking a little bit like James Franco‘, because that’s a cop-out. (Deadline)
