EYE CANDY ALERT! James franco talks about his new movie Pineapple Express..

The plot description says the movie follows a pair of toking buddies who get mixed up with a drug gang. When asked about the “stoner” elements of the film, Franco discussed his character and Seth’s and that the film is split in two pieces: the first half being a stoner movie, the second being an all-out action movie.

“Part of the humor is that you have two characters, I play a low level pot dealer and Seth is my client. It’s two characters that are completely unequipped for much of anything, especially battling heavily armed bad guys, and it suddenly switched to this action film, and the action is done in a very realistic way, and that’s I guess part of the humor.”

James provided heaps of praise for the project, which he said he wouldn’t have even taken on if it weren’t for being hilarious.

“I wanted to do a comedy for a while, it’s just that it’s hard to find a comedy that I think is good, and that I don’t feel like I’m making a jackass out of myself for no reason when it’s not even funny. And I feel like [Judd] Apatow is making some of the funniest movies around.”

James also talks about working with director David Gordon Green and how great he and Apatow are in working together.

“David is fantastic, obviously he comes from the independent world and this is a much larger film than he’s done before. He fits right in to the Apatow family. The working process that Judd has developed for his films is to allow for a lot of improvisation. There’s a script but then… I think on Knocked Up they used more than a million feet of film, so that shows that they just let every take roll out. Because they’re just improvising and trying so many things. And that’s really how I think David worked on a lot of his films, although he didn’t have the money to afford all that film that Judd used, he gets actors and non-actors and goes off script and allows them to just bring so much of themselves to it. I mean sometimes he’ll just say, well just tell a story about this thing in your life. That’s how his movies have achieved that very realistic slice of life, quality. And so it’s working very well for this movie.”

Ahhhhhhh! Loving the Franco is soooo easy!
I’m glad he’s venturing into comedy again. He’s been on the crazy (Harry Osborn) & serious (Tristan, Annapolis) treadmill of film lately. He needs a break!
