Let’s Put James Franco on All the Book Covers

Last week, when presented with the As I Lay Dying movie tie-in with James Franco on the cover, the internet let out a collective groan. On the one hand, the outrage is understandable. It is a pretty silly cover. On the other hand, is this really worthy of our righteous indignation?

I say, instead of resisting we embrace the ridiculousness and put James Franco on ALL the book covers. Who’s with me?

To help you ease into this brave new world, here are 10 Franco-fied classics for your suddenly smoldering bookshelf:

letters from the earth featuring James Franco


A Room with a View featuring James Franco


Love in the time of cholera featuring James Franco






The Last Temptation of Christ featuring James Franco
