Let’s Put James Franco on All the Book Covers!

While we at the Riot take some time off to rest and catch up on our reading, we’re re-running some of our favorite posts from the last several months. Enjoy our highlight reel, and we’ll be back with new stuff on Monday, January 6th.

This post originally ran September 17, 2013.

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
