Actor and author James Franco has landed a book deal to publish his first novel with Amazon.
According to the New York Observer, 3 Arts Entertainment agent Richard Abate negotiated the deal for Actors Anonymous with Amazon fiction editor (and departed Believer editor) Ed Park. As you ponder the news, you should listen to the Hoodie Allen song, “James Franco.” The video is embedded above, with a bit of NSFW language.
Here’s more about the deal: “The novel is said to be a fictionalized version of Mr. Franco’s experiences as an actor (and grad student?). Mr. Franco’s first book, a collection of short stories called Palo Alto, was published by Scribner.”
