You have to admire one thing about James Franco’s new book, which comes out today: It has a certain thematic unity. Franco is a hack-of-all trades pretending to be a writer. Amazon is a world-destroying monopoly pretending to be Franco’s publisher. And the story in question, Actors Anonymous, is all about faking it. I shit you not, an entire section of Actors Anonymous is printed in color-coded Comic Sans. So it’s a big phony, but at least they’re owning it?
