PHOTOS: James Franco Goes Blonde, Joins A Boy Band & Pops Molly With Zachary Quinto To Promote New Gay Film

Screen Shot 2014-08-13 at 11.09.51 AMBecause it’s only ok for James Franco to give a wink to his non-gay gayness, not anybody else, the actor is back again with some more uploads.

It should be noted that this recent batch of social media finagling is to promote his upcoming film Michael which costars Zachary Quinto and Emma Roberts and has Gus Van Sant attached as executive producer.

We’re actually quite looking forward to the film, which tells the story of real life gay journalist turned ex-gay pastor Michael Glatze, and is based off of this 2011 New York Times profile on Glatze. Michael (Franco) worked at the now-defunct XY Magazine and co-founded another gay magazine called Young Gay America only to then quit, break up with is boyfriend (Quinto) and marry a woman (Roberts).

But let’s get back to James Franco and his Instagram feed, shall we? He’s gone blonde for the film, and hasn’t been shy about the transformation:

And he is the first to make fun of the 90’s ‘do, photoshopping his head into boy bands:

Then there’s this upload with romantic co-star Zachary Quinto of the two at what appears to be a rave hanging with their girl “Molly,” though the photo is too dark to confirm with the size of their pupils:

      That should be an interesting story. I imagine drugs were part of Michael Glatze’s crazy ass life.

      Ha. Bad photo shopping but for some reason it works with the fakeness of the boybands.

      @Stache99: Yeah, it looks to me that the Photoshopping was deliberately bad to make it look more tongue-in-cheek.

      He looks like he’s had a bath.

      He looks better with his original hair color. But I like him any way.

      I miss the 90s, I have a thing for blondes :) Shame I was still in my early teens during most of the 90s.

      Child molesters who target males overwhelmingly identify as hetero in their adult relationships. Many so-called “ex-gays” are not actually gay people. This sounds like a movie about a molester getting old after targeting young males with magazines. Gross to try to attach that to the gay community.

      I remember when I first started posting here everyone seemed to adore him. Now everyone seems to hate him or laugh at him. Its kinda sad. He is still hot in my book and he is an ally, despite his eccentricities.
