As my friends, colleagues, and acquaintances surely know, I have more than a tiny hetero-non-sexual-man-crush on James Franco. It all started with his portrayal of Daniel Dasario in Judd Apatow's Freaks and Geeks and an award winning performance for his James Dean biopic, and the lust/love has just never stopped. His new movie Pineapple Express continues the love. Now while the SCOPE blog's primary purpose is to keep you all posted on happenings in the music world, a little pop culture couldn't hurt. So here is the next installment in Judd Apatow's guaranteed blockbusters (following Knocked Up and Superbad), a stoner comedy featuring Freaks and Geeks alums Seth Rogen and James Franco. The plot follows Seth and James' characters as they....well....I guess the plot isn't really that important. Hearing pudgy white people say things like "thug life" and listening to James Franco list the ways their hiding spot could be discovered (heat seeking missiles, bloodhounds, foxes, and baracudas) is probably all the convincing you need. Watch the red band trailer here.
