James Franco Goes Black Tie Sleeveless At Art Awards Show

|

What does Morrissey have in common with a Chippendale dancer? James Franco looked like both sex symbols at last night’s Rob Pruitt Art Awards show in Brooklyn. The perpetual mind-blower wore a sleeveless tuxedo shirt (with tie!) on stage, joining Guggenheim fellow, drag artist and frequent collaborator Kalup Linzy on stage for a show-stopping duet.The pair, who attended the LA Gay Pride Parade together earlier this year, previously sang “Proud Mary” together at a Campari’s 150th Anniversary party.

In related Gay Or Just Remarkably Secure In His Heterosexuality For A Hollywood Star James Franco news, the actor will return for two episodes of General  Hospital next year (no word on if he’s bringing Linzy along again). Franco has also bought the film rights to a biography of the late Sal Mineo, best known for playing Plato in Rebel Without A Cause. The star of Milk and Howl doesn’t plan to take the lead role himself, though. No, for this biopic of a gay icon, Franco plans to direct. See photos of the artistically-minded arms—woops, actor—in the gallery below.
