Dave Franco in Interview Magazine!

I’m really excited Davey Dave Franco is finally starting to get some attention.  I’ve been a fan of his for almost a year now, and his videos on Funny or Die are hilarious.  For those of you not in the know, Dave just landed the lead on the new revamp of Scrubs, and also was Greg in “Superbad.” 

Dave was recently featured in Interview’s Discovery section and the answers he gives are pretty funny.   He obviously doesn’t take himself too seriously which is nice due to Hollywood being filled with so many pretentious guys lately who only want to talk about their “craft.”  Him and his brother James seem like the coolest guys in acting right now.

You can see for yourself, and read the interview after the jump!


Discovery Dave Franco

By Alexandra Mack

AGE: 24. HOMETOWN: Palo Alto, California. CURRENTLY RESIDES: Hollywood. CAREER GOAL: To create with friends and family—the Judd Apatow mentality. CHILDHOOD HERO: Roald Dahl, whose books got me reading and influenced my dark sense of humor. FAMILY CONNECTION: My brother, James, is really good about everything. He lets me have my own career, which is great. I don’t just wanna be James Franco’s little brother. ACTING 101: I audited this class and the people onstage were screaming and crying and hitting each other. I was like, fuck this! It was so intense. But I ended up sticking it out, and I really liked it. PREVIOUS ACTING GIGS: Greek, Privileged, and 7th Heaven. NEXT UP: I just did a Noah Baumbach movie called Greenberg, where I play a guy at a party in a scene with Ben Stiller. It’s a cameo role. I’m a huge fan of Baumbach’s—The Squid and the Whale [2005] is one of my favorite films. SECRET OBSESSION: I’m a cat person. I have two giant cats [Harry and Arturo] that I call the small panthers. They’re like 17 pounds each—they’re big boys! Every photo on my phone is of them doing something funny.
