Of course he did.
In the most recent installment of Zach Galifianakis' internet talk show "Between Two Ferns," the comedian asked
weirdo superstar James Franco, "Of all the art projects you've done, what has made people roll their eyes the hardest?" And you know what? It was a fair question. Franco has a restless creative spirit that often compels him to do really annoying stuff, like a "mixed media piece" for the Stella Adler studio called "Collage" (it supposedly combined dance, theater, music and poetry), publishing a book of poorly received short stories and hosting the Oscars.
While his latest project might not be quite as obnoxious, it is similarly arty and bizarre. On Saturday he painted a mural dedicated to the co-stars of his new movie "This Is The End." Franco even chose a perfect location for his new piece, one synonymous with arty nonsense: some random wall in Brooklyn.
This week: The romantic comedy gets an Oscar-winning upgrade with "Silver Linings Playbook," starring Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and Robert De Niro.
Also new this week is Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe in the police drama "Broken City," Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand in the road-trip comedy "The Guilt Trip" and the coming-of-age rock 'n' roll drama "Not Fade Away." Get More »
Apocalypse comedies are all the rage lately – seriously, they're more common than Nicolas Cage movies right now – but in terms of originality, it's hard to beat "This Is the End."
The summer release, co-written and co-directed by longtime buds/collaborators Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg, features six of film's funniest joke-slingers (Rogen, James Franco, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Jay Baruchel) playing "heightened versions" of themselves on the night of The Reckoning. Better yet, it takes place at a Hollywood house party and features handfuls of celebrity cameos, many of which end in gory demises.
That leaves our six main players left to fend for themselves while utter catastrophe reigns outside of the house (Franco's) they've barricaded themselves in.
We ventured south last spring to behold some of the improv-heavy shenanigans on a soundstage outside of New Orleans, where Franco's Hollywood house had been constructed. Here are the 15 most notable quotables. Get More »
Well, that was unexpected. It seems like Aubrey Plaza, star of TV's "Parks and Recreation" and the upcoming "The To-Do List" checked one very unique task off her list last night: Stage-bombing Will Ferrell in the middle of his acceptance speech for the Comedic Genius Award at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards.
Attendees were just as surprised by the unscripted moment as audience members and Ferrell himself.
The MTV Movie Awards turns 22 this Sunday, April 14, which means yes, our beloved awards show has been drinking legally for a year.
In people years, the MTV Movie Awards still wouldn't be able to rent a car at the regular rate; but in the accolades-passing-out universe, 22 consecutive years of awarding popcorn statues to the A-list, producing the funniest movie spoofs ever, trying to wrangle Jim Carrey through his many stunts and witnessing the horror that was Borat's booty in Eminem's face has made it one of the most fun, most can't-be-missed awards shows in all Awards Show Land.

Seth Rogen successfully launched Hilarity For Charity, an event that benefits Alzheimer's disease research. What does this mean? It means he doesn't have to do anything charitable again for the rest of his life.
In fact, the "This Is the End" star can now reset the balance of the universe by engaging in decidedly uncharitable acts, such as robbing convenience stores, not picking up his dog's poop and giving a little kid a cigarette. The possibilities are endless, actually — he can make meth with Bryan Cranston, indulge in a heroin-fueled threesome and play Russian Roulette with bloodthirsty revolutionaries.

New apocacomedy "This Is the End" may be based on the (hopefully) fictitious end of the world, but one part of the movie definitely was real: Michael Cera's sore face.
In the red band trailer for "This Is the End," the twee Canadian slaps pop dinger Rihanna's read, and she gives him a smack of her own — across the face. So much for stage fighting, as Seth Rogen, one of the film's stars, revealed to MTV News' Josh Horowitz that the slap was real. And hard. Get More »
Contrary to the title, "This Is The End" marks the beginning of MTV's third annual Sneak Peek Week. The week-long event amps up moviegoers for the MTV Movie Awards (Sunday, April 14 — write it down!) with exclusive movie clips and some of Hollywood's biggest stars. Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson and Evan Goldberg were on hand Monday night to present an exclusive clip from their new comedy.
Rounding out the cast are Jonah Hill and James Franco, who, like the rest of the cast, play themselves as the actors cope with life after horrific events plunge Los Angeles into an apocalyptic nightmare. How will the fictional version of these real-life friendships handle the strain of cabin fever, lack of food and other terrible tropes associated with disaster films? You'll have to check out "This Is The End" to find out.
Check out the clip, and be sure to watch the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday, April 14 at 9 p.m. ET!
When it comes to surviving an apocalypse, there are three keys every person should know. Number one: Stay calm. Number two: Always boil your water, because there's really no way of telling what kind of microbes and stuff might be in it. And most importantly of all, number three: Do not under any circumstances mess with Emma Watson.
Seth Rogen and James Franco are, like, total movie BFF's. First they collaborated on the stoner cult hit "Pineapple Express." And then they reunited for the upcoming apocalyptic comedy "This Is The End," which features the pair playing versions of themselves during the end of days. So what's next for these hetero life partners?
