CONFIRMED: James Franco returns for another TIFF (this time, to promote a film)

Also confirmed: this is not Franco’s best look (Image: TIFF)

This year, James Franco appears on TIFF screens as a gangster who rescues (or ruins?) the spring break of four female students, including Disney favourites Selena Gomez (who’s also coming to Toronto) and Vanessa Hudgens, in Spring Breakers. Questionable as this cinematic dalliance may be, Franco is, of course, a gentleman in real life: he was spotted last year charmingly buying a self-portrait from a giddy fangirl after coming to town to unveil an art installation with Gus Van Sant at the TIFF Bell Lightbox Atrium.
