James Franco’s Many Roles (PHOTOS)

The interesting careers of James Franco
What makes James Franco so easy to love?

Is it his ability to shift from gripping roles like 127 Hours to the high comedy of Date Night with ease? Or is that he seems to play by his own rules and doesn’t mind showing up on General Hospital every now and again?

Celebuzz is taking a look roles that have helped defined Franco’s career to date — and made us eager for his slate of movies coming down the pipe in 2013.

This March, the 34-year-old will take on the titular role in Sam Raimi’s new film, Oz The Great and Powerful — a completely re-imagined look at one of the most classic stories of all time. Franco will star alongside Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Mila Kunis in the movie.
