>James Franco/Allen Ginsberg


Regina Weinreich in the Huffington Post (via her arts blog Gossip Central) has it right, speaking of the zeitgeist, Allen is pretty ubiquitous at the moment. Who would have thought?, Allen at the Oscars!. Well, not Allen exactly, but James Franco, who so remarkably “has him down” in the film role and is co-hosting the Oscar ceremonies tonight. Here’s he and Jon Hamm talking about the (Howl) film last year at the Sundance Film Festival

Franco was, interestingly, interviewed, not only about this role, but also about his upcoming role as another great modernist poet, Hart Crane, this weekend in the LA Times.

There’s another interesting interview with Franco on line at The Jewish Chronicle

And regarding Howl, we really would be remiss if we didn’t alert you to this – ID’s interview with our very own Peter Hale
