Well, he certainly doesn’t look much like a kid.
On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that it has obtained a copy of an image of an unidentified “white male” who appears as if he is about to appear in the latest James Franco movie “The Disaster Artist.”
The image appears to be a rendering from a computer’s rendering program showing the actor, who plays the role of computer-generated character John McClane, with his arm around a woman. Another man also appears, the Post wrote, wearing what appear to be boxing shoes and holding a baseball bat.
The Post noted that a portion of the “man in black,” or “labor” in computer rendering lingo, appears near the woman.
According to “The Disaster Artist,” which is released on May 19, the “labor” apparently helps a character named David (played by David Hasselhoff) find information needed to prepare for the end of the universe.
In a post on Twitter, Franco told the Post that the “labor” in question is actually the result of some sort of computer-generated character he and his team worked on.
I just wanna make clear that the ‘labor’ that’s depicted in these images is in no way an image of an actor in my character in THE DEATH OF LANCE LEWIS, or anything near it (even more than you might suspect), just a projection of what my computer made based on what I did for the film. As to the other images, they are computer renderings of the look of some people in different situations, either as John McClane or other actors, or as people in different places at the same time or in certain situations.
In a subsequent tweet, Franco told his followers that the post was “not a lie.”
He later stated the following:
I wanted to clarify that I never said or implied that my character was in any way in the film or that it was the “real” McClane. I said that this was the “labor” of the film, and that this was an aspect of the project that I’d like people to know about. — James Franco (@JamesFranco) May 24, 2014
In a tweet on Saturday, Franco posted a lengthy statement.
“I don’t really know why people have interpreted this tweet as a lie,” he wrote. “I mean, I just read it, and it was just a really random picture. It
