James Franco to play Jeff Buckley in the new film, Mystery White Boy

Has anyone else noticed how much James Franco resembles the late Jeff Buckley? It’s not just looks I’m talking about. How about their background? They both grew up swallowed by their father’s shadows, were bullied in their Californian schools, and had intense personalities that precariously balanced goofiness with intense melancholy. It’s no wonder Franco was chosen for the lead role in Mystery White Boy. I can’t wait till it comes out.
