(USA Today)   If the casting of James Franco in the stage adaptation of "Of Mice and Men" didn't have John Steinbeck turning over in his grave, the addition of Leighton Meester should definitely put him on a nonstop rotation   (usatoday.com) divider line 28

Leighton Meester gives me a happy feeling in my pants.

Meh. She's actually a pretty decent actress.  The part doesn't require much, either.

Franco will do fine.  He's hated on FARK for some reason, but he's a damn good actor. He researches his roles pretty thoroughly.  He won't be stoner. Phish-follower George.  I bet he kills it.

He better kill it. The third act kind of hinges on it.

It'll be tough for him to top Gary Sinise or Burgess Meredith, though.

Wait...Roy? Roy from IT Crowd is playing Lennie?

Not sure how I feel about that.

/James Franco is an underrated actor. Yes I'm serious.
//I have no idea who Leighton Meester is but after seeing Apos' post, I'm open to further research.

He may be an absolute freak show as a person, but after watching 127 Hours, I have to admit he's got some skills.

He might have won the Oscar if the Academy didn't fawn over any actor that plays part of the Royal Family.

James Franco is a good serious actor when he wants to be, and if anyone has shown they can play a flirtatious manipulator it's Leighton Meester. I fail to see the problem.

I don't think he'll have any problems; the boxing coach from Rocky played it in the original film, and it was Gary Senise in the version they made me watch in high school.

/and no one can biatch about the adaption, cause Steinbeck did it himself.

Steinbeck can rot in hell for writing The Red Pony.

Yeah, I fail to see the issue with this. As for Fark, they hate him here because he actually does something with his life. Around Fark, they like their celebrities talented in a single field and dumb as a post.

He's playing George, not Lennie. So you've only served to make yourself look stupid.

Huh.  Looking at his filmography, he has done some really good stuff, and some stuff that wasn't that great.  I guess that makes him an okay actor?  Crappy, well that's just subjective talk from a person who really couldn't be sourced as a professional on the matter, so... yeah?  *jerking motion*

Not exactly a fan of Franco, but I have liked most of the stuff I have seen him in, supposedly he's a pretty nice guy, and I don't see a reason for all of the hate, beyond typical mindless jealousy.

It was required reading for lots of middle school kids in my day (jokingly referred to as "The Dead Pony").
