LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “You better work” James Franco!
The actor – who is no stranger to LGBT (“Howl,” “Milk”) roles – is now appearing on the cover of Candy magazine’s Fall/Winter 2010-2011 issue decked out in drag.
The mag describes itself as “the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations.”
In October, the actor told The Advocate that he’s tired of playing typical straight roles on the big screen.
“In this history of cinema, there are so many heterosexual love stories,” he said at the time. “It’s so hammered, so done. It’s just not that interesting to me. It’s more interesting to me to play roles and relationships that haven’t been portrayed as often.”
Candy magazine’s Fall/Winter 2010-2011issue goes on sale on October 24 with only 1,000 copies available.
James will next be seen on the big screen in “127 Hours” as mountain climber Aron Ralston, who was forced to cut off his own arm after becoming trapped under a boulder. The Danny Boyle-directed movie hits theaters on November 5.
No word if James was asked to “lip-sync for your life” before landing the cover!
