In the HBO series premiere of The Deuce, we get to see James Franco’s naked butt.
Exclamation points all around!
What’s even more exciting, however, is that he plays twins. So we’re hoping to see both characters nude at some point. After all, it would totally be like James Franco to have different gluteal structure to distinguish each persona, right?
But beyond our pervy exploits of seeing glimpses of hot Hollywood superstars’ fleshy bits, this gritty new show about the legalization and rise of the pornography industry in Times Square captures the era in remarkable ways.
Set from the early 1970s through the mid-1980s, the series shows the dirty, seedy, dangerous side of New York City that many of us are too young to have experienced first-hand. And it’s remarkable how the show’s creators (from The Wire, by the way) recreated the time period so painstakingly, from the costumes to the streets themselves. Not sure how much is digital trickery and how much is elaborate set construction, but it’s pretty awesome.
Or as we now call it, HBO JAMES FRANCO’S BUTT NOW.
