Danny McBride: James Franco is Like Superman

Danny McBride: James Franco is Like Superman

Natalie Portman draws her bow and arrow in this still from her new movie, Your Highness.

The film, out April 8, pays homage to fantasy films of the past, but Danny McBride, who stars and co-wrote the pic, insists that the intent was to honor pictures of the past.

“We didn’t want to make fun of them,” Danny told USA Today. “We really tried to make one of these films.”

As for the all-star cast of Natalie Portman, James Franco and Zooey Deschanel, director David Gordon Green “felt it was important to not fill the movie with comedians” but that he was impressed with the cast’s skills.

James is insane,” Danny said. “He is good at everything. He really is like Superman.”

    I agree that James Franco is pretty awesome but Danny McBride is like Superman. He’s responsible for the funniest show on tv, Eastbound and Down. It’s comic genius.
