Dave Franco & Abbi Jacobson Make Drama Debuts with '6 Balloons' at SXSW 2018!

Dave Franco is dapper as he poses alongside co-star Abbi Jacobson while attending the premiere of their latest film 6 Balloons held during the 2018 SXSW Festival at ZACH Theatre on Monday (March 12) in Austin, Texas.

The 32-year-old actor and Abbi, 34, were joined at the event by the film’s screenwriter and director Marja-Lewis Ryan, and SXSW senior programmer Jarod Neece.

Based on the personal story of producer Samantha Housman, the film follows a woman (Jacobson) whose brother (Franco) relapses on heroin, while living with his six-month-old daughter.

“I loved the different points of view that were addressed, and this is my first experience in this genre,” Abbi expressed about the film (via Deadline). “I was excited that Dave was gonna be my partner in it because this was new for both of us. We kind of could lean on each other.”

“I knew that I was very lucky that [Ryan] even considered me for a role like this because I had never done anything like this,” Dave added. “I figured worst-case scenario, it just disappears; best-case scenario, it shows me in a slightly different light, and people can maybe start to see me in different roles.”

FYI: Dave is wearing a Sandro suit.
