James Franco is Shirtless & Tatted Up in 'Why Him?' Trailer

James Franco shows off his ripped body while going shirtless in the trailer for the new movie Why Him?

The 38-year-old actor is seen all tatted up while starring alongside Zoey Deutch and Bryan Cranston in the upcoming comedy.

Here is the synopsis: Over the holidays, Ned (Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter (Deutch) at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.
