So, it's always interesting to read his oh-so-arty articles published in various corners of the internet.
The latest one, on Art Practical, is an ode to our favoruite seedy, gun-filled movie, in which he plays the character of white, cornrowed gangster Alien.
Talking about his teen co-stars Ashley Benson and Selena Gomez, he references the two options for womanhood.
He describes them as, "glossy teens on the verge of womanhood, at that crucial point of transition when they become Miley Cyruses, or Jessica Albas, or nobodies."
Guys, which woman are you?
He further claims, "There will never be a movie or a character that is more important for this age. Spring Breakers' Alien is 2013."
As with so many things James Franco says and does, we can't work out if it's all a satirical joke at our expense.
What we do know, is it's a real treat.
He goes on to explain that, "Three hundred years from now, when people want to look back at dis time, they won't go to the Obama inauguration speech, dey will go to Spring Breakers."
What do you think? Just another strange joke, or is he headed the same way as Shia LaBeouf? Tweet us @handbagcom
