I first became aware of James Franco when watching the brilliant television series, Freaks and Geeks.  Since then his acting career has taken off, landing the big role as Harry Osborn in the Spider-Man franchise, and in Pineapple Express.  According to Deadline, Franco is in talks to play a crucial figure in the rise of the walking and talking ape man in Rise of the Apes, the prequel to the Tim Burton Planet of the Apes.

Production begins July 5, 2010, with the film expected to hit theaters in June 2011.
