Roundup - Hilarity for Charity (aka his most unusual role yet?) and more  
James Franco's Bar Mitzvah for Hilarity for Charity

From E Online!:
The actor later told the audience the bar mitzvah couldn't continue unless Franco underwent a circumcision, which are typically performed on Jewish baby boys, by a rabbi.

A gurney was wheeled onstage and the actor got on it. Jeff Goldblum appeared onstage, dressed as a rabbi.

Franco was covered up by a curtain just as Rabbi Goldblum was about the perform the ritual, a pre-recorded video of Zac Efron was then screened. His role? The actor played Franco's "foreskin" and joked he has protected him for a long time…

"Tonight has been f--king eventful, I mean, Zac Efron as your f--kin' penis, foreskin, that's a famous dick you got there, we all knew that anyway!" Cyrus told the audience.

From Jewish Journal:
Actor Zac Efron played Franco’s about-to-be-severed foreskin, uttering its last words, which included, “While you have the mohel, why don't you have him cut away some of your eyelids so you can finally see?" referring to the star’s famously squinty smirk.

From Logo - New Now Next:
As the mock bar mitzvah for James Franco continues, Jeff Goldblum was called upon to do the circumcision. Thankfully, Franco’s foreskin was given a minute to speak before being ceremonially removed, and was voiced by Zac Efron in a pretaped message. The flap “requested to be buried in Bungalow 3 at the Chateau Marmont (notoriously known for the place where actor and comedian Josh [sic] Belushi was found dead after a drug overdose), but not before thanking the actor for always having his back when the ladies dubbed him gross, and bidding adieu to his testicular neighbors Gary and Bob.”

Except for the unsightly beard. Why don't they check with me before doing these things?

It's not a beard; its a shadow and its perfect.

I should add that Zac's lat spread is effing impressive. He could seriously win the lightweight category in a natural bodybuilding show. Wish I knew what he did for his lower lats. They're so hard to develop.

I'm going to write a story about a woman who falls in love with a wax statue and steals it from a museum, because that's what I would do if I had absolute power.

The raging question should be, is this figurine anatomically correct? You know what they say, Clothes make the man. But that's not really true, is it?

I already thought of that. I'll make it funny by having her reach down his pants and discover - much to her disappointment - that he's as castrated as a Ken Doll. Then I might do some magical realism (inspired by The Dresden Dolls' "Coin-Operated Boy") by having her find a coin slot in the back. She drops in a quarter and he comes alive. They dance around the living room and have tea parties and kiss, and then I'll make it tragic by revealing the truth of the situation: he'll return to the couch in the position he came in and become a wax statue once more. She will look for the coin slot and it will be gone, and then the audience will realize that it all happened in her head. And they will see it was just a fantasy because she is so sad and miserable and alone.

Fame can be so fleeting. Poor Zac, in less than two months his starring vehicle "We Are Your Friends" seems to have lost its historic standing as the worst-ever opening for a wide-release film from a major studio.

This weekend, "Rock the Kasbah" with Bill Murray managed to pull only $1.5 million in 2012 theaters, and "Jem and the Holograms" topped $1.5 million in 2413 theaters.

So, Zac's name is ripped from the Hollywood history books. I hope he's not too broken up about it.

Re: Sic Transit Gloria
I've been rooting all weekend since early Friday numbers came out that they would stay below WAYF's numbers and thankfully they did. Esp Jem since it had more theaters and was a major studio release too.

I'm pretty happy about that tbh. WAYF's box office is still terrible but at least it's not 2015's or all-time worst of its category anymore.

Re: Sic Transit Gloria
Oops. "Jem" pulled only $1.3 million, even worse than I stated.

Now we have to start worrying about "Dirty Grandpa." I don't think it will be as bad at the box office as WAYF, and Bill Murray is no Robert De Niro, but still, it would be nice if Zac's next film finished in the top five on opening weekend so he wouldn't have two embarrassing flops in a row. Just imagine how gleeful all the haters would be.
