Howl - Another look at James Franco as Ginsberg

Entertainment Weekly are saying this is our first look at Franco in the role. However, there was a photo of him back in March which is actually the first look.

In Howl, the big-screen drama about poet Allen Ginsberg due out next year, James Franco (right, with costar Aaron Tveit) plays Ginsberg as ''an unsure young man who's trying to find his way,'' says the actor. Produced by Gus Van Sant, the movie revolves around the titular Ginsberg work from 1956 that turned him into a literary superstar. ''All his uncertainty culminates in the poem 'Howl' and gives birth to the Ginsberg we know,'' says Franco. ''The Beats were very important to me when I started reading literature more seriously in high school. They were some of the first writers that I read and fell in love with.''
