WHAT IT'S ABOUT What a gadfly, this guy, James Franco. When he isn't busy cutting off his arm (Oscar-nominated for "127 Hours"), hosting the apocalypse (big-screen laugher "This Is the End"), trying to alter history (Hulu's recent "11.22.63"), or making performance art out of serial killing (his nutty "General Hospital" flyby), the peripatetic actor-filmmaker can be found satirizing pop culture online (his AOL mashup series "Making a Scene"; who could forget "Seinfeld M.D."?), publishing poetry ("Directing Herbert White"), or going back to school at NYU.
