5. This Is The End

This is the End

This is the End gave James Franco the opportunity to play a very different version of himself, while simultaneously making fun of some of the claims which have been made about him over the years. Set in Franco’s mansion (which was packed with bizarre portraits of himself) at a party full of celebrities, this version of the actor was a complete tool. That is what made him so fun to watch in the post apocalyptic movie – the party comes to an abrupt end due to the rapture taking place and demons invading the Earth – and Franco stole the show as this exaggerated version of himself.

It’s always fun to see actors make fun of themselves in movies or TV shows like this, but Franco was a stand out throughout. The “jizz” scene with Danny McBride was particularly hilarious, as was seeing the ego-maniacal actor obsess over the damage that the apocalypse had done to his house. While this obviously isn’t the type of performance which is going to garner awards or acclaim, it deserves a place here simply for how much fun the actor was clearly having and the tongue in cheek jokes about the real-life speculation about Franco’s sexuality alone make it worth watching.
