Artist Carter (no last name needed, like Prince and Christo) shot his first film Erased James Franco, at the Yvon Lambert Gallery in Paris. The film has Franco recreating his roles in past films like James Dean and Spiderman. "When performing the old scenes again, I had an experience like, 'Oh yeah, that's how I performed that scene, weird, maybe I wouldn't do it that way now.' But then I had Carter's restraint direction on top of it, so I was acting the scenes in a new way," says Franco. "This is my favorite performance of any that I have ever done."
