James Franco contains multitudes. He has been nominated for an Oscar, stars in goofy movies like the upcoming celebrities-face-the-apocalypse comedy "This is the End," has twice played a gay poet in a period biopic, gone to graduate school, gotten a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, published a poetry chapbook, directed a film that will play at Cannes and much, much more. With this week's news that he's planning to adapt, direct and star in yet another film made from a book, it was time to try to tally up exactly how many movie-and-book projects he's tackled.
