James Franco

Biography: James is best known for his role on Freaks and Geeks.

James graduated from Palo Alto high school in 1996 and went on to attend UCLA, majoring in English Literature. To overcome his shyness, he got into acting and eventually dropped out after one year. After fifteen months of study at Robert Carnegie's Playhouse West, James began actively pursuing finding acting work. He quickly landed himself a starring role on Freaks and Geeks.

Although he'd been working steadily, it wasn't until the TNT made-for-television movie, James Dean that James became more recognized.
