James Franco explained his new book, Actors Anonymous, on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night. Some of the chapters are lists of statements:

- I was alive when Shakespeare wrote all that crap.

- I am all actors.

- When they get older some actors that were once respected become clowns.

- Quentin’s best films are Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. They had heart and soul. His new movies are fantasies. He’s an authority on the LA underworld and B movies. Somewhere along the way his characters became their dialogue and lost some of their heart.

“Now, is that true?” Kimmel asked.

“I wouldn’t say that’s, like, fully me, but — I mean, I loved Django,” Franco tap-danced.
