HeyUGuys Asks James Franco About Alien: Covenant

Chatting to James Franco and Brian Cranston about their upcoming comedy Why Him?, HeyUGuys took the opportunity to ask James Franco about the casting bombshell Alien vs. Predator Galaxy dropped earlier in the month.

“During our interview with James Franco and Bryan Cranston for Why Him?, our man James Kleinmann asked the actor to comment on rumours he’s been cast in Ridley Scott’s Alien sequel. Clearly his surprised reaction says quite a bit (and hints at a carefully worded NDA) but this is the first time Franco has commented on his casting. Also – having Bryan Cranston as a commentator on the question is a lot of fun.”

Franco is visibly surprised at the question and asks “the news is out, I guess?” and all but confirms that he will indeed be making an appearance as we recently reported. He is unable to talk about more but Franco does talk a little about watching Alien when he was younger.

    Hurly burly? Not heard that one before. I did warn folk that it wasn't going to be a massive thing but it did seem to get out of hand. lol

    I first heard it in Shakespeare's play, Macbeth, from the second witch: "When the hurly-burly's done, / When the battle's lost and won" (1.1.3-4).

    According to the OED:

    hurly-burly, n., adj., and adv.
    Pronunciation:  /ˈhəːlɪˈbəːli/

    A. n.

    a. Commotion, tumult, strife, uproar, turmoil, confusion. (Formerly a more dignified word than now.)

    So...  ;)


    And it's all your fault Corporal!

    You all ask me for more scoops and news and then make me feel bad when I give it.  :'(
    Well I appreciate the scoops. Wish their was twice as much.

    Y'know, I kinda wish that Bryan Cranston was making an appearance in this movie, rather than James Franco!  I hope Franco's role is minimal to be honest,

    Cranston even has a bit of a Ridley look going on here, don't you think?

    Seems like he knows a little bit about the setting and mood of the movie, but hopefully if he plays a bigger role it will transfer over into the film. Hopefully, Danny McBride too.

    Really wish he didn't just have one scene which is a video message.

    Dude... Spoiler tag?

    Sorry about that.

    Dude needs to learn how to put spoiler tags up. ::)

    I think he's got the point.
