Watch: James Franco talks books with author of “The Hours”

James Franco as Alan Ginsburg from the movie "Howl."

James Franco, when will you stop? Never, I hope.

The increasingly Renaissance Man-like celebrity is featured in a new YouTube video plainly titled "Michael Cunningham and James Franco Meet." The two men sit in chairs and discuss literature, Franco's MFA application, and Cunningham's older works. This five-minute long meeting is in fact a promotion for Cunningham's upcoming novel By Nightfall, which, in Franco's words, is about "beauty."

Speaking of beauty: James Franco!
