James Franco Trucks Through LAX, Will Play Photographer Robert Mapplethorpe [PHOTOS]

January 13th, 2012 // 1 Comment

Sporting facial hair that made him look a bit like Jason Ritter and a trucker hat, James Franco landed at LAX yesterday (January 12th) with some friends. 

The Hollywood Reporter just confirmed that Franco will play controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe in a film that will receive grants through the Tribeca Film Institute’s 9th Annual Tribeca All Access Program.  Mapplethorpe, who passed away in 1989 from AIDS, defied censors of his work.
