Dave for Mr Porter

If you’re one of those people, whose only newsfeed is social media, then you might conclude on reviewing the scant available evidence, that Mr Dave Franco is dating his Neighbors co-star Mr Zac Efron. He’s not. That’s just a rumour started by his older, more social media-savvy sibling, James, who posted a doctored HollywoodLife article showing a photo of the duo cosying up at a basketball game. Having said that, they did share a suspiciously authentic on-screen “bromance”.

Dig a little further and you might wind up at Funny or Die, the comedy site for which Mr Franco has created a handful of short movies. There’s the “You’re So Hot” trilogy, a series of spaghetti western-style showdowns in which he trades increasingly filthy sexual exchanges with Mr Christopher Mintz-Plasse before facing off in a game of what the Urban Dictionary refers to as “gay chicken”. Or the unsentimentally titled “Go F**k Yourself”, which employs a little camera trickery to show him doing… well, exactly that.

Scour the internet for long enough, and a slightly more holistic rendering emerges – one of a crass, funny and transgressive young comedian. But, while in person he can be all of these things, this is not the real Dave Franco. Unlike his brother, who helms a high-profile personal brand that seems as if it must take dozens of man-hours a week to maintain, Franco the Younger has gone out of his way to remain something of a man of mystery. It’s an aura that he might not be able to maintain for too much longer, though. Such as that favourite neighbourhood restaurant that only the insiders know about, he’s just one rave review away from blowing up.

Vote Zac Efron & Dave Franco For Best Duo!

Voting for the 2015 MTV Movie Awards has begun, and Dave and Neighbors co-star Zac Efron have been nominated for the ‘Best Duo’ category. Be sure to cast your vote today!

The recent holidays were an unusual time for Dave Franco. His older brother James, referred to by President Obama as “James Flacco,” was at the center of the The Interview crisis, where hackers, reportedly working for North Korea, followed their invasion on Sony’s privacy by making terror threats on movie theaters. “It was terrifying,” says Dave Franco during our own, far less drastic interview.

“It was an extremely bizarre, scary situation. I tend to get a little paranoid in those situations. Because I’m in the same vicinity as my brother, I’m thinking there’s a fifty percent chance I’m gonna get killed this Christmas.”

While the threat proved empty, as many suspected, it did manage to put a damper on the holidays for families like that of Franco’s, who typically spend the holidays watching at least one movie a day.

“We didn’t feel safe enough to go to the theater,” Franco admits. “So we missed out on what’s typically a very joyous family tradition. Everything was so blown out of proportion through the media that you can’t help but get caught up on it a little bit. I was taking cues from my brother, seeing how seriously he was taking it and how threatened he actually felt. He seemed pretty composed throughout and so that definitely eased my mind to an extent.”
