Dave is the Cosmo Guy in the July 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan. You can read the interview below and check out the scan in the gallery.

With back-to-back roles in Neighbors and 22 Jump Street, the Funny or Die regular (and James’s lil’ bro) is the man.

Your part in 22 Jump Street is pretty unforgettable …
Yes. I can confidently say that it’s the weirdest thing I’ve ever done on film — and I’ve done a lot of strange things.

Your Funny or Die videos are a riot. What cracks you up? 
Christopher Mintz-Plasse — no one makes me laugh harder than he does. Also, my two enormous cats. They are 17-pound tabbies who love to spoon. There’s a lot of cat incest going on in my house.

If you were on Tinder, what would your tagline be? 
“I go to sleep every night with 34 pounds of cat on top of me.” That would probably scare off 90 percent of the Tinder community, but for the 10 percent that embraces it, I’ve got nothing to hide from there.

Would you ever date one of James’s exes? 
No. It’s a lose-lose situation. Either I’m dating the girl he used to date and it ends up horrible, or it ends up great, we get married, and then have awkwardness for the rest of our lives when James is around.

Can we talk about dick pics — have you ever sent one?
I don’t think I’ve ever sent a full-on dick pic. Maybe a bulge pic? Like pressing up against those jeans. But never a full-skin, graphic, close-up dick pic. I don’t think any girl wants to see that! Bulge pics are the new black.

@AndreaKCC: What are your guilty pleasures?
I recently got into The Voice. But I only like watching the first couple of rounds, when all the power is in the judges’ hands. It feels like once the vote is in America’s hands, it’s more of a popularity contest.

Revenge is a dish best served moist. The final chapter in the epic “You’re So Hot” trilogy starring Dave Franco & Christopher Mintz-Plasse

Sony Pictures has nabbed the rights to The Intern’s Handbook: A Thriller with plans to turn the project into a vehicle for actor Dave Franco.

Oren Uziel, who worked on Sony’s upcoming 22 Jump Street, in which Franco appears, is on board to write the script based on a novel by Shane Kuhn.

Neal Moritz and Ori Marmur of Original Film — the company behind the Jump Street movies — will produce along with Circle of Confusion’s Brad Mendelsohn and David Alpert.

The idea behind Intern’s Handbook is thus: There’s a company called HR, Inc., an intern placement agency that is actually a front for a network of assassins whose targets are high-profile corporate executives. The best of the best in this world is John Lago, who can get coffee and make copies like no one else while stealthily ratcheting up a body count.

The story tells of Lago’s stint in a Manhattan law firm, where he’s working as a temp while gathering intelligence for his hit. He then meets his toughest adversary yet: a female FBI agent who is also assigned to take down the same target.

Bullets and sparks fly.

The well-reviewed dark comedy hit shelves April 8, 2014 from Simon & Schuster as part of a planned trilogy. Sony is looking at Intern’s Handbook as a potential franchise.

The acquisition, said to be in the high-six figures, marks a step up for Franco, who has so far not toplined his own movie but has done strong supporting work that has earned him a following.

The actor, who is repped by CAA, is currently sharing scenes with Zac Efron and Seth Rogen in Universal’s surprise hit comedy Neighbors. Among his other credits are both Jump Street movies, Warm Bodies and Now You See Me.

“We really feel like he’s the next star,” said Moritz. “We just think he has immense talent as a leading man and he’s someone who can do humor. He’s paid his dues. He’ s built a great resume of co-starring roles and he’s ready to be a lead. He’s not some guy being plucked from nowhere and told he’s the next big thing.”

Moritz says the producers see Intern’s Handbook as “a franchise made for a price with new emerging talent.”

The producer also described the book as having a “great attitude. It’s a look at what it’s like to be an intern, but in reality you’re so much more. The mantra is that interns are invisible, which makes them so good as assassins. No one sees them coming.”

I’ve added two portraits of Dave taken back in 2011. It’s unknown if it was for a magazine or if it was just a photoshoot he did but nonetheless, he looks super handsome!

Dave Franco is tired of being referred to as “James Franco’s little brother.” Therefore, he’s making a name for himself in the acting world.

His new movie Neighbors hit theaters this past weekend and he has a slew of other acting credits set to be released in the next year. While on the promotional train for his flick, Franco called into The Tommy Show and it didn’t take long for Tommy to tell him exactly how he felt.

“I’m kind of over your brother,” Tommy said to the actor as he sounded off his appreciation for the comment. “I love and respect my brother so much but I don’t want to be known as James Franco’s little brother my whole life.”

As a way to get to know the younger Franco, Tommy asked him to give three facts that most people wouldn’t know about him.

“I weirdly love playing frisbee, my favorite movie of all time is ‘Stand By Me’ and more days than not I’m listening to Otis Redding on vinyl,” he admits, trying to rack his brain while on the spot.

His new movie Neighbors is in theaters now and stars Zac Efron and Seth Rogen.
