Quick Hit

James Franco Is a Tech CEO Dating Bryan Cranston's Daughter In "Why Him?"

We're big fans of the filmmaker's choice in which magazine validates James Franco's status in Silicon Valley.

James Franco Is a Tech CEO Dating Bryan Cranston's Daughter In "Why Him?"

WHAT: The first trailer for Why Him?, a Meet The Parents-ish comedy with a tech CEO twist.

WHO: Directed by Meet The Parents writer John Hamburg, and stars James Franco, Bryan Cranston, and Megan Mullaly

WHY WE CARE: Is the clash between a father and potential future son-in-law fertile ground for a movie? Sure. Especially if the latter is a filter-less zillionaire. Do Bryan Cranston and James Franco seem to be having fun in a big studio comedy, untethered from the dramatic and experimental work they tend to favor of late, respectively? Indeed. Of course, it doesn't hurt that sharp-eyed viewers might happen to notice a certain magazine cameo about a minute in, which we can all agree seems enough to make this worth the price of admission alone, right?
