James Franco says Ricky Gervais bombed at the Golden Globes

In an E! News video interview, James Franco appears annoyed to learn that Ricky Gervais has penned a sample monologue for him and cohost Anne Hathaway to use on the 83rd Annual Academy Awards Sunday.
"He did his award show and he bombed. Why is he trying to get in on ours?" he tells reporter Jason Kennedy after Kennedy presents him with Gervais' jokes on camera.

"Horrible. His lines weren't good on the Golden Globes," Franco remarks as he reads some of Gervais' lines. "Why does he want to do our lines?"

Among Gervais' lines: He has Hathaway joking about being cast as Catwoman ("And I'm the new Catwoman. The first white woman to play that role since Michelle Pfeiffer. I want it to be an inspiration to all white people everywhere. Your dreams can come true in Hollywood too.")

:facepalm

Franco is a cool dude, but he doesn't know comedy. Gervais should spit in his face.

Franco is a little on the pretentious side. That Catwoman joke alone is funnier than anything he's written in a long time.

That joke is only funny if the camera zooms in on a black actor and if that black actor laughs, it allows everyone else to laugh. If the joke doesn't elicit laughter from the negro community, all the white people will snicker and boo.

That's pretty much 100% true.

There may have been a shocked and outraged tension at the venue (in front of the celebrities he was taking the piss out of) but thats what Gervais loves and thrives on. He was obviously having a brilliant time and thought it was hilarious, plenty of people who watched it did too. Just not much of Hollywood which is known for taking itself somewhat seriously

yep. i'm sure if the jokes Ricky had written were better than that sh*tty sample, Jimmy wouldn't have such a problem with the ghostwriting.

Ricky Gervais is hilarious, way more than Franco can even hope to be.

Yeah, Franco was strange as the host. He was just spaced out the whole time and seemed to genuinely not give a shit.

The irony is that if they had gone and got Ricky Gervais to host probably more young people, the demo they were supposedly trying to reach would have tuned in.
