If I had to guess which male celebrity has appeared in the most fashion editorials in recent memory, I would probably pick Dave Franco. It seems like the 27-year-old actor consistently pops up in publication after another. His latest finds him heading down under for GQ Australia.

Photographed by David Slijper, Franco sports a colorful array of fashionable nerdy outfits. I wonder if big bro’s short-lived show, Freaks and Geeks, served as inspiration for the spread? Is it me, or does this whole hipster geek chic really work for him. The things I would do to him in that bowtie ;)

If you think this nerd thing is just an act, you have to read the accompanying interview. Franco delivers an eulogy for a dead gecko then flushes him down the toilet with magazine staff witnessing the whole thing. Check out the photos below.

If you want to know more about the gecko incident, head over to GQ Australia. Franco can next be seen in Now You See Me with Jesse Eisenberg and Mark Ruffalo on May 31, 2013.
