After hosting last year’s Academy Awards, James Franco has been relatively missing from theaters with exception to a couple of limited released flicks. That’s all about to change in 2013. The 34-year-old actor has a slew of movies scheduled this year including two in the coming weeks- Oz the Great and Powerful and Spring Breakers. With such a heavy load of movies to promote, expect Franco to appear in numerous publications up until the clock strikes midnight on New Years Eve.
