James Franco Plays Gay (Again) In Wild Horses

wild-horses-movie-trailer

Anyone else starting to lose count on how many times James Franco has played a gay character on film? I have and I’m sure there are plenty more homosexual parts in his future.

It’s never my intention to push anyone to come out, but can he just get it over with already. We all know one day it’s going to happen 😉

For his latest role, the 37-year-old plays the estranged gay son of Robert Duvall’s character in the crime film, Wild Horses. The movie which premiered at South by Southwest was written and directed by Duvall and also stars his wife, Luciana.

Rounding out the cast are Josh Hartnett, Adriana Barraza and True Blood’s Jim Parrack. Wild Horses rides into select theaters and on VOD on June 5, 2015. Check out the trailer below.

Movie Synopsis

Texas Ranger Samantha Payne (Luciana Duvall) reopens a 15-year-old Missing Persons case, uncovering clues linking a local boy’s death to wealthy family man, Scott Briggs (Robert Duvall). Samantha will stop at nothing to discover the truth even if it means risking her own life.

With the unexpected return of his estranged son Ben (James Franco), Briggs must find a way to either silence the law for good, or come to terms with the relationship between Ben and the boy that he tried to conceal all those years ago.

    Um, while Franco has repeatedly been coy about his sexuality he has stated that he has never had a same sex experience outside of film roles, yet. I find that pretty indicative of his sexuality. Demanding that someone should come out because you’re frustrated of the coy attitude strikes me as just wrong. Franco is playing with all those that expect each and everyone declare their sexuality, which is a fair point.
