Today’s Interview: James Franco, of “Oz” and Alien (“Spring Breakers”)


He’s a hard dude to draw a bead on, this James Franco. He’ll be dismissed for years, then pull a performance in “Milk” or “127 Hours” out and make you go, “What?”

He took at a dive at the Oscars, and then Anne Hathaway comes back to win an Oscar and Franco is starring in the biggest hit of the new year (“Oz, the Great and Powerful”).

And the noise just gets louder with “Spring Breakers,” the controversial Harmony Korine tragi-comedy about Spring Break with Franco as the would-be rapper, really-is- gangster “Alien.” The heat around this movie is intense. Will the box office match it? Are the kids coming to see it when it hits Friday?
