The Stellar Taste of James Franco

You might maybe recall that James Franco is currently adapting William Faulkner's book As I Lay Dying into movie-form. We already knew it is set to star Franco himself alongside Danny McBride, Logan Marshall Green, and others... well now there's word that our beloved character actress to end all character actresses Beth Grant has joined the cast! I've never read AILD so I couldn't even begin to tell you what role she could be playing; hopefully she's the one that stumbles upon Franco and Green having torrid relations on the lanai. That's what Faulkner wrote about, right?

Sadly, I have read As I Lay Dying and as much as I hate it (Shut up Faulkner and suck on your Southern Gothic tales of Woe)I think Beth Grant will probably be the mother who is dead and whose body they are trying to lay to rest back in her home land/territory/whatever you want to call it. As much as I hated the book, I think this is pretty brilliant casting, if that's what they are doing.

I totally agree with Bloody Munchkin. The dead mother does have a few things to say, though, so she'll at least have a few lines.
