We love Dave Franco here at POTP, so we’re thrilled to see James’ younger brother hooking up with Mad Men and Community hottie, Alison Brie.
Dave and Alison were spotted holding hands while grocery shopping in LA over the weekend. There’s no word on how long the up-and-coming actors have been gettin’ down, but the two reportedly looked very comfortable with each other, kissing and canoodling while walking the aisles at Whole Foods.
Alison does double duty on two of television’s most critically-acclaimed shows and Dave recently starred in 21 Jump Street, and is set two appear in two more films this summer. Sounds like a new power couple in the making!

Sexiness like this turns me into a stalker, a horny chick on a mission who can not be stopped! Dave Franco is beautiful and he needs to put some of his sexiness away. This just ain’t right. James Franco’s brother is featured in GQ UK, photographed by Terry Richardson.
Right above Dave’s picture is the caption: “Dave Franco proves you can’t beat a good pair of genes.” I couldn’t agree more! He’s currently filming a movie and he has another movie that’s scheduled to be released next year… He needs to be cast on a TV show. I need a weekly dose of that face! We’re both in love.

Dave Franco could have picked out a stage name to go by, but when you strongly resemble the person that you’re trying to distance yourself from, it doesn’t make any sense! David Franco held onto his real name and he aspires to make it in Hollywood on his own merits. There are advantages and disadvantages to being the younger sibling of an Oscar nominated actor.
Dave had an interesting, lengthy Q&A with the Huffington Post where he explained that he understands what it means to be James Franco’s sibling.
On how being James’ brother helps: He helped me get a manager, which I don’t take for granted. It’s tough to get representation, let alone really good representation that cares about you. But from there on out, no one is going to hire me just because I’m James Franco’s little brother.
On how it hurts to have an A-list sibling: I think the way it hurt was when I was first starting out, I was like another new actor who didn’t really know what he was doing. Because of my last name, people were paying more attention to me and were actually remembering that I was so horrible. Rather than these other kids who did poorly in an audition, but the casting director never remembers them…So that was tough.
On high expectations: People had certain expectations of me. This is a business that you’re more likely not going to succeed in, and I think people almost expected me to succeed — which was another added pressure. So, I don’t know, it’s definitely been tough. As much as I love and respect my brother, I’m doing my best to distance myself from him and kind of show people that, even though we do look similar and have similar mannerisms, we are completely different.
When asked if he thinks his role in 21 Jump Street will help him to establish himself, he said “I hope so. I hope so.” We do too!

You know a guy has to be sexsay in order to take me outta Because He’s Hot retirement, and Dave Franco is just that. Dave stars in 21 Jump Street (which is HILARIOUS, btw) alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Dave plays a drug dealer named Eric in the movie and his hotness was one of the most entertaining features of the film. In summary, dude had me excited the entire movie and I want to do awful things to him for a week straight.
Dave, 26, is James Franco’s younger, and arguably hotter, brother. Dave isn’t even on the tall side, but it didn’t matter. His smile is perfect. His eyebrows are hot, and I usually don’t care or pay attention to a guy’s eyebrows. It’s that serious! Like his brother, there’s something exotic about his look. Dave is part Portugese, Swedish and Jewish, which explains it. I don’t really know how to describe why Dave deserves to be a “Because He’s Hot” guy in great detail, but I plan on watching 21 Jump Street again in order to find out. *Grabs towel and a tall glass of water.
