James Franco’s new band Daddy sign record deal


The multi-talented James Franco has just landed a record deal with label Kobalt for his band, Daddy.

The actor/writer/producer/painter/entrepreneur continues to extend his impressive resume with a concept album inspired by The Smiths.

The album, ‘Let Me Get What I Want’, will feature original Smiths bassist Andy Rourke on every track – along with some of Franco’s original poetry.

While making music, Franco has also been working on a film that depicts the grisly murder of gay porn mogul Bryan Kocis – starring himself, Christian Slater and Molly Ringwald.

‘Clueless’ star Alicia Silverstone has also reportedly signed on to portray Brent Corrigan’s mother.

Check out Daddy’s take on ‘This Charming Man’ below.
