James Franco's Cruising may mark a significant leap ahead in just how far its star is looking to push the envelope. http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/
While he seems to have a serious and vested interest in gay culture, Queerty asks if he is trying to "champion an underrepresented facet of society or just cashing in on his appeal."
Mathews' experience on "James Franco's Cruising" left him feeling inspired. "We didn't have the luxury or the curse of all this time. No time to worry or ruminate, just enough time to do the minimal amount of planning to make sure it all happened. It was great for me to see that I worked well under those conditions. I love that blurry space between something that's staged and has a certain level of scripting and direction. It made me want to revisit a bunch of different projects that I had thought of and reimagine them in a way that would be less of an arduous pre-production/production process."
