James FrancoIn a world where everything's been done before, and all the great themes have been used up and turned into theme parks, there's a certain electric quality emanating from those who find a way to forge their own path.

James Franco started like anyone else -- partaking in random television and film gigs, which led him to a classic but doomed television series ('Freaks and Geeks'), time as a Hollywood icon in 'James Dean,' and his breakout, star-making work in 'Spider-Man.' But as the movie credits continued to pour in, he's been busy with everything from painting to a one-year stint on the soap opera 'General Hospital.'

And now the actor is looking to direct a new drug drama that he will adapt and possibly headline.
