James FrancoThe NY Times unveiled a video preview of its Hollywood Issue today, in which 14 famous actors act out a number of interesting -- and slightly bizzare scenes.

Among the participating actors: Natalie Portman, who wears a Veronica Lake-esque blonde wig, Robert Duvall, who shaves before the camera, and James Franco, who makes out with his own reflection. (Who could blame him?)

The beautifully shot videos were directed by Solve Sundsbo, set to a score by Canadian composer Owen Pallett.
