‘Fake’ James Franco invades TIFF

- September 10th, 2013

UPDATED

Remember how a few years ago at TIFF there was a Joaquin Phoenix imposter running around the fest tricking fans on the red carpet? Well, it seems that this year there is a ‘fake’ James Franco having a grand old time in Toronto.

Franco, who has three movies at the festival – Palo Alto, Child of God and Third Person – was in town Sunday and has since left the city, but that didn’t stop a phoney Franco from having some fun posing with fans. According to the New York Post’s page six, Palo Alto producer Vince ­Jolivette spotted the Franco doppelgänger and insisted he meet the real deal.

“Vince thought it was hysterical,” a source tells page six. “The fake James Franco was posing for photos with girls [who thought he was the real one]. He was walking around, talking to people, eating, drinking. He was the toast of the town.”

One woman posted a photo of herself posing with the fake Franco on Facebook saying she was “completely duped.”

And it turns out the ‘fake’ Franco met the real Franco at a party for the real McCoy’s Child of God.

‘Fake’ Franco was later revealed to be actor Thomas James Murphy.
