James Franco is coming back for round two of The Deuce. Franco plays the pair of twin brothers at the center of George Pelecanos and David Simon’s grimy HBO series exploring the early years of the porn industry in 1970s New York City.

Franco’s return for the second season of the drama series had been called into question after allegations of the actor’s sexual misconduct surfaced, and House of Cards star Kevin Spacey was replaced for similar allegations. However, HBO has confirmed that Franco will reprise his dual roles.

HBO airplane edit

When you watch a movie on an airplane, you’re not going to get the best quality version of the film. Airplane edits tend to remove scenes and squish the frame down into a letterbox-like format. This might all make sense for a flight, but when you sit down to watch a movie at home, you’d expect a higher level of quality. Yet HBO appears to be airing airplane edits of certain films for some inexplicable reason, and directors Jordan Vogt-Roberts and Peter Atencio aren’t happy about it.

Police corruption, prostitution, twins, and lots and lots of nudity. Yep, sounds like HBO.

It’s a wonder that the cable network, known for its salacious prestige dramas, had not tackled the porn industry before. But it seems like it took The Wire creator David Simon, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and James Franco playing twins for HBO to turn its lens toward the rise of the porn industry in the 1970s with The Deuce.

James Franco seems to be continuing the trend of Hollywood actors making a splash on the small screen by playing double with his role as two brothers in The Deuce, HBO’s upcoming TV series from The Wire and Treme creator David Simon.

Franco is joined by Academy Award nominee Maggie Gyllenhaal in the prestige drama series about possibly one of the least prestigious (but oh so tantalizing) topics: the porn industry. Deuce chronicles the rise of the porn industry in 1970s New York and how the famous porn film Deep Throat came to be.

The Deuce sounds like a dare gone horribly right. Here is a television series created by the great David Simon of The Wire fame, starring the never-not-fascinating James Franco, and set in the in the New York City porn scene during the ’70s. It’s like HBO said to Simon “Go ahead and pitch us anything!” and he called their bluff.

Because the TV gods are apparently real, The Deuce has been given a series order by HBO, which means this strange combination of talent and subject matter will eventually be something you can witness with your own two eyes.
