James Franco Reveals Untold Story Behind Lindsay Lohan R.E.M. Video

Multifaceted artist reveals to MTV News the story behind his 'Blue' project starring Lohan.

Last week, MTV News debuted James Franco’s latest musical endeavor, a video for the song “Can’t Say Goodbye” from his collaborative EP with fellow artist Terry O’Keefe. But that endeavor doesn’t mark Franco’s only recent musical pursuit. Just last month, a video for R.E.M.’s “Blue,” helmed by Franco, seemed to drop out of nowhere onto the Internet.

Featuring Lindsay Lohan and moody scenes of Los Angeles, the video’s origins were revealed to us by Franco in an exclusive interview. The actor revealed how and why Lohan came to be a part of it, how his infamous Oscar hosting gig factored in, and he even gave us a quick update on the “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” sequel.
