Two drool-resulting words. Dave. Franco. But there’s MORE: The burgeoning actor’s exposing some major abdomen action (is that an outtie?! :-O) in a retro-ly rad spread for Complex’s February/March 2012 issue. Franco apparently addresses the whole “Living In His Brother’s Shadow” thing, but we didn’t bother reading that mess because the pictures say it ALL: Dave Franco has arrived, and FYI, he’s a smoldering/sizzling/sex-and-candy/etc. star that we’ll continue to wish upon every single night until we wake up canoodling underneath his bulging arms. *Shivers* We almost felt guilty about our Dave Franco shrine after he revealed his fear of “losing his anonymity” and “small freak-out moment every few months…” Until we flipped through more photos.

Dave is spilling (and unbuttoning it/almost crotch-grabbing) in full-on promo (and perfectly pouting) mode for 21 Jump Street, which he stars in alongside Hollywood heavyweights Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum (HAY!). In the aforementioned scrumptious spread, Dave totally gets his ’80s-ensconced The Outsiders steez on, rocking classic black Chucks, the ubiquitously hip denim-on-denim combo (rolled up pant cuff + denim vest = hipsters fainting), and a killer biker jacket. There’s even some leather cuff lovin’, which basically means all that’s missing is a PBR or three. But TB totes H(onest), what is UP with that hair situation? We LOVE a good disheveled caramel lock grunge-y look, especially when it involves a white bandana and you know, imagining running our fingers through Dave Franco’s hurr…but it’s kindaaa giving us janky discount wig vibes. You guys, you KNOW we love living in a wacky wig world (sup, Nicki?), so we’re just scratching under our synthetic bobs in slight confusion. Fill us in, y’all. Does the movie involve bad mullet wigs? Are we missing out on the joke? Does this mean we actually have to go see an, EEK, action-comedy to solve the hurr mystery? On second thought, Channing Tatum is all up in it, too so um… *Wipes drool, logs on Fandango.com*
