R.E.M. hearts Franco. Why else would they ask him to direct two of their music videos—"Blue" and "That Someone Is You?" In the latter, Franco stars, too, as a modern-day Danny Zuko in the final scene from Grease (with the role of Sandy very oddly being played by a giant cat head).
In "Blue," Franco directs the undirectable... and by that we mean Lindsay Lohan.
