James Franco calls Twitter "Dangerous"

After only a month and a half on Twitter, Oscar nominated actor James Franco is already calling it quits. According to Politico, the 127 Hours star recently stated that he believes that social media is dead. "Social media is over," he told Politico. "Still up there. Going down.

Actor turned writer Justin Theroux (Tropic Thunder) was the screenwriter responsible for last summer's hugely successful Iron Man 2, which went on to gross over $600 million worldwide.

Director Jon Favreau, who helmed both Iron Man and Iron Man 2, announced in December that he would not be returning to direct the third chapter of the series but would continue to executive produce The Avengers. Recently it was revealed that Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black would be taking over directing duties on the upcoming film and Drew Pearce, who also penned the proposed Marvel Studio's film Runaways, would be writing the script.

The show just finished airing it's second season in November and was created by McBride, and his The Foot First Way director Jody Hill. The second season ended with Kenny heading to Myrtle Beach for another chance to play minor league baseball and an attempt at getting back into the major leagues. Fans of the series were delighted when it was recently announced that the show would return for a third and final season on HBO.
