James Franco gets lost.

And stumbles onto Dawn of the Planet Apes set.

The sequel to the first film Rise of the Planet of the Apes Franco's character makes a posthumous cameo. The appearance came from shots filmed during the first Planet of the Apes film. But Franco was unclear whether the director had asked his permission for the shot.

Maybe Franco should patent a teen girl locator app. The tag line could be"Hit on a 17 year old for instant location". The conclusion may be obvious but at least then Franco would know when he is in the jungle of Planet of the Apes rather than at the Ace Hotel sending selfies to 17 year olds. He could also just ask Seth Rogan.

The Planet of the Apes Franco siting came on the same day as his Broadway debut in Of Mice and Men which he stars in with Irish funny man Chris O'Dowd. Who was startlingly dark in one of the darkest of dark comedies Calvary. Off topic but if you are looking for a nice Catholic film over the Easter break.

Nas appreciates Robert De Niro.

Don't we all. According to the American rapper Robert De Niro is the business. And one who has played Nas or some variant of his Nas-ie character in his films. 'He Plays me in the movies', says Nas.

De Niro did not share in Nas' admiration telling reporters at the Tribeca Film Festival that he could not cite any of Nas' lyrics. Despite introducing the Nas documentary Time is Illmatic,which marks the 20th anniversary of the 1994 album that shot him to fame. Then shushing the reporter, to keep a secret.

De Niro should really watch the documentary and listen to Illmatic. Since he probably won't you should. Check the trailer.

If you're going to memorise one Nas line for good measure: "straight out the fuckin' dungeons of rap..." is classic.
