Gary Shteyngart’s Book Trailer Offers Laughs, Writers, James Franco

super sad love Gary Shteyngarts Book Trailer Offers Laughs, Writers, James FrancoWe stand by our assertion that the brief internet video clip is James Franco’s finest medium!

His most recent work: the trailer for Gary Shteyngart’s Super Sad True Love Story, in which he appears alongside such notables as Mary Gaitskill and Jeffrey Eugenides. He portrays a student (no prob there!) in Shteyngart’s seminar at Columbia.

“I actually haven’t read his new book–Sad… True… whatever,” says Franco. “But you know, I don’t think he actually wants me to read it. I don’t think reading is his thing.”

Stay tuned for the end, when Jay McInerney shows up with a bottle of wine to help Shteyngart out with the ladies.
