James Franco and Seth Rogen have known each other since 1999, when they met on the set of the one-season cult-hit TV show Freaks and Geeks. Since then, they've made several films together. They've mocked Kim Kardashian and Kanye West together. They've appeared on SNL together. They've mocked Kim Kardashian and Kanye West together some more. And it was all peppered with at least a tinge of ironic(?) homoeroticism. It's pretty much the greatest Hollywood romance of the modern era. (Unless you wanna count James Franco and James Franco.)
So, it was probably just a matter of time before we got some James Franco original art work featuring a very naked Seth Rogen. Really, as soon as we saw that Franco had taken up oil painting, we should have known the clock was ticking for the arrival of these paintings:
Though we can probably assume that Rogen has struck these poses for Franco at least a few times in the past, he almost certainly did not pose for these particular paintings. They appear to be based on original drawings by Christopher Schulz, which you can see here and here.
