James Franco arrived in Cincinnati, OH over the weekend to begin work on two films, Goat, which he is producing, and The Long Home, which he is starring in and directing.
The Long Home also stars Josh Hutcherson as a contractor hired to build a honky-tonk in Tennessee by the man who killed his father.
Based on a memoir, Goat follows a 19-year-old who, along with his brother, joins a fraternity and is ritualistically hazed. The movie stars Nick Jonas, who attracted quite a crowd on Monday while filming on Nieman Drive in Finneytown. According to one of our tipsters, Jonas was spotted filming in Sharonville, OH today, too.
