He never seems to slow down, and James Franco was pleased to present his latest project “Child of God” at the Tribeca Grand Hotel in New York City last night (July 30).

The “Palo Alto” hunk smiled for the cameras and mingled with fellow attendees such as rumored love interest Lana Del Rey, who came to the event with Museum of Modern Art curator Klaus Biesenbach.

In addition to starring in the movie, Franco also wrote and directed “Child of God,” slated for limited release on Friday (August 1).

Per the synopsis, “A dispossessed, violent man's life is a disastrous attempt to exist outside the social order. Successively deprived of parents and homes and with few other ties, Ballard descends to the level of a cave dweller as he falls deeper into crime and degradation.”
