He’s always up for a good time, and last night (April 16) James Franco cut loose at the opening night shindig for his Broadway revival of “Of Mice And Men.”

Joined by costar Chris O’Dowd, the “Spring Breakers” hunk smiled for the cameras outside the Plaza Hotel in Manhattan following a triumphant first run of the Steinbeck-based play.

And it sounds like James and his team are already killing it onstage, as Variety gushed, “Franco has the kind of storytelling voice that can make anyone believe in his dreams. Franco’s personal magnetism works perfectly for George, a charmer who quietly disarms the whole bunkhouse on the farm where he and Lennie find work.”

Furthermore, the Hollywood Reporter agreed, “Franco brings warmth and understated manliness to George in a performance that grows more assured as the play progresses.”
