Bryan Cranston & James Franco Go Head to Head in Why Him?

James Franco

Introducing the boyfriend to your parents is a pretty big deal. When your boyfriend is James Franco and your parents are Bryan Cranston and Megan Mullally, it’s a recipe for pure entertainment. Franco, Cranston, and Mullally star in Why Him? with Zoey Deutch, Adam Devine, Andrew Rannells, Keegan-Michael Key, and Casey Wilson.

Deutch plays a young woman who brings her parents to Christmas with her boyfriend who just so happens to be an internet mogul with a propensity for tacky tattoos and smoking pot. Franco’s charm as the daughter’s boyfriend quickly wins over everyone, but the dad (Cranston) who’s determined to break them up before he has an unwanted son-in-law.
