Danny McBride starring in Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant is an odd enough development, but now the comedian will have his long time movie bro alongside him in a supporting role.
According to AVP Galaxy, who have been on top of things for months now, say Franco will have a small part:
Alien vs. Predator Galaxy can exclusively reveal that James Franco will be making an appearance in Alien: Covenant.
Franco will be appearing in Alien: Covenant as Branson, the captain of the Covenant and husband of Katherine Waterson’ Daniels. Franco’s appearance in Alien: Covenant will only be brief, though. He appears in the first ten minutes or so of the film with later small appearances.
Who knows if the two will share any screen time. Maybe Seth Rogen or Jonah Hill will swing by the set as an extra.
Alien: Covenant opens May 19.
