Dave Franco attempts to distance himself from big brother James in latest GQ

gq-dave-franc.jpgWhile James Franco is a household name, his younger brother Dave Franco is still making his way up through the Hollywood ranks. This weekend, Dave appears in the "21 Jump Street" update alongside Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. He also appears on one of three current GQ covers, and the interview suggests that Dave is doing his best to distance his career from that of his older brother -- "one douchebag role at a time."

It's true that Dave has a knack for playing the not-so-smart, not-so-nice bully type. The type-casting isn't lost on him. "Oh man, I've stopped trying to analyze it, because it makes me upset," he says. "Once I was complaining about it to someone, and they said, 'It's because you have an a**hole face.' I was like, 'Um, thank you. Thank you very much.'"

He does have one thing in common with his bro, though -- they've both written poetry. While James seems to take it rather seriously (let's face it, James seems to take everything rather seriously), Dave's poetry was more of the teen-angst variety.

"My God, it was really pretentious sh**," he laughs. "I would write a poem out in the most simple terms, and then I would go through the thesaurus and find these elite replacements for them."

We may or may not be able to relate.
