Hang with James Franco in San Francisco

James Franco is on stage Oct. 27 at the Castro Theatre.

Did you enjoy Freaks and Geeks, but have issue with "Oz"? Time to tell James Franco to his face.

The Peninsula-bred actor, director, producer, writer, student and all-around busier-than-you-guy -- whose experiences growing up in Palo Alto led to his 2010 book, "Palo Alto" -- will mix with the public prior to his appearance at the Castro Theatre a week from Sunday, 7X7 notes.

Franco is a man of many movies but also, increasingly, books -- and his new tome combines the two. He's on-scene on Sunday, Oct. 27, to talk about Actors Anonymous: "his first full-length novel about being inducted into Hollywood's celebrity circle," as the magazine describes it.

Franco will answer questions about his turn as the self-amputating mountain climber Aron Ralston in "127 Hours," as well as teaching filmmaking at NYU and USC.

He'll also answer them from you -- provided you nab a premium ticket, prices for which range from $75 to $95.

"Consider this event," says the magazine, which also recommends you read "at least a few passages" of Franco's book before trying to talk to him about it, "our very own live version of Inside the Actor's Studio."

Actor's, director's, writer's -- Franco's.
