James Franco & Bryan Cranston’s “Why Him?” Trailer Released!

James Franco and Bryan Cranston are starring in a new comedy called Why Him? and the trailer has been released!

Over the holidays, Ned (Bryan Cranston), an overprotective but loving dad and his family visit his daughter at Stanford, where he meets his biggest nightmare: her well-meaning but socially awkward Silicon Valley billionaire boyfriend, Laird (James Franco). The straight-laced Ned thinks Laird, who has absolutely no filter, is a wildly inappropriate match for his daughter. The one-sided rivalry—and Ned’s panic level—escalate when he finds himself increasingly out of step in the glamorous high-tech hub, and learns that Laird is about to pop the question.

Directed by John Hamburg, the film is being produced by Shawn Levy, Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill and Dan Levine. Why Him? also stars Zoey Deutch, Adam Devine, Megan Mullally, and Keegan-Michael Key. It arrives in theaters on December 25, 2016!
