After graduation from school, David Franco attended the University of Southern California where he started to pursue a degree in Film and Psychology. Most likely he would have succeeded, but the actor in him chose to drop out of university and focus on his acting career. As an actor he made his debut in 2006, when life gave Dave an opportunity to portray a character in the TV show entitled “7th Heaven”. This performance was noted by the audience, and from that time Dave Franco started to appear in many others movies and TV shows. However, the first true recognition all around the world came to Dave in 2009, when he received one of the main roles in the American sitcom called “Scrubs”. Franco portrayed Cole Aaronson – a self-confident medical student, whose family paid a huge amount of money to secure his internship in Sacred Heart Hospital. He had an opportunity to play only in the last season, but by that time this TV show had become so amazingly popular that Dave’s popularity was also raised really quickly. Unfortunately, the 9th season of “Scrubs” was the last one and it didn’t become so beloved to audiences as all the previous ones, so Franco didn’t enjoy this role for very long.

David’s next  famous appearance was in 2011, when he was cast to play a role in the popular 3D comedy and horror film, the remake of Tom Holland’s movie with the same title – “Fright Night”. This movie received mostly positive reviews from critics all around the world and has made over $41 million worldwide. But that’s not all – in 2013 Dave Franco co-starred in the zombie romance movie called “Warm Bodies” and played Perry Kelvin.

Today France has also been chosen to play roles in movies which are going to be released in 2015. The actor is definitely going to appear in the upcoming comedy film “Business Trip”. The filming of this move began in mid-November 2013, and today this is one of Dave Franco’s main activities. In 2012 Franco with his brother James were ranked number 2 on the list of “the 50 most talented, intelligent, funny, and gorgeous Jewish men in the world” by Shalom Life. After this nomination Dave stated he wasn’t as proud of the adjectives “intelligent”, “talented” and “funny”, as he was of the word “Jewish”.

Quotes

#Quote
1To be honest, I was kind of a shy kid growing up.
2When I think of myself, I'm definitely... I'm not like a comedian.
3I think my first big purchase was actually for my mom. She had one of those '90s TVs in her living room that's like a 10x10 brick, so I purchased her a flatscreen for her living room.
4I'm a cat person.
5I just know that it's smart for my career to carve my own path and do my own thing.
6I can't say I was like a die-hard zombie fan, but I've definitely seen a few different zombie movies and TV shows.
7I'm a small shifty kind of guy.
8I'm not one of those people who are, like, always joking in person.
9At this point, I feel like I can allow myself to be goofy and take more risks, and even if I do fall on my face, I know it's not the end of the world and at least I tried to do something different.
10I don't just wanna be James Franco's little brother.
11I'm a tough critic on myself.
12As much as I love and respect my brother, I'm doing my best to distance myself from him and kind of show people that, even though we do look similar and have similar mannerisms, we are completely different.
13For example, for me, my brother helped me get a manager, which I don't take for granted. It's tough getting a manager, let alone one that actually cares about you and is smart. But from there, no one's going to cast me just because I'm James Franco's little brother.
14[observation, age 27, on playing teenage roles] Everyone always says, especially in the business, it's great to look a lot younger than you are for longevity's sake. But sometimes I just want to look my damn age and play a character my age. I don't want to play high school again.
