Biography

Dave Franco isn't a jerk -- he just played one on "Scrubs" (NBC, 2001-2010); and in the popular remake of "21 Jump Street" (2012); and in his Funny or Die videos with "Superbad" co-star Christopher Mintz-Plasse and brother James Franco. His snarky cool and sarcastic wit were also on display in his roles as a whipsmart teen on "Privileged" (The CW, 2008-09) and a Muppet-obsessed frat boy on "Greek" (ABC Family, 2007-2011), as well as his work as a writer and director on numerous videos for the Internet comedy site Funny or Die (his infamous "Go F*ck Yourself" video is particularly popular). Franco may not share his brother's sense of meta-theatricality, but his ambition and creativity are definitely a family trait.
