SEE IT: Exclusive first look at James Franco's 'Making a Scene'
James Franco has pushed up the season three premiere of “Making a Scene” from Monday to – right now!
We’re told that INE Entertainment and the Blackpills streaming platform had planned to release the Emmy nominated show’s season three premiere next week. But after seeing the very, very gay storyline of an episode that was slated to run on July 4, they decided to fast track that 11 minute bit with hopes of piggybacking onto the hype connected to Sunday’s Gay Pride parade. The episode that was to have been the show’s season three premiere will still run on Monday as scheduled.
“Making a Scene” is a largely improvisational program where Franco and a cast of creatives pitch ideas, then shoot a short film around whatever they cook up. In the brand new episode “Famous Potter,” which is slated to post on BlackPills.com at 9 a.m. on Friday, Franco’s team films their take on a “Harry Potter” film, which is merged with a reinterpretation of the Kanye West video “Famous.”
The film starts with characters from the popular Harry Potter films taking turns revealing that they’re gay and having a big celebration. But their fun is quickly interrupted by “Voldetrump” — a rapping Donald Trump character — and his Mike Pence inspired sidekick, played by gossip blogger Perez Hilton. While the President calls the Potter characters “gay losers,” the Vice President character attempts to perform sex acts on his boss. That’s followed by Voldetrump breaking into his rendition of “Famous.”

In the original tune, West infamously raps “For all my Southside niggas that know me best I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex. Why? I made that b—h famous.” But in Franco’s film, the President raps “For all the middle Americans who know me best I feel like me and Hil might still have sex — I made that b—h famous.” In an outtake from the show, one of the “Make a Scene” troupers raises a rumor about Franco, then sets the record straight.
“I’m sure people think James is gay,” the castmember said. “He’s not, but they do.”
