much fun as kissing actresses Blake Lively on the CW's Gossip Girl

sorry James,” he said.

October, stars Franco as beat generation poet Ginsberg fighting
obscenity charges for his 1955 poem Howl.
Tveit added that Ginsberg's life began
to turn around after he met the love of his life, Orlovsky.
“[Ginsberg and Orlovsky's]
relationship in the movie comes off very sweetly and it's kind of the
turning point in Allen's life as a writer, too,” he said. “These
guys just truly fall in love and then everything just kind of turns
around in Allen's life.”
