Actor and student James Franco graces the cover of GQ Style Germany Spring 2012 in a bizarre and serious black and white shoot.

James Franco was captured by Mariano Vivanco for GQ Style Germany, who produced a uniquely artistic set of images of the actor using a variety of lighting techniques to create a dark and shadowy story. While some of the shots may be a little hard to take seriously due to a ferocious head of hair that even exceeds his normal bed head-ridden state, overall it's a well-executed, classy editorial.

The GQ Style Germany Spring 2012 issue is the biannual release of the menswear-focused fashion magazine. The Fall 2011 issue featured 'True Blood' star Alex Skarsgaard on the cover. Stats for Retro Celeb Shoots Trending: Older & Buzzing
