Watch James Franco's Latest Foray Into Playing Gay In The 'Wild Horses' Trailer

Another day, another gay role for James Franco. This time via Robert Duvall, who wrote, directed and stars in “Wild Horses,” which basically reads like “The Judge” if Robert Downey Jr was gay and played by James Franco:

Texas Ranger Samantha Payne (Luciana Duvall) reopens a 15-year-old Missing Persons case, uncovering clues linking a local boy’s death to wealthy family man, Scott Briggs (Robert Duvall). Samantha will stop at nothing to discover the truth even if it means risking her own life.

With the unexpected return of his estranged gay son Ben (Franco), Briggs must find a way to either silence the law for good, or come to terms with the hidden relationship between Ben and the boy that he tried to end years ago.

The film premiered at SXSW, and hits theaters June 5th. You can watch the trailer below:
