James Franco is a man of many talents, but making a porno is not one of them. While appearing on Conan last night, the actor detailed his disastrous foray into the XXX biz. The Academy Award-nominated actor told Conan that when he was a young actor, he traveled to the pornography capital of America, Van Nuys, California, and attempted to "break into the porn industry." Franco said that he and his then girlfriend grabbed a video camera and made their own naughty film. The results, according to Franco, were far for stellar. Franco told Conan, that he "watched it back and said yeah, let's never watch that again." Franco may not have become a porn star, but he's set to star in a film about porn. He will play a drug addicted lawyer who gets involved with a young porn star in Cherry, opposite Heather Graham.

TBS Cancels Lopez Tonight

George Lopez may have thought that moving his talk show to a later time slot so he could earn a huge lead-in from Conan O'Brien might have moved him and his show to a higher grade of late night talk show royalty, but it only ended up moving him out of a job. TBS announced Wednesday that they are not renewing Lopez's late night show after only two seasons.

Americans are Abandoning Cable Television

The weak economy and easy availability of television shows online is, for the first time, resulting in Americans abandoning their cable and satellite television subscriptions in record numbers. Last year was the first year subscription rates to cable and satellite television actually fell, ever. Back then it was only a trickle and subscriptions rates did rebound. Now, however, people are cutting the cord and leaving in droves. The Associated Press reports that eight of the nine largest subscription TV providers in the U.S. lost 195,700 subscribers in the April-to-June quarter. This does not include Cox Communications, the third largest cable provide in the country. Analysts believe that somewhere between 380,000 and 450,000 subscribers have deserted, the largest decline in U.S. history. The AP blames high unemployment and services like Netflix and Hulu.

Jordan (The Country, Not the Basketball Player) Building "Star Trek" Theme Park

The Star Trek franchise is about to boldly go where no franchise has gone before: a 184-acre theme park. A funding deal has been made to build the sprawling theme park that will cost roughly $1.5 billion to construct, thanks to investments from King Abdullah and other American investors. The park is expected to open for business in 2014 and tentative plans include 17 entertainment areas, four hotels, and a "space flight adventure" ride.
