Dave Franco was mostly known as actor-director James Franco’s younger brother, until he appeared in a supporting role in a comedy movie, which starred Channing Tatum in the lead. Dave slowly worked his way up in the industry, while he was still studying and doing theatre. James’ manager propelled him to make the gradual shift from TV to the big screen and Dave finally received the recognition he deserved.
Dave started to appear in inconsequential roles in films like ‘After Sex’, ‘Superbad’, ‘Milk’ etc and also starred in some blink-and-you-miss roles in films until ‘The Shortcut’ got him noticed in the main stream. Post a list of duds again, Dave acted in elder brother James-directed biographical film ‘The Broken Tower’, where he played Franco’s younger self and got his big break with ‘21 Jump Street’. Here’s a list of top 10 Dave Franco movies that brought him out of his brother’s shadow.
10. Unfinished Business (2015)
An out-an-out comedy movie starring Vince Vaughn in the lead, the film talks about a small-time businessman, who quits his former job to start his own venture, for which he travels all the way to Europe with two of his associates and ends up in situations he had never dreamt of. The film was a box office bomb and was panned by the critics, yet Dave Franco, who played Vaughn’s intellectually challenged subordinate with a positive outlook towards life, without going overboard with it, was widely lauded for his portrayal.
