The Deuce Premiere Recap and Review

"The Deuce" is a new HBO series that aired its pilot on September 10. It takes place in the late 70s to the mid-80s and revolves around the adult film industry’s rise to infamy and big bucks. The show is set in Times Square and shows us plenty of details about the seedy underbelly of New York during that time period. It was created by George Pelecanos and David Simon and produced by Simon and Pelecanos, as well as Michelle MacLaren, Nina Kostroff Noble, Richard Price, and James Franco, who also stars in the series as twin brothers Vinnie and Frankie. Full Frontal You may remember Franco from his previous works, mainly in film, including playing Hugh Hefner in "Lovelace" in 2013. He also appeared in nine films that are currently in post-production, one that is completed and ready for release, as well as two that are filming now. Other films include "Why Him?" and "King Cobra" in 2016, "Oz the Great and Powerful" in 2013," Rise of the Planet of the Apes" in 2011, "Pineapple Express" in 2008, "Spider-Man 3" in 2007, and way too many more to list. Now that he’s pushing 40, he seems to have lost some of his boyish charm but gained a sad worldliness that comes across beautifully in his performance in "The Deuce". And, he’s not afraid to get naked in front of the cameras, which is something the actors and actresses do a lot of in the premiere. So, be sure to send the kids to bed before the next show airs because full frontal nudity is not uncommon on "The Deuce". READ MORE...
