Who's bigger, Statham or Franco?

At his first red carpet event for a major Hollywood release, the "Homefront" premiere at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas Wednesday, Stillwater author Chuck Logan described a chaotic scene. "Cameras everywhere, people moving you along -- I wound up lost in some storage area at one point." Logan spoke briefly with both top-billed stars, Jason Statham and James Franco,  and was struck by how much bigger Statham looks onscreen than in real life. 

"Actually Franco's almost bigger than him, I think," he said. "I don't know what they do, maybe have everyone else walk in specially dug trenches so they look shorter, like they used to do with Alan Ladd."

A feature on Logan and the movie runs Sunday, and a review of "Homefront" next Wednesday.
