For James Franco's next role, he'll be playing a sketchy guy trying to pick up a girl 18 years younger than him via Instagram. Oh wait, apparently, that just happened in real life.

It all started innocently enough when the 35-year-old Spring Breakers star posed for pics with fans outside his Broadway show, including a blonde tourist named Lucy Clode who took an Instagram video of James, who told her to tag him in it, which she did.

James then supposedly began following the 17-year-old and direct messaged her a selfie before asking her to meet up and get a hotel room, despite the fact that she said she's way younger than him. See screenshots of all the alleged exchanges below.

James then tried to do some damage control, changing his Instagram profile to read: "Please don't DM if you're under 18, thank you." But he must have had second thoughts, because he's since deleted that warning.

What do you think of his sketchy messages? We feel like we need a shower after reading them.
