James Franco, star of Oz the Great and Powerful has become the latest Hollywood A-lister to be honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was joined on Hollywood Boulevard by his brother Dave Franco (21 Jump Street, Scrubs) and their mother Betsy during the ceremony which marked the 2,492nd addition to the Walk of Fame.

Franco’s Oz the Great and Powerful director Sam Raimi and This is the End co-star Seth Rogan also came along to pay tribute to the actor.

"Working with James over the years, I've learned many things about him," said Raimi. "James is a teacher, a poet, a sculptor, an actor, a director, a writer, a producer, a basket weaver - the thing goes on and on for days! Seems like we're always discovering James's next endeavour.

"Today we join the rest of the world to honour you in your achievements with a much-deserved star on Hollywood's Walk of Fame, a star made from marble which you yourself have hewn from a mountain, from brass that you have smelted."
