James Franco catches fish at Seattle's Pike Place Market

Ahead of his art gallery opening in Seattle, actor James Franco stopped by one of the most iconic places in the Pacific Northwest to throw fish at Seattle's Pike Place Market.

A gallery featuring the collaborative work of Franco and artist Cheyenne Randall will be showcased at Treason Gallery in nearby Pioneer Square.

The artist reception is Thursday during the First Thursday Art Walk.

Instagram and Twitter accounts are not clear whether Franco will be at the reception, but the star was spotted earlier this week in the Pike Place Market.

Ok, here's a smiling one. Catching fish in Seattle! (The Real World, yo) Love to the 5 mill!

Franco, Randall and the gallery have posted on social accounts about the show with the hashtag #HOLLYWOODNT.

“Working on a number of projects together, Franco and Randall decided to collaborate on a mural installation,” the gallery wrote on its website.
