After mastering so many movie scripts, you would have thought the opening call for the Daytona 500 would have been a breeze for James Franco!

However, that wasn't the case for the newly blonde actor who blotched the famous race call, which would normally begin with "Gentlemen start your engines".

But with the first female competitor Danica Patrick entering the race, things got interesting.

Rather then changing the call to "Lady and gentlemen", Franco instead opened with "Drivers and Danica start your engines".

While it could have been a lot worse, his choice of words certainly got people talking...

At least he has acting to fall back on!
