Noted actor and infamous Academy Awards cohost James Franco sent some Twitter love to fellow Palo Alto High School alum Jeremy Lin today. And, boy, does he need it. Regarding Lin's performance Thursday night, Gothamist's Tom Boorstein says, "Jeremy Lin looked nothing like the sensation that had revived the Knicks and made every team and college that passed on him rue the day it did. Lin scored eight points (on 1-of-11 shooting) with eight turnovers in the Knicks' 102-88 loss in Miami."

Below, Franco snapped this shot of Lin standing next to filmmaker Spike Lee wearing a Palo Alto H.S. shirt.
