James Franco is at it again.

The famously eccentric actor -- who recently went bald for his latest film Zeroville in which he plays an obsessed film fan who moves to Hollywood in the 1960s -- showed up to the premiere of his film The Sound and the Fury during the Venice Film Festival Friday, sporting an Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift tattoo on the back of his head.

The huge black-and-white tattoo is from the 1951 film A Place in the Sun, and took up the entire back of the This Is the End star's head.

He also sported a fake moustache -- he didn't have a moustache in a selfie he posted on his Instagram just two days ago -- and curiously left his white shirt all the way unbuttoned under his black suit jacket during his strange Venice Film Festival appearance.

Do you think Franco's taking his latest film role a little too far?
