Hollywood, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – Following the U.S. Government’s confirmation that North Korea was responsible for the cyber attack on Sony Pictures, Hollywood actor James Franco announced that he was changing his name, effectively immediately.

The attack on Sony, conducted by a group calling itself the Guardians of Peace, exposed a number of embarrassing emails between producers and top executives at the movie studio. The group said it was targeting Sony because of its film “The Interview,” a comedy about a pair of American journalists sent to assassinate North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

Franco is one of the lead actors in the film.  The other is Seth Rogen.

“I am changing my name for personal security reasons but also because I like the sound of “James Flacco,”  Franco said.  President Barack Obama referred to Franco as Flacco at this morning’s White House press conference during which the president confirmed that  the government of Kim Jong Un was responsible for the cyber attack against Sony.
