James Franco looks set for a troubling time as according to Yahoo, Busy Philipps, has called out her former Freaks and Geeks co-star in her forthcoming memoir, This Will Only Hurt a Little, due out October 16th.

In an excerpt obtained by online media Philipps allegedly writes that Franco was a “fucking bully” on the set of the 1999 cult series, recalling an incident where she was directed to nudge. According to Philipps, Franco didn’t handle it well, as she describes, “He grabbed both my arms and screamed in my face, ‘DON’T EVER TOUCH ME AGAIN! And he threw me to the ground. Flat on my back. Wind knocked out of me.”

Philipps goes on to add more detail to the story highlighting that co-star Linda Cardellini was horrified and insisted she call her manager. Franco did reportedly apologise, though only after being ordered by the director and senior figures of the show.

This allegation follows previous reports of alleged sexual misconduct levied at Franco last year.
