James Franco has an English major with a concentration in creative writing – he took 62 credits instead of the recommended 19 to finish early & finished with a GPA of 3.5+. He then went to Columbia University to attend the MFA writing program WHILE going to NYU’s School of Arts for Film. After that he went for his Ph.D in English at Yale. All the while he was creating 60 movies, directing 10, and played “Franco” in General Hospital.
You know why I know this?
James Franco said so – in the wordiest, craziest wikipedia page I’ve ever seen! It has a whopping 91 sources – I’m pretty sure it’s his creative writing thesis. I don’t think you can find out this much information on Kings, or Presidents.. or your significant other.
The most important person in James Franco’s life is James Franco and now he wants you to take his college course and invest your education & career aspirations on James Franco as well.
In an offical press release from Movie Line, Columbia College in Hollywood announced that it is offering an “innovative” course where 12 of their BEST film students will create a 30 minute documentary of the “unorthodox career” of “Mr. Franco”.
For serious – I’m not bullshmacking you.. People will pay thousands to FEED James Franco’s Ego.
Here’s more from the press statement:
“Mr. Franco’s frequent collaborator editor and Tyler Danna [sic] is teaching the course, which has been entitled Master Class: Editing James Franco…with James Franco. Mr. Franco is providing the footage – much of it from behind the scenes on short films he has directed – and the conception for the course and will speak to the students weekly via live feed (Skype) and attend class the weekly class sessions [sic] when his schedule allows. The student editors will seek to create a cinematic image of James Franco through the footage.”
So basically, he’s teaching a course he probably won’t attend and when he does he wants videos students made of how AWESOME he is – that he’ll be allowed to grade.
F–K it – I want to be James Franco.
