Actor and upcoming Oscar co-host James Franco likes to keep people guessing. He's here at the Sundance Film Festival not exactly with a movie, but with an unusual project called "Three's Company: The Drama", a creative take on the '70s sitcom. It's an immersive experience featured in the New Frontier section at the festival.
James and I hung out to chat about the "Three's Company" installation, his chances for an Academy Award nomination, how preparations are going for his Oscars hosting gig, and why he was spotted at a Sundance party in a wig.
Some highlights from our chat:
–James told me he sported a long blonde wig as a tribute to the Chrissy character from "Three's Company" played by Suzanne Somers.
See more of my fascinating interview with James Franco Sunday on CNN and Monday on HLN's Showbiz Tonight.
