James Franco really has that school spirit. After recently announcing that he's producing a musical at Yale University, he's now decided to teach a college course — about himself.
According to Movieline, the Oscar nominee/host has joined forces with Columbia College Hollywood for "Master Class: Editing James Franco… with James Franco."
The course, taught by Franco's frequent collaborator/editor Tyler Danna, will have 12 of the film school's students creating a 30-minute documentary using footage from Franco's career.
Besides the Columbia course, the busy actor/director/author is adding another project to his already-packed lineup: Broadway. Playbill confirms earlier reports that he'll appear alongside Nicole Kidman in the Broadway revival of "Sweet Bird of Youth."
The production, in which he'll play a gigolo wooing a faded movie star, is set to open sometime after the summer.
