And the new ‘Top Chef’ is…

After 16 episodes and more than 30 challenges, we have a new "Top Chef."

“All-Stars” has pushed the chefs throughout the season, so the final challenge last night wasn’t the standard “cook us the best meal of your life.” Instead, Richard and Mike are charged with putting together a four-course tasting menu for the restaurant of their dreams.

James Franco to teach directing at NYU

He's already teaching a class about himself at Columbia College Hollywood, and now James Franco is taking his knowledge to NYU. The everywhere actor will serve as the instructor for a third-year course on directing at the Tisch School of the Arts, reports the New York Post.

The course will be limited to 12 students and will focus on adapting poetry into short films. Oscar nominee Franco has previously directed several short films, is planning to direct three screenplays, and recently teamed up with rockers R.E.M. to direct two mini movies for the group's Collapse Into Now Film Project.

"He's here to teach because he really knows something about directing that he can share with our students," John Tintori, chair of the graduate film program, tells the New York Post. "He's incredibly prolific, and that comes from a real work ethic — and that's another thing to impart to our students."
