Seriously, is there anything James Franco can't do?
The recent news that Franco is set to direct a dance theater program got us to thinking about a few things we'd like to see Franco take a stab at.
1) Join the circus
Remember "Circus of the Stars?" Well, we're not talking about that.
We'd like to see Franco chuck it all for a chance under the big lights in the big top. Plus, who wouldn't love to see him in that little trapeze outfit?
2) Take over for Oprah
Franco as talk show host. Imagine the probing insight he could bring and the big name guests he could book. If anyone could get Sean Penn to open up and share, it would be his "Milk" co-star Franco.
And aren't you dying to know what would be his "favorite things"?
3) Become a superhero
Come on people, the man played Harry Osborn in "Spider-Man!" How big a leap would it be for him to become a real-life superhero?
4) Study to become a physician
Have you seen "127 Hours"? Enough said.
5) Run for president of the United States
Why should Donald Trump have all of the "maybe I'll run for office" fun?
Franco wouldn't be the first actor to aspire to live in the White House, but for sure he would be the hottest. Not to mention he's already got built-in constituencies thanks to nerds ("Freaks and Geeks") and stoners ("Pineapple Express"), so why not?
