For some reason I could totally see him as Spike in the cowboy bebop movie.

I have a feeling Franco isn't really jaded or sees himself as "all important" (read: not like a normal actor). I think he's just enjoying the ride and taking it for what it is.

Seems like he's more amused by it all.

James Franco is a self-absorbed douche. He's the real-life equivalent of Team America's Matt Damon: all he knows how to say is "I'm James Franco" and expects instant respect and sex.

Are you sure? Cause I thought he was that guy from Freaks and Geeks.

Hmmm...you sound like a jealous and pathetic loser!!!

Nice Subby; that's by far my favorite line from that movie. The look of satisfaction coupled with the pie just reeks of awesomeness.

Man. James Franco got on the ball and is moving forward in his graduate studies. Why can't I be more like James Franco?

Hi, I used to teach at Yale University and had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Franco.

I found him to be quite delightful and down to earth. I enjoyed discussing subjects ranging from Art History to Modern Politics. I also enjoyed his soft kisses and wonderful blowjob.

That bathroom scene deserves to be in a movie.

Nice. As someone who was not only twice rejected from NYU Film but also Columbia's film program... Apparently grades and a portfolio doesn't matter, you just have to be famous.

So... fark you, James. Thanks for taking up a spot that could have went to me.

Or maybe he, you know, earned it. Where did it say he was doing poorly?

Just a guess, but I'm betting his portfolio is a little better than yours.

I don't think the guy is as unqualified as your green eyes make him out to be. He finished an undergrad at UCLA and went right to grad school. Considering he's got more money than he knows what to do with I applaud the fact that someone in Hollywood is actually getting an education, instead of just spewing political filth backed by 8 years of elementary school and a semester at community college.

Yeah, he was in this little movie nobody ever heard of called "Spiderman."

But I'm sure that Tobsterius's indie film about fat girls cutting themselves in black and white (or whatever) is just as good as Spiderman.

I applied without wanting to go to either school and was accepted to both. It seems they didn't have enough qualified candidates. So fark YOU.

Not trying to be cool or anything, but I have no clue who this person is. I did, however, read that in Teen Girl Squad's voice.

Ouch, didn't think my comment would have made such a splash. I was wait-listed, if that matters.

But seriously.. NYU Film, Columbia writing program, PHD program at Yale... I can't help but wonder how many fully qualified candidates were turned down because the schools wanted James Franco in their program.

/just bitter, is all

Yes, he's very hot, but he's been an ass to my friends enough times that I'm no longer attracted to him in any way.

So he's an actor then? I've been told Wil Wheaten used to do that.

radioman_: An MFA is a terminal degree. Why does he need a doctorate?

He doesn't need one at all; hell, he doesn't need an MFA for that matter. He is pursuing knowledge. Perhaps will do good work with that knowledge, either teaching or making good art, but even the pursuit and self-improvement are reason enough.

Robert Vaugn earned a Ph.D. in history from USC, studying the McCarthy blacklisting. Blossom's is in biochemistry. Robocop is finishing up his in ancient Greece (or is it ancient Rome? - feh, one of the subdisciplines in the Classics department), and is reportedly an excellent lecturer.

At least their studies are toward a real doctorates, rather than an Ed.D. I also presume he (like those three before him) is not planning just to "research" the effects of his own programmes on the viewers. Bill Cosby's Ed.D. dissertation was a self-serving study extolling the virtues of Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids.

I went to NYU Film. I am not now nor have I ever been rich/famous/connected. The vast majority of my classmates were all Middle class kids and, frankly, I was never very impressed with their grades/SAT's.

So I say to you, days after this thread has essnetially closed... put up a link to your portfolio, a link to a video you shot on youtube or just a pdf of something you've written.
