GUEST POST: A Day in the Life: James Franco

What would you do the day that you hear you've been nominated for an Oscar? Call your family? Run down the street screaming? Um...go to class?


That's what James Franco elected to do yesterday morning. During an appearance on The Daily Show, he walked Jon Stewart through his morning: waking up at 5 a.m., driving to class at Yale, and then having a phone interview with the Today Show before ducking into the classroom, where not once did the professor or students divert the conversation away from Byron (the poet, for those of you unfamiliar) to draw attention to Franco's stellar accomplishment.


The interview probably made girls (and guys) everywhere fall in love with him even more. He just got nominated for an Oscar, which seems like the best excuse in the world to skip class, but earning a Ph.D. in English is more important. Franco is so down-to-earth and humble during the interview, you almost forget the fact that he is a giant movie star. Not to mention the hilarious spoof of his Oscar-nominated performance in 127 Hours: in several clips before his interview, the camera flashes to Franco in the green room, where he has tragically gotten his hand caught beneath a mini-fridge. Clearly the only option is to cut off his arm with a machete, right? Right.


Gotta love a guy with a sense of humor...especially if he's a hot famous actor.
