The 32-year-old actor will take his knowledge of the film industry to New York University, where he will become a professor next year at the Tisch School of the Arts.
James will teach a class of twelve graduate students about adapting poetry into film.
“He’s here to teach because he really knows something about directing that he can share with our students,” said John Tintori, chair of NYU’s graduate film program. “He’s incredibly prolific, and that comes from a real work ethic — and that’s another thing to impart to our students.”
We knew we were doomed to love Mildred Pierce far before we switched on our TV Sunday night to watch the first two installments. A five-part HBO miniseries based on the James M. Cain novel, directed by Todd Haynes, starring Kate Winslet, Guy Pearce, and (in later episodes) Evan Rachel Wood? Despite our attachment to Joan Crawford’s film version, we were instantly addicted. And it got us thinking: Why do we tend to ignore TV miniseries, only to zone out when they have their moment at the Golden Globes or the Emmys? With the help from the wonderful Flavorpill staff, we’ve resolved to fill the gaps in our viewing with this list of must-see serials, from the ’70s through the HBO-dominated present. -http://flavorwire.com

Yesterday, a friend sent me an article about how James Franco is now teaching a class on James Franco…
…Master Class: Editing James Franco… with James Franco, in which 12 lucky students will build a half-hour documentary about Franco, from footage provided by Franco, and under the occasional supervision of Franco.
This along with the news that Franco is putting out an album sometime later this year, has confirmed my belief that James Franco is the most interesting man in the world. This is neither good nor bad at the same time that it is both good and bad—yes, I am aware that doesn’t make sense but either does James Franco (lawyered!!)
To get a feel for the method to his madness, NY Magazine [source: instapaperstories] wrote a piece on him a while back. I don’t know if a method can be deduced from the interview as much as madness but take a look by clicking on James’ face :)
If you watch one video today, please let it be this. I think I took 1 breath the whole time.Source: youtube.com
