Hide yo kids, Hide yo kids’ wives because James Franco will be teaching a class as a graduate film teacher at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. That’s right, all the pot smoking finally paid off and James Franco will teach a third year course on directing and adapting poetry into short films. If Franco’s teaching style is anything like his hosting skills at the Oscars, then the students are in for a special class with a professor like every other college professor – dull & boring.
The chair of the graduate film programme, John Tintori, believes that Franco has all the qualities needed to be a great professor.
Tintori told the New York Post, ”He’s here to teach because he really knows something about directing that he can share with our students. He’s incredibly prolific, and that comes from a real work ethic – and that’s another thing to impart to our students.”
Apparently only 12 students will be able to register for this intimate class. Fucking lucky bastards.
