Imagine walking into your first day of classes next semester at New York University‘s Tisch School of the Arts and seeing one of the most attractive actors alive today, James Franco, standing at your class podium. Well, for 12 lucky third-year graduate students at NYU, this dream will be a reality.
It was recently announced that Franco, who is also studying for his MFA in film production from NYU, will be teaching a class on adapting poetry into short films.
“He’s here to teach because he really knows something about directing that the can share with our students,” said John Tintori, chair of the 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.”
Franco has also partnered with Columbia College Hollywood to offer another 12-student class. Students in this class will have to create a documentary using footage from Franco’s film career. The class is called Master Class: Editing James Franco… With James Franco and is going to be taught by Tyler Danna, Franco’s editor.
If you could walk into your classroom next semester and have any celebrity as your professor, who would it be? Honestly, mine would be Franco, so I guess I will need to transfer to NYU next year. Now, if only I can figure out how to get into his highly-selective class…
