James Franco May Be Heading to Yale


We get it, James Franco: You’re smarter than us all! The Yale Daily News has confirmed with Franco’s manager that the actor — who recently got his M.F.A. at Columbia and has studied film at NYU — has been accepted to Yale University’s English Ph.D. program and that it's his “first-choice school,” though he has not yet committed to attending. Though with Franco, who really knows? This could just be some “meta” stunt in which he pretends to go to Yale so he can film it for some 3-D web simulcast with a poetry component that comments on the pointlessness of the human condition.
