Some people look at a few days off as a welcome respite from work; James Franco, on the other hand, sees more opportunity. And so it is that the incredibly multitasked actor has added, yes, yet another project to the pile: Starting May 8 and running for a week, he will direct and narrate a multimedia piece called Collage at the Stella Adler studios that features live dance, theater, music, and poetry. If he can promise to wear his dance outfit from the Oscars' opening montage, we're in. [Gothamist]
