Former NYU professor Sues James Franco for Defamation

Academy award winner James Franco is being sued by his former professor of New York University, José Angel Santana. The multi-talented career student took a course, Directing the Actor, and after receiving a “D” informed the news outlet Showbiz411 back in 2010 that Santana was “awful.” Adding that he only attended 12 out of the 14 classes. “I didn’t feel like I needed to waste my time with a bad teacher,” the 127 hours actor noted.

James Franco: “Don’t do a movie you wouldn’t see or don’t believe in, because movies can be hell to make”

James Franco is an interesting nut to crack. He’s alternately wonderful (127 Hours) and infuriating (his stint as Oscars host, Your Highness, allegedly not really earning all the college degrees he seems to get every other month) to observe, and it’s hard to decide whether I respect him as an artist or shrug off his efforts to become a pretentious renaissance man.
