James Franco: Underdressed


A reader says this is the shirt given away to prospective students.

The Academy Award nominee, who’s been spotted around town often, has a bizarre educational history that includes Warren Wilson College. From a Uinterview News article:

Franco’s ambitious academic pursuits have led some to speculate just how much academic work is humanly possible for a person to complete at one time. Franco enrolled at UCLA in 2006 (he had dropped out in 1996) and took between 20-62 credits per semester when the average course load was 19. He simultaneously attended three MFA programs in New York City: NYU for film, Columbia University for creative writing and Brooklyn College for creative writing.

During those three MFA stints he also attended Warren Wilson College in North Carolina to study poetry. Franco has since received his degree from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2012 and is currently pursuing a Ph.D. in English from Yale University. He was accepted into a Ph.D. program at the University of Houston as well, though he elected not to attend. –Hal Sundt

He’s a serial academic.
Or a cereal addict.
