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.”
