James Franco's Holding A Seance To Talk To Tennessee Williams!

Quick question: Has James Franco lost his mind?

We only ask because we can't remember a time when we reported a story on him that wasn't tinted in crazy or absurd.

So, many of you might not know what Perfoma is, but it's actually pretty cool. It's a biannual performance art festival held in NYC and while a lot of cool artists contribute, this year the festival has a big name throwing his "artistic genius" into the fun.

On Sunday November 13, James Franco will

James Franco Drops Out Of Broadway Debut!

james-franco-drops-out-of-broadway-debut

As much as he'd like to try to do anything and everything, we suppose he just can't fit it all in!

Although James Franco was expected to make his Broadway debut this fall in its production of Tennessee Williams' Sweet Bird of Youth alongside Nicole Kidman - you know, on top of appearing on General Hospital, starring in Oz: The Great and Powerful, performing in Kalup & Franco, and pursing his 18 Master's and Doctoral programs - the actor has reportedly dropped out (surprise, surprise) due to

Franco Headed To Broadway With Nicole Kidman

Such a great play and such a great fit for them, we think.

It's been confirmed that James Franco and Nicole Kidman have signed on to star on Broadway this fall in a production of Tennessee Williams’s Sweet Bird of Youth. For those of you who don't know, it's the story of a guy named Chance Wayne who returns to his hometown after trying to break into the movies, to reunite with his childhood sweetheart.

We're not sure exactly who Nicole is poised to play, but we can only assume James will be taking on the role of Chance. Then again, according to reports, rehearsals are being scheduled around Franco's fall class lineup at Yale. We imagined he'd have to leave permanently to play the lead.

Worth it, if you ask us. Allow us to quote our favorite line from the play:

"I think that hate is a feeling that can only exist where there is no understanding."

Truer words were never written, we say.

We're excited to see this. Are U?

James Franco Coming To Broadway??

james-franco-coming-to-broadway.jpg

He's having a busy week!!

Earlier this week, it was announced that James Franco will be co-hosting the Oscars and now the actor may have a new gig!

He's in talks to star Sweet Bird of Youth on Broadway next fall with Nicole Kidman.

The last time the Tennessee Williams play was on Broadway was in 1975, starring Christopher Walken.

This will certainly be a hot ticket and will hopefully bring some life into Broadway, which has prematurely closed several shows recently.

Would U want to see James Franco on stage??
