Will he ever actually show?
James Franco makes plans to be a University of Houston student: But how seriousare his Cougar visions?
Perma-student/actor James Franco could be headed to the University of Houston.
A University of Houston administrator confirmed Thursday to the Houston Chronicle that Franco had been accepted into the doctoral program in literature and creative writing and plans to enroll in September 2012 — nearly a year and a half from now. Burn Down Blog first reported that Franco is on UH's enrollment list.
If Franco ever actually shows up on UH's campus and completes the program, and that's a big if, it will be the actor's third degree, with three more in the pipeline — many of them attained simultaneously.
We have to wonder how seriously Franco is taking his studies — and his move — or whether this was a 4/20 idea gone wrong, like that time I thought I could center a cable-network puppet show around my hands. (I named them. It was HILARIOUS.)
What do you think? Is Franco serious about this Ph.D, or is he taking the spot from someone more committed?
