James Franco is in his third year of graduate school at NYU, and now the 32-year-old actor plans to put on his teaching hat.
The Oscar host has announced he'll be teaching a class on directing at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, according to the NY Post. The class will focus on adapting poetry into short films.
NYU's faculty member John Tintori tells the Post:
- â€œHeâ€™s here to teach because he really knows something about directing that he can share with our students. Heâ€™s incredibly prolific, and that comes from a real work ethic - and thatâ€™s another thing to impart to our students.â€
