Person of the Week
I just stumbled upon a new realization today. James Franco is the proverbial man. My new film hero. In lieu of this discovery, I have decided to post a weekly blog entry highlighting my favorite new "Person of the Week." The inaugural winner of this venerable award is indeed James Franco.
This guy has such an intricate depth of talent that I can only watch in awe. As if being an Oscar nominated Actor is not enough accomplishment for one person, he decides to pursue four Master's degrees and a PhD from Yale University.
In addition, he will be the 2011 host of the Academy Awards, teaches a class at Yale, starred in daytime TV Soap Opera General Hospital, is currently starring in one of my favorite new films of the year, 127 Hours—with which an Oscar Nomination for Best Actor is all but guaranteed—and played iconic, but troubled film star, James Dean.
Oh yeah, he also paints, his work has been displayed publicly, and just about every lady clamors after him.
The list of his prodigious feats can fill a novel, so I will not reference them all. But the point is made clear, crystal clear. If one is not impressed by Franco's illustrious resume, then there is no one on this planet that you can admire. Mission of the day for all my bloggers --> Wikipedia James Franco.
