(Newser) – James Franco, who may be headed for an Oscar nomination for his role in 127 Hours, took an acting class at NYU … and got a D. “I did the work, I did well in everything else,” he tells Showbiz411, attributing his low grade to lots of absences—he was, after all, shooting a movie—and the fact that the instructer probably felt uncomfortable working with him.
