(Newser) – James Franco is everywhere, doing seemingly everything—hosting the Oscars, starring in movies, acting on General Hospital, working on a PhD, and now this ... He's developing a class at Columbia College Hollywood where the course material is— himself, MovieLine reports. It's really a class to teach editing, but the principle assignment is to create a biography of Franco using clips from his established films and unreleased shorts he directed. The name? "Master Class: Editing James Franco…with James Franco."
