Potential Oscar Nominee James Franco Gets 'D' in Acting Class

franco_snl_120.jpgJames Franco will be in the thick of the Oscar race this year thanks to his performance in 127 Hours, but that doesn't mean everyone thinks he's a good actor. At the premiere of Howl last night, Franco revealed he got a 'D' in a recent acting class at NYU, though he isn't sure how that happened. "I did the work, I did well in everything else," he told Roger Friedman. Maybe his teacher saw Flyboys. [Showbiz411]
