Professor James Franco

How’d you like to see this handsome face behind the podium at the front of your classroom?

If you’re a film student at University of Southern California, consider yourself lucky. James Franco, the “actor-Oscar-host-soap-star-artist-poet-novelist,” will be teaching a course, alongside his business partner Vince Jolivette, at USC’s School of Cinematic Arts, as reported by the L.A. Times.

The class will be separated into eight teams, each of which will produce a short movie no longer than 10 minutes, all of which will be combined into a longer film. The class, which an email from USC calls “The Labyrinth,” is meant to produce films that explore “the unknown, the unexplained and the unimaginable.”

“There may be one hiccup in Franco’s teaching schedule, however: His next film, ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful,’ is set to hit theaters in March. That means he’ll likely be busy promoting his role as the Wizard for at least a couple of weeks during the spring,” reports the L.A. Times.

We’re sure his students will understand.
