At the Franco dinner table, Dave may sound like the underachiever when compared to older brother James, who recently hosted the Oscars, is slated to star in and direct several high-profile projects, and is working on, like, a zillion different graduate degrees at once. But can we talk for a second about how freaking cute Dave is? And his acting career is starting to take off—he has just been cast in “21 Jump Street,” the movie reboot of Johnny Depp‘s star-making show. He’ll be acting alongside Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill, playing a super cool high schooler who just happens to be a big time drug dealer.

Oscar-nominated actor, performance artist, writer, aspiring film director, Yale Ph.D student, and now … college professor. James Franco does it all!

James Franco and Anne Hathaway are the youngest hosts of the Oscars, ever—it’s a stat that’s been repeated over and over again since it was first announced that the two would be taking on hosting duties. But, uh, how did they do? I’d give Anne an A- for being friendly and charming, and for taking beaks from her scripted dialogue for off-the-cuff moments. Meanwhile, James gets a C for having stank face throughout the whole show. Also, was it just me, or did he seem to be squinting to read the teleprompter an awful lot? Homedude looked like he needed glasses, or like he’d jumped on the Pineapple Express in the green room.
After the jump, we grade the dynamic duo on some of their best and worst moments. Keep reading »
