James Franco: English Nerd
Some nerds are hot. Very hot- made hotter by the fact that they are nerds. Last night James Franco was on The Daily Show, discussing his Oscar nomination for the Danny Boyle film, 127 Hours. When he heard that he had the nomination he chose to go to his class at Yale instead of heading to a morning talk show. Apparently it was a class on the Romantic poets, so he couldn't miss that (I totally agree). He's pursuing a PhD in English, it helps 'get the ladies.'
His love and knowledge of English no doubt helped with his role as Allen Ginsberg in the recent film Howl about the obscenities trial surrounding the poem of the same name. A film I've yet to see, but have heard good things about.
So, next time someone complains about the lack of guys that are smart and sexy, point out James Franco as hope for woman-kind.
