Celebritology 2.0 Archive: James Franco

Oscars 2011: Has James Franco provided a sneak peek of the Oscar opening number?

Once again, James Franco's newly created Twitter account delivers. A few hours ago, he tweeted a link to the video you see above, which appears to feature Oscar 2011 hosts Franco and Anne Hathaway doing their own version of "You're The One That I Want" from "Grease." Will this actually be part of the telecast? Is this cleverly edited piece of video, like the similarly tweeted audio of Franco covering Cher, another example of something we won't see on Oscar night? Unclear. What is clear is the following: Celebritology has decided to change its mission and instead blog solely about whatever James Franco tweets. We will rename the blog WWFT -- What Would Franco Tweet? -- and track every minor move he makes on the social networking platform. It will be a major break from our mission to cover entertainment news more generally, but whatever. We're sure you'll understand....

So far, his tweets have generally consisted of links to odd photos and weird comic strips with some NSFW language. For example, see this picture of a shoulder? Twenty-two people liked it on Facebook. Because Franco posted it. Hell, I even kind of like it for that reason. Anyway, the soon-to-be-Oscar host has finally shared something vaguely juicy: audio of him singing "You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," Cher's big number from "Burlesque." As previously reported, the number has been scrapped from the Academy...

Oscars 2011: Who will make a cameo appearance in the opening number?

We're less than two weeks from Oscar showtime. And that means the people behind the scenes are starting to leak tidbits to the media. Specifically, producer Bruce Cohen tells Entertainment Weekly that the closely guarded James Franco/Anne Hathaway opening number will include "a very exciting and special guest star or two." Naturally, that got our mental juices flowing. Who would be the perfect guest star -- or two -- to join our young Academy Awards hosts Feb. 27? Here are a few guesses, ranked on a scale from possible to totally never going to happen....

James Franco as the Wizard of Oz?

This, as Jen noted this morning, only solidifies James Franco's status as the Johnny Depp of his generation since Depp himself reportedly passed on the project.
