Video of James Franco on the Colbert Report

James Franco Explains Why the Red Carpet and the Ladies Aren't Enough

James Franco got frank on the Colbert Report last night. When Stephen asked him why red carpets and the ladies aren't enough for the actor currently pursuing a PhD from Yale and other countless projects, James opened up about what drives his intellectual curiosities.

After James's controversial Oscar hosting gig, we wondered whether there were any more Francophiles out there; with news of his involvement in feature films, General Hospital, random art installations, and seemingly every prestigious grad program making headlines, Franco fatigue is in the air. This interview offers some insight into what makes James Franco tick, making him pretty likable again, in my opinion. What do you think?
