James Franco to Visit a College Campus–For Once, Not as a Student

James Franco, perpetual student, loves college campuses. Do college campuses love James Franco? In an effort to forcibly make the film a cult hit, Universal Pictures has announced that a college will host the world premiere of Your Highness, the punnily historical/stoner comedy starring Franco and Natalie Portman. Portman likely has better things to do, but Franco–who’s always game to promote a project, witnessed by his failed-camp advertisements for the Oscars with co-host Anne Hathaway–will be at whatever school casts the most votes. Maybe he’ll do a tour while he’s there: state schools seeking that Yale glow, this is your shot to snare a celebrity student!
