Apparently, nothing is sacred to James Franco. Or everything is. Either way, I'm okay with it because it results in him doing things like enrolling in four graduate degree programs simultaneously, volunteering himself as a guest star on "General Hospital," posing in drag and directing creatively-named short films. (You'll have to Google that last one to get the NSFW title.)
His latest project? "Three's Company: The Drama," which is described in a press release from the Sundance Institute as "a multi-media examination of the classic '70s sitcom."
The release goes on:
"Television has undoubtedly shaped our world: our increased exposure to dramatic entertainment, the shapes of our houses, the shape of the time in our day. In this piece James Franco hopes to pull television from the box and view it from 'a slightly oblique perspective.'"
I'm not sure what that means, but I'm hoping it will lead to utterly absurd over-analysis of Jack's relationship with Chrissie and Janet, Mr. Roper's homophobia, Larry's misogyny, proto-cougar Mrs. Roper, the addition of Don Knotts to the show, the decor of the Regal Beagle, the dynamics of '70s sitcoms, canned laughter and why Suzanne Somers now takes upwards of 60 vitamins a day and injects estrogen directly into her [redacted].
Oh, and it wouldn't hurt Franco to include this "Rear Window"/"Three's Company" mash-up:
