Would you believe me if I told you that James Franco has yet another side project he’s working on? Well, believe it! Philosophy Time is his new educational channel which is dedicated to teaching viewers about — you guessed it — philosophy!

A modern renaissance man, Franco is always reaching out to try new forms of expression. The actor/filmmaker/poet/painter is never short on artistic outlets, yet he’s always trying his hand at something new. Perhaps best known for his acting, Franco has played American icons, such as James Dean and Allen Ginsberg, and he’s helped create some of the most quotable stoner films of our generation, but recently Franco has been focusing his efforts more on teaching, as we can see from his new Youtube channel’s aim.

The channel is run by Franco and Eliot Michaelson. Each installment features a discussion, based on a certain topic, between the hosts as well as a variety of guest professors.

With such films as Pineapple Express, This Is The End, and — my personal favorite — Sausage Party, it can be easy to forget just how dynamic Franco can be. Somewhere in between battling the end of the world, and taking drugs that allow him to interact with anthropomorphic food, Hollywood’s intellectual stoner also found the time to teach classes at NYU, UCLA and the University of Southern California. Franco is proof that even old adages like “those who can’t do, teach” have loopholes.


Interested in seeing just how dynamic James Franco really is? He’s about to make a movie about the making of the cult classic film The Room and it looks like an Oscar-winner!

I’m an English major at Montclair State University, with a minor in creative writing. I started writing short horror fiction when I was six years old, and hope to publish some original pieces some time in the near future. In addition to writing, I enjoy singing, drawing, and acting. Every two weeks, you can see me in my finest lingerie (and about two solid inches of makeup) acting in the Rocky Horror Picture Show with the Home of Happiness in Montclair, NJ. My passion in life is watching people slowly disintegrate their relationships, with others, over arguments like the "Taylor Ham vs. Pork Roll" debate. I enjoy long walks in the woods, and I've never seen a dolphin up close.
