One has to wonder when James Franco ever sleeps. Hollywood’s most educated thespian -- perhaps best-known for his Oscar-nominated turn as the guy who cut off his own arm in Danny Boyle's “127 Hours” – has famously juggled acting on soap operas and in blockbusters (think the upcoming “Rise of the Apes”) with doctoral studies in English and film at Yale, hosting the Academy Awards, creating art exhibitions, albums, a short story collection, conceptual and visual art. In Los Angeles on June 20, he’ll unveil his latest endeavor – directing and starring in an experimental biopic of the tortured, gay American poet Hart Crane – at the Los Angeles Film Festival, which runs from June 16-26.
