The Salt Lake Art Center announced that that Renaissance man James Franco will not be attending the January 27 presentation of his work Three’s Company: The Drama at Salt Lake Art Center’s exhibition of Sundance Film Festival’s New Frontier. “With the Oscars so close can’t risk flying,” his manager said.
Franco was scheduled to attend tomorrow even though he knew he would be hosting the Oscars, but when the actor (and PhD candidate in English Literature at Yale) was actually nominated to win an award the friendly skies became not so friendly.
Franco has been nominated as best actor for his work in 127 Hours, the film about mountaineer Aaron Ralston trapped for five days in a canyon in southern Utah.
