James Franco: Yale's Newest T.A.?

If some lucky Yale students have trouble focusing this fall, it's probably because of their
high-profile TA, actor James Franco.

Franco talked to People Magazine about his passion for learning this weekend. He also confirmed he will be attending Yale for his PhD and that he hopes to become a teaching assistant.

"I love school," Franco told People. "I go to school because I love being around people who are interested in what I'm interested in and I'm having a great experience."
