In what was ostensibly not an act of performance art, James Franco said on Good Morning America this week that he would be teaching a class starting in January at Yale University, where he's enrolled as a Ph.D student.

But according to Yale authorities, Franco spoke too soon.

The Yale Daily News has more:


"As a grad student in our program, he would not ordinarily teach until his third year," [English Department Chair Michael] Warner said in an e-mail to the News. "[Franco] was referring to another project: a proposal for a college seminar that did not work out for this year."

Franco will still be a presence on campus, however. The News reports that Franco will have a hand in organizing a undergraduate film project.
