James Franco Got A 'D' In Acting Class

James Franco is enrolled in several graduate programs, and he is not doing great in one of them.

He got a D in his NYU acting class, Showbiz411 reports:

"I did the work, I did well in everything else," he said. But the acting teacher probably felt uncomfortable with a working well known actor in his class. It was not the norm. Also, as Franco pointed out, he missed a lot of classes because he was shooting "127 Hours."

This fall Franco started working towards a PhD in English at Yale and began studying art at the Rhode Island School of Design.

He has attended Brooklyn College for fiction writing and North Carolina's Warren Wilson College for poetry. Last year he was snapped sleeping at a lecture at Columbia, where he was in the MFA program for creative writing.

'Howl' opens Friday.
