James Franco's Silver Sundance Interview - Exclusive!

James Franco's Silver Sundance Interview - Exclusive!

James Franco flashes a smile while greeting fans at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival on Saturday (January 22) in Park City, Utah.

The 32-year-old actor was super patient and gracious, spending half an hour taking photos with everyone.

JustJared.com had the chance to sit down with James at Silver, a restaurant-lounge that will be hosting the festival’s top films.

When asked about his upcoming Oscars co-hosting gig, James said, “All I’m allowed to say is I’m singing and dancing!”

“One of the producers at the Oscars saw a YouTube clip of me singing with this artist named Kalup Linzy,” he added. “And the producer was like, ‘Maybe James would be willing to have a couple of singing lessons.’ But whatever, I think I sounded pretty good with Kalup!”

James also dished on his Sundance film, Three’s Company: The Drama, which is a remake of the popular 70s sitcom but with a twist.

“We worked to make it more dramatic as well as we could. [The original episodes are] written in such a way where it’s like, set up, set up, joke. And so we really tried to work against that to see if we could transform it, to see if we could kind of point at other things that were being implied in the jokes and stuff that’s really underneath,” he shared.
