Be Careful What You Wish For

James Franco, the weird-looking-yet-women-like-him actor from the Spiderman movies and every Judd Apatow movie ever made, has canceled the commencement address he was to give at UCLA next week. The stated reason for his late cancellation is that it conflicts with his shooting schedule---but it's far more likely that he jumped ship due to pressure from a group of students who didn't think Franco was an appropriate choice for the esteemed presentation. After all, Franco is only 31 years old and just graduated last year, twelve years after he first enrolled. In short, many consider him to be more of a peer than a role model able to impart the kind of wisdom and advice associated with a commencement address. But worry not, UCLA complainers, your replacement speaker has been secured: Brad Delson, lead guitarist for Linkin Park, will now assume the role.

I don't think this is what the UCLA students had in mind.
