James Franco has no fear when it comes to the Oscars

HollywoodNews.com: Even though Franco may be embarking on arguably the greatest endeavor of his short career, he still has no fear. Yes, initially Franco had a lot of reservations about hosting the Academy Awards, but those soon subsided.

“When [Oscar producer Bruce Cohen] asked me to host, I was very, very surprised, and my initial reaction was ‘No,'” Franco told Entertainment Weekly. “Then I thought about it and I thought, well, why not? Because I’ll look bad? Well, I don’t care.”

Even though he had naysayers, Franco went along with the decision anyway. “All my representatives were saying, ‘No!” He went on to say. “That always sparks something in me. So I said, ‘Yes, of course!’ Because that reaction that they have is based on conventional wisdom of what makes a good career. And that can be boring,” OMG reports.

Do you think Franco will do a good job hosting the Academy Awards? Let us know what you think.
