College Student Is A No Show

[NationalEnquirer] What movie star/college student has been rattling the cages of his fellow undergraduates because he never shows up to class? The actor regularly sends his assistants in his place and has them record the lecture for him to review at a later date!

    Franco? The guy in the picture looks JUST like him. LOL.

  • Marina

    James Franco. There’s a picture of him sleeping on some kind of ceremony at Columbia.

  • letskeepitlight

    James Franco. That pic does look like him. Plus I remember a picture out there of him sleeping in a class.

    • PandoraWolf

      Yeah, but he WAS there!

      I don’t think what the guy is doing is even that bad, as long as his assistants aren’t disturbing anyone else’s studies. I have heard of “normal” people sending others to record lectures or take notes. Why should this affect them or their grade in any way? Isn’t that why they are IN class? Their OWN education?

    But Franco isnt in undergrad

  • yepimbored

    Franco is getting his Ph.D so it’s not him.

  • wpolochick

    A Jonas or Zefron?

  • Megley

    Not Franco, who actually attended class when an undergrad.

  • lindseyann

    The picture isn’t a clue.

      Also, I know he’s getting a bunch of degrees, so he might be an undergrad in one of his many subjects…not too sure though.

      • GingerNaps

        That’s my understanding as well….that he’s taking numerous degrees simultaneously (which in my estimation is ridiculous). Education isn’t primarily about the grades and diplomas, and clamoring through a bunch of programs at once seems self-defeating and narcissistic.

  • next please

    Spencer Pratt

  • iknowww

    movie star? lol!

  • CurlEgirl

    Didn’t Taylor Lautner say he was going to college??

    • pumpkin

      “Rattling their cage”?
      Famous werewolf, Taylor Lautner is supposedly in college now. This is my guess.

  • Tru Tru2

    Taylor, I thought he said something about going to school too.

  • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

    And why would his fellow college students care? The pic and the way the blind was written seems to imply that he’s tired or lazy. But maybe it’s that he doesn’t want the attention from people ogling him, asking for autographs, presenting scripts, etc. Our maybe his schedule doesn’t permit attending at specific times.
    As long as he’s the one that shows up for the tests I don’t see what the big deal is.

    • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

      *or maybe his schedule…

    • KWDragon

      As a college professor, I certainly see what the big deal is. You have to participate in class to learn something. During my undergrad years, a soon-to-be washed-up NFLer was in some classes and we NEVER saw him (yet he passed and kept playing). If a student is taking the time to attend a class, s/he has the right to expect everyone else will as well. If someone famous or otherwise tried this in my class, s/he would fail.

      • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

        Understood. Yet many have a policy more lax than yours. Sign up, here’s your syllabus, attend class or not but be sure to turn in the work when it’s due and take the tests I give.
        And I don’t think students should feel it’s a “right” that others show unless there’s a group project and it involves an absent member.

      • pumpkin

        I’m a professor and even if I didn’t have an attendance policy, there’s no way I would let this fool’s assistants into my classroom.

        I can understand the students being annoyed. Big shot Celebrity who’s probably bragging about going to college can’t even bother going to class. At the very least, I’d spend a lot of time rolling my eyes about it.

      • FamousPeopleDoStupidThings

        Hmm, I understand this a little better now. I was looking at it pragmatically but it sounds as if they’re interpreting this as an entitlement issue – maybe he really is an a*h*, i.e., a braggart and a big shot. I, too, would feel resentment towards another who thinks they’re above doing the hard work that’s involved to achieve a goal. Geesh, (like everyone else) I’ve known people in my life that act the same way and yes, it’s *very* irritating.

        Thank you, Pumpkin! :))

      • pumpkin

        I wrote above that I thing this is Taylor Lautner and the “rattling cages” description is for the benefit of the bling (’cause he’s a werewolf). I would guess the other students aren’t more than just mildly annoyed.

        :)

      • pumpkin

        Meant “blind” instead of “bling.”

      • PandoraWolf

        The class in question might be so big that the professor doesn’t even notice!

        “this fool’s assistants” — ha! I’d love to take a class of yours. I like your attitude!

      • pumpkin

        Reading BG is a great way to avoid grading papers!

      • boobookittyluv

        lol ! Professor Pumpkin.

      • redstilettos

        I had an acquaintance in college who would show up on the first few days, take the midterm, turn in papers, be there for tests, etc but that was about it and still get a good grade. He was one of those folks who was just a good test taker. Those people do exist.

    • GingerNaps

      I too would relish being in Professor Dragon’s and Professor Pumpkin’s courses.

  • fiendy

    I can’t think of who else is an undergrad. But if the kid can pass the class without participating and there are some classes where you are just a face in a sea of 500 students, then great.

  • dee123

    Got no other guess: Franco.

  • 718mom

    James Franco

  • summer345

    Franco!

  • saragroomsell

    i saw jake gyllenhaal looking “college-like” last weekend in NYC.

  • CheshireKitty

    A professor is suing NYU for reportedly firing him for giving James Franco a D… According to the article (link below), Franco missed 12/14 classes, and thus earned a D…
