Wednesday in Washington Square Park

On Wednesday morning, James Franco rose bright and early to get to Washington Square Park. He studied the moves of Gill, infamous among chess circles, as Gill destroyed player after player for three straight hours before stepping up to the board to play. After an immediate and crushing defeat, Franco went directly to Borders where he bought six books on chess, chess strategy and chess theory. He spent his afternoon reading them, beginning to end, under a tree, while simultaneously whittling a bishop piece out of a nearby twig.
