James Franco is sleeping in this morning after flying to Edmonton yesterday to take in the CFL's 98th Grey Cup. The actor became a fan of Canadian football after spending ample time in Canada filming the Planet of the Apes prequel. He became particularly fond of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, who would end up losing to Montreal, because of their intensely loyal fan base. Franco will spend most of today trying to get the green paint off, as the combination of oil based paint and frigid temperatures has wreaked havoc on his skin.

After taking in the Quidditch tournament at Yale last week, Franco has rekindled his interest in the Harry Potter books. He read the entire series in one sitting and is currently reaching out to producers to see if they are willing to give him the part of Lord Voldemort in part two of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Franco is aware that Voldermort has been played by Ralph Fiennes in every movie up until now, but feels his interpretation of Voldermort (a cross dressing hipster from the Lower East Side) is just what the series needs to finish on a high. If his lobbying is unsuccessful, he will settle for voicing Dobby, the house elf.

Unlike other big screen adaptations of board games, like Clue and the upcoming Battleship, Franco is not going to build a story around the basic elements of Sorry!

Franco believes he can master the technology necessary to make the hoverboard as he's a bit of an expert on the subject, having used the Sky Stick hoverboard in Spiderman 3.
