    Prof. James Franco Spills All! On His NYU Students and New Movie

    Is there anything James Franco can't do? (Except maybe host the Oscars well?)

    The multi-tasking actor has taken the big and small screen by storm, earned multiple college degrees, is recording an album and gets props for his charity work. Oh, and he's teaching a class at New York University, too.

    James was honored by amfAR at their annual Inspiration Gala last night, and said he's already met with his lucky grad students:

    "I haven't started teaching yet but I met with my students and we're gearing up for the fall," he told E! News at the Museum of Modern Art.

    Also on Professor Franco's agenda is putting on another multimedia play like he did at the university back in May.

    "In November, there will be another production similar to the one that we did [before]," he told us. "It will be different. We will be using a lot of the ideas behind, with the digital technology and the live performance and all of those ideas, but the content will be completely different."

    James also shared that he bent over backwards to attend the charity gala, where he chatted up fellow guest Kesha inside.

    "I went through a lot of trouble to be here tonight," he explained. "I'm filming in L.A. at the moment so I flew out for the night to be here."

    Michael Kors was also honored last night and brought along Heidi Klum as his date, while Courtney Love and Jennifer Hudson performed.

    None of them shed any light, though, on the big mystery of the night: When does James Franco get any sleep?
