It was not James Franco’s fault that he was a lousy host and was responsible for the disastrous Academy Awards show back in February. The fact is that he did not even want the gig and acted dull on purpose.

After four months of outburst on Twitter he criticized Oscar writer Bruce Vilanch in the August issue of the Playboy magazine with his first in-depth comments about what was seen as debacle of an Oscar show. Franco’s listless performance has drawn near-unanimous contempt.

In the recent interview he said that he did not want to do the show but he thought it had take some of the pressure off Fox Searchlight’s push to get him a Best Actor Oscar for his ‘127 hours’ as at the time he thought that no one had won an Oscar the year they has hosted the show. But, David Niven is the man who has won an Oscar while hosting the show.

In the same interview, he figured that he could handle the gig even though he was attending Yale and could not show up in the Los Angeles until few days before the show. He added that after seeing the material he told the show’s producers, Don Mischer and Bruce Cohen that he does not know why they have hire him, as he was not given anything, he just don’t think that the stuff was going to be good.

He thought that Anne has taken enthusiastic route and he has been trained as an actor to respond to circumstances to the people whom he was working with and not to force anything. He thought that he would be the straight man and she could be the other and that was how he was trying to do those lines. During the show, he tweeted that it was a cutting-edge way of reminding people that he didn’t write the stuff that he was saying.
