James Franco drops out of Broadway debut
But, since a lackluster Oscar performance, Franco has withdrawn a bit from the spotlight. Now he's withdrawing even further: he's pulled out of the Broadway production of "Sweet Bird of Youth." He was slated to star opposite Nicole Kidman in the Tennessee Williams play.
That isn't to say Franco is slacking off. He's currently filming "Oz: The Great and Powerful," taping more episodes of "General Hospital" and completing a doctorate in English at Yale.
