According to Fox News, Franco is currently studying writing at New York University and Columbia University. Last year, GalleyCat peeked inside one of Franco’s creative writing classes.

Here’s more from the article: “At age 30, [Franco] takes his writing career seriously, and has even turned down acting work to continue with his education. Publishing also runs in the family. Franco’s mom, Betsy Franco, is a well known bestselling children’s book author.” (Via Gawker)
