James Franco – actor, writer, director, producer, “selfie” auteur and ever lasting student – has been booked as a guest of the Accent Speakers Bureau. 

The Speakers Bureau was looking for someone in the entertainment industry with an interest in academia and Franco was eager to do it.

Well we think anyone would be eager to speak at this thing if they were being offered $85,000 to do it! That’s right Franco will receive $85,00 for his appearance. 

The event will be hosted by Foley, a veteran newspaper reporter and editor and master lecturer at UF’s College of Journalism and Communications. A Q-and-A session will follow his and Franco’s discussion.

Chairman Corey Flayman says “he hopes to have a mix of questions for Franco that balances his career in Hollywood with his studying and teaching experience at prestigious universities”.

“He has a lot of unique experience,” Flayman said. “I am excited he will be here to share that with students.”


Wow! Imagine being paid $85,000 for one hour of speaking about yourself! Sign us up.
