    Actor/Oscar host/General Hospital star James Franco is currently pursuing a PhD in English from Yale and has decided that's not enough academia for him. The smarty pants Franco is also enrolling in a second doctorate program at the University of Houston.

    "James Franco was scheduled to enter the PhD program in Literature and Creative Writing in Fall 2011, but he requested a deferral for an additional year, which the faculty granted, so he is now scheduled to begin doctoral work here in fall 2012," a spokesperson for the school told UsMagazine.com.

    Franco got his undergraduate degree from UCLA in 2008. Two years later, he got a MFA degree in writing from Columbia. He's also taken filmmaking courses at NYU and is teaching a course about himself in LA, too.

    Ladies, is James Franco your dream man?
