Three's Company With James Franco?

Ok, get this, kids.

The worst sitcom ever -- except for My Mother The Car -- has become James Franco's obsession to the point where he's threatening to take it to the stage and/or big screen.

You see, Franco just did a Three's Company-related art installation, and the original show's creators were impressed with the seriousness of his vision.

So now he's got the OK to take it to other media!

Three's Company the movie, as done by an Oscar nominee?

Funny, I always thought that show was to screwball comedy as Cheez Whiz is to haute cuisine.

To my jaded little eyes, it was loud and obvious and hideously unfunny.

But maybe Franco can get Amy Adams and Helena Bonham Carter -- and himself, of course -- and the result will totally rock the Oscars.

Next up, how about Freaks and Geeks, The Movie?

Worst sitcom ever???? Uh, wrong! Anyways, as much as I love Three's Company I think it should be left alone. It wouldn't work on the big screen and a lot of the story lines wouldn't work in the present day. A guy that has to pretend to be gay so he can live with 2 girls? Wouldn't work today.

Franco should play the Don Knotts role, and get Ryan Reynolds to play the John Ritter role - which demands a hunky actor with a hairy chest, after all!

Well, no, he performed it live at the Sundance Film Festival 2011, and got quite the rave reviews and much press. Apparently it was quite the coup de grace and the must-see Event. So, short of any videos posted on youtube, you'll just have to take my word for it.

I just realized why Franco's interested. John Ritter played a guy who pretended to be gay!

Is James trying to destroy all his Oscar buzz?

This is just about the saddest thing since the Dukes of Hazzard movie.
