Why is it that James Franco seems to suck all the legitimacy out of everything he's in?

That's why! The answer to your question is contained within your question!

I clicked on this thread to post something very similar. I don't know why this guy keeps getting cast in roles.

Run with it...let's make this film. The entire film, directed by Apatow, should be about the rejection of the peaceful aliens by an orange-haired hair-club-for-men reject and the subsequent collapse of interstellar society due to anti-alien prejudice and ignorance. The eruption of aliens from the chests of the antagonists of the film is simply the natural result of refusing to allow them peaceful entry into one's society, resulting in their appropriately violent response to enter all the same. OPEN OR DIE!

I guess I'm in the minority here. I like him. He's funny.

Oh goddamnit, now Franco is ruining a classic scifi franchise? Can't he stick to dick and fart comedy and leave the serious scifi alone? He'd better die in the opening cut scene.

I still have high hopes for this.

Franco is ok. He was perfectly fine in Spiderman back in the day...

Oh yeah, back when he bragged about carrying, what was it 20+ units of college courses for his PhD in writing WHILE filming Spiderman?

You can't do that, it's simply not possible. You would have to work about 35 hours a day to do justice to that.

And, predictably, it later came out that Franco was quite literally sleeping through his college classes when one of his professors got mad at him for it and admitted they were pressured by the school administrators to pass him anyway with decent marks because of who he was.

Franco responded to the allegation, saying he didn't sleep through his classes, however, other students were witnesses too:

A professor at New York University, Josť Angel Santana, alleged that Franco did not earn his grades while attending that school, stating that Franco missed over 80% of his classes and only received high marks and a degree because of his celebrity status as an actor.

11-22-63 was good, as well. I'm not going to panic because of Franco. The film will stand or fall based upon its story and fan-service.

That is a pile of shit. I can speak from experience, having earned a PhD while working full time, and in fact spending several semesters classified as a full time student while working full time as well. It was utter, complete, absolute HELL and I didn't sleep through classes or work, either. I left the house at 7 in the a.m., returned on my way to class in the afternoon to grab a dinner from my wife, and didn't return home for good each day until late each night. My poor wife and three kids under three at the time didn't see me much at all, FOR YEARS, as I spent weekends working on coursework at the university library.

Screw him and his fake freaking degree, and anybody who earns a doctorate online can bite me as well. I spent more years just on my dissertation than some folks I know start to finish did 'earning' their toilet-paper-POS-online-doctorate, lol.

It was worth it, but it was HELL. Like chewing on broken glass. For years. In the rain. Uphill. Both ways.

Just rain? If it had been snow, that would have been something.
