Hey Bruins! Your Commencement Speaker is a Stoner

Congrats Bruin grads! Hope you have an awesome commencement when the actor who just graduated from your school give the big-time, motivating speech of the day! And not just any actor — but the one who played the stoner in Pineapple Express!

Okay, all sarcasm set aside, I believe James Franco is a respectable guy. Eloquent, a great actor (he did, after all, score a Golden Globe nom for that role in Pineapple Express) and hell, damn good looking. His only downside might be the fact that he went to UCLA. (Ha! Buuurn!) But didn’t you nab Bill Clinton and Ariana Huffington as speakers once? (I mean, they backed out, no surprise, but still).

Anyway, it’s not just me who thinks the Bruins made a funny flub-up in choosing a commencement speaker…because there’s a Facebook group. “UCLA Students Against James Franco as Commencement Speaker

Ah well, you Bruins figure it out (since you won’t have any reason to watch March Madness anymore…double burn!). Meanwhile, I commend you for upgrading from the 2005 commencement speaker….
