James Franco - James Franco To Sing And Dance At Oscars?

James Franco plans to "sing and dance" at the forthcoming Oscars.

The '127 Hours' actor - who is hosting the event on February 27 alongside 'Love & Other Drugs' star Anne Hathaway - has confirmed he may do more than just present the awards and wants to entertain as well.

He said: "You got Anne Hathaway, who is the youngest host ever, that is new. There might be some singing, there might be some dancing."

The 32-year-old star is particularly busy at present with a number directing and acting jobs in the pipeline.

He told Hollyscoop: "I just did a movie, I just directed a film that I also acted in about the American poet Hart Crane, 'The Broken Tower', that is the next one. I guess the next two released will be 'Your Highness' and 'Caesar'."

James recently revealed he initially said no to hosting the Oscars because he was so surprised to be offered.

He said: "I was very, very surprised, and my initial reaction was 'No.' Then I thought about it and I thought, 'Well, why not? Because I'll look bad?' Well, I don't care.

"I'm happy to take the criticism. Even if it's 'The Worst Oscars Ever,' I don't care. It's one night of the year."
