This was just leaked on James Franco’s Twitter feed. Deadline has learned this is an outtake from Sunday’s Oscar show:
Editor-in-Chief Nikki Finke - tip her here.

And here I was hoping to be spared the dance routines this year. Maybe we’ll get lucky and this will be the only one.
The Academy says one reason not to honor a casting director is that the show is already too long. They could get rid of these silly dance productions and add SIX award categories and still cut down on the time and tedium factor.
So they’re basically opening The Oscars will a rejected bit from Glee?
Who thought this was a good idea again?
How desperate is Hathaway to be in a muscially based film? She’s doing her damnedest to sing at the Oscars like someone placed an “Audition” sign on the red carpet.
Since when is Franco even muscially inclinded? His slack style humor has nothing to do with this type of opening.
Somewhere Snow White and Rob Lowe are getting ready to laugh their coconuts off.
Actually she has already done one it’s called “Ella Enchanted” and she has a great voice. I think the numbers are fun. Better than an endless display of talking heads. After all it’s called “Entertainment” for a reason.
Oh Lawd, you just gave Ryan Murphy the idea to do a full-on Gleeeease episode.
Wow, I was excited to watch the Oscars but rehashing “You’re the one that I want” seems so out of touch and lazy to me I am worried their stunt casting is going to turn out be a dud. At the very least they could perform the song from movie that was actually nominated for an Oscar… good to know when to take a bathroom break though.
Why can’t we just hold something back before it’s time. Do we need everything on the internet. I find the person making this and then distributing a spoliler. I know Deadline will distribute it and I dont fault them-that is their duty. Enough with exposing everything
just to cheat people of a their time.
Leaked right…. leaked. It should of stayed secret
If the Oscar telecast is anything like the Franco/Hathaway commercials (“Wardrobe malfunction” jokes? Really?), this has D-I-SASTER written all over it.
Looks like they are on a set. This is probably a clip…hopefully a short one.
This isn’t a leak. It’s a professionally edited bit of footage, made to look like a 70′s home movie. This is viral marketing. You just gave The Oscars some free press.
ok clip.. but I love the music. I assume James wrote it during down time between takes?
Haha, would not surprise me.
Remember when the Oscars was a surprise and not analyzed to death beforehand? How would we act & react if we were to see Billy Crystal’s performances beforehand? If his musical numbers and (the original one or two, at least) video mash-ups of himself inserted into films were shown beforehand — and crudely? Let’s all just calm down a bit, okay?
the ’08 Oscars show w / Jon Stewart hosting was the last great Oscars ceremony. since then, it’s been downhill from there and it’s been flasbacks of the ’89 show w/ Rob Lowe and Snow White dueting
You need a solid stand-up comic to host this show. Doing lame Sonny & Cher variety show sketches is not going to be enough to carry this show with the world’s most unforgiving live audience.
I thought Franco didn’t have an official Twitter feed. Am I missing something?
