James Franco and 127 Hours

127hoursStewart interviews Academy award nominee James Franco in regards to his nomination for 127 Hours

As you likely know, the film depicts the true-life story of Aron Ralston, who was trapped will mountain climbing and had to amputate his arm in order to save his own life.   This film has garnered numerous awards and is sure to be incredible.

While his cinematic performances are notable, Franco's interviews are lackluster. Much like his performance hosting the Academy Awards (this post is back-dated), Franco's on-air counterpart does all of the heavy lifting.  Jon Stewart is a delight in this interview.
