The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson

There is a big movie out today: "Oz the Great and Powerful." It's a prequel to "The Wizard of Oz." I'm thinking this is a little risky making a prequel to that movie. It is an American icon. That's like the French making a prequel to the Statue of Liberty.

I hope this movie isn't some hipster version of "The Wizard of Oz" where the Tin Man gets taken to the recycling center and the Scarecrow is exchanged for a sparkly vampire.

James Franco plays the man who eventually becomes "Oz." He's a conman who tries to trick gullible people into thinking he has special talents. I don't know what he does in the movie.

Franco's performance is already generating Oscar talk. As in people saying, "Hey, isn't that the guy who ruined the Oscars a couple of years ago?"

I feel bad for James Franco, being remembered as the guy who ruined the Oscars. Halfway through he realized that the audience hated him, and then he just gave up.
