Sorry, James Franco won't be dressing as Cher at the Oscars

Everyone in James Franco's circle is keeping mum about what's in store for the actor when he hosts the Academy Awards ceremony alongside Anne Hathaway on Feb. 27. But Bruce Vilanch, who will write jokes for the ceremony, is talking about what you won't see Franco doing.

"We had a great bit where James Franco was going to come on as Cher and be interrupted by (the real) Cher," Vilanch told Vulture. "But the song ('You Haven't Seen the Last of Me," from 'Burlesque') wasn't nominated, so she's not coming."

Tragic, we say.

Vilanch said that Hathaway will "sing and dance ... together (with Franco) and separately. And maybe even with other people. I'm trying to find something James Franco is bad at. And he does it all with one arm -- he really is Method. He actually got rid of his arm."
