Sundance Film Festival: James Franco and his 'Three's Company' installation

James Franco at the Sundance Film Festival

James Franco hit Park City, Utah, this weekend for the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, where the actor and upcoming Oscar host had no movie to promote -- but rather an interesting art project involving Janet, Chrissy and Jack.

Franco conceived an art installation at Main Street's Chefdance space, interpreting the raw human drama of '70s sitcom "Three's Company," wherein he re-created the characters' living room.

"There's a brown chenille couch for you to sit on, wicker coffee tables, fake plants and three faux bedroom doors where oh-so-many hijinks, blonds-are-dumb jokes and is-he-gay-or-isn't-he innuendo played out," Awards Tracker said of the space.

A Friday night party saw the likes of Eliza Dushku and Rick Fox, Anton Yelchin, Michael Rappaport and John Salley coming through for the experience.

Plenty of blond wigs were on hand to invoke some Suzanne Somers magic (which Franco himself partook in). Artist and filmmaker Carter, Franco's frequent collaborator, served as DJ.

At one point, Carter called Franco up to the stage to hype the crowd, and the "127 Hours" star seized the opportunity for some freestyle.

"James jumped up and just started singing," an onlooker told us, dropping lyrical gems like, "'I thought you found love, I thought you were love. You are not love. You are just a good ... you're a hot mess.'"

Do we smell a Franco trip-hop concept album coming? Give us your thoughts on keeping "Company" with the actor in the comments section below.

I am here at Sundance and saw his installation.
It's uninteresting and annoying. He should be doing a few things well, instead of trying to do and be everything, crappy.

I suppose this is a gossip column, so you are not accountable to assess the quality of the work, just talk about the "cool" things celebrities did.

I am sick of seeing all these James Franco write ups about Sundance, funny no one talks about the art
