He's studied at UCLA, Columbia and NYU, but now Milk actor James Franco can add Harvard to his academic resumé – the former Freaks and Geeks star, 31, has been named the university's Hasty Pudding Man of the Year.

On Feb. 13, he'll be roasted by members of the nation's oldest undergraduate drama troupe, who traditionally dress in drag and doll up their guests of honor, too.

Festivities commence Thursday in chilly Cambridge, Mass., with Renée Zellweger getting the Hasty Pudding treatment as its Woman of the Year. Last year's honorees were good sports Christopher Walken and Charlize Theron.
