Actor James Franco has been hired to narrate a documentary about architects Charles and Ray Eames after his former college professor suggested he would be perfect to voice the film.
The 127 Hours star has signed up as the voice behind director Jason Cohn's Eames: The Architect & The Painter after UCLA historian Thomas Hines put the pair together, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Franco took the professor's Social & Cultural History of Los Angeles class when he attended the Los Angeles college between 2006 and 2008.
