OSCAR NIGHT: ARON RALSTON'S METHOD ACTING TIP

To make James Franco's portrayal of Aron Ralston [as the injured climber in the Oscar nominated film 127 Hours] as accurate as possible, Ralston told [film director Danny] Boyle to have Franco recite lyrics from the jam band Phish, Ralston's favorite band."

-- From "The ins and outs of Oscar Nominees" by Michael Machosky in the  Pittsburgh Tribune-Review
