Vote to Bring Danny McBride and James Franco to Arcadia

By Purnell T. Cropper | March 8, 2011

Currently ranked in the top 100 for the most votes in the U.S., Arcadia University is competing to bring the premier of the movie Your Highness, to Glenside. Cast members Danny McBride and James Franco would appear at the event. The contest ends Monday, March 21, at 9 a.m. (Vote online.)

“We’ve been trying hard to get people to vote for Arcadia, and so far we have gone up more than 100 places in the ranking,” say Val Cozzens ’14, who started the campaign, and Dao La ’13. “Compared to the other colleges that we’re going up against, Arcadia is a small university. But if all Arcadians vote, we’ll have a chance of winning!”

According to, the story follows two princes “[who] must rescue the heir apparent’s fiancée before their kingdom is destroyed.”

“Thadeous (McBride) has spent his life watching his perfect older brother Fabious (Franco) embark upon valiant journeys and win the hearts of his people. Tired of being passed over for adventure, adoration and the throne, he’s settled for a life of wizard’s weed, hard booze and easy maidens. But when Fabious’ bride-to-be, Belladonna (Zooey Deschanel), gets kidnapped by the evil wizard Leezar (Justin Theroux).”
