‘Grease’ is the word for Oscars hosts James Franco & Anne Hathaway

James Franco has posted a fleeting few seconds of he and Anne Hathaway recreating the final number from the smash 1978 movie musical “Grease.”  Franco is bad boy Danny Rizzo (played onscreen by John Travolta) while Hathaway is good girl turned temptress Sandy (Olivia Newton-John in the movie) who tells him, “You’re the One That I Want.”

This video could be integrated into the opening number for Sunday’s Oscars which promises to take the twosome on a journey through movie history. The irony is that while “Grease” was the top-grossing movie musical of its time, it only contended for one Oscar, losing its Best Song bid for “Hopelessly Devoted to You” to the disco hit “Last Dance” from “Thank God Its Friday.”

And here is the original version with Travolta, Newton-John and company.
