Actor and filmmaker James Franco has canceled his April 29 appearance at the University of Buffalo due to a professional conflict.

The cancellation was confirmed Wednesday. Franco was scheduled to appear at the university as part of the UB Distinguished Speakers Series.

Brandon Stanton, creator of “Humans of New York”, will be the featured speaker for the April 29 event. Stanton started the street portrait blog as a photography project in 2010. HONY has since amassed 17.7 million followers on Facebook and 6.8 million followers on Instagram. The blog features snapshots of New Yorkers on the streets, along with short stories about their lives. In the past five years, it has expanded to include stories from five other countries.
