Dave Franco Strategy On Sets Is To 'Play It Straight'

Check out these sharp pics of Dave Franco for Mr. Porter’s The Journal.

Here’s what the 29-year-old actor had to share:

On his future plans: “That’s the dream. When you’re able to attach your friends to a project – ideally one that you’ve written, produced and directed – then there’s that feeling of control in an industry that can often seem as if it’s operating outside of your sphere of influence. That’s why I love what guys like Seth are doing. They’re taking things into their own hands. They’re gonna run this town one day.”

On if he feels intimidated: “Totally! Absolutely. Especially on comedy sets. I’m not a joke-a-minute guy; my strategy is just to play it straight. And I’m surrounded by these people for whom comedy is just in their blood. But when you work with these actors who are so inherently funny, you can’t fail. They’ll turn whatever you say into gold.”

On his respect for Seth: “He has a hand in everything. Acting, directing, producing… and not just in comedy. He’s in the new Steve Jobs movie, too. I have huge respect for how hard he’s working.”

    He seems much more low key and down to earth than his older brother who’s a complete egomaniac. Don’t see why he’s sucking up to Rogen that much in this interview though.

    what an idiot. so people should only hire their friends instead of people who cana ctually do their job?

  • Vy Nguyen

    Wow, 29? I didn’t realize he’s that old. Yeah, I agree with @disqus_MWFVDNvScY:disqus. Why the need to try and latch on to Seth? He just seems desperate to be part of that group.
