James Franco Talks About Casting Friends in 'Disaster Artist'

James Franco and his brother Dave Franco pose for a photo at their panel during the Vulture Festival LA on Saturday (November 18) at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood.

The brothers star together in the new movie The Disaster Artist, which James also directed.

Many of the cast members are friends of James‘, including Dave‘s wife Alison Brie and his longtime collaborator Seth Rogen.

“A lot of them were friends. Or fans of The Room. The one sort of insider guy that we knew that we wanted in the movie was Paul Scheer,” he told THR. “I was not aware of Paul and Jason Mantzoukas and June Diane Raphael‘s podcast How Did This Get Made? at the time. But Paul was at an early script reading and gave incredible notes. And we were just like, ‘Wow, this dude needs to be in the movie in some capacity.’”

“With the Bryan Cranston section, I had just worked with Bryan, and it was really fortuitous that we could have him in it. And it would be Bryan Cranston from Malcolm in the Middle before Breaking Bad! And I just thought, ‘Oh, this is perfect.’ So I really fought for that one,” he added.

FYI: James is wearing an Alternative Apparel t-shirt.

Dave Franco Says Brother James Stayed In Character While Directing 'The Disaster Artist'

James Franco flashes a smile alongside his younger brother Dave while attending a special screening of his latest film The Disaster Artist held at the Metrograph on Wednesday (November 14) in New York City.

The 39-year-old actor and Dave, 32, were joined by their co-star Ari Graynor, writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, as well as AnnaSophia Robb and Arturo Castro, who stepped out to show their support.

Dave recently opened up about James staying in character as Tommy Wiseau while he was also directing the flick, which hits theaters on December 8.

“There’s not much he can do that surprises me. Almost every day, a new person would come to the set, and I would have to prep them that they would not be interacting with James today. They would be interacting with Tommy,” Dave revealed (via Variety).

Seth Rogen. It took him about a week to get used to it,” Dave continued. “I remember at one point, he came up to me and said, ‘This is freaking me out and you’re his brother. How the fuck are you keeping a straight face through any of these takes?’ I remember Seth’s grandma came to set one day, and after a few hours, she finally asked, ‘Where’s James?’ Seth pointed to my brother, who was in the Tommy makeup. At that point, Seth’s grandma decided that she wasn’t going to like the movie.”

FYI: James is wearing rag & bone jeans. Ari is wearing a Longchamp skirt. Dave is wearing a JW Anderson shirt.

James Franco Reveals Why He Decided to Co-Host Oscars in 2011 with Anne Hathaway

James Franco is on the cover of Variety‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 39-year-old actor had to share with the mag:

On turning 40: “I realize, ‘James, you’re 40.’ I have achieved all the things that I dreamed when I was younger. And realizing, ‘Oh, those things are not going to fill the hole.’ Do fewer things, and do things that you really love, and give them the attention they deserve.”

On why he quit Instagram: “It’s very liberating. I just got rid of it. When I first got on, it just felt silly. I treated it like it was a joke. You get in that weird seductive space where it feels private, but it’s also public. And you get hooked on the reaction… It’s sort of the way I see people like the Kardashians. They are staking out new ground, and what these spaces are. They are making a lot of money off of it. What will happen if I do that? There was some photo I did. I wasn’t naked. I’m sure Rihanna has posted a bunch more risqué photos. It was just the attitude of the photo. It was sweaty. My hand was in my boxers. It just looked gross.”

On hosting the Oscars with Anne Hathaway: “At the time I justified it to myself. ‘This will be an experiment. This will be weird.’ Part of me was so uncomfortable with the attention of being nominated, but also fear of losing, because everybody was talking about Colin Firth. I mean, I shouldn’t have been doing it. Honestly, I think the biggest criticism of me, it seemed like I was high or low energy. In my head, I was trying to be the straight man. I guess I just went too far or came across as the dead man.”
