With a career spanning almost 20 years, James Franco is a household name in the world of film and television. Never one to do the expected, Franco has played roles spanning just about every cinematic genre, from dramas to irreverent comedies. James Dean, Spider-Man, 127 Hours, and Pineapple Express are just a few of the films that make up Franco’s eclectic and often eccentric role choices.

Most recently, Franco made another surprise move when he decided to make The Disaster Artist, a film that chronicles the life of film director Tommy Wiseau, the man behind the cult classic, The Room. While prepping for the film’s release, Franco came to SiriusXM’s Sway in the Morning and gave a thorough explanation for his heavily varied filmography. Watch below:
