James Franco wouldn't make a good drug dealer: 'I hate business'
Appearing on "Conan" on Thursday (Nov. 21) to promote his new film "Homefront," in which he plays, you guessed it, a drug dealer, he told host Conan O'Brien why he didn't think he'd be able to make it work in the drug biz. "I think is my third, I probably played a few other drug dealers at some point, but I play on in 'Pineapple Express,' one in 'Spring Breakers' and now one here, but no, I would not be a good drug dealer. You know, if you put aside the high, all of the glamorous murders, the addiction -- you know all that, all the unlawful activity, it's just like a business, right? I hate business. I don't want to, like, keep track of my inventory..."
And it's not just the business acumen that Franco find himself lacking. "Also, he's a manufacturer, the guy in the movie," he says. "Like, I was horrible in chemistry. I'm the sidekick on 'Breaking Bad.' Like, I don't know how to do it."
Well, thankfully that's been settled.
