WTF with Marc Maron

Episode 870 - James Franco

At some point after James Franco became a high-profile movie star, he found himself asking, "What if you get everything you want and nothing changes?" As James explains to Marc, that led to a re-engagement with art and academics, a stint on General Hospital, an infamous hosting experience on the Oscars, and many passion projects that he willed to fruition. Only now, with his new movie The Disaster Artist, which he wrote and directed, does James realize what he was chasing and what he has in common with The Room director Tommy Wiseau. This episode is sponsored by Orbi, Squarespace, and SimpliSafe.
