Is there anything that James Franco can’t do?
The actor/writer/director/professor/artist can now add Super Bowl commercial star to his ever-expanding resume, with news that Franco will star in the Ford Motor Company’s Super Bowl ad this Sunday, Feb. 2.
Franco will star alongside former “Daily Show” correspondent Rob Riggle in the 90-second “Nearly Double” commercial for the Ford Fusion Hybrid and, if the teaser released is any indication, things are going to get a little weird.
“Hi, I’m Rob Riggle, and this is no ordinary commercial,” Franco says while sitting next to a roaring tiger. How it’ll all turn out remains to be seen, but expect Riggle to carry the first 30 second, with Franco stepping in for the final 60.
Super Bowl XLVIII begins at 6:30 p.m. ET/3:30 p.m. PT on FOX. The full Ford commercial will air between the coin toss and the kick off.
