James Franco stopped by “The Tonight Show” Friday (March 14), where he and host Jimmy Fallon got to chatting during a commercial about mutual friend Horatio Sanz, which led into a fun reminiscence on Fallon’s part about “breaking” during “Saturday Night Live” sketches — which Franco points out Fallon was kind of known for.

“You always cracked up!” says Franco. “We were just watching ‘cowbell’ … I think you helped make ‘cowbell’ by cracking up.”

“I was out of my league, I had just started on the show. I had never played with geniuses that funny before. Will Ferrell is an insane man,” says Fallon.

Below, Franco talks about all the various things he does, including putting his Master’s degree in poetry to work by writing a book of poems.

Is there anything James Franco can’t do?
