Looks like we don't have salary information. Sorry!
To be honest, I was kind of a shy kid growing up.
When I think of myself, I'm definitely... I'm not like a comedian.
I think my first big purchase was actually for my mom. She had one of those '90s TVs in her living room that's like a 10x10 brick, so I purchased her a flatscreen for her living room.
I'm a cat person.
I just know that it's smart for my career to carve my own path and do my own thing.
I can't say I was like a die-hard zombie fan, but I've definitely seen a few different zombie movies and TV shows.
I'm a small shifty kind of guy.
I'm not one of those people who are, like, always joking in person.
At this point, I feel like I can allow myself to be goofy and take more risks, and even if I do fall on my face, I know it's not the end of the world and at least I tried to do something different.
I don't just wanna be James Franco's little brother.
I'm a tough critic on myself.
As much as I love and respect my brother, I'm doing my best to distance myself from him and kind of show people that, even though we do look similar and have similar mannerisms, we are completely different.
For example, for me, my brother helped me get a manager, which I don't take for granted. It's tough getting a manager, let alone one that actually cares about you and is smart. But from there, no one's going to cast me just because I'm James Franco's little brother.
[observation, age 27, on playing teenage roles] Everyone always says, especially in the business, it's great to look a lot younger than you are for longevity's sake. But sometimes I just want to look my damn age and play a character my age. I don't want to play high school again.
