“Paul Thomas Anderson was getting ready to make ‘The Master’ and he called me and we met … When he started talking about the role he said ‘Do you feel like you can do this?’ And I said ‘Yeah, totally. Look, I think you’re like the best American director. I feel confident. I know I can do this.’ And he said to me ‘But I want this to scare you. I want this role, going on this journey to scare you.’ And I was like ‘Scare?! I know I can do it.’ And so, incredible movie, needless to say I didn’t get the part. I guess I wasn’t scared enough or something, or whatever reason I didn’t get it.”

 James Fucking Franco, talking about how he was just, you know, too confident for “The Master.” Just keep telling yourself that, James. You’re a terrible jackal. [NYMag.com]
