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?"

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 OrbiSquarespace, and SimpliSafe.
