Among his other 2007 projects were Good Time Max, which Franco wrote, directed and starred in.
The movie premiered at the 2007 Tribeca Film Festival and tells the story of two talented brothers who take very diverse paths in life, one going on to become a doctor whilst the other sibling (Franco) experiences unemployment and uses drugs.
The actor chose to cast himself in that role because, "It was really just a process of elimination.
I was better suited for this role than the responsible surgeon".
Franco is also known for his work on television; his first prominent acting role was the character Daniel Desario on the short-lived ensemble comedy-drama Freaks and Geeks (1999–2000), which developed a cult following.
Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times, in review of the film, wrote: "Franco is a nice match for him [Penn] as the lover who finally has enough of political life".In another interview, Franco said: "When we were doing Freaks and Geeks, I didn't quite understand how movies and TV worked, and I would improvise even if the camera wasn't on me ... Ken Tucker of Entertainment Weekly wrote: "Franco could have walked through the role and done a passable Dean, but instead gets under the skin of this insecure, rootless young man." Franco achieved worldwide fame and attention in the 2002 superhero film Spider-Man, when he played Harry Osborn, the son of the villainous Green Goblin (Willem Dafoe) and best friend of Spider-Man (Tobey Maguire).So I was improvising a little bit back then, but not in a productive way." To immerse himself in the role, Franco went from being a non-smoker to smoking two packs of cigarettes a day, bleached his dark brown hair blond, and learned to ride a motorcycle as well as play guitar and the bongos. Originally, Franco was considered for the lead role of Spider-Man/Peter Parker in the film.In May 2010, he was cast to star in Rupert Wyatt's million budgeted Rise of the Planet of the Apes, a reboot of the Planet of the Apes series which was released on August 5.Franco starred alongside Winona Ryder in The Letter, originally entitled The Stare, directed by Jay Anania.
