James Franco can add one more item to his already impressive resume.
The actor will star in a Ford Fusion Hybrid commercial – which also features actor Rob Riggle – during this Sunday’s Super Bowl, and it’s set to air between the coin toss and kickoff.
“Super Bowl commercials are such a big thing now, they’re almost mini-movies. So it sounded like it could be fun, and it was,” Franco tells PEOPLE.
“One of the concepts involved me kind of doubling certain things that Rob Riggle does in the first part of the piece. He [had] certain scenes like sitting on the couch with a Chihuahua and then my section I’m on the couch, but in a huge villa-style mansion. And instead of sitting with a Chihuahua, I’m sitting with a tiger,” explained Franco about his 60-second appearance.
