"[Wiseau is] unnaturally cut [and] he's incredibly pale. He looks like a muscular corpse," Franco explained. "But I had to depict the making of those scenes, so I started the salads for that and then it just rolled into this and I was like, 'All right, I'll keep it up for the 70's clothes.'"
As for The Deuce, Franco wasn't just acting in the sex scenes. For two episodes in the first season, he also served as the director -- and according to the 39-year-old star, everyone treats those scenes with more respect and dignity than most would believe.
"The truth is, you want to be really professional in those things," Franco shared. "No goofy rituals, it's [just] business, everybody up front and honest with each other."
