Stephen Colbert Hilariously Stages Career Intervention for James Franco: 'We All Love You'

By
Stephen Colbert wants James Franco to take a break from his "insane" work schedule.
The Late Show host staged a hilarious career intervention while interviewing the 38-year-old actor on Thursday.
"Why do you not want a free moment because that's when the demons come?" Colbert jokingly asked after listing some of Franco’s 60 projects for the year. "Why don't you take a moment to breathe James Franco?"
Franco admitted that he may be addicted to working.
“I think I have a problem,” the Why Him? star lightheartedly confessed before revealing that he’s “trying to slow down.”
Colbert went on to expose his alleged motivation for having Franco on the show.
"This is not actually a TV show," warned the late-night talk show host. "This is an intervention, James Franco. We all love you. Please lock the door."
"You're not leaving until you drop one of these projects coming up," Colbert said amid audience laughter. "You got to slow down for the holidays, right?"
Franco confirmed that he plans on spending the holidays with his mom and younger brothers, Dave and Tommy Franco.
That said, being the eldest has its awkward moments. Although Franco assured Colbert that his siblings look up to him, he’s the only one in the bunch who’s not in a "serious relationship."
"Davy, the youngest, is engaged," Franco explained. "He's gonna get married early next year, and Tom's in a serious relationship, but I'm not. So I'll be going back and they will be with their girlfriends."
Thanks to his brothers, Franco is feeling a little pressure to settle down.
"Tom's girlfriend, Iris, is from Mexico and she said there's a saying there that if the younger brothers or the younger siblings get married before the oldest, that the oldest never gets married," he shared.
Meanwhile, Colbert quipped that Franco should make marriage his "61st project."
"I'm working on it. I’m putting it out there," Franco said, adding, "I'm gonna pay you for therapy too, don't worry."
Even though he has yet to find that special someone, Franco does get a little practice popping the question in the upcoming romantic comedy, Why Him?, co-starring Bryan Cranston.
The Breaking Bad alum told ET that shooting with Franco was the "most fun" he's ever had on a film set.
