"He told a friend of mine who then sent a message along to me," Bill explained. "For a moment it was like, what could James Franco play that doesn't feel like 'Where's Waldo?' I really thought about it for a second, and nothing made sense."

"I think he thinks this somehow involves some big rejection of the idea. It wasn't that," he added in his defense. "If it had made sense, and frankly if I had called and said 'do you want to play that vampire from that country,' it would have involved hanging around for two months in a scene with 80 people, and I don't know if he really would have wanted to do it."
