On the set of Annapolis, Franco and his costar Tyrese didn't get along, because on the second day of shooting, Tyrese was convinced that Franco delibertely punched him for real. Franco denies the claim, blaming his acting methods for his attitude on-set. James told GQ, "I take full blame for any problems on that film. If he had a bad experience working with me, I was probably a jerk. I was not purposely cruel to him, but I was probably so wrapped up in my performance that I was not as friendly as I could have been."
