James Franco will be adding one more element of fantastic-ness to his already impressive resume-Super Bowl ad star!

According to PEOPLE, the actor will star in a Ford Fusion Hybrid commercial featuring actor Rob Riggle this Sunday. It is scheduled 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 told 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.

This is not, however, the actor's first time in a Super bowl commercial.

"It's funny, I started my professional career as an actor on a Super Bowl commercial. It was the first job that ever paid me as an actor, and now here I am in a full circle," admitted Franco about his first ad: a Pizza Hut commercial.

And although the actor will be making a big appearance for Ford Fusion, he admitted that he will not be watching the game as anticipated. Instead, he will be at the University of Southern California teaching, another job he takes much pride in doing.

"I teach Mondays, but this coming week I have to teach the class on Sunday. So all of my students are showing their devotion to cinema by going to class instead of watching the Super Bowl," Franco said with a laugh.

"We might have the class watch the commercial only because it goes on before the kickoff, so maybe we'll watch that and get into class."
