[Via MTV.Com] Most actors wouldn't write and record an Ep of Motown-inspired songs even as they're shooting a gargantuan Disney tentpole, but then again, most actors aren't James Franco. So how did Daddy, a band Franco formed with schoolmate Timothy O'Keefe, come about? The group's artist statement explains their motivation thusly: "to push beyond the sonic space of music into the surrounding ecology. Daddy investigates the territories of film/video, installation, and performance while simultaneously exploring the connections that form between them."

"Can't Say Goodbye" is the third video released from the Ep, and it certainly packs an emotional punch, especially when you understand the traumatic event that inspired it. Franco granted MTV.com the exclusive video for the song, plus a chat about its very personal origins and whether we'll ever see the Oscar nominee (and onetime host) sing on the big screen.
