Here's the plot of the movie, which is scheduled for a December release, according to IMDB: "Set in the diamond district of New York City, Howard Ratner, a jewelry store owner and dealer to the rich and famous, must find a way to pay his debts when his merchandise is taken from one of his top sellers and girlfriend."

The film also stars Idina Menzel and Kevin Garnett as himself. 

Francesa spoke about his appearance in the movie during Tuesday's "Mike's On" show. 

"So I went in one day, and spent the day with Adam," Francesa said. "I went in and I shot two scenes with him. And two scenes took 14 hours. Their workdays are incredible, they really are. They shoot the scenes so many different times from so many different angles."

Francesa curses in the trailer, but he says that's not something that's a part of his typical personality. 

"I don't curse if I'm with mixed company or in public. I had to curse in the movie. I remember coming home and telling my wife ... and I told the kids that ... and they got the biggest kick out of that."
