James Franco, amazing actor extraordinaire, played host on Saturday Night Live last night (the LAST SNL of the decade, his second time hosting) and shock of shocks — he was actually fantastic. The skits were about as funny as they have been in recent months (mostly meh) but Franco is such a great actor that he is able to work with any project at all (hello, he’s been killing it on the daytime drama General Hospital the last few weeks) and make it work. Here are a few of second-time host James Franco‘s SNL promo photos as featured on the show last night:
I’ve always thought that James Franco would make a good James Dean and, wouldn’t you know it, he actually played a cute James Dean in one of the skits last night. There was also a skit where Franco was tonguing a couple of SNL’s male actors … that’s some funny shizz right there ;) After the jump, check out some of my fave skits featuring host James Franco from last night’s SNL …
Vincent Price Christmas:
Christmas Tree Lot:
Digital Short: The Tizzle Wizzle Show:
And at last, SNL finally did a little something with MTV‘s Jersey Shore (3 weeks too late, I might add) and while it wasn’t terribly funny, I thought it was kinda cute. Nicole Snooki Polozzi made a guest appearance during The Weekend Update:
The only thing that could’ve been funnier was if Snooki herself actually guested on the ep … no such luck. All in all, tho, this was one SNL that I actually enjoyed thru and thru. James Franco was a fantastic host. I really liked most of his skits but I think the Kissing Family was my fave (with the Christmas Tree Lot as my second fave). Did you watch Franco last night? Which skits were your faves? What did y’all think of the show overall?
