High hopes for James Franco on 'SNL'

Posted on

James Franco returns to SNL this week for the last show of 2009, and despite the rocky season, I’m optimistic: Franco has hosted before and done a solid job, plus he’s a naturally funny dude whose comedic style and sensibility lean toward goofy and Internet-friendly, which is SNL‘s jam.

Heh. This is exactly what the episode needs to do: Let Franco make fun of himself, give Fred Armisen the giggles, and remind everyone that there is such a thing as too much plaid.

Are you with me, PopWatchers? Could you watch this all day, like I could? What do you want to see Franco do?
