Today In James Franco News
A friend texted me last night, "Your imaginary boyfriend Joel McHale is talking about your imaginary boyfriend James Franco".
Yes, it's true! Like Cameron Mathison's thong before him, James Franco's Franco made his way to The Soup and Joel McHale asked the questions we've all wondered: why is he doing this? And how badly does Franco want to make out with Jason?
Edit: HUGE thanks to Katie for sending me the clip!
Here's what we know about the character James Franco is playing on General Hospital: he is an artist obsessed with photographing dead bodies, and wants to meet known gangster Jason Morgan. And when he meets him, he asks for nothing more than common decency.

There are six more layers in that dip than the complexity of that writing.
Joel, you don't even know the half of it!
(Looks at picture of James Franco) Did you lose a bet or something? Here's what we don't know: why is James Franco playing a character on General Hospital, and does his character want to kill Jason Morgan, or make love to him?

Those eHarmony first dates are always very awkward. (To James Franco's picture) Seriously, do you have a huge debt or something?
And! Tonight, James Franco hosts Saturday Night Live for the second time, proving that he has some sort of affection, or maybe pity, for shows with horrendous writing.
He was very funny the last time he hosted (I know I am not the most reliable judge of his performances, on account of the crazy, but he was!), so I am as optimistic as I can possibly be about an episode of SNL. Although if they do a Gilly sketch, all bets are off.
