Everyone, James Franco has big plans for his third time hosting “Saturday Night Live.” Big plans.
In the above promos, the actor reveals that — due to all of the “cool experimental stuff” he likes to do — this week’s show is going to be in black-and-white and 3D. And although it’s highly doubtful that Lorne Michaels is actually going to let Franco take charge of the show’s artistic direction, fans can hope that one day the actor will have his 3D dreams realized.
For now, according to Cecily Strong, if Franco thinks of something happy and just believes, one of his wishes will come true. So, washing himself over with “Christmas magic,” the actor chants “believe, believe, believe,” and a sandwich suddenly appears in his hands. As Franco says, “It’s a Christmas miracle!”
In the rest of the clip, Franco shows off his ability to go to one of his Yale classes and shoot a movie in mere seconds and admits that the only reason he’s hosting the show is so he can get laid. Also look out for a cameo appearance by a former denizen of “30 Rock.”
