James Franco Spoofs Soap Past in SNL Preview (PROMO)



James Franco's passion for soaps continues to inspire his art. The latest example of the former General Hospital guest star's nod to daytime is the preview for his role as SNL host.

The preview, titled James Franco's Forbidden Love, features Franco and Cecily Strong in what is a very telenovela-inspired teaser.

Franco portrayed the recurring role of Franco on General Hospital beginning in 2009. After his departure, the role was filled by former One Life to Live bad boy Roger Howarth.
