How Many Men Did James Franco Get It On With On SNL?

(Click to play)

Ya know how everyone says Levi Johnston is a gay icon? When he totally, completely isn’t? Well if we’re using such loose standards for the term, then James Franco isn’t just a gay icon, he’s a gay deity. Because at least he’s willing to smooch on other dudes on national television.

We’re not sure Franco’s SNL last night tops the absolute gayness of last week’s Taylor Lautner-hosted show, but it comes pretty damn close.

From smooching on his brother and grandpa (above) to playing Liberace’s fellatio receptacle James Dean on Vincent Price’s Christmas Special (below), it was a very queer … last SNL of the decade(!). Which would make us sad, if we weren’t able to repeatedly watch Franco tongue another dude.

(And we bet producers even knew about the same-sex kissing during rehearsal.)

      Wish I’d been there for a quick smooch. Oh well.

      I do nominate James as an honorary gay entitled to enjoy all the benefits of membership. Seconds, anyone?

      Worst Vincent Price impersonation ever. Sounded more like Carson’s old Tea Time Movie host Art Fern.

      There is nothing remotely gay about it. Gay is two men in love in a sexual and romantic way. Kissing your siblings and grandfather doesn’t fall in that category, no matter how exaggerated it is.

      I really like James Franco. The guy is down to earth, cool and completely comfortable with his sexuality. Oh and he’s cute too!

      James Franco may not yet be the finest actor around, but he’s oh-so-easy on the eyes and has some comedic chops too, which we got to see. Missed him on the soap opera [GH??], but watching him snog on SNL was a highlight of an unspectacular show. Glad to see him throw himself into the part, lips, hips, hair and all. Oh, those cheekbones!!

      Franco is researching a novel he is writing. Yup, true.

      You know how I know the religious zealots have become completely irrelevant everywhere outside of Utah? James Franco got a fake blow job on prime time major network television and no one batted an eye. Now that is progress!!

      Mike in Asheville, nee “in Brooklyn”, what do you mean by “honorary” gay?

      As much as the gay community would like that James Franco plays on our team, he is a player for the other team. One of the things that make him so attractive is his self-confidence in being who he is, comfortable about the gay community around him.

      So cheers to James, and an open invitation that should he like to take a walk on the gay wild side, do. In the meantime, James is honorary gay, as he accepts us, we should openly accept him, straight and all.

      That was really edgy! They had Liberace go down on James Dean! When Katherine Hepburn came up her mouth was covered in what was supposed to be foaming at the mouth from rabies, but made to look like Jiz! Great stuff.

      He also made out with a tree in this episode.

      I really love James Franco, he’s amazing and gorgeous. I admire him even more for being so confident in his sexuality and so willing to portray any sexuality his roles call for. The fact that such an admired, gorgeous, and talented actor is willing to seriously and satirically portray gay characters (his serious role being on MILK) puts the entire community one step closer to being thought of as people, not just gays, lesbians, or bisexuals.

      I seriously think he might be bisexual.

      That was a terrible, awful, horrendous impersonation of Vincent Price. James Franco is just a good actor who wants to broaden his horizons. Chill out people. SNL has gone to the dumps anyways. I had one mediocre laugh through out the entire clip.
