Video: Taylor Swift and James Franco Make Surprise Cameo on Seth Rogen-Hosted 'SNL'


The 'Neighbors' star pokes fun at Franco's attempted hookup with a 17-year-old in his star-studded monologue, which also features Zooey Deschanel.

Seth Rogen enlisted the help of his celebrity friends when hosting "Saturday Night Live" on April 12. He was joined by singer Taylor Swift, frequent co-star James Franco, and actress Zooey Deschanel during the show's monologue.

Franco showed up after Rogen poked fun at the "Spider-Man" actor's attempted hookup with a 17-year-old via social media. "I decided to prank James Franco. I posed as a girl on Instagram, told him I was way young," the "Neighbors" star joked. "He seemed unfazed. I have a date to meet him at the Ace Hotel." Franco claimed he'd been waiting for Rogan at the Ace Hotel for "three days."

Rogen, who insisted that he didn't need the help of his famous friends to boost the show's ratings, pretended to ignore Deschanel. Not giving up just yet, the "New Girl" beauty showed up again to play a ukulele.

Swift later joined him onstage. "Oh God, Taylor Swift, come on," Rogen said. "Why are you here?" The country music songstress, who was there to support good friend and musical guest Ed Sheeran, replied, "You were getting really upset. And whenever a man shows emotion, I appear!"

Franco also appeared in "Monster Pals" sketch, where he played a monster who got a human facial surgery after teased by Rogen for being ugly. Roger's other skits were less memorable. He played a Mob boss, Officer Kellogg from the DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education) program, and a pot dealer in some drug-related sketches.

The star-studded cameos failed to boost the show's ratings. The Rogen-hosted episode averaged a 3.9 household rating in the metered markets and a 2.1 in adults 18-49 in the markets with Local People Meters, down a tenth from last week's episode hosted by Anna Kendrick.
