James Franco opened his “SNL” monologue by taking questions. In the audience were Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill. Rogen asked why he’s only hosted twice when Franco’s gotten to host more. See the video below of Franco’s “Saturday Night Live” monologue.

This marks the fourth time Franco has hosted the sketch comedy show. The actor made his “SNL” hosting debut back in 2008, alongside musical guest Kings Of Leon. He then returned the following year to host the show with Muse. Franco then came back five years later to host “Saturday Night Live” in December 2014.

The last time Franco hosted, he talked about how Sony was hacked in the days leading up to the release of his film The Interview. Not unexpectedly, Rogen crashed Franco’s monologue and said the hacker “released private photos from our phones,” including pictures of Rogen wearing control top pantyhose, Franco fast asleep on the toilet, the two of them sitting on Santa’s lap, and a photo of them cradling each other in bed like John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

In addition to the three previous times Franco has been on “SNL” as its host, he has also made cameos on the show. Just a few months before Rogen interrupted Franco’s monologue, the roles were reversed. Franco crashed Rogen’s April 2014 monologue, along with Zooey Deschanel and Taylor Swift. He also appeared as a panelist on the recurring sketch “What Up With That?”

A longtime fan of “SNL,” Franco even made a documentary about the show while getting a filmmaking degree from NYU in 2008. The movie, Saturday Night, offered a full-access look at the behind-the-scenes of the sketch comedy series over the course of one week.

The actor’s appearance on “Saturday Night Live” comes a day after the release of The Disaster Artist, which Franco directed and in which he stars. The film, based on the bestselling book of the name same, tells the real-life story of the making of a movie called The Room by Tommy Wiseau. A cult film since its release in 2003, The Room is “the best worst movie ever made,” Franco has said. Check out the video below of James Franco taking questions from Seth Rogen and Jonah Hill during his monologue on “SNL.”
