James Franco brings the term self-referential to a whole new level in this sneak peek from tomorrow's appearance on General Hosptial. Dressed in a tuxedo, he says he has "a big event to attend ... That's what I get for spending my spring between a rock and a hard place. Gosh, I hate cliches, but that was funny, right?" Right. Best Oscar promo yet. He even plugs his nomination for 127 Hours.
