Watch: The Franco Makes Meta Jokes About James Franco On 'General Hospital'

We should've seen this one coming. Just a couple days before James Franco hosts the Oscars, the actor reprised his role as the murderous The Franco on "General Hospital" in a brief cameo today. Vulture captured the moment for eternity and who knew so much awesomeness could be packed into a clip that runs just about a minute and a half. The self-portraits! The eye rolling one liners referencing the Oscars and "127 Hours"! It's all there, it's all amazing and it's probably about 10 times more entertaining than watching that red carpet stuff on Sunday evening (but you know we'll be watching it anyway; check out our live blog on Sunday for all of our zingers).
