James Franco SNL Hallmark Channel Christmas Skit

James Franco Plays Hot Santa in This Painfully Accurate Hallmark Parody

Though widely viewed and adored, Hallmark's original holiday movies can get a little formulaic. Like, why are they always starring the same actors? And wasn't that same exact gazebo featured in the last one? Saturday Night Live recently took on this holiday phenomenon in a spot-on skit starring James Franco.

The skit opens up with the following narration: "From the people who bring you one-sentence greeting cards comes 21 full-length original Christmas movies." In the first movie, Yes, Santa!, Chris Bearstick (Franco) portrays a young Santa Claus who pretty much encourages a woman to cheat on her workaholic fiancé. His other movie, Prince Santa, is just as ridiculous. All in all, the parody made us feel very exposed for our holiday entertainment preferences. Enjoy!
