Watch Riff Raff As “James Franko” In One Life To Live
Last time on James Franco Vs. Riff Raff, we reported that the rapper would mirror one of Franco’s postmodern art stunts — appearing on General Hospital — by taking a cameo role on soap One Life To Live as a character named James Franko. If you’ve been following the drama between these two, Riffy was none-too-pleased when the actor cited rapper Dangeruss as the inspiration for his role as Alien in Harmony Korine’s Spring Breakers. I wouldn’t call Riff Raff’s guest spot on One Life a retaliation, so much as a deft display of being a better performance artist than any of us imagined and his long-standing project (which he’s been publicly committed to since he was a contestant on MTV’s From G’s To Gents in 2008) truly out-Francos Franco. Or, he’s just a rapper scorned and soap opera acting gigs are the new dis tracks. Either way, Riff Raff is a superior actor compared to the rest of the cast he appears with (supporting the former theory), even though he seems to be playing himself (“I came to get my moneys. I need my fettucinis!”). Check it out below. It’s something else.
