Watch Seth Rogen's 'SNL' Monologue Get Crashed By His Celebrity Friends

When it comes to doing a "Saturday Night Live" monologue, you can't go wrong with a celebrity cameo. Or three.

Seth Rogen insisted on not getting any help from his famous friends during the opening of this weekend's episode with musical guest Ed Sheeran, but he ended up with a little more help than he could handle.

In the process, he tried to help his buddy James Franco gloss over his recent underage Instagram chat scandal by recalling from his "journal" that he pranked Franco with the messages.

Watch the video above to see that, plus Zooey Deschanel (and her adorable ukulele) and a totally random Taylor Swift appearance at the end.
