SNL Gave Kim and Kanye Their Own Talk Show (video)
“Saturday Night Live” took a chance on some Kaney rage this weekend and parodied a man who HATE being parodied… Jay Pharoah and Nasim Pedrad played Kanye and Kim Kardashian in a talk show spoof, “Waking Up with Kimye.”
Kerry Washington Jokes About Lack Of Black Females In SNL Cast (video)
Kerry Washington first time gig as SNL host was last night, and she sure started with a bang: The opening sketch razz itself over SNL’s decided lack of black female cast members. In a Cold Open set at the White House, Washington played Michelle Obama. Then Oprah. Then Beyonce… Then this statement rolls: “The producers at Saturday Night Live would like to apologize to Kerry Washington for the number of black women she will be asked to play tonight.” Further, “We agree this is not an ideal situation and look forward to rectifying it in the future—unless, of course, we fall in love with another white guy first.”
Al Sharpton also made a surprise guest appearance and says: “What have we learned from this sketch?” he asks. “As usual, nothing.”
A Wes Anderson Horror Movie Should Be A Real Thing (video)
Edward Norton was an amazing host during last night’s SNL show, but my personal favorite moment of the episode comes from “the twisted mind of Wes Anderson,” — The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders… I know this is a parody but this needs to happen.
Jesse Pinkman Is All For Obamacare (video)
Aaron Paul made a surprise appearance as Jesse Pinkman to discuss Obamacare and how a friend of his had to turn to cooking meth to pay his health bills… you know who he’s talking about, right?
Kevin Hart Is Pope Quvenzhane Wallis (video)
Kevin Hart hosted SNL last night and he made sure we noticed.
Two of the sketches that have people talking today were:
1. Hart joining The Walking Dead cast, all while playing the race card to disguise the fact he’d been bitten by a zombie.
2. Hart playing little Quvenzhane Wallis as the Vatican presents the 9-year-old as the new Pope
Justin Timberlake Hosting SNL For Fifth Time
It’s a five-time host title for Justin Timberlake who is returning to “Saturday Night Live” on March 9 to host and perform as the musical guest.
Timberlake has been pushing a music comeback after spending some time in the movie business. His third studio album, “The 20/20 Experience,” is scheduled for a March 19 release date. The album is his first in seven years, and the debut single “Suit & Tie” was released in January.
Timberlake is one of the most popular “SNL” hosts of recent years. His musical collaborations with comedy/hip-hop trio The Lonely Island, notably “Dick in a Box” and “Motherlover,” were standout hits.
The Grammy winner even once said that he would be an “SNL” cast member if offered.
SNL’s ‘Djesus Uncrossed’: Funny Or Offending? (video)
“Saturday Night Live” took a big chance this past Saturday with their highly offending –and hilarious– “Djesus Uncrossed” sketch, which puts Jesus Christ in a Tarantino-directed, ultra-violent revenge flick akin to “Django Unchained.”
It depicted the Son of God as opting to not sit at the right hand of the Father after rising from the dead, and instead kicking the asses of those who crucified him.
Djesus, played by “Django” co-star Christoph Waltz, leaves the cave where his body lies, and instead of ascending to heaven, he goes off to kill as many Romans as possible.
The trailer also gives nods to other Tarantino movies, with Brad Pitt (Taran Killam) in “Inglourious Basterds” mode playing St. Peter, with Christ’s Apostles as the Basterds themselves. Ving Rhames (Kenan Thompson) plays Pontius Pilate as Marcellus Wallace of “Pulp Fiction,” and Samuel L. Jackson (Jay Pharoah) fills out the cast as Judas Iscariot.
Hilarious or offending? You be the judge:
The Lonely Island Is Back! (video)
It’s been almost a year since Andy Samberg left “Saturday Night Live,” so it was a nice surprise to see The Lonely Island back on the show this weekend with Jorma, Akiva and a brand new jam.
Borrowing this weekend’s host Adam Levine as well as musical guest Kendrick Lamar, The Lonley Island reunited to present “YOLO,” a cautionary anthem about truly getting the most out of life.
