Ray Lewis, NFL linebacker and the center of a lot of the focus surrounding the 2013 Super Bowl, is a very, uh, emotional guy. He screams and shouts and dances and is prone to crying. Naturally, with the Super Bowl approaching, 'SNL' took notice of this and included a bit on Weekend Update that featured an overly emotional Ray Lewis (Kenan Thompson) who can't stop crying. Ray Lewis himself saw it and...? He cried.
'SNL's recent run of putting musicians in the hosting position may have failed to impress, between such stars as Maroon 5's Adam Levine, Bruno Mars, and likely this Saturday's Justin Bieber double-feature, but movie stars will take back the limelight on February 16 when 'Django Unchained' and 'Inglorious Basterds' star Christoph Waltz takes the stage as host for the first time! Joined by the Alabama Shakes, what can we expect from Waltz's first turn on the 'SNL' stage? Find out inside!
As much as we enjoy Jay Pharoah's President Obama, he has nothing on Jason Sudeikis' Joe Biden. In the vast land of SNL political impressions, the veteran cast member's take on the Vice President of the United States is definitely top tier, generally stealing the spotlight from whoever else he is sharing the stage with. That means that a sketch completely centered around Biden's post-reelection victory party is more than welcome.
When Andy Samberg left SNL, we thought we'd never see another Lonely Island music video on the show again. This is a situation where we're ecstatic to have been wrong! Samberg and his crew (including a few cameos that you're bound to recognize) are back with a new song and new video and it's one of their best.
With Jennifer Lawrence hosting, it was finally time for SNL to go after one of the biggest cultural phenomenons in the world: 'The Hunger Games.' The sketch finds Lawrence back in the shoes of Katniss Everdeen, fresh off her joint victory with Peeta and ready to take on the only thing more horrifying than the games themselves: the press conference that follows them.
Welcome back, SNL! Everyone's simultaneously beloved and hated live sketch comedy show returned last night after its holiday break and, naturally, they had to play catch-up, making fun of everything that they missed in the past couple of weeks. First on their list? 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.' Or rather, its eighteen sequels.
At long last, 'SNL' will finally return from its hiatus with this Saturday's Jennifer Lawrence-hosted episode, fresh off her Golden Globe win for 'Silver Linings Playbook.' Joining the 'Hunger Games' star for her inaugural hosting turn will be that of folk-rock band The Lumineers, but what can we expect based on NBC's first 'SNL' promos with Jennifer Lawrence? Get a sneak peek at this weekend's all-new 'SNL' with Jennifer Lawrence inside!
Sometimes 'Saturday Night Live' is smart. Sometimes 'Saturday Night Live' uses a sketch to make a point or skewer an topic worthy of parody. Sometimes, 'Saturday Night Live' sketches have pretty clear points. Not this one. This sketch feels like it was thought up at three o'clock in the morning on Friday by a group of writers with only a few hours of sleep between them...and it's kind of amazing. It's the hardest game show of all time: contestants look at a picture and must figure out if they're looking at actor Dermot Mulroney or actor Dylan McDermott.
Last night, Saturday Night Live took on a target that's been pretty ripe for parody for some time now: the films and work of Tyler Perry, AKA, Madea, AKA, Alex Cross. In the case of this very funny digital short, it turns out that they're one in the same...literally. As in Cross and Madea are split personalities inhabiting the same body and they must work together to solve mysteries. Yeah, it's weird.
Talk about your Christmas come early! A few weeks ago during Jeremy Renner's stint hosting 'SNL,' we were ecstatic to learn that 'Django Unchained' star Jamie Foxx would return to hosting duties for the third time on December 8, with musical guest Ne-Yo. Now, 'Saturday Night Live' has unwrapped its best Christmas present yet, returning alumni Martin Short to the stage as host of the December 15 outing, accompanied by none other than musical legend Paul McCartney!
