'SNL': Woody Harrelson Celebrates "A New Day" of Marijuana Laws

by Jacob Hall November 16, 2014 09:17 AM
Last night's ‘SNL’ was like a checklist of every possible and necessary Woody Harrelson joke. After all, if you've got him hosting your show, you have to do a ‘Hunger Games’ sketch and you have to do a ‘True Detective’ sketch. However, one subject reigns supreme when you talk about this acclaimed, award-winning actor: you have to do a marijuana sketch.

After all, few modern shows have grabbed pop culture by the collective lapels and shaken them so much quite like this HBO series, which saw Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey playing cops investigating a freaky, ritualistic murder. Since the second season of the show will feature a brand new cast and storyline, Weekend Update invited Harrelson and McConaughey to chat about their experience filming season one and to offer advice for everyone joining the show for season two.

When Woody Harrelson was revealed to be hosting ‘SNL’ just a few days before the new ‘Hunger Games’ movie was set to open in theaters, it was obvious that the massively popular franchise would, somehow, figure into at least one sketch. Surprisingly, that ended up being the opening monologue, which featured Harrelson performing his own version of Taylor Swift's ‘1989.’ With a little help from some friends.

HBO has yet to formalize all of its ‘True Detective’ season 2 leads, having only officially confirmed Colin Farrell and Vince Vaughn, but as with the last round of support casting we’d heard, the rabbit hole goes only deeper. Lolita Davidovich and ‘True Blood’ alum James Frain are the latest to join HBO’s hotly-anticipated follow-up, though their ‘True Detective’ season 2 roles don’t exactly clear up our questions.

"Pete! What did I say?! We're not doing an Aaron Sorkin sketch!" The Aaron Sorkin parody sketch has been done before, done well, and then ceaselessly imitated. It's old material, people, and the world doesn't need any more old-- wait. Wait, no, no, we were wrong, because Seth Meyers has just breathed spectacular new life into the Aaron Sorkin sketch, thanks to a cleverly designed send-up from last night's episode of 'Late Night With Seth Meyers.'
