As expected, this past weekend's 'SNL' installment featuring 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' star Edward Norton in his first hosting gig with musical guest Jenelle Monae proved largely uneven, though not without a few truly inspired bits. Sadly not among them was 'SNL's Halloween ballad "Don't Smash My Pumpkin," the deleted scene of which has made its way online.
Wes Anderson's incredibly distinctive style has been parodied before, but rarely with the skill that 'SNL' and host Edward Norton displayed in the most recent episode of everyone's favorite comedy variety show. A pre-recorded bit, the fake trailer for 'The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders,' imagines what an Anderson-directed horror movie would look like and the results are near perfect.
Edward Norton hosts an all-new episode of 'SNL' tonight, and though he hasn't starred in a film since last year's 'The Bourne Legacy,' it's great to see him on the 30 Rock stage. Norton, who recently guest-starred on an episode of 'The Simpsons' and who appears next in Wes Anderson's upcoming film 'The Grand Budapest Hotel,' is always a welcome presence on screens both big and small. So how did he do on tonight's 'SNL'? Read on for our review.
'SNL' may have taken a break this past weekend after the curious Bruce Willis-Katy Perry installment, but the NBC staple will return this Saturday for another experiment in first-time host Edward Norton, along with musical guest Janelle Monae. The first promos for Norton's Saturday hosting gig have hit, complete with requisite 'Fight Club' references, but are they a good sign of things to come?
Mileage definitely varied on 'SNL' this past weekend with Bruce Willis' first hosting stint since 1989, though amid all the "Boy Dance Parties" and centaurs, we were in for one definite bright spot. Upcoming 'Grand Budapest Hotel' star and former 'Hulk' Edward Norton will host 'SNL' for the first time on October 26, with musical guest Janelle Monae.
Two of our favorite things on the internet are the Zach Galifianakis 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island web shorts. They are equal parts hilarious. But what if we told you that 'Between Two Ferns' and The Lonely Island teamed up for one massive video about music, spring break and gay marriage starring James Franco and Ed Norton? It's hard to describe but you're just going to have to watch for yourself because it's hilarious.
'Fight Club' was more controversial than successful when it came out in 1999. But David Fincher's gritty and highly stylized film adaptation of novelist Chuck Palahniuk's meditation on consumerism and masculinity has only gained in stature since its release and is now considered to be a modern day screen classic.
See what the cast of 'Fight Club' is up to these days.
Boy, that Edward Norton sure likes playing priests. From playing a minister in 2000's 'Keeping the Faith' to one of his more famous roles as an altar boy in 'Primal Fear,' the 'Avengers' dropout and 'Bourne Legacy' star will once again be taking holy orders, portraying a priest for 'The Simpsons'' upcoming 24th season. But when Edward Norton hits the scene, what will become of Reverend Lovejoy?
