When Lorne Michaels is producing a movie, it’s probably pretty easy to get a bunch of former and current SNL cast members to show up for cameo appearances. Michaels produced the upcoming indie comedy Staten Island Summer, which the trailer sells as a solid coming of age tale even without all those SNL cameos — though they probably won’t hurt.
SNL took a short break after Avengers star Chris Hemsworth put the hammer down on the long-running NBC sketch comedy, though an even more muscular outing will arrive this Saturday with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s fourth hosting. Check out the first promo of SNL’s last March installment, G.I. Joe references and all!
You know Nick Kroll best for his comedic work, and while there’s certainly some of that on display in the trailer for Adult Beginners, we also get to see a bit of his more vulnerable and sensitive side. The first trailer for the new indie dramedy has plenty of laughs and several familiar funny faces, but it also promises to be a thoughtful and insightful film about coming-of-middle-age.
After the infuriating events surrounding the Sony hack and the terrorist threat surrounding the now-cancelled release of ‘The Interview,’ it was incredibly satisfying to watch ‘SNL’ take on the whole controversy in the latest edition of Weekend Update. However, what begins as a pretty standard (and even deliberately lame) joke evolves into something far more surprising and funny.
‘SNL’ has rarely been afraid to wade into current events, so it‘s not surprising that the show took some time to focus on the recent hubbub surrounding new immigration policies and executive orders. And since the show realizes that not everyone is up to date on the political process, it uses the shorthand of the beloved series ‘Schoolhouse Rock’ to remind everyone of the necessary details.
This past weekend’s ‘SNL’ installment under ‘The Hunger Games’ star Woody Harrelson took home the gold for best episode of the 40th anniversary season to date, but will ‘Annie’ star Cameron Diaz seize the throne for herself? Find out, as Diaz lays claim to New York City and details her sordid past with Bobby Moynihan in the first promos of this weekend’s latest ‘SNL’!
'SNL' already gave us an exciting preview of this Saturday's November opener with news that Prince would perform an eight-minute jam session set instead of the usual 2 songs, but now it's Chris Rock's turn in the spotlight. Watch the one-time 'SNL' star break the usual promo format to hit the streets with Bobby Moynihan, and maybe, just maybe, throw in a Prince cameo!
With all of the new and new-ish faces on 'SNL's Weekend Update lately, it's always nice when a familiar character pops up to restore the show's equilibrium for a few minutes. Since we can't have Stefon on the regular anymore, we'll happily settle for Bobby Moynihan's Drunk Uncle, who returned to the show last night with a thing or two to say about Halloween.
After watching Bill Hader host ‘SNL,’ I think there’s a chance that we all undervalued him while he was actually on the show. And I write this knowing that Hader actually was highly valued, but maybe it wasn’t enough. Hader is this generation’s Phil Hartman. It really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that he makes the perfect host. And it’s evident that ‘SNL’ really hasn’t figured out quite how to replace Hader yet; he fits so effortlessly into this cast. Hader has a way of elevating everything, and that’s why last night we got one of the best ‘SNL’’s in recent memory.
