SNL Ranked: Chris Hemsworth Is an Electric Host

by Britt Hayes March 8, 2015 @ 9:27 AM
Chris Hemsworth has shown off his charisma, brawn and even a little wink of humor in the Marvel movie universe, but we’ve never seen him tackle flat-out comedy. Thor takes the SNL stage as this week’s host packing that signature charm and some solid comedic skills. The great time he has hosting the show is so infectious that it makes even the lesser sketches fun to watch. Read on for this week’s SNL rankings, from the best to the least memorable.

SNL Gathers the Four Hemsworth Brothers Together to Answer Some Questions

by Jacob Hall March 8, 2015 @ 9:22 AM
Whenever SNL breaks out the “guest host answers audience questions” template for the opening monologue, it feels like a sign that the writers waited until the last possible moment to write this bit and couldn’t come up with anything better. And yet, when they use this formula for Chris Hemsworth, it works for one reason and one reason alone: their guest host has a couple of famous (and not-so-famous) brothers who can join him on stage.

SNL: Chris Hemsworth Falls in Love With a Chicken in Outer Space

by Jacob Hall March 8, 2015 @ 9:14 AM
It’s an SNL sketch premise so silly that it feels like it belongs in the early ’90s, not 2015. Taking place in the distant future, the scene asks us to believe that chickens have evolved to be more intelligent than humans and that a chicken could command a spaceship of human beings and, most importantly, that a crew member played by guest host Chris Hemsworth would fall in love with the chicken.

by Jacob Hall March 8, 2015 @ 9:07 AM
Fox’s new series Empire is huge. Like, insanely, impossibly, jaw-droppingly huge. In an age where ratings are steadily declining across the board as audiences cut cables and enter the brave new world of streaming, it’s a phenomenon. And like all phenomenons, it has to get targeted by SNL. In the most recent digital short, Empire is re-imagined with a brand new character: Chip the office manager, played by guest host Chris Hemsworth.

SNL: Chris Hemsworth’s Thor Parties Hard After Defeating Ultron

by Jacob Hall March 8, 2015 @ 8:55 AM
Did anyone think that SNL was going to get Chris Hemsworth to guest host and not do an Avengers sketch? Of course not! Although Avengers: Age of Ultron isn’t out for another two months, this bit takes place after the events of that film, following Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as they deal with the fallout from winning their toughest battle yet. Well, at least some of them are dealing with the fallout. Thor is just partying.

Adam Sandler Recalls How Much Chris Farley Used to Eat at SNL

Now give this a chance. It might sound boring – Adam Sandler talks about food with Conan O’Brien – but the former Saturday Night Live stars (Sandler was, of course, a cast member, while O’Brien as a long-time writer) have some pretty tall tales to share about their time on the show, specifically as it applies to meals.
