One of the best things about Saturday Night Live alumni returning to host the show is a chance to see some of their iconic characters return. When it comes to modern SNL, you don't get much more iconic than Will Ferrell's George W. Bush, who returned to the show to rub elbows with Fred Armisen's Barack Obama and Jason Sudeikis' Joe Biden.
Though he's now a bona fide movie star, 'SNL' alum Will Ferrell clearly hasn't let his Hollywood status go to his head, judging by this just-released promo for the comedian's upcoming 'Saturday Night Live' hosting gig. Joined by 'SNL' vet, Jason Sudeikis, Ferrell proves he's not above donning a rainbow afro wig or a fur broach to get a laugh.
The elections are coming up and nobody can avoid it. It's the one time every four years in which Americans vote for the best candidate, or the "lesser of two evils." But what if you had to choose who was the best candidate for a government position between Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis? Yeah, it's a little difficult to choose who is the funnier person of the two.
Former 'SNL' castmember, Will Ferrell is taking to the studio 8H stage once again to host the show that made him a star. Ferrell's May 12th appearance follows those of fellow 'Saturday Night Live' alums, Jimmy Fallon and Maya Rudolph, who also had hosting gigs during this 37th season of the late night sketch show.
Though they didn't have the natural comic rhythms of Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly, Mark Wahlberg and Ferrell made for a potent combination in 'The Other Guys.' So it's no surprise the two will team up again for '3 Mississippi,' which just landed Sean Anders and John Morris as the writers on the film, with Anders set to direct.
