SNL Preview: Julia Louis-Dreyfus Remembers All Her Classic Character
Now that we’ve stumbled our way through the past weekend’s unremarkable Russell Crowe hour, SNL has a bright weekend ahead in returning former cast member Julia Louis-Dreyfus to the stage. The first official promos have arrived, as Julia remembers her classic SNL role … singular … as well as her hit HBO series, Beep.
Paired with Bobby Moynihan in a coffee shop (what, was Tom’s Restaurant out of the question?), the Veep star speaks to her own SNL past in the first clip, having been a cast member from 1982 to 1985. From there, the spot seems to recycle Cecily Strong’s botched remembrance of Peter Dinklage’s Game of Thrones role, as Moynihan praises Beep and Steinfeld.
For the moment at least, SNL has yet to release its final May hosts, though Dreyfus will be joined by musical guest Nick Jonas, a fellow alum of the series after performing with his brothers in years past.
You can check out the official first promos above, and stay tuned for more this weekend.
