‘SNL’ Preview: Martin Freeman and Kate McKinnon Ring in ‘The Hobbit’’s End
This past weekend’s latest ‘SNL’ with three-time host James Franco didn’t quite bring anything new to the table, but will the series have better luck with fresh blood from Martin Freeman? The first promos for the ‘Sherlock’ star’s guest turn have arrived, and don’t worry, there’s plenty of ‘Hobbit’ references and British-isms for everyone.
Paired with the always on-point Kate McKinnon, Martin Freeman’s first ‘SNL’ promos predictably name-drop his work in everything from FX’s ‘Fargo’ to the original ‘Office,’ but one should never let those get in the way of a good dance party. Plus, were you wondering if they’d manage to include a tea party, or a Benny Hill chase scene? Good news, everyone!
Accompanying Freeman as musical guest will be Charli XCX, while the following week will see ‘Batman vs. Superman’ and ‘Big Eyes’ star Amy Adams returning to the ‘SNL’ stage alongside One Direction for the final installment of the year.
