Last night, Chris Hemsworth returned to Studio 8H to host Saturday Night Live for a second time, proving that he’s one of those hosts who can come back anytime and have a lot of fun. He’s not quite on par with Justin Timberlake, but he’s charismatic, funny, and really throws himself into every sketch. He didn’t suit up as Thor this time, but if you’ve always wanted to see him in a dress, now is your chance. We recap all the sketches from the whole Chris Hemsworth Saturday Night Live episode below!
Star Wars Toy Commercial – It’s not just because this is a Star Wars-themed sketch, this is just a great mockery of certain kind of adult Star Wars collectors who are really particular about what they do with their toys. God help you if you don’t make the figures fight correctly or make the Millennium Falcon land the right way.
Time to Bleed – Whenever one of our main characters gets shot in a movie, it’s never as big of a deal as it should be. They take the bullet, but still do what they need to do in order to be the hero. And that’s where this great short begins, but then the macho attitude about not getting the bullet wound taken care of gets out of hand. It’s a brilliant premise and it’s executed fantastically, including Sasheer Zamata’s role as Chris Hemsworth’s partner.
George W. Bush – Since SNL hasn’t had much luck with their parody of Donald Trump, mostly because they let him host and his persona is already too ridiculous for spoof, it was time to go back to the well with the return of Will Ferrell as George W. Bush. The former president puts his hat back in the ring by showing how much better he is that the current pool of candidates for the GOP. It’s a little easy, but Ferrell’s Bush is always a treat.
