Earlier this week, thousands of fans signed a petition directed at Saturday Night Live creator and executive producer Lorne Michaels to have him bring in Ryan Reynolds to host the late night sketch show. However, these fans didn’t want Reynolds to host the show as himself as is customary for celebrities to do. Instead, they wanted Reynolds to host SNL as Deadpool, the box office topping, fourth wall breaking, smart ass mercenary.
Even though Lorne Michaels hasn’t responded to this petition, and he probably never will, Ryan Reynolds took the time to craft a response to this request by Deadpool fans. But he did it in exactly the kind of way that Deadpool would: by spoofing the timely leak of yet another rant that Kanye West went on backstage at Saturday Night Live when he was a musical guest last weekend.

It’s no secret that Deadpool is all the rage right now. The film exceeded expectations at the box office by nearly double what analysts thought it would take in, and it’s on track to win this coming weekend as well. And now that Deadpool is a certified movie star, fans want him to get the chance to do something that not every celebrity gets to do: host Saturday Night Live.
There’s a petition at Change.org (where all important movements start) that asks SNL boss Lorne Michaels to have Ryan Reynolds return to studio 8H, but they want him to host the late night sketch show in character as Deadpool. Too bad there’s almost zero possibility of that happening. Read More »
Last night, Melissa McCarthy returned to Saturday Night Live for her fifth time as host, which makes her part of the five-timers club. Well, at least that’s what she thought. But her little appearance during the SNL 40th anniversary special where she recreated Chris Farley’s iconic character of motivational speaker Matt Foley didn’t count. You can see how that realization pans out below along with our recap of the best and worst sketches from this Melissa McCarthy Saturday Night Live episode. Read More »
After once writing for the staple late night sketch show, comedian Larry David returned to Saturday Night Live as host this past weekend. The creator and star of Curb Your Enthusiasm and Seinfeld co-creator has been appearing on SNL this season as potential presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, but this is by far the most involvement David has ever had on the show. Thankfully, the episode was more than just David being himself, even though a couple sketches made use of the comedian’s trademark personality.

Just when you thought this season of Saturday Night Live had peaked with that Adam Driver episode, they go ahead and announce that the great Larry David will be guest hosting the show next month. The legendary comedian, best known for co-creating Seinfeld and starring in HBO’s great Curb Your Enthusiasm, has already guest starred twice this season, playing Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders to perfection…and calling guest host Donald Trump a racist on live television. So expect his episode to not skimp on the politics.

Last night brought the first new Saturday Night Live of 2016, and it just so happens that Adam Driver hosted during the first box office weekend that Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t take the #1 spot. However, The Force Awakens was still the talk of the weekend with a hilarious new sketch taking aim at Kylo Ren, and it wasn’t the only reference made to Star Wars during the episode. There was even more Disney fun to be had with Adam Driver playing Aladdin as well.
We recap that and all the sketches from the Adam Driver Saturday Night Live episode after the jump! Read More »
If you’ve seen Star Wars: The Force Awakens, then you know that Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) can have a bit of a temper when things don’t go his way. There’s already an Emo Kylo Ren account on Twitter and an animated short featuring the First Order commander freaking out during everyday situations. Now Kylo Ren wants to see what the employees at Starkiller Base really think of his management skills and attitude by disguising himself as a radar technician named Matt on the CBS reality series Undercover Boss in a new sketch from Saturday Night Live, which was hosted by Driver himself last night.

The last new episode of Saturday Night Live in 2015 hit the air last night, and with it came two favorite cast members returning to Studio 8H as hosts. However, despite the fact that Tina Fey and Amy Poehler both pulled hosting duties last night for the usually delightful episode that happens just before Christmas, this episode just didn’t quite pack the punch that it should have. There were still some solid sketches and a couple of cool surprises, but overall, this was just an average episode.

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!

Once Force Friday arrived back in September, it wasn’t just kids who were excited to get their hands on the new Star Wars: The Force Awakens toys. In fact, part of me wonders if there were more adults anxious to get their hands on some toys that night instead of the youngsters. But that doesn’t mean any of the toy commercials are geared towards adults…until now.
Last night, Saturday Night Live debuted a new Star Wars toy commercial for The Force Awakens action figures and playsets, complete with a wholly accurate representation of some adult collectors snatching up toys out there. Read More »
