The Felicity Jones episode of Saturday Night Live last night was, sadly, a bit of a dud. The only Star Wars content was in her monologue, above. The rest was… Pretty meh, sadly. Nothing is hit-or-miss like SNL!
Lest we forget, Felicity Jones is hosting Saturday Night Live this coming weekend. Last time a Star Wars star hosted, we got Matt the Radar Technician, so, fingers crossed.
Outtakes and alternate takes from Saturday Night Live’s Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base sketch with Adam Driver from last week.
Last night’s Saturday Night Live was delayed by football, but it went off pretty well. Adam Driver was part of almost every sketch on his first time hosting (save for the cold open and Weekend Update,) but the highlight was no doubt Undercover Boss: Starkiller Base:
Tonight at 11:30/10:30c on NBC, Adam Driver hosts Saturday Night Live. Don’t forget!
Lightsaber jokes? Emo Kylo Ren? What will Adam Driver bring to Saturday Night Live?
Adam Driver will be the first of The Force Awakens cast to host Saturday Night Live come January 19. Dude does have comedy chops, so this is bound to be interesting.
Driver’s hosting was announced during last night’s airing of the Tina Fey/Amy Poehler winter finale, which not-so-shockingly featured no Star Wars sketches. Previous episodes this season have featured cameos from J.J. Abrams, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega, and a toy commercial parody.
J.J Abrams, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were on hand for last night’s Saturday Night Live… Among others.
Anything you can do to draw attention to your mouth is good. Clueless director Amy Heckerling is making a vampire romantic comedy. I can’t believe they found a way to actually might make me kind want to see a vampire movie. (No, Alicia Silverstone is not involved – Krysten Ritter is – but I am not one to resist a cheap Photoshop gag.) In related news Saturday Night Live’s Twilight spoof has been burning up the internet.
Mumble mumble fourth. The Los Angeles Times’ Geoff Boucher looks at the difficulty of making upcoming films for several different franchises: Lord of the Rings, Spider-Man, X-Men and Pirates of the Caribbean. On that note, io9 quotes the relevant parts of a /Film podcast where X2 screenwriter Michael Dougherty describes what X3 might have been.
Shocking! ‘Archival footage’ from that cheesy alien abduction movie actually fake. People, did we learn nothing from Blair Witch?
Zachary Quinto, Chris Pine and Leonard Nimoy showed up on Saturday Night Live last night.
Meanwhile, the film seems well on the way to a $76.5M opening weekend.
