Welcome To The Club, JT
That’s what the Saturday Night Live alum declared during this week’s opening monologue, as a bevy of past hosts and players greeted Justin Timberlake into his fifth appearance on the NBC show.
But beyond the fancy smoking jacket, things haven’t worked out that well for all SNL graduates. Dan Ackroyd is now a bartender (order the Kristen Wiig), Chevy Chase orders Rolls Royces on the phone (and bills them to Martin), and Alec Baldwin and Tom Hanks are into man fights these days (think of the scene where Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio meet for the first time in Django Unchained).
Fellow member Candice Bergen also makes an appearance in the monologue: she wants the toilet seat up.
Andy Samberg, the “Vegan Shake” and Martin and Ackroyd’s classic Festrunk Brothers.
In a matchmaker skit hosted by Bill Hader, a bachelorette (Vanessa Bayer) looks for love from potential suitors she can’t see. Timberlake and Samberg reprise their roles as the sideburn, “mother-loving,” “D**k in a Box” duo, competing against a single Bobby Moynihan and a nostalgia-heavy appearance by the Festrunk Brothers from Czechoslovakia.
No changes are to be made to this player
